Gold Sequin Pants

Another holiday party look today, and I just keep finding ways to dress up in pants (which are warmer and more comfortable, if you ask me). ;)

We still have 13 days left of December, which means you can still donate to Smiley Kylie, PS I Adore You's December Cancer Cutie. I've already donated myself and if you're looking for something different to do this year with your family or coworkers, donating to Kylie's fight against cancer is a great way to get in the true Christmas spirit. You can donate as little as $1 on PS I Adore You's site and help Kylie's family reach their $10,000 goal (they're still $2,400 shy).

Whatever your plans or traditions, I hope you're enjoying this beautiful time of year.

Thanks for reading, and be sure to check out my Instagram today for a chance to win $100 to shop the great deals at!

Holiday Ready with GUESS

jumpsuit: GUESS c/o | heels: GUESS c/o | faux fur jacket: nordstrom {still in stock here} | clutch: ps i adore you c/o {similar here} | glasses: prada | bracelets: jcrew, tory burch for fitbit | necklace: jilly bean jewelry c/o | pearl ring: t+j designs c/o | lips: 'rebel' by mac

The holiday season is one of my favorite times of year, especially when it comes to dressing up and going glam. And when I need a glitzy dress, classic heels or a sleek jumpsuit (one for me, one for you!), GUESS is always top of mind because their selection of holiday-ready attire and accessories is off the charts. You may think of GUESS when you need a pair of jeans (they began as a jeans company, after all), but the GUESS Holiday Collection is a great place to turn for inspiration and guidance to find the perfect look for whatever your occasion (not to mention the confidence that comes from wearing such an iconic brand).

Happy Holidays!

Special thanks to GUESS and People StyleWatch for partnering on this post.

Pardon moi while I'm a bit behind this week. Between wrapping up work projects before the holiday break, spending time with friends and family, and completing my Christmas shopping/gift hunting, I am burning the candle at both ends. Can't complain about the weather, though. It's been mild enough that I'm wearing these shooties non stop!

Hope you're enjoying this fun (and busy) time of year as well!

Makeup How-To: Two Holiday Looks

Urban Decay Eyeshadow Primer Potion // Naked2 Basics Palette in Stark and Frisk // Urban Decay Liner in Demolition // L'Oreal Voluminous Mascara in Black // NARS Audacious Lipstick in Olivia




Ahh… The holidays are upon us! When I’m not rocking the vampy lips, I’m generally leaning towards a more traditional holiday makeup look. Neutral eyes + red lips or dark smokey eyes + nude lips are generally my go-to's. They’re super easy to put together and never fail to impress.

I hope you enjoyed these tutorials and find them helpful for your holiday looks! I learned a few things on this one... red lips are my favorite paired with a soft, neutral eyeshadow, and a dramatic, smokey eye (when done the right way) makes my eyes look bigger. Plus, I've been doing the "nude lip" all wrong! I always go with a pink tint and Lauren taught me the art of a true nude shade. Eek! I think I just wrote a new stocking stuffer wish list for my husband... ;)

Happy Holidays!

Casual Plaid

Well, I'm certainly getting my fill of plaids this holiday season (last seen here, here and here). Up next: sequins. ;)

I can hardly believe we're counting down the days to Christmas already. I hope we can all take a moment to pause during the hustle and bustle of shopping to remember how much we have to be grateful for. In case you missed my post about P.S. I Adore You's December Cancer Cutie, I'd love for you to join me in donating to Kylie's fearless fight against Leukemia and help lift her parents' financial burdens this holiday. If you're not in a position to do so, that's okay, too. Read her story, and keep her in your prayers.

Thanks so much for visiting!
