I’m spending Christmas and New Year’s in Romania, eating lots of my grandma’s delicious food and catching up on some reading for pleasure. For Christmas Day yesterday, I decided to dress up wearing a skirt I stole from my grandmother’s closet a while ago and my new bolero from my Romanian Santa. Clearly, this Romanian Santa has a good sense of style. This little shrug is going to gets lots of rotation in my closet.
I love the juxtaposition of slightly delicate and dainty pieces of clothing like this crochet bolero or a full floral skirt worn with a pair of sturdy and somewhat rugged boots. In general, I’m really finding myself increasingly drawn to outfits that are made of unexpected pairings and juxtaposed aesthetic sensibilities; tough and delicate, formal and casual, modern and vintage… and so on. I anticipate that this kind of approach to dressing will increasingly characterize my style in the coming year.
Whatever you’re doing (or are wearing) today, I hope you’re having a lovely Holiday Season with your family and friends! La mulți ani! S.
