My Style: Parka & Plaid

Remember when my vehicle got broken into a few weeks ago? Well, without rehashing the ugly details, here's a little story. My green parka and plaid Zara scarf were two of the items stolen. Mind you, these two pieces have been my cold-weather staples for the last two years. And after I had time to get my head on straight, I was bound and determined to find replacements. Behold, the fruits of my online shopping labor. Thank you, American Eagle (and Aerie) for coming through on both accounts! The moral of the story - nothing comes between a girl and her closet. Where there's a will, there's a way, dang it.

Outfit: Parka, AMERICAN EAGLE | Jeans, gifted KOHL'S | Scarf, AERIE (only $22!) | Heels, J. CREW
Earrings, gifted LISI LERCH | Sunglasses, gifted D&G via SUNGLASSES SHOP

Today is the final installment of our Holiday Happenings series. I really hope you all have enjoyed seeing our different looks each week. Today is all about holiday parties! I love the different routes that we all took and how each look is so festive. We teamed up with Amelia Rose jewelry today to complete our party frocks, and I think it was a perfect fit. I opted for the clear Royal Earrings and have already worn them a ton! Browse the Royal Collection here!

I know tulle and plaid are done a lot during the holidays, but I've never paired these two and couldn't resist recreating this look for today's post! Make sure to pop over to the other ladies' blogs and get a closer look at their party outfits!

Outfit: Blouse, OLD NAVY | Skirt (short version), gifted LAUREN CONRAD for KOHL'S
Fur infinity scarf, TARGET (similar) | Necklace, TARGET

Here's a little recap of my three looks:
