What I wore for Christmas Day

We had a lovely Christmas. I wore this black and white outfit. Not Christmas colors, but I thought it looked nice anyway. The jacket has silver threads in it, so it had a festive look.
Jacket: Chico's
Blouse: CJ Banks
Jeans: FDJ
Shoes: Naot
Monogram Pendant: Max&Chloe
This past week I received the monogram pendant I ordered from Max&Chloe. I have coveted one ever since I saw Blair of Atlantic-Pacific wearing one. I chose this silver pendant that I could wear on my round omega necklace.

Patti of Not Dead Yet Style posted about whether or not we stray from our style. I am still not sure I know what my style is, but I am beginning to think it is Classic with a Twist. I find myself attracted to very classic styles like what I have on in this post. But I also like bright colors, funky patterns, black leather jackets, and biker boots.

Katy at ModlyChic asked if our style icons are celebrities or bloggers. I've thought about it and I've decided that my style icons are all bloggers that I follow. There are so many who inspire me daily.

Megan of Megan Mae Daily is one of my favorite bloggers. While her style is uniquely Megan, I am inspired by her. She is such a kind person who recently gave me the Liebster blog award. To quote Megan Mae:

"Liebster means "dearest" in German, and this award is given to bloggers with fewer than 200 followers. The stipulations of the award are as follows:

1. Thank the giver and link back to the blogger who gave it to you. [ Thanks, Megan! ]
2. Reveal your 5 blogger picks and let them know by leaving a comment on their blog.
3. Copy and paste the award on your blog.
4. Hope that the people you have sent the award to will forward it to their favorite bloggers."
I nominate:

The Wilted Magnolia
The Frump Factor

If you weren't listed, it doesn't mean that I don't love your blog too. Most of my favorites have already been given this award or have more than 100 followers. 

Have you given thought to who inspires your style?


  1. Can you EVER go wrong with black and white? I think this was a great choice for Christmas day....classy and classic! Hugs! ~Serene

  2. Is the black and white polka dot your blouse or a scarf? I couldn't quite tell. I like the mix of the polka dot with the jacket print. Your initial pendant is beautiful!!

  3. I like this look for Christmas day...classic black and white works anytime! Classic with a twist is also a great description of me...we can be twisted sisters!!
    Your necklace is really pretty!

  4. Very classic and flattering look, Debi! And I love your new necklace too. I agree that you dress Classic with a Twist (like your cool animal print shoes, scarves, and unique necklaces). Thanks for mentioning my article : >

  5. I definitely think your style is classic with a twist. A great twist though! You're always mixing in amazing accessories, pattern and color. You've really got a great style.

    I too wore black and white on Christmas. I love your jacket, especially with the polka dots. Hope you had a great Christmas!

  6. Debbie, hope you had a good holiday! Your jacket is perfect for a casual Christmas and the necklace is beautiful! Seems to me this would be perfect for my Trending link up!
    Thanks for the award. I don;t think I'll ever have 200 followers. Frankly I'm surprised I have 60!

  7. Why thank you, Debbie! I appreciate it. And I love your Christmas outfit! The jacket is especially sharp. Happy New Year.

  8. Hi Debbie, i love your jacket and the necklace is pretty nice!

    The vintage ladies inspire me -

    I think i found my style as well, what do you think;)


    Wishing you the best of the best for the new year.

  10. What a great necklace! And I think your jacket is very festive - the silver threads make it very holiday-ish but you could easily wear it for most of the year.

    Lots of bloggers inspire me. I have learned so much about everything: fashion, homemaking, cooking, organizing. The blog world is a wonderful place to get ideas.

  11. debbie, congrats on this award. You deserve it as you are a great blog friend. I just wanted to say that I am now following Meagan that you mentioned in this post...she is great and I love her style. I ended up wearing black too with small colored flowers on my dress. My pink sweater was too hot. Great mix of patterns and your necklace is GORGEOUS. Dawn Suitcase Vignettes xo

  12. Thank you for the award, Debbi. Hope you had a good holiday.

  13. I didn't wear Christmas colors, either :)

  14. I love the pendant and jacket!

  15. Nice pattern combination.

    I can't really name a specific celebrity that inspires me but I do have celebrities that I always click on to see what they look like.

  16. I love your Christmas day look--the palette and the mixed patterns. Very flattering. Must investigate these monogram necklaces. The way you described your style is very similar to how I would describe mine. Several of the persons you mentioned as inspiring you...inspire me as well.

  17. Thank you for listing me Debbie! :) I've been so busy I haven't had time to do a lot online. Hopefully now that the holidays are over I can get back to sewing/blogging/knitting.


  18. Black and white is always on time, good choice...I greet...
