Dress: old (similar) | Coat: LuLu’s

Painting the town “red” has a little bit of a different meaning this time of year.

When it comes to attire, the other 11 months it’s black, black, black…then December hits and BOOM! Red and green clothing everywhere you look! And make no mistake, I’m totally a victim of that seasonal trend.

So, I’ve only got 5 more days to bust out my favorite red & green pieces, then once the clock strikes 12 on Christmas…it’s back to black ๐Ÿ™‚

Have a great weekend! Enjoy the last of these holiday moments ~โ™ฅโ™ฅ

Top: old (similar) | Skirt: Forever 21 | Heels: Louboutin | Glasses: Prada

I have to make a shameful confession: I literally have no idea when I will wear this skirt again other than at Christmas!

But thinking about it, that’s what I actually LOVE about this skirt.

Is it outrageous in a fun way? Yes!

Is it OMGSOFUN? Yes!

Is it a showstopper? Double yes!

And that’s what puts the fun in fashion: playing dress-up & living in a fashionable fantasy every time you step into your closet…

Have a great week, thanks for stopping by!

To help us get in the holiday spirit, we trim the tree and decorate it with twinkling lights, buy each other gifts and listen to carols. But aside from those universal traditions, it seems every family has at least one holiday tradition that they claim as their own.

Here are some of my own personal family favorites:

Christmas Eve Mass: We attend mass as a family then head to my parents where the rest of the extended family joins us. There are about 25 of us and it’s still so much even as an adult!

Christmas Eve Before Bed (as a kid!): My sister and I would play our favorite Carpenters Christmas song on our little pink radio. We could only play it that night because there is a line in the song that says “…tomorrow is Christmas…” and well, you can’t just play that on ANY night, right? ๐Ÿ™‚

Christmas Day: We make opening presents an all day affair. Now that there are 9 of us adults, we open stocking and gifts, then take about a million breaks to eat leftovers from the night before. One year we didn’t even finish until almost 7pM…and it was the best!

The Beach Boys: Mom and Dad dancing together to “Little Saint Nick” in their Santa hats. Probably my most favorite moment of the morning, and I can’t wait to see it again this year!

I’d love to hear your family traditions! Comment below & thank you so much for reading!

Top: Nordstrom Rack | Skirt: Charlotte Russe | Clutch: old | Glasses: Pradaย 

I love any excuse to dress up; it just makes life so much more fun and we could all benefit from a little cheer, right? And with the holidays now in full effect, it was time to break out the festive feathers.ย 

Not sure about you guys, but Nordstrom Rack was never one of my top places to shop. I never found anything in stores, and it always seemed like everything was picked over before I even got there. All of that changed once I discovered their website (I know I’m SO late to the game, I’m beyond mortified to even be admitting this!!). Long story short, there were so many choices in all different sizes of pretty much…everything! This top was a total steal at $23, so I scooped it up knowing it would be great for future parties.ย 

What do you tend to wear to holiday parties? Glitz & glam or comfy & cute? I’d love to hear! โ™ฅ
