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.
I have always been a big fan of the classic white button down shirt. It's timeless and it always looks chic no matter what you pair it with. Of course, one of my favorite designers Anine Bing made the most incredible white button down shirt that always elevates any outfit I pair it with. I love that it's perfectly oversized (aka you don't look like you're swimming in it) and that it has a longer length in both the front and back, which is perfect for wearing over maternity jeans and leggings.
In partnership with San Francisco Magazine, I am proud to present my one page collaboration with the esteemed Longines. For years, Longines has been a pillar of timeless design and luxury. Personally, I find watches like Longines effortlessly chic and timeless as they are always in style and the designs never succumb to fleeting trends. To be partnering with a company as highly respected as Longines truly feels like a dream come true. Additionally, seeing my face in San Francisco magazine for the second time felt like a very surreal "pinch me" moment.
Even though I bought this outfit back in October, I 100% envisioned it for the holiday season. Don't you think it's just perfect for December? I love that it's festive without feeling too over the top. I mean, don't get me wrong, I adore over the top holiday looks as much as the next gal but there are times when wearing something that is still festive but a bit less sequin-y is the best option (think office party).
Being pregnant during the fall and winter time can cause some outerwear challenges, especially since I have found that I don't love feeling constricted by structured coats as often because they no longer button over my baby bump. However, my solution to this issue has been the sweater coat. Not only is the sweater coat warm, but it is less restrictive, which means I can wrap it around my belly without feeling like a stuffed sausage.
