December came and past in a whirlwind of holiday events and excitement. Seriously, I have not a clue where the month went. I spent the majority of 2015 looking forward to our very own Christmas vacation to St. Thomas, so when December finally came around, I began counting down the seconds until we left. Enter one holiday party and one stomach flu four days prior to my trip and that was a major downer. I was able to rally after two days of torture and enjoy our family vacation–hence the skin color other than deathly pale this time of year.
After a quick, "Oh, we should check our flight to make sure everything is still on time," at 11:30 PM on Christmas Eve, everything quickly went awry, landing us in a Ford Transit at 1:30 AM to catch a flight from Dayton, OH to Atlanta, GA instead of our original departure city of Indianapolis. Thank God for a husband who was willing to stay up nearly 24-hours and drive my mom, sister and soon-to-be brother-in-law to Dayton to catch a flight to the Virgin Islands without issues.
Enjoying 83 degree weather from December 25th to January 3rd was a dream, but now it's back to reality and 30-ish degree weather. Ugh. Even though I feel like my tan is quickly fading away, this outfit definitely helped keep my comfortable, cozy and ready to take on the workday. A perfectly cozy outfit - and perfect timing - for the #indybloggersseries of the month which is #cozyinindiana.
This oversized Free People cable sweater from Elysian & Co is the perfect starting piece to curate an outfit around. Large, comfortable and forgiving enough to hide the overabundance of rum punch and fried food I'm holding onto from vacation. #notkidding Add a pair of leggings, black over the knee boots and some layered necklaces (fabulous and handmade also from Elsyian & Co) and Alex + Ani bracelets and I'm set for the day.
Now, if I could just become a true islander, I will be set. This sweater could work for cool tropical nights, right? That might be a stretch, but hey, I'll take it!
