Fashion Finds: Items I picked up this holiday season…
I hope everyone had a Merry Christmas and a great holiday! I really enjoyed Christmas in Portland; the weather was crisp (no rain), food was great, and spending time with family was much needed. I thought I would share with you some gifts I picked up this holiday season.
I am obsessed with everything that has to do with working-out, especially work-out gear; new shorts, or shoes give you that extra motivation to get out there and run 10 miles! This Christmas I received the cutest dark gray and yellow Nike Zoom Structure Triax+12 ESC. I usually stick to white running shoes, but these are too adorable to pass up. These Nike Zoom’sare great for outdoor running with StoneShield to help prevent bruising underfoot for hard pavement.
I have struggled to find any shoe that fits (size 5). I have been buying shoes that are too big and convincing myself that I can use shoe inserts. But I’ve noticed, that if they don’t fit and are not comfortable, I will never wear them! I tried these Michael Kors tan sandals on (size 4 1/2) and they were a perfect fit and the rubber soles on the bottom help with the super high heel. Although they are a bit of a summer shoe, this is my favorite color right now, and couldn’t leave without them. These are great for summer dresses, skirts, and skinny and wide legged jeans. Great sale buy at $64.
I went to the after Christmas sale at Urban Outfitters and found this great party dress on sale for $15. I tend to find myself gravitating to dresses that are on the shorter side because I wasn’t gifted in the height area. This dress also has a great to V-neck top,which helps accentuate anyone’s top half.
I also picked up a soft, comfy BDG sheer scoopneck tee. I know I have a million white T-shirts, but you can never have enough of them, plus it was on sale for only $2! This particular T-shirt is super soft and has that worn-in look, which I love.
I picked up the Victorian Lace Fullfoot Tights and the black Footless tights from Urban Outfitters. Thought these would be essential during this cold holiday season. I really love the footless black tights because they are super casual. I’ve been pairing footless tights with a long T-shirt, a boyfriend sweater, and cute flats, for a relaxed look.
I went on 80spurple.comand picked up four different sunglasses. I love this site because they feature designer and vintage sunglasses, giving you the choice between an investment or something fast and cheap. I picked up the classic wayfarer, 80’s ‘eva’, 80’s ‘nouveau’, and the premium aviator. Update your glass wear for the new year at 80’spurple.com!
These holiday finds are a perfect start to my move to San Francisco… Any fun gifts or great buys you would like to share?
