It’s Christmas Time in the City

Francesca Battistelli – You’re Here (Mary’s Song)

Last year, I bought this skirt and a sweater or something to wear with it.  I kept trying it on in hopes of wearing it to one of the parties we were invited to, but I could never quite get it styled quite to my taste and then when I finally decided I was going to wear it anyway, it got too hot.

So for a year, this skirt has been hanging in my closet just begging to be worn somewhere. 

Next year, I told myself hoping that the gold skirt wouldn’t be too dated after a year.  To my surprise, gold is really in this year and there are a lot of cute things to wear with it.  Several times, I’ve found cute sweaters and tops that I thought would go well, but when I saw this jacket, the search was off.

There is truly something about having to wait a little while to wear something that you’ve been dreaming of for a while that makes it all the sweeter when you finally find just what you want to wear with it.  I just felt good in this outfit and I think it’s turned into my favorite party look of the season (well, at least so far). 

There are SO many cute clothes out this year.  I’m interested in knowing what great looks you guys put together for Christmas.  I’d really love to see them. 

Hope all of you are having a wonderful Christmas Season!

Skirt – Lane Bryant (last year, another gold skirt that I like at ASOS); Jacket – Old Navy; Top – Dressbarn (similar here); Handbag – Ralph Lauren (similar here); Shoes – Anne Klein.
