Love these Bowtied-Beauty Boots, I've had them for months but just have not worn them that much. I usually go for more simple boots but these bows are just too cute!
If you were in New York City this past Saturday, you may have noticed the hordes of Santas that took over the city. The event was SantaCon, which is pretty much a gathering of people dressed up as Santas or other holiday costumes congregating in various parts of the city, imbibing and having a good time. I've never seen this before, and I was intrigued! I didn't want to invest in a Santa or an elf costume just yet, but I still wanted to look festive. I decided to go with a cozy cranberry colored t-neck dress & a faux fur vest to go with my striped Santa hat. I layered a thin knit turtleneck underneath for extra warmth. Sweater tights and boots were also key in staying warm. Luckily it was a beautiful day out, and it was a lot of fun traipsing around the city with a huge crowd of Santas.
After a full day of Santa-ing, I still had more holiday celebrating to do. I was invited to an "ugly sweater" holiday party where we went between several different apartments and enjoyed yummy punch and holiday sweets (I think my favorite was the pumpkin woopie pies at my friend Stephanie's apartment!) It was fun to see people's fun outfits, and I was amused that some of these "ugly sweaters" weren't really ugly at all. I didn't really prepare for this party, so I just wore my fair isle cardigan which felt holiday-ish to me. I'm just happy no one told me they loved my ugly sweater!
