Infuse Some Style Into Your Holiday Wardrobe At The NYC Grand Opening Of @KiplingUsa #KiplingHoliday

Lately I’ve finally turned an eye back to myself, and started splurging a bit here and there. I’m a busy mom, and while I know that means a lot of running around, and very little sleep, it doesn’t mean I can’t look stylish as I go. I’ve been wanting to inject some style into my boring, basic wardrobe with some fun fashions that are also useful, and so was thrilled to find a sassy little wristlet from Kipling with black patent trim and gold hardware, the Essa Wristlet Wallet:

It’s from the Kipling new arrivals collections, and the Essa Wristlet Wallet is perfect for this time of year and can carry me through the season well. From daily wear as I do errands or chauffeur my sons around, to dressier evenings out and holiday parties, it’s designed to be the perfect accessory that keeps me organized while looking great. It’s so pretty for something so very practical!

I can’t ever not have my ID and credit cards; the courtship days of waiting for my husband to drive me, open doors, and pay are past, and now I have to drive my sons around, open their doors, and pay for everything they need, and quite a bit more. I need easy, I need convenient, I need light, and the Essa Wristlet Wallet from Kipling is also just my style– it’s perfect! It dangles from my wrist, out of the way, still leaving me with two free hands that every busy mom needs and I put my drivers license, credit cards, and keys inside and just goooo!

Kipling is celebrating the grand opening of their first Brick-and-mortar store in Soho, New York City, as well as the launch of its holiday village, the #KiplingHoliday Tour, and both start on November 20th. The tour continues on to Los Angeles and Orlando, and guests who attend will be immersed in Make Happy Experiences, including a Kipling Holiday Collection show wall, on-site monogramming, bespoke gift-wrapping, personalized sweets, photo booths, holiday DIY inspiration, and of course giveaways- a fun time for the girls to get together and asfaddfs too!

Ready to shop? RSVP for the #KiplingHoliday Tour!

It’s free, family-friendly, and open to anyone that RSVPs! The NYC event is daily from Thursday, November 20 to Saturday, November 22 from 5-9pm, at 57 Greene Street in Soho, and it will be a blast! RSVP here.

Check out the Essa Wristlet Wallet I ordered while you peruse too. It’s such a great idea for holiday gifts for women that I can pick one up for my best friends, sister, my son’s teachers…we could all use it and it’s the perfect gift giving price. Another piece I love from the Kipling Holiday catalog is this sexy leopard print tote- as you can see, I want some excitement in my wardrobe! This is the Always On Albie Patterned Tote Bag and it’s also on sale now…how amazing would this be this winter?
