Christmas Day went by in a flash for me. I was up really really early (4:30 a.m.) and had to wait for everyone else to wake up. We finally had to wake up The Boy or he would have slept all day, Christmas or not! Once presents were opened I was in the kitchen until our guests started arriving, still in my Christmas PJs (pj pants, tee, slippers).

I knew I was going to wear my new Cashmere Sweatpants. They were such a splurge, even with 40% off, but they were so cozy and comfortable once I put them on. I really didn’t think I would get into the sweatpants trend but they really did look nice with my Janey Printed Flats. (I chose a Leopard Kiki option in my image below.) I went with a size Small in the pants, based on the reviews, and I think I probably could go to an XS in these. They do stretch out a little. I’m hoping I can catch the Navy or Heather Acorn color on sale. Today’s the last day for 30% off on these.

The Merino Wool Pocket Tunic in Deep Forest has been waiting to be worn since I purchased it. The tunic was just enough warmth for the day. The stones in the Gemscape Layering Necklace (now on sale + 40% off!) paired well with the green tunic.

I am now officially on vacation, which is through all of next week and am totally ready for it. We are hoping to see some friends in Dallas for New Year’s. I’m shopped out right now but I’m sure I’ll be refreshed by the time we get to Dallas!

Have a Great Evening!

I loved the Harvest Moon Poncho in Maize so much I bought it in Ivory as well. Of the three remaining colors, I knew the Ivory would pair well with what’s currently in my closet. The Silk Sleeveless Blouse is one of the best and most favorite tops J Crew has offered. I would continue to buy these every season in the various colors offered, if that were to happen. They layer so well under cardigans and sweaters. I have all but one color and wear them often. I’ve had the original Origami Mini Skirt in Houndstooth (similar) for a few years now. I also have the other two colors as well (Jacquard, Peony). This ran small and I ended up sizing to a 10.

Along with my Corso Como Samual Boots, I added all Madewell jewelry to complete the look.

I’m trying to stay chic and cozy through the season, while also wearing something new or that I haven’t worn in a while.

I have a house-warming party this evening and another Christmas party on Saturday so there will be more Que Bella outfits to come next week.

Have a Great Day!

Not only can I not believe it’s December but that 2014 is almost over. I have just a few more gifts to wrap as well as decorate and put up the tree. Most stores last week had their Black Friday offerings early so I was able to grab a few items from Madewell last Monday.

~ Gemscape Layering Necklace ~

I am really into wearing layering necklaces right now. And if those necklaces are already layered for me, it’s even better. I like the rock and fringe mix of the Gemscape Layering Necklace. There are 3 jump rings to adjust the length as needed. 

~ Ensign Necklace ~

I would love to get the Ensign Necklace engraved with my initials. For now the plain flat surface will work, especially when layered with the Gemscape Necklace. This is one length, with no additional jump rings for adjusting.

~ Curvature Cuff Bracelet ~

I love the look of the Curvature Cuff Bracelet and spent about 15 minutes trying to find another bracelet that would be the best match with it. I settled on the Studded Rail Cuff Bracelet.

~ Triangle Ponytail Clip ~

I find it difficult to find cute clips or ponytail holders that I like. If I am going to be lazy and put my hair up I want to look cute doing it. These ponytail clips are perfect and so far, seem to hold all my hair without issue. I think there might be some issue if you have thinner hair, at least with the Triangle Ponytail Clip

I love these pieces as well.

In-Store, there was 25% off jewelry and the Early Black Friday promo of 25% off was stacked on top of it.
