Feeling Festive

When the holidays roll around each year, I start getting excited about embracing the season in any way I can. One of the ways I do that is by decorating our home of course, which I mentioned in this last post here, but perhaps what I enjoy even more is dressing up in festive prints and bright reds and greens. Whether it's for a party, or just for a casual, everyday look, it's a fun way to get excited about the holiday season.

I've mentioned this before, but I love love love to wear neutrals most of the time, so it's a big change for me when I decide to wear a bright color. When I spotted this skirt at J. Crew during one of their sales last month, I just knew I had to have it for Christmastime! One of my favorite details on this skirt is the gold zipper, as well as the scoop side slits. 

I found these Vince Camuto block heels a month ago and I have been wearing them with almost everything! I didn't actually own a pair of black heels up until I bought these, which is surprising considering they are the most basic item every women needs in her closet! Don't worry, I joined the club and am so happy with this pair. The curved shape of the heel makes them really comfortable to wear, and the patent leather makes them just slightly more dressy.

What I love about this look is it can easily transition from the office to dinner and cocktails. I paired it with this J. Crew sweater (old, similar here) for work, but switch it out for a more structured jacket or a shimmery shawl and you're ready to go! 

I've been eyeing a few other festive pieces at J. Crew this week, like this pom-pom sweater and this tartan print puffer vest. Right now they are doing 40% off gifts, and 30% off everything else! Hurry over before your favorites sell out! What do you love to wear during the holidays that makes you feel merry and bright? I'd love to know in the comments below! Happy Friday! xo
