Fashion Friday: NYE Dressing By Effort Level.

So, it’s New Years Eve tomorrow night and I bet a lot of you have fun plans. As do I. Sitting on my couch (post putting Henry down), watching some episodes of The Crown with Andrew and a nice bottle of red and then going to bed by 10. BOOM. I bet you’re so jealous.  But really, I can think of nothing I want to do more than that.  I’m the youngest granny on the block, and I embrace it now, instead of getting all FOMO about life like I used to.  No glittery Instagram party snaps will make me feel bad about slothing it on the sofa this year!  But more power to you if you are so motivated! So I partnered with Nordstrom, my favorite place to shop online, to bring you four New Years Eve outfits based on your effort level from 1(leggings) to 4 (Spanx).  You’re bound to find inspiration in at least one of these ensembles, if not for tomorrow night, than another night in the near future.

Fashion Friday: A Modern Day Jackie

One of the things I hope to do over the holidays is go see Jackie.  The trailer has me in awe and as someone who has not only always admired Jackie’s style but also was taught to revere her in boarding school (she went to Miss Porters as well and her name seems to always be attached to the school now!)  I’m really interested in cracking the “perfect” exterior of this fashion icon– and I’ve heard the movie does that.

Fashion Friday: Holiday Dressing For All Ages with Halsbrook

I am psyched to introduce you to a new online shop I just discovered, Halsbrook. It’s unique in that I really feel like all ages can shop here (I know that you guys range in age from your 20’s to your 70’s, so this kind of source is so wonderful for those who like this blog!)  The aesthetic is sort of Kate Middleton meets Audrey Hepburn meets Jackie O.  Kinda perfect, right?  They approached me about becoming an EOS sponsor and I was thrilled.  I think their collection is high quality, tightly edited and refreshingly classic (with an edge).  So I put together some holiday looks from their shop to share today in hopes that inspires you in your dressing this season.

I love this look (and have that necklace on it’s way to me as I type!)  Comfortable and classic but with fun touches in the accessories. Oh and did I mention this trench not only has a leopard lining but also a zip in FLEECE lining for when it’s rainy AND cold? Genius (also available in tan).

This dress is STUNNING. Like, truly stunning.  And paired with big statement earrings and a smokey eye is absolute perfection for a fancy holiday fete.

Fashion Friday: Holiday Party Outfits with Nordstrom

Before we know it, it’s going to be time to go to holiday parties. How is time moving at warp speed this year??? To avoid the last minute shopping trip (which inevitably leaves you will a closet full of items you only SORT of like because you just wanted something “new” to wear) I put together a bunch of gorgeous holiday party outfits from Nordstrom to help you plan ahead and think about what kind of look you want for whatever gathering you need to attend.  From super fancy to my favorite fancy-casual blend, you’re sure to find something fab to add to your closet. CLICK ITEMS FOR LINKS!

Not Your Basic Black

  1. I love this mix of a cozy sweater and faux leather leggings (from Spanx- guaranteed to suck everything in!) with a giant statement earring.
  2. I am OBSESSED with this Milly dress– so classic and old school femme!  Pair it with an awesome ankle-wrap sandal and bold red pedicure!
  3. I wore my black jumpsuit to death to holiday parties, and this one would look so awesome with a patterned heel and deep green moto jacket.

Champagne + Shimmer

  1. This gold lace long sleeve dress is EVERYTHING.  Stay warm with a long wine colored wool coat and simple heels and earrings (big jewelry and busy shoes would be overkill with a dress like this!)
  2. This rose gold silk skirt would look incredible with a cropped sweater and fun sparkly studs. Kinda obsessed with this look, to be honest.
  3. There isn’t much I love better for a casual holiday party than a metallic top paired with jeans and killer heels! Top with a faux fur vest for texture (and warmth).
