To me the holiday season means family, friends, giving, and fabulous parties! And what do holiday parties mean? Festive fashion of course! This time of year usually calls for velvet, red, gold and sequins. However, sometimes I like to be a little more unexpected with my fashion choices in and around the holidays.
While those trends are always classic and beautiful, this year I opted for something a little more playful. Some of you might have seen me wear this flirty Monique Lhuillier cocktail dress for the Spanx fashion show earlier in the year. However, I thought the recent festivities called for me to bring it out of the closet again and throw on an edgy leather jacket to boot. Of course, I didn’t throw out tradition entirely, as I added a holiday touch with my red velvet slingbacks that I got in Amsterdam! I feel the pop of red and texture inspires feelings of customary holiday-attire but the primary color palette, polka dots and leather brings a fresh perspective to this time of year. All of this to say… don’t feel like you have to go hunting for the perfect red sparkly cocktail dress this season – maybe just add a touch of holiday to something you already own. Or, if you do find that perfect holiday outfit – go for it! But make sure it’s something you’ll want to wear more than once a year.
Well, all of this talk about holiday parties has me in the mood for some spiked cider! I’m going to enjoy the day and join in on the festivities. Have a great weekend dolls! xo
