Have That 2nd Helping, Sista!

Gold Chevron Choker /Dark jean leggings by Express (50% OFF) / V-neck top with Drawstrings H&M

 

I’ll keep it short because I know you’re crazy busy getting ready for Thanksgiving! Just a reminder that we don’t have to wear our frumpy sweats or “fat pants” tomorrow. Go ahead and have that 2nd helping, sista! I know I will be having a few helpings of green bean casserole myself.

Keep it comfy, yet stylish with a fun top and the perfect stretchy high-waisted jeans. (Hallelujah- they don’t cut into that little spot under your belly button!!) If you follow me on my Instagram stories, you know I’m obsessed with the dramatic sleeve this season. Loving this striped blouse with tie front detail and zipper sleeve.

 

 

Enjoy making magical moments with those you love.
Giving thanks for YOU!

 

MIX & MINGLE LIKE A PRO: Common Mistakes Women Make At Holiday Parties by Guest Blogger Tina Hamilton

The Most Common Mistakes Women Make at Holiday Parties1

The holiday season is nearing fast, which can send many women into a sense of panic. There are a lot of things to do before the holiday season is over, from buying presents to securing travel plans, the holidays can be a hectic time for any woman. One of the things that women often stress about the most is attending their holiday parties.

Holiday parties are meant to bring people together to celebrate, but often women create a lot of anxiety around these events. From finding the right thing to wear to deciding what to bring to even deciding how long to be at a party, there are a lot of little details that women feel the need to work out before the day of the holiday party. Most importantly, women should let themselves have fun at their holiday party. However, there are a few simple rules that women should follow to ensure that their holiday parties are a success.

Here are some of the most common mistakes women make at holiday parties:

Wearing something too sexy to an office party

Office parties can be a little confusing for women to dress for. Women can get confused between dressing work appropriate and dressing for a party. This is a balance that is not always easy to find. So many women just let loose and wear what they would wear to a club. Women have to remember that even though it is a party, it is in a workplace setting, so the attire should be festive, but still work appropriate.

Relying too much on the LBD

A good LBD, or little black dress, is always a great option for any special occasion. A LBD that makes a women feel beautiful and confident is always a good choice, but women should not let it be their only fashion statement. Holiday parties are about sparkle and fun, so a woman’s outfit should reflect that. Women can add some statement jewelry or a bright handbag to their LBD for a more festive look.

Spending too much time at the bar

Drinking is a part of almost any holiday party, and there is nothing wrong with a woman having a few cocktails to celebrate, but they should be enjoyed in moderation. There is nothing worse than being the annoying woman at a party who has had one too many drinks. Women should limit themselves and have a glass of water after each drink.

Doubling up on gifts

Many women make the mistake of combining birthday, anniversary or even wedding gifts with holiday gifts. Women should instead give appropriate groomsmen gifts and birthday gifts at the appropriate time, and give a new gift for the holiday party. Each gift may need to be smaller or less expensive because of this, but the gesture will mean a lot more to the recipient.

Spending too much time with one group of people

Women are often time invited to holiday parties where they might not know everyone, or even very many people. This can be uncomfortable and nerve-racking for any woman (avoid the excessive drinking here!) and she might want to just stick around the people that she knows. Holidays are meant for gathering and mingling, and holiday parties can be the perfect opportunity to meet new people and network. Women should step outside their comfort zone and talk to some new people at their holiday parties, they might just get a great opportunity or new friendship out of it!

Inviting guests who were not invited by the host

Women want to have their ‘entourage’ with them as they head to their holiday parties. This may seem harmless, but it can be a big issue for the host if a woman brings other people who were not invited to the party. Women should put themselves in the position of the host and see if they would do the same thing. The host might not have enough food, drinks or even space for extra people, so women should leave the entourage at home and enjoy the people already at the party, taking advice from the previous point.

All of these tips can help any woman have a fantastic time at all of her holiday parties this year and make her a total pro at mixing & mingling!

HOLIDAY HOTSTUFF

Hello Hotstuff!

With the hurricane devastation and important presidential election at the forefront of our minds, I have not felt it was appropriate to share any style + fashion tips.  It just seemed superficial in the grand scheme of things.  That’s the main reason I have kept the past few blog posts in the vein of inspiration, in case you were wondering:-)  I welcome a bit of distraction now that the election is over!  Who else had a headache all day yesterday?  Ok, that’s all I’m going to say about that.  There is enough discussion on TV and social media.  

Let’s get back to talking about clothes, shoes and sparkly things!  Thanksgiving is in a few weeks and that means all the holiday parties are right around the corner! Are you already shopping for that perfect cocktail dress?  Here’s a few tips to remember when shopping…  I receive emails and comments all the time about what type and color of shoes to wear with cocktail dresses.  You can never go wrong with a METALLIC PEEP-TOE PUMP!  This is a ‘must have’ staple we should all have in our closets.  This pump is sleek + chic without all the bells, whistles, straps and blisters.  The peep-toe is fun + flirty and you can rock them with slacks and skinny jeans as well.  It’s really THE perfect shoe, in my opinion.  Also, a big question I get all the time is what type of jacket to wear with cocktail dresses so I am reposting my webisode from last year.  Lastly, never ever ever forget a sparkly cocktail ring!  It’s the cherry-on-top of your holiday outfit!

 

Remember to upload a photo of yourself to Facebook rockin’ your hot holiday outfit this season!

Please share the beauty, style + inspiration with your friends.  We want everyone to look fierce + fabulous for the holidays!

With Love + Light,

Tiff
