    We all know this moment - you've received your invite to a soiree, wedding, or work event in your mailbox or inbox. You excitedly open your invitation and scan the details of the party and your eyes suddenly halt - Cocktail attire? Dressy casual? You want to dress to impress, but these dress code terms are puzzling! Instead of fretting and avoiding making eye contact with your closet, decode the dress code with our handy guide! Whether your wedding invitation says semi-formal or your office suggests business formal, we've simplified the most common dress codes so you'll always know what to wear. If your soiree is fast-approaching and you're in a sartorial pinch, don't forget to stop by today's Style Steals and take 50% off over 200 dresses! Hurry - it ends tonight at 11:59 PM PT!

    Business Formal: The key to business formal is tailoring. Whether it's a structured dress, pantsuit, or separates, it's important to keep your look clean and business-appropriate. Dresses or skirts can be paired with tights or a blazer, and finish off your outfit with a clutch and necklace

    Casual: Some may argue that when it comes to a casual dress code, anything goes, but even when the event dress code calls for casual, we still like to keep our ensembles polished by mixing casual and tailored pieces. Pair pants with a blouse and stay cozy in booties and a coat

    Cocktail attire: Cocktail attire is one of our favorites when it comes to dress codes! To dress appropriately, choose a dress that is party-ready. You can wear something with a little sparkle, or dress up a little black dress with a statement necklace or daring earrings. Don't forget pumps and a clutch

    Dressy Casual: Dressy casual is simple - it's a dressed up version of your casual attire! Trade your everyday flowy top or dress for a more structured blouse. We love playing with fun pieces with pops of color, like a mint skirt. To complete your look for the dressy casual dress code, keep it polished with accessories like a watch or pendant necklace

    Semi-Formal: a semi-formal outfit should be classy, but not overdone. Try a cocktail dress or little black dress paired with heels and a touch of sparkling jewelry for a look that's appropriate for an upscale event. A good rule of thumb is the later the event, the dressier you should be! 

    With holiday parties just around the corner, being able to decode any dress code is essential. We know that whether your event is filled with glitz and glam, or you need to impress at the next corporate event, your outfit will be stunning!

    We enjoy the simple pleasures that come with staying in. We love relaxing to the sounds of a vintage vinyl record, sipping on a cup of coffee, or doing a little redecorating to our kitchen or office. Don't get us wrong - we love to pop the champagne and enjoy a night out on the town, but there is something very comforting about being in your own space. If you are looking to treat yourself to a little something special for the home, or are looking for the perfect gift for the homebody in your life, here are a few of our favorite and unique gifts for the home! 

    We don't know whooo could resist this darling teapot and mugs featuring one of our favorite creatures - the owl! Perfect for brewing your favorite tea and serving with a breakfast pastry or after-dinner treat, we love this quirky set featuring rustic shades of green, red and mustard. owl-mug-teapot

    Rifle Paper Co. never fails to amaze, and these notebooks are no exception! Each piece of Rifle paper Co. artwork, whether it's printed on a journal, Iphone case, or on a greeting card, is handmade by founder Anna Bond and printed on eco-friendly paper. We love keeping these notebooks close by just in case inspiration strikes, we need to jot down a quick list, or feel like working on our sketching skills. rifle-paper-co-notebook

     Even if you can't hear the sweet song of a canary or dove, these vintage-inspired bird cages add a delightfully rustic touch to any space. We adore the intricate wiring and weathered look, and love keeping these up on a shelf with our favorite trinkets or hanging outside in a garden!bird-cages

     These labeled stakes are perfect for the gal with a green thumb (or is working on improving her gardening skills!). Keep your herbs organized with these wooden stakes that complement any garden - large or small! These stakes come in a gorgeous glass-topped box so you can still keep them close by when there is a blanket of snow on the ground. garden-stakes

    Cute and quirky, we love these veggie candles! Perfect for adding a little mood lighting to your kitchen or just keeping as an adorable display, these candles will make anyone who loves spending time in the kitchen smile! In varying hues of red, yellow, orange and green, these veggie candles are at the top of our wishlist. veggie-candles

    We can't wait to spend a little extra time with family and friends this season, and sprucing up our space with a few cute new items is just the trick for refreshing our space! Which of these gifts for the home is your favorite?

    To finish off a week of rain, sleet, and snow, we're dedicating this Style Files post to the lovely ladies who kept their style cozy with gorgeous outerwear this week! When there's a downpour, we generally try to avoid leaving the comfort of our couches, novel and cup of tea in hand, but sometimes we just have to brave the elements. Luckily, we have the cutest coats, beanies, scarves, and boots to keep us stylishly warm! 

    Love Lola Blog's Lauren looks colorful and cozy in our anorak jacket! She is battling a wintery chill with a pretty patterned scarf, tall boots, and knit beanie. We love anorak jackets for the winter months - they pair wonderfully with everything from cute dresses to tailored skirts and pants! Her outfit is definitely one we'll be drawing inspiration from on extra-cold days. lolo-love-blog

    Finishing off your ensemble with a cape is the perfect way to add a relaxed, yet sophisticated touch to any oufit. We love how Laura of Walking in Memphis in High Heels paired our Travel Diaries Oversized Cape with laid-back jeans and a crisp button up blouse. Her plaid scarf is also a must-have! walking-in-memphis

    How lovely and polished is Emily of The Sweetest Thing's look? We love her layered minimal jewelry and her bright red blouse that complements her lip color perfectly. This outfit brightens up any grey day, especially with our Luton Jacket by King. Plaid is essential for the colder months, and we simply adore it when it gives a pop to outerwear! sweetest-thing

    Whether you're braving holiday shopping crowds or meeting a friend for a relaxing cup of coffee and conversation, we hope your weekend is filled with laughter, fun, and too-cute outfits!

    The much anticipated moment before the new year has arrived - Pantone has announced the official 2015 Color of the Year! Hues from past years include Emerald and Radiant Orchid, but 2015's shade is a "subtly seductive shade, one that draws us in to its embracing warmth." We would describe Marsala as a brick red with earthy undertones, reminiscent of red wine. This hue is definitely going to be spicing up our wardrobes in the form of textured dresses, ankle boots, and sophisticated blouses. In honor of the 2015 Color of the Year, we picked a few of our favorite pieces reminiscent of this rich color! marsala-clothing

    Marsala is the perfect way to add a bold, yet refined touch to your outfit. Complementary to all skin tones, we love the idea of dressing up a pair of Marsala ankle boots with a neutral shift dress, or cinching a casual cardigan and blouse with Marsala belt. If you want to make a statement, throw on a coat or jacket in this elegant hue or don a Marsala dress or lounge pants! We love this color paired with soft grey and blue tones as well as other warm reds like golden oranges, soft coral, and apricot shades.MARSALA-OUTFIT

    Whether you're adding this color to your wardrobe, wearing it in the form of lush lipstick or blush, or integrating it into your home decor the possibilities are truly endless - we can't wait to start wearing this gorgeous color! How are you planning on wearing this hue in 2015? Let us know!

    It's the most wonderful time of the year! Why? Simply because all the festivities serve as the perfect excuse for us to come together with friends and family, cook up a sweet or savory treat, and (this one is our favorite) get gussied up in elegant dresses! Holiday-ready looks are aplenty this season with tons of tulle, shining jewels, and vintage styles to choose from, but sometimes the hardest part is putting together an ensemble that will ensure you make an entrance. From metallic colors to a classic LBD, you will be inspired by some of our favorite fashion bloggers who are turning heads! 

    Rachel from Pink Peonies dons a red, fuzzy sweater reminiscent of the quintessential holiday flower, poinsettia. From her red lips to her red-bow vintage heels, the poinsettia red adds a beautiful and vibrant touch to her snow white surroundings. Her full tulle skirt keeps her look feminine and her outfit is perfect for your dinner with friends this season, or even to brave the falling snow! pink-peonies

    This blue and gold metallic A-line dress is absolute holiday perfection. We are swooning with how Kendi, of Kendi Everyday, paired her dress with little gold touches in her waist belt and her clutch. Metallic colors can be a bold statement that would be absolutely wonderful for a holiday office party. Pair your own metallic pieces with simple touches like Kendi, and you'll be the belle of the belle. kendi-everyday

    The stunning A Curious Fancy delights in an all red midi dress. We love everything about this dress from the playful textures of lace and mesh to the vintage styled high neckline and sleeves. Those dark berry hued heels finish off this beauty for any holiday outing. How romantic! Processed with VSCOcam with a6 preset

    Who doesn't love glitter? Atlantic Pacific's Blair styles her chocolate brown sequined pants with a snow white long sleeve blouse and an oversized bow. This elegant look is both refined yet relaxed and perfect for any holiday soiree! sequin-pants

    Lastly, the gorgeous Tanesha of Girl With Curves graces us with the perfect LBD for the holidays. The hint of polka dot mesh, sweetheart neckline, and darling full skirt make up this an essential little black dress. Pair your own LBD with a clutch and cozy overcoat to complete your party-ready look! girl-with-curves

    We are just giddy with style glee over here! With these gorgeous girls and their holiday inspiration looks, we just know you are now prepped for your own holiday parties. We have more style inspiration for those of you who just can't get enough. Now, go ahead and get to styling! Happy holidays!
