HIS AND HERS HOLIDAY STYLE + A GIFT GUIDE FOR HIM

MERRICK’S OUTFIT:  LITTLE RED DRESS  ||  HEELS  ||  CLUTCH
PHILIP’S OUTFIT:  SUIT  ||  TIE  ||  SHOES  ||  SUNGLASSES 
Holiday parties are such a fun excuse to get dressed up every year. Both Philip and I attend dressy events throughout the year for work, but rarely do we get to attend one together. So of course I always jump at the chance to get a little fancy and go out with my guy. 
I’ve shared a few holiday party style ideas this week (here and here), both of which are very dressy and glam looks. For this look, I kept it a little more simple with a basic red bodycon dress that I found at Nordstrom. The thing I love about this dress is that it’s a super versatile piece I can wear throughout the rest of the year. Throwing a blazer or vest over the top would change the look completely, or I could even dress it down with a denim jacket and ankle boots. Plus, it’s under $100 and comes in a ton of different colors
Philip wears a suit to work every day, so to make things a little more festive, he threw on a bright red tie, and wore a french cuff shirt and cuff links for a slightly fancier look.

Speaking of men’s style, can we all agree that shopping for men is one of the harder tasks of the holidays? I always try to do a mix of sentimental, handmade, or service gifts (photobooks, planned out monthly dates, handmade art, etc), and store-bought gifts. 
I’ve rounded up some of my favorites below, both things I’ve given my husband in the past, and a few that I plan to give him this year. 
I’m loving this accessory travel kit for the guy who travels a lot, and these millenium falcon cuff links for the star wars lover in your life. Also, how cool is this wooden iphone case? Lots of fun ideas for every man in your life!

    HA! I love the funky socks your husband’s wearing. It’s all “business”, but with a little ‘wink, wink’. ๐Ÿ˜€

    What a fun photosession for the two of you. I’m seeing people do “anniversary pictures” not just family pictures. That’s what this reminded me of. We went to Toys R Us last night and I kept joking with my husband that I should shop there for him not just the kids. THe Millenium falcon cufflinks reminded me of that because he was eyeing the Lego Millenium Falcon for himself (so I love the cuff link idea).
