Happy Monday, friends! Who is excited about the short work week? I know I am ready to overindulge on Thursday…it’s a little sad how excited I am. Don’t judge.
Speaking of judging…I have another confession to make today. I started listening to Christmas music yesterday. I’ve been looking for it on Sirius radio for a few weeks and Rudy finally found a channel. We listened to it on the way to church and then I had a lip sync session on my way to meet Lindsey at the mall. By the time I arrived, I was 100% in the Christmas spirit. I truly love this time of year, so when I got home I started pulling out all of our decorations and began setting up our Christmas village. Rudy and I set up our first Christmas village last year and it was rather small, but we bought a lot of things after the holiday and now we have a rather large village. My mother-in-law and I worked on it for hours last night and are not done yet. I’ll try to snap a picture and share soon.
Now that cooler temps have arrived here in NC, I have been able to wear several pieces that I purchased during Nordstrom’s Anniversary sale in July. Luckily, several outerwear pieces are still available so I am going to share them with you over the next few weeks. I’m taking a simple outfit (consisting of a white top with jeans) to show how you can create two different looks by simply changing the top layer.
For the first look, I added a fringe poncho. I love the color of the stripes because you could style it with either black or brown. I opted for my black booties because they are super comfy. I will admit that this poncho photographs rather bulky, but it didn’t feel that way when I had it on. It’s rather thin but it does keep you warm. I wanted to have a collar, so I decided to add a denim vest under the poncho for a little more interest.
You can shop this look by clicking on icons below. I’ll share my second look next week!
