Sometimes a girl needs a look that lets her roll out of bed and out the door in less than half an hour, and that's especially true during the holiday season when a hectic schedule might shift into overdrive with shopping, parties, and entertaining. I wore this while running errands yesterday when it was unseasonably warm and thought to myself, Now this is "effortlessly put together." The black sweater dress and leggings were as comfy as my favourite flannel PJs, while the trench and tartan blanket scarf kept me cozy without letting me overheat. Berry lips, tassel loafers, and a luxe handbag finished the look with just a touch more polish.
Oh, and because 'tis the season, I also added a hint of sparkle via Swarovski, who very generously surprised me by sending along a couple of Miranda Kerr's holiday picks including this bracelet. I love how the bezel-set stones give this bracelet a modern yet timeless vibe, as well as the extra detachable clasp. My link bracelets and watches always have to be shortened so they don't fall off my narrow wrists, but I can wear this one right out of the box while someone with broader wrists can size up with the extra clasp. It's a great "one size fits most" gift idea for a diverse group of girlfriends and bridesmaids.
