A lady today at Starbucks stopped me and just said ‘Festive!’ If this was later than 9 am, I would have said something like ‘Thank you! Merry Christmas!’ But instead what came out of my mouth was ‘festive!’ Right back at her. Just like a weird robot, I echoed her. She did what any normal human would do and walked away quickly, trying to forget what happened. I then realized that I am dressed like a human version of Christmas day. My subconscious love for Christmas is obviously coming out a bit early. But I don’t mind one bit. Festive it is. I will happily match my Starbucks cup to my scarf, lips and boots. Is it too much? You’re damn right it is. Am I going to stop? Never.

  1. Where is that original scarf from? I love the brightness of that one that the J. Crew one doesn’t have.

  3. This is the kind of festive I can do! I don’t celebrate Christmas so I try to avoid overtly Christmas-y dressing, but I like dressing for the season! All the red is just fine with me!


  4. You are so funny. We’ve all had those awkward moments before the caffeine hits us. The outfit is very cute, festive and looks cozy too.

  5. I love all of the red accessories! 🙂 I like how wearing red around Christmas is instantly a festive outfit, yet you can still wear it year-round as well so red accessories are always a good investment! 🙂

  6. This look is super cute and festive and it is also making me a wee bit jealous. Our Christmas day forecast is looking more like a summer day in Louisiana. All I want for Christmas is to wear a cozy sweater and scarf and not suffocate.

  7. @kendilea:disqus What size did you get in the oversized sweater? I usually order mediums because i like the oversized look, but wanted to know your thoughts on this one!
