Holiday Outfit Ideas

Whether you are attending a holiday party or you’re simply spending time with family and friends like me, you may be unsure about what to wear. I know that for some people, the idea of dressing up can be a bit stressful, especially for bigger events, so today, I am here to help! I have put together three different holiday outfits to wear for any occasion! Whether you would describe your fashion sense as “casual” or “classy”, these three outfits should spark some inspiration!

This first outfit is for those of you who prefer a more classic look. You can never go wrong with black and white. I think that these two colors always look good together, and this outfit may be my favorite of the three! I first took some simple black pants and paired them with a long sleeved black top with pearl accents. I then took a white peacoat to wear on top. Lastly, I wore my black knee-high boots (which you will see me wear quite often in the winter time).

Next up, I have an outfit that is for those of you who don’t really love to dress up and prefer a more casual or comfy look. First, I took a pair of dark wash jeans and paired them with a simple white sweater. If you are a fan of color, and you want to stand out a bit more or feel more festive, a red or green sweater would look just as nice! I then took a pair of faux leather boots to match the outfit. With a simple outfit like this one, I recommend accessorizing with a shiny pair of earrings or a nice necklace. You can also add a scarf to the outfit for a cozier feel.

And lastly, this outfit is for those of you who like to have a bit of fun with fashion, and would describe your style as “girly” or “trendy”. This is a beautiful red off the shoulder dress with a scalloped neckline. I wore this dress a couple years ago for Christmas Eve and I still adore it to this day. I paired it with the same knee-high boots from the first outfit!

Whenever I want to wear dresses or skirts in the winter, I’ll typically pair them with my knee-high boots. Since it can get pretty cold where I live at times, I always wear knee-high socks with my boots to stay warm. Even though it’s not much, it still helps (plus, I don’t spend a ton of time outside in the winter anyway, so when I do, I bundle up and rush inside!)

I hope that these outfits gave you a bit of holiday fashion inspiration, and I hope that these tips were helpful! And if you still want to wear sweatpants and hoodies instead, trust me, I feel you! Let me know which outfit is your favorite in a comment below. Thank you so much for reading!

OOTD: Thanksgiving 2019

Happy Thanksgiving to all of my American readers/followers! I hope that you are having a beautiful day full of family and good food! Today I wanted to share my Thanksgiving OOTD (outfit of the day) with you! I know to some it may seem silly to dress up when you are only going to be in your dining room all day, but still, I enjoy dressing up and looking put together all of the time!

This outfit of the day is going to be pretty simple. I recently purchased this jumpsuit from Lulus.com (a new favorite store of mine)! This is the “Lace and Lies Terra Cotta Crochet Lace Cropped Jumpsuit”. I purchased this jumpsuit for $16.00! When I was online shopping for some holiday outfits, I happened to come across this jumpsuit and I knew I had my Thanksgiving outfit. Not only is this outfit comfortable for me to lounge around in while waiting for Thanksgiving dinner, but it is also fashionable and perfect for the end of fall!

As someone who has an absolutely terrible shopping addiction, it is important for me to find stores that have affordable yet stylish pieces, and Lulus.com has quickly become one of my favorite places to shop! This is where I bought the “Someday Swoon Royal Blue Embroidered Midi Dress from my “End-of-Summer Blues OOTD”! I also purchased a dress that I will share with you on Christmas Eve, so stay tuned for that!

On Thanksgiving Day, my family always wakes up to watch the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade. I will usually eat a very small breakfast and we won’t eat very much at all until the dinner is ready! I spend Thanksgiving with my immediate family. I have a pretty big family, so they are all I need! I love being able to spend a day at home, just relaxing and eating some good food with the people I love the most! (Not going to lie, I am so excited for Black Friday shopping too!)

I am grateful for my family, my friends, my health, my education, and of course all of you! I really appreciate those of you who read my blog posts and follow me! It means so much and I love being able to write and share what’s in my heart with the world. I hope that I can continue to inspire you and help you on your journey to confidence!

Thank you for reading! Leave me a comment below and tell me what you are thankful for, and what your favorite Thanksgiving food is (mine is mashed potatoes and we make a delicious meat stuffing every year)!

How to Transition Your Wardrobe From Summer to Fall

Today I wanted to share a few tips on how to transition your wardrobe from summer to fall! I am so over the heat at this point and I am ready to start busting out my sweaters and knee high boots, but it is still around 80-90 degrees where I live (it is cooling down a bit though)! I decided to share three different outfits to wear when it isn’t cool enough out for jackets and scarves, but it is just starting to cool off enough to take some of your staple fall pieces and incorporate them into your wardrobe!

If you haven’t been able to tell already from my ootd’s (outfit of the days), I love wearing dresses! If it is warm out, you will probably see me wearing a dress. I bought this dress almost a year ago and I am just now getting the chance to wear it. (I think it’s because I buy way too many clothes, but that’s beside the point!)

The first thing I do when summer ends, is I start incorporating fall colors into my wardrobe. By wearing colors like navy, olive, burgundy, maroon, or mustard, you will be using your wardrobe to transition into fall seamlessly.  The outfits will feel and look a lot more fall-like than if you were to wear bright colors like you would in the summertime! I paired this dress with my favorite ankle boots at the moment. Booties are the perfect addition any outfit in the fall, and they are a staple piece in my wardrobe for this season!

This second outfit is one of my favorites! I paired a very simple and basic piece with a fancier statement piece from my wardrobe. If you’re a fan of florals and you just don’t want to let them go, you can absolutely wear them all year round! If you want to wear florals in the fall, make sure that the colors of the clothing are seasonal. These wide leg capri pants are the perfect way to wear floral prints while still incorporating the color burgundy, which is my favorite fall color. They are also flowy and not made of an incredibly thick material, so I won’t get too hot! Underneath is just a simple black body suit. I wore these beautiful taupe heels as well. I also decided to wear a cardigan with this outfit because it gives the look a bit more of a cozier feel.

And lastly, I wanted to share a bit more of a casual outfit for those of you who aren’t very girly. If you wore crop tops all summer long and you want to wear them in the fall, you still can! I wore this olive green crop top with a pair of blue high waisted jeans. I also put on these brown heels that were in my “Coral Me crazy” ootd. If you want an even more casual look, swap out the heels for a stylish pair of sneakers! I took the same gray cardigan from the previous outfit and paired it with this outfit as well. I don’t own one at the moment, but I think that a brown fedora screams fall! A hat like this would be perfect with the navy blue dress or the outfit pictured below.

I hope that you found these tips helpful, and if you’re still dealing with 80-90 degree weather like me, don’t you worry, we will all be complaining about the cold weather soon enough! Thank you for reading!
