I know this is a little late, but let's just pretend I posted this a few days ago. Anyway, this outfit was from Christmas Eve, when my parents, B, and I cooked a relatively elaborate meal (by our standards at least). Fun family bonding without the slightest hint of irony - 'tis the season. Hope you all enjoyed your vacation! Here's to a successful and stylish new year!

Such warm, Christmassy pictures! It all looks so very lovely. :)

That subtle gold sparkle in your cardigan is quite pretty. I like how it goes with the gold on your accessories, namely the purse and necklace.

It'a amazing how subtle colours sometimes garner more attention than bolder ones. The combination of cream with gold is genius and a fierce pair of heels just elevates this outfit to a heavenly status.

I thought I was over the holiday season, but seeing your pictures make me miss it already. Also, those pants are probably my favorite piece from your wardrobe. They are just so chic and flattering.
