What to Wear Now and Later: Holiday Style

wear-now-and-later-december-2016

This time of year you hear so many women talk about never knowing what to wear for this and that holiday party. Lots of times they have something they could wear in their closet, but of course, we all like to treat ourselves to something new that just makes us feel good.

That is why I love this red swing dress from H&M. It is EXTREMELY versatile and can go from day to evening easily, which is why I feel it’s a great choice for both your Christmas day outfit and your New Years Eve look.

How understatedly chic is this sweater?!

How to Wear It Now & Later: Topshop Pretty Collar Shift Dress

wear-now-and-later-mid-sept-2016

I ADORE a good collar shift dress, and this one by Topshop is not only “pretty” but also very versatile.

The white collar tends to scare most people off in thinking that this dress can be worn in cooler months. Don’t let the collar fool you, this dress can still be a true adversary on your quest to look ladylike and chic when it gets colder out. Just pair it with a classic style purse and some sophisticated booties (along with some fleece lined tights for all you cold blooded people out there), and you’ve got a great look!

Happy Friday!

Wednesday Want: Leopard Print Tie-waist Skirt

Wednesday Want--Leopard Tie Knot Skirt

As mentioned in my previous post, there are so many things I’m loving at J Crew right now. Not only do the majority of these pieces work for my petite yet curvy body, but they’re also versatile. What a win win!

I love how J Crew paired their tie waist skirt with a khaki shirt and pink coat, giving it a safari inspired vibe that’s also quite feminine. Personally, I’d tone down the print of the skirt by pairing it with a chambray button down and some black booties.

However, you can honestly put just about any colored top with this skirt as leopard print is basically a neutral in its own right.

How to Wear It Now and Later: J Crew Ruffle-Sleeve Top

 

Wear now and later--Sept 2016

I am loving so many pieces by J Crew right now, but this ruffle sleeve top definitely tops them all (pun intended). It is a top that can easily be paired with a jean, skirt, or nice pant and also is a great transition piece.

For warmer weather (like what we currently still have), I love it with a white jean, cute heel, and dainty shoulder bag. When the weather starts to cool down a bit, it can easily be tucked into a corduroy skirt and paired with a fun animal print mini saddle bag and ankle booties. Also, if you are someone whose body temperature is cooler than average you can easily throw on a pair of cute fleece lined tights with the second look to stay warm.

Hope y’all enjoy this new series!

Wednesday Want: J Crew Signet Bag

Wednesday Want_J Crew Signet Bag

 

I’ve been looking for a bag for the upcoming Fall/Winter season and I’m loving this new cross body from J Crew. I personally love cross body bags, as they’re very versatile and also travel really well.

What I also love about this bag in particular is its price tag of $128, which is quite reasonable given the fact that it’s made of Italian leather.

Comfy and Casual for the 4th

2016 4th of july outfit

Here in Texas, the heat index is hitting the triple digits and there’s (of course) some lingering humidity.

So let’s be realistic, most Texas women (myself included) will not be dressed to the nines this 4th of July. Actually, I don’t think I’ve ever seen someone dressed up that much on this particular holiday as that’s just not what happens.

One of the reasons I’ve always loved celebrating the 4th, besides hanging out by the water, the food, and the fireworks, of course, is that it’s such a casual holiday. A holiday that’s really just about relaxing and feeling good as we celebrate our day of independence.

Wishing y’all a happy 4th!
