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,

Open Back + Boyfriend Jeans

Top: Express, Denim: Marciano (similar here), Booties: Steve Madden (on major sale!), Bag: Street Level, Necklace: Nordstrom, Earrings: Nordstrom

During the week you can either find me in athletic clothes or a comfortable top and denim. When I found this top at Express I fell in love because it was trendy and comfortable, and I knew I would get a lot of wear out of it. It’s part of the One Eleven collection at Express, I have some other clothing from that line and I love every single thing I have bought!  You really can’t go wrong, especially at that price point. This open back top is also the perfect dupe for the Free People Shadow top that was constantly sold out during the Nordstrom sale.

I paired it with my favorite slouchy boyfriend jeans and fringe booties. Thank goodness that boyfriend jeans are still in, because I don’t know what I’d do if they weren’t! On the days I don’t feel like putting on my tight skinny jeans, my boyfriend jeans are my go to. I got these a while back at Marciano, but I’m also really loving these from Blank NYC.

I hope everyone is having a great week so far, we’re almost to the weekend!! Does anybody have any exciting plans?

Fall Favorites: Utility Craze

Jacket: Blank NYC , Tank: Halogen, Denim: Express similar, Heels: Steve Madden, Choker: Top Shop, Handbag: Michael Kors, Sunglasses: Quay Australia Quay Australia

With fall right around the corner, I have begun stocking up on some fall pieces that I’ve had my eye on. I had been looking for a great utility jacket and came across this one from Nordstrom by Blank NYC. I have a faux leather moto jacket from them and love it, so I figured I couldn’t go wrong ordering this one. I’m so glad I did because I love it, plus it was under $100! It is so soft and is surprisingly heavier quality than I thought it would be. It has a loose relaxed fit, I’m wearing a size small.

I paired it with some high waisted denim, a black tank, and my ankle strap heels; perfect for a casual night out. I decided to give the choker trend a try and recently ordered some from Nordstrom as well. I got three different styles and I must say, I’m getting back into this 90’s vibe! I’ve been loving all of these fall trends, I can’t wait for the weather to start feeling a little more like fall, well as fall as it gets in Vegas!

Who else is loving utility jackets right now?!

Kimonos and Cutoffss

Kimono: Express, similar here, Tank top: Vince, Shorts: Nasty Gal similar here, Booties: Steve Madden, Handbag: Michael Kors, Sunglasses: Marc Jacobs

 

It has been really hot here in Las Vegas (I’m talking 100 degree temps!) which calls for shorts and tank tops. Cut off shorts have always been a favorite of mine, I just love the distressed look. To add a little style to the shorts and tank look, I like to add a light weight kimono over top. This one is shorter, but I also really like the longer kimonos with shorts. This kimono has really pretty lace detailing and is sheer so it’s been great for the warmer weather.

I have been wearing these booties a lot lately!  The heel height is perfect and I love the fringe details and block heel. They’re so versatile and I have been able to wear them with a lot of different outfits.

Who’s ready for the bachelorette tonight?! I can’t wait to see who will be going to the fantasy suites this week! Hope you all have a great Monday!
