The holiday are most definitely here, and in an instant, they will be gone, so I'm wearing the hell out of all my favorite sparkly, festive, and holiday-hued things. This look encompasses three of the things you will most likely see me in for most of the year — something a little extra/wow factor article of clothing, hoop earrings and comfortable yet stylish flat shoes.

Something extra/wow factor — this festive dress is it! It's from Rent the Runway, and I wanted to wear it casually for daytime in a preppy way. Of course, I thought about layering it with a classic white button up and tie it with a bow, quite literally. The hue of the gold sequins are stunning and feel so regal. I say we push for sequins year-round. 

Hoop earrings — hands down almost every day I'm in a pair of hoops. I'm partial to thin, gold, medium to large hoops and Maison Miru are my absolute favorites right now. The MM team sent over a few packages my way this year and I'm so grateful to have encountered this brand, their jewelry is dainty, and works perfectly with most of my elaborate outfits, it never outshines and only compliments it.

Comfy and stylish flat shoes — If you live in a big city, you get why flat shoes are needed. But I don't want to ever do boring flat shoes; I rarely wear sneakers outside of the gym/runs. So when I heard about Arno Coop, honest fashion, direct from Italy, I was smitten, I mean, Italian leather speaks for itself but when you know the owners you feel especially proud of the collection and wear the hell out of it. These Chianti booties have made my last two weeks. The hue is a festive burgundy and works with most looks as you can tell especially the sparkle preppy look I'm donning above. :)

Berlin was one of the last cities we visited when we were in Europe. It was so different from all the other locations because it was freezing in comparison! Often wet and rainy, and definitely below the usual 60 we were accustomed to, but it was beautiful and historic, and when you are on vacation, life isn/t too bad! Here's to more of that.

Milano was without a doubt my favorite spot on last vacation's list. It was unexpected and perfect, from the food to the joie de vivre from the folks passing by, to the gorgeous architecture to the vibe. Let's just say it's a lifestyle in Milan, and I want in.

Red has always been a favorite around these parts, ESPECIALLY with the holiday season 'round the corner. I seem to want to wear all the cherry red colors now more than ever. In early October I wore this look in Spain when we were visiting San Sebastian — otherwise known as Basque country. 

What colors are you obsessed with right now?

Madrid was the first city we visited when we went away for three weeks in October and it was absolutely lovely. We experienced a warm spell and felt a lingering summer heat in the air and a carefree Spanish lifestyle all week we were there. The food and wine selection was delicious, the tapas lifestyle is one of my favorites and the live music was EVERYTHING. Madrid is one place we can absoultely see outselves moving to. How about you- if you could move anywhere where would you go?

This skirt is giving me all the extra fall feels. It really is perfect. The color, the excess in ruffles and length, and that dreamy mermaid fishtail silhouette! Pretty much all the reasons my husband thinks I overdress for all occasions. ;)

What do you ladies think? Too much or just right? If it's your cup of tea, it's on major sale right this way!
