The Best Accessories for a Holiday Look

Your Smile is your Best Accessory Crest White Strips

Holiday styles are always more fun with the right accessories, from gorgeous sparkly jewelry, to glittery clutches and a statement pair of heels (for me that’s a pop of color). All of these aspects can really dress up a holiday style, from a simple black dress to a sweater and jeans combination. But let’s not forget one of the most overlooked and important accessories of all – your smile!

Ever since high school, I begged “santa” for Crest White Strips so I could brighten up my smile for New Year’s Eve parties. After I received them one year, it became tradition that my sisters and I received a pack of Crest White Strips and used them right away to achieve a beautiful smile. So trust me when I say Crest 3D White Luxe Supreme FlexFit Whitestrips at Target would make perfect stocking stuffers (I look forward to it ever year)! When I first started getting them, I had a lot of time off from school, so finding time to wear them was easy, but the good news is it is still easy to find time to wear these once a day, even with my busy work schedule and holiday events! Now I wear them the hour before I get ready for bed, which is usually when I’m winding down for the day and taking time to blog or catch up on my favorite TV shows.

The reason I believe having a bright, beautiful smile is so important this time of year is that you are going to be having a good time, which means showing off those pearly whites while smiling, laughing and catching up with friends, and let’s be honest, there are going to be a lot of photos taken at these holiday events, and one of the most noticeable things in a photo is your smile. So make sure you are prepared by using Crest 3D White Luxe Supreme Flex Fit Whitestrips, available at Target. This is my first time using the Professional Effects and I can definitely started to see a difference in just a few days. I am an avid coffee, tea and wine drinker – so seeing results right away is so exciting.

This is my FAVORITE skater skirt ever. Sadly I bought it on sale last year from Asos and it sold out super fast. It sold out before I even had a chance to share it.  Here are some similar options:

On Cinco de Mayo I wore an old Zara dress my friend gave me last year! She ordered it off of eBay and they accidentally sent her the wrong size, and well, lucky for me, it was my size! I decided to pair it with my thrifted Ralph Lauren jean jacket and a simple necklace.
