This Holiday style mood boards are brought to you by 77Diamonds ; a wide collection of engagement rings.

Hello dearest friends, I can't believe today is the first day of December, the festive season is getting more surreal :). December is always the happy month for me, not because I got engaged and was happily preparing my wedding at eight years ago, but it is also the month of joyful celebration. We will host small Christmas party at home with close friends  and I will also attend few Holiday gatherings as well.

For me, celebration means a bundle of gratitude, a good food, a lovely companion and of course a fabulous styles. Whenever talking about attending function, there are top two things in my list to go with my attire.  First in my list is the hairdo, my hair is in a medium length and I generally like to tie my hair in the daily basis, especially if you are a working mom with one active toddler, practical styles becomes a necessity :). I love to play with several of pony tail, bun or braid styles depending of the occasion. 

Second in my list is accessories or jewelry. My favorite accessories or jewelry is a ring. For casual weekend gathering, I'd love to have chunky ring in a colorful rhinestone, I'd prefer solitaire type than multicolor stones. I'd usually pair them with my jeans and tie my hair into a simple pony tail.
My company always has an annual Christmas party. It's held in our activity hall after working hour. We will have dinner, games and exchange gifts at the party. During the day, I normally opt for  smart casual working attire, something that comfortable to wear for some game activities yet still appropriate for meeting with my clients in the afternoon before the party starts. I Love to pair them with my vintage pearl ring or dainty ring that my husband just bought for me (I wrote about it here). These type of rings looks chick and sweet. Also braid my hair to compliment the look.

Another annual affair is the Christmas Eve, I always spend the eve with my husband family, because it's also his parent's wedding anniversary.  I normally choose the venue, I love to recommend a small and cozy restaurant yet serve an authentic Christmas menu. I like to dress up more formal than usual for the dinner and I'd love to put my hair ups. It is a celebration of love....so I am going to wear my engagement ring to go with the attire. It is a simple trilogy diamond with a round cut that my husband custom made for me because I have a very small ring finger. I used to always wear it from the time we got engage eight years ago, but remember? now, with the toddler around that would not be a good idea anymore, so I'd rather keep it for a special occasion

I hope these three Holiday style that I love will somehow inspire youMeanwhile, let say hi with a big smile to December. I wish you have a great weekend, See you next Monday with another simple DIY series.
