Baton Rouge holiday party outfit ideas as merry and bright as the season

The season passes in a blur of lights and activities. For this month’s style shoot, we tried to capture it all: the tree trimming, gift wrapping, partygoing and gift shopping. We played in the aisles of local toy and candy shop Giggles, where we marveled at its gummy-bear chandelier, giant decorative lollipops and macarons, colorful gift-wrap station and pastel-hued tree ornaments shaped like doughnuts and ice cream cones. Between the shelves of jelly beans, stickers, stuffed animals and rainbow-colored pianos, we found what we were looking for: what it feels like to be a kid again.
