I’ll admit, I don’t usually have many parties to attend during the Christmas season, and that probably has to do with my environment. I feel like I haven’t made it to adulthood yet, and adults are the ones who have the parties, right? While I try to navigate my “post-grad, pre-grown-up” life I will fake it until I make it - because that’s what I do best. Even though my friends and I live far from each other we found the perfect time to have a holiday party. Classy Christmas, meaning you have to dress up. I, of course, went too fancy, but as Oscar Wilde said, “you can never be overdressed or overeducated.” And since I would classify my education level as ‘under-qualified’ I should at least look good. Christmas doesn’t know how extra I can be.

You can never be overdressed or overeducated.
— Oscar Wilde

I’ve put together some ideas for outfits and accessories that I think are perfect for the holidays. If your goal is to look like you’re going to a 1920’s gala then I got you covered. I am the queen of good outfit intentions but terrible at reading the room.


I hope you enjoy your holidays! I am ready to tackle the new year and excited about what’s to come.



Has anyone ever gone through a style transformation? I feel as though my style choices have changed dramatically in the last few months. Maybe the new me doesn't seem obviously different to the people who know me personally, but I've taken a brand new approach on the way I dress myself. 

Within this little style identity crisis I've lost my motivation to put on jeans. I'm not giving up on them entirely, but I definitely am taking a much needed break. Because I still need to wear some sort of pant, (I'm definitely not a skirt person) all I've wanted to do is buy trousers in every color. There is something about trousers that take your outfit to the next level, from casual to put-together. And it's not just about being less restricted, and trust me I am much more comfortable, but it's also about exploring fashion and how I can push my style further.

In denim I feel comfortable, but in trousers I feel confident. Is there anything in your wardrobe that makes you feel confident?
