American Eagle Winter Style

After making a Christmas wishlist for my husband's reference, I began to look forward to the holiday season. I started dreaming of snowball fights (even though snow before January is a rarity in North Carolina), cuddling in front of the fire (we don't have a fireplace), and dipping toast into hot chocolate. Even though we have no plans to go out of town any time soon, I fantasized about a cabin in the mountains where we could hike through the woods all day and watch Back to the Future all night.

And so, even though there's a lot going on between now and then (including Thanksgiving and my brother-in-law's wedding), I'm longing for the Christmas season. Fashion-wise, Christmas to me means broken-in jeans, plaid shirts, cozy sweaters and warm slippers. Comfortable clothes amenable to spending time with nieces and nephews, helping in the kitchen, and picking out a Christmas tree.

Which is why I'm tempted by American Eagle right now. I basically want one of everything in my size (except their graphic tees -- I don't want any of those). Several of these items, the epitome of my perfect holiday style, made my Christmas wishlist:

1. AE Shawl Collar Thermal, $24.50, link
2. AE Plaid Double Weave Shirt, $24.95, link
3. AE Fairisle Scoop Sweater, $49.50, link
4. AE Scoop Sweater, on sale $29.95, link
5. AE Chunky Knit Cowl Neck Sweater, $49.50, link
6. AE Warm Peacoat, on sale $99.95, link
7. AE Skinny Cord, $39.50, link
8. Favorite Boyfriend Jean, $29.50, link
9. Aerie Cable Slipper Sock, $29.50, link
10. AE Fairisle Mittens, $24.50, link
11. AE Fairisle Hat, $24,50, link

What do you think? Are you longing for Christmas already, just like me? What do you love to wear during the holidays?

Oh boy! You are getting me excited to snuggle up in a sweater. The weather here has been unusually warm, but winter is right around the corner.

Fun finds! I especially like 1,5,7. I don't own any cords I like and I think I should...

I am SO longing for Christmas!!!

Last year I wore Uggs so this year I'm going to make sure I pay attention to my wardrobe!! Right now, your AE picks sums it up for me.. I really want a pair of cords (7) and that sweater (3) underneath a checkered shirt (2). It would be so cozy and perfect for the cold!!

Ooh, I'm loving #2 and #5! My husband makes me do a wishlist on, so I'm clicking on the add to registry button as we speak! Thanks for sharing--I never think to look at American Eagle!
