Happy Holidays

necklace&vest: Madewell; Shirt: J. Crew; Pants: Urban Outfitters; Shoes: Jessica Simpson

Christmas is my favorite time of year and as you can see we are slowly starting to sneak some gifts under the tree (although we usually wait until the night before xmas so no one peeks lol). I hope you all have a wonderful holiday season full of love, family, and joy!

Went to my first holiday party of the year with my two girls Ki and Coco. Open bar=lifelong memories :)

I decided to go with something festive and bright so I paired a gold sequin top with magenta cropped pants. These are two of my favorite items in my wardrobe so I am sure you will see them again on the blog, probably in a "two ways" piece coming soon.

Blazer: Urban Outfitters; Necklace:Madewell; All else H&M

Sweatshirt&shirt: Madewell; Pants: H&M; Boots:Forever 21

I'm usually not a fan of layering short sleeve pieces over longer ones (it's very circa 2002 to me), but I was recently browsing one of my favorite blogs Atlantic-Pacific and was inspired to try. What do you think?

Two Ways: Purple Sweater

I have decided to start doing posts called "Two Ways" that will show you how to take a basic item and wear it multiple ways. Before buying any item, I try to think of at least two outfits I can wear it with. In my opinion, buying a piece of clothing and wearing it the exact same way every time is a waste of money! In an effort to save some cash and flex your styling skills try pairing a staple item with something unexpected.

LOOK #1:

The bright color of the sweater keeps the look feminine and exciting.

Sweater: J. Crew; Shirt: Madewell; Shorts: H&M; Oxfords:Aldo; Tights: Hue

LOOK #2:

Break out of the typical "sweater, jeans, and boots" rut by adding a pair of colored denim and a funky necklace (although if you are wearing a bright color on top I wouldn't suggest also doing that on the bottom).

Sweater:J. Crew; Necklace: J.Crew; Jeans: Forever21; Boots: Steve Madden

I came across this light denim vest and just had to have it. It's such a great way to break up boring sweaters in the cold weather. Plus, it looked great with the outfit I had on at the moment.

Vest, sweater, necklace:Madewell; Skirt:Forever 21: Boots: Spring shoes

A closer pic:

I  used to be totally against denim pieces because I thought they were only for cowboys and old ladies but now I can't get enough. Madewell has an exceptional selection of denim button downs that range from relaxed to tailored. There is something for everyone!

 And if the night wasn't great already, the bday girl snapped a pic with her fave artist at the end of the night. Happy birthday indeed :)

Rock the Bells

Sorry I have been slacking on my posts! I have been busy with work. But, this weekend I took a break and headed to New York for the Rock the Bells concert.

All the artists were amazing but my personal favorite was rapper Childish Gambino (also known as comedian Donald Glover from NBC's Community). His set was energetic and nothing short of perfection.

For those of you who are unfamiliar with his music:

Also I wouldn't be me if I didn't do a little shopping while in NY. I got this sparkly embroidered jacket from  1 of a Find Vintage Shop in Brooklyn. I loved it so much I wore it out the next night.

Romper: Urban Outfitters; Shoes: Bakers

I have always been a fan of Missoni's printed knitwear and I am so excited to hear that they will be launching an affordable line with target later this month. Everyone should go out and grab a piece from the iconic line!
