Happy New Year! I can’t believe it’s 2020! Well, actually I really can’t believe it because I’m writing this ahead of time and it’s still 2019 right now so hello from the past!
Last night I had White Elephant/Secret Santa with my friends who I have been doing it with since high school. Since I’m writing this before the party, I’m just going to assume we had a great time. I’ll have to get back to you tomorrow on what gift I ended up with.
Anyway, the outfit I’m sharing with you today is what I wore to White Elephant. How I came across this sweatshirt is my friend had suggested we do Ugly Christmas Sweaters for White Elephant, even though we are doing it after Christmas and on New Year’s Eve. I don’t think it ever caught on though as I never heard anyone mention it again. But, I was browsing Christmas sweaters and saw a few Harry Potter themed ones that looked adorable. Ones that lit up, ones that had all the important symbols on it, etc. Of course, every single one I liked was sold out in my size. I decided to check Etsy and I came across the Weasley Sweater, but in sweatshirt form – therefore less $. You can decide what colors you want – I went with the Gryffindor colors naturally – and whatever initial you want. Any Potter fan will know the significance of this sweater/sweatshirt!
I finished off the look with brown leggings (and brown UGGs, not pictured) and most importantly, my Alex and Ani Time Turner bangle! I got it as a Christmas gift and it is so pretty!
I think this sweatshirt was a much better choice than those more elaborate sweaters I had my eye on. Yeah, those were cute and really festive, but this sweatshirt can be worn all year round and it’s just more practical.
My Time Turner charm bangle keeps going in and out of stock, so I’ve rounded up a few other Harry Potter themed Alex & Ani bracelets for you.
And again, Happy New Year! Wishing you a fabulous year ahead!
