Happy Friday, gang! It’s time to kick off the weekend in style with a festive outfit and a delicious treat. The scene is set, and my best buddy Oscar is on hand to welcome the weekend. As always, Fridays would not be complete without a cocktail. Martini’s are always a favorite, so I’m sharing one today with a slight variation. It’s time to kick back. Relax. Cheers to you, ladies!
Since the holidays are here, it’s fun to add a little glam to my outfit. Is there such a thing as too many sequins? I think not. Let’s up the ante with a sequin jacket that comes in gold and anthracite. Dress it up with a skirt or dress, but I love it paired with a turtleneck and a humble pair of blue jeans. Add a glam pair of earrings, and you have a cute holiday outfit with little effort.
If there was one thing Mr. Style loved, it was Medjool dates. It’s a delicious treat any time of year. When I’m looking for a healthy snack, I pick Natural Delights Medjool Dates as they’re loaded with natural fiber and high in antioxidants and micronutrients. Add dark chocolate and sea salt into the equation, and you have a taste extravaganza. Let me tell you they’re the perfect holiday dessert. Mr. Style would have been one happy camper adding Dark Chocolate Covered Medjool Dates to his snack list.
Natural Delights Medjool Dates are raised on sunshine in the deserts of the southwest USA. Medjool dates require high heat and low humidity. Natural Delights is committed to sustainability, so there are no pesticides and no additives. Now that’s a snack after my own heart! I don’t always have time to whip up a healthy and tasty treat for my guests during the holidays. That’s when Natural Delights Dark Chocolate Covered Medjool Dates come in handy. I buy one or two cartons ahead of time and keep them in the fridge. Impromptu entertaining with Natural Delights on hand makes my life easier. Don’t they look gorgeous on a festive holiday tray?
If you’re looking for a low-maintenance holiday dessert, Natural Delights Dark Chocolate Covered Medjool Dates come ready to serve. Simple and Easy. Just the way I like it.
It’s fun to take an ordinary pair of jeans and add some glam and glitter especially when the holidays roll into town. The dark wash straight leg denim is from Talbots. A cream turtleneck from Banana Republic would look fantastic all on its own but we’re taking the outfit up a notch by adding a gold sequin jacket from Frances Valentine. A gold belt (old, similar here) from Ralph Lauren and gold ballet flats (old, similar here) keep the glitz going. Sometimes less is more when it comes to jewelry. Then again, sometimes more is more. A cocktail ring, gold bangle, gold hoop earrings, and crystal-studded gold cross necklace (similar here) are added for good measure.
Lke I said, I’m big into martinis lately. I’ve got a twist on that idea for you: a baileys espresso martini. As you can guess, it goes well with any dessert. Seriously: how can you go wrong with coffee and Baileys? Such a classic pairing.
Oscar and I wish you a lovely weekend! Cheers!
