Dream Outfit & Dress for Less: Christmas Tree Farm

Here is my dream outfit for visiting a Christmas Tree Farm which I did on Friday [evidence in this post]!  When picking out your Christmas tree you want to be warm, comfortable and still look great (who knows, one of the boys who binds the trees may be a cutie ;) I found quite a few cuties when I was at Jones Family Farms, but that's beside the point)  So for these looks I went for some leggings, Christmas/Winter sweaters, an awesome coat and durable boots! And we can't forget gloves, hats and scarves, but it isn't that cold yet so I just did a hat!  I went a bit red crazy in the first look...but come on, it's Christmas!
Sweater: Stella McCartney $1075
Coat: Moschino $2855
Leggings: Current/Elliot $795
Boots: Rag & Bone $795
Hat: N.Peal Cashmere $67.35
TOTAL: $5587.35

And now here's a Dress for Less for good measure. I tried to do under $150, but I was bad and went over by $5 ;)
Sweater: Mossimo Supply Co via Target $24.99
Coat [there's a red version too]: Merona via Target $59.99
Leggings: H&M $14.95
Boots: Xhilaration via Target $49.99
Hat: Forever 21 $5.50
TOTAL: $155.42

  7. Ahhhh these make me giddy! I SO want to wear one of these outfits (or both of these outfits with a dramatic wardrobe change in the middle of my day) to da tree farm! As much as I dislike winter, I must admit I enjoy it for a couple of reasons: first of all, and most importantly, the FOOD, and secondly, all the warm, cosy knits. Love love love.

  23. I agree I really like that red coat but I also really like your dress for less outfits too.

  24. Whereas that Stella McCartney sweater is gorgeous it is not worth over $1,000. I think you did a wonderful job making a great look for less. I dig those H&M leggings. Might have to hunt those up!

  31. Love the outfits - those leggings!! i'm so getting the H&M version stat!

  32. that's so cool! I don't think that you must buy expensive clothes to look good in them. I only invest in good looking faux leather bags or real leather bags, and nice jewellry, and normally i try to buy good shoes, but for the rest - so what ;-) xxx Anita

  34. I saw the first sweater and immediately went to add it to my wish list ... and then saw the price tag. Haha! The Target one is a great alternative!
