There are three staples I love that I can count on in my closet every time the holidays roll around… lace, plaid and sparkles. These timeless looks are literally one of the reasons I get so excited for the holidays. This lace top is from JCrew, plaid flannel is from A&F, sparkly top is from XXI and cardigan is from Target. The lace top is perfect for Thanksgiving. I get double use out of the plaid flannel, since I can also wear it to a Buckeye game (score!) and the sparkle top I would wear to a Christmas party. What makes me even happier and makes me feel a little like Kate Middleton, since she knows how to repurpose her wardrobe with the best of them, is only one item out of these four was purchased this year. I’ll give you one guess (spoiler alert!)… it’s the sparkly top. 🙂
So, in order to be budget conscious this year, I decided to take my pent-up fashion energy out on my toddler and made sure to pick up one of each of these wardrobe staples at Carter’s for her the other day. Gotta start ’em young!
You can pair all three of these pieces with black skinny jeans or jeggings, a cute boot and be good to go. And last but not least, the best way, in my opinion, to pull all these looks together is with a classic red lip. The one piece I am still on the hunt for that also says holiday style to me is faux fur, in either a vest or wrap piece. TBD!
