Burberry Holiday

One of the best gifts I have received in recent years were two Burberry quilted jackets from my mom. She got me a classic tan and a metallic silver during my freshman year at Georgetown. It was such a thoughtful gift and definitely one of the more luxurious ones! I’m a big fan of practical gifts… like when I asked my parents for a Cox Box– Google it– for my eighteenth birthday so I could have my own for crew practices…. however, there is something extra special about getting something so glamorous that I wouldn’t dream of buying myself. I still have and wear the jackets and always feel so special when I wear them. (Plus, because I live far away, it feels like a little hug from my mom every time I put one on!)
I think Burberry makes for an extra special, not-your-everyday gift! They have great options for men, women, and children. (If you have a little girl, how cute is this!!!)
A great idea is one of the Burberry scarves. I thought this option was perfect. It’s not quite the traditional plaid, but still has that Burberry check! It is so soft and I love how extra long it is. Talk about cozy. The scarf would also work as a gorgeous shawl if tied around your shoulders! 
I’ve always thought Ivanka Trump shoes were amazing, but these totally take the cake. Talk about perfect for the holidays.

I have a burberry quilted jacket that I love. There are always great deals on a few burberry things during the annual sale too and the things that I've scooped up I find myself wearing again and again! I have the ballet flats and a trench too that is perfect for the british weather here in London!

Ok, this is by far one of your best outfit posts Carly! Everything about it just works! Also, I love the fact that you asked for a cox box for your birthday; it is so much nicer to have your own and know that it's charged up and ready to go

This is gorgeous! They are such simple pieces and make such a statement. Love how you used a non-traditional Burberry colour scheme! Also you should use the second shot as a new headshot – it is very beautiful 🙂
Thanks for the holiday inspiration!

This look is still just as gorgeous and classic today–2 years later! I can’t believe it was really that long ago when you came out with this post. I had only been reading for about a year at that point.


I know this post is primarily about Burberry, but those red pumps are killer on you! Uber sexy. *Love* the last pic… I’m betting the cabbie didn’t mind waiting as you crossed the road! 🙂
