A Blue Christmas

10 days till Christmas people, count ’em! As I’m sure most of us are, I’ve been busy planning for the holiday season, so I haven’t been able to sit down and get to posting until now. More holiday updates to come next week!

CallieCraigWAS111617-35Between the shopping, wrapping, tree-decorating and all things holiday, I’ve been trying my best to step up my daily style game. More layers are meaning more reasons to look good. Every year, I try to find that one holiday sweater that will perfectly tie me over from Thanksgiving to Christmas and then into New Years. Some years it’s more traditional, others it’s more of the “ugly sweater” variety, but this year it’s pretty simple.

Upon outlet shopping this baby blue sweater at J.Crew was begging to come home with me. I feel like this kind of powdery tone is usually better suited on blondes and never seemed to work for me. With my darker hair this time around, I felt like the color would pop.

I’m loving the combination with my camel coat and any pair of jeans. This icy blue seater would work perfectly with just about everything. I’m a huge fans of keeping it in the blue family with navy dress pants, or if you’re more adventuresome, trying it with white jeans.


Rotating your new favorite sweater into your winter wardrobe is a great way to get excited for the holidays. Here’s to my last weekend in Chicago before heading to the East Coast next week. I’m really looking forward to the holidays, aren’t we all?
