Hi there! Happy Saturday, Christmas eve, first day of Hanukkah to all my lovely and wonderful readers out there. I had a wonderful day so far. l took my own advise and spent the day living by the moment. I had my favorite Starbucks Peppermint Mocha with cheese danish, followed by doing some last minute shopping, a nice manicure with my sister, family lunch at Red Lobsters. There, l tried experiencing mindful eating with my Bahama Mama. Boy, it never tested so good.
I returned home just to find out that my heating system froze on me and due to the holidays, I may not have a working heater until next Tuesday. Nonetheless, I am leaving in the moment and it’s kind of wonderful. l have my family surrounding me. l am following our Christmas tradition. We binge watch Christmas movies on Christmas movies. Now, I am sharing my thoughts with the most wonderful people. So, cold you cannot defeat me today I am warmed up by enjoying the moment.
My lovely readers, today I thought that I will share my outfit of the day. It was a dreary, cold and rainy day, and I spent it my way, in style.
Coeur de Vague Black V-Neck Split Hem Dress ($29): This is a crossover slit falls from the left hip to the right hem, providing freedom of movement and double the style for it can be worn zipped up as a dress or unzipped as a shirt. I actually like wearing it unzipped for that edgy look. You know there is a saying about black dress, it makes you look thin.
Worthington Long-Sleeve Turtleneck Sweater at JC Penney (on sale for $19.99): The formerly frumpy piece is now totally chic (and warm). Due to the cold weather outside l wore the dress with a body hugging, black turtleneck sweater underneath. l love how adding the turtleneck turned this outfit edgy and chic.
Eva Longoria Faux Leather Pants (on sale for $49 at the Limited): I actually love this pant. l got them during the Black Friday sale. l love how breathable and stretchable it is. Most of all, it looks amazing. I am so glad that I did because this beautiful pant is currently sold out. You can get a more affordable version at Forever 21 for only $24.50. I actually like the NYDJ version available at Bloomingdales on sale for $110.68. Get your favorite Version and give your on outfit an extra edge.
Complete the look with a pair of your favorite boots. l wore a pair of stylish outfit that I got from Zulily a while ago. l love these rainboots because how stylish they look, but you can wear your favorite, stylish pair.
My favorite, wonderful readers it was my absolute pleasure sharing my experience with you. l love wearing something comfortable but chic at the sometime. l am wearing my cozy sweater sitting under the comforter and enjoying the moment.
I hope you enjoy this post as much as I loved writing it. May you have a wonderful and warm Christmas and Hanukkah with your loved ones. Remember, enjoy the moments and your experience will be even more magical.
