Holiday and NYE Options

To say 2016 flew by would still be an understatement. I mean, it really zoomed. I'm not even 100% sure what I'm doing for New Year's Eve yet this year, but I'm planning on snagging some sort of snazzy sequin (or velvet) number to have on-hand for the occasion. Last year was fairly mellow with bar-hopping in San Francisco, but I still wore a sequin tee! I found a couple similar ones this year from ASOS and J.Crew Factory. I also found a TON of amazing dresses—the kind that make me want to actually dress up. I'm just slightly obsessed with sequin dresses and velvet and rounding up all of my faves below.

I hope you all enjoyed your Thanksgiving! I spent the day with family—my mom and I did our annual walk with the pups—and of course, enjoyed the Thanksgiving feast. Honestly, food is always my favorite. After family...

Who's heading out to Black Friday shop? If you're smart, you're set up at your computer snagging all the deals in the comfort of your home—and pj's! I like to do the majority of my shopping on sale, which is why I'm such a fan of these yearly events. If you're looking for some great deals to shop for yourself (or gifts!) for the holidays, read on! I already grabbed this Rebecca Minkoff bag and this Rebecca Minkoff bag from Shopbop. Another fave on sale is my cashmere sweater I snagged during Black Friday last year. It comes in about 15 colors and is on sale for just $55!

You guys, I'm totally geeking out right now because I took blog photos with a real live professional photographer. Not to discount my mom, sister, cousin, dad, brother, brother-in-law and countless friends who have taken my blog photos, but like—woah. Once you go professional-photog-who-knows-what-they're-doing...

I am thrilled with these photos from my shoot with Baley Marie Photography. If you're in the San Francisco Bay Area (or Utah!), I highly recommend her. She's super talented and actually the sweetest and I really didn't have to do anything but stand there. Ha! My point—I felt comfortable and she knew exactly what she was doing. It's crazy (or maybe not) that it's taken me over two years to shoot with a professional, but I'm so happy with the results. 

And another thing I'm happy with? My blog re-design! Again, another thing that took me over two years to do, but it's the first time I've actually been happy with the appearance and am so happy I took the plunge with By Stina Faye. Another really talented and sweet #girlboss, she totally took my inspirations and love of neutrals (oh hey, camel links) to deliver a classic and easy-to-navigate design that meets all my expectations and then some. 

Moving on to the outfit. I've always been a big fan of Amour Vert not only for their style essentials but for the brand itself. They're all about sustainability and the name actually translates to Green Love—so cute and a great thing to think back to. 

Their silk blouse is actually perfect. A timeless silhouette in the perfect fall hue—wear it for work, play and holiday! I love it dressed down slightly with black distressed skinnies. Leopard flats would be perfect here, but I also love the gray booties for a bit of lightness with the darker hues.

This general combo is my day-to-night go-to. Jeans + top + a cool jacket and booties tossed on for night. You could also layer it under a blazer or tuck into a pencil skirt for work. Add a sparkly statement necklace for an easy holiday ensemble.
