Switch Up Holiday Wear

Holiday-Wear Holiday-Wear-6 Holiday-Wear-2 Holiday-Wear-8 Holiday-Wear-5 Holiday-Wear-3 Holiday-Wear-7 Holiday-Wear-4
Blazer: Alice + Olivia, Jumpsuit: Forever21, Shoes: Brian Atwood {similar}, Ring: Alexis Bittar, Belt: Urban Outfitters {identical}, Earrings: Express.

Usually around this time, people start to panic over what to wear for the holiday parties popping up all over their calendars. From Thanksgiving, Christmas, and New Years, people are in a fret over finding the perfect holiday outfit. 

Typically, we think sequins and lace. But I ask: why be typical? Why wear the same festive frock that everyone else will show up in? Sure, I love myself a sparkly item as much as the next person, but holiday parties are a great time to show a little bit of individuality with a festive twist. I love the idea of wearing a jumpsuit. Jumpsuits are not only a fitting idea, but they are more comfortable and practical than some dresses out there. Not to mention, this jumpsuit even has pockets!

So as you begin searching for your party outfits for this upcoming holiday season, I challenge you to think outside the box and try something different. You’ll be sure to stand out at any holiday party!

The $300 Kate Spade Giveaway is also still going on!

Fur Coat

Fur-Coat-2 Fur-Coat-7 Fur-Coat-5 Fur-Coat-3 Fur-Coat-9 Fur-Coat-8 Fur-Coat-4 Fur-Coat
Coat: Forever21 {love, love, love}  , Pants: Zara, Shirt: H&M, Bag: c/o Paper Dolls UK, Boots: Alexander Wang, Lips: Mac 'Russian Red', Hat: Forever21.

I certainly got myself into a hairy situation when I bought this coat (pun-intended). What started as an impulse buy certainly turned into a slight panic attack when trying to figure out how to pair this wild animal of a coat with something. I have gained so much inspiration from some serious icons like Kate Moss, Miroslava Duma, and Alexa Chung, but being a little busty made me worry about looking too top heavy with all the texture. How could I wear a trendy winter staple without looking too bulky? Monocromatic! Creating an all-black look with the addition of a  white fur coat as the statement piece really tied everything together without looking unflattering. Who can say no to all black, anyways?

Also, I am really excited to announce that I am teaming up again with some of my favorite ladies across the US to bring you a killer giveaway!

Plaid Coat

Plaid-Coat Plaid-Coat-4 Plaid-Coat-7 Plaid-Coat-8 Plaid-Coat-3 Plaid-Coat-2 Plaid-Coat-10 Plaid-Coat-6
Coat: Zara {identical}, Jeans: Rich & Skinny, Shirt: H&M, Belt: J.Crew, Bag: Rebecca Minkoff (20% off), Rings: ASOS, Heels: Zara, Hat: Catarzi.

On my flight home this weekend back from a warm place, I had a conversation about Utah weather with an old lady next to me. "As soon as I pack my clothing away each season, the Utah weather always surprises me." she said. I responded to her, "We may get all four seasons, but you never know which one you are going to get each day."  We both chuckled and agreed over the bipolar weather we live in. Living in Salt Lake City, I have managed to acquire a collection of hats, coats, and layering pieces over the years. My plaid coat is the perfect go to for those brisk, early winter days while staying completely current with its classic plaid pattern. We all want solid coats but plaid really can make you stand out amongst a sea of neutrals.

Casual Joggers

Sweater: Forever21, Joggers: H&M {similar}, Heels: Sole Republic {identical}, Bag: Foley + Corinna, Earrings: House of Harlow 1960 (20% off), Sunglasses: Ray-Ban (20% off).

Casual Friday might be the perfect excuse for these joggers, a style made popular by men that has now been taken over by women. And honestly, I couldn't be more excited about it. Any opportunity I have to wear something comfortable, I will openly take. They look so perfect with a strappy heel and I couldn't feel any less guilty about how comfy they are either.
