My final holiday look is the most Christmassy of them all. In honor of the big day, I'm going all out in red, pearls, and just a hint of leopard for good measure.
Who can resist a red dress on Christmas? It's traditional yes, but I made it my own by adding loads of jewelry and fierce booties. I love getting into the holiday spirit and what better way to show your Christmas cheer than wearing the merriest color of them all?
This necklace is bold and glamorous, the perfect accessory for this magical holiday. Plus it dresses up my solid ensemble and adds major interest (not to mention charm) to my look.
A touch of fun print, like leopard, is exactly what this outfit needed for a finishing touch; it's striking and a bit unexpected.
These black calf-hair booties are a bit edgier than your traditional pump. Since I'm wearing an all-lace dress, I opted for modern footwear that takes my look from classically sweet to more rocker chic.
A red lip in the same hue as my dress makes a festively elegant statement.

Instead of snow this year we're getting rain. In fact, during this photoshoot it was raining steadily. I had to brave the elements and shed my umbrella, all for the love of blogging. But hey, aside from some frizzy hairs, you can't even tell that it was raining outside! And on the bright side it was nearly 60 degrees so I was far from chilly.
I hope everyone has a beautiful Christmas filled with joy, loved ones, and laughter. As I write this I'm packing my suitcase for a much needed four days back at home with the family. Merry Christmas to all!
