Christmas Capsule Wardrobe Updates

Cream and Red Christmas SweaterAs much as I love neutral clothing, once December approaches I’m ready to inject a bit of festive fun into my wardrobe! This year I’ve decided to swap out a few pieces from my fall capsule wardrobe for some holiday specific pieces I’ll wear throughout the Christmas season. The pieces I’m trading them with will go into storage with my summer wardrobe pieces for now. I have four items I’m including here in this post, and one that I’m adding later which I’ll discuss further. I’m excited to start wearing all of these fun items and to share them with you!

Bring on the sparkle, velvet, and fairisle because it’s the holiday season!
