The last time I had to figure out what to wear in a mid-70s degree December, I lived in Florida.  And I was 12, so it was really a matter of wearing the blue jumper or the yellow one (with matching platform tennis shoes, of course).

Since then, I would like to say my sartorial tastes have evolved (I think using the word “sartorial” proves that, right?), but I’ve also moved further north, and picking out Christmas-y clothes when it’s 75 degrees out is no small feat.

For this look, I took a few liberties with the typical red and green color palette, softening it with a mint-colored tee. Polka dots added a bit of warm weather flair, and the light-weight cotton in the scarf helped me look a little more seasonally appropriate, without actually adding weight or heat. A sparkly headband also created a more festive look while hiding my unwashed hair.  Men, don’t judge – you’d actually be quite surprised how infrequently we wash our hair.

1 - polka dots and mintHave you been wearing Christmas-y clothes yet?  I may love a theme a little more than the next person, but hopefully you’ve caught a little of the Christmas spirit.  How much is everyone loving the warm winter weather (sorry, Colorado). Welcome back to the work week – hope this Monday treats you well!
