NYDJ for the Holidays!

November 24, 2021

I love dressing for the holidays!  But I seldom have an invitation that requires an evening dress.  Most of my events are pretty casual: family meet ups, lunch with friends, the teacher holiday get-together.  So this season I decided to pick out pieces that would look fabulous for these types of events and then after the holidays, I could wear each piece again and again.

This long cozy sweater feels like part cardigan and part coat, so I think it could be defined as a coatigan!  Everlane is calling in a duster which makes sense too.  But whatever you want to call, you’re probably going to want it in your closet. It’s so soft and pretty and versatile too!
