I hope you all had a wonderful Christmas and you’re dancing your way right into 2016! This is a special time of the year for me. Time stops and we escape reality for a little while to enjoy the festivities, the Chrsitmas lights, great food in great company, reflect and plan. I cherish quality time with my husband, slow mornings with long breakfasts, watching childhood favorites and playing board games late into the night.

classic ’50s inspired look

This has been one of my favorite go to outfits during the holiday season. The fluffy sweater is so soft and comfortable while the jeweled details around the neckline elevate this piece to semi-formal events. The midi skirt with a design that resembles a tulip shape as well as its floral texture are simply outstanding. This combination is unique and very easy to put together at the same time.

There is something special and inspiring about a classic ’50s inspired look. Women after the war wanted to ditch their utilitarian clothing and look feminine and ladylike again. …and they certainly wanted the latest and greatest fashion to be available for them not just for the rich.  People were beginning to feel a little more freedom when it came to their fashion choices. No longer did women feel like they had to conform to a certain look for certain situations. The outfits are uncomplicated yet ladylike. They are comfortable and with a simple accessory or a different design or texture, you can create one of the most special and feminine ensemble without trying too hard.

    The 50s are the best era to be inspired by, in my opinion. You look so fantastic in this outfit! The midi skirt is gorgeous. And this shoot looks like it was so much fun to do! :)
