Happy Tuesday everyone!  In collaboration with Marie Claire, I’m so excited to share with you three holiday outfits today.  Inspired by their December issue jewel tone color stories, I’m playing with lush plum, bright canary, soft blush, and deep amethyst colors.

A touch of rich plum and bright canary yellow!  I absolutely love playing with these complementary colors.  It’s so vibrant yet balanced, striking yet harmonious.

:: Holiday Casual ::

Playing with blush tones, I love adding casual elements to a holiday look by pairing it with a fun sweater.  A festive brunch or a girls’ holiday night out – an embellished sweater together with soft pink hues creates a quiet sense of sophistication.

Keeping warm with textures!  Fringe is a great texture to play with during the holidays.  The pencil skirt silhouette keeps the look polished while the fringe texture adds a hint of charm and playfulness.

Thank you so much for reading!  I truly hope you enjoyed the photography and styling.  And of course, the chandeliers!  We shot at Faith & Flower, an incredible restuarant located in downtown Los Angeles.
