Decking The Halls

Happy Monday!  Today’s post is just a quick one with a look at my outfit to decorate the Christmas tree.  I loved the idea of dressing myself in “tinsel”, but I wanted to make sure I kept the look anchored in classic styles so I didn’t give my mom a panic attack at what kind of life choices I was making when I showed up to decorate the tree in actual tinsel.

The Fairest (Isle) Of Them All

Happy Sunday, world! Fair Isle sweaters are such a huge weakness of mine (I cannot stop buying them year after year!)  I’m back in NYC this week visiting my family, so when I picked up this sweater at Old Navy a few weeks ago, it instantly reserved a spot in my suitcase.  It is perfect for Christmastide celebrations- still festive and fun, but cozy and not fussy.  With a car full of gifts and cookie trays, I was really tight on luggage space for myself when packing for this week.  Fair Isle sweaters, with their fun patterns, are perfect to wear on their own; so I didn’t need to worry about trying to find space for extra accessories and layers.  However this sweater is perfect for layering and accessorizing when you have your own closet available- check out some of my favorite ways below!
