Deck the halls with boughs of holly,
Fa la la la la, la la la la…
I can’t believe Christmas is almost here! It really is the most wonderful time of the year. To kick off the month of December and my celebration of the holiday, I am taking a girls’ trip to New York City this weekend. Four of my best friends and I will be celebrating Christmas early together because we all live in different cities. One of my friends is coming all the way from London!
We plan to be major tourists, seeking out all the highly holiday decorated places of NYC. The Big Apple has so many great places to see during the holidays, but number one on our list is checking out the Christmas tree at Rockefeller Center. It is definitely a scene worthy of a postcard. We may even go ice-skating while we are there, or we may just go drink some hot chocolate and watch from the sidelines. 🙂
While touring the city in all of its holiday glory, I have to have the perfect outfit for the occasion. After some searching I found one brand that had exactly what I was looking for! Crown & Ivy, which is exclusively sold at Belk, carries a women’s clothing line for all shapes and sizes. Their style is geared towards the modern, Southern woman. Since I am from the south, attended college in the south and was in a sorority at LSU in south Louisiana, Crown & Ivy is very appealing to me.
For the holidays Crown & Ivy came out with some pretty amazing Christmas sweaters as part of their Holiday Party Collection. They are cute yet sophisticated; NOT something you would wear to a tacky Christmas sweater party. I chose a sweater that says “Fa La La” because Deck the Halls is one of my favorite Christmas Carols. Since layering is key when dressing for cold weather, I will be wearing a green gingham shirt under my sweater. I want to not only look good, but also be comfortable; so I’ll also be wearing navy leggings while I am touring NYC. To finish my look I’ll sport a puffer vest with my ensemble, because it will be in the 50’s while I am there. Can you say BRRR?!?! This Southern girl does not do well in cold weather; luckily there is a Starbucks on every corner so I can always grab a coffee to keep me warm. 🙂
