Metallic midi skirt {Holiday outfits}

Last week was a flurry of holiday parties which means festive outfits are a must! I dragged Michael to two shopping parties – one at Cynthia Rowley and one hosted by Glossed & Found for T&J Designs (where I picked up the jeweled clutch shown here) – and then ended the week at a holiday disco party with my friends Bliss Weddings & Events.

The invitation called for sparkles or white but I had been dying to wear this ruby-colored, pleated midi skirt I had so I paired it with this white sequin top that night and then a black turtleneck the other day. If you know me, you know I love a good turtleneck and gosh darn it, I am happy they are back in style;)

Navy, Gold & Polka Dots Holiday Table

This year, I strayed away from traditional holiday colors and patterns to decorate my table in navy, gold and polka dots. Even though we have a small table to accommodate city living and may not host dinner parties for dozens, I still get great joy in pulling out our wedding china and dressing the table for a festive occasion.

When choosing our wedding china, I mixed and matched brands to add a fun pop of navy in the accent plate and to match the polka dot flutes we received as an engagement gift. Then, I added a polka dot table cloth and navy and white polka dot napkins. Gold chargers and gold pinecones complete the look. You could even tuck place cards into the gold pinecones for a larger party.

This Aztec Sweater Coat  has been on heavy rotation since Thanksgiving when I first wore it. In addition to it be warm and cozy, the color combination is easy to match with black and white which is a major portion of my wardrobe.

This is the first time I had ordered from that company and honestly was a little wary of “one size fits all” but it really doesn’t matter because it’s oversized. Plus, it is under $30 which is a major steal!
