merry day after christmas. I hope your holidays were the best to date. I also hope you do not have to do anything today, but lounge in your pajamas + drink cups upon cups of coffee. or that’s what I’ve planned for myself. and in my suitcase, I strategically packed the most perfect sleep shirt to express my morning after christmas needs.
may your day be filled with comfy clothes, caffeinated beverages, laughter, and family ♥
and just in case you were thinking, I must get one of those sleep shirts so I don’t have to speak first thing in the morning, maybe. here are is the one I’m wearing + a few other favorites from forever 21 ..
the poncho ties this whole ensemble together. literally. I’ve always wanted a poncho to rock. but I’m a tad on the shorter side [5’4″ on a good day]. so it was important that I found one that didn’t overwhelm my figure. insert: this wool blend faux leather trim poncho from eshakti. I love the asymmetrical hemlines covered in faux leather and the tie that accentuates shows I have a waist.
this poncho was custom-made with my exact measurements. typically when I say custom, I hear expensive. au contraire. it was really affordable. and they have so many great pieces available. I’ve included some of my favorites below. use the code “littlelessonsinabigcity” for 10% off your eShakti order, through 01/23/2015.
being from iowa, I know surviving winter is no easy task. it takes preparation; both mental + physical. I can’t really help with the mental preparation, since I’ve lived in “winter” states my entire life and I dread it every year. seriously. but on the upside, there is no christmas like a white christmas. and if you don’t have to leave the comfort of your couch, snow is beautiful.
it takes an army to get through winter. these items are essential. not mentioned: the ten thousand layers I wear underneath. or my beautiful wool socks, that were originally [J]’s, and reach my knees. it’s not always pretty, but that’s ok as long as you can feel your body parts.
