2 Ways - Business Casual in Holiday Colors

by - Monday, November 09, 2015

I can't believe that holidays are just around the corner. As soon as pumpkin spice offerings hit stores, it was only a matter of time before Thanksgiving and Christmas-related merchandise followed. I've always claimed to be Scrooge-like during the holiday season, so what prompted me to consciously wear olive green, red, and plaid multiple times over the last couple weeks? Like the real Scrooge, perhaps there is hope for me after all.

  1. I love the look! It's very fall. Did you buy the regular size or petite? I'm looking to get the skirt myself.

    1. Hey! I'm wearing sz 00 regular in the green skirt. It fits TTS for J.Crew. Hope that helps!

  2. Hi Cee,
    What size did you get the turtleneck in?

    1. Hey! I'm wearing sz XXS in the turtleneck. It runs big, so I recommend sizing down. It's still slouchy enough without being sloppy.

    2. Thanks! I was trying to choose between XS and S. Think I'll go with XS since I want it kind of roomy but not too big. You look great in it!


I'd love to hear from you. Constructive criticisms welcome!
