I love me a good layered sweater moment, don't you? To be honest, I'm actually not a sweater poncho person but I just couldn't say no to this knit combo from Mango. I bet you didn't know that I'm actually wearing TWO knit sweater pieces that I paired together. One is a poncho style (I'm wearing it as a dress here) and the other is more of a cape style that has a turtleneck attached to the knit cape portion. Both pieces have very thick and cozy turtlenecks (my fav!) and it was really fun to wear these two pieces together.
Some people might say that I look like Elmo in this coat but I think I look like one big walking festive bundle of holiday joy. This coat is definitely a statement piece (I bought it last year from Nordstrom, it's by Topshop) and I love the beautiful deep red color and the teddy bear effect. It's just so FUN.
It wouldn't be the holiday season if I wasn't obsessively wearing red. I really do love the color red but find that I don't wear it as often as I should. I have discussed this topic here before but it still remains true. However, the holiday season is a completely different story. I really can't wear red enough. This season, I've had one new challenge to add to the holiday dressing mix since Baby Beeb is feeling quite large these days. Finding festive options that fit the bump has been proven to be interesting but I feel like I've found some great options to get me through the season.
The holiday seasons is my absolute favorite time of year. San Francisco turns into a festive wonderland and everyone is in the mood. There really is a magic in the air when you are in the city at this time of year and it cannot be beat. Jonny and I always try to pack in as many holiday themed activities as we can during December (there really aren't enough weekends to enjoy it all) so that we can really take advantage of the joy of the holiday season.
