Holiday Ready

It’s officially that time of year where everyone is thinking about the holidays – holiday parties, decorating and of course – shopping.  This year I find myself even more removed from the hype of holiday sales than normal.  Perhaps because I am in the process of decluttering and organizing in preparation for downsizing to a smaller apartment.  Traveling so frequently reminded me how much I really need in life – not much!

As I write my Christmas list for this year, I’m really focusing on what items really bring me joy – a cozy pair of slippers, or cardigan or a versatile dress that works for day and night (and is also great for traveling).  As I look for gifts for those in my life, I’m trying to search for things that will bring them joy – not just be something that is forgotten about.

One thing that still brings me a lot of joy is the perfect holiday dress – especially when it is green and velvet like this one!  To be fair, I plan on wearing this dress when it isn’t Christmas too.  Holiday parties are a great excuse to get a little more dressed up – sparkle, velvet – you name it!  I rounded up a few more great holiday dresses below!
