When my sister and I were kids, our parents used to treat us to a new “Christmas dress” every year…partly out of necessity (we’d outgrown the previous one!) and partly because it was our own little family tradition!!
I haven’t outgrown a dress in ages…but I’ve kept up with the tradition of a shiny new holiday outfit pretty much every year. Nowadays, though, I don’t always go for a Christmas dress; sometimes it’s an embellished top or a special skirt that catches my eye. But this was the first year that I’ve gone for a holiday suit with pants and a matching jacket. In fact, I’ve never owned a suit in my entire life…until now!!
Obviously, I’m not wearing the entire suit – a find from H&M – today; that’ll be coming up in another post, so stay tuned!! But these slouchy striped trousers are a hit on their own, too; the ideal go-with for today’s faux-fur pullover and leopard-socks-with-studded-shoes combo.
Yes!! I’m wearing socks!! I still insist that I don’t like ’em…and yet, as far as socks go, these leopard-pattern ankle-highs are sort of cute. Socks as my new style resolution for 2017, maybe?? I guess we’ll have to wait and see!! 😉
P.S. Best wishes to all my dear readers for a very healthy and Happy New Year!!
