Today I’m sharing more of my Tommy Hilfiger favorites because Tommy’s holiday pieces were just too good to pass up. This plaid pleated skirt will definitely be on constant rotation throughout my holiday party circuit (and beyond). I think it could definitely fly at the office on those of you who are a tad more petite than I am. I’m on the tall side (5’10”) which makes it a bit short on me for work, so I wore it casually instead with this amazing chunky cableknit turtleneck and olive parka. I plan on wearing it again later this week with the navy tie neck blouse that I paired with the navy and black tuxedo suit below.
I’ve been on the hunt for an olive parka for a long time, and this one was well worth the wait. It’s so cozy and was just the jacket I needed in the cold, rainy weather we’ve had in San Francisco recently. It’s definitely top of my packing list for when I brave even harsher weather in Wisconsin at Christmas time.
As you can probably guess, this navy tuxedo is easily the favorite workwear addition to my closet of late. With an ideal fit, the perfect navy/black combo, and just the right menswear touches, it’s getting a lot of use already. It’s the perfect year-round staple, and I’m thinking of snatching up the matching dress as well to complete the set. As I’ve mentioned many times before, there’s nothing better in terms of flexibility and bang for your buck than getting multiple pieces that go with the same suit jacket.
This silver watch is definitely a new favorite that hasn’t left my wrist since it emerged from the box. The perfect size—big but not too big—it’s just the right menswear finishing touch.
As a nod to the holiday season, I paired the suit with this faux fur topper. It was just the festive touch I needed to make the classic look feel seasonally appropriate. It’s amazing how an accessory or topper like this one can turn an otherwise season-free outfit into the perfect holiday look!

Speaking of the holidays, if you haven’t checked out the 2015 Holiday Memo yet, definitely flip through! It’s got some of my favorite holiday outfits, Christmas traditions and all of my best gift ideas. As you may have noticed, I also added a countdown to the top of the righthand sidebar here on Memorandum. Yeah, a little panick-inducing, no? It’s another attempt to force myself to finish up Christmas shopping before I have to spend all of my rent money in overnight shipping. I realized the reminder really gives me the necessary kick in the pants to polish off the final items on my gift list, and thought it might help some of you as well!
