Holiday Spirit

Last week I had a Christmas party with some of my friends. I wanted to bring a drink for the evening that was a bit lighter than the typical eggnog and spiked hot chocolate that seems to be popular. My friend and I came up with something that is light, refreshing but still festive!

Cranberry Lime Christmas Cocktail
1 part lime Vodka
2 parts Cranberry Lime Spiked Sparkling Seltzer
Lime Wedges

Mix Vodka and Sparkling Seltzer together and pour over ice! Squeeze in lime juice and garnish with lime wedges and cranberries.

Its simple but delicious and refreshing!

What are your favorite drinks this time of year?

Winter Blue

I had my first (and second) Christmas Party this weekend! The first one called for winter cocktail attire and I love any excuse to get dressed up! Last week I shared these picks for adding some sparkle to your holiday party attire. 

I bought this dress before Thanksgiving and knew I would have plenty of reasons to wear it over the Christmas season! It is different than my typical party dresses because I don't have many that are midi length. Midi is a classic look that works for so many events. This dress would be great for your work party, a wedding or anything else you need cocktail attire. 

The fabric of the dress is what makes it so festive. I've always thought navy is universally flattering on almost all skin tones and hair colors! The fabric has a shimmer to it that has several different colors of metallic thread woven thru it. Since it is navy and not red or green its Holiday appropriate but you can still wear it once the Christmas season is over!

Sparkle & Shine

1 - 2 - 3 - 4 - 5 - 6 - 7 - 8 - 9

This time of year seems to bring lots of celebrations, holiday parties, work parties, cocktails with friends etc! A bit of sparkle adds such a festive touch to any outfit. Whether your event is dressy or casual, I have pulled a few pieces that will have you in the Holiday Spirit.

I wore this sparkly top to celebrate my 30th birthday last month. I wore it with black denim and black heels for a night out with my girlfriends. It would be equally fun with a black skirt or distressed denim. 

This sparkly sweater is great for a more casual event that you still want a special outfit for. I also love this sparkly sweater! It would go equally well with denim or a skirt!

I recently purchased this dress and will be wearing it to a couple holiday parties I have coming up! The cut is so flattering and actually has several colors of sparkle woven into the fabric!

What sparkly pieces are you looking to add to your Holiday looks?
