kick start the holidays: aris on the coast ushers us into my favorite time of the year…

…last night was my first holiday party of the season! And to make it even sweeter, it was at one of my favorite boutiques, Aris in Laguna Beach! It’s no secret, I love this store (check out my first post here) and seriously, I mean I LOOOVE this store! So how does a gorgeous boutique like this (that already takes my breath away) kick off the holidays? Shop owner, Trey Russell, ups the ante and, regardless of the rain, hosts a beautiful soiree that was nothing short of amazing…

If you have ever shopped Aris, you know it is the epitome of luxury with every detail planned out and executed to perfection. As I had mentioned in a previous post, Trey has a way of taking your shopping dreams and turning them into reality! Well it was clear that the reality of last night was that the holidays are here and you were going to kick it off in style! The Veuve was flowing, there was a cheese table (not cheese plate!), amazing sweets, to die for new collections (J Brand RTW!), and Diptyque candles all around to entice your holiday senses…

I actually dreamt about these salted caramels last night!


I truly can’t think of a better way to start the holiday season! I said it before and I will say it again, if you have never been in Aris, do yourself a favor and stop in!! It is gorgeous, inspiring, and I promise you will walk out with a piece that you will truly cherish forever. Literally every time I drive away, I am always thinking about how soon I can come back – yes, it is that good! Happy holiday season friends!
