The Perfect Festive Holiday Look!

It is that time of year when I have so many parties it is hard to keep track. For me, I am usually running from one party to the next, so I like to find a holiday look that works for both the day and night. This week alone, I have a work party in the day, a fun holiday cookie event in the evening, and the annual holiday walk and fireworks show in Manhattan Beach.

These pants from Lulu’s are perfect for the holidays. Not only do they scream fun with their wide legs and fun slits, the color is spot on for any celebration. Not only will they go great with a chunky sweater, but I will wear them with a black pump and a fun bodysuit for a fancier event.

Steve Madden velvet boot

Can we say that velvet is the trend of the season? I took one look at these Steve Madden boots and new that I had to have them. I have always been a fan of over the knee boots in the winter. The texture of these makes the whole look feel even more festive.


I tend to live in chunky sweaters during the winter. Every year Express has some of my favorites. I love the color of this one, and as the weather transitions it will look gorgeous with a pair of white jeans. Mixing up the light rose with the darker burgundy makes the look pop even more.

Santa Barbara wine tasting and shopping in the fall

Fall weekend getaway to Santa Barbara wine tasting and shopping

One of the best things about fall in California, is that the weather is just perfect for a fall weekend getaway up the coast. Every year we take a quick trip to Santa Barbara for a fun day of wine tasting and shopping.

I love a long maxi dress this time of year, and this one from A.L.C is just perfect. The cut out details are on trend, and the florals add a feminine touch.

When I travel, I always bring a fun hat, and my favorite line right now is KIN / K. Their felt hats are a mix of modern luxury with a touch of cool girl vibes.

The Funk Zone is our favorite place to go, as many wineries have tasting rooms in this one mile area. The day always begins with lunch and a coffee at The Lucky Penny. Their pizzas are amazing.

As the sun begins to set, we generally head back to my favorite hotel, The Fess Parker. It is close to downtown and easy to get around. Dinner is always the same. We love the new on trend spot The Lark, as it is trendy and cool.

When Sunday rolls around, we always take a quick trip to Montecito for shopping. One of my favorite stores in California is Jenni Kayne. After that it is time to hit the road down the coast of Malibu to stop for lunch at  the Reel Inn to complete our trip.
