Lovely in Leather

Top: H&M   Skirt: STEPS   Heels: Christian Louboutin   Necklace: BaubleBar   Pyramid bracelet: Tj Maxx Watch: GUESS

Hi everybody!

This skirt was a Christmas gift from my wonderful mom. It is a camel leather skirt with gold pyramid details around the waist. The white buttoned up blouse compliments the skirt nicely and gives a classy feel to the outfit. The gold accessories that I have on correlate with the gold detailing on the waist. The pyramid bracelets and the pyramid detailing correspond with each other. I am loving my new BaubleBar necklace gifted to me from my mom with my blog name on it. It truly is a unique way to advertise my blog anywhere I go. I highly recommend you all buying one because it gave me a sense of pride to be wearing my blog name.
Lastly, my trusty Christian Louboutin heels enhance the elegance of this look.

Thank you for reading!

Christmas Eve Afternoon

Hi everybody!

Merry Christmas Eve! Tomorrow is the big day where my family gets together to have a big Christmas brunch and open presents together. The true reason for me is to gather around with my loved ones to reflect on why we are all here and to realize how great Jesus' love for us is.

Have a merry Christmas and stay beautiful,

Mature Yet Youthful Fashion

                           Blazer: Monteau via Marshalls   Jeans: Abercrombie   Heels: GUESS   Necklace: Vintage   Bracelet: Ily Couture

Hi everybody!

Today I feel like Kate Middleton's mini me with this blazer on. The blazer creates maturity and elegance, two of the styling characteristics that Kate Middleton shows off so well.

I wanted to create a more youthful look and tone down the maturity that this blazer has. So, I added a bright color underneath the blazer. The color blocking heels also adds a fun twist and correlates with the red top. The white jeans are very youthful as well.

Happy Holidays and stay beautiful,

Little White Dress


                               Dress: White House Black Market   Heels: Zara   Ring: Kay Jewelers

Hi everybody!

This elegant White House Black Market cocktail dress is a holiday must for its lace detailing and hourglass shape. This dress is full of wonderful details that elevate the sophistication, but also add casualness to the outfit. I love the pockets because it makes the dress a little more modern and a bit more casual. Also, the belt is a great addition to this look. The more sophisticated part of this dress is the lace detailing. The lace pattern is much like brocade and very whimsical. The pearls accentuate the classiness of this look. Lastly, my black Zara heels coincide with the black lace on the dress.
Overall, this outfit will fit perfectly into a holiday party, especially if you are the hostess.

Stay beautiful,

Cold Days and Cozy Sweaters

Sweater: Marshalls   Jeans: Abercrombie     Ankle boots: Cole Haan   Rings: Kay Jewelers

Hi everybody!

Today's outfit keeps me warm on these chilly winter days. The thick off the shoulder sweater is a fashionable way to bundle up this season. The ribbed design and charcoal grey color are trendy. Also, the sweater is form fitting, which is a huge plus because most sweaters make us look wider.
The white jeans against the grey sweater create a beautiful contrast that would look really nice beside a fireplace and a cup of hot chocolate. ;) Black booties and a black quilted bag complete the winter look, while complementing the dark color of the sweater. Lastly, silver rings were perfect for peeking out of this knitted garment.

Stay beautiful,

Holiday Wish List

Pink Zara Jacket: Fash Boulevard

Coat: Delias

                                                      Mini Louboutin Chocolate High Heels: Madame Chocolat
Cheeky Prints Purse: Kate Spade
Kiss Me Tonight Lip Gloss: Philosophy via Macys

                                                        Guilty Passions Holiday Mini Kit: MAC

Hi everybody!

While I have been sick at home, I have been creating my holiday wish list. During this time of year it always gets hectic at my house between the decorating and the shopping. But, I'm always happy when winter comes around to see all the beautiful decorations around town and to bundle up in my favorite coats for the frigid weather outside. Below are my holiday cravings:

1. Oh Anna, do you ever give your readers less than perfect outfits? I think not. The Fash Boulevard blogger posted this coat today. Although, Zaras does not carry this coat anymore, the beautiful pastel color instantly caught my eye and I just had to share this with you guys.

2. The wool pea coat from Delias is just so adorable. The red color gets me in the mood for the holidays. Also, the wool will keep me warm from the freezing winter weather.

3. For only $25, you can get Christian Louboutin heels, in the form of chocolates that is. The glittery heels are great for holiday parties and are very fashionable. There is a choice of solid milk chocolate or solid dark chocolate and a choice of the color glitter you want sprinkled onto the shoe.

4. The Kate Spade Cheeky Prints purses are too funny. They are different types of purses that have a cute statement on them with a hashtag underneath it. This coin purse says 'Spend it all in one place #CHACHING' This a fun way to play with your wardrobe and hold your change.

5. Philosophy's 'Kiss Me Tonight' lip gloss keeps one's lips smooth and soft. The formula found in this lip gloss soothes dry lips and keeps them luscious.

6. The new Guilty Passions Holiday mini kit from MAC is extremely convenient because each tiny kit has a variety of different colors of eye shadow or lip gloss. From blue hues to gold hues your eyes will pop out at any holiday party with this mini make up kit.

Hope you enjoyed this segment. Enjoy your holiday shopping!

Stay beautiful,

Festive in Faux Fur

                            Faux fur vest: Delias   Blouse: H&M    Skirt: Hollister   Heels: Christian Louboutin      
Hi everybody!

Tis the season to wear faux fur! This hot trend is always wonderful for the holiday season for its coziness and for its chic and luxurious appearance. The versatile style can be shown on scarves, boots, vests, etc. This particular faux fur vest is lovely because I love the shade of brown that it has. Some faux fur vests are grey, others black, and of course others are the classic brown color. I prefer the faux fur vests that have short faux because it slims the body because it doesn't have such a full appearance.
The skirt I paired the vest with is seasonal because its such a vibrant color and contrasts with the texture and color of the vest. The flow of this Hollister skirt is light and fun.
The crisp white buttoned up blouse under my faux fur vest assists the faux fur vest to pop out of the outfit.
My Christian Louboutin heels are classy and elegant, just right for this outfit.

Thank you for reading! It means so much to me to read all of your beautiful comments.

Stay beautiful,

Holiday Bandage Dress


                             Dress: French Connection   Heels: GUESS   Jewelry: Vintage

Hi everybody!

Happy Monday!

With the holidays so near I am starting to decorate my house. Right now it's a bit messy with all of the boxes, but by this weekend I'll be prepped for the holidays.

For today's outfit I wore a bandage dress that is great for this upcoming season. The formfitting dress is wonderful for those holiday parties that many of you will be attending ( I will be attending one next week). My peep-toe shoes sparkle and are oh-so-glamorous. This outfit needed dainty accessories that did not overpower the dress, but added a bit of classy sparkle here and there. So, my diamond tennis bracelet and silver necklace and earrings work perfectly. The sock bun hairstyle is sophisticated and elegant, which tie into the classy theme of this outfit.
If you would like to learn how to create a sock bun, I found this simple tutorial on Youtube. Click here to view the video if you'd like.
