Christmas Carols

Hi everyone, welcome back!  I love this casual outfit for the laid back holiday activities, whether they be caroling (I hope some places still do that!) or an easy at home gathering. I bought this Old Navy sweater in orange back in the fall (see it here) and I loved it so much that I went back for this Christmas hue!  These earmuffs are going to be perfect for keeping my ears warm without giving my hat hair!

Cozy Holiday Style

Hey everyone, happy Monday!  I hope you all had a great weekend.  We got quite a bit of snow in Mass, so I’m finally ready to start putting more serious thought into my outerwear options for the next few months.

This shearling jacket from Old Navy reminds me of one my mom used to own.  It’s in the same classic fabrics, but with an updated moto silhouette.  And how cute is this Barbour beanie?!

Christmas Dress With An Edge

Hi everyone, happy Monday!  A few weeks ago, I took a poll on my Instagram asking what you all wanted to see more of this holiday season – casual or fancy outfits – and formal outfits took the win, so I started off with two velvet dresses in this post and a velvet tulle combo in this one!  There will be plenty of casual outfits to come (plus this green sweater which pairs great with jeans!), but today I wanted to do a bit of a crossover between the two.  If you have a formal event coming up but feel most comfortable in a moto jacket or stacked heels, this is the perfect marriage between the two.  I found this gorgeous lace dress at Marshall’s, combined with TJMaxx, they are my two favorite places to find dresses – whether it’s for graduation season or the holidays!  It is absolutely perfect on it’s own – I love the high neckline and lace sleeves – but to add a personal touch to it I think a black faux leather jacket and peep toe booties are the perfect way to add a little edge to an otherwise formal piece!

Thank you so much for reading, if you have any occasions coming up you want me to style an outfit for leave me a comment on this post!  Have a great week!

Holiday Velvet with Old Navy

Hey everyone, welcome back!  Today I’m so excited to talk about holiday’s velvet trend!  I have strong flashbacks to Christmas of 1997 when my cousins and I were all decked out in velvet dresses holding our American Girl Dolls, but it’s hard to deny the festive warmth that velvet holds!  Old Navy has some amazing velvet pieces, from dressed to camisoles and even pants!

This first outfit is perfect for a casual way to embrace velvet.  With a statement dress like this one, it’s easy to keep accessories to a minimum.  I went with my classic gold jewelry and threw on my leopard heeled booties to create a more fun and quirky outfit.

The second outfit I decided to lean in to the shorter hemline and go for a longer and sleeker look by adding in my classic black mules.  I love the faux wrap detail this red dress has, and you really can’t go wrong with red and velvet for the holidays!

Outfit One – Dress: Old Navy | Booties: Banana Republic
Outfit Two – Dress: Old Navy | Mules: Express

Thanks so much for stopping by!  I hope you all have a great day!

Festive Flair

IMG_5430IMG_5473IMG_5421IMG_5441IMG_5423IMG_5481

Hey everyone, happy Monday!  I hope you all had a great Thanksgiving Weekend!  In case you missed it, I launched the first set of my gift guides on Saturday, and also wrote about the perfect holiday gift I found for B here!

Today, since the holiday season is in full swing, I wanted to incorporate small amounts of festive flair without feeling overwhelmed by it (since I can hardly believe November is almost over!)  The bright green of the sweater and the bow detail on the back make it perfect for a slow embrace of the Christmas spirit!
