Holiday Sparkle

Jacket: Say What? via Macy’s / Top: H&M / Pants: H&M / Bag: Furla / Sunglasses: 99 Cents Only Store

Around the holidays I want nothing more than to wear glittery, glamourous clothes, but as a nanny sometimes that doesn’t make too much sense. These pants however are the perfect piece to turn into some daytime appropriate holiday gear, and did I mention they’re just as comfortable as pajamas? I wore almost the exact same outfit in this post, but made it feel current by swapping the graphic short for a plain black one tied up for a bit of skin to balance out the loser pieces, and a dark red bag and gold jewelry to keep it fresh. This is definitely an outfit remix I can say I’m proud of.

KaPow 💥

Sweater: Urban Outfitters / Pants: Cynthia Rowley / Boots: Sam Edelman / Bag: Furla / Earrings: Amazon

My sweater collection ranges from very simple to crazy patterned knit goodness (and of course a few ugly holiday ones thrown in for good measure), but this is one of my all time favorites. It’s oldy, but a goody, whose fun pop art print and bright colors never fail to put a smile on my face. To make the bright colors pop even more I chose a pair of bright yellow fringe earrings, that I’ve been struggling with (they just never felt quite right when any outfit I tried pairing them with), but when I put them on with this sweater the whole thing just felt right.

The Great Debate

Sweater: Caslon / Leggings: Nordstrom Rack / Boots: Frye / Bag: Bally

For me personally, I don’t mind leggings as pants, especially around the holidays when my pants are a tad bit tighter from overindulging. I can see the argument from both sides–“why not just wear sweatpants?” for example. To me though, all that really is needed to execute the look while looking pulled together is an oversized sweater, some over the knee boots and a pair of well made (that is truly the key) leggings. It’s a simple, casual look that feels infinitely chicer than just my everyday sweats.

Leather Love ✔️

Sweater: C&C California / Pants: Nha Khan / Boots: Sam Edelman

As far as pants go I have a pretty typical style. I either stick with jeans in a variety of colors and styles, or loose trouser in a silky material (the more they feel like pajamas the better). When I spotted these Nha Khan pants however, I knew I had to give them a try. They were the perfect amount of oversized and made me feel so cool and chic. I have definitely converted and can’t wait to try some similar styles! 

Rad in Plaid

Coat: ASTR/ Top: H&M (similar here)/ Pants: Nha Khanh (similar here) / Shoes: Sam Edelman / Bag: Bally

A good coat can take any outfit to the next level, but I have always had a soft spot for plaid. This ASTR coat is everything that I love all rolled into one. From the slightly oversize menswear cut to the subtle rust woven throughout the black and white, to the thick, luxe material it’s everything I look for in a coat. It offset the funkiness of the leather trousers and helped downplay the romance of the lace top even better than I’d imagined!

Baby, It’s (finally) Cold Outside

Sweater: H&M (similar here) / Dress: Scotch & Soda / Boots: Simply Vera by Vera Wang (similar here) / Purse: Julie K (similar here)/ Sunglasses: 99 Cent Store (I’m a sucker for cheap sunglasses)

Now that the temperature is finally dropping in LA I’ve begun pulling out more and more of my winter wardrobe. Unfortunately, you never know when it will decide to jump up to 75+ again, so to combat that I’ve been playing around with layers. This burgundy turtleneck sweater paired perfectly with this Scotch & Soda dress I featured last week. It managed to turn it into a completely different look which I love! I’ll definitely be playing around more with oversized sweaters over dresses in the future!
