It feels like we just started getting ready for the holidays and now I’m already talking about New Years! What! Can you believe we’re only 3 weeks away from 2018?! We’ll be ringing in the new year in Ireland with my sister and her fiance (where they live) and I’m already counting down the days. We have a bit of a full travel schedule before, flying first to NYC for work, and then from NYC to California to spend Christmas with my inlaws, so we’re trying to get as much done now (work, packing, gifts, outfit planning/prepping) as possible. I’ve already been thinking about what I’m going to wear to celebrate and since many of you have been asking me about my favorite party dresses, I put together my top ten and ended up buying one of my favorites from the list.
Getting dressed up this time of year is my absolute favorite. Even if it’s going a little extra for just dinner and drinks. I did that this past weekend with this faux fur jacket, these earrings and my new favorite fluffy bag. Because, why not? This week we have a handful of parties and I couldn’t resist getting this gorgeous gold Nili Lotan dress that I bought at Hampden, my favorite Charleston store, for upcoming holiday events. I went with a vintage vibe, twisting my hair back and adding these Jennifer Behr statement stud earrings. I love that the dress itself is quite simple and understated, but with the gold and slight shimmer, can easily be transformed into the ultimate party dress.
