It seems that each year, the Christmas season starts earlier and earlier, and I don’t mind it for a minute. Yesterday I went into the office to get a head start on some work and naturally, decided to treat myself to a little shopping afterwards. I was so excited to see all the stores already decked out in Holiday Décor – some were even playing Christmas music. Now I can’t get it out of my head, so I’ve been listening to the “Essential Christmas” iTunes playlist on repeat.
I also realized that there are only seven more Fridays until Christmas and I’m starting to stress about my holiday shopping! If you’re trying to get a jump start on shopping too, I’ll be starting a holiday gift guide series this week. I’m planning to post one category every week. If there’s someone you struggle with shopping for let me know and I can put together a guide for that personality type. For example – The boyfriend who has EVERYTHING. If anyone wants to put together that guide for ME that would be VERY helpful haha. 😊
Anyways, instead of bombarding you with sequins, velvet and sparkles I thought I’d ease into the holiday inspired styles with this casual sweater scarf combo. As I’ve mentioned before, I am a huge fan of anything with a bow – and the tie-sleeve sweater is the perfect way to incorporate bows into any holiday look. I love this one especially because there isn’t a ton of extra fabric at the ends of the sleeve. Some of the other styles I have like this drag in my food when I eat, and it drives me crazy!
This scarf is actually from the men’s department at Nordstrom. I love checking out the men’s scarves because they usually incorporate more classic color palates that aren’t as crazy or bold as some of the women’s styles. This one is from last season but I’ve linked several similar styles and other men’s scarves that I love below.
