Y’all, we love Christmas and the whole holiday season.

The lights, the glitter, the sparkle, the colors, the more is more all over the place.

But sometimes you just need a palette cleanser.

So we decided that, in the midst of all the jingle bells and let it snows, we’d take a deep, neutral breath…

And relax for a beat before the madness (and happiness!!) begins!

To us, there is nothing quite as soothing as a neutral palette, especially when it’s mixed with tons of texture,

This is the perfect place for a late afternoon cocktail with friends, with garland or without,

And this is the perfect thing to wear… Leopard is lovely, but nothing is chicer than neutrals in luxe fabrics with a laid-back attitude. We’d want to wear this every day!
