The other day I picked up these gold and green vintage leather pants that sort of have this pink glow to them. I imagined them with a chunky sweater and heels short enough the wide-leg would still graze the cement when I walk. But something about wearing these odd pants made me want to push my style a bit further. When cleaning my closet a few weeks back, I tried on this blazer I’ve only worn twice. And while totally inpractical for my day to day life, it works for the gray space that is the busy, and yet still slow, holiday season.
This slowness is mostly compromised of parties that you arrive late to and stay even later at. It is a time of slowness that I often attribute to the train shuffle with heels or in a taxi after one too many glasses of presco later. The kind of slowness that exists woven into a conversation over candlight with garland and The Pogues playing kind of slow. You know?
For a month or so, I’m giving all of those things a go, and will really evaluate (and try to plan) if and when I need them past this odd magic whent the smoke settles. Until then, here’s my holiday outfit. Of course, there’s a tweak here and there while the weather shifts between 50 something and snowing within days.
Maybe you don’t own a pair of funky green/gold leather pants (with a pink hue. ha!), that’s fine. Whether it’s a beloved skirt, a comfy knit, or simply, a favorite pair of “holiday jeans” I’d love to know what you’re wearing this holiday season?!
