Christmas Bike Ride in Charleston

Merry Christmas loves!

To everyone reading who celebrates Christmas, I hope you have a beautiful day full of family, friends, laughter, joy, and snow (if you’re lucky!)!

Edwin and I have had a wonderful few days in Los Angeles with his family. We had the merriest Christmas Eve last night. We hopped on an early morning flight today to Phoenix to spend the rest of the holiday with my family (read why we’re not spending the holiday in Jackson Hole this year here). We’re so lucky to be able to spend the holiday with both of our families!

The night before we left for California, we went on a long, leisurely Christmas bike ride in Charleston with my brother who was in town visiting us (he snapped the photo of Edwin & I). Charleston is truly magical at Christmas. Every house is adorned with beautiful wreaths and draped with garland, holly, and mistletoe.

I fell head over heels for this red plaid ruffle top (more sizes here) when I saw it hit the shelves at J.Crew. It’s a fun twist on plaid button-downs that I love so much. I also love these four classic and unexpected plaid tops from J.Crew: one, two, three, four. The red makes it extra special for Christmas but I fully plan on wearing it all winter long. Be sure to check back tomorrow to see my tips for wearing red after Christmas!

My cropped navy peacoat (more colors here) is perfect for bike rides because it hits at the bike seat so I never have to worry about it getting dirty like I do with my long coats. It’s been pretty consistently chilly in Charleston. So the coat layer is absolutely necessary. Especially in the evenings and at night. I love my cropped peacoat but I also found a few others I love as well:

I added a fur stole to this outfit because the cool wind on my face from bike riding can make me a tad bit cold this time of year. This fur stole is near and dear to my heart. It was Edwin’s aunt’s/godmother’s who he was incredibly close to. She sadly passed before I ever had the opportunity to meet her (but her sense of style lives on in this coffee table book!) so I was so touched when one of Edwin’s other aunts gave me her fur stole last Christmas. If you remember this outfit, then you know that I love fur stoles so I rounded up a few fabulous ones for you here (faux and real… many come in multiple colors so be sure to click through):

My earrings were an early Christmas present from my mom (also love these)… I cannot tell you how much I love the Goldbug earrings. They are surprising lightweight too so I can wear them all the time. They were a fun touch to this outfit. Especially because the final destination on our ride was out for drinks and dinner. P.S. you can get more scoop on the my boots here.
