Merry & Bright


Hello everyone, welcome back!  I always like to have at least one red dress for the holidays, and this one from Express caught my eye instantly.  I love the sheer sleeves, the polka dots, and the long sleeved silhouette most of all!  Paired with my new favorite Dolce Vita booties, it has the perfect amount of festive flair!

Leave a Little Sparkle

The holidays may be over, but by no means does that require sparkle and sequins leave with them!  I love this Tommy Hilfiger sweater with its bright colors and subtle sparkle for keeping the dreary winter months exciting.  I tend to dread the bitter cold of January and February, but layering (especially collars and sweaters) is one of my favorite ways to make it a bit more exciting.  I went with minimal accessories to complement the sweater because, much to my dismay, the holidays are over.

Stay warm, and have a wonderful weekend!

Visions of Sugarplums


One of my favorite Christmas traditions is the ballet.  The Nutcracker will always be a timeless Christmas tale, and the ballet brings it to life so gracefully that it would be a shame to miss it even once.  Channeling the ballet’s tradition of pastels, I chose some cool winter tones and embellishments for some extra holiday glam.  This sweater is super cozy and warm, but I may add some tights with the temperatures still dropping consistently!  I also love this skirt with black for a sophisticated evening look- the embellishments add the perfect amount of extra sparkle for any holiday occasion!
