Fashion Friday: Holiday Event Dressing

There are SO many types of holiday events in the coming weeks and so I wanted to throw together some outfit options for different kinds of parties you might be attending!  From an urban dressy-casual look (my personal favorite- that blazer!) to more formal parties and everything in between!

Fashion Friday: The Joy of Holiday Dressing with J. McLaughlin

Many of you who follow me on Instagram asked about my outfit in a picture I posted of us on Thanksgiving.   This holiday we decided to do the “casual dress up” for our small, cold Connecticut turkey day in fabulous finds from J. McLaughlin.  I always trend towards preppy during holiday season, something about it brings out the Miss Porter’s graduate in me. I opted for an amazingly comfortable and flattering zip neck dress (that I now want in every color) with boots and a hint of fur and Andrew went the typical “dude” route in a plaid flannel paired with a a zip neck sweater and grey dress pants.  We’ll probably rock something very similar for Christmas too…

Fashion Friday: Winter White Holiday Dressing

I LOVE wearing creamy winter white during the colder months. In order for it to look appropriate you need to pack away your summer white denim and instead pick up some ivory toned wool, corduroy or flannel. Mix it up with delicious textures- knits, sequins and suede and you’re ready to rock this holiday. I’m thinking the first more casual outfit may have to happen for me this Christmas.  Which means white wine ONLY. :)

Fashion Friday: The Sweater I Won’t Take Off

Last weekend I was at Anthropologie with my sister-in-law and picked up this patterned sweater “coat”.  As I do often when in Anthro, I asked her if it was totally awesome or some kind of weird daytime bathrobe.  After trying it on I decided it was the former.  And since then I’ve worn it three times (yes, in one week- gross).  It’s just SO warm, so comfy and totally stylish.  Not to mention EASY. Add skinny jeans or leggings, boots (or heeled booties like these for a little dressier effect) and a tank underneath and you are ready to head out the door feeling so comfortable but looking together!  I adore pieces like this!
