Dressing up for Christmas is something I’ve loved to do since I was a little girl.
The whole family would dress up and head to my grandparent’s house for dinner, carols around Grandmother’s organ, and then a present-unwrapping session around a big fire in the living room. My sister and I would inevitably change into comfy pj’s as the night wore on, but we always started out dressed to the Christmas nines.
Keeping in tradition, I’ll start this Christmas Eve in a tweed plaid skirt, over-sized tuxedo jacket, and my new favorite boots. The skirt’s tweed is super thick, giving the piece some structure. A simple black tank and pair of tights tie everything in and allow the skirt + blazer to stand out. Final touches: a few gold bracelets, a gorgeous crystal statement necklace, and a bright red lip. Merry Christmas!
I’m new to the Rocksbox family, but have heard great things from friends + fellow bloggers.
Rocksbox is a jewelry subscription service. You take a style survey, which allows a stylist to curate a personalized 3-piece set for you (worth about $200). The set is yours on loan, free to wear as long as you like. What you want to keep, you purchase at a 20% discount; what you don’t, you send back to Rocksbox when you’re ready. And then boom! Another box is coming at ya.
Super cool idea. When the Rocksbox fam reached out with the opportunity to give the service a go, I was game. My first box came in the post packed with goodies from Gorjana, Urban Gem (the necklace from the above look), and House of Harlow. Yes, please. I instagrammed my delight immediately.
What do you guys think? If you want to give Rocksbox a try, you can for a discount: use the code BeYourBrightest and only pay $9 (normally $19) for your first month. (Remember, you can cancel anytime.) Sign up right here!
Congrats to Sara M., who won the $300 Tory Burch giveaway. Yay, Sara!
Hope you all have a very merry Christmas! I’m taking Christmas Day off (more food + family time to be had), but will see you here on Friday with a new post. Cheers!
