I had such a fun week hanging out with my San Fran-based friend, Caitlin, who was visiting Austin for the first time. We explored the city, played with Phoebe, and I was even lucky enough to have her styling prowess assisting on a holiday photo shoot! It was also super exciting to unveil the first holiday party in our kate spade new york collaboration; I’m so glad that y’all seemed to be inspired, and stay tuned for our next soirée on the 13th (with a video, too!) Today I’m in fully party-planner mode getting ready for the annual CamilleStyles.com holiday party tonight. I decided to invite everyone who helped make this year unforgettable (photographers, designers, chefs, florists, videographers, contributors, etc.) so I think we’re going to have a full house! It’s been good incentive to finish getting our place decorated, and I’ll be spending the rest of today picking up a few last-minute things and doing lots of cooking before everyone arrives. What are all of you up to this weekend? Hope it’s full of merry-making, and enjoy my favorite links from the week!

Inspiration for an effortless, farm-fresh dinner party.

Thinking this would be the perfect playlist for tonight’s party.

Wise words at the dinner table.

Thinking about making these for Phoebe’s Christmas gift.

Just picked up a pair of these in ballerina pink…and never want to take them off.
