Holiday Attire

The Holiday Season has finally arrived! This year has been an incredible whirlwind and it is hard to believe we are here already, but I love it!  I love that everyone seems to be a little more cheerful, everything is decorated and people are constantly dressed in festive attire.  When dressing for holiday festivities I tend to turn to reds and sparkle to stay within the theme of the season.  It seems as if flannel is here to stay and that luckily, sequins and tastefully glittered clothing aren’t going anymore, which means you must have something holiday appropriate in your closet.  Stick with the holiday classics but make sure to pair it with a modern piece to bring your ensemble current.  As always, I turn to leather, but there are so many incredible options to turn to to update your festive attire.

Stars and Stripes

Summer is here and America’s Birthday is quickly approaching!  I always believe in dressing up for the occasion and the 4th of July is no exception.  This Thursday I encourage everyone to break out all of their red, white and blue gear and mix and match to your delight!  Fingers crossed the rain decides to take a break long enough for the sun to shine through leaving us with a clear night sky for optimal fireworks viewing.  While my plans are still TBD because the April showers have decided to last until mid summer, one thing I do know is that festive garb is a must for the day.

Thanksgiving Fur

This post is dedicated to my favorite holiday, Thanksgiving.  The key to dressing for success on Thanksgiving is embracing comfortable, stretchy clothes.  Go Try It On, one of my favorite fashion apps, asked me to put a Thanksgiving outfit together that is fabulous and forgiving of seconds. Every Thanksgiving my family goes around the table and says what they are thankful for and like every year, I am thankful for my family and friends.  I am thankful for their support, love, laughs, strength and traditions.  The moments I share with them mean everything!

I hope everyone had an incredible Thanksgiving with loved ones and, of course, enjoyed extra helpings.

Vest: Adrienne Landau (last season, similar found here), Pants: BDG (old, similar found here), Shirt: Vanishing Elephant (found here), Shoes: Zara (old, similar found here), Bracelets: Random Assortment, some of which are Aldo and Urban Outfitters (found here and here), Watch: Michael Kors (found here), Necklaces: NaHoku & Gorjana (found here)

These pants are absolutely my favorite and I wear them with everything! They are also super stretchy which makes them perfect for Thanksgiving.

This shirt is another one of my favs. I love chambray and because this is a mens shirt it is the perfect amount of oversized.

A vest can completely transform a look and fur just takes it to another level.

Red, White & Blue

Happy 4th of July!! The 4th of July is a wonderful day of celebration, normally spent by the pool or at the beach with a cool drink in hand and red, white & blue covering every surface possible.  The 4th can be a slightly scary day for fashion, with looks veering more towards costume than stylish.  Fear not though…there is a way embrace our patriotic colors and still look fabulous and impeccably put together.  I hope everyone has an amazing 4th of July, enjoys the fireworks, and embraces red, white & blue in the most fashionable way possible!

I am absolutely obsessed with these leggings and overall hipster grunge look!
