A Winter Whiteout

Knit: J.McLaughlin | Denim: J.McLaughlin 

I know what you're thinking; "white plus this girl? disaster waiting to happen!" As valid as your point (and my husband's!) may be however, I'm 99.9% convinced it's impossible for any style-lover to resist the allure of an all white look come December first - nevermind the fact that the guys at J.McLaughlin actually challenged me to create said look and you know your girl never turns her back on a good challenge! 

Working with the classic brand to come up with a fun look for the season I was completely spoiled for choice. Did I want to go for a dress I could wear to my husband's company holiday party? (I totally would have opted for this LWD by the way!) A skirt I could see myself wearing for years to come? (Um, this one!) Or something completely different? After hours worth of trying on different combinations at the Beacon Hill location (I'm pretty sure the staff and I are now family - hey Diana!) I finally settled on a couple of wardrobe-workhorses I knew I'd easily be able to dress up or down. 

Paired with my favorite clutch and delicate jewels for a little added sparkle my new sweater and jeans quite literally took me all the way through from a 9am meeting with clients to a bubbly-soaked 9pm event at The Mandarin last Thursday. While that make's it a no-brainer in my book, I'd love to know what you think of today's look. . .

The Best Gifts For The Girl Boss In Your Life

I know what you're thinking: "what does this picture have to do with buying gifts for the girl boss in your life?" and you know what? The answer is absolutely nothing! I simply have a soft spot for this particular snap which was taken while the hubby and I devoured dessert after dessert at one of our favorite little spots back home in Ireland, Avoca's Suffolk Street Cafe. 

Now that that awkwardness is out of the way/you're done drooling over the most amazing carrot cake known to mankind (um, look at my face, I'm not just saying that!) we should really talk shopping or more specifically christmas shopping. If you're anything like me then you're a big fat procrastinator and ever so slightly overwhelmed by all the difficult to buy for people you have left on your list this year. With that in mind, I thought it might be best to start with a group that's not just easy to buy for but seriously fun too A.K.A. the girl's in your life who just so happen to be killing it. 

From mugs to calendars you'll soon see there's something for every girl boss out there but I just so happen to have narrowed down my top picks here . . .

Stars Without Stripes

Dress: Topshop | Sandals: Steve Madden 
Watch: Cluse | Sunnies: Karen Walker 

Stars; I'm not sure I could tell you why exactly but I've always been somewhat reluctant to incorporate 'em into my personal style. Maybe it's because I have a tendency to put them in the same boat as hearts, a boat that's more often than not, a little too girlie and too cheesy for my personal taste. Harsh, huh? But you know what? As the years tick by I seem to be developing a much greater affinity for all things star-spangled - and apparently I'm far from alone! 

Lately it seems brands and designers from every corner of the world are developing a full-fledged obsession with stars. Just look at some of the latest collections from Valentino, Saint Laurent and even Chinti & Parker, they're chock-freakin'-full of the things. While every single one of these pieces is as brilliant as you could imagine I'm not about to invest in such a "trendy" design right now. That being said, I'm more than happy to add similar, budget-friendly pieces to my closet, pieces like this dress. 

A must-have from Topshop I bought this little number approximately four hours after arriving home in Dublin - fyi; that trip flew by you guys. Admittedly a spur-of-the-moment purchase made when I was severely sleep deprived (A.K.A. that moment when a girl should never be allowed to shop) I half expected to regret my decision but between the color, the print and that high neck I've only grown to love it more. Even better yet, I've come to realize just how perfect it is for the holiday season - festive but not "in your face" festive I'm already planning on wearing this one with tights, boots and an embellished blazer come December 31st! But what about you? Do you know what you're wearing this NYE?
