This Was a Gift - Creative Closet

Most Christmas or birthday presents I receive don't consist of clothes. Not that I don't like clothing. I love it. But it took me a long time to wear anything but the "athletic" look of sweats, t-shirts, and hoodies unless I was getting all dressed up for something special, such as a wedding or party. I started dressing up for work when I started my new job last summer, and it's completely changed the way I look at fashion. It's been fun to pick a new outfit every day and see how many ways you can style a piece. My husband says he doesn't dare pick out clothes for me (men, geez, haha), and most other people give me practical things for Christmas, which is great. I absolutely love receiving items I can use and not have to buy for myself. Which is why, when my mom gave me this adorable coat two winters ago because I needed a heavy coat, I fell in love with it. Cute clothing (at that time that I could use when I dressed up!) and practical gift? Yes please!
