Christmas casual

Two more days to enter the holiday giveaway for your own piece of Greg Michaels jewelry! The giveaway is open to U.S. and international readers through this Tuesday, Dec. 23. All the details here in this post!

Also a quick note that SIA (Style Imitating Art) challenge is taking a break for the holidays. Salazar @ 14 Shades of Grey will be back with her SIA pick on January 5.

To start off this holiday week, I will highlight three festive outfits! First up is a casual outfit just right for looking put together while running last-minute holiday-themed errands (like I did), or even just for staying warm at home (also me). I was inspired by Corilynn’s recent “winter uniform” post, with her combo of leather jacket, green sweater, and plaid scarf. The basic foundation is the same as Corilynn’s outfit, but there are small differences:  my jacket is faux leather, my sweater is a green cardigan all buttoned up, and my scarf is an infinity scarf.

The festive backdrop for these photos is a local church in the neighborhood which has been recently restored. The bright red doors really highlight the lovely architectural details!

Also, the wind was definitely having a moment — and stirring up some outtakes! — while we were taking these photos. It was downright chilly!

I also donned my new Greg Michaels bracelet, to add a bit more sparkle to my casual outfit. You can see the bracelet peeking out of my left sleeve in the pics above, and below is a closeup.
