Happy holidays everyone!  I welcome December with open arms, as it is where one can feel the energy of the season all around.  Even though we all go about our days with more caution, and at times stay in the comfort of our homes, the holidays are upon us.  For many that means starting to decorate, listening to holiday music, and finding those amazing gift ideas for our loved ones.  Here at our small boutique, SALT by Pepper in downtown Boise Idaho, you will find all of this and I am so excited for all the good things to arrive this month!

Even though many holiday parties are taking on a different form this year, you should still feel special and unique.  So maybe you have to forgo the cocktail dress, but adding a little sparkle to a beautiful cashmere sweater will make you feel the holiday spirit…even if it is just to relax at home.  And there is no better way to do this then to wear our Crystal Fringe rope style necklace from Marie Laure Chamorel.  The intricate design of sterling silver, crystal, and gold will have your zoom guests staring, and the best part is that it will be a hit at your next in person event as well!

 

The Forte Forte winter collection hits the seasonal mark again!  The color combination and textures are exactly what we need this holiday season.  You MUST try this silk plaid blouse.  The colors of orange, green, teal, and fuchsia compliment each other nicely.  Add the flutter neckline, three button neck closure, and the loose body for the overall relaxed yet elevated fashion look.

As always, denim never goes out of style.  So even if you find that you are spending more time at home lately, the time is nearing that you will want to wear jeans again around Boise.  So don’t miss out on the amazing fit of the Mid Rise jean by Nili Lotan.  She is one of our favorite designers, with classic fits and looks, and amazing quality.

 

With the cold days settling in for the season, you can never have to many sweaters.  And boy do we have sweaters!  Sweaters from CLOSED Official, Nili Lotan, IRO, Transit Par-Such, Forte Forte, Majestic Filatures, Pas De Calais, The Great, Trovata, and Raquel Allegra.  All with unique style and textures.  One of our favorites that just arrived is The Frond Montana Cardigan by The Great.  The Pine needle shimmer has a slightly shorter and super boxy button up v-neck fit. It has beautiful open knit weave, and the textured frond pattern adds depth to this fuzzy, subtly metallic piece.  So make sure to add this to the items you want to wear while you snuggle up by the fire with season.

Now just because formal events are cancelled for the season, does not mean that you shouldn’t toss on a dress every once in awhile for the extra feminine touch.  Raquel Allegra gives us a classic fit mid length dress in a beautiful purple tie dye that pairs perfectly with a good ankle boot by Fiorentini & Baker and a cashmere scarf by Kaze.  Such an easy look, yet so contemporary!

And last, but hardly the least…boots!  Love love love Fiorentini & Baker boots.  Such an amazing quality.  I am excited for the newest delivery, especially the Crak boot in black.  The contrast between the black leather body of the boot and the brick red heel is unique.  The leather is very soft, and hugs your foot and ankle perfectly!  They ended up in my personal closet.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

I hope that fashion will continue to bring a smile to your face this holiday season like it has mine, and I hope you share our store with everyone!  Having your support during these past few months has made us very grateful.  I look forward to continuing to bring you all the newest styles from our favorite designers around the world.  Happy holidays from SALT by Pepper.
