Cozy & Festive

December is here and so are two of my favorite things: being festive & being cozy. Often people think of festive as being super dolled up.. dresses, heels and jewels but you can also be festive and cozy with the right accessories! I love mixing and matching my favorite basics to create the perfect, holiday look. 

If you haven’t noticed yet, I love leopard. I think it is the perfect neutral.. YES, neutral!! It pairs perfectly with so many other patterns or makes a statement on its own. This leopard cardigan is so cozy and perfect for any time of year. Add some red and green accessories and you’re perfect for any casual holiday party, baking cookies with your besties or catching your favorite Christmas movie with Babe. 

PS. HOW STINKING CUTE IS THIS STARBUCKS!? I’m obsessed with it! It has an outdoor fireplace! Um, hello.. HI, can I move in please?! It’s on the top of Lookout Mountain if you guys are interested in checking it out! It’s definitely my all time favorite.

Leopard Cardigan. I am obsessed with this cardigan. I sized up for a more oversized, cozy look. I’ve only had it a couple of weeks and already worn it at least 10 times! I’m that obsessed. It is perfect for traveling too. 

Faux Leather Leggings. These are my number 1 this time of year. I love my leggings but these add a touch of sass, without being uncomfortable. Let’s be honest, when it’s below 40 degrees you’re not too worried about what you look like, you want warmth! These keep you warm & looking hot. 😉 I also love this pair in burgundy & grey. 

White Tee. *On Sale, more colors here. Size up // I know this is a little more than I normally would spend on a tee (but it’s on sale now, lucky ducks!). BUT it’s seriously so soft, I wear it at least 3 times a week, probably more. The quality is the best so it will last years, and it’s a piece you can wear every season.

— These pieces above are some of my ALL time favorite basics. They can be used as the base for any outfit or stand alone for a chic, simple look. I added the accessories below to make it cozy & festive!
