If you’ve been a reader for a while, you probably know by now what a crazy print mixing lover I am — it’s one of my favorite elements to play around with in my outfits. But texture mixing is a close second! There’s something about the combination of certain textures and colors and prints that just makes an outfit look complete, expensive, and effortlessly chic. This gorgeous boucle jacket from Nordstrom caught my eye in the store a few weeks ago and I had to bring it home with me. It’s one of those layering pieces that is timeless, will go with everything, and is easy to dress up or down. It would look amazing with a festive A-line skirt or black jumpsuit and glam shoes for the holidays, but I dressed it down here with an oversized flannel scarf for a more everyday casual holiday look. The combination of boucle and flannel (with that gorgeous fringe), especially while one is neutral and the other is bold, creates such a visually interesting outfit.

TopShop in Nordstrom also has a ton of good holiday pieces if your holiday parties are right around the corner! Click the images in the widget below to see all my favorites!

    I love this look on you girl! Do you still use a tripod for your outfit shoots? You are so good at it, I could use some pointers on how to get such great pictures from my tripod!

    Wait, is that a tank layered under a sweater/top in the same color? I LOVE that idea. Please excuse me while I go stand in front of my closet for 20 minutes seeing if I have 2 things I can combine like this.
