Christmas in January




I had the opportunity to celebrate Christmas once more in January!  I am so overjoyed that I was able to be a part of my good friend, Selam's, annual Habesha Christmas Potluck.  She is Ethiopian and Christian Ethiopians follow the Julian calendar which celebrate Christmas on January 7 instead of the 25th of December from the Gregorian calendar.  It was a congregation of great friends and family with music and incredible food!  There were traditional Ethiopian dishes such as injera and doro wat and everything tasted exceptional.  I filled my plate to the rim!

When I think of holidays, I definitely think of metallics. This gold and black skirt screams holidays to me!  It is festive and fun.  I kept it simple with the classic black turtleneck and black tights to keep warm.  It wasn't the warmest of temperatures this past Saturday, actually only 8 degrees, so I had to bundle up!  I was looking for a well structured black wool coat and I found this Tahari coat last winter.  It fits well and goes perfectly well with my office attire as well.  I always try to find pieces that I can transition from work to going out.  For a little added glamour, I wore my gold heels to pull it all together.  Its surprising how many outfits these actually go well with.  

Thanks for reading,

Andrea
