Oh how time flies…I can’t believe Christmas is just a week away! Decorations are up, presents are wrapped, groceries have been bought + I am ready for a relaxing and festive week with family to lead into an exciting 2020.!
Whether you are keeping the holidays low key or going all out, this is one of my favorite times of year to reflect on everything that happened over the past year and think ahead to what will make the next year to come even better.
One of my favorite parts of the holiday season is the festive apparel…green and red will forever be my favorite holiday color scheme + every time I put it on I instantly feel holiday cheer!
It’s funny usually the holidays seem more magical and festive when you are a kid as opposed to being an adult but over the past few years, the holidays have always been magical for my boyfriend and I. We are super into decorating, venturing out to see local Christmas lights + shows, seeing Disneyland decorated for the holidays + watching every holiday cooking show Hulu has to offer haha :p
One of the parts I love most about the holidays is the time to be close to family and enjoy traditions. Something I learned over the years is that those moments occasionally change as you enter different stages of your life. The holidays with my family were nice but the holidays with my boyfriend are even more joyous and we create our own traditions that we can’t wait to pass down to our family one day…crazy to think but it’s what makes the holidays even more exciting!
Are you excited for the upcoming holidays? What are your Christmas traditions?
I hope ya’ll had a Happy Thanksgiving, Black Friday + Cyber Monday! I’ve been swamped getting my website fixed after it was down for two days, working on projects for clients and of course prepping more holiday content for the month ahead! From shooting new looks for NYE to Christmas outfits perfect for any occasion, my Holiday Style Guide is live and ready for you to find the ultimate holiday look! One of my go-to looks for the holiday however…anything red + green like I am wearing here!
I love the signature red + green look for the holiday season. These colors just make me feel merry + filled with cheer. One of my go-to pieces in every color? A signature tulle skirt! I love this tulle skirt so much that I bought it in every color it comes in so I can style it for various outfits + occasions. The red skirt is a must-have for the season because you can style it in so many ways like I did here with a wrap blouse or a bodysuit or a sweater etc.
I paired the look with one of my go-to Gucci belts. I love this belt so much I bought it in various colors to match with multiple looks year round, definitely worth the investment since you will get so much use out of it!
When I spotted these shoes from J Crew I knew I needed to have them. They sold out in the green color but they have them in different styles and I have found some similar styles at various retailers as well. They are the ultimate Christmas shoe if you ask me.
As for this bag, I have been eyeing it up for months and finally took the leap + bought it right before the holiday season because the red hue and gold hardware instantly made me think ‘Christmas’. You can’t go wrong with a chic Gucci bag in a forever classic color.
I hope ya’ll are as excited as me for Christmas! We have been in full on festive mode from a holiday trip to Disney (blog post coming soon), to wrapping presents, to decorating Gingerbread Cookies…and I can’t believe it’s just days away. I have been rocking my ugly Christmas sweaters, playing Christmas music non-stop and of course shooting some last minute holiday looks like this one. It’s easy to pull together with just a few easy pieces you may already have in your closet.
I picked up this Christmas graphic tee a few weeks ago + have been wearing it ever since. It’s easy to style with jeans, cozy leggings or even dress it up like I did here with a festive white skirt + pumps.
I have never been one for graphic tees but I thought outside the box a bit + became a fan of them when I dressed ’em up like I did here.
If you have a bunch of graphic tees whether for the holiday season or anytime, an easy way to dress them up is pairing them with a chic midi skirt like this one + some pumps.
I am convinced every gal needs a classic pair of white pumps in her wardrobe. No matter what the season, they look perfect with every look. I feel the same way about the chic white pleated skirt. It is a great skirt to wear season to season + I have work this with moto jackets, crop tops, sweaters etc!
I am in full shopping mode picking up stocking stuffers, food + treats, last minute decorative accents and more. I am also heading to various holiday parties + needed a chic look that is perfect for any crowd. I have some corporate holiday parties to go to, so when I found this Calvin Klein A-Line dress, I knew it was pure perfection (it’s actually on sale for under $60 from various sites). Paired with a warm yet stylish coat like this red one, it makes for the ultimate holiday look!
Whether you are looking for the perfect Christmas Eve, Christmas Day or holiday gathering outfit, this one is great for any occasion.
This Calvin Klein dress comes in a variety of colors + the silhouette is perfect for date night, parties, girl’s night + more. It comes in spring colors as well as winter so it can be a transitional piece to wear season to season.
I styled the dress with a bold Gucci belt which was the perfect way to add a little extra ‘glitz‘ or ‘glam‘ to a simple dress. P.S. this Gucci belt also makes for a great holiday gift for yourself or others! 😉
As you should know by now, I LOVE a fun Pop Of Color, so this bold red coat is a great addition to your wardrobe. I linked to a few styles below at different price points from different retailers.
