I guess the holiday season has everyone craving festivities; my calendar is packed with dinner dates! (I’m not complaining; I love seeing friends and nom-ing on delicious food.) However, it does create the challenge of choosing an outfit I can take from daytime to playtime (haha, I can’t believe I wrote that.)

V.Ng and I just came back from an amazing getaway in Charleston, SC. We went for my friend’s wedding which was more beautiful than the “Holy City” itself.
I knew from the home-spun invitations and the lakeside venue that this would be laid back. Most of the weddings V.Ng and I attend are nearly black tie so I had to search for a dress with a little southern charm.

Hello! I hope you safely survived the impact and aftermath of Sandy. My thoughts are with those who were hit hard. (I’m taking refuge at a good friend’s who luckily avoided power loss.)
Returning to our apartment and packing an overnight bag made it obvious that I have certain seasonal wardrobe staples. These are my top ten picks that I can’t live without.

My good friend turned me on to these Zara leggings last winter. They feel great, the fabric is not wimpy, and the elastic band hugs in all the best places. So, It was no surprise when I saw that Zara brought them back again this year (and in more colors!) I immediately bought a second pair! When I told my friend I had seen the leggings and re-purchased she replied “that’s kinda all I want to wear this winter!!” My thoughts exactly. What’s your winter staple?
