Professional Sequins

 
 
Sometimes I over think all of my office wear.  Is it too pink?  Too girly?  Are skinny jeans okay?... only on Casual Friday?  I have only worn sequins to work once, they were on my collar, so it was very subtle.  I think it is definitely okay to wear sequins to the office, especially if you will be participating in something like the annual holiday party.  A simple way to tone them down is by layering with your typical office pieces, such as a crisp white oxford and a neutral blazer.  If you plan on trying out sequins at the office, I just suggest you leave the tulle skirt at home ;)

Chunky Layers


Hello ladies, today I am sharing a few pieces that I have had in my closet for a long time, excluding these booties.  I bought the red purse over a year ago when I placed an online order at Forever 21, I never realized how much I would use it, especially around the holidays, until about a month ago.  I just always keep reaching for it; I really think it brings the entire outfit together..

Pink for Winter


One of my favorite things to buys family and friends for the holidays is cold weather gear.  Old Navy is always a great place to find these chilly staples at an affordable price.  The prices were so great, I had to pick up these gloves and this hat for myself.  I love how the pink can brighten up any dreary day.

P.S. I'm starting to wear pink way more often and I love it!

Casual Holiday Look

A few things about this outfit that I just can't get enough of: these boots (my new favorite black boots), this flannel, and these pearls.  Like I said in my last post, I just naturally love casual clothes and this outfit is no exception.  The flannel is now officially the warmest flannel I own, it's incredible thick.  I wore this outfit to do more Christmas shopping, but it would also be fitting for a casual holiday dinner date.

Easy Chic Work Look + Giveaway Reminder!!


Professional attire has always been a struggle for me, I just naturally love casual clothes.  A great way to change a work dress is by layering. You can either wear a collared shirt under or a blazer over or even wear both for more warmth.  

Last night I watch the VS Fashion Show, it was stunning as always.  Taylor Swift seriously looked like she could be on of the angels, the black lace outfit she wore for "Style" was my favorite.

It was so windy when we took these photos, my hair was all over the place!

Gift for the Bestie: Under $50

Untitled #49


When it comes to buying gifts for your girlfriends it can add up if you have a handful on your bestie list.  So being aware of your budget is extremely important, especially with your family, significant other and their family... it can really add up to say the least.

My advice is mix both high and low end items, for example maybe you want to buy your friend three small gifts, stick with something high end but on the smaller, like a Mac lipstick and then include cute Old Navy gloves and maybe even a DIY monogram mug or makeup brush holder.  I love the idea of personalized gifts for the holidays (basically anything monogrammed) and cold weather gear is always a good idea. 

Keeping in mind your budget during the holidays with help keep you stress free and able to enjoy this special time with friends and family.  I know I feel much better when I keep myself in check.

I just realized the Kate Spade phone case was also on my wish list, apparently I have a thing for it and think my friends would too ;)  Good luck shopping!

The Perfect Poncho Sweater

 

If you guys watched my November favorites video (posted yesterday) you know that I could not get enough of this lightinthebox poncho sweater.  Well I saw a similar version on Forever 21's website that was under $25, so I made sure to order myself one.  Unfortunately it sold out almost immediately!  Keep your eye on this item, Forever 21 tends to restock their popular items that sellout.  I have also linked a handful of similar ones below.  Hopefully you guys can snag one you like, because they are so helpful to quickly create the perfect casual fall/winter outfit.  You can layer pieces under like I did  or wear with colored skinny jeans and booties.


Poncho Sweater: Forever 21, Similar, Similar, Similar
Turtleneck: Old Navy, Similar, Similar
Boots: GoJane, Similar, Similar, Similar
Bracelets: JCrew Factory (on major sale!), Local Boutique, Similar
