HOLIDAY

Happy Almost Thanksgiving! And did you know its only 36 days till Christmas? Let’s face it: the hardest people on your list is your Dad, Grandpa, and/or husband/boyfriend. Am I right? At least this is the case for myself. Perplexed with the flood of online choices, I asked Reid to help me out and round up some of his ALL TIME favorites from his favorite jeans to headphones, to tees that match our boys. Hope this list helps you prepare for the ones you love. May you bless them with your thoughtful gifts, and when in doubt, add a handwritten note.

Grace and Peace,

Shalice

It’s that time of year when you have holiday parties to attend and nothing to wear. Enter the classy LBD. I love a good LBD and classy heels for any date night out or Holiday party. Especially ones with pom poms. If you’re looking for a pro tip, buy your holiday dress NOW before everyone rushes 2 day shipping for theirs. I ordered mine for my birthday fête and can’t wait to get it. See some of my favorite dresses below. Hurry – limited sizing and give yourself a round of applause for being the early bird. Congrats! Which are your favorites?

A good party shoe doesn’t take itself too seriously and has a touch of whimsy. See some of my picks below:

Easter dress under $100 :: suede trench similar :: blush heels :: necklace :: lips :: sunnies :: foundation ::

Easter is Sunday, and you don’t have a lot of time to prepare, but you want something less than $100? Problem solved. Here, I wore a satin dress, suede trench and blush heels. I kept similar tones together and added a chic trench to add an overall polish. I like the idea of a dress I don’t spend a mini fortune on so I have more of a budget for shoes, a designer bag and not a mini heart attack over a coffee spill. Yes, I’m speaking from experience. I also put this outfit on my shop page, and down below. I mean, how cute is this gingham cold shoulder dress with a belt?

pb274518What are you wearing for the holidays? An ugly sweater? Maybe more sequins? Well, seriously, what is more festive than a champagne wrap dress? Not much. I’m digging its laid back chic, champagne color and silky smooth comfort. Here, I styled it with camel tone boots and a natural lip. If we’re able to steal away for a date night, I’ll switch it up to these flirty sandals. Happy Cyber Monday, hope you can shop till you drop, in your robe, coffee in hand. Another date night inspiration in this post if you missed it.

Tis the season – for parties and sequin pants! I think we all know that moment when we stand in front of our closet trying to find that perfect outfit for the holiday party–pizzaz and wow, without Too Much or Overdoing it. It’s a hard balance, folks. And here is where the sequin pants make their blessed appearance. Sequin pants (the one’s I’m wearing are $25!) and a black bell sleeved top is a great choice for pretty much any holiday event. It’s classy and sparkly, and affordable! Throw in a statement heel, and you’re set. I’ve shown some fun options below. Off to enjoy some almond milk egg nog! Cheers!

Since our holiday plans are at a minimum since we’re moving, I like the idea of a $50 dress. It’s not only soft, but boasts a flattering mock-neck turtleneck. Since it’s too cold to sport the sleeveless dress outside, I paired it with my favorite faux-fur collar coat and slouchy boots. Now, if only moving was this easy! Stay tuned for my next holiday dress pick from TOPSHOP.  XO shalice
