Having the weekend after Christmas was so relaxing; I loved being able to stay in the holiday bubble, sleeping in and eating my body weight in cookies.

Christmas treated us to some incredibly warm weather, and while it was accompanied by more rain than I would have liked, I couldn't get over the idea that was nearly in summer clothes on December 24th.

Despite all the wonderful gifts I received, I did end up taking advantage of a couple sales - the day before Christmas half off sale at J.Crew made this fringe top impossible to resist, then I treated myself to one boxing day purchase, a scalloped hem blouse at Banana Republic.

  1. I had my eye on that fringe top too but it ended up being a little too boxy for me. It looks FAB on you! I'm glad you had a very relaxing and happy Christmas. Any exciting NYE or weekend plans?

  2. I've been going back and forth on this top. I love actually seeing it on someone since I was unsure of how it would fit. It looks so great on you! I might have to use one of my gift cards this weekend! ;)

  3. Love that top, it's so fun and fringy! (and woo! The earrings look good!)
    This weather is so strange. I'm not complaining, but it's so weird to not be freezing already

  4. What a great top (a little of bit of fringe always seems to add so much!).

  6. Ooo...I love this outfit! The fringe top is so cute and I love the shimmery accessories! I'm glad you had a good Christmas! I must have brought the warm weather with me from Cali. My parents actually put the air conditioning on. I was like "Nooo!" I came here for some winter! Haha...It was actually colder in California this week!

  7. I LOVE this fringed top on you - so stunning. Glad to hear you had a relaxing and wonderful Christmas! I also ate enough to add a second me lol. I definitely need to detox this week and avoid having too much on NYE!

  8. I've been hearing just amazing things about the holiday weather you had on the east coast this year - such a contrast from all of the snow last season, I can't believe I'm seeing you in bare legs at the end of December! It sounds like you had a wonderful holiday and, of course, who can resist a little after Christmas shopping? I did the same, although now I'm wishing I had picked up a fringed top I had my eye on, because this one looks so good on you! I don't know if you're planning to wear this outfit for New Year's Eve but it certainly would be fitting :)

  9. You're looking marvellous Lydia ! That XL ring is beautiful.
    I spoke to my brother who is in VA and they told me it was warm, I could not believe it either... if its warm up there, imagine how it was here... Christmas night was super hot.
    I spent it doing charity work, so no fancy look for me.

  10. Such a gorgeous and festive outfit. I love that shirt! Staying in the holiday bubble is always so nice and relaxing...pretty sure I'm still there :)
