Holiday Casual | Suede Vest & Caterpillar Necklace

Hello hello! I hope everyone is having a great Christmas so far. It was great spending time with the family and got to see my awesome nephew. Only thing that was missing was snow. Ah well, there’s always another year. =)

For my outfit today, I wanted to keep it casual and comfy, but still keep it festive and jolly. =) I have to thank my sister from CT for braving the cold with me and taking these photos. By the time we were done, our hands were freezing cold, so thank you L!

Zara suede vest (similar); the Limited blouse; Forever 21 skinny jeans; Elizabeth & James Blink Pumps; Bar III Caterpillar necklace; H&M and Jewelmint Savory bracelets; Michael Kors “Blair” Watch; Tom Ford sunnies; and Chanel 2.55 Reissue Large Bag;

When I saw this unusual necklace, I had to get it. It was such a unique piece and I can see a ton of different ways to wear it. I also picked up this vest few days ago and am absolutely loving it so far and these pumps came in just in time for the weekend. I’ve been eyeing them for a month or so and when I saw them on Hautelook, I decided to grab them. They are my first pair of pumps from Alice & Olivia and I just love the shape of these pumps. Since it was the holidays, I decided to take Chanel2 out for some fun. She doesn’t get to see the light of day too often, which is a shame. I have to make a mental note to take her out more often, that’s for sure.

My sisters and I made dinner last night for the holiday with each of us preparing a little something. As predicted, most of the dishes were Asian with the exception of my sister’s homemade apple pie and homemade Momofuku’s Milkbar Compost Cookies. Photos of the meal as well as the compost cookie recipe tutorial will come later in another post. The cookies came out nicely and so delish. In fact, I am almost done editing the recipe tutorial, so hopefully will be ready to post later this week. Anyways, I hope you enjoyed this post and thanks always for reading!
