I haven’t done a winter white jean look lately so I thought it was time! It is one of my favorite ways to think outside the box for winter dressing. Definitely a nice little break from all the black and dark colors we tend to wear in fall and winter. Personally I love to rock white jeans in winter on especially sunny days that are clear and crisp and a little warmer.

In other news, I have become obsessed with my Blair Ritchey mini lulu clutch! I love keeping things simple and just keeping my credit card, keys and phone in the mini lulu for running errands. It is the perfect size.

We are back with week 3 of Holiday East vs. West Style! This week’s theme is hosting! With the holidays in full swing, I’m sure we’re all doing a little bit of hosting! I’m one of those people that loves to host, but I also let it totally stress me out! I’m learning more and more to try to just go with the flow – everything doesn’t have to be pinterest perfect. But yes, I’d prefer it to be. Ha! :-)

I thought this dress would be perfect for hosting a holiday brunch. Last year we had family over for a big brunch a week before Christmas. I was hoping to do the same thing this year but we still have to nail down a date that works for everyone! (It might have to end up being after Christmas!) I think hosting a brunch is a nice way to just dip your toe into the hosting game – less pressure than a Christmas Day lunch or Christmas Eve dinner, right? Since many breakfast casseroles and dishes are easy to make the night before and just pop in the oven the day of, I ended up doing several big dishes last year and just made the bacon and other sides the morning of the brunch. It was actually easier than I thought! And the plus side? Yummy breakfast leftovers for the next few days!

Thank you for taking the time to stop by and read today’s post! Next week is the last edition of East vs. West Holiday edition!!

Holiday Party Ready

Dress: Kate Spade (rent it here, or buy it here), Tights: Commando, Heels: Valentino a few seasons ago – very similar, Earrings: Kendra Scott 

Just a little holiday party look for your Monday! Hope everyone had a fabulous weekend! Stay tuned for a brand new East vs. West Style post tomorrow.

Thank you for stopping by! xo

Sizing Note: I’m 5’9″ so this ran a short for me! I think this dress would be best on someone not quite so tall, but still loved this look.

Thank you to the 1842 Inn for letting me take these pictures in your courtyard.

We are back for week 2 of East West style! Today’s holiday theme is shopping! And no, I would positively not wear heels while shopping, much less while doing a long day of holiday shopping. But I had a vision for this coat that called for these silver pumps.  You can’t mess with the vision!  Besides, 90% of my shopping takes place right here on the interwebs, while wearing gym clothes. I don’t think we were going for that so I improvised. :)

But back to the coat. I’m pretty obsessed with this plaid number. I’ve been wanting to swap up my outerwear a bit, and this guy fit the bill perfectly. Would you rock a plaid coat? What do you wear to get your holiday shopping done?

Thank you for stopping by today! xo

Hello Monday! Today I am wearing my newest holiday dress obsession, this metallic number from Bevello at Shops Around Lenox. I fell in love with the fabulous art deco print – so perfect for a little holiday glamour! I love that it has both silver and gold threading so you can mix and match it with whatever accessories you want.  This guy is definitely going in my bag for our New Year’s Eve trip to Vegas as well. It will be perfect for a cirque show and dinner. Bevello actually has several goodies right now that will be perfect for all your holiday (and New Year’s!) needs. I picked up a fabulous black jumpsuit while I was there as well that had the perfect fit. I already have several outfits planned for it, one of which will be coming to the blog soon so stay tuned for that!

If you haven’t shopped at The Shops Around Lenox before, make sure to head on over there ASAP! It is right across from Lenox Mall, and has everything you need! There is tons of parking so I never have an issues popping right in wherever I need to go. Usually I have to stop at Bevello, fab’rik and Tootsies, and I love grabbing fresh juice at Roots. They even have seasonal juices which is cool!  Swinging by Kendra Scott is of course a MUST. You may remember this is where Emily and I had our event in November!

I always have an ongoing wish list at all of these places in my head, but luckily now you can fill out an actual wish list for your man! On Wednesday, December 10th from 5-8pm, The Shops Around Lenox is having a special Gentleman’s Evening of Holiday Shopping! There will be free beer, whiskey tastings, food, gift wrapping, personal shoppers and more! I’ve already filled out my wish lists and you should too!  Here is the official invite:

Shops Around Lenox Gentleman's Evening of Holiday Shopping

You can also RSVP to the facebook event here.

Thank you for stopping by today!
