For the get together, I threw on my go-to tartan dress (it's from Lands End's Canvas line-- seriously from 2011 or before! But it's PERFECT for Christmastime!).
Burberry scarf: here.
My multi-strand pearl necklace: here-- currently $26!
I am totally obsessed with this red J. Crew Factory coat.
It is currently $107, which is a huge steal. I must warn you, though, it runs laughably large! I usually wear a 6 in J. Crew coats, and this is a 2. LOL.
But, it is the WARMEST coat ever!
^^ my fave part-- the fur hood!
This pic makes me laugh: major RBF. haha
Then, my favorite attribute of the outfit: this vintage Burberry silk scarf.
This was given to my mom when my Aunt Marge passed away. It is purely gorgeous-- and so sentimental-- it means so much to carry on her fashion legacy. I was so excited to show our cousin Susie that I was wearing her mom's scarf with pride. Again, Burberry will never go out of style. It is timeless, classic, universal beauty! This one is from about 40 years ago, and it looks brand new!
These Frye boots are my go-to brown boot. I bought them during the 2013 half yearly Nordies sale, and the condition still remains excellent! I highly recommend purchasing a pair of Frye boots, as they will last for years and years.
God bless my hubs! He put on all the clothes I would take off for pics. He is a saint!

Admittedly, a lot of what I posted above is pretty expensive, but-- hear me out! These are items that are high quality and will become heirlooms. :)
Do you have any fashion heirlooms?
And... Happy New Year! How are you celebrating?
