Christmas Goodies: Dressing Up the Wardobe

My family (including my "new" family in Dan's fam) knows that I am pretty easy to please when it comes to clothes and accessories. I don't have a particular style and am happy and excited to incorporate new things into my wardrobe.

I got one of the biggest items on my wish list: a pair of saddle-colored, knee-high boots with a medium heel! My in-laws gifted me with one of the pairs on my November "Boot Envy" post... the gorgeous Arturo Chiangs from Not to mention Dan and I had a great time visiting his rents in Florida. :)

Both black and brown have been marked down to $89.99 on Piper Lime (a steal). Note - since posting this, I've read several complaints on Piper Lime that these boots are not real leather - so buyer beware.)

Wahoo! I am already brainstorming all the ways I can wear these boots. Like with this dress. Oh, and this one...

LOOVE this cream, wool cowl neck sweater my dad and stepmom snagged at The GAP. They know that from my high school days working there, I very much like GAP and its classic yet modern looks. What I love about this sweater is that I can dress it up (wear it to work with patterned pencil skirt) or dress it down (wear it with skinny jeans and my new brown boots).

My good friend Lauren always spoils me with super cute, super thoughtful gifts (often shoes, purses and accessories). This year, she gave me a cobalt blue, studded clutch that I am head over heels for. This color (which is actually similar to a scarf she gave me a few years ago) matches about everything in my closet. Love.

Clutch by Urban Expressions (certified Vegan, btw). Link to Baghaus' collection of reasonably-priced Urban Expression bags here.

A Life Fulfilled hopes that all of your holidays were extra fantastic!
