T minus six days until Christmas! Can you believe this season flew by so quickly? My family arrives on Wednesday morning and Thomas and I have planned out some fun activities for the rest of the week. I’m looking forward to things slowing down a bit and having some quality time with family, showing them our new home. This is our first Christmas, and first holiday really, in our first home, so it’s definitely a memorable one. We also have lots of new stuff going on with the house that I’m looking forward to sharing with you guys in the new year (so weird to say that- it’s only weeks away!).
A while ago I got this J.Crew matching bow print cardigan and shell from Nordstrom and they’ve been two of my favorite pieces for the season. Even though it’s a classic combo, the bow print feels unexpectedly festive. Did you guys know that Nordstrom recently starting carrying J.Crew? It’s my spot for getting otherwise sold out items like this fair isle sweater, this pink ruffle sleeve top, this multistripe supersoft wool sweater, these silk pants or this oxford check coat that’s on sale! I definitely stocked up on a few last minute gifts for the holidays.
Another piece that’s always key in holiday dressing is a classic black skater skirt. I got this one a few years ago, but found two similar options from Nordstrom here and here. I’ve worn it in the summer and the spring, along with tights in the winter. The weather in Charleston has been up and down, with warmer temps on the horizon for this week, so I don’t think adding tights will be necessary anytime soon.
Thank you to Nordstrom & ShopStyle for sponsoring this post.
