Early Christmas Presents: Part 1

Early Christmas Presents: Part 1Who doesn't love to treat themselves to a little shopping spree after a long, hard week? I know I do, and while I rarely have enough money to do it, it's still a lot of fun.
It's not even Halloween yet, but stores are already introducing their Christmas collections. This just has me super-excited for the holiday season--I can't wait to start playing Christmas songs and seeing the first snow. Today's post is about the new arrivals at Abercrombie & Fitch...check out later posts in days to come featuring American Eagle, Gilly Hicks and Hollister.

I love anything that's lined with sherpa--it's just so cozy-warm! A&F's Pamela jacket ($88) combines the typical logo zip-up hoodie with faux-sherpa to create a very cute layer for the upcoming cold months.
Plaid shirts aren't just for lumberjacks--they're a good contrasting layer under a bomber jacket or cardigan. The Natasha shirt ($58) is a great tunic style with a waist drawstring, plunging V-neck and ruffle trim that comes in 5 festive shades that look good yearlong.
Even though it's starting to get cooler in Colorado (though we've had some days close to 80 degrees lately, which is almost unheard of!), I still like wearing skirts. The Carley skirt ($58) has a classic floral pattern complemented by a giant ribbon tie around the waist. The colors and pattern don't scream summer either, which is great. I could see myself wearing it with a pair of white tights and some boots or ballet flats.
Boxer shorts and bedtime are a classic combination. What's even better--boxer shorts that are a perfect gift for the holidays! The Kali boxers ($28) feature either an adorable moose with Christmas lights wrapped around its antlers or a simple plaid pattern.
Lately, I've been seeing a lot of sweatshirts that are hoodless and zipperless. Instead, they have a high mock neck collar and buttons. This is a great update to the classic hoodie. Try the Victoria sweatshirt ($70).
Fair Isle is the perfect print for winter. The Taryn cardi ($58) has winter patterns and is great for layering.
What's winter without a great jacket? Take advantage of A&F's price break on their stylish belted puffer coat (Harley, now $150). It comes in 6 neutral shades so you can wear it over anything.
Of course, you always need a few basic layers to go under everything. But they can still be adorable--like the Kaylin tee ($30). Each color has its onw unique holiday-themed graphic, from a moose wearing a winter hat to an assortment of cold-weather drinks.
Start your holiday shopping now to get a head-start on all the great things in stores. And pick up a thing or two for yourself while you're at it :)
