Always a sucker for military-inspired details, this get-up seemed especially apt during the holiday season—especially because it gives your nearest and dearest the opportunity to make lots of Nutcracker jokes. Soooo many Nutcracker jokes.  And yet, I still can’t get enough.

I’ve been on the hunt for the perfect rose gold watch, and was thrilled to finally find this beauty at Macy’s, especially at such a great price point for a high quality, gorgeous watch.  If you’re still on the hunt for a perfect holiday gift (for men or women) a watch is a foolproof option.  It’s the perfect finishing touch to any look and since Citizen watches are entirely powered by light (natural and artificial!) it never needs a battery change.   Convenient and environmentally friendly?  Big wins all around.

    Hello. I recently discovered your blog and I am really enjoying it. I purchased this jacket hoping to duplicate the look, however, it doesn’t have fasteners of any kind. Did you have them sewn in? Thanks!
