Holiday Parties, I’m Officially Ready For You.

And just like that the start of another Holiday season is upon us. There are two things that make me really excited about what’s to come over the next 30 days or so. Christmas trees and party dresses. They are both just so sparkly and pretty and make me want to spin in circles for hours on end. Unfortunately spinning in circles lost some of the appeal that it had as a child. Something to do with that “I want to throw up” feeling that settles in around age 24. Regardless, this weekend we were able to tackle two of the most exciting Holiday tasks. We officially have our tree up and my party dress is in hand. #booya.

So now I know what you are asking–how’d I know what to buy? Well friends let me fill you in a secret. Some call these magazines “something to look at when you’re bored” others (ie: myself) call these magazines “lifelines”. I’ll say it time and time again–my fashion sense is only as good as what others tell me. Without magazines like People StyleWatch and InStyle I would be in my husband’s pajama pants and Hello sweatshirt 24/7. I’d totally be down with that too don’t get me wrong but it’s a little awkward when you show up somewhere and others are dressed in sequins and stilettos and you’re standing there in drawstring pants and slippers. To avoid the aforementioned scenario, I headed off to Target–picked up both of these two magazines so I could learn a thing or two about what’s in this season, scored a $5 Target gift card in the process, and began shopping. 

Here’s the two things I chose to pay attention to.

Dresses. Big time in.
Whites. Way big time in.

Thankfully miss chic had just what I needed–a white dress that happened to be decked out in gold zippers and was perfectly form fitting (remind me to not eat four servings of mashed potatoes on Thursday) so that’s what I went with.

 dress (another great option is this one) // purse // heels

And just like that, I’m now in style for the season.

Make sure to head to your nearest Target, pick up both December issues of People StyleWatch and InStyle to get the $5 Target gift card, and then allow yourself to be inspired for the holiday season. You’ll be lookin’ fly in no time. 

What’s your favorite color to wear during the holiday season?
