I'm a big fan of Kate Spade in general, but is there anything better than Kate Spade's holiday collection?! The quirky handbags, the additional embellishments, the bright pops of color and the fun ad campaigns, what's not to love?! Nordstrom is carrying so may fab Kate Spade pieces and I pulled a few of my favorites to style this gorgeous holiday look.
During the holidays I'm very into blacks, golds, reds, greens, etc., but blue is not normally a color I reach for. However, this navy dress caught my eye (a color I'm very fond of during the rest of the year!). The gems around the neckline really elevate the look and the length makes it even more elegant than your average cocktail dress. If navy isn't your thing, it also comes in the perfect bright Christmas red! I think this dress would be perfect for a work party, wedding, a party at a country club, or at a family friend's home since it is very conservative and appropriate for most formal situations.
I also fell in love with this itty bitty handbag. The shape is that of a daytime bag, but it has been shrunk for the perfect evening bag. I bought the gold because I think I will get the most wear out of it. I'm happy to report it comfortably holds everything I would want to carry with me: my iPhone 6, lip gloss, lip stick, compact brush, compact powder gum and wallet.
I think the key to dressing for the holidays is to keep it simple. With so many pieces coming glitzed and embellished during this time of year, choosing one statement item and keeping the rest simple is the way to keep from looking tacky. You'll notice in my outfit above, I kept my makeup simple, added a red lip, and no additional jewelry because of the eye catching neckline. What are you wearing this holiday season?
