Plaid + Purple









[glasses: c/o lookmatic / top + shorts + jacket: zara / shoes: elizabeth & james / bag: rebecca minkoff /
bracelets: c/o wanderlust, sorrelli / ring: david yurman / tights: h&m]

Hope everyone is having an amazing holidays with friends and family! Santa brought me the flu this year for Christmas so I have been home in bed drowning myself with tea and vitamin C. Before I got sick, I put together this look with Lookmatic to share more holiday dressing with you. I have been gravitating to leathers and blacks but wanted to add a little festive spin to these basics. I paired this plaid top and bright purple shoes for a fun pop of color. I mean, what is sexier for a holiday party than a sky high purple heel? I rest my case.

As we are moving toward the New Year, I just want to say, from the bottom of my heart, thank you for your continued support, love, interaction and excitement for the things I do here on the blog. It’s truly a labor of love and I am so happy to be able to share it with all of you.
