Wardrobe Diaries: Alternative Holiday Colours























With Christmas less than a week away, I'm sure most of you at some point have pondered over what wardrobe choices you'll be making for the upcoming festivities. While nothing says Christmas quite like a kitschy red reindeer sweater or body skimming party dress, sometimes it's nice to break from conventions and just do your own thing. This year, antique gold and purple is my colour of choice. It's a nice departure from your usual sparkly sequined uniform and yet festive enough to still be appropriate. This outfit is perfect for any holiday luncheon. The loose fit shirt and skirt will easily conceal that food baby you've been carefully nurturing since the start of the month. And a structured military inspired jacket thrown over will redirect any glares thrown your way after one too many drinks. After all, we all know that being smashed is well beneath any lady sporting a polished faux Chanel jacket.

Thank you to those of you who still continue to visit {camo meets couture} despite my recent negligence to the blogosphere. This month has just been a blur of nonstop events that blogging has taken a backseat. I'm looking forward to the new year and the change of pace that it will bring. So stay with me folks, {camo meets couture} will be back to it's usual schedule sooner or later.

Absolutely stunning! I love your alternative xmas colors! I've definitely been wearing a lot of golden hues but hadn't thought about purple! It's really a lovely color and does have something holiday-ish about it! :) And I love the loose-dressing idea too hehehe

Super cute outfit - finding an alternate colour scheme for the holidays is a good idea - helps break up the monotony of the red/green or black/gold.

Love this look! I think I have this same color silk blouse from J.Crew and love it because it's such a soft purple tone.
