Green for Christmas

I love red and sparkles so much, sometimes I forget about wearing green during the holidays.  So when I saw this choker top at Express, I knew it would be perfect back to my favorite black faux fur vest and studded booties.  And not only does this look work perfectly for the holidays, it will work well beyond the month of December too.

Can you guys believe tomorrow is Christmas Eve?  I can hardly wrap my head around it.  Thank you so much for stopping by and for all of your support this year.  I appreciate you all so much.  Wishing you and your loved ones a cozy, safe, and wonderful Christmas celebration.

And Happy Friday!

Leopard Coat

One of my favorite things to wear this time of year, is a cozy leopard coat.  Throwing one on is the perfect way to be stylishly warm, and a great option to wear over your cute outfits to and from you holiday parties this season!

Sequin Bomber

Give me all the sequins!  Now that it’s officially less than one week until Christmas, you can pretty much guarantee that I’ll be wearing sequins (or velvet) in one form or another from here on out.  And what could be better than a sequin bomber?  It’s the perfect way to add a little holiday glam to an otherwise casual look.

Shades of Burgundy

I typically tend to gravitate towards red during the holiday season.  But another great color option (that is often forgotten in place of its brighter counterpart this time of year), is burgundy.  And I am loving the soft combo of this taupe crushed velvet dress back to burgundy accessories and a dark lip.  And would you believe this dress is on sale for less than $30?  It would be perfect for a Christmas or NYE party!

Merry Merry

Merry Christmas Eve, sweet friends.  I just wanted to take a minute away from the hustle and bustle of all of the craziness and wish you and your families a very Merry Christmas.

I have also been thinking a lot this Christmas season, that while it truly is the most wonderful time of the year for many, for equally as many, it can truly be one of the toughest times of the year.  So I would challenge you all that as you are out and about running last-minute errands today, to follow through on those little acts of kindness that tug at our heart-strings but are so easy ignore the busier we are.

If you think something nice about a stranger you see, tell them.  Open or hold a door for someone.  Don’t be impatient with the sales clerk checking you out.  Smile and say “hello” or “Merry Christmas”  to people you pass.  Buy a drink for someone at Starbucks.  Help a little old lady with her groceries.  Tell your family and friends how much you love and appreciate them. No matter how big or how small, YOU have the ability to really make a difference for someone who is hurting this holiday season and be a light for all to see the true meaning of Christmas.  I love you all so much and am so grateful for all of your support this year.  Thank YOU so much for following along with me on this journey.

Red and Green

Okay, okay.  So as cliché as it might be this time of year, I do love a good old red and green combo.  Particularly when it is slightly more subtle than a traditional Christmas red and green.  So with that said, for today’s outfit, I substituted Kelly green with olive, which slightly tones down the combo.  And while it still feels festive, it isn’t over the top.  Can we also talk about this jacket for a minute?  Not only is it super soft and comfy, but it’s also under $30!  Amazing!

Holiday Glam

This gold skirt was one of my very favorite purchases last year, and it’s still one of my favorite things in my closet this year too.  It really is the perfect choice for a Christmas or NYE party, and you can style it so many different ways throughout the year too!  So if you’re still on the hunt for something fun and festive to wear this week or next, I’ve linked several similar options below.

The Ghosts of Christmas Past

Happy Friday, sweet friends!  Sorry to have been a little absent on the blog this week.  I was traveling for some big work meetings and a snow storm at the beginning of the week made it tough to get any new photos!

But with that said, the falling snow reminded me that not only are the Holidays just around the corner, BUT  I need to start planning my Holiday outfits.  So today, I wanted to take a little trip down memory lane and share some of my favorite looks from the Holiday season last year!  And even better?  A lot of these items have been restocked, so happy shopping and Holiday outfit planning!
