Holiday Dressing


Fair Isle Poncho // Denim

Back in early October I flew out to Charleston to meet up with the Draper James team to shoot their holiday collection, and guys, I’ve been dying to share these images ever since!

Draper James also had Chimee from Around the Way Gyrl and Hoang-Kim from Color & Chic on set as well. The three of us hit it off the moment we met! Between us girls and the amazing production team from Draper James, the entire week felt like Summer camp.

We worked hard, but we definitely played hard too! Lots of girl talk over hair and makeup, goofing while on set, and singing along to our favorite Christmas carols while sweating in the Charleston heat. To say it was an unforgettable week would be an understatement!

So I’m thrilled to finally see the finished product and most importantly be able to shop the looks, because I’m not kidding, THEY ARE GOOD.

Below is a round up of the looks I shot for this most recent launch, along with a few of my favorite notes about each one! I will also be sharing a BTS chat about a few of them over on instagram stories today too… so feel free to pop over and take a peek!

Let’s Get Fancy!

Okay, starting off strong with this dress. HOW PRETTY IS THIS ONE. The skirt is velvet, the top is lace, and the scalloped neckline is everything. It’s incredibly comfortable, chic, and honestly would be a show stopper at every single holiday party!

Cozy & Casual

This look is so much fun. This jacket is truly just so easy to wear and such a great way to sass up a white tee and denim. And this backpack, don’t get me started. I have it in the camel color and use it almost every day. It holds my laptop, 14 lipsticks, and all of my other necessities. Can’t say enough good things.

Plaid Perfection

This is my Leave it to Beaver holiday look and I. AM. HERE. FOR. IT. I think this may have been my favorite look of the entire shoot. There is something about a shirt dress that I just love. and honestly, I felt the most like myself in this one. Such a fun holiday look.

Pajama Party

Last and certainly not least, how cute are these PJs?! The ruffle detail is adorable, and I can’t get enough. Also, did I mention how cozy they are? Because they’re so freaking soft! Perfect for all those late night Hallmark Movies!
