saved by the bell sleeve

are you guys ready for a holiday outfit marathon?? well you have no choice because someone (me) chose to procrastinate this holiday season. oops! for whatever reason, this season seemed to be one of my most stressful to date and found myself frantically running around the city, both for my own holiday shoots as well as for pret.a.photo...i even visited the tree at lotte palace hotel 11 times! oh yeah and on top of that i had to buy presents for all of my family members and the gifts for each other because i have somehow become the designated family gift buyer. can you believe my parents called me within 10 minutes of each other asking what the other wanted?? well there is no time to waste so i was thankful to be able to throw on this sparkly tweed jacket with an all black outfit to be instantly holiday-ready!

poppy, please

as i mentioned in this post, i have been trying to make more of a conscious effort to re-wear pieces here on the blog. some of you may remember this dress from last christmas where i wore it to my favorite nyc holiday location! and trust me, i have been finding every excuse to wear it since! because the holidays are quickly approaching, i thought it was about time to bring this bad boy out of the closet to get myself in the holiday spirit while in paris. this time around, i had the cutest little sidekick that paired perfectly with the red lace - and it even has a crossbody strap to use when i'm running around town! i threw it on with my current favorite over the knee boots and it gave this dress just a pinch of a casual feel so that i could wear it all day long!
