Now that December is here, I'm all about planning those holiday outfits. Now mind you, I hardly ever go to holiday parties, but I love planning for them... You can clearly see my logic is not flawed.
Let me just tell you what I went through to get this outfit. It's second-hand, and it was listed as a top and skirt on the site, which it is! But because they were separate they were each unavailable at different times. So first the top sold out, then the skirt, then the top became available again only to disappear quickly. finally, I found a size medium on eBay, and to my luck the skirt became available. I was finally able to buy them both! Just goes to show, when you really want something, it HAS TO work out.

Although they are a set, I love that they can be worn separately. The top with some black pants or skirt would make great holiday outfits. And believe me you want to grab this bustier top while it's still available, here and on Tradesy.
The tweed fabric is perfect for holiday outfits as well. I was worried it would look too grandma-ish but I think it's actually more interesting that way. The skirt can also be worn with some furry sweater; either way it would work for Christmas or New Year's Eve!
This outfit just wasn't complete without a coat. I love this long black coat with my holiday outfits. It's 'warm' but it doesn't look like I'm all bundled up, which is something I hate about winter clothes. It's also a great coat if you love minimalist styling.
I went with the minimal approach for the shoes as well. I didn't want anything to take away from the gold set so just some simple black pumps were enough. They are a staple for every wardrobe.
I hope you guys like this look, and stay tuned for more holiday outfits!
