Check out her exclusive guest blog for the campaign, below, and be sure to keep up with her happenings on Instagram.
The holidays are my absolute most favorite time of the year. I’ve been making my list, and checking it twice to make sure I not only have the perfect gift for everyone on my nice list, but also the perfect look from head to toe. When it comes to elevating your style, accessories top my list, and nothing says “holiday” like a great shoe, an unexpected detail and this season’s chicest eyewear. This year, I’m embracing my sunny SoCal surroundings and bringing you a California-cool twist on holiday glam. Take a look at my hand-picked festive looks for women and men, below.
Eyeglasses: I can’t get enough of these L.A.M.B. glasses that are equally as cute in the office as they are for hitting the town. The subtle pattern adds a bit of interest, while the flattering shape keeps them just the right amount of classic.
Sunglasses: Dolce & Gabbana nails the current ’60s trend in eyewear with their Limited Edition Mambo Masterpiece. The gold frames and jeweled detail make these sunnies so glam you’ll want all your parties to require shades.
Cleobella Grace Clutch: I’m a sucker for anything handmade, and the fringe and stud details make this clutch ideal for nighttime, but also great with jeans and a tee.
Love Tatum Cuff: Any piece this unique is a guaranteed head-turner. The uvarovite stones’ emerald hue feels so Christmas-y and luxe.
Tularosa Dress: The perfect updated LBD. I love the sheer details, bell sleeves and flirty feel.
Bootie: Not sure how we survived before the heeled bootie, but the Raye adds a cool factor to dresses, is killer with jeans and friendly for colder climates.
Eyeglasses: VonZipper created a frame that simultaneously makes you look smart and stylish. The AVANT GUARDIAN is my favorite pick for men who want to look hot no matter what they are wearing. The great thing about this eyewear selection is it’s fun and festive during the holidays, but can be worn throughout the year and incorporated into dressed-down looks as well.
Sunglasses: The dark red tint of the Modo Paper-Thin Ultra adds an unexpected element to this sleek and sporty frame. A departure from typical shades, these are a great addition to your winter wardrobe.
Outclass Shawl Collared Cardigan: The perfect transitional piece for men is a cardigan that can take you from day to night in an instant. Step aside Mr. Rogers — the herringbone detail, two-hand pockets and shawl collar make this piece the new classic.
Chambray Shirt: Leave it to a surfboard company to take the Chambray work shirt to the next level. The tailored fit, ultra-dark denim and stitched seams give this staple a craftsman quality any man can appreciate.
J. Crew Slim Trouser: The perfect pant. This cut flatters all body types and is just the right amount of “slim.”
Happy Socks: A well-thought-out look is not complete without a fashionable element of surprise.
John Varvatos Slip-On Shoe: I love a shoe that is as versatile as it is comfortable.
