 My roommate and her mom decorated our little apartment in all silver and blue holiday decor, and it was adorable! I cam home from Thanksgiving to a perfectly decorated apartment complete with these pretty little silver wreaths and a silver tinsel tree. It was such a nice little surprise! When I was putting this outfit together for the shoot I couldn’t help but grab the wreath off the wall for a few shots since it matched my pumps perfectly. The skirt comes in multiple colors (and is a great price!), but I have to say I really do love the green for the holidays.

Dress: Shabby Apple c/o, Shoes: Qupid, Earrings: J.Crew (old, but similar here), Bracelets: David Yurman

I’m an absolute sucker for a good party dress. Taffeta automatically makes me feel a little fancier and I love how this skirt keeps its shape while you wear it. I bought these shoes a while back (mostly because I loved the bow on the back of them) but hadn’t found the perfect outfit to pair them with, until now. The little mary jane strap on them makes them super easy to walk in and very comfortable. Now go get yourself a  super fabulous party dress (p.s. this one comes in multiple colors) and a glass of eggnog!

9 Jumpsuits to make you Jump

I’ve had my eye on jumpsuits for a while, but wasn’t sure I could pull one off. I had tried on a few this past summer, but I didn’t fall in love with a single one. It wasn’t until my bestie Nicole convinced me to give them another go recently (side note: she’s also the one that convinced me I could wear skinny jeans with flats or heels and that my butt didn’t look disproportionate when I did it.) I bought this one and from the moment I put it on I didn’t want to take it off! I absolutely LOVE it (you’ll be seeing it on here soon and definitely a few times on my instagram for my upcoming trips.) For me the biggest thing was making sure it hit at my natural waist so I had a little shape. I really think that jumpsuits could become a staple in my wardrobe- and they should in yours too!

I picked out 9 favorites (including the one I purchased but in blush):

5 Holiday Recipes to Try

The best part about the holidays is always the food. My brother and I always helped my mom in the kitchen growing up. We were always the professional taste testers and would take turns pouring in different ingredients into whatever we were making. (Okay, usually it was chocolate chip cookies because that was our favorite, but we are well versed in many holiday recipes.) As we grew up, things didn’t change much. We actually both enjoy baking and cooking, and thanks to my mom, we aren’t half bad at it either. I went through and found 5 holiday recipes I wanted to try this year, and these were the ones that had my mouth watering:

Chocolate Kiss Cookies

Chocolate Kiss Powder Puff Cookies

Pull Apart Cheesy Bread

Cheese and Garlic Pull Apart Bread

Crispy Parmesan Sweet Potato Crisps

Crispy Parmesan-Rosemary Sweet Potato Stacks

Sugar Cookies

Peppermint Candy Sugar Cookies

Apple Pie Cups

Apple Pie Cups with Cinnamon Streusel Topping

Which one are you going to try for your holiday meals?
