Decorating with our Literature Editor


Come the day after Thanksgiving every year, I'm ready to decorate. Reality always seems to get in the way though – little things seem to come up and decorating always gets pushed back until the first week of December. Post-Thanksgiving exhaustion, sick family members, writing deadlines, and late shifts at work. Decorating always goes from a dreamt-up day of cheer to a few hours snatched here and there in the evenings. Thankfully though, the Charlie Brown Christmas album finally played and the tinsel came out this past Sunday and the last of my decorations went up. Here are some of my favorites.



















Sweater: J.Crew from December 2013 (similar here in "sandstone" and here)

Trousers: Massimo Dutti (similar here, here, and here)


Knit Santa Knit Reindeer Ornaments from The White Company, Assorted Anthropologie Ornaments from 2016* (Nutcracker Ballerina & Sheep), Disco Ball Ornament from Urban Outfitters circa 2000**, Assorted Family Decorations

*Favorites from 2017: Swan Ornament, Zodiac Ornaments, Budding Monogram Ornaments.

**Miniature Versions for 2017
