If you couldn’t already tell by this photo, we got our first snow of the year this weekend! There is something so magical about the first snow, and it was so nice to watch it fall while I had a low key afternoon at my apartment. Ryan and I did manage to venture out to a nearby pub while the snow was still falling, which was the perfect way to end a snowy Saturday.
The snow also made me even more excited for Christmas, which is exactly two weeks away!
Today’s post came out the request of a reader for a casual holiday outfit. By the way, I love to receive reader requests, so keep them coming via blog comments or email! With the exception of Christmas Eve, my holiday outfits are pretty casual, so this idea was right up my alley.
I popped into J.Crew Factory where they had so many fun winter accessories with holiday colors, like this plaid scarf. I knew that it had just the right festive touch that I needed for this outfit. And while I didn’t necessarily plan to pick up another pair of camp socks, this red pair (also available in green) really completed the look. And, they’re only $5! Great idea for a stocking stuffer.
If purchasing an entirely new outfit isn’t in your budget, accessories are a great compromise. The socks and scarf together were under $20. While I would’ve liked to have a red sweater for this outfit, I couldn’t find one that I liked enough. I feel like this look is perfect for the holidays, but one I can wear through the rest of winter too.
