Chunky Knit Sweater x Velvet Bag

It’s Christmas week and I am so excited! I just love the holiday season because it really is the most wonderful time of the year. I’m looking forward to spending lots of quality time with my family and friends and eating way more than I should! I have finally finished all of my online shopping and with the last package rolling in tomorrow, I’ll be spending the next two days wrapping everything (please send scotch tape and help).

There are a few things I love more than a chunky knit sweater in the wintertime, although hot chocolate is a close second. This one from Rebecca Minkoff has been on repeat lately for a few reasons: it’s a neutral (my #1 all day every day), is really soft, and has the prettiest blousy sleeves. I like that it’s not a crop top but doesn’t need to be tucked in, either, and I’m hoping to add this color into the rotation as well!

Velvet is a huge trend right now and this classic bag is the perfect way to incorporate it into any look. I own two other bags from the Love Collection but I think this one is so fun for the wintertime! The little pom pom charm adds a bit of whimsy and can we take a moment to talk about these suede boots? I’m obsessed. They are so beautiful in person and I really can’t say enough good things about them! The boots can be dressed up or down, worn with a dress or pants, and are the perfect heel-height. They are very comfortable and I like how the shaft is a bit higher than a normal bootie. I also ordered these Chelsea boots (now on sale for $130 with an extra 30% off!) on Black Friday and I’m equally in love! #RMforthewin.

I am going to be taking the weekend off to enjoy the holiday with my family but will be back with two new posts next week! For those of you celebrating, I wish you a very Merry Christmas and Happy Chanukah! Sending lots of love to you this holiday season and always.
