look of the week 8

This look is a double feature because I couldn't decide what I liked more: a looser sweater and cleaner shorts (look one—how great is that red? and such an attractive complement to burgundy lips and nails) or a fitted turtleneck and statement sequins (look two—love the mix of pattern and texture! and that polish? kind of Grinch-y, in a good way!). Like jumpsuits, shorts are an unexpected and chic way to do holiday soirees—you'll stand out in a crowd of dresses and skirts. Just add tights (classic opaque or playful polka dots) if you don't want to bare your legs—so Euro. Which look would you go with? I included a few wreaths because it feels too late in the season for a full Christmas decorating feature, but if you're scrambling a little like me, you might still need to add a few touches! Wreaths are as iconic as the tree and a great way to give a small space some festive spirit. I'd love any of these in my apartment—clean and modern. Also, I'm not much of a baker, but I'm feeling motivated to buy a box of sugar cookie mix (sorry, no rolling pins in this kitchen..), frosting and sprinkles for a fun little decorating day this weekend. And I'm due for another batch of Chex mix. What treats have you been whipping up?
