Few OOTD's for December

Emphasis on the word "few"
I'm one of those people who seems to have alot of clothes but wear the same things all the time. In fact most of the clothes I wear everyday were already shown in my November OOTD's so here are a few new ish bits.


The Company Holiday Party

I realized I wore this skirt last year to the company party! what can I say, it's my go to!

You want to try to look festive, and make an effort, but not too crazy as you do have to work in the office before you PAR-TAY!

Necklace: UO, Top: Monki, Skirt: Korea, Tights: DKNY, Shoes: BCBG, JCrew Belt to create a "poof" effect, Watch: MK

Working the next day, you need to not look hung over - which I definitly was not, professional, but comfortable because you are probably tired, and ate alot of party food

Polka dots are a great way to make a black and white suit less boring

Blazer: UO, Polka Dot blouse: Korea, Pants, Express, Watch MK

Prints and Accessories

Dont be afraid to add subtle prints and accessories to bring your work attire to a new level
Pick items that can be inter changable from the office to your personal life
Pick neutral colors for the easiest way to make the transition

Stars and Stripes theme

Starry Blouse: Zara, Necklace: H&M, Watch MK --> All three items are currently available online or in store


Home for the holidays
In the winter warm fabrics, and spring colors can make you feel brighter even when the weather outside is showing the opposite

Thinner materials layered together can be both warm and fashionable with the different textures and colors

I finally got a full length mirror, please ignore the background!

Outfit 1: Jcrew Sweater, BDG T Shirt and Jeans, Uggs (ugly but warm!), MK Watch
Outfit 2: Zara buttondown, HM sweater, BDG jeans, Doc Martens, MK Watch, Stripy socks!
Outfit 3: H&M T from the Boys Section, BDG jeans, Frye Boots, MK Watch, Leather Jacket (not pictured) - sometimes you just got to wear black

Example of how to wear items in different outfits

Same Zara blouse but layered over a black tank. You can see the subtle star pattern and the re use of the necklace which I have been wearing daily!! Need to find the silver version!

You don't need a big wardrobe to dress nicely daily, buy good basics, that can be mixed and matched with ease, and you wont need a closet full of junk

(Which reminds me I need to donate some clothes soon !) -- it's good for you and others!

Hope some of these tips helped for cold weather dressing!

The Holiday Spirit

Merry Christmas everyone!!! ( For those who celebrate! )

Just wanted to share a few photos that I think show the holiday spirit. No matter which holidays you celebrate, no matter what foods you eat, or what movies you watch. This time of year is not just about Rudolph and presents, but the holiday spirit which makes this time of a year, the time to reflect on happiness and giving.

Hope everyone has a very happy holiday season surrounded by your friends and family!!

Best wishes to everyone!!!!!!!
