Holiday Blowouts

November 16, 2011

Thanksgiving is practically a week away, I’ve booked my plane ticket back to San Francisco for Christmas, and I’ve got about five parties coming up in the next couple of weeks - suffice it to say, the holiday season is here!

Fa la la la la la la la la!

As with every holiday season (see here and here), I’m on the hunt for a few new festive dresses to make the coming month that much more exciting. While last year my picks were a bit more scattered, this year I’ve narrowed my party dress wishlist down to three categories/trends: bold patterns, updated LBDs, and sequins and embellishments. Now comes the even harder part of narrowing it down to just one or two pieces!

Which ones would you choose? (Keep in mind the Thanksgiving dress always needs a bit of room around the waist…)

  1. Tibi Rococo Print Dress - $462
  2. Betsey Johnson Envy the Heiress Dress - $398
  3. Edun Marble Silk Chiffon Dress - $500
  4. Marc by Marc Jacobs Panthera Shift Dress - $358
  5. Topshop Tinsel Fringe Dress - $120
  6. AllSaints Char Dress - $295
  7. Rebecca Taylor Lace Bustier - $425
  8. Vanessa Bruno Athé Black-Beaded Dress - $360
  9. Anthropologie Wink & Rimple Dress - $228
  10. AllSaints Erodes Dress - $495
  11. Vince Sequin-Embellished Crepe Dress - $495
  12. Philosophy di Alberta Ferreti Embellished Lace-Overlay Dress - $322

This weekend was everything I had hoped it would be. Between relaxing on the porch overlooking the Long Island Sound to playing tennis with my family, I could not be more unhappy about being back in NYC. Thankfully I will be returning to the house my Mom rented along the shore this weekend and mark my words, I will be back in the water within the first five minutes of arriving.

Here are some of my favorite bits from this past weekend:

collecting shells and sea glass on the beach •

• watching Finn explore EVERYTHING •

• fresh lobster •

• bike riding everywhere •

• swan pool toys •

• outdoor dinners with family •

• fourth of july festivities •

• scrumptious breakfasts on the porch •
