Merry in Miami

Guess what, world? It was actually cold in Miami yesterday! Not cool, not breezy; cold! Using Miami standards, of course. Hopefully winter  fall continues to grace us with its presence on Christmas.

There's something regal (not to mention Christmasy) about olive green and red together. To add to the regality of it all and to dress up the casual look of the jacket, I added this chunky jewel necklace that my mom bought back in '05. I was pleasantly surprised to discover that these "Refined Dining Earrings" from Modcloth go perfectly with the necklace. Didn't plan it, just picked them up, put them on, and felt proud at how quickly I made the right choice. Go me.

  1. What a lovely outfit :) You look so pretty and I love that many of these things you are wearing are not brand new. I find it refreshing when bloggers wear things they've had for a while instead of all new, all the time. It gets boring...ya know? ;)

    I also really like your hair like that! You look good in a ponytail.

    PS. Merry Christmas & Happy Holidays!

    1. Aww, thank you so much for your sweet words! I try to keep my clothes for as long as I can. It's difficult for me to part with pieces that I love, especially if I know they'll be fashionable again eventually. This outfit is definitely a testament to that.
