Happy New Year

Happy New Year! I hope you had a wonderful 2013, and you have a wonderful New Year's Eve.  I'm out of town again for the holiday, but will begin posting again on Thursday; see you in 2014 :)

Leather Cap

Back in the fall I purchased this leather cap, and I love it!  It's been a go-to staple for me, especially on bad hair days {or when I just don't feel like doing it!}  I plan on wearing it to go me through the dull winter season.  I hope you're getting over the post-Christmas blues by spending time with family and friends, and with some awesome sales that are happening right now! I will be in NYC for a long weekend so no new post until Monday.  Enjoy the last of the holiday season!

"A Conspiracy of Love"

Merry Christmas Eve!  Today is arguably my favorite day of the year, and in honor of that I wanted to share my favorite Christmas quote and Christmas photos:

"Blessed is the season which engages the whole world in a conspiracy of love."
- Hamilton Wright Mabie

Holiday Look: Christmas Eve

Happy Almost-Christmas Eve!  I actually like Christmas Eve even better than Christmas Day; I love all of the excitement and anticipation of Christmas morning, and I usually wear a more glamorous outfit on Christmas Eve.  Instead of the typical little black dress or sequin number, I am opting for a silver-tone, almost white dress with navy and rhinestone accents.  I bought the dress on sale at H&M this summer, and the earrings are from Jewelmint x Richard Chai's collaboration {buy here} that I just could not resist - they are so striking and just what I wanted for the holidays.  The ring I am borrowing from my Mom for the night; it's vintage with diamonds and sapphires and I ADORE it! To tie it all together, I am wearing one of my favorite nail polish shades for the holidays - OPI's "Manicurist of Seville."  What do you plan on wearing for Christmas Eve and/or Christmas?

Fashion + Philanthropy Friday

Happy Friday again! I discovered Seven Hopes United after reading a recent post by Polish and Flair {here}, and I was so impressed by all of the products to choose from - especially since they are all fair trade!  I love {this} necklace, and think it's wonderful that the artisans from Ecuador that make the jewelry have emerged from poverty and make a livable wage.  How cute would this be for the holidays!?

Polka Dots + Sparkle

I've come to adore statement necklaces, in all styles and colors.  I recently paired my new favorite one with this bright polka dot sweater to add some sparkle to an otherwise preppy outfit.  I plan on wearing this necklace throughout the holiday season and beyond - what is your favorite statement piece?

Rose Gold Holiday

I took advantage of Cyber Monday this year, and I snagged these fab rose gold heels that are so perfect for the holidays! ShoeMint is constantly offering great deals {sign up here}, so I'm keeping my eye out for more holiday-appropriate heels that I can buy :)
