The holidays are about indulging to some degree, right?! Too much food, too much wine, too many holiday parties, and buying too many things for yourself when you should be shopping for others!

Every year around this season, I like to treat myself to something impractical.  Usually its a ridiculous pair of shoes or perhaps an electronic, but this year I wanted my indulgence to be a trend that I have never tried before.  I have seen feathers popping up in almost every retailer….and for the most part, they have been at an outrageous price point that is out of my holiday budget….but this skirt from Express stopped in my tracks!

And since the feathers speak for themselves when it comes to the va-va-voom factor, I wanted to pair it with a basic…originally my thought was a basic silk white button up, but this boyfriend sweater was too cozy to resist! And then I threw on a great pair of black heels and a statement necklace for the win! Ta-da!

And to score an indulgence on a budget?! It must be a holiday miracle!
