My outfit of the night on Christmas Eve.
The stockings were hung on the mantle with care,
We scurried to church, smiling at the giddy little ones awaiting SC’s arrival.
Back in the kitchen helping mum and dad prepare dinner for the family,
As I was rinsing spinach, when I halted in a frantic state,
I rushed over and grabbed the camera,
Only to discover capturing beautiful pictures in low lighting beside a glowing tree is easier said than done.
So that is my apology in poem form for what is probably the worst quality blog photos you will ever see on the internet. I hope I was able to manipulate these pictures enough so you can feel some Christmas Eve magic. My tip for taking your everyday clothes to holiday is, pairing rich textures. My top from Arie is velvet and my A&F skirt is wool. When worn together you get a festive look without trying too hard.
These stunning stilettos are from Aldo. I feel like their metallic texture plays up the holiday vibe. My tights are slightly chevron printed, but it is hard to tell here.
I hope everyone had a sparking holiday season!
