Basic Invite: Making Celebrations Easy

Hello,

I think sometimes we can get caught up in the routine of life. If we’re not careful, something that was once miraculous can turn ordinary. When something amazing happens, we should be celebrating it! One of the things I love most about a new year is having new reasons to celebrate. Turning another year older? Celebrate it! Graduating? Congratulations; celebrate that! Did you just add an addition to your family? Celebrate that! Getting married? That’s definitely a reason to celebrate! Having a reason to celebrate leads to….you guessed it, a celebration. It might be a big event or something you’re planning in your backyard, but having a celebration is a great way to honor a special occasion and spend time with the people you love.

One of the first steps to planning a celebration is picking out the invitations. Luckily for us, Basic Invite has taken out all of the hard work when it comes to selecting invitations. They are one of the few invitation companies that offer a wide variety of colors to choose from. Once you select a design for your invitation, you can change the color of each element on the card to over 180 different color options! They also give customers the option to order a printed sample of their invitation. Which takes the guessing work out of the invitation process. If you needed another reason to love them, Basic Invite has an address capturing service! I hate having to track people down for their addresses. I send text messages or call them but for whatever reason, getting an address is one of the hardest things to do. With Basic Invite, their address capturing service allows customers to share a link on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, or any other form of social media to request friends and family’s addresses which will be stored in the customer’s account and can then be selected during the design process. Check out a few of their invitations below and see for yourself why they’re the perfect invitation company:

Holiday Lookbook

Hello!

I love the holidays. I always have and always will. It’s great to be with family and friends while we celebrate the true reason for the season: the birth of our Savior. The holiday season has a special way of  bringing us together with our loved ones. As exciting as that can be, it can also be frustrating. Different events call for different outfits which can sometimes present challenges in the wardrobe department. I’ve been collecting requests from social media of some looks that you all wanted to see. This was a lot of fun to put together and I look forward to doing many more lookbooks in the future.

Office Holiday Party

lookbook1

For the office party, it depends on the type of environment you work in. This look is for the girl who wants to let her creative flare be seen but maintain her professional stance. To tone down this look, you can always switch out the vest for a black structured blazer.

Shoes: zara

Vest: Target

 

Date Night/Girls Night Out

lookbook2

Whether you are heading out with the girls or your boo date night can be fun to dress up for. I like opting for a suit rather than a dress to mix up my night look. It’s a little daring (even for me) but I think you need to step outside of your comfort zone every now and then. There’s nothing wrong with showing off your curves or scars that you may have. After all, they’re what make you unique.

Suit: New York and Company

Halter Top: Victoria Secret

Shoes: Target

 

Brunch/Shopping Outing 

lookbook3

I love the idea of wearing sequins during the day! One of my favorite ways to dress down a pair of sequinned leggings is to pair them with a sweatshirt. I like these leggings because they allow me to give my jeans a rest. If you have to run out to finish off your Christmas shopping list or go to a brunch with your girls, this is the perfect look.

Sweatshirt: Freedomhouse.cc

Collard Shirt: Forever21

Leggings: Express.com

Hat: Forever21

Boots: Old Navy

Christmas Day/Ugly Christmas Sweater Party

lookbook4

I can get pretty festive so I love the idea of letting my Christmas spirit show!  I opted for jeans because there’s a good chance I’ll be rolling on the floor with my sister’s dog. If you’re Christmas dinners happen to be more formal, don’t be scared to add a high-waisted skirt with your Christmas sweater.I have no shame in throwing on a Christmas sweater for Christmas dinner or an ugly Christmas sweater party. The holidays are all about having fun. Feel free to dress as festive as you feel!

Sweater: Forever21

Jeans: Express

New Year’s Eve

lookbook5

A sequined dress is perfect for New Year’s Eve. I don’t think it’s cliche’ at all. In fact, I think it’s the perfect way to welcome the new year. These over-the-knee boots serve a dual purpose by making a statement and keeping your legs warm. I love the contrast of gold and silver. Don’t be afraid to have fun with contrast in your wardrobe. It doesn’t have to be complicated. Think about simple colors such as white and black, or red and pink. Have fun with it and don’t forget to add your own personal touch!
