Hi.

Welcome to The Color Floral.

So you've seen this look for as the main picture for my holiday style gift guide, now here is the post dedicated to it! I love this shirt so much!! When we got it in at J.Crew, it sold so quickly, I knew I needed to snatch one up and good thing I did. Here is the link to it, but I know there aren't many sizes left. Also, my skirt is from Express and is from a couple seasons ago. Every time I wear it I get so many compliments. It's very festive and is great for holiday events!!! Once again, you will notice that it's a bell skirt silhouette. You know that's one of my favorites!! It's so classic and looks good on all body types!! Here is a link to a full length similar style skirt. 

Shooting this was so fun with my friend Erika of Erika Aileen Photography. I knew I wanted something festive, but not overly thought-out and "too perfect" if you guys know what I mean. So I bought this this $5.50 bottle of Andre, grabbed some Ball Jar glasses, and headed to Erika's home, where we shot this. She had the fun straws and a blanket and boom! That's all we needed. The evergreens at her house were perfect. After that, we just had fun with it!!!

Working at J.Crew...I suggest button-downs a lot to people and more often than you would think, they make a face at me...I think a lot of people are under the assumption that button-downs are too casual for fancy occasions, or something. I'm not sure....but this look just goes to show that you can definitely dress up a basic button-down by pairing it with a skirt and some statement necklaces. It's so easy and comes naturally to me to think of things in different terms of styling them...but I have to remember that not everyone is open to that sort of thing. I'm working on it! :)

My pearls I got from my mother for my high school graduation. I was valedictorian of my class and wanted something I could wear to the commencement. And I've always loved pearls. My mother surprised me with them and I still love them and wear them a lot. I let me sister borrow them for her wedding day, and I too wore them on my wedding day. They're very special to me. The other statement necklace is J.Crew and I think is sold out, so here is a link to a similar style. Since I bought it, I think I've worn it at least every other  day!

I hope everyone has a wonderful Christmas and enjoys the time with family and friends!!! I know I am looking forward to it!
