Boo and I don't really have any fancy holiday parties to go to this year, but that doesn't mean I won't get dressed up like I'm going to one. It is sparkle season after all, so every day is a good day for a sequin skirt.

P.S, you're getting a sneak peek at a new shopHollyDolly item! I'm still trying to work out a few kinks, but I'm hoping to have these wordy wire necklaces added to shop early in the new year.

skirt: JCrew (old) (similar)

Happy Holidays!!!


Man, is it really that time already?! I’m signing off for the next few days to celebrate with our families. So Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays, my friends! Hope you’re days are merry and bright :) 

p.s - this is the photo we used for our Christmas cards this year. We were going for slightly ridiculous. I think it worked. 

Happy Holly-days


I’ve been soaking up all the Christmas goodness this week. The delicious smell of the tree, the twinkle of the lights, The last minute shopping and gift wrapping. All while drinking lots and lots of tea while trying to kick this cold. I mean, fuzzy socks and warm cups of tea are the cure for all colds, right?

Anyway, I’m signing off for the extended weekend to enjoy the holidays with the fam. I’ll be back late next week- I’m sure I’ll be sharing more Christmas goodness! Until then, my friends, Merry Christmas and Happy Holly-days :)

A Boston Blogger Holiday Mixer


worn on December 11th, 2011

On Sunday I attended a cute little blogger mixer hosted at the LF store in Harvard Square. After meeting up with Jamie (A First Impression) and Sarah (Fadass), we headed to the store for some good old bloggy-girl fun. We styled up some LF clothing for a little photoshoot, decorated santa hats, drank some delicious hot cider, and had a little yankee gift swap. I was lucky enough to get some coffee cozies handmade by Sarah hereself! Score!
