It started with a broach

25/30 [12/6/10]


With only 5 outfits remaining in the challenge, I’m fairly certain I’ve exhausted most of my “planned” ensembles. I was a little nervous standing in front of my closet without even an inkling as what to wear for the day. But then I remembered a recent What I Wore post – in which the ever fabulous Jessica used the most adorable broach.


Ah, a broach!


And so began the search through my {disheveled} junk drawer. Thankfully the sparkle from the broach gave it’s location away without much hassle. And with that I was on my way to this outfit. A sparkly belt & headband later and I was good to go. Although my colors aren’t very “tis the season”, I think the sparkle gives it a holiday flair.

Pin It!

  2. Wow, this looks so beautiful. Adding the broach (why do I feel like a grandma saying that word??) really makes this look so cute and sophisticated. I'm glad we all have such great inspiration every day! You're so close!!

  3. I love the holiday flair radiating from that brooch. Also, my good friend MKH has recently informed me that purple is and always has been a Christmas color. See? You were in season and didn't even know it.

    I love the way you paired the brooch with the gorgeous scarf, and that belt is the perfect touch, too. This is such a fabulous outfit, though it wasn't a "planned one."

  9. Ha, broach is kind of a grandma-ish word. I wish I could say it was vintage, but sadly it isn't.

  14. Wow do I love how you styled that scarf. Like I need to go buy scarves ASAP now.
    Is that a square scarf? or a longer skinnier one?
