Holiday Party Attire Without The Suit

I’m not gonna lie, but I’m a total Christmas geek! Everything about the holidays makes me feel like a kid again. Memories of leaving cookies out for Santa and playing with my new toys in front of the tree on Christmas morning still make me smile…something I often forget to do as an adult these days with the stress of holiday shopping, work deadlines, and the sometimes awkward family reunions. But this year I’m challenging myself to have fun again by partnering with Amazon Fashion to put the holiday cheer back in Christmas! And what better way to do that than with 12 Days of Ugly Christmas Sweaters, am I right??!
I’ve rounded up my favorite “ugly” (but honestly totes cute and v festive) holiday sweaters from Amazon Fashion’s lighthearted and playful selection this year. Take a look at all my picks in this post and then join in on the fun by buying one for yourself. If you haven’t picked out a sweater for your Ugly Christmas Sweater party yet, then now is the time to get shopping! PS – with fast shipping via Amazon Prime and super affordable prices, these would totally make a great last-minute Christmas gift for anyone on your list! Happy Holidays!

I’ve long been a fan of UK high-street fashion brand River Island and I’m so excited to announce that they just recently launched their US website. Now all of us in the States can enjoy the same affordable but stylish fashion as our friends across the pond, and just in time for fall layering!
For their launch, I’ve partnered with River Island to showcase some of my favorite pieces in a variety of looks over the next 3 months. Here’s my first round of outfits so read on and let me know what you think!
Fun fact: I backpacked around the world to 11 countries in 78 days when I was 25. And aside from all the sights and cultures I experienced, another amazing thing I gained from the trip was the experience of meeting other travelers from all over the world and hearing their stories at each hostel I stayed at. You see at hostels there’s a uniquely open and inviting social atmosphere. Common spaces with their cafes, bars, games, and books are designed with congregating in mind. I’d often meet people in the lobby playing board games or talking about their day’s adventures. It was a great spot to pick up travel tips, or even make new friends and find people to go out with. It’s since been a while since I’ve stayed at a hostel, but luckily I got the chance to relive that experience again on this trip to Iceland!
