Tis the season to be jolly.
Finally, a holiday outfit on Red Rose Cheeks!
I wonder- do you dress up nicely in the holiday season or do you keep it simple? It's been really long since I used to buy really formal clothes to wear on Christmas' eve. I used to look for that sparkling dress, just to wear it once and then push it in the depths of my wardrobe with the other dresses. So, in the last few years, I came in terms with the fact that those dresses were seriously a waste of money. What I am searching for now is maybe a beautiful skirt like this one, festive but also easy to wear on multiple occassions. Just throw a large sweater on and see ;)
I usually wear a glamorous pair of flats to be able to dance all night long and a simple top with a 'twist', like a discreet open back. And now, to the accessories... Any outfit, festive or not, can be leveled up given the right statement necklace. Stores are full of them, but don't you sometimes want to have an custom made necklace that nobody else has? I personally fell in love with the amazing handmade necklace that Irini from Sweetcase chose to photograph in this project. I mean, look at all the details! Really intricate work. And being on the verge of seeming over-enthusiastic about this project, I am going to tell you that the bag also spoke directly into my heart with its' floral pattern, the vintage clasp and the polka dot lining inside. Worn with your favorite coat during these cold days, maybe paired with a huge scarf to keep you warm and there you have it!
Trivia: This photoshoot was one of the few we have done in the blog shot under direct sunlight. Don't think it was the photographer's inspiration. It was just so cold that I simply couldn't stay in the first shadowy spot we found, and the only thing we could do at the time was to come out in the sun! Now that I am thinking about it, the two projects we did with Sweetcase were shot in exactly opposite conditions- rain and direct sunlight. Interesting!
I would love to hear your thoughts about this outfit. Leave your comment and come back on Monday when a surprise will be revealed! Can you guess what?
