Mint isn't necessarily the first color that comes to mind when I think about holiday attire. Then again neither is floral and I regularly wear that out of season. But there was just something about this dress paired with this deep, cranberry cardigan. Y'all I am straight up in love with the color of this cardigan. It's the perfect "berry" color for the winter months. I also like the contrast it gives to my hair. I tried to make it more "holiday party appropriate" with the black accessories. Everything I'm wearing, save for the dress, is from 6pm.com. (Did you know 6pm is owned by Zappos? But products on 6pm are discounted up to 75% off their retail prices. BOOM!) I had never heard of the brand "rsvp" before, but they make an incredibly comfortable and lightweight cardigan. My black zipper clutch is a Gabriella Rocha piece, and I love how big it is without being bulky. It has a little wristlet strap, too, which is ultra convenient. My flats are the Ultragirl Sweet III by Melissa shoes. I love the fun bow detailing. I had no idea they would be kind of a silicone-ish material, but that makes them pretty comfortable. It almost feels like walking on air. I topped it all off with a dainty little blush pink pendant necklace from Kate Spade. I feel like mint and pale pink just always need to be together haha. As for my sunglasses, Mike hates them! He thinks they're absolutely ridiculous, and I guess they kind of are. I love the shape and the style of them. They're the "Super Duper Strength" glasses by Karen Walker and I'm in love with the gold mirrored lenses. They look kind of wild, but they're provide the perfect amount of protection from the bright sun. Last but not least is this perfect mint dress! I took advantage of a big sale over at LindyBop just before Thanksgiving and I racked up with like 6 dresses! They finally made their way over the Atlantic and into my mailbox. Now I cant stop wearing them! The fit is so perfect, and I love the length. Not to mention they have pockets! You'll likely be seeing a dozen variations of this very dress on the blog soon. I know you're so excited.
Since I've been eyeball deep in the deals over on 6pm.com, I thought I'd share a little bit of the fun with y'all! They have a pretty awesome holiday gift guide (gifts for him or her, all $100 or less!) so if you're looking for the perfect present to give someone (or ask Santa for yourself!), there you go. And bonus points for the extended return window for holiday orders. Orders placed between now and December 31st can be returned up until February 28th. If you order between December 18th and 22nd you'll get free shipping, and you'll get upgraded to free 2-day shipping if you spend $75 or more! (That means you'll get it by Christmas!) They're currently doing the 8 Days of Giving (through the 13th) - it's a new sale each and every day. Then on the 14th they're starting their 12 Days of Xmas - one gift on major sale each day. Just curious, how terrible would it be if I ordered a handful of things and wrapped them for myself under the Christmas tree?! Haha I'm actually pretty sure Mike would greatly prefer that. Can't make it easy for him, though!
How freaking awesome is my iPhone case?!?! I finally replaced my broken and sad iPhone 6 (that Linden absolutely destroyed!) I was using an old iPhone 5 for a couple of months and I finally cashed in my insurance to get a new one. They sent me an iPhone 6s at no extra charge! It's so nice having a fully functioning phone! Even before Linden demolished my 6 I couldn't use the front facing camera (or the regular camera half of the time!). Since I have vowed to keep my new phone out of Linden's destructive little hands, I figured I might as well spring for a super quality case. This Moschino case from Shopbop is awesome! Not only is it super freaking cute, but it's also SO durable! It's thick and it protects the front glass, too. The curved shape of the spray paint can makes it so comfortable to hold. I get so many comments about this case when I'm out and about. It's definitely a conversation starter. I've got my eye on a bevy of novelty iPhone cases now, but I'm not sure I could part with this one!
