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?

There I go wearing black again! I don’t know why, but I have always gravitated toward black when I’m buying clothes. The choker trend is something that I said I have been wearing a lot lately and when I saw this top on Lulu’s I knew I needed it. It is really great quality and I love how it gives you the choker look without actually having to wear one. I can tell that I will be wearing this top often, it is so soft! It also comes in grey, I may just have to order that one as well 😉

I recently got these Jeffrey Campbell booties and I think I love them even more than I thought I was going to. The heel is thick and not super high, which makes them really comfortable and super easy to walk in. And can we just talk about this lace up detail? In love!

My sunglasses are Quay Australia and have quickly become one of my favorite sunglasses designers.  A huge plus that they are really affordable, most are in the $50 range. This line has gotten a lot of recognition lately and it seems to be hard to get your hands on certain styles before they’re sold out again. This particular pair is called ‘Needing Fame’ and is an aviator style.

My bracelet is from Boho Betty, a jewelry company I recently discovered. I did a blog post about them on Monday, you can find it here. They have some really cool pieces and if you go to their website and use code ‘diariesofdanielle’ you get 20% off your order!

I hope everybody has a great Wednesday! I can’t wait to watch the season finale of The Hollywood Medium tonight, does anybody else find Tyler Henry so intriguing?! I seriously can’t get enough!
