Hi everyone! This week has been busy busy since the holiday. I snuck in that Black Friday post on Thanksgiving Day, and then had to work 40 hours in 4 days. I’m pretty sure I was barely alive on Tuesday (lol), and then back at it Wednesday. Thankfully I have to work tonight, and then off work for 10 days! There have been quite a few new arrivals at stores I’m excited to share with you all, I may have to head to the mall this weekend or early next week for try-on photos at LOFT – I love to see their new stuff in person!
I’ve been sharing when I have time over on Instagram since it’s so much easier to get a post up, but wanted to update with a roundup here and add any tidbits about outfits I don’t have the room for on IG (like sizing, textures, etc.). Hope you all had a great holiday!
I had fun with this outfit! Lots of color and bling! You could easily tone it down with blue/brown flats (there is blue in the plaid shirt) and nix the velvet clutch. I envisioned wearing this to my work Christmas party or if I was working Christmas Eve. I need to find some nice flat booties for work also. Now that we are back into “seasonal” hours, which are more days per week, but shorter shifts, I can get away with wearing comfortable booties. On cold days down here, I could easily wear this with tights and booties to work.

Tartan plaid. Always a holiday favorite. This shirt is a tunic, fits TTS, and perfect with leggings. Of course I had to make it a little more fun and add the leopard flats, but I honestly would wear it with the gold flats to work (in the above flatlay) also!

Oh what joy! Hehehe. I love this t-shirt. Love it. I think it’s meant to be sincere and joyful! But, if you’re like me, and work in retail…. interpretation is up to the reader. 😂 Because every time a technician hands me over to a cranky patient because of a situation out of my control, I will be pointing to the words on this t-shirt ha!
*note about skirt: My skirt is from last year and is black – this year’s version is a dark navy blue – the same look can be accomplished, and in my book you can keep the black shoes (or switch them out for navy…. or gold!)

Although the outfits above are crazy fun, and holiday outfits are meant to be bright & cheerful – I love the more serious tone of this outfit. It still has Christmas colors, but a little more office appropriate without the joyful and loud red color. I love both, but this traditional look has my heart. ❤️
