Yay – it’s the holiday season!! I love this time of year. Not just the traditions and presents and secrets and good will and great food. Although I do love all of that. What really appeals to me this time of year is style-Holiday Style.
From the fun of picking a fancy dress and killer heels to wear to the parties to the sweater choices people make to the variety of gorgeous boots out there – fashion is fabulous in December. I like it so much that I integrated it into my current Blaze release, NICE & NAUGHTY. My heroine, Jade, loves style and studied fashion in college, only to have to sideline her fashion dreams to move back to her small town to take care of family obligations. Not only did Diego bring Jade some very naughty holiday inspiration, he inspires her to quit hiding behind excuses and embrace her dream. Oh, he also catches a panty thief, too.
So fashion style is high on my list of things I love in December for sure. But really, what it’s all about for me is holiday style. Decorating! It’s the holidays, baby. Break out the tinsel. One of the traditions we have in my house is to all hop in the car and travel from neighborhood to neighborhood, enjoying the lights. And, if we can, admire the trees shining bright in the windows.
There are trees with colored lights, or with white lights. Some are decorated in an old-fashioned style, others in glitter. Some people decorate the tree, the room, and the entire house, where others just string lights on a ficus in the corner (yes, I admit, that was me one year).
Personally, I tend to go traditional for the most part. Yes, my tree has a few dragons, fairies and unicorns among the Santa’s and bows, but the overall feel is old-fashioned. Now my mom is more of a glittery coordinated decorator. Her tree is white and glitters. Her lights are white and glitter. Her decorations are white and blue or white and pink, depending on the year. And yes, they glitter. I’m pretty sure that the gifts I mail her end up being put in gift bags that match the décor so as not to mess up her overall style, although she won’t admit it.
So how about you? What’s your holiday style? Do you have one you stick with every year, or do you change it up from time to time? Would you ever use a stylist to help with your holiday style? How about your personal style? Me, I’d be open to trying either or both –just for fun! And for more fun, I’m offering an autographed copy of NICE & NAUGHTY to one commenter today. Happy Holidays!
