Dress c/o Gentle Fawn

We’re just over a week from Christmas and I still haven’t wrapped up my shopping. I thought I had a total grip on it this year (I even got started in November!) but somehow, December totally took me out. After dealing with some ridiculous construction-related mishaps in our place (not fun), I’m finally feeling like I’m getting back to normal and the stress is abating, and most importantly, that I can start enjoying the holidays again. It’s hard not to feel festive in a beauty of a dress like this Gentle Fawn one, though – click through to read more!

I’m really into the idea of tempering more holiday-esque elements (lace, sequins, etc) with something tough or cozy this year. I had a leather jacket shrugged over this when Alicia and I stopped by a holiday party at the Fairmont and it felt like a perfect balance between femme and tough, especially with my trusty Zara ankle boots.
Just days before this, I was actually cuddled up in the Magnolia Hotel in Victoria while there on a quick work trip. Honestly so unreal and I can’t wait to go back again later this year! A big thank you to them for having me, it was such an elegant experience (from their beautiful suites to their impeccable attention to detail when it comes to the hotel experience) and I can’t recommend Magnolia enough if you’re in Vic ever!

And with that, I’m now cozying up for the day (decided to stick around home rather than head into the office!) and yes, shopping later this afternoon. Need to crack down! Are you wrapped yet with your shopping? Tell me in the comments below!

    I got all my Christmas shopping done a while ago but I still haven't had time to wrap it! I don't go home for Winter break until the 22nd, so looks like I know what I'll be doing during those last days before the big day!

    Obsessed with that dress!! I'm a huge fan of lace and love how it's super classy. The straps are so unique and make this dress very distinct. Great piece for the holiday season!!
