 All I want for Christmas is this red hat.

It's the most wonderful time of the year, dear Passionistas! Absolutely adore the holiday season and most of all, Christmas. Even though the days get grey and dreary, the Christmas spirit always puts me in a great mood. Only when I think of gift shopping I may sweat profusely! Crowded malls give me anxieties. Lucky for you, I am an excellent online shopper so I hope you've checked out my annual Holiday Gift Guide. Lots of items sold out really fast. 'Tis the season, right?

If you are like me and don't get along with the cold weather, I have great news for you. THIS faux fur down coat. I haven't bought any new heavy winter coats/parkas for a couple of years. In fact, the one I own I grabbed from my mom's closet. I didn't think I needed a new coat until I found this S13 Faux fur down coat. It's light as a feather, allows for easy movements and the shiny fabric makes it very fashionable. My life has been changed, now I can handle this thing called winter. Faux fur hood is my favorite part, it even goes around your neck, this way you won't leave make up marks on the coat itself. Ain't that somethin'?

My jeans are 721 High Rise Skinnies by Levi's and this Gap sweater is the comfiest (comes in other colors). Get on the band wagon with me and buy yourself a chenille velour sweater. Basically, it's life changing and I live in mine. Must have worn it more than once in one week. Fashion faux pas? Nahh. In the world of Style Your Passion, anything goes. If you love it, wear it. Own it. Repeatedly. Check out some of my favorites:

Ok. SO boots. These are my ultimate fave boots I have ever owned to date. I get so many compliments on them, I've lost track. They're under $200 but I think they are worth the investment. If you aren't into metallics (umm, who are you and what are you doing here? jk ;) These Shelly's London boots also come in black patent leather. I won't get mad if you'd get those instead. My bag is by Rebecca Minkoff and it sadly sold out, linked few other amazing metallic bags instead. 

Besides festive fashion, what I'm looking forward the most is my boyfriend's homecoming. Willy is coming to Chicago from Washington State this week and I'm really excited to celebrate our second Christmas. It's been long 6 weeks without him... We're not quite done Christmas shopping yet, because we want to do some last minute shopping together. Also, I can't wait for all the spiced wine and my sisters cheesecake that I am going to consume. No judgement please. Most importantly I'm thankful I get to spend Christmas with my closest family that lives here in the US and I'm really hoping you'll get the chance to do the same. Family is everything. And you are a part of my blog family. Joy and love to you all!

Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays to you and yours.

Live Passionately,

Love, Marlena
