I was getting dressed for a date the other night when it was pretty chilly outside and thought….oh gosh, what a GREAT blog post idea! And it just so happens that on my most recent date, I actually wore this exact outfit (Look One Below which is the same as this instagram and also grammed this outfit from another recent date!). Anyway, I thought it would be fun to do a post featuring my GO-TO sassy staple: my faux leather leggings!
Getting dressed for a date is a challenge in and of itself, and then trying to look chic but not look like you’re trying too hard all while its’ freezing outside can be a bit of a debacle (especially if you’re in a huge hurry like I usually am!) Well I’m here to solve those problems and tell you just to go ahead and get yourself a pair of these faux leather leggings (only $28!)…you can thank me later!
They’re great for a night out with girlfriends (or of course date night), but they can also easily be dressed down for day time and running errands as well! I’ve even worn mine with my NIKE’s and it’s actually super cute!
I’ve put together two simple looks that will hopefully help you out the next time you’re getting dressed for a date (or night out) and can’t figure out what to wear! Let me know what you think!
At some point or another, I think it’s safe to say that we’ll all be invited to a company/office christmas party. And whether it be for your own company or that of your significant other, chances are you’ll be faced with the decision of what to wear to this type of event.
Every company is different and I’m sure there are exceptions to the rule, but for the most part (and in my experience), holiday office parties tend to be on the swankier side and definitely a little fancier than your average conference room lunch. For this post, I’m assuming a cocktail attire dress code and hope to shed some light on how to strike the perfect balance between festive and appropriate with your outfit.
You could always go with a basic black dress and take the safe road, but who wants to do that anyway? (#boring) You’ve got to be a little more festive than that, okay?! But you don’t want to be too festive or wear anything super ‘loud’ either. So like I said, it’s all about striking the perfect balance between holiday cheer (#festive) while still looking professional and appropriate.
After considering the different types of outfits I’d wear to this type of event, I decided that a subtly festive (like….festive but not too festive…make sense?) midi skirt is the perfect ensemble. It’s conservative and classy, yet can be festive and fun as well. All in all, a midi skirt is the perfect solution to your what-to-wear-to-an-office-party woes :)
As such, I’ve put together 2 different (but similar) looks with midi skirts that would both be appropriate (in my opinion) to wear to your (or your boyfriend/husband’s) holiday christmas party! Please let me know if you have any questions or any holiday parties where you need some help getting dressed!
I’ve been on the lookout for a cozy vest option that will be warmer than my puffer vest yet not as thick as my faux fur vest (currently loving/wearing this one). Needless to say, I knew this faux shearling vest was the answer the second I saw it. Unlike most of the shearling vests on the market right now, this one is not super thick, which allows for additional layering (either on top or underneath). Additionally, since it isn’t super bulky, it doesn’t steal all the attention of an outfit and (like I said) allows for layering and flexibility when putting together outfits (hopefully that makes sense?).
I paired it with a simple black turtleneck because I loved the contrast – but I’m also just super partial to black and brown and cream together (probably one of my favorite combos…ever).
