Fa-la-la-la Festive!

Everyone has a favorite holiday tradition. For some it is baking cookies, or watching, “A Christmas Story,” for the millionth time. My favorite part of the Christmas season is all of the fun holiday parties

There is nothing more fun than putting on a festive dress, some heels, and red lipstick! This is one of my favorite go to holiday party looks! Curls just scream Christmas to me, and so does the color red.

This Lands End dress is oh so elegant and super comfy, which makes it the perfect party dress. This darling sparkly pearl necklace from J. Crew makes the outfit oh so chic, and the heels give you the perfect lift!

Bows Pearls and Plaid

Although this week has been, “the most stressful time of the year,” as it has been finals week, I’m so happy that it is almost Christmas time!

Nothing says, “Happy holidays,” quite like this darling little red dress! I decided to wrap it up with a bow belt, because it truly felt like a gift when I found it! I actually found this dress over the summer, but I knew it would make a great Christmas dress!

The moral of the story is to think big picture when you try on clothes. You never know when you’ll find the perfect dress in the wrong season!

I hope that everyone is surviving finals week, and that you’ll find a bit of holiday cheer during, “the most stressful week of the year!”

Farewell Fall!

As it is the first week of December, I realize that it’s time to exchange my Fall outfits for my favorite festive wintery clothes, but before I do, I have to share what may just be my absolute favorite fall dress, as well as the story behind the rustic display in my backyard.

My family’s roots are in rural Illinois, but they have lived all over the world. From India to Spain to South America, and finally, Miami. While my uncle was in town for Thanksgiving, he helped me put up a few items we brought with us from my Great-grandfather’s farm. The hardest part of this project was digging out enough dirt to put the pump into the ground. In the end, it came together wonderfully, and is a beautiful reminder of my roots, and that hard work is always worth it.

Now onto this fabulous outfit! This Lush dress from Nordstrom is sooo cute, and because the material is so light it is perfect for a warm Miami Fall. I did have to tack the front together to avoid a severe wardrobe malfunction, but I adore the keyhole that perfectly frames my monogram necklace. My Jack Rogers flats are the perfect fall flat, and have been one of my favorites all season!

So say goodbye to fall foliage, and hello to the cozy Christmas season!
