What makes the holiday season so special? Sure, twinkling lights and peppermint-spiced everything help set the mood — but that special something in the ever-brisker air stems from quality time with loved ones.
This past weekend, San Francisco-based blogger Gal Meets Glam took that to heart, marking the start of the holiday season with a family trip to Lake Tahoe, Calif.
Outfitted in a cozy cross-brand ensemble perfect for cuddling on the couch with a warm mug of cider or braving the winter chill to take in the sights, Gal Meets Glam took the opportunity to relax in this idyllic winter setting before the hustle and bustle sets in.
Her wintry, romantic look included Gap's 1969 destructed skinny jeans topped with blush-colored layers — Old Navy's faux fur vest; Banana Republic's ruffle-front blouse; and Athleta's soft crossdye blanket wrap. Athleta's faux fur pom beanie and Banana Republic's Aiden D'Orsay flats top off this effortlessly cool outfit.
In addition to her own favorite holiday outfit, Gal Meets Glam teased readers with her must-buy presents for family and friends, which include Banana Republic's men's plaid vest, Gap's cashmere cardigan, Athleta's strength hoodie and Old Navy's patterned boot socks.
