The one week til Christmas countdown is on! We’re spending the day in the office finishing up the last bit of projects we have to complete before we fly to NYC first thing tomorrow morning. I’m anxiously waiting until we get back to California and have some downtime with family later this week. We’re going to be gone for a few weeks, so we’ve had to pack quite a bit, but I’ve stuck to sort of a neutral palette to mix and match for a low-key holiday. I’ve included pieces like this checked coat, simple turtlenecks in black and cream, my favorite jeans and my over the knee boots. Comfort is going to be key.
I love menswear inspired pieces like this Topshop coat, especially when paired with something more feminine, but it also looks really good with jeans and a white shirt. This one is a bit oversized so I can really layer thick knit sweaters under it. I know it’ll come in handy on those cool California coast nights. I paired it here with this Sandro skirt, which is almost in the exact same houndstooth print, but smaller.
I’ve had these Stuart Weitzman boots for a few years now and they’ve proven to be such a great buy. The 50/50 is probably my most-used style since I love how easy they slip on and off and a flat boot is just more practical than a tall one. There are a few styles on sale right now at Nordstrom, like this pair of Stuart Weitzman boots, this pair and this pair. These make a really great gift, too! I’ve bought both my sister and my mom a pair for past birthdays and Christmases. And if you’re looking for something a bit more budget friendly, there are some great options for under $150 here, here and here.
