Holiday Party Edit: Metallic Pleated Skirt & Tiered Ruffle Sweater

With Thanksgiving officially behind us, it’s now one of my favorite seasons of the year: Holiday Party Season! I love this time of year because it’s totally okay to wear all things sparkly and shiny. I have six holiday parties over the next two weeks, and I plan to repeat-wear the below outfit to a few of them. I adore this pleated metallic (trend alert) Rebecca Taylor skirt, and dove gray ruffle sleeve Endless Rose sweater (from two years ago). I completed the look with a red lip- perfect for holiday parties (or any time of year!) and my favorite ankle strap PVC heels. This look is conservative and would also be perfect for a work holiday party!

Who else is excited for the holidays?!

Yellow Floral Halter Dress and Tri-Strap Heels

I love a classic summer sundress, and between the halter strings, tie at the bust, midi length, and floral print on this one it had me swooning! Sundresses are easy to transition into fall by layering with a jean jacket or leather jacket (coming soon!) This dress will pair nicely with many different shoe options depending on the season or occasion: a block heeled sandal for a wedding guest attire look, low booties for a fall casual look, or these faux patent leather heels with three straps for a glam look!

Thanks to my friend Nicky for taking these pictures around the West Village. It almost looks like I live in the brownstone, right?!

France Part 1, Provence: One-Shoulder Bow Detailed Striped Cotton Dress

Last Sunday I returned from an incredible nearly 2 week vacation in France! I met one of my best friends, Gwen, in Aix-en-Provence, and we road-tripped through the south. She was the photographer for all of these pics (thanks Gwen!) When I saw this one-shoulder swingy cotton dress, it screamed “Provence” to me! I love the striped pattern and the subtle bow detail on the shoulder. I am very into tea length dresses (trend alert!) this season. I completed the look with my favorite lace up espadrilles (they are 12 years old, from Banana Republic!), a red lip, dainty gold rings, and cat-eye sunglasses.

Aix-en-Provence was so charming, and one of my favorite places we visited. The lavendar fields also had me feeling like I was in The Sound of Music!
