Christmas in the Desert



Sweater: Missguided (Similar here)| Pants: AG Jeans (On sale!)| Heels: Steve Madden (Also on sale!)| Handbag: YSL| Choker: Nordstrom | Earrings: Lulus

Nothing screams Christmas more than a red sweater and velvet pants. My sister got into town yesterday, so naturally we decided to do some blog posts. We have always loved doing hair and makeup, picking out outfits and taking photos. With Christmas around the corner we went for a holiday inspired look!

This slouchy sweater is one of my faves, it can be worn slightly off one shoulder and I love the v in the back. This one from Missguided is currently sold out, but they have a ton of similar styles and Lulu’s has an almost identical one; all at great price points! These velvet pants from AG are perfect for the holiday season and are also super flattering. We paired them with a pair of classic black pumps and chain handbag for the ultimate holiday look.

The rest of my family is coming in at the end of the week, and I can’t wait to spend some quality time together. We haven’t all been together for a family vaca in a while, so I’m definitely looking forward to us all being together! We’re spending Christmas here in Las Vegas and then heading out to Arizona for New Years. What are your plans for the holidays?




Trench Coat + Crop Top



Jacket: Club Monaco | Top: Reformation (Similar here)| Pants: AG Jeans (Similar here & here) | Booties: Jeffrey Campbell | Earrings: Nadri

This past week I flew back home to Cleveland to spend time with my family. My sister was in town too, so we figured why not play dress up and shoot some blog worthy outfits!  It’s not very often that my whole family is together since my sister, brother and I are all  living in different parts of the country, so when we do get together I really cherish that quality time! It is definitely feeling like fall around here with the temps in the 50’s, which is a bit of a change for me considering fall in Las Vegas is still 80 degree weather!

One of my favorite things about fall is wearing a cute jacket to create a look. I love a trench coat, and this one from Club Monaco is so chic and soft. I love this khaki color, it makes it so easy to wear with so many different style outfits. It was definitely the perfect touch over this cropped blouse and silk pants. Everything about this outfit was so comfortable I pretty much felt like I was wearing my pajamas; cute and comfy…double plus!

What are some of your favorite style jackets for fall?






Dressing It Down


Jacket: Blank NYC (similar), Tee: Nordstrom, Jeans: AG, Sneakers: Converse, Sunglasses: Quay Australia, Wrap Bracelet: Boho Betty (Use code ‘diariesofdanielle’ for 20% off!), Necklace: Alex and Ani, Watch: Michael Kors

Happy Monday!! I hope everybody had a great weekend! Sorry I was a little MIA last week, we decided to take a last minute road trip to LA and Newport Beach, I was pretty much in heaven! I have always loved Southern California, and having lived there in the past it kind of feels like a second home to me. I’m going to do a post this week on our mini get away and some of my favorite spots!

I always enjoy putting on a pair of heels and dressing up for a night out, but I equally love a tee, denim and a pair of sneakers. When dressing down I still like to feel put together, adding a cute jacket and accessories. Back in August I did a post on this utility jacket that was a more dressed up look. That’s what I I love most about this utility jacket is that it’s so versatile and can be dressed up with a pair of heels or down with some great sneakers as well.

Two of my favorite and newest accessories are my Quay sunglasses and my wrap bracelet. I recently did a blog post on my bracelet, it’s from a company called Boho Betty. They have a variety of really amazing bracelets to choose from and at a discounted price using code ‘diariesofdanielle’.

Cardigans and Fall Tones





Cardigan: Nordstrom, Tank: Nordstrom, Denim: AG, Booties: Kristin Cavallari, Choker: Nordstrom, Handbag: Michael Kors

I love a good cardigan and a pair of skinny jeans, it’s one of the reasons I look forward to fall! I first saw this cardigan during the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale on Emily Gemma of The Sweetest Thing Blog (one of my favorite blogs!); I waited too long to snag it and it sold out. As soon as it came back in stock I ordered it, and I’m so glad I did because it is seriously so comfortable and warm, actually a lot warmer than I thought it would be. I’ve noticed this tan/gold color is popular this fall and I have to say I’m really loving it, it’s pretty much the perfect fall color!

I paired it with some AG jeans that I picked up a few weeks ago, they’re my first pair of AG and I’m in love! They have some stretch to them which makes them super comfortable, and I was in need of a dark blue pair. Based off my experience with this pair,  I will definitely be adding more AG to my denim collection.

The choker trend, at first I was a little skeptical (bringing back the 90’s!), but I have actually really grown to like them. I think they just add that little bit of an edge to any outfit.

What are some other fall trends you guys are loving? I hope everybody has a great start to their week!
