The Right... Party Frock

Guys.  The holiday party circuit is almost over.  Insert tears of joy and tears of sadness.  I think I've said this already but I felt like this holiday season was the craziest one yet (mostly because I had more events in my personal life than in my work life, which is hard to beat sometimes!).  I enjoyed every bit of it and I still have a couple of brunches/secret santa exchanges/white elephant parties to attend.  I'm headed home for the holidays tomorrow for the week (with a slight detour to SF for the weekend - #happydance) and I'll be posting next week but might be taking the next week off.  Sometimes a girl's just gotta re-group. 
 
Today's party frock is brough to you by LuLu's who never disappoints in the party dress department.  I love how festive it is without being so literal, and the back of this dress drapes so nicely.

The Right... Postcards from Italy Pt. 2

Vinci was the cutest little town
I promise I'm working on a full Euro trip recap (including the places I ate!) but time has not been on my side lately so for now my postcards will have to do!

Obviously.  The leaning tower - I did a couple super touristy photos, coming to instagram soon!

Day two in Florence was actually a group day trip through Tuscany - we hit up Pisa, Vinci, Siena and San Gimignano.  It was a long day but really exciting to be able to see so much of the area - and since it was dark when we go to San Gimignano I am definitely putting it back on my list of places to visit again!

East vs. West: Holiday Hostess

I definitely love entertaining, especially during the holidays, but I have to admit that I haven't done much of it since moving to NYC.  The space makes it challenging and the hectic schedule also makes it challenging so today I had to pretend a little.  Luckily I feel like a "holiday hostess" outfit can also double as a "holiday guest" outfit so you're also seeing the outfit I wore at Jackie's holiday party.
Oh and before I forget, let's take a moment to recognize this leather jacket and these pumps.  It's really awesome getting to work with amazing brands on this blog and getting to add quality items to my closet.  I think it's safe to say I have two new obsessions!
Check out the rest of the East vs. West girl's hostess outfits!

Full disclosure: I'm not wearing tights and I was regretting it for sure - it was frigid when we shot these!

The Right... Gold Party Skirt

IMG_9324

You definitely saw this skirt during the fall East vs. West collab and now it's back.  When I first tried it on I wondered when I would wear it and it's definitely been a go to for parties this fall/holiday season!  In fact I'm wearing a winterized version to a party tonight (I just added tights and I'm ready to go!).  I'm slowly losing track of how many holiday parties and festivities I've been partaking in - we're on the home stretch though.  And I leave for a weekend in SF and then a week at home next Friday.  I cannot.wait.

East vs. West: Holiday Shopping

I'm super excited about today's post because as much as I love getting all dressed up for the holidays, a casual outfit here and there is nice.  And I feel like we can't forget about holiday shopping because that's definitely one of the most important things to do this month.  I've found that running around in easy layers like a scarf, sweater dress, tights and boots makes it a) comfortable for shopping and b) easy to go from outside to inside (although sometimes I still struggle with the extreme temperature changes when walking indoors or outdoors).  What's your go-to holiday shopping look?  Be sure to check out how everyone else styled their looks!

Can we pause for a second and talk about these boots?  They're by Duo and they're super awesome because you pick your size AND your calf size.  Talk about a win-win for everyone (again, I've got some huge hams back there so I'm always on the hunt for stylish solutions to the problem!).
