One of the long-running Christmas traditions here in Lexington is attending the local ballet production of "The Nutcracker". Such an event calls for the perfect outfit. We love to theme out our looks, especially when it comes to the holidays. We started off our festive ensemble with the perfect skirt for the occasion. This Olympia Le Tan number is embroidered with the show's famous toy soldiers, all dressed in spirited Christmas colors. Keeping our palette locally focused is a Majestic Filatures Kentucky blue turtleneck sweater. Adding a little big blue magic to any outfit is always a good idea. With the winter chill in mind comes a pair of basic black tights from J.Crew and some edgy-chic Isabel Marant booties. Our clutch is quite literally like a gift that keeps on giving. The slim gift box clutch by Kate Spade is a Christmas present all on its own. No holiday look would be complete without a little red and this NARS velvet lipstick pencil is the perfect pop of color to round out our jovial look. In this outfit you can go ice skating in Triangle Park, check out the beloved downtown tree all lit up, and of course make a Nutcracker Night of it.
