Greetings from South Carolina! The corgis and I are enjoying a wonderful start to Thanksgiving down south soaking up all the wet but gloriously fresh fall weather. When Thanksgiving time rolls around I am all about earth tones, and gain infinite outfit inspiration from the bright falling leaves and warm autumnal light and landscape. My look takes it's cue from the surroundings: deep greens, rich browns, creams, and olives all work together to create warm texture and intrigue and with a bright pop of orange here and there the look is immediately field-friendly. It's southern comfy camouflage and perfect for a family walk, a day at the mall, or a casual Thanksgiving feast. Shop the look bellow and I hope  you enjoy my pictures from our walk in the woods...

Sienna Saturday: The New Hot Holiday Red













Port Wine Leather Skirt, Raoul *on sale // Sienna Silk Drop Blouse, DVF, similar & similar // Burgundy Heels, Zara, similar // Navaho Poncho Wrap, Met Museum Store // Red Crystal Clutch and Shades, Aldo // Necklace, Vintage // Lips, L"Oreal Paris Colour Riche Extrodinaire in #304 "Ruby Opera" // Nails, "Head Mistress" by Essie Polish

There is nothing more striking than a woman in red... And when it comes to holiday dressing this season's new hot holiday red is a luscious wine toned hue that evokes instant glamour and classic elegance. A burnt sienna leather skirt or a burgundy blouse can take your ensemble from holiday fun to truly holiday fabulous. And if the cabernet color palette strikes outside your comfort zone, try finding a merlot toned accessory to amp up your look. I love a great wine tone patent leather stiletto, and always have a pair on hand when I travel throughout the fall and holiday months as they pair so easily with camel, beige, black, navy, and pop beautifully off of a winter white or cream. I love this silhouette and shade from Topshop's collection (they are almost identical to the Zara pair I am wearing above). And if you're feeling more adventurous try a "sparkling wine" with your holiday look by grabbing this amazingly affordable and fun clutch from Aldo. Happy holiday shopping and cheers to finding that hot new holiday red just right for you!

Holiday Spirit Leather Skirt, Black Booties and Fur Boa













Black Leather Skirt, Zara // Black Booties, Altuzarra for Target *on Sale // Black Chiffon Blouse, ASOS // Fox Fur Collar Scarf, Theory, similar // Wide Buckle Belt, Vintage // Ring, Mango // Drop Earrings, Aldo & similar // Purse, Celine // Nails, "Fishnet Stockings" by Essie Polish // Lips, YSL Rouge Pur Couture Mat Lip, #203 Rouge Rock

Nothing signals the start of haute holiday fashion more than a textured black ensemble. Mixing sheen and shine with soft furs, skins, and chiffons gives excitement and intrigue to a dramatic single tone outfit. To make this monotone look less minimal and more merry, opt to accessorize with only a few bright but bold gold touches, keeping the look classic, glamorous, and girly. Add a hint of glitter in your eye shadow or in a fun cocktail ring, and go for classic red nails and lips. Try giving your midi skirt an edge of sophistication by testing out an ankle boot. I am obsessed with these Altazurra for Target booties I picked, that you can nab for 50% if you are quick- they are a true steal and super comfy, to boot... Lastly, add a soft curl or wave to your hair that compliment the various textures throughout your look by sending your eye cascading along the fabric lines. This look will absolutely alert everyone that you've got this season's style under high power control. Work it girl.

Today I've teamed up with Modcloth to bring you my favorite holiday layering sets from their incredible selection of fun, festive, and affordable clothing and accessories! As the chilly air sets in fall into holiday dressing becomes all about layering. The art of layering can at times seem daunting, I admit, but it always helps me to look at layers as winter accessorizing. If I am keeping my outfit base monotone, say all black or neutrals, I know I need a piece that adds either a pop of color, a definitive texture, sparkle, glitter, leather, or a print pattern to make my look come alive. Waking up your look through layering is truly how you develop your own personal style and what better time to hone and show off your style than throughout the holidays?
