Cheers to the Most Wonderful Time of the Year!
Hi there friends! I hope you had an awesome weekend. Mine was super festive and I got to spend some quality time with other local ATX bloggers both on Friday night (doing this shoot) and at a holiday party at my house on Sunday. I invited a few other girls over and had so much fun introducing friends from different parts of my life to one another! ‘Tis the Seas… I think I’ll be saying that on repeat ;)
Friday night 9 Austin Bloggers teamed up on a chilly afternoon to bring you our favorite Holiday styles. Funny enough, we did not coordinate our outfits! We just showed up in this perfectly matching/contrasting color scheme… Great minds think alike! For real. You might not have guessed it based on this picture, but in this moment we were FREEZING! Think 40 degrees and windy. Thank goodness for champs, layers (in between pictures), and you guys… (ha!). We sipped champagne, warmed our extremities by the fire pit, laughed a ton, and then celebrated with a dinner after at Boiler 9. It was everything. I love these girls!
Each lady featured has their own unique style and yet we overlap in many areas… Lipstick + The Holidays? A must ;) Wavy hair don’t care? Uh huh. Each of these ladies has been so inspiring for me and I’m so pumped to showcase them today!
Keep on scrolling for details from everyone’s ensembles and links to each of their AMAZING BLOGS! :)

LADIES IN RED
How bright and festive do these girls look? I love the deep red and unique pattern and textures of each of their dresses. And a rep lip wraps together each of these outfits perfectly! #GLAMSQUAD if I do say so myself… Shop their looks below:
MAD ABOUT PLAID
Who doesn’t love pairing a red plaid with a skirt for the holidays?! Hilary and I are wearing similar plaid shirts and showing you two different ways you can wear them to your Christmas party. Wear it with tights & faux leather for that office party look or pair it with a blue tulle skirt and look ultra feminine and pretty! How amazing is that glittering clutch? Outfit details below:
GOLD, SEQUINS, AND TEXTURES
You can never go wrong with sequins & sparkles and these girls knocked it out of the park. How GLAM do they look?! Seriously! Can we talk about Kaley’s earrings? Or Haylee’s clutch? And Dani with that sparkly jumper and bold lip? #goals

And that’s a wrap! Eric and I have three Christmas parties this weekend and quite a busy week before that. I’m off next week and excited to slow down and enjoy the little Christmas moments. Like watching The Santa Clause in my pajamas or listening to Bing Crosby while I wrap presents. Enjoy your day guys!
