70 Degree December.








Cardigan: TJ Maxx {very similar here!} // Dress: H&M // Shoes: The Walking Company {similar here} // Sunglasses: Le Chateau {Canadian store} // Clutch: Towne & Reese {local Charlotte company! :-) } // Necklace: c/o A-List Greek Designs //  Bracelets: Alex & Ani // Rings: Charming Charlie // Lips: Nyx Matte Lipstick in Strawberry Daiquiri 



     Earlier in the year I shared my First Day of School outfit for fall semester on the blog... today I'm sharing what was my last day outfit!! Well- last day for first semester. Can't get too ahead of myselfm haha! As I shared in some of last week's posts, we were so blessed in Charlotte to have a very mild start to our month of December. I enjoyed weather in the 70s for all of my last days of class and final exam days! It made it a little hard to study and be productive, but it was wonderful to plant myself outside and get some work done at some of the many pretty spots on campus. 

     I think that this outfit is absolutely perfect for a warm winter day. Wearing a very casual LBD is great for winter because of the dark color, and this aztec cardigan added both a little bit of warmth and also a little color of the outfit! I got this aztec cardigan this summer at TJ Maxx on a whim one day, and I had no idea how much use I would get out of it this season. It's so cozy, and I wear it with so many different things! (This aztec cardigan is super similar to the one that I have.)


     Lastly, how fun is this adorable clutch from Towne & Reese?! Town & Reese is a Southern based jewelry and accessories company. They gained some national fame after Charlotte resident and former Bachelorette Emily Maynard wore some of their pieces on her season of the show! The sweet family that I babysat for this semester purchased this clutch for me as one of my Christmas gifts- I absolutely adore it! It's just my style, and I love the thoughtfulness behind the gift. :-)


     Happy week leading up to Christmas, y'all! Hope it's off to a great start for everyone! My time here at home in Maine is starting to fly by.





    P.S. Be sure to check out the new widget that I just added to the top of my blog- it features some fun sparkly fashion ideas for NYE style!
