Happy Friday everyone! It is officially 10 days until Christmas and I am rather embarrassed to say I am no where near being finished with my Christmas shopping. Good news is I know what presents I would like to get- it is just a matter of getting them (thank goodness for Amazon prime and Nordstrom). I am currently typing away from Phoenix, Arizona while listening to Kygo in the background and admittingly missing Chicago! Don’t get me wrong, exploring Scottsdale and Phoenix has been a blast but I am feeling a little home sick!
Whether you are in sun, snow or the in between, it’s never a bad thing to be a little extra and get dolled up for the holidays. I found my fur coat from Anthropologie and loved the white color and warmth of it (I have worn it out a few times already and no additional coat needed!) and have received so many compliments on it. You can pair it with just about anything underneath- a v-neck sweater, turtle neck or scoop neck looks great, your favorite pair of jeans and heels or booties. How I styled my outfit this time round was more for a holiday party or friendly get together.
I have worn my Steve Madden heels so much in the last few months because they are comfortable and can dress up any look. Also since velvet is in, I am obsessed with my clutch (comes in black and raspberry too!) and it is perfect for a night out. The purse is roomy so you can bring some makeup or hairspray for touch ups too. My gray v-neck underneath is older but Top Shop always has similar tops in stock.
I will be writing up a travel guide to Scottsdale/ Phoenix in the coming weeks but until then let the holiday parties, champagne and Christmas shopping continue!
