I’m a keep my holiday going till after the New Years kind of person so now that I’m on Christmas vacation I’m kinda in a holiday hangover.

Christmas Eve is spent at my sister’s.  We go to Christmas Eve service then head over for her formal dinner which usually always includes lots of pictures, fun and cheesecake.  This year Avon had some really fun and festive holiday jammies so we got in the spirit early.

Holiday Plaid is my jam!

Perfect Red Dress

Little Red Dress

This perfect red dress is what I wore for Christmas Eve.  Since it is now winter changed it up and paired it with tights and some lace up patent leather pumps (mark., old) and a pretty rhinestone bow belt (WHBM).  I felt very Mrs. Clause in it which was very appropriate.  I meant to have it hemmed, but never got around to it.  Maybe for Valentine’s day make it more fun and flirty.

Winter Solstice had me feeling the icy vibes with silver gray and light blues.  This fun sequin reindeer sweater (Avon) was a simpler way to be festive.  I really liked it paired with my boot skirt (WHBM) and OTK mushroom gray boots (Shoedazzle).

Black and Blue

It’s no secret I’m a sucker for an all black ensemble.  Besides being slimming, it also is the perfect canvas for your accessories!  My latest accessory obsession is anything in this summer blue, shades of turquoise, ocean and sky!

For my black canvas the dress and belt are vintage mark, check my sale section often for them to pop up at http://ahessinger.mymarkstore.com but they make the perfect showcase for the Chase The Blues necklace ($24), Blue Me In Earrings ($18) and Wild Blue Ring ($18) all by mark. and available at my eBoutique.  I just CAN NOT stop wearing these pieces, if you’ve seen me in the past month you’ve probably seen me wearing these.

Chase The Blues Necklace

Chase The Blues Necklace

I’ve been wanting a necklace in this style for some time now so when mark. came out with theirs I jumped on it!  You’ll see this style of statement necklace everywhere lately and this is one trend I’m totally all about.  I love how the Chase the Blues has some definition in the stones to keep each one unique.  If you recall I showcased this necklace on our initial Wear and Share Wednesday post!

Blue Me In Earrings

Blue Me In Earrings

The Blue Me In earrings are the perfect summer must have earrings!  They’re light and small to medium in size so you can wear them with your large statement pieces without competing.  Plus, the closed hook backs make them perfect for those occasions you might end up going for a swim in them.  I recently wore them on my vacation to Hawaii where ocean dips and looking casual yet chic were constant.

Wild Blue Ring

Wild Blue Ring

I don’t think I need to share how obsessed with this ring I am, just look at this picture.  Enough said!  I might of even matched my mani I was so inspired by these blue shades.  Try Essie In The Cab-Ana my summer go to shade so far this spring and summer, and I’m not usually one to wear blue nails but this one is so chic and fresh!

Easter Nails and Hamptons Collection Preview

I couldn’t figure out what I wanted to do for my Easter mani this year but I knew I wanted a pastel… but I planned on wearing white and cobalt so I needed something to coordinate with the crisp color scheme… then I remembered Kristen got me a cobalt blue crackle for Christmas!  Perfect!  I decided to layer it over a pastel pink… this mark. tickled pink to be exact!

Crackles may not still be “in” but I’m still enjoying them!  They’re a quick and easy way to create an interesting nail “design”.  Plus I thought it looked like a cracked hard boiled easter egg so totally themed out!!
