Fall Outfit :: Lace Dress & Ankle Booties

burgundy red and pink outfit combo
Hey guys! How is Thanksgiving next week, I am not worried though because I am not cooking. I’m really looking forward to a relaxing long weekend, this time of the year I am craving a break. This outfit is perfect for Thanksgiving dinner, a loose dress and ankle booties is a great combo. That little dress is under $40 and have enough room to hide your food baby. I love these boots as much as I expected to and they required zero break in period. They are pricey though but I found an identical dupe that will get you the exact same look. My only black pair of booties had to replaced this year so I decided to splurge on these because I know I will be wearing them to death. They are very good quality and if needed I will get them resoled in a couple of years.

Talking about splurging, what not to splurge on are these overpriced Gucci bags. I guarantee you the trend will die down in a couple of year and I don’t think they will have great resale value. If you still love the trend and want to try it, this Zara version for under $40 fits the bill. That bag is actually quite roomy and fits all my stuff, I love it. I’m sure it’s a lot colder for a lot of you so add black tight when recreating this look for extra coverage.

What I’m Wearing :: sunglasses – Ray Ban // earrings – Macy’s // bracelet – Alex & Ani // bracelet – J.Crew Factory // cardigan H&M // dress – c/o Charming Charlie // boots – Acne Studios (save version identical for a fraction of the price) // bag – Zara (under $40, love it great Gucci dupe)

Holiday Outfit :: Gold Metallic Cardigan & Spanx Leggings

NYE outfit with metallic top and leggings
Happy Friday ladies! I’m back with another party look because I had to share this gold metallic cardigan, it is so beautiful and quite heavy. I feel like these pictures doesn’t do it justice, I will post a little video on my Instagram today for a closer look. This is probably my favorite Holiday outfit so far, when I got this cardigan in the mail I swear I squealed like a little girl. It’s such a beauty that I just paired it with my favorite basic black faux leather leggings, pumps and bag. This may just be my New Year’s Eve party outfit.

Holiday Dressing :: Separates for Holiday Outfits

great separates to wear to holiday parties outfits with skirt top pants

Last week I shared some Holiday party friendly dresses but this week is all about separates. I love dresses but they are not always versatile, meanwhile you can create so many Holiday outfits with the right dressy separates.

Fun party tops are my favorites and I will be re-wearing the one featured in this post over and over.

A statement skirt is my jam, seriously you guys already know how much I love skirts. I wish I had a more fabulous life so I could justify buying some of these.

I really want a pair of high waist wide leg pants for going out, but haven’t found the right one for me yet. Here are some cute bottoms perfect to make a killer look.
