This week I’ll be sharing holiday inspiration for every event on your calendar! Whether it’s a lunch date catching up with girlfriends, Christmas Eve Mass or a Holiday party, I have you covered!

Todays look is perfect for any of the above. Sara Campbell has an amazing holiday line out this year and I couldn’t get enough of this cream tweed coat {it’s so lightweight and perfect if you need to layer} and this silk blouse with lace collar and cuffs. You can find a retailer near you on Sara Campbell’s website but I’ve linked similar types at all price points below!

The Perfect Party Dress

Dress: French Connection {similar} / Tights: J. Crew / Pumps: Louboutin / Clutch: J. McLaughlin {similar}

If you’re headed to a Holiday party this season and don’t know what to wear, STOP looking! This is the perfect dress for any party this year {especially New Years!} I am in love with all its sparkle and fun flirty fit. I added a solid black tight to really make my dress stand out and it also doubles as a little warmth {because I know you’re not covering this sparkle up with a coat!} I added a champagne color clutch that reflects the dress and completed my look with an amazing pair of pumps.

Holiday Cheer

similar} / Bottoms: J. Crew / Pumps: Louboutin / Watch: MICHELE / Necklace: Kendra Scott / Photos: Jessica Edwards

We had such a fun time at Bluetique’s Holiday Wish List party last week that I just had to share some of the details! I was so reluctant to surrender my pumpkin spice lattes for peppermint mochas, but once I got the slightest taste of Christmas it was game over. I couldn’t wait to start decorating and the Holiday party gave me the perfect excuse to get into the spirit! I wore a silk Elizabeth McKay top with J. Crew’s Pixie Pant and loved the green hue of my top {it was perfectly festive!} I accessorized with classic pumps, my staple MICHELE watch and favorite Kendra Scott necklace. 

For bites we served homemade treats and they were so delicious! It really felt like a Christmas dessert spread your grandmother would serve! For cocktails we made Jingle Juice {Vodka, Sprite and Grenadine} along with white wine and added fun red ribbon straws to finish them off. We decorated with traditional cedar and pine garland but added a touch of the south with magnolia leaves, branches, and burlap decor. I’d love to hear how you’re decorating for the holidays and any tips you might have for making it painless {hint: I use staples and floral wire to secure garland to moulding and mantels!}

Showered With Love

One of my great friends found out she was pregnant a few months ago so before we moved I threw her a gender neutral baby shower! I decorated with blue, pink, grey and gold and used elephants as our theme. There’s nothing better than fresh cut flowers so I snipped a few from our yard and spread them around for decoration. A shower is always fun when you add a game and for ours you couldn’t say the  word “baby”. We used diaper pins as our tally and whoever ended up with the most pins went home with one of the hydrangea arrangements {it was a great hit!} I snagged the ribbon, giant balloons, and garland from Amazon and custom ordered the cake topper {which doubles as a nursery decoration} from Etsy. I served Rosé, sweet tea to drink, fruit salad, spanakopita, mozzarella & tomato skewers, pasteurized brie with grapes, Mediterranean purses for appetizers, and cream puffs with cake for dessert! We had the best girls night and are looking forward to welcoming Baby Flood into the world in November! Ps. She’s having a girl!!!
