holiday glam.

we are SO excited to have been asked to do a guest post on fellow blogger, Always Ashten's blog!

Ashten is dating one of our dear friends Kyle {make sure to check out his food blog, mini fridge blog} and learned about our blog through him. Even though we have never met in person, our blog lovin' selves have come to know one each other through our posts and we can't wait until we finally get to meet her. she is insanely funny, has an adorable dog named Warner, and just happens to love our style, which we couldn't be more flattered about.

we have officially hit holiday season and we couldn’t be more excited!!

by the time this post is live there will be 20 days until Christmas! eek! this only means one thing…that every weekend will be filled with every kind of party {christmas, holiday, cocktail and maybe the most fun, the ugly sweater} you name it, its happening this month!

we already know what you are all thinking…WHAT AM I GOING TO WEAR!?

welp, we’re glad you asked…

1.      don’t be afraid of sequins –We LOVE sequins, especially for the holidays and new years eve {duh}.  it is the perfect standout piece and  you can always find a good deal on them. plus they come in almost every form-skirts, shorts, dresses and tops, but don’t over do it. pick one piece and one piece only! 

2.      keep it simple – one key item per outfit. don’t feel like you have to wear everything “holiday” at once. a sequin skirt, simple tank and statement necklace is the perfect balance of simple, yet glam. you want to stand out, but not look like a disco ball while doing it.

3.     something old and something new – your closet is your friend {believe it or not}. one of the best ways to avoid buying an entirely new outfit just for a holiday get together is to wear what you already own and purchase only one new piece.  it’s crazy how a brand new top can make your year old sequin pants feel new again.

4.      red lips. red lips. red lips – did we mention red lips?! this is one of our favorite accessories because a red lip can spruce up any outfit. or bring you from day to night in a matter of sixty seconds. a lot of women are afraid of this, but you’re just going to have to trust us on this one. it’s perfect for the holidays and if you’re scared then start light and when you get more comfortable go all in with a dark hue. {just a tip: if you’re doing a bold lip, go easy on the eyes with just a bit of liner and mascara {one feature at a time ladies}.

5.     accessorize-we can’t say it enough, but accessories can reinvent ANY outfit no matter what time of the year.  statement necklaces, headwraps, stacked rings and more are the perfect addition to compliment your look. And the more sparkle, the better-especially during the holidays! {note to self: if wearing an all sequin dress, less is more when it comes to your accessories. a simple bangle or cocktail ring will do just the trick}.
