As the weather grows colder and the nights grow darker, the holiday season is beginning to shine through. Eggnog is pushing pumpkin spice out of our coffee cups, fuzzy boots are kicking out our fall shoes, and the colour red is cropping up faster than the snow can fall to cover it. And with this holiday spirit comes the holiday parties – they’re already beginning!
Of all the party seasons of the year, the winter holiday has to be my favourite. I love a reason to add sparkle and shine to my outfits, and any reason to wear such a luscious colour as red. For my first party of the holiday season, I wore my red Badgley Mischka dress and Michael Kors nude pumps. This is one of my favourite holiday party outfits because it flows so elegantly and feels like it floats around my body. In the past I’ve worn this dress with silver heels to match the silver beading and embroidery around the bust, but this year I thought I’d use my elegant nude pumps to elongate my legs and really let the dress steal the show. With a simple heart necklace and a red purse, the focus is pulled right to the dress.
Taking these photos really got me excited for the festivities to come. I can’t wait to build gingerbread houses, go outdoor ice skating (Halifax’s Oval is so awesome!) and go home to see my family! What are you most excited for this holiday season?
