Deciding what to where for family gatherings is always a fun exercise for me since my aunts & cousins are such a stylish bunch – The first 30 minutes or so of any get-together are spent going over each other’s outfits & discussing the pieces we’re wearing, recent shopping successes & taking pictures.

This Forever 21 sweater ended up being perfect, it wasn’t too thick so it was ideal for layering, and it went really well with my favorite pleated mini skirt. Plus – Polar bears for Christmas? Yes please! I felt like a Diet Coke commerical… :)

Are you enjoying the oxblood/bordeaux/burgundy trend this season? Have you tried any pieces in these hues for Winter or the holidays?
