Holiday Sparkle For Your Tresses

Thanksgiving is not really known for its sparkle -that’s much more of a Christmas or New Year’s Eve kind of thing-, but I recently discovered that  Free People has some truly stunning hair jewelry available this holiday season. I would be willing to don a turkey day tiara, perhaps starting a new trend. After all, it would be alliterative. Here are a few of my favorite pieces.

I think that a few of these, while gorgeous, are sedate enough to blend in at the dinner table. So what’ll be? Flowers? Geodes? Maybe a little of both?

Free People Does Weddings!!!

I’m happily married, and I never plan on donning a wedding gown EVER again, but I still gave a little squee of delight when I received an email from Free People introducing their new wedding line  Ever After. Lace and bows and billowy fabric, oh my!

I LOVE that these dresses still maintain the bohemian Free People aesthetic while still being undeniably wedding-y. I am a huge fan of people wearing whatever they want when they get married, but it should feel special. Fingers crossed, you only do this once. Side note: can we talk about how gorgeous the flower anklets in photo number 2 are? I may need to make some for myself and then find somewhere to wear them. Too much for the grocery store?


Feeling Breezy

One of the saddest things about living in Florida is how short spring is. We get maybe 4-5 weeks between Winter and Summer. All over social media people are posting beautiful fields of spring blossoms and boasting about busting out their open toed shoes, and we hit hot and muggy weeks ago. Fortunately, fashion is finally catching up with the weather, and I am loving the loose, breezy sundresses popping up everywhere. Usually I like garments with a bit more structure, but these dresses seem ideal for keeping cool while running around.

That lilac one in particular is really speaking to me; I already have the perfect pair of silver sandals to wear with it, and it seems a shame to let a perfectly good outfit idea go to waste. What items are you looking at adding to your spring wardrobe?

 

 


Getting Ready to Sparkle

We are quickly moving towards the more glamorous part of the holiday season. Halloween is fun, Thanksgiving is comfy casual, but Christmas & New Years? Those holiday parties usually require a little something special. Now these Party Dresses by Free People may not be the most budget friendly option, but you definitely won’t have to worry about showing up in the same dress as someone else. Glitzy, Glamorous and Gorgeous.

Serious eye candy, but I will most likely be adding something like this to my closet about the same time as start making enough to allow Andy to be a house husband. He has already promised that if I figure out how to make him a “kept man” he’ll cook, clean and work out until he gets ripped like Hugh Jackson was in the Xmen movies. A girl’s gotta dream big right?


November Free People Lookbook

I am kind of in love with the November Lookbook from Free People. The first skim went a little like this, “Want it, want it, need it, look at the beading!, want it…”, you get the idea. Andy just made non-committal noises and read his email. Some of the outfit combinations aren’t really my style, but I would really really like to own many of the individual pieces. My favorite is the skirt in the fourth photo (it also comes in olive green and black), closely followed by the dress in the fifth photo. Floaty layers and sparkles, go figure?

Now all I need is weather cool enough to necessitate layers, and one of those super cozy chunky knit sweaters.
