Can you believe that Christmas is 5 days away! December always seems to fly by amongst the hustle of your daily routine, shopping for gifts, and holiday get togethers. The key to staying on track is planning ahead and being prepared, right? And I always say I’m going to do it but come December 20th I’m still shopping for some last minute gifts. The one thing I’m pretty great at remembering though is to plan ahead for outfits for holiday functions. For those holiday get togethers that are a little more casual I like to buy one top that makes a statement that I can wear to many different events. So, when I saw this Free People top in the New York City Flagship store a few weekends ago and it was finally available in my size, you best believe I scooped it up! And because of this top I’m 100% certain winter whites are totally a thing.
I paired it with some dark skinnies and knee-high distressed Bed Stu boots that I’m in loooove with. These babies are so durable, perfectly distressed, and have the cutest back detailing. Not to mention, the quality is amazing! I know they are a bit pricey but I truly believe they are worth it as you really can’t beat a good pair of boots that will last you years.
This top is just the right amount of casual but also a statement. I wore this one twice last weekend to two holiday get togethers and it was the perfect top. The detailing and the white mixed with the soft colors on the sleeves adds a girly flair since it’s oversized and hides your figure more. I plan to wear it many more times through the winter and into the spring, since the white transitions so well (Remember, cost per wear!) I’m thinking of pairing it with lighter wash destroyed denim and booties for the spring and even some distressed cutoffs for the summer.
I’m over here crossing the to-do’s off my list and getting ready for a week of rest and spending time with my family and friends. After the busy month of December I’m definitely ready to curl up by the fire, read a good book, and enjoy time with the ones I love! If you’re racing to finish up your Christmas shopping within the next few days though, don’t worry I’ve got you covered.
