I actually can’t believe that holiday party time is back again… I mean, how has it been a year since the LAST time we did this? BUT on the bright side, I’m really excited about all of the holiday treats, drinks and presents! Holiday parties are the perfect excuse to dress up and get fancy (or go the other direction completely and wear an ugly sweater…both are great). This year, I’m opting to be EXTRA at my holiday parties. I don’t want to wear the same red or black dress I’ve had in my closet for years. This season has so many cute trends going on that it’s pretty much impossible to not want to buy something new and amazing, right?
I found this velvet jumpsuit at Express and instantly fell in love. I mean, LOOK at it! Isn’t it a dream?? I think I was actually drooling when I picked it up and brought it to the dressing room. Simple, but also completely over the top, in my opinion, on top of being something I normally wouldn’t wear. But when else can you pull off a velvet jumpsuit with a super low v-neck? Just casually wear it to the office or to get groceries? Umm, no. Please don’t. But Christmas parties? ABSOLUTELY!
I tend to stay inside the lines, if you know what I mean. Anyone else? I mean, I have my ways of doing things: I like particular foods (and hate others), I only do my hair about three different ways, I have a certain style I tend to lean to most- comfortability. Nothing wrong with that, right? Well no, but I think it’s good to sometimes push ourselves a little more. Pushing ourselves a little more than we want to can lead to awesome things.
There is something about ruffles on clothes that makes me feel like I’m 8 years old all over again, but at the same time, feeling super fresh for spring! Ruffles are a fun detail that have EXPLODED this year… on everything– tops, skirts, handbags…
I stumbled across this Zara top when I was in NYC a month ago and although I didn’t NEED it, I needed it… you know what I mean?
I basically LIVE in jeans and t-shirts. It’s the easiest, no brainer outfit for everyday. Lucky for me (and all of us) t-shirts are not only comfortable, but they’re trendier more now than EVER! Which means, they’re pretty much appropriate for every occasion, right?! Haha, ok, not really, but you get it.
I feel like on top of it being a trend, you can use graphic t’s to share your personality, and essentially speak your mind. T-shirts can say what you want to say, you know what I mean?
This gorgeous maxi dress was a bebe sample sale find (perks of the job) and I am obsessed with it. Although summer is nearly over, a maxi dress can easily be a great transition piece into fall. Add some heels and a leather jacket, and you’re ready for cooler weather! A printed maxi is perfect for so many occasions- outdoor parties, weddings, dinner with friends, etc.
