This Time of Year

December 17, 2012

Aritzia coat, Club Monaco blouse, pumps c/o Joe Fresh, short necklace & ring c/o Brooklyn Designs,
long necklace c/o Keltie Leanne, bag c/o Roots, jeans c/o James Jeans, blazer c/o Spank

So apparently we’re just over a week from Christmas?! How exactly did that happen? I guess with planning for Deck Your Closet and keeping busy with a few other ventures, this month has been a bit more work than holiday play for me so far, and Christmas has entirely creeped up on me. I have so far gotten a total tally of 0 presents and don’t even know what everyone wants…this next week should be interesting (read: running around town in a frenzy trying to get everything with five days left to the big day).
One thing I’m fairly certain either of my sisters (or my mum, for that matter) would be completely happy with is a pair of James Jeans. My java coated Twiggy’s are hands-down my new go-to pants in my closet – the fit is unbelievable and I love the discrete sheen on them, which makes them so perfect for the holidays.
Speaking of the holidays, has everyone already decided on their New Year’s Eve dress, or are you all last-minuters like me?

    Another fabulous layered look, pally – and as usual, the colour palette is just spot on! Good luck with the frenzy of last minute shopping, it won't be as bad as you're thinking I'm sure 🙂

    I love the jeans! This whole look is so classic. I love it. I always end up in an LBD for New Years but I'm hoping for a glittery skirt this year.

    oh, New Year dress!!??!!! Haven't thought about it. Was so glad about myself that had at last chance on Saturday to do Christmas gift shopping. Thursday I have work party and yet still no clue what to wear. But I have completely forgot about New Year. I think everywhere people before Christmas are supper busy, even if we should enjoy this Christmas time. Can't wait for Christmas!
    Alexandra that coat looks so amazing on you. Sounds like great pair of jeans.
    Good luck!

    Hey Alexandra

    Have been reading your blog regularly and loving every bit of it. Yesterday I watched a Christmas movie about Santa and "Hunter Toys". Did you act in the movie? Just curious as the pretty girl in the movie resembled you so much.

    Yep, Christmas is right around the corner. Even though I don't celebrate it, my friends do and we all have fun with it. Love these gorgeous deep colors you are wearing, specially the coat, pants and shoes.
