Holiday Ready: Christmas Soiree


Jacket: Chicwish c/o | Jumpsuit: Topshop for Nordstrom {also in black} | Shoes: Zara {similar} | Bag: Kelly Wynne c/o | Earrings: Baublebar c/o | Watch: MK | Bracelet: Brandy Pham c/o | Sunglasses: Karen Walker | Champagne: Chandon c/o | Lips: Stila 'Beso'

Today's look is my second 'holiday ready' outfit and perfect for an evening, Christmas party.  I love getting all dolled up for a holiday soiree and this red jumpsuit is so festive.  Of course since it's absolutely freezing outside, I had to layer this faux fur coat over top, but I love the extra chic factor it adds.  Throw in a little gold sparkle and you've got the perfect holiday look!

Holiday Ready: Causal Party

Photos c/o Olivia Griffin Photography

Top: J.Crew | Skirt: J.Crew {obsessed, love the pants too} | Earrings: J.Crew | Watch: MK | Bracelet: Brandy Pham c/o | Sunglasses: Prada | Boot Socks: Madewell {old, similar} | Boots: DUO c/o {love these} | Handbag: GiGi New York c/o | Lips: Stila 'Beso'

During the holidays, I love getting a head start on outfit planning for Christmas parties and festive get-togethers.  This outfit is so perfect for a casual, yet comfortable Christmastime gathering and one of my favorite things I've styled for the holidays so far.  I mean, is there anything better than a mini skirt with a gold, sequin stripe + a flannel shirt?  Not in my opinion.  When I spotted these two pieces on opposite sides of the store while shopping in J.Crew a few weeks ago, I knew the complementing colors would pair really well. (Although my mom thought I was a little crazy, to be honest!)  I love throwing together mismatched pieces that together make the perfect outfit.  Stay tuned for my second holiday ready look on Wednesday's post!

Bordeaux + Gingham

Jacket: Chicwish c/o | Shirt: J.Crew {love this, too} | Pants: Paige | Boots: DUO c/o {love these} | Bag: ZAC Zac Posen c/o | Necklace: Baublebar c/o | Sunglasses: Ray Ban c/o | Lips: YSL 'Rouge Pur Couture' #31

I know, I know, this gingham shirt...again.  I honestly can't get enough of it!  It goes with everything and I love pairing black + white with fall colors, like bordeaux.  I actually just bought the same top in navy + red, as seen in Wednesdays post, so you can expect to see a lot more of that one too!  Such a great staple piece for fall layering.

I hope you all have a fun weekend!  The hubs has been out of town all week for work, but comes home tonight, so I can't wait for that.  I'm thinking a little dvr + ordering in thai food will be our friday date night plans and I can't think of anything I'd rather do.  Cheers to the weekend, lovelies!

Plaid + Gingham

 Top: J.Crew | Jeans: 7FAM | Scarf: J.Crew | Boots: Tory Burch {on sale!} | Clutch: Clare Viver | Sunglasses: Karen Walker | Earrings: J.Crew {similar} | Ring: Brandy Pham c/o | Lips: Stila 'Beso'

One of my favorite things about cool weather is plaid.  That may sound silly, but seeing fall-colored plaids and ginghams make me so excited for the holidays.  If you saw this photo on instagram over the weekend, you probably noticed my love for plaid...even cozy socks.  When I saw this top + blanket scarf in J.Crew, I knew they would be great fall staples, alone or together.  I love mixing prints (maybe a little too much, hence throwing in the leopard), but especially with plaid + gingham.  I styled this outfit for a causal Sunday around town, but it would also be so cute with a skirt + tights.  I'll be styling it a few different ways in the next couple of months, I'm sure!

It has been SO cold here in Greenville the last few days.  Last night it got down to 18 degrees!!  Trust me, there's nothing that I love more than chilly, holiday weather, but it is literally freezing!  Luckily blanket scarves are totally in style, but completely functional right now, too!  Tonight's definitely going to be a crockpot soup + hot chocolate for dessert kind of night!

Gift Guide: The Entertainer

Entertaining

Glasses | Candle | Lamp | Gold Tray | Gold Rimmed Chargers | Thank You Notes | Ornaments | Coasters | Flatware | Gold Pillow | Gold Pouf | Plaid Mug | Cable Knit Throw

Entertaining during the holiday season is one of my absolute favorite things to do! The chill in the air, surrounded by friends and family, listening to Christmas music, gathered around the table laughing and enjoying amazing food- it doesn't get much better than that.  However, being a great hostess and preparing for the get-together can be just as much fun!  When we decorate our home for Christmas, I try to use that time to de-clutter and organize,  Sometimes we get complacent in what's lying around the house and when you take a step back, it's nice to switch up the decor a bit!  I'm currently in the process of switching out a few necessities in our house and the holidays are the perfect time of year to do so.  Even if you're not usually the entertainer, this gift guide is perfect for hostess gifts or gift giving to the girl who is all about chic, home decor.  You can't go wrong with Kate Spade ornaments or gold confetti champagne glasses!
