The holidays are such a fun time of year but often times they can be bit stressful too. We all get caught up in the hustle and bustle, checking off the items on our to-do lists, and we spend a lot of time running ourselves and our families from one destination to another. Not to mention, many of us are hosting family and friends as well. Many times we forget to stop and think about ourselves and how we’d like to spend the holidays. If you’re anything like me, I always put others happiness first and find myself wearing one too many hats…especially this time of year.
I’m thrilled to be teaming up with Evereve this holiday season for their #HolidayYourWay campaign. Evereve is here to remind all of us busy Momma’s that it is OKAY to put yourself first and to make yourself a priority this holiday season. Brush off the pressure of perfection that is weighing heavily on your shoulders and focus on those things that truly make you happy. After all, its the imperfect moments that end up being the most perfect and the most memorable. We all know, everyone is happy when Momma is happy!
#HolidayYourWay is about embracing your style this holiday season however you see fit. I’m personally approaching the holidays with a more casual chic approach. Comfort is key for me this holiday season and I want to look festive, put together, and polished without feeling the need to get too dressed up!
As you know, I love wearing dresses and I also love animal print so I picked this gorgeous Inez Leopard Shift Dress and I layered it with this rose pink Monica Moto Jacket, which is so soft and comfortable. To keep this look more casual and comfortable, I paired this dress with a moto jacket and these Later On Booties. Dress this look up a bit more with a bold lipstick, sparkly earring or necklace, and a great pair of heels. This look is perfect for a holiday lunch with girlfriends or an evening holiday celebration.
In keeping with the my casual chic approach to my holiday style this season, I also selected this metallic stripe turtleneck, which has a bit of a tunic flare, and this Bikita jacket. The subtle metallic stripe elevates this look and the plum jacket adds a beautiful pop of color. I’m wearing a pair of 7 For All Man Kind jeans with a black velvet tuxedo stripe, the same Later On Booties that I paired with the leopard dress, and these sparkly Sadie Hoop Earrings. All be wearing this comfortable holiday look to friend and family gatherings throughout the holiday season.
