sweater + jacket (similar): h&m, wool skirt: joie, sneakers: converse, lips: chanel

Red and green, red, white, and blue, and orange and black are three color combinations I don't wear simply because of their respective holiday connotations. But since I'm a badass and all, I decided to break the rules for this look. It's close enough to the holidays to let loooooose. Which apparently in my world means breaking my self-imposed sartorial guidelines.

This wool skirt (a great find at last year's Joie sample sale, but I don't think it made it into production) actually has slight lines of red in it, which you can't see in the photos. Unfortunately I had some technological difficulties with these photos, as they were showing up way lighter in photoshop than when uploaded on blogger. My attempts at remediation weren't completely successful, but I'm not lettin' it get to me. You know why? Cause today is the 50th anniversary episode of Doctor Who. Woooo to all my fellow Whovians.

  5. The green is so subtle that it doesn't look like you are intentionally holiday-themed. Speaking of themed, did you mean to match your outfit to your chocolate and coffee? If so, you pulled it off!

  24. Breaking the rules is the best! I know what you mean, I normally go away red and green as they remind me of Christmas.
