Tis the Party Season!

I tend to get a little excited around this time of year, not only because I am mad about Christmas, but because of all the holiday parties going on it means I get to break out a party dress!
There are a number of stunning styles out at the moment so you will not have a shortage of options. Here are a few I have put together for you.
Maurie & Eve Equinox Dress
Maurie and Eve – Equinox Dress . I am a big fan of the pencil skirt and how it’s demure style is teamed with a sexy cut out, crop or low back.
Bec & Brdige Drifter Top and Skirt

The Bec & Bridge – Drifter Top & Skirt, holiday appropriate in red.

Party Dressing

ASOS – Bandage Back Jacquard Tulip Dress | Chaos & Harmony – Dreamstone Black Heel | Meadowlark – Crystal Chain Earrings. I love how this dress has a couple of styles to it and with it being silver it suits the holiday season perfectly.

ASOS Sequin Cowl Back Minii

This ASOS – Sequin Cowl Back Mini Dress is a glam pick and turn around and you have a party going on in the back. Earring and Ear Cuff set from Mango.

The winner for me this year is the stunning ‘Christina’ dress by amazing Melbourne designer Yeojin Bae.

Yeojin Bae Christina Dress

I have long been a fan of Yeojin’s beautifully femine style and was delighted when I found this aqua beauty was being re-cut; perfect for the festive and wedding season. Thanks Haejin for making delivery so easy!!

I hope you all are enjoying the build up to the holidays with family and friends. I would love for you to share what you are wearing #hayleandgrace on Instagram.

White Out

While our northern hemisphere friends are getting dusted in the white stuff, here in NZ we are at the beginning of summer and what better ‘non colour’ to wear than white!
Always a fan, you will see me pairing white with white. Use different textures to break it up a bit or mix in a bit of colour via a subtle pattern, your shoes, accessories or jacket.
Don’t be put off by the seasons, white can be worn all year round. Here are some of my picks for summer. Add a dash of red lippy and voila!
White Out - Summer
Jeans – Frame Denim | Ghost Tank – Zoe Karssen | Naut Tunic, Always & Serpent Bracelet – Moochi | Sunglasses – Le Specs Black Lagoon | Shoes – Nude Footwear
 Check out these pics for inspiration on how to wear white on white across the seasons.

Nasty Gal (left) has a bit of edge,  I love the shoes worn with each outfit. The lovely Arielle from Something Navy looks classic in a white shirt (right) perfect for Autumn or Spring.
White Out 1
With the weather cool in Wellington for this time of year I throw on a check shirt with white denim shorts or jeans. Shirt – Rails | Jeans – Urban Outfitters. Now if only the temperature would rise!
So tell me, how do you wear your whites through the seasons?
