For Every Occasion

I don't know about you guys, but at our house Christmas Day is a little more of a casual event. We cross our fingers it's cold enough for a fire and spend time watching movies or just talking. This look is still trendy and comfy while not yet venturing into the full-on sweatpants and hoodie zone.

December naturally brings with it numerous holiday parties. To me, there's no better time to play up the glitz, be a little edgy and go all out. I think silver and gold are perfect shades to celebrate the wintry festivities.
