I’m counting down to Friday in a big way this week because the school I work at gets out for Winter Break that day, yahoo! Edwin and I are jumping on a plane on Friday afternoon for New York and I can’t even tell you how excited I am. I’ve always wanted to go to New York in December and I’m really looking forward to some time with Edwin! We’ve both been so busy that it’s a much needed trip together. Edwin was such a great sport last week when he hopped in this shoot. I was thinking about what to title this post and I thought ‘All I Want For Christmas Is You’ was appropriate because it’s so true! At this point, I really don’t want things for Christmas. Instead, all I want is time and experiences with my loved ones. Friday, you can’t come soon enough! P.S. be sure to follow along with our time in NYC on Instagram and Instagram Stories.
I wear my over the knee boots constantly this time of year. They are such a great investment if you want to go for a nicer pair like the Stuart Weitzman boots or you can shop handfuls of other similar styles for a fraction of the price. I rounded up some must-shop otk boots for you here:
This coat is my current favorite. It’s apparently the current favorite of a lot of J.Crew shoppers because it’s selling out fast! Thankfully it comes in multiple colors and I was able to find a bunch of similar styles for you too. I can’t wait to wear this coat while walking along 5th Avenue this weekend to take in all the gorgeous holiday windows and storefronts!
This is pretty much Edwin’s daily uniform. He lives in his Clarks Desert Boots! I got him this sweater for Christmas last year but I found a handful of similar versions that are available this year: one, two, three, four. Great khakis are hard to beat as well. These four pairs are perfect for your dad, brother, boyfriend, fiancé, and husband: one, two, three, four.
I can’t believe how quickly everything at J.Crew is selling out. It’s insane! My kisses shirt is included on the list of items that are flying off the shelves. I found four similar shirts for you to shop here though: one, two, three, four (they are all on sale!).
On Jillian: Coat (similar, similar) / Shirt (almost sold out – similar, similar) / Jeans / Boots (similar, similar) / Beanie (sold out – similar) / Lipstick
On Edwin: Sweater (old – similar, similar) / Button-Down / Pants / Shoes
