{holiday inspiration}: gold + black party attire!

November 30, 2012
Okay, so I'm not sure what your calendar is looking like, but mine just got seriously full. With holiday parties that is! Yesterday, I shared some fun hostess ideas, but today is all about what to wear. I actually counted and I have 6 holiday parties that I've already been invited to this season. 6! I don't know about you, but if you're anything like I am, the second after you start receiving party invites... your next thought is... "what am I going to wear?" So today I thought I'd share with you one of my favorite color palettes to wear for the holiday season. Glittery gold and jet black are just meant to go hand in hand! Plus with statement pieces like these, it's easy to mix and match to create slightly different looks for all the parties you'll be attending.


From that sparkly dress, to those black onyx earrings to that gorgeous little cocktail ring... there really is so many gorgeous ways to accessorize this season. When it comes to pulling an outfit together I'm all about mixing in some fun patterns! That's why I'm absolutely smitten with those striped flats and that polka dot clutch. Oh, and can we just take a closer look at those flats for a second? Aren't they just the cutest pair you ever did see? I'm in love with the glitter toe accent and those perfect little bows. If shoes could talk I swear these would say ''where's the champagne?'' They truly are so fun! So there you have it, here is just one of my favorite party looks. So tell me... how many parties are on your calendar this season? Oh, and this reminds me... I'm actually going to a holiday party tonight! So it's off to get ready I go! Have a great weekend, lovelies!

{holiday party palettes}: festive ideas for the hostess!

November 29, 2012
Anyone hosting a holiday party this year? Well, when it comes to hosting a holiday party, I have to say that there really are so many beautiful ideas! I don't know about you, but I still can hardly believe December will be here in just two days! I'm so happy to start celebrating all things Winter! I know I sort of jumped the gun with all of the holiday talk mid-November - but what can I say? I just love this time of year! For me, Winter is a time to start bundling up in layers, and cuddling up with loved ones! It's a time of celebration and tradition. But I have to admit that one of the most exciting parts of December for me are all of the holiday parties!

So today I thought I'd take a look back at some of the palettes I've put together in the year's past. I definitely love the way these palettes capture such a festive, holiday vibe. Whether you're drawn to that teal and gold little number, that glitzy gold palette or this beautiful brown combination ... my hope is that these palettes will inspire your upcoming holiday parties and perhaps spark a few new ideas? So tell me, who's hosting a party this year?

{pantone palette}: poinsetta 17-0000

November 26, 2012
Now that Thanksgiving is over, it's okay for me to start dreaming of all things Winter. Right? I don't know about you, but the holidays have a way of putting me in the absolute best mood. That's why I thought I'd take a minute and revisit a palette that I created last year in celebration of the season! Featuring the perfect shade of red, Pantone's Poinsettia is really the stuff that Christmas dreams are made of. Who's with me?

For me, this board definitely captures the idea of going home for the holidays! Frosty landscapes and festive decor... I can almost taste the egg nog. Can't you? I'm just obsessed with that pair of red wellies. Oh, and nothing could look cozier than that little red coat. Want to add curb appeal to your house for the holidays? I just love those window boxes complete with the prettiest red bows I ever did see. So what you do think? Are you loving this shade of red as much as I am?
