Whew, I finally came up for some air and have a lovely look for you today.  Things sure are crazy when you're preparing for the holidays, aren't they?  This past weekend, we celebrated Christmas a week early with my boyfriend's family.  We had a wonderful time filled with food, wine galore, and a rowdy game of Taboo that ended up turning into a crazy game of Charades - it was a VERY fun night.

Despite how busy I've been, I still try to put together polished looks every day for work because I know it's the best way for me to avoid the "winter clothing slump".  The WCS is a syndrome I would best describe as boring pants + plain shoes + drab sweaters outfits because it's too cold in the morning and too dreary outside to muster up any energy to dress well.  This year, I am NOT letting WCS happen to me, and I won't let it happen to you either!

Here is an outfit I wore to work last week with black opaque tights.  I found a similar skirt on sale for $20 at TJ Maxx (but don't call me a maxxinista, because I am not going to lie, those commercials drive me a little batty!) and thought it would look so chic to wear head-to-toe black and throw on my favorite red coat and gold necklace for a little oomph.  I felt so late 50's/early 60's Mad Men-ish in this outfit!  It's wonderful what a classy outfit can do for my mood.  What do you think?


  1. This is such a gorgeous, classic look! Love, love love it!

  2. 100% GORGEOUS! I'd wear that in a hot minute. It is so perfect.

  3. Such a beautiful, classic and versatile look! Gorgeous!

  4. Ahh I occasionally find myself suffering from WCS! I love this outfit - that bag is so gorgeous! :)
