With my new career I’ve started changing the way I shop. I have to be smarter about what I spend money on and make sure it has a lot of wearability. This little red dress from Closet London stuck out to me because it’s wearable for a variety of different occasions. I can wear this to the office, weddings, holiday parties… pretty much anything!

This dress is so soft! It’s not one of those fits-like-a-glove dresses, which I’m actually pretty happy about. Sometimes I really need a break from sucking in all the time, hah!
The ties around the shoulder actually tie, which is lovely because it makes them adjustable! Also, it has pockets. Which is a win in my book. I am a firm believer that everything should have pockets. This dress is going to be perfect to get me through the next few months! I’ll be wearing it A LOT.
I’m taking a survey…. does it feel like Christmas is right around the corner to you? Because it does not to me. After you kind of grow up and stop believing in Santa there are only a few years following that actually have that exciting Christmas time feel to them. I always thought when I had children of my own that excitement would come back but it’s really lacking this year, ha! I think it’s because I’m waiting for a big snow storm… it must be SO weird to celebrate Christmas in a state that doesn’t have winter, ya know? I couldn’t imagine that, nor would I want to!

That awkward moment when your hair matches your necklace…haha! I love this necklace from Sterling Forever. The mix of pink and gold is to die for but the fierce spikes are just SO me. It adds just a touch of edge to an otherwise very feminine and classy outfit.
Matt got me this faux fur coat YEARS ago… I think maybe even our 2nd Christmas together? I’ve always loved it but I rarely wear it because I feel like such a Jersey Housewife in it, haha! Fortunately, fur coats have seem to make a comeback this year so I’m taking great pleasure in breaking this hot little number out of my closet every now and then.
Have you noticed that this is my go-to clutch yet? It’s not even the last time you’re going to see it in my holiday look book mini-series. I’m obsessed with it. So this is another look I might be found wearing on Christmas Eve. As I said in my last post, Christmas Eve is typically the more festive holiday for me, Christmas day and night are much more casual and relaxed. I love the berry hue of this dress, I paired it with my favorite berry lipstick from YSL and black diamond cocktail ring from Roman Luxe. I swooned over this ring for a loooooong long time before it became mine. It’s perfect for the holiday season, isn’t it?
