WHAT TO WEAR :: HOSTESS WITH THE MOSTESS

You didn’t think we could talk holiday entertaining this week without discussing proper hostess attire, now did you? Well, good, because this shoot is bursting with some big ideas and a special treat from Bauble Bar too!

As you may or may not know, when it comes to dressing up for the holidays, I like to go big or go home! So, when playing hostess, you better believe I’m likely to go a bit over the top. So with a little inspiration from the likes of Mrs. Claus and White Christmas… I bring you the Hostess with the Mostess ensemble!

Nothing says Northwest girl like a flannel… but pair it with sparkle and tulle, and you’ve got a seriously classic holiday outfit on your hands!!

I love any excuse to kick up  my heels and twirrrrrrlllll!!! 

Not to mention an occasion to layer on loads of rhinestones…

Which reminds me… have you heard of the Buried Baubles from Bauble Bar? They’ve having 20 days of insane deals on some fabulous gems, and every day a new bauble and a new clue is brought to you by another editor. And, today (lucky #13!) is moi! So here’s your clue…

If you’re looking for some studly earrings, these chevron gems will be topping your wishlist! (Seriously guys, it couldn’t be any more obvious – and I fully intend on purchasing the black ones!) 

Hooooray for holiday dressing!! (I pretty much never want to wear anything else ever!!)

    I absolutely LOVE LOVE LOVE LOVE your entire ensemble. I’ve pinned and twitted it. Indeed the perfect holiday host costume. And so perfect that you get to feel like a ballerina all the while.

    LOVE your blog.

    Jah :)

    I love this outfit! Seeing as though checked flannel shirts are practically the national costume of male Australians, I think I could borrow something from the boys and make it my own with a twist :)
