What to Wear on Christmas This Year, Plus Online Shopping Shipping Deadlines + Sales!

Dec 19, 2017

Cableknit Sweater: c/o Everlane (comes in grey and green too!) This one is also similar–it’s just ribbed instead of cableknit, and it’s so pretty! Jeans: J.Brand Maria Jeans (but I just got this similar pair from Abercrombie on sale today for $39!!) Shoes: c/o Everlane–they’re called the “Day Heels” and they’re honestly the most comfortable heels you’ll ever wear! Go at least 1/2 size up. Come in so many colors! Coat: Ann Taylor (50% off today! But almost sold out, wah!) but they also have a similar coat on grey and blackNordstrom also has tons of camel coats right now at really good prices! I especially love this Topshop one with the faux fur detail on the collar! Earrings: Kendra Scott (old, but similar here!) Purse: Rebecca Minkoff (olive color is sold out but they have lot’s of others!) Scarf: J.Crew (sold out in this color, but I still love the remaining colors! I also just got this adorable scarf from Tuckernuck and I’m obsessed!)

Hi guys!

It’s a double-post day today because I just realized tonight marks the cut off for quite a few retailers to get items in time for Christmas Eve, so I’m publishing “Wednesday’s” post on Tuesday afternoon to help your last-ditch shopping effort! I suppose you could say it’s a two for one Tuesday special ?

Anyway, I’ve been wearing this uniform in one way or another quite a bit lately, and I expect them to be in frequent rotation until…probably…April? Haha! If you’re looking for a cute and casual outfit to wear for the holidays this year, you’ve still got time to get this one ?

First up, this Everlane cableknit sweater–it’s SO. WARM. It’s made of a super thick wool and cashmere blend that keeps you super toasty, and I love the beautiful knit pattern. It’s such a great sweater that can be dressed up or down for so many occasions. Shipping Reminder: tomorrow, 12/20 at 9AM PST is the cutoff for Everlane Christmas delivery! 

Second, my favorite Everlane heels. You remember the springy orangey-red leather version I have (I wore them in this post!)–well, this is my winter version! It’s highly likely I’ll be wearing them on Christmas Eve or Christmas Day this year, and well into 2018, too! I love the black velvet version as well.Shipping Reminder: tomorrow, 12/20 at 9AM PST is the cutoff for Everlane Christmas delivery! 

Third–can you ever have too many plaid scarves? They make the best gifts, and right now there are a bunch on sale! This exact color is sold out, but I really love the two other colors still in stock at J.Crew (and on MAJOR sale!) If you want to see three ways to wear your plaid scarf, head on over to this post! Shipping Reminder, TONIGHT is the ordering deadline for Christmas J.Crew delivery!

Speaking of shipping deadlines, here are a few others you might want to jump on in order to receive your goods by Christmas Eve! The good news is that some of them are having MAJOR sales (like, half off the whole site!)


  • Dec. 20: Last day for two-business-day shipping on Gift Cards and merchandise (order by noon ET).
  • Dec. 21: Last day for free Standard Shipping on Gift Cards and qualifying merchandise (order by noon ET).  Last day for next-business-day shipping (order by noon ET).
  • Dec. 22: Last day for $10 Saturday delivery on qualifying merchandise (order by noon ET).
  • Plus, you can always order online and pickup in store in a few hours!


Ok honestly J.Crew’s shipping is kind of confusing, yesterday they said last night was the deadline, now they’re saying tonight is the deadline for free shipping and delivery by Christmas Eve, but it also looks like you can pay $20 for one day delivery up through Friday. Regardless, you still have time AND right now, everything is 30% off!
