Wardrobe Style Boards: Holiday Inspiration

‘Tis the season for merriment and merry holiday dressing :). I used to love getting dressed up for special events like New Years, Christmas Eve, holiday parties… I suppose I can attribute my throw-on-a-sweater-jeans-and-a-sparkly-necklace (if I’m lucky) attitude these days to life being so busy. Funny how adding another kid to the fold + a busy home + a job will do that. Oy vey.

But! my online shopping eye has been wandering and has found a few fun finds. Especially as we gear up for a winter wedding (my brother-in-law is getting married!), a rehearsal dinner and New Year’s Eve.

I’m especially enamored with shirt dresses as of late, this one in a beautiful moss green (one of many available colors by Tinley Road) is high on the list. I think that A-line dresses in general are quite flattering and versatile – they’re great for belting (a thin leather belt or a fat sparkly one), look great worn loosely, with sleeves rolled, matched with a pretty cardigan or a leather jacket… a piece that can transition from day to night or from spring to winter. Since San Diego is going through a semi-cool spell at the moment, I love the idea of a bootie during the cooler months and a nude heel come summer. And for the New Year’s Eve, how about a statement necklace?

Anna Kate has joined me with her own favorite New Year’s bash/winter wedding outfit idea – and as chance would have it, we were on the same wavelength this year, both choosing oversized gold watches, glittery jewelry and simple statement dresses. Ooooh I love her choice of red.

I’ll hand it off.


It’s wedding season here in Arizona now that the weather’s finally cooled down a bit. So I’m always on the lookout for pretty statement dresses, on sale if possible! This one from Madewell is my favorite find recently (take advantage of their 30% off sale!). I picture it with sparkly accessories, like this gorgeous necklace (also on sale!), sweet flats, and a big, shiny gold watch (find all of the links right here).

So perhaps dressing up will be in my near future, and it’s odd to say this, but that sounds very exciting right now :). Equally exciting? We are in count down mode for Christmas!

    I’m planning to wear a deep red dress to Mass this afternoon…and now you’ve got me thinking about some of the chunky necklaces I can add to it. Have fun at your winter wedding!
