Every year, I look forward to celebrating my love affair with December. Amidst the busyness of the month, the congested traffic and burning wallets; I remain to be delighted for with it comes every meaningful celebrations parties, get-together and merry-making.
My December month started with the warmest birthday greetings from everyone who remembered my 31st birthday. The month will end with bliss as I celebrate our wedding anniversary, followed by a big 'bang' as I celebrate with everyone with fireworks and merriment to welcome a New Year!
In the next days, I am looking forward to these activities and events - my sister's 30th birthday celebration at SIS Macapagal, my 4-year-old son's mini recital at school, my 6-year-old daughter's first ballet recital at Shangrila Plaza Mall, and my kids's Christmas Adventure presentation at school. Not to mention the Christmas Eve dinner with my family, Christmas day with the in-laws and our day-after-Christmas event with other relatives.
In all these events and celebrations, I simply want to look my best. I can't just go out wearing my favorite comfy shirts, jeans and fit flops. I need to wear different clothes yet sport an equally glamourous look.
By nature, I am not a true-blue stylish fashionista... but by heart, I am!
This season, my closet needs to be a updated and I can give myself my very own fashion makeover for the holidays.
My Style and Fashion Wants:
+ clothes that fits my budget and perfect for my style and personality.
+ to look simple yet stylish, casual yet glam, at the same time.
+ clothes that I can mix and match with other pieces of clothing in my closet.
+ versatile pieces of wardrobe staples that can go a long way, not just for the holidays but the whole year 'round.
I've decided to take a look at the clothes from The Flower Collection and create my own 'Holiday Look Book.' It's a fashion style that doesn't scream.
Flower Collection Inspired Holiday Look Book
Fresh and Festive
A pair of white pants is an essential basic for any wardrobe. I would love to wear a White Pants and Halter Tops for my daughter's recital and Christmas Eve dinner. Wearing white pants gives me a feeling of freshness and sexiness. Pairing it with a halter top with a cowl neckline (2_Debbie) gives it an elegant appeal. Wearing it with a bright orange knit top (Desy) would be perfect for a wonderful family Christmas dinner.
Jeans are timeless fashion staples. I can manage to look chic as I wear one in dark blue color. The dark fabric wash and semi-bootleg cut balances my body shape and draw attention away from my hips while making my legs look leaner.
I'll be pairing it with a sleeveless yellow top (Cordy), a color that matches my sister's bright personality - perfect as she celebrates her birthday. I'll put on a pink short-sleeved blouse with a fluttery design (Reena) as I attend my son's mini recital at school. his pants is also good for casual get-together with my other relatives and I'll wear it with a green halter top with shirring details (Shanta).
Sweet and Sexy
Black pants are a basic necessity for any woman's closet. I love the amazing allure that black pants can bring as it goes well with anything. It flatters my figure in an incredible way. I'll pair it with a white sleeveless top with ruffles and embroidery (Giana) perfect for great moments with the in-laws. I love the almost sparkling design of the short layered sleeveless top (Renes) which I can wear on our day-after Christmas celebration with other relatives.
In between working and taking care of my family's needs, buying gifts and gift wrapping, sleepness nights and restless days; I know I can manage to look fresh and fab as I put on pieces of clothing from The Flower Collection.
I'll continue this post as I check more fantastic items from the Flower Collection and celebrate in style.
Stay tuned, as I'm thinking of posting a Second Part.
