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?

Xoxo,

Christmas Gift Guide

I can not believe that Christmas is this weekend! I finally feel like I’m slightly ready, the house is looking pretty holiday ready. This year my family decided to do Christmas out here in Vegas, it’ll be the first holiday I’m hosting so I wanted everything to be perfect! The last couple of months have been crazy busy with lots of traveling around, so of course I’ve been running around last minute trying to get everything together.

I always feel like I’m throwing things together last minute, especially when it comes to gift buying. It’s definitely something that I need to work on so I don’t stress myself out so much! For those of you who are still searching for some last minute gift ideas, I rounded up some of my favorite items.

1. Angel by Thierry Mugler

This is one of my favorite perfumes! I’ve been wearing it for a while now, and I always get a ton of compliments.

10. Kate Spade Portable Charger

I’m always on my phone causing the battery to die so quickly. Having an external battery has really saved me, especially while I’m traveling.
