This is a time of year for reflection, generosity, and  believing in miracles.  Some of us celebrate with the giving of presents and some with the giving of opportunity and guidance, but there is one thing we can all agree on, it is a lot of work!  So get ready, get comfortable, and throw yourself into the holiday spirit while dressing for the part.

Start with a relaxed, lightweight pair of slacks in a bright and cheerful burgundy red, then pair with a super soft, draping knit blouse that’s easy to move in.  Even in warmer climates, the nights are chilly this time of year so be prepared with layers but don’t skimp on style.  Avoid the hoodies and try a jacket with a woven tapestry bodice and buttery suede sleeves.  It’s somewhere between a sweater and a blazer and is as cozy as curling up in front of a fire.  Not everyone gets to experience a white Christmas, some of us must prepare for surprisingly warm days by choosing a pair of agile strappy sandals, perfect for running around. Choose a small, compact clutch that’s durable and won’t get in the way as you work your way down that to do list.

Finally, fashion meets function with this Galaxy Gear watch in rose gold.  Having to pull out your phone every time you get a text, receive a calendar reminder, skip a song on your holiday playlist, or just to check the time can be terribly inconvenient.  As time consuming as constantly taking your Bluetooth in and out as you make important calls, and leaving it in all day is an eyesore The solution?  A smart watch that fits comfortably on your wrist, in a variety of colors, and is basically an extension of your phone or tablet, allowing you to get things done is half the time.  Who wouldn’t want the gift of extra time around the holidays?
