I Feel Pretty | Festive

I hate to do this to you but this reminder is just as much for me…

There are 34 days until Christmas.

34 DAYS!

This mama needs to get on the stick with preparations.  There’s decorating, baking, shopping, wrapping and holiday merry-making to be done!

But first, let’s attend to this little holiday known as Thanksgiving.  Or as my kids call it, the day before we decorate for Christmas.  🙂

 Even though we’ll be hosting and I’ll be doing a lot of the cooking (two big turkeys and lots of pumpkin pies!), I still like to dress up in something that feels a little special.

This jacket from eShakti has just the right amount of sparkle to be festive without being over the top.  It’s perfect paired up with a cranberry blouse, stretchy grey jeans, and snake print heels.

    I do love to dress up during the holidays, you loom gorgeous love red on you.

  2. Annette

    That’s a beautiful blazer, Alison, I could think of numerous occasions to wear it!
    Unfortunately eShakti don’t ship internationally.
    Your heels are breathtaking 🙂

    Between the Stunning Blazer, Python Pumps, Raspberry-Red Top & that Long Fun Necklace you do look Festive I agree. And OMG 34 more days till Christmas which means just 40 more days till it is a New Year. And I like Jo-Lynne’s Look.

    My pleasure to link up on this Wednesday. =)

  4. Sheaffer

    That jacket is greatness! But you know me, I’ll be wearing leggings this year for sure! 🙂

  5. Jo-Lynne Shane {Musings of a Housewife}

    I love those heels, but girl. Tell me you don’t cook in those, lol. We go for comfort around here. I like to look nice for photos, but we certainly don’t dress up either. 🙂 ALTHOUGH this year we are going OUT for dinner YAY so no cooking and no cleanup AND I will definitely dress up! I guess I need to start thinking about what to wear . . . Thanks for having me co-host!

  6. Carly

    hey hey pretty girl! LOVE that blazer/jacket on you…it is like the perfect color combo for you! Happy Tuesday….

  7. Sarah @ Tucker Up

    That jacket is gorgeous and I loveeee that necklace!

  8. April

    I cannot believe that the holidays are here! I’m totally opposite to your cherry spirits though – I love Thanksgiving and become more of a scrooge during Christmas time! (Probably because as Christmas gets closer, my students get wilder!)

    You look great!!

  9. susan

    34 days! I need to get on it as well.
    Looking gorgeous. love the jacket!

  10. Erika Slaughter

    Super cute outfit!! But on Thanksgiving I go for a cute but comfy look…just in case I have too much turkey. 🙂

  11. Style Journey

    Such a beautiful blazer! I guess I better get into high gear with Christmas shopping and decorating too. It comes way too fast!

  12. Suzanne

    Having had our Thanksgiving a month ago the pressure is off here : )

    You must have one huge oven to cook 2 turkeys.


  13. Ashley

    Only 34 days?! This fall is flyinggggg by! It feels like it was like just last week that it was summer!

    Super cute outfit, doll. Love the cuffed denim!


  14. kendra kay

    ahhhhh how many days????? well, i think you could wear your jammies to thanksgiving and still look gorgeous. but i do love that jacket (and your necklace too!) 🙂

  15. Sukhi

    33 more days and I will be home with my family! I haven’t seen them since July and am super excited to spend couple weeks with them. 🙂 Cranberry color looks great on you and I am loving the buttons on that jacket.

  17. KC Saling

    Love the look!! And shoot, I have SO got to get on top of my Christmas shopping. I have most of the family and a couple of girlfriends I exchange gifts with actually picked out, but that doesn’t count, does it? Can I at least put a half an X in the box? 😀

  18. Niki

    I love this look on you, and what a great jacket!

  19. Mo

    A little sparkle and shine is a great way to look cute for the holidays with going overboard. Nice look! 🙂

  20. Lulu Soler

    You do look very festive – love!


  21. Lauren @ Style Elixir

    You look so fabulous Alison!!!! I adore this jacket – it’s perfect for the holidays and so glam! Thank you for hosting today, I love visiting your blog 🙂

  22. Silvergirl

    What am I wearing for Thanksgiving???
    I don’t even know what I am wearing tomorrow!

  23. Laura

    What an amazing jacket and your heels are absolutely fabulous!

  24. Iris

    WOW! Work it girl, you look just amazing!!! I’m loving your festive look! 😀

  25. Rachel G

    Your jacket is so lovely! I like the subtle sparkle!

  26. Tiffany

    I love that rich cranberry color on you!

    I also can’t believe that Christmas is right around the corner! Usually my pregnancies seem to creep by, but since I’m teaching this time around, I think it’ll go faster because the year is already flying by.

  27. Ginnie

    You did a great job of balancing casual and special – looks like the perfect Thanksgiving outfit:) Thank you for hosting!

  28. hl
