Previously...

I'm not the best blogger come December. Between the shorter days, colder temperatures, and holiday parties my time for blogging is impacted BIG time. And rather than throw together a gift guide {because who really needs another one of those?!}, I thought I'd rewind to December of last year. 

So here are a few of my favorite December looks from 2013.

Looking back I can't tell you how thankful I am for the lack of snow right now. It definitely makes the recent grey skies a bit more bearable. Not to mention, I have some outfit inspiration for the rest of the week.

I have a thing for vests {see here, here, and just for good measure here}

But a fur vest?! Well slap me and call me smitten. On second thought, just call me smitten. I've worn the vest to work as well by wearing it with all black and a necklace. I see lots of potential in my new furry friend. Lots of potential, indeed.

Welp, Madwell has done it again {and if you're keeping score at home that's again, again again, again}. This weekend I was invited to a little Black Friday preview event at my local Madewell store and I walked away with this outfit. Which, coincidentally, was the exact outfit one of the shop girls was wearing. 

I had been eyeing these jeans for a while {I cannot say enough good things about Madewell's denim FYI} so with an extra 25% I was happy to finally bring this pair home with me. And well this sweater, how can you not love a cozy turtleneck number? I foresee this sweater being on repeat all of Thanksgiving weekend. Stylish and loose enough to successfully hide all the second helpings I'll be enjoying. Sounds perfect to me!

Anthropologie Holiday Fashion Show // Kenwood Mall

Last week I participated in the Anthropologie Holiday Fashion Show at Kenwood Mall {I still can't believe that actually happened!}. If you could see me through the computer screen, I'm still pinching myself. The internet and instagram are truly remarkable things. Thanks to a little hashtag action {#AnthroOpenCall} I was selected to participate in my local store's holiday fashion show.

Prior to the show I worked with one of the lovely stylists {shout out to Stephanie} to find my 3 looks. True to my usual self, I wanted to try on every thing in the store. The photos below are my 3 final looks. I am a bit surprised I ended up with 2 dresses and a skirt, seeing as I am in a total pants phase, but a girl's heart wants what it wants. And apparently my holiday style wants to feel super feminine.

Thanks again to the lovely ladies at the Kenwood Mall Anthropologie and the gals from the Paul Mitchell school for my hair and makeup. It was truly a great night!

Real talk, cropped tops are not even in the realm of possibility for me. There was a quick, fleeting, moment when I did buy one from Anthro. I thought maybe I could pull it off with a high waisted skirt, but then I realized no one makes a skirt that actually goes up to your boobs {which is what I would have needed to make said cropped top work}

So a faux crop top is what I'm left with, and that's a-okay. Being the Madewell fan that I am, this was pretty much destined to be in my closet. Throw in a 30% off sale and yep, well that was that. Welcome home faux cropped dress, welcome home indeed.
