It's hard to believe that this Christmas was in the 50's, totally felt like the beginning of Fall not full on Winter. Friday was such a beautiful sunny day I took the opportunity to meet up with my boo Georgette, who was in town spending the holidays with her fam, and had lunch. Now you can never be too safe when it comes to NYC weather so it's always good to dress in layers so you can add or remove according to the temps.

For most folks NYE is a day to get super dressed up in something sparkly, glittery and eye catching. As much as I enjoy getting dressed up, I usually spend that day inside with family and friends. So I don't go crazy looking for that perfect NYE dress that I'll only wear once. I rather find something simple that I can wear again but still has a NYE flair to it. So when I saw this sweater at H&M, I knew it would be perfect for bringing in the new year. Do note that his sweater is from their straight sizes but runs big. I initially purchased an XL and it was way to big to go with a skirt so I ended up get anther one in medium and it fit perfect!

As we get closer to Christmas and NYE, there's the inevitable panic to have your outfits set and ready for these days. I normally never have an idea what I'm going to wear for either, so I was very glad when the folks at Jessica London reached out to me to be a part of the "Shine on" theme highlighting fashions for the holidays. I wanted to go with an outfit that I could easily wear for either Christmas or NYE. I also knew that I wanted the outfit to be festive so I chose their Bejewled Top and Sequin Skirt. At first I didn't think the two would look good together but once I had them on, I was happy with the look. It was sparkly and glittery, I mean who doesn't love that?? The bold color of the sequin skirt and the sparkly embellishments on the top gave the outfit a whimsical but sexy look. To add to the glam I wore my shimmery silver ankle strap heels and black bag.

Now that the holidays are in full swing, I'm sure there's been quite a few invites to parties. And the inevitable question "What am I going to wear?" So my girl Georgette from Grown and Curvy Woman came up with the awesome idea of doing a collaboration with her, Jeniese from The Jenesaisquoi and Carletta from A Loved Life on holiday style for different Christmas dinner destinations. I got "Christmas Dinner at Grandma's House" Now I didn't grow up with grandparents but my Mom was the best grandma anyone could ever have and the most stylish too. So I put together an outfit that was conservative but chic as well as Grandma approved lol.

Normally for Thanksgiving, I don't worry too much about what I'm going to wear. I'm usually with family and it's not really a big deal to get dressed up, we're just sitting around eating, talking and watching TV. But this year I decided to change that and actually put some effort into my outfit. I may have been the only one in my family who kinda dressed but it's all good lol.
