My Favorite Holiday Look.

Top: Forever 21 {OBSESSED!} // Skirt: Abercrombie & Fitch {not online, very similar here!} // Blazer: Forever 21 // Shoes: Nine West {similar pair} // Necklace: J. Crew Factory // Lips: Revlon Super Lustrous Lipstick in Demure 

     So excited to be sharing my first outfit post for 2016! This was one of my favorite looks that I wore during the weeks that I was home for Winter Break. I actually wore this outfit on Christmas Day for my mom's side of the family's annual Christmas party, since it was so mild over the holidays in Maine this year!

     I am pretty much obsessed with each piece that I am wearing in this outfit. My shoes, top, and skirt are all new! I never would have originally thought to pair all of them together, but sometimes playing around in my closet (or suitcases, in the case of being home) can lead to some surprising yet awesome outfits. Plaid and sequins are two essential styles for winter, so why not wear them both together?! 

     Hope that everyone had a wonderful weekend! Mine was pretty mellow... I dog-sat for a couple of cute dogs over the weekend, started a new series on Netflix, saw my best friend from my former college, and just all around tried to relax before school starts! Only one more week of break left!
