CHRISTMAS IN BLOOM 🎁🎄🌹

poppy

The holidays are here and unlike last year's tropical theme I'm ushering in the season with a classic Christmas color palette of red, white and green. Whenever I think of these colors I immediately think of all the goodies I  love about the holidays; Christmas trees, holly branches, peppermint candy canes, eggnog, Santa and kisses under mistletoe. 

Although I decided to bring some classic holiday style to the blog I decided to do it with a twist by wearing this vintage poppy print Summer dress. I picked up this lovely number off Etsy at the end of Summer and even shared a sneak peek with you in my Instagram stories. Quite a few of you loved it and expressed excitement around how I'd style it. Well the wait is finally over and today you can see how I put together this look for Christmas in bloom!

Since this vintage number is more of a Summer piece, I made it holiday appropriate by styling with red bow heels, a velvet bow clutch that looks like a present 🎁  all wrapped up, dainty bow crystal bracelet and matching poppy & floral jewelry.

My earrings and ring are actually handmade by Tatiana and Victoria Syvokin, a mother and daughter duo. Their lovely Etsy shop is called Orxideyka Studio and is based out of the Ukraine. Each piece is unique and meticulously made from polymer clay. I'm linking to pieces that are still available in their shop below.
