Let it Sleigh




Let it snow sleigh, let it snow sleigh, let it snow sleigh! That carol is stuck in my head.
Can't believe it's finally Christmas. Growing up, Christmas was always an extra special day cos it was my dad's birthday as well. I miss him so, especially today and on Fathers day.

Finding words to describe these swoon worthy Takai By Angela necklaces is a constant struggle so I’ll just stick with good ole ‘exotic'. Ok how about striking? Wait! Eye catching, flamboyant. Oooh, it gets better. How about unconventional? 

This piece right here though! Pics don’t do it justice I promise. I thought I had seen it all but I stared in disbelief when I opened the package. It also comes in orange and silver. If you’re an old reader then you are most def familiar with this brand and if you’re a new reader then check out a few Takai pieces I’ve styled herehere and here. I can’t possibly link them all or the ‘heres’ would be one mile long and probably need a post of their own. Can u imagine a post solely made up of here, here, here, here, here and here? Gotta stop before auto correct registers and populates here every time I type an h. Hilarious init? 

For some reason, as most people gravitate towards glitz and glam brights and pile on red for the holidays, I white. I love the purity and the freshness of white.  The contrast of white up against a christmas tree decked out in a city’s worth of brightly colorful ornaments is possibly the reason I’m drawn to it at this time of the year. 

While this is just a lack luster minimalist white suit, the fur collar on the vest gives it an oomph and the necklace makes for great icing on the top in creating this stand out style that’s perfect for the holidays. I did add a festive red lipstick to the mix even though it photographed kinda dark.

Gold spike heels gave a fancy feet effect that's perfect for the holidays. 

Here's wishing you all a very merry Christmas. 
Be safe over the holidays and see you next year, :).

  4. you look smoking hot in this white look! I really love how you paired that sexy vest with palazzo pants. The necklace is sensational and you the way you styled this look makes it really stand out...and speaking about standing out, you're right...white has a special purity and in this festive times when everything is colourful, wearing white is a great way to stand out. I traditionally opt for red on Christmas day, but this year I haven't decided yet. I'm celebrating with hubby and his family in Mostar. I can imagine how much you must miss your father, especially since it's his birthday this time of year, but we always carry those we love in our hearts, so in a way they are here with us.

    I also really like these photos...lovely location dear. You always take fantastic photos!
    I wish you a merry and blessed Christmas Eve and Christmas Day with your family.

Have a wonderful Christmas with your family and celebrate the legacy your dad left behind in you. He did good by you, and your siblings. God bless you, beautiful inside out lady.

  30. This season is a wonderful time to remember our loved ones and all the fun we had celebrating with them. Christmas memories are my happiest ones as a child and so much thanks for that goes to my late mother. So among all the hoopla and carols and presents its been great to bring those times to mind. Quite a gorgeous outfit you are sporting there, dear, very festive and wow! So exciting to see so much of those lovely breasts and belly. Was actually able to make it to the last picture before I went this time, was a challenge ;) But then I began imagining your (must be amazing) nipples brushing against that soft material and that thought alone stole all my control. Such an incredible feeling, dear, thank you SO much for sharing these!

  43. You look incredibly gorgeous, Idu! I love this entire white outfit and that necklace is indeed gorgeous, it adds such a beautiful statement and really pops beautifully against the all white! Though I love reds during the Christmas season, when we start to approach the days before New Years, I really love the idea of whites, too, and for the reason you've stated. I think it sends a great message to ourselves for the start of a new year, a nice clean slate :) Thanks so much for sharing, beautiful! I hope you had a wonderful Christmas and I wish you a very Happy New Year as well!
