I know we are all in a holiday hangover, but I hope everyone had a truly lovely holiday weekend!
(And got absolutely all the goodies they wanted ;))
The hubby and I spent our Christmas in Northern California with my family. One of my most favorite and magical days was Christmas Eve when my mom, sister, and I went to see the San Francisco Ballet's Nutcracker! Not only is the ballet lovely and festive, but downtown SF and the beautiful old War Memorial Opera House was just so magical that it called for a special ensemble.
H&M Jacket [new, $30] Banana Republic Strapless Dress [secondhand, $15], Banana Republic Tie Up Suede Heels [new, $15] YSL Clutch Bag [new, $20] Baublebar for Target Dangle Earrings [new, $12]
Outfit Total: $92
I felt like I could just join the dancers right on stage with these shoes! (Not really, haven't danced in nearly a decade!) I loved the fun twist on ballet shoes these pink tie up heels added to the all business black dress and jacket.
I had really tried a million other ideas for my hair before deciding on this unoriginal high bun. But every tutorial and YouTube video completely failed me! An hour later and I was stuck with an arm cramp and major frizz. I was out of time and joy! I had to revert back to what I know. Hence ballet bun for the ballet.
*Miranda Priestly's voice* "Bun..for the ballet..groundbreaking!"
If you are a fellow Devil Wears Prada lover you will get it! If not, get the reference here.
Also, how adorable are these earrings?? I have always loved the fun Baublebar earrings, but a pair at Nordstroms can set you back anywhere from $30-$60. But Baublebar's "Sugarfix" line at Target is just as cute and over half the price!
Thank you so much for stopping by and reading! Let me know what you think, and share your own fun holiday activities (and outfits!) below!
