This week I’ve started to become very excited about Christmas. I love Christmas songs (especially those with a happy tune), Christmas movies (I always watch at least these three: “It’s a Wonderful Life”, “Elf”, and “A Christmas Carol”),  Christmas cookies as well as panettone (with a a glass of cold milk, of course), and the excitement we feel everywhere the closer we get to Christmas Eve.

As I mentioned in a previous post, bright red is my favorite color for the holiday season. Although I like to incorporate bright-colored pieces and accessories into my outfits, a head-to-toe red monochrome would be a little too much for me. So I ‘ve opted for a darker shade and created an all-burgundy look with this poncho, my first ever. This is my way of welcoming the “most wonderful time of the year!”

Thank you very much for stopping by and for always leaving such nice comments!

Have a happy weekend!
