Winter Style: Holiday Outfits #1 +#2


It’s holiday party season, which means it’s time for red everything, velvet dresses, high heels, and tons of tinsel. Stay tuned for some cool outfit ideas!

Holiday Outfit Inspiration #1: Red Peplum Top

I love wearing red to holiday parties. I think it’s such a great, festive color. So a red peplum top is a great central piece for this outfit. Peplum tops help whittle your waist and create and hourglass figure. Pair with a pair of black leather or coated pants and a patterned sports jacket for a cool-girl kind of look and a bit of shine. Finish off the look with black stilettos with red accents, a black bag with some silver hardware and a solid silver choker to polish the entire outfit.

Choker: O-Ring Snake Chain Coker in Silver, $3.90 at Forever 21

Pants: Moto Babe Coated Leggings, $15.87 at Go Jane

Shoes: C Label Napoli-28 in Black, $32.99 at 6pm

Purse: Ida Clutch by Carlos Santana, $29.99 at TJ Maxx

Jacket: Jealous Tomato Floral Raglan Scuba Bomber Jacket, $29.99 at Century 21

Holiday Outfit Inspiration #2: Denim Mini Skirt

Another look I really love is the denim mini skirt. Though people may traditionally associate denim skirts with springtime, I happen to love a denim skirt paired with a long coat and long sleeves for the winter. This look is definitely more casual and fun, so it would be great for a small New Years gathering. I’d start with a straight denim skirt, paired with an athletic-looking all-black long sleeve shirt. Pair this with sneakers (bonus style points if they have a platform!) and layered necklaces for a street-style vibe. Top with a brightly colored peacoat, flashy clutch and ultra-cool minimalistic digital watch and voila! You’ve got an effortlessly cool holiday look!

Sneakers: Superga Acot Linea Sneaker, $79.95 at Nordstrom

Watch: White Digital Activity Tracker Watch in White, $9.99 at Rue 21

I hope these holiday outfit inspirations gave you some ideas on how to amp up your style game for this holiday season! Hope your holidays are wonderful and full of happiness, love, laughter, and great fashion!

Fall Fashion: Favorite Looks + Thanksgiving Outfit #1


I love autumn. The colors, the weather, the beginning of the holiday season, the clothes. I can finally layer my clothes and bundle up in some of my fave clothes.

Even though we’re already more than halfway through November and almost on to winter already, I thought now would be a good time to share some of my favorite fall looks with you. Stay tuned for some Thanksgiving outfit inspiration after!

Scarves + Caps

Scarves have been some of my favorite fall and winter accessories for a few years now. When the temperature starts to drop, they’re the first thing I reach for. I also got into baseball caps a couple of months ago, probably in springtime. I wore them all summer, both at camp when I wanted to keep my hair under control and the sun out of my eyes, and at school when I wanted to go for a trendy street-style look. This fall, however, I’ve realized how much I love the pair together. They’re the epitome of street-style chic. They’re cozy and comfy but totally on trend. I think the pairing reminds me very much of a celebrity just trying to go about their life while hiding from the paparazzi. This look is perfect for class, running errands, or an afternoon out.

Scarf: Merona Women’s Plaid Scarf in Gray and Cream Stripe, $19.99 at Target

Cap: American Needle X UO Tonal Strap-Back Hat in Slate, $29.00 at Urban Outfitters

Stand-Out Coats

A stand-out coat is always a winner, and this month especially I’ve been hardore ogling some bright and eye-catching coats that are perfect for this season and next. They’re cozy as anything and make your outfit stand out. Extra credit if your coat has fancy buttons!

Big Sweaters

I used to be all about form-fitting silhouettes, but the last few months, I have realized the appeal of big sweaters that pool around you. They’re great for snuggling into when you’re a little cold, convenient for pairing with leggings and boots when you’re running late, and perfect for so many situations. I have so many different styles now, like a regular long-line sweater and a cold-shoulder drapey sweater, and I could just live in them. Find one in a color and style you love and rock it all fall and winter!

Turtlenecks

For years, I refused to wear turtlenecks, even though my mother always begged me, but at the start of the semester, I got really into them. I had gotten one last fall at Target, but I had only worn it a handful of times, and then I bought another one in September. They’re classy and cool, not to mention super trendy. I love pairing them with high-waisted jeans or skirts and long necklaces. I tend to stick to solid colors because I find them more slimming, but if you love the look of a patterned turtleneck, go for it!

Now, onto the promised bit of inspiration…

Thanksgiving Outfit Inspiration #1: Flowy Pants

I love sharing outfit ideas with you guys because I have so so many and I can’t always wear them all myself.

I firmly believe that the only way to get through the holidays, especially Thanksgiving, is to wear comfy, stretchy clothes that you can breathe in. There’s so much food and drink that it can be hard to stay in restrictive skinny jeans or a tight miniskirt throughout the many courses of the Thanksgiving meal. But that doesn’t mean you have to give up looking cute as can be!

For this particular outfit, I’m loving a pair of stretchy, flowy pants that let you eat as much as you want without ruining your outfit. Many of you may see flowy pants as a spring- or summertime piece, but when you choose something that looks a bit more structured, like a denim-esque pair, you can pull them off in the fall, too. This pair from Pink Ice is like the jegging version of flowy pants: looks like denim, but in real life, they’re 100% tencel, which is a super comfy and stretchy material. Pair these high-waisted beauties with a simple crop top and a flowy poncho, cardigan or kimono that you can cuddle (or hide!) in once the food coma hits. Bonus points if they color coordinate! I think these pants just scream for a heeled bootie, so I picked a pair with a cool lacing detail. I also think this outfit is calling for a trendy choker, so I picked a velvet choker with a leaf charm that matches the black booties and the whole outfit’s boho flair. Last but not least, finish it off with a cool patterned tote that boasts some contrasting colors. This will add some spark and extra detail to your outfit. Now, all you have to focus on is eating!

Winter Style: Holiday Look #4: Shaggy Faux Fur Vest


Hey guys, welcome back! With New Years’ Eve right around the corner, I’m going to try to squeeze in some last minute outfit ideas! Hope you guys enjoy, and don’t forget to check out my first three ideas for more inspiration!

Shaggy Faux Fur Vest

I love faux fur vests because they look luxe and posh but are definitely affordable and guilt-free. They can keep you warm and score you major style points. For this look, I would look for one that has fur that is more hairy and flowy than clumpy, just because it makes it stick out more. I would also choose a lighter white or off-white to add an ethereal look to the ensemble.

Long Sleeve Crop Top

To keep this ensemble winter-appropriate but still cute and fresh, I would pair the vest with a long sleeved crop top in a dark color like maroon or black. This will create contrast with the vest but not steal any attention away from it.

Patchwork Skinny Jeans

To add to the cool, urban vibe of the outfit, I would pair this outfit with a pair of skinny jeans with patches and rips. It definitely adds some cool factor and street cred to your outfit, and keeps your outfit sleek and perfect for the season.

Shoes

To add some glam elements to this outfit, I would pair it with high heeled booties in a taupe or beige color. They add some height and high fashion to your outfit, and the neutral color ties the whole outfit together.

Accessories

To further add to the glam look, I would pair the outfit with a snakeskin clutch and a multilayer necklace. This will add some shine to your outfit, as well as some eye-catching details.

Winter Style: Holiday Party Look #3: Ripped Black Jeans


Hey, guys! Merry Christmas Eve to everyone celebrating today! Here’s another cool look for a holiday party! Hope you guys enjoy!

Ripped Black Jeans

As you guys may remember from my Winter Mood Board post, I am obsessed with ripped jeans! They’re so cool and they stand out so much. For this outfit, I like black ripped jeans because they’re sleeker and more high fashion-y. Also, it’s easier to make them look great for any occasion!

White Blouse

Pair the edgy, shredded jeans with something softer and lighter. A white or cream flowy blouse plays up the contrast perfectly and makes for a really standout ensemble.

Tan Booties

To keep your black jeans standing out, pair your outfit with tan booties. Tan is a neutral color, so it won’t distract from any part of your outfit.

Accessories

To finish off the outfit, I would pair it with a long, thin silver or gold necklace, a cuff in the same color, and a tan bag. This will add some needed shine and finish to your outfit. It will pull the whole thing together so that your outfit is fashionable and functional!

Winter Style: Holiday Party Look #2: Velvet Dress


Hey, everyone! Hope you’re all as excited for the holidays as I am, especially for the awesome outfit opportunities! Here’s a more posh, high fashion-y outfit for you all to try! Hope you like it!

Velvet Dress

Velvet is such a luxurious looking and feeling fabric, but it’s generally affordable, so it’s a great way to take an outfit to the next level. Look for a short dress in a stand-out color since it will be the focus of your ensemble.

Faux Leather Moto Jacket

To keep up the luxe look at a lower cost, pair the velvet dress with a simple, black faux leather moto jacket. The simplicity of the cut and style of the jacket will allow the velvet dress to take center stage, but the faux leather will make you look effortlessly cool and fun!

Shoes

To make this outfit more urban, fun and fashion-y, I would pair it with a pair of printed or brightly colored high top sneakers. They’re comfy and quirky, and add a bit of interest to your outfit!

coral high tops

Accessories

To finish up this outfit, I would add some popping accessories. I would start off with sheer black tights to keep your leg warms, and then a pair of black knee high socks scrunched down to just above your shoes for a fashion forward look. Feel free to substitute something more colorful or quirky for either, or to forgo one or both. I would then choose an eye-catching black and white headband and put my hair in a high bun so it can take center stage. I would also pair it with a pair of glitzy, dangling earrings in a neutral for a bit of dazzle and glamour. Lastly, I would pair the whole ensemble with a small, quirky wallet or clutch to add to the playful feel of the outfit.

Winter Style: Holiday Party Look #1: Lace Dress


Happy Holidays everyone! I love how festive the holiday season is, and all the great clothes I can wear! Here’s a fun and festive outfit that’s great for a holiday get-together!

Lace Dress

I’ve been loving lace this season: It’s classy and pretty, but can also be totally fun. For this look, I would look for something that’s more loose fitting as opposed to a super tight bodycon dress: It just makes the look feel more festive and classic. I also love something in a festive color like burgundy or crimson, but a classic color like black or champagne is great too.

black lace babydoll dress

Sheer Black Stockings

It’s freezing in the winter, so stockings are a must to keep your legs warm! Something in a sheer black works well with your dress, but doesn’t distract from it. Make sure the stockings are plain and not lace or dotted so they don’t clash with your dress!

black stockings

black tights sears

Shoes

For this outfit, I would go with a black suede bootie. Whether you choose something heeled or flat is your choice, just find something that’s chic and comfortable!

black suede wedges

black suede booties

Accessories

I think this outfit calls for some shiny, glitzy silver accessories, like a headband and a cuff. I’d also pair it with a bright purse. If you’re not feeling the headband, I think this outfit would also look adorable with a black fedora.
