east vs west style. holiday hostess.

while i love visiting friends and seeing their decorated-for-the-holidays homes, sometimes the responsibility of hosting a holiday get together falls in my lap. i love to entertain and love [even more] the idea of everyone getting dressed up...BUT ask hawaii people to dress up and they'll show up in their "good" t-shirt and shorts. #TRUTH

so here i am in my "good" tee and shorts. the material of these jacquard snake print shorts have silver fibers which are really pretty and festive. i'm wearing these ah-mazing tailored boots 'cause it's my party and i can wear them if i want to (plus you have to be prepared to make an ice or wine run!). and when the air gets cooler at night, i'll layer up with this faux leather vest.

what do you wear as holiday hostess?

Tiffany / Tiffany Style / Georgia
Tracy / TheRightShoes / New York

Ashley / Pursuit of Shoes / California
Danielle / Envision Pretty / California
Becks / oomph. / Hawaii

i've never had boots that fit my calves. at DUO, you can tailor your boots to fit. it doesn't get any better than that. oh wait, it does....they are super comfortable, too! LOVE.

I'm seriously so jealous of you West Coast ladies for not even needing to wear any outerwear this time of year.
