What To Wear: Holiday Party Edition

From office parties to friend get-togethers, the holiday season is always super busy. I like to have a few outfit sets ready so I don’t have to stress the day of the event. Polyvore is one of my favorite sites to find ensembles and links to where you can purchase the items. Here are a few boards I have been lusting over for holiday outfits. As you can see, gold is my color of the season!

Colorful Christmas Decor

Although my personal preference for holiday decor is monochromatic (white and gold!), there is something to be said about bright and cheery colors. Whether you add a few accent pops of color or go all out neon, bright colors can be a fun way to change up the typical look of holiday decor. If you don’t want to go all out, you could simply add a fun accent ribbon to your monochromatic packages or add some fun neon garland on your white mantle. Here are a few decor schemes that I thought work perfectly to exude a dazzling effect without going overboard into tacky land!





Winter White Christmas Decor

Happy Friday! This weekend I am planning to purchase and decorate my Christmas tree so I thought I would share some of my holiday decor inspiration with you. I have always been a fan of white and metallic decor as this color scheme seems very chic and sophisticated. Here are some of my favorite photos. All via Pinterest!














Have a great weekend!





Holiday Window Shopping in NYC

The most wonderful time of the year has finally begun. I may be a bit biased, but there is no other place I would rather be during the holiday season than New York, greatest city in the world! At every turn you can discover beautiful holiday decorations that make the holiday spirit infectious. In Manhattan, the season begins with the famous Macy’s Thanksgiving Day parade and continues on through the month of December. Tonight is the annual lighting of the tree in Rockefeller Center, another huge holiday tradition. Christmas in Rockefeller Center is set to air tonight at 8pm on NBC. I will be watching!

To get my readers into the spirit, I wanted to share some beautiful images from around the city. Today, several dear friends have shared with me some of their most special photos. Enjoy!
