Fresh Style: Holiday Party Style with Macy's

The holiday season is upon us, and while the weather outside is sometimes frightful, I'm enjoying the many opportunities to bundle up and keep cozy. Macy's invited five bloggers to share their holiday party style with a $100 gift card and free reign to choose what we thought would accomplish our goal. At first, my thoughts went straight to sparkly party dresses and tights, but the reality of this Seattle city girl is one of casual comfort. My holiday season is about spending time with friends watching movies in our homes and buffet-style setups at a relative's home for huge Filipino family gatherings. 

After trying on a few dresses & jumpsuits, I settled on what I'd been eyeing when I first set foot on the women's floor at Macy's: this Rachel by Rachel Roy sweater coat. I actually went straight to the Rachel Roy section because, after meeting her this fall, she made a real fan of me and was the reason I agreed to do this campaign. 

It was love at first sight for this sweater coat, from the ornate Aztec-inspired design to the beautiful clay & burnt orange tones to the draping of the sleeves & neckline. It makes a statement in and of itself. I paired it with vegan leather leggings, a worn tee & layered silver necklaces for that holiday rockstar style.

Jess, we're very similar. I would have done the same and looked at cute, sparkly one-time wear things. But then I would have looked for something that could be versatile like the sweater you ended up going with. I love staple items that can carry you through the season! Happy Holidays!

Thank you guys! Your comments mean so much to me. It's easy to get caught up in trends or styles you see on others, but at the end of the day, always wear what speaks to you. You'll feel so much better in whatever that is :)

You can vote daily until 12/10, and you can tweet vote too!
