December is finally here and that means spending time with friends and family during the holiday season. This is definitely my favorite time of year and I’ve already started getting in the holiday spirit by picking out decorations to hang inside my apartment. If you follow me on twitter than you know I’ve already attended my first of several holiday parties this season. With all the holiday parties coming up, I’ve already started mentally planning outfits ( look out for a few look books on the blog soon). Aside from wearing traditional colors such as red and green, I also love dressing for the season wearing white, cream,and metallics. Recently I got in the holiday spirit wearing my new favorite cream colored sweater and leather leggings.

Comment below and let me know what are your holiday season wardrobe stables? What do you wear to show your holiday spirit?

How I Style Tights in the Winter


Dressing for winter is like a double edge sword, twice as useful but also twice as many chances for mistakes. On the one hand you have soo many more cute cold weather accessories you can mix and play with, but on the other hand it can be a challenge trying to figure out how to layer, add, and subtract pieces all the while remaining stylish. This tricky equation gets all the more complicated if you’re not actually prepared for winter and have none of the a fore mentioned cute winter accessories. I admittedly was so NOT prepared for this winter. Being a southern girl true and true, this is my first real winter I’ve ever experienced in my 20 something years (apparently we’re still in “Fall weather” and haven’t even hit Winter in NYC yet). Despite it being officially ridiculously cold outside I’ve been in denial, hoping that maybe if I pretend it’s not cold, I won’t actually be cold). Needless to say, after basically freezing my butt off for the past few weeks I’ve been forced to admit defeat.

Luckily, I was recently given the opportunity to try out the No nonsense brand of tights and leggings. I received a pair of denim leggings and a pair of patterned black tights. For the first outfit I wore, I layered a basic long sleeve shirt under a bright chiffon button down shirt. I added a blazer for extra warmth and paired it with the denim leggings and knee-high boots. I loved the fact that everyone thought they were actual jeans, but I had the comfort of wearing leggings! In the second outfit I choose to amp up the warmth factor of a sweater dress by pairing it with patterned tights and another bright blazer.

Wardrobe Inspiration + WIWW: Leather Pleated Skirt Edition

As you know from the post I did yesterday (and if you follow me on Snapette and see the ridiculous amount of leather goodies I’ve snapped pictures of) I’m beyond in love with the leather trend that’s happening this season. So naturally I’ve been scooping up affordable vegan leather pieces ( I even scored a vintage leather skirt and backpack when I went thrifting a few weeks ago). One of my first purchases was a black pleated vegan leather skirt from H&M.

What to Wear to Graduation

This past weekend I officially graduated from college! The past four years have been the best of times and sometimes the worst of times, to say the least. I will miss my friends and peers but I’m excited to start the next chapter of my life. Thank you again for everyone who submitted their opinions on what dress to wear under my cap and gown. I ended up purchasing a white lace peplum dress from H&M (unfortunately I couldn’t find a picture of it online but below are two similar dresses).

 I was super excited to wear my dress but then
the night before I decided that I wanted to wear a dress with pockets! Since it was such a last minute decision, I didn’t have time to go out and purchase a new dress. I ended up wearing a dress that I purchased last season. (pictured below).
Although I didn’t end up wearing  the white dress, my floral print dress was a big hit. I’m sure the white peplum dress will come in handy this upcoming summer! :)
