It might be my favorite time of year, at least my favorite time to be a blogger. I love helping people get ready for their holiday functions because there are so many!
For the next few weeks, I’ll do my best to give you two different outfit options on things you may have in your closet – because they are in mine! I’ll try to cover all of your holiday activities- work parties, programs, church services, shopping, even volunteering!
Here is the first look in this series-
Here is a little red sweaterdress I have in my closet. You may not have red, but I bet you have a sweaterdress. I wore this dress for both volunteering during the day and to a dress down work party at night- in a snowstorm.
I wore the same tall boots for both, I swapped out the plain black leggings from the day for velvet leggings for the party. And instead of just a watch for day, I added some fun bangles for night.
It was a warm and cozy look!
Have you seen any Target commercial this fall? Buffalo check (the big square check pattern) is everywhere. And it isn’t just on clothing…it’s everywhere for the home too!
Speaking of Target, I’m SERIOUSLY loving their Mossimo jeans lately. It’s pretty much all I wear. They are affordable ($28- yes!), stretchy and comfortable and…they have low back pockets. Which for you JLo blessed girls like me means they equal flattering!
I know this year’s burning question is, are skinny jeans out? Well, according to New York they are. But out here in the sticks, it’s going to take some time to trickle down. I see the flares coming back for the younger set. What cut do I buy? Straight. I love them. They are more forgiving than the skinny and I can still wear them with my boots and booties. Roll ’em up and they are great capris. And when I get a stain on them, I don’t feel the need to freak out. Don’t forget to watch for sales where they are buy one, get one 50% off!
How to wear the buffalo check without feeling like a lumberjack? I recommend jewelry. It’ll add some instant femininity. Unless you really are working. Then you should probably just throw on a ball cap. 🙂
