4 Style Tips + Modern Holiday cards

This post is sponsored by Basic Invite, but all thoughts and opinions are my own. I only recommend companies and products that I have personally tried and loved.


I know, I know it’s barely July and I’m already talking about modern holiday cards. BUT it IS “Christmas in July” season! This is the perfect time to start thinking about Christmas, because it’ll get you excited for Christmas and these style tips can be applied year round! Along with each style tip, I’ll also be sharing why I love Basic Invite!

1. EMBRACE COLORS

Before I scare you off, neutrals are colors too! By colors, I don’t mean you have to walk around like a rainbow. (But if that’s your style, please go ahead!) And by “embrace,” I mean do what feels right for you. For example, I like to embrace pinks, whites, and more pastel florals in my wardrobe. By "embrace," I also mean not being afraid to try new colors outside of your comfort zone. Start by picking one item in a color outside your comfort zone and pair it with other items that are the colors of your choosing.



Basic Invite is one of the few websites that offers almost unlimited color options with instant previews online. There are over 180 different color options so you can personalize your cards down to the smallest detail. I'm very picky when it comes to pinks and I am usually disappointed when it comes to getting the exact pink color that I want on an invite. But with Basic Invite, I have various pretty pinks that I can happily choose from! This is definitely what sets Basic Invite apart from almost any other online stationery company.

2. TRY IT ON FIRST 


I ALWAYS try my outfits before heading out. There have been numerous times when I planned an outfit in my head, but once I put it on, I was like “nope!” Thankfully, for the most part, I have time to change. Hopefully, you’ve had time to change, if this has happened to you, hehe. :)


Basic Invite is one of the few websites where you can get a printed sample of your actual invitation. This is amazing, because this way you can can see exactly how it will print & the paper quality before committing to it. 

3. ACCESSORIES MATTER

What truly pulls an outfit together? Accessories! Whether it’s a favorite purse or some fabulous shoes, there’s no denying that accessories matter! Liven up your tee & denim combo with a straw purse in summer or animal print booties in the fall. 


Your invitations are no exception. With Basic invite you can choose from over 40 different colors of envelopes, so you can make your invite pop and stand out before even being opened. Make sure your Christmas party invitation has a festive envelope to match.To make things easier for you, envelopes are peel and seal!

4. LET YOUR PERSONALITY SHINE


This gets said often, but the most important style tip is to just be yourself. Let your personality shine! You make the outfit, not the other way around. :)


Foil cards (flat or raised) are available in gold, silver, and... ROSE GOLD! (If you didn’t know, I’m obsessed with rose gold, it was even my birthday theme this year).


One last thing I’ll share about Basic Invite, is that they also offer an address capturing service that allows you to simply share a link on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, or any other social media site to request your friends and family’s addresses. How easy and convenient is that?! P.S., Basic Invite offers recipient address printing at NO COST on all card orders. I encourage you to browse around the site and look through their invitations, victorian Christmas cards, and even business cards.

Right now, Basic Invite is offering 15% off with coupon code: 15FF51
