The Christmas Tree Lot
posted on December 14, 2015 | by Amanda Holstein
As I mentioned in this Instagram post, I’ve never owned my own Christmas tree. I’ll wait a moment for you to pick your jaws up off the ground. Ok, ready?
Trust me, I’ve always wanted one. In fact, I used to beg my parents for a “Hanukkah Bush” growing up so I could join in on the decorating fun. Unfortunately, that was a no go. But it turns out, once you’re an adult, you can do whatever you want. Crazy, right? So I visited one of the many adorable Christmas Tree lots sprinkled throughout San Francisco and bought myself a beauty.
Although we never truly get real winter here in San Francisco (trust me, I’m not mad about it), there are certainly cooler days that call for warm layers. Since I can ditch the puffer coat now that I’m back in California, I’ve been relying on this long cardigan as my sort of faux outerwear. I layered it over one of my many Rails shirts — they are literally the softest button-downs ever and they fall just right (although I recommend a size up for an oversized look). I couldn’t physically do a Christmas activity without a plaid scarf, so of course that came a long too. Take a look at the full outfit below and stay tuned to see my tree tomorrow!
