All I Want to Wear for Christmas

So lookit. It’s been a long time. I get that you’re probably wondering if I’ve crawled into a cave with Channing Tatum, but the truth is, he’s married. I know you don’t want to hear excuses, but I wrapped up my 7 year corporate career, took some time to smell the hydrangeas, discovered a few new things about myself, and slept. A lot. Or slept-walked through the shoe department at Holt Renfrew, but listen: I’m back.

And I feel amazing.

For those of you that loyally read this mess, it’s true that this time of year makes me giddy as hell. I don’t know if its the pretty little flakes falling outside my window, perhaps its the catchy jingle with Mariah Carey and Jimmy Fallon that’s lighting up my iPod, or the excitement of dressing a little glamorous and wearing sequins and Ruby Woo to all the holiday parties? Whatever it is, can you blame me, It’s such a peaceful, sparkly, cheerful time of year!

As I sit here tapping my sequin slippers to “All I want for Christmas” I want to share with you a little compilation of “All I want to wear for Christmas”. Warning: textured tights, sparkly shoes, sequin trimmed blazer, and gold ahead – might cause rapid heart beat, excessive smiling and holiday fever.

Sometimes you just need to stop and smell the hydrangeas, slip into something sequin and shake your little a*s to some Christmas tunes to get in the spirit.

Sleeping Beauty

Something about the crisp air and fall like temps that make me want to stay under my duvet and work from my home office….

Or maybe build a bed in my office?

My new uniform

Friday.  This means two things to me,  it’s officially heels off and cocktail time (at the end of my work day of course) and I get to dress “casual smart” for work.  Translation? I can wear anything denim on the bottom sprinkled with business casual on top.  My kind of outfit.

Last night I went shopping for a white boyfriend blazer.  I wanted to transition from a black to white blazer to update my wardrobe and help with those “I wish I had a little _____ to throw over my dress or jeans” days. 

I was on the hunt.  I had to score the perfect white blazer so the outfit impending in my brain could materialize for my “casual smart” Friday look, without looking too Miami Vice or Thriller. 

After hours of strolling around the mall and countless mini change-room fashion shows I decided to go with a classic from Banana Republic.  Perfect cut, super sophisticated and fits me well.

I’m making the blazer my official uniform, I’m going to make it my thing, you know.  Kind of like how Beyonce always rocks a body suit on stage.

 

 

And you thought uniforms were only for private school and officers.

Happy Friday!
