One of the many reasons I love the holidays is all of the festive outfits. I know there are lots of holiday parties and events around this time of year so I wanted to put together an easy look that you can wear for many occasions. I wore something very similar to this for a nice Christmas dinner recently.

Unfortunately I could not find this blouse to link up since I got it last year after Christmas from Zara. Some other fun options for tops to go with this look are here, here, and here. Outfits like this are so much fun because color gets brought into the ensemble with the details. Since both my top and skirt are solid colors, this gave me the ability to have fun with the details. That means a bold lip color (MAC– “Captive”), statement clutch and jewelry! Very rarely will you find me without color in my outfit so if it’s not in the actual outfit you bet you will find it in the details! Adding in pops of color to your outfit can really make a difference in the overall appeal of an outfit. One of the best compliments I have received so far was from a coworker that told me I was her style inspiration because I always added color into my wardrobe and she wanted to start doing the same. I love when I can help someone else dress better, and overall make them feel better about their outward appearance! 🙂
Happy Holidays! Only 3 more sleeps until Santa comes!
On the weekends there is a 99% chance you can find me in a graphic tee, and we will raise that to 100% if I’m going to brunch on Sunday because I have so many cute brunch tees! If I am being honest, most of the time that I wear a graphic tee I throw on blue jeans, converse, and my hair into a top knot because it is just so comfy. There are definitely many ways to dress up a graphic tee as well and I plan on doing another post soon on how to “dress up” a graphic tee different ways. My friend Margret (from Style The Girl) and I met up for crepes at Sweet Paris in Rice Village. For all of you that do not know me I have a serious crepe addiction. Sadly its actually one of the only foods that I can make but I just LOVE them! Do these pictures not make you want to just eat a crepe?!

My obsession with graphic tees totally stems from Target. They have the best selection that I have seen so far and for every single occasion! Plus you can’t beat their prices! I don’t think I have paid more than $15 dollars for a single one of my shirts from there. I know they are trendy but they are just so darn cute and comfy, not to mention the easiest thing to throw on with jeans on the weekend! Another good place to find graphic tees is on Etsy. They have EVERYTHING! Any quote that you want on a shirt, they have got it for you.
Happy Christmas week guys! 🙂
I can’t help but smile because it’s the weekend and we are officially less than a week away from Christmas!! I hope all of you lovelies have a great time off from the hustle and bustle and can put your feet up. I really should take my own advice on that one 🙂
Poncho (similar) // Shoes (similar) //Jeans // Clutch // Hat // Necklace
Can you tell we danced in the rain a bit getting these pictures in?! My hat is proof of it! A cold front blew through Houston and I immediately pulled out this cute poncho that is more like a blanket because it is so soft! All I did was throw on a casual black top and jeans and let the poncho do the talking for this outfit. I dressed the outfit up a bit more with a winter hat, booties and accessories. I picked up these cute, gold bracelets at the Houston Nutcracker Market and have been wearing them on repeat since they literally go with everything! As always (or so my blog would tell) maroon and winter hats are a season favorite of mine that keep popping up in my attire. You know it’s bad when you have to tell yourself you aren’t allowed to wear hats with every single outfit. Oops! Every other one is totally acceptable though right? 😉
Happy Christmas week and enjoy your weekend!

Maybe I am biased because I am an Aggie or maybe it is my obsession with red wine, but maroon will forever be my favorite go-to color. I would say that is the case for the fall but that would be a lie since I wear it all year round! This outfit is perfect for the cool weather. Down here in Houston the weather hasn’t made it’s mind up about the impending winter weather so it makes for some tricky outfit choices. This sweater is a statement piece in itself so there is really no need to dress it up. All I had to do was stick some colored pumps and earrings on and let the sweater do the talking! The good thing about this sweater is that once it gets colder all you have to do is stick a sweater or long sleeve top under it.
I hope everyone is having a relaxing weekend! I will do a post soon with all of my black Friday finds and would love to hear from you about yours as well!

Since my first Thanksgiving look was more so on the comfortable side, I decided to share a dressier option for my second Thanksgiving Day outfit inspiration. The best part about this outfit is that 1) the leggings give me all the room in the world for those second (or third) helpings and 2) I picked up almost everything I am wearing from either Ross, Target, or TJ Maxx. That means this outfit is 2 things. Stylish and Cheap. My 2 favorite words to describe fashion. Don’t worry I have linked comparable, similar options that won’t break the bank.
This look might just be my favorite combo yet. If I had to pick one outfit that had almost all of my favorite fashion staples this would be it: leather leggings, plaid blanket scarf, leopard heels, and a fall hat. You will most likely find me in either leggings or jeans on Turkey day as I am sure a lot of you will be. These leather leggings are so versatile because they can be dressed up or dressed down. I chose to dress them up with my leopard heels and hat but they could be easily dressed down with riding boots or flats. You can look at my previous post, Black & White, for another take on these leather leggings.
Have a great Wednesday and Thanksgiving week friends!
