The holidays are one of my favorite times to glam up. Yet, I’m a stickler for getting multiple uses from all the items in my closet, holiday dresses included. This is my first Gal Meets Glam dress and it did not disappoint. Its beautiful feminine design and color caught my eye and I knew it would be a year around winner.
I feel so feminine in this polka dots, pleats and ruffles Gal Meets Glam dress with its flowy short bell sleeves. This dress calls for delicate shoes, so slipped on these Yuul Yie nude Lissom 70 slingbacks. A nude shoe is an essential wardrobe item because it goes with everything and in all seasons. This is one item you should get the best quality your budget can afford.
I love statement earrings so I choose these BaubleBar pearl studs with a crystal-embellished palette to keep with the festivities of the season. A simple pearl or diamond stud would be beautiful if you wanted a demure look.
Our sweet girl Maddie loves to photo bomb. She’s been in the last several pics and she’s getting really good at it.
This dress is a gorgeous option for the holidays, but it will easily go to a spring or summer wedding, graduation party, dinner or afternoon event. For summer this would look adorable with sandals or kitten heel mules. Below are a few of my favorites year around dresses.
There’s nothing like a faux fur coat to top things off. I love wrapping myself in affordable luxury like this French Connection faux fur coat (sold out). I recently added this Urban Outfitters jacket to my collection. It seriously gets compliments every time I wear it. Below are some of my favorites.
I constantly remind myself to take time and enjoy the holiday season. Sometimes, that’s easier said than done. I push myself to get my Christmas “to-do list” accomplished early in the month so I can enjoy visiting family. This self-imposed pressure can leave me feeling stressed, tired and overworked at times. One of my favorite things to decompress is sitting by the fire, enjoying the hypnotizing blinking tree lights and breathing in the quiet. If that doesn’t work I write to Santa.
