The holidays are in full swing everywhere. With Thanksgiving in the rearview mirror, my focus has turned to Christmas and all the fun that entails. Dressing for holiday occasions can be a simple as an updated blouse and pants or all-out glam.
I chose a ruffled ivory blouse, black skirt, tights, and shoes and topped it all with a classic black coat.
I’m 5’4″, which is the tail end of most brands’ petite styling. I would never consider buying a Long Coat unless it was scaled for a petite woman because the sleeves and body would be too long, the armholes would be too deep and I would swim in it.
I accessorized with my vintage brooch, velvet scarf and my Grandmother’s faux Emerald and Diamond jewelry. I love the chance to wear the things she passed down to me and the holidays are a perfect time for them.
