Classic Christmas outfits are my favorite. When it comes to a busy holiday season I always feel that is best to make it simple! Certainly there is nothing easier than to wear an outfit that you have worn before, and that you know will be comfortable!
My favorites classic Christmas outfits always include the color green.
Green is a color that represents spring, growth and of course Christmas. Nicole Miller did an exemplary job of making the perfect timeless sheath. All over ruching added texture, so the simple pine green was all I needed.
My metallic tinsel shoes are an older LVIS find and always heralds holiday joy! That they were under ten dollars helps! The dress was under $10.00 also !
Can we say Holiday Bargain!
My statement rings are both older. One is from KCSignatures, and the other from a trip to Mexico. Certainly, Elle likes her baubles! Remember my furry chair ? it is still a favorite and especially cozy in the winter with the fireplace lit and glowing !
This happy lady got a new emerald necklace for Christmas from hubby. That means of course that I shopped for it, since I am a good shopper and that he bought it for me and wrapped it up!
Below a photo of it with the floral vintage bag, a gift from a friend. I wore this bag with this outfit and the color combination was just right.
I like the checkerboard bench as a backdrop. It sits on the second floor mezzanine in my East Hampton house, and I am happy my daughter wants it one day for her house! The red and cream background is cheerful and folkloric.

You remember this celery hued faux fur!
The house was uncharacteristically quiet. My entire family was in Anquilla soaking up the sun and each other’s company ! I was a bit sad that I could not join them, but mostly I was happy for them and their opportunity to be all together in such a special place. Facetime provided a great glimpse into the fun that they had! Therefore I felt in the loop and was grateful !
The Hampton’s was quiet and festive that week. The houses were lit up beautifully and the weather was lovely. I even woke up to snow at 5:00 AM! However, when I woke later for the day , it was gone. Still, the sight of the light dusting on the trees and tennis court was a splendid one that I won’t forget.
Hubby and I spent the afternoon at Barron’s Cove, a favorite Inn in Sag harbor. We sat next to a roaring fireplace and enjoyed sliders, prosecco and later, fresh-baked cookies!. The setting is special there, facing the wharf and the clear turquoise water.
I am all truly grateful for this blissful retreat. Photo one on the left is a close up of the dress and pretty gold earrings.
It is surprisingly green in the Hampton’s this year!
