Since it’s my birthday, I’m going to indulge in an outfit of the day post! I treated myself to a fun, holiday cookie baking class at our local Sur La Table store. Before going, I learned that there would be a New York Times reporter and photographer there doing an article on holiday baking classes. So, naturally, I wanted to look nice (but not too dressed since I would be one with lots of flour and butter), be comfortable, and not like I tried too hard (easy, right?). My husband laughed when I walked out of the house in a vegan leather dress to go bake, but this C&C California dress was the perfect mix of comfort and chic!

Sweater dress: c/o C&C California. Leggings: Banana Republic (similar here), Lace Tank: c/o Yummie Tummie, Shoes: Lanvin, Bag: Celine Phantom, Watch: c/o Caravelle by Bulova, Bracelet: Henri Bendel.

Toasting to the end of class with an espresso.

By the way, I was interviewed and photographed for the NY Times article! It will run in next Sunday’s Metropolitan section of the NYT!
