Hello Monday: O Christmas Tree

Necklaces: CS Gems here and here (use code CARYLEE15 for 15% off) | Bag: Kate Spade (gifted) (budget option) | Vest: Express (option) | Dress: Bailey 44 (shop more Bailey 44 HERE) | Heels: SJP (other sizes and colors HERE)

Saturday was a such a fun day in blogging life! The gals at CS Gems arranged for the cutest photo shoot in the Central West End. The focus was around holiday style, New Year's Eve, and all the fun stuff in between. It was gorgeous and definitely got me just a little bit more into the holiday spirit! This was the first of three outfits I brought with me for the day. The Bailey 44 dress was one of my many Black Friday purchases, and I couldn't wait to slip this effortless piece on.




The dress really speaks for itself and doesn't need much else to it. I added some faux fur to make it a little more festive but cozy, and the glitter pouch, well, it goes with anything and everything!

Speaking of holiday spirit, yesterday the husband and I went on another little car cruise to check out Christmas lights. I don't know what it is, but I just LOVE looking at Christmas lights. It's easily one of my most favorite things to do around the holidays. I remember my parents used to pack us in the car and drive around this one neighborhood near our house and we would ooooh and ahhhh over the lights. Perhaps that's why I still enjoy it now as an adult! It's just such a happy time of year! 

I'll be sharing more from this photo shoot with CS Gems throughout the week!

  1. Your striped dress is lovely, what a great backdrop for the beautiful gold jewellery! :)

    You know I love that sparkle clutch too! Seeing the Christmas lights is one of our traditions as well, excited to take the toddler this year as he LOVES any kind of lights so he's sure to go nuts over Christmas ones!

    Thank you for the link up!
