Ladies, being a proper weekend guest requires a bit of finesse. There are rules to follow—that is if you plan on receiving a future invite. The basics: Know to bring a gift for your hostess, leave the place just as clean or cleaner than you found it, and know when to leave.
Your wardrobe should reflect your surroundings. Being polite applies to your fashion choices just as much as your behavior. When in doubt keep it casual, comfortable and well-made. The holidays have me seeing red! Reds provide a chic pop of color and also announces you are in a festive mood. Cozy wool and cashmere fabrics help you feel like you are at home and give you extra warmth in times of colder temperatures.
Home away from home is a fun place to be, bring out designer pieces you might never dream of wearing around your humble abode.
