    My Favorite Time of Year


    I love this time of year! A hot cup of chocolate or coffee or tea. Christmas trees all lighted up. Holiday music everywhere you go. Fallen leaves on the ground with cooler temperatures for an excuse to be bundled up in scarves and layers, and everything warm. What’s not to love when there’s excitement in the air? The holiday festivities seem to bring out the best in people and of course, there are the amazing sales that also occur during this time of year!


    Happy that it is now totally acceptable to talk about the holidays and topics related to shopping for gifts for a loved one or even for yourself! When all is so festive in the world, it is such a beautiful time to talk about current finds that are reasonable priced for the holidays. My jacquard sweater knit scarf and beanie is currently under $10 and super soft and cozy.  Old Navy is having a 25% off sale on some items and free delivery on orders over $50 which is great if you’re still looking for gifts for loved ones. There’s still time, friends!

    I also bought this cute shirt dress from the Old Navy and I love how light and airy it is which will make for a great transition piece when we eventually get into the Spring. This is what happens when you step into a store with the intent of buying a few items for family and end up shopping for a few pieces for yourself as well.  They just have really good sales going on right now and it is all so reasonably priced too!

    For my boots and vegan leather satchel, I picked both up from Nordstrom.  They were also under a $100 and I’m utterly in love with the boots and the very minimal detailing on the low block heel. With all the walking around that we are planning on doing as a family over the holidays, my boots will definitely be worn for comfort and warmth. I am linking all my finds below.

    How to Find the Perfect Dress for Your Upcoming Holiday Events

    This time of year always presents a little challenge when it comes to maintaining your personal style, while looking chic for the holidays. I have learned that you can never go wrong with a classic look when it comes to style.

    Don’t you just wish it was acceptable to wear dresses like this every day?! I mean who doesn’t love a flattering and comfortable dress for the holidays? I especially love the v-neckline on this dress from Maggy London and the midi-length is complementary on anyone. It is the perfect outfit for any event and such a great dress for upcoming festivities. This dress fit so beautifully that I didn’t need any tailoring done so it was well worth it for me. Really, how pretty is the detailing and retro-inspired long sleeve on this dress?

    You can never go wrong with a classic dress

    I am obsessed with this one and I absolutely adore occasion wear! Any excuse to dress up around the holidays and I will! As a working mom, I usually dress in office wear on a day to day basis, sometimes investing in casual pieces for days with the family. However when it comes to events, knowing the dress code is important and that helps in planning the appropriate outfit for the event. I also like investing in dresses that can be worn multiple times and wouldn’t sit in my wardrobe for a one-time occasion.

    A few tips for finding the perfect occasion wear

    Regardless of your style, here are a few tips for finding the perfect occasion wear.

    • Look for outfits with clean and classic lines.
    • Do not show too much skin. Opt for long sleeves to stay warm during the holidays.
    • Do make an effort. Finding the right occasion wear dress takes planning and you want to find an outfit that is stunning without being too loud. This Diana Midi dress sparkles in the light without being out there. It is just gorgeous and super soft too!
    • Comfort! Invest in outfits that are comfortable because you will be wearing them for a while.
