Hi everyone!

Ah, December -- the Friday of the months. Basically everything I choose to wear during this time of the year screams "winter wanderlust" through a comprehensive combination of softer-than-soft sweaters, anything that catches light and a range of accessories which include Starbucks cups, red lips and MADE in the deep south jewels (which gives any look a huge holiday revamp!)

Today's look incorporates the effortless whimsy of holiday dressing mixed with a dash of inspiration from Johnny Cash (Classic Christmas, anyone?). Investing in wardrobe staples like these black wide-leg trousers is key for creating a variety of different looks -- this pair in particular have saved me during events like interviews, casual looks like this one and even for a night out! The wonderful thing about investment pieces is that they are classic, reliable and timeless. I'm sold!
