My Style: Feeling Festive


Getting into the holiday mood is easy with the right dress and accessories.  If you're spending the holidays with family or friends, you might want to feel pretty but not overly dressy.  Here's how to style that perfect holiday look.  I started with this beautiful lace dress in burgundy.  Keeping the look sexy-yet-sweet, the sheer bodice is perfect for a scallop lace-trim bra and has a feminine soft bow closure with pointed collar.  


To keep warm on a winter's day or night out, I recommend this feather band, panama hat.  It's dressy enough for a holiday dinner but keeps this look from being too school-girl sweet.



Next, a little fringe is a must for the holidays.  This wine-colored clutch also comes with a shoulder strap for a cross-body styling if you prefer.  





These boots are great for special occasions in cold weather.  Combined with decorative, over-the-knee socks, you keep warm but yet dressy enough for a holiday gathering.




Last but not least, an amazing jacket finishes the styling.  This classic-cut, faux suede jacket has an open collar and soft, faux shearling lining.  It is one of the warmest jackets I own--so nice in this cold weather.  It was three degrees in Flagstaff, Arizona, earlier this morning.  BRRRRRRR!


I wish you the best holiday season ever.  Stay safe and warm and have an absolute blast!       
Xoxo, Shelly

    1. My camera is a Nikon D3200 and I usually use a 50mm lens. I really do experiment with shutter speed, F-stop, and ISO, but I've never met a digital photo that couldn't somehow be improved through some type of editing :)

  4. Agree with Jessica, your photos are so beautiful! Of course, your impeccable dress sense is a winner. In the last picture, you looked a little like Keira Knigthley. So pretty :)
