Happy holidays from San Francisco! There are only two more sleeps until Christmas, and I'm attending my high school reunion tonight so there are a lot of festivities going on! I'm glad to be home with family and friends, excited for the holidays, and looking forward to reconnecting with old classmates and friends.

I wore this gorgeous formal red dress (the Evelyn fit and flare dress in Merlot) from Nora Gardner to my work holiday party recently. It's the perfect dress - flattering yet professional, formal enough to wear to the office, with a color that's made for the holiday season.

I was lucky enough to visit the Nora Gardner showroom in Midtown during our recent trip to NYC. I've come to not only adore her collection, but more importantly the mission behind it. After working on Wall Street for 6 years, Nora saw a need for flattering, professional attire for women. Most of the options she saw were either suits (unflattering and uncomfortable), dresses and skirts which were too suggestive or too expensive, and lacking in functional details such as pockets and durable fabrics. She decided to do something about it, and the Nora Gardner line was born!

I paired the dress with classic pieces - this pearl necklace, Timex watch, and Aldo clutch.

Timex is top of the line in classic watches. This Fairfield model is right on trend in rose gold, brown and white, with a fun indigo glow in the dark feature. Plus, use code HOLIDAYS for 20% off and free shipping off of $75 (this one runs $79.95 via Timex and $50 via Target). This would be the perfect last-minute holiday gift!

Coat: J Crew Factory | Watch: c/o Timex
This J Crew Factory jacket has been on major repeat since I got it from their Black Friday sale! It's so warm, and the neutral shade makes it versatile enough to match with almost every outfit.

Nora Gardner encourages women to invest in their office wardrobe and to understand the importance of a consistently professional appearance. This dress and the Nora Gardner line is the embodiment of that message. I hope you check out her line and find something you love!
