The holidays are my favorite time of year. Spending time with the ones you love, the holiday music, and the delicious homemade Christmas cookies get me every time. I love it. Not to mention, holiday parties are the perfect excuse to dress up! Since red and green seem to be a pretty permanent color scheme, I decided to go with this emerald fit and flare jacquard dress. I didn’t want to look like an elf so I styled this dress with a statement shoe and accessorized with gold undertones. Mixing prints is all the rage right now. Matchy-matchy was so 2001. I played on the bright green hue and went for my Jimmy Choo pumps with a peekaboo green flower. The leopard print and neutral under tones complimented the vibrant hue. To tie in the beige flower and gold bag I added a festive gold belt. The belt provided glamour to the dress without overdoing it. The last touch, a chunky gold watch for flare.
