Now that its December, I’m starting to get a little bit more into the Holiday spirit. I took these photos a couple of weeks ago when Chicago got hit with a decent amount of snow. It didn’t last for long but made for the prettiest winter backdrop. I love how this casual jacket has a bit of a festive feel with its hints of red it will be perfect for this time of year. While we typically have one or two more formal gatherings, most of my holiday affairs stay pretty casual, but regardless if I’m in jeans and a sweater or a LBD {as seen here}, I always like to come with a nice gift for the host. Below I’m sharing tons of ideas at every price point and taking the work out for you! And speaking of sweaters, mine is on sale at Talbots and has a similar look and feel to the Clu tops I often covet {especially this one} for a fraction of the price! Win, win.
