Red Splash!

Lindsey_Borgman-0416HO HO HO…Merry Christmas! I love Christmas (minus the cold). Today’s look is another food appropriate one, so let’s get right into it.

Zelda & Imelda by Lindsey Borgman_-14I’m wearing a simple, super-comfortable and oh-so-beautiful (to me at least) over-sized sweater whose price was very kind to my wallet. And it’s a clean crisp white color…very season-appropriate. And it’s so warm. I love the cowl-neck, covers my chest, and no need for a scarf.

Zelda & Imelda by Lindsey Borgman_-15Of course it isn’t Christmas without some pop of red. I love this purse. Very portable and cute yet able to carry all of my essentials, and the turn-lock keeps it closed no matter how much I stuff it. I also love the quilted detail.

Lindsey_Borgman-0393This is one of my favorite rings, and that’s saying a lot because I have a TON of rings; a ton of them. And it is one of the first, if not the first ring I bought. The color scheme is great too because it can easily be paired with numerous outfits.

Lindsey_Borgman-0392Another great buy is this long necklace. It is great and one of my go-to pieces to spice up otherwise plain tops. And it matches almost perfectly with my coat but I promise I did not buy it as a set 🙂

Lindsey_Borgman-0389On to the pants. I love skinny jeans (or pants in general) for numerous reasons: it makes me look longer aka taller; it looks more dressed up and put together than wearing regular jeans aka takes the outfit up and notch; and it goes better with different kinds of shoes; they look great with heels, flats, sneakers, and can easily fit into boots unlike regular and boot-cut jeans.

Zelda & Imelda by Lindsey Borgman_-12I can’t emphasize enough the importance of having a pair of black heels. It’s a life-saver especially for height-challenged ladies.

Zelda & Imelda by Lindsey Borgman_-13Coats are a little expensive but necessary in winter. A good coat will last 4- 5 years, so very worth the investment. I don’t have a lot of coats so I have them in basic/muted colors so I can get a lot of use out of them. Pink coats are nice but not as practical as a black coat so choose wisely.

Zelda & Imelda by Lindsey Borgman_-11Christmas season is here, and I know a few of my favorite shops will be having sales. I’m not promising anything but in the past this is what I’ve noticed from my favorite shops:
