Cookie Swap Flannel Pop

img_7873 img_7885

Happy Monday guys!  I hope you all had a great weekend.  Today’s outfit is ready for even the most discerning of crowds.  I’m not totally sure why but cookie swaps always seem really stressful to me.  For one, I always worry about my outfit more when I’m going to an all female event (my trendy Thanksgiving dress was planned with all my fabulous female cousins in mind) and for another I have to prepare cookies that are visually appealing and also delicious (or buy a box, shh), not just make myself look presentable.  Luckily this ensemble takes away a lot of the pressure away from getting dressed!  Flannel has that cozy domestic “home for the holidays” vibe, the leather midi skirt is trendy and fashionable, while these classic black pumps make sure all the ladies know to make room for me at the big kids table.

Tulle

IMG_9743IMG_9702

Over the next few weeks, I’m going to be sharing some holiday inspired outfits that began at T.J.Maxx!  Their stores are absolutely stocked up right now for the holidays, and have pieces for every type of holiday gathering.  TJX brands have always been a great place to score designer pieces at affordable prices, but I have to say I was so impressed with their holiday selection this year.  As someone who will wear 95% sweaters for the next four months, believe me when I say their sweater game is strong.  Filled with vague holiday inspiration, they are perfect for the season but versatile enough to continue wearing throughout the rest of winter!  I will wear almost entirely sweaters to get togethers from Thanksgiving to New Year’s because I absolutely hate being cold, but it can be challenging to find new and exciting ways to wear a sweater than with a pair of jeans and riding boots.  So I’m challenging myself to find sweaters this season that I know will look just as cute with a festive skirt as with a pair of jeans!

I bought this LC Lauren Conrad tulle skirt last year and it was absolutely perfect for Christmas Eve, but I wasn’t sure I would be able to find another way to wear it this year.  Luckily as soon as I saw this Ivanka Trump sweater I knew it would be the perfect match, and even appropriate as early as Thanksgiving with a cooler color palette!  I adore Ivanka Trump’s entire line (we are birthday twins, after all!), but I often find it hard to justify the hefty price tags (I bought my favorite black boots at 50% off in February last year).  I’ve spotted so many to die for items at T.J.Maxx from my favorite designers, and the only thing I love more is the price tag.  I was able to find this sweater at Lord & Taylor online, but make sure you check your local store for it and other similar styles!
