A Touch of Holiday Sparkle + Giveaway!

A New York Love Affair

Believe it or not, the holidays are right around the corner. It sneaks up on me every year – like we just hopped the express train from Labor Day to Thanksgiving. Not that I’m complaining – minus the cold, this is my favorite time of the year. A time for family and friends, laughter and love, lots of delicious food, and of course, a little sparkle.

Now I don’t know about you, but I spend that entire month between Black Friday and Christmas scouring the racks for the perfect holiday look. Textures and colors tend to vary from year to year – I’ve done laces and silks, greens and reds – but I never skip out on the sparkle. It adds a touch of glam to your look, and reminds me a little bit of the twinkle in Kris Kringle’s eye!

One of my essentials this season is going to be Stella & Dot’s Sutton Necklace. It’s the perfect gift to myself all the ladies in my life, and is the touch of sparkle needed to top off your holiday look. Its mixed metallics ensures that it will go with any outfit you decide on. I teamed up with some of my favorite bloggers to show you five different ways to wear it, but there are many more!

I especially love how Courtney of Color Me Courtney styled her necklace. No sparkle is too much sparkle for this girl, as evidenced by her fabulous Nasty Gal skirt and big bright smile (more on her look here)
