Spring forward…hmm, many more weeks more weeks is that? None. Zero. I decided today was the day. It was a sunny, gorgeous Sunday in NYC, and to me, that felt like spring. So, I made up my mind that it was.
Post Thanksgiving treats happen when you’re in that turkey coma, or still nibbling on leftovers, right? So what comes next? The very, merry ho-ho-holidays are here, and as quick as you can snatch up that tree, you realize that you’ll need a fancy little number to slip on, as you take on those holiday parties in style. Here are some of my favorite holiday items, that I’ve found on Black Friday super sale for you today. Take advantage of these spicy deals, and style your little heart out. I hope you had a fabulous Thanksgiving, loves!
For years I feared “matchy matchy” outfits. In no way, shape, or form did I want to flash back to the 90′s remembering the purple, multicolored flannel shirt I wore to school when I was young. The outfit had perfectly matching purple jeans, an identical plaid mini backpack, matching accessories, purple socks, and even glasses to coordinate. At the time, I had braces, and I’m fairly sure I chose the rubber bands around my braces to color coordinate as well. Head to toe, I was a vision in purple plaid. It makes me cringe just thinking about it, and I’m positive that photo evidence exists somewhere. Don’t get me wrong, a few years later, I did have some winners once the movie, Clueless rolled around. Pleated plaid skirts, and knee highs for the win! I have much fonder memories of those outfits.
I’m not a casual girl. I never have been. You’ll rarely see me in a t-shirt and jeans, and I barely own anything basic, with the exception of gym clothing. I’ve always been this way. I have an unlimited amount of sequined dresses, but hardly any casual weekend outfits and I never shop for them.
This past weekend I celebrated my birthday in style. I had a lovely afternoon planned, and the perfect dress to wear to for my celebration. I found a gorgeous Lace Shift Dress at J. Crew and couldn’t pass it up. It was a neon citrus yellow, made from Venetian lace. The silhouette is fitted, with and it has a simple, elegant illusion neckline. The great news is that this lovely dress is now on sale at J. Crew. I accessorized with jelly sandals by Stuart Weitzman, a beautiful Milly, studded bow bracelet, which I received as a gift, and mirrored aviators by Ray Ban.
