Did you know Christmas is in 9 days? That seems absolutely crazy to me. It feels just like yesterday that it was the beginning of Fall. ATM Holiday parties seem to be never ending for me + N (& they get to be rather expensive, especially if you feel the need to have a different outfit at each one). I tend to always grab the same ol' things to wear, so I decided to go a little bit out of my comfort zone & rock a gold glitter skirt, Kate Spade polka dot tights, black Dor'say heels, a cute blazer, & of course some sparkle! This outfit can easily be thrown together since most of us all have a cute black blouse, a black blazer + a black heel in our closet. To add the pop of gold + glitter to complete this Holiday look, was all under $60 (skirt $34 + Kate Spade polka dot tights $25). To get good wear out of the gold skirt at other Holiday parties you can add a red or green blouse & a plain black tight. Or you can pair it with an ugly Christmas sweater & you are set for your next Holiday party! If you are looking for more affordable Holiday Party ideas head over to one of the 7 bloggers listed below for more outfit inspiration!

Can you believe it is already December & that we are three weeks out from Christmas? Craaazy. With the Christmas Holiday quickly approaching I am constantly looking for that additional dose of sparkle for any outfit. Even though I love getting dressed up, I also love taking simple everyday layers and adding elements of sparkle, like these Loren Hope cuffs: Alex Cuff, Sarra Cuff & Clara Cuff. This past weekend, I spent some time in South Carolina visiting family. Saturday morning, we headed to my Granddad's house out on the water, which makes for a super chilly day. So I grabbed my coziest outfit, layered up & added some sparkle, duh! 

Doses of added sparkle (even on rainy days) helps brighten my mood. Lucky for you, I teamed up with The Jeweler's Wife to give you your choice of ONE Loren Hope Cuff (choices are: Alex CuffSarra Cuff & Clara Cuff). The Jeweler's Wife is a new site owned by Reeds Jewelers, but offers budget-friendly pieces that don't break the budget. Some of my current favorites from the site are: Pretra Pendant, Alex Cuff in Pine, and Beatrix the Beetle Cuff.  You can def. get some Holiday Shopping done with $10 off your first $30 purchase use code JW1030, plus free shipping!
