Christmas Dinner- Blazer Optional

I love Christmas! That's right I didn't use the politically correct term. In Jamaica where I live, we get two days off- the 25th and the 26th which is called Boxing Day. If any of those days falls on a Sunday then the holiday is transferred to Monday. I am not accustomed to getting a lot of gifts during Christmas but I am accustomed to eating way too much food. There are usually a lot of Christmas dinners and in truth they are not very formal but a girl can always dream. The outfit below is what I would wear to a nicer Christmas dinner.

Christmas Dinner Date

The J. Crew Schoolboy Blazer is currently on sale for $80 it comes in both tall and petite sizes. I have very wide shoulders with long arms and long legs (I don't look quite as freakish as it sounds) , but I have found J. Crew tall blazers to fit me very well so far. Hope you like the above ensemble and maybe you can say something about your own Christmas traditions.

Photo Floral

I loved J Crew's Cafe Capri in Photo Floral since it first came out and although it was in my previous post I still dont think I have done justice to the love I have for these pants. Of course if you live in a colder climate you will have to add a coat.

trial and error?

Dotted Options

Being tall and top heavy I have a naturally statuesque physique so I tend to shy away from tops that are colourful, flashy, voluminous, or unique in any way. I have a ward robe full of muted coloured V-neck tees and tanks. The J. Crew sequined polka dot blouse below is so far outside of my comfort zone and unlike anything that I would wear that I am surprised that I love it so much! Luckily for me I have launched a campaign against comfort zones this year with the aim of broadening my horizons and deepening my life experiences.

Checkered Mini

Hello All
I have to say I love the smell of Christmas in the air. I have the great fortune of living in a tropical country so the weather is pretty great all year round, which means I can wear this great Checkered Colorblock Mini from J. Crew which I have been eyeing for months. 

Those of you who live in colder countries can just add tights and/ or boots to make this outfit more temperature friendly.
