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.

Work:

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!

    ReplyDelete
  23. thanks!!!! my cardigan is actually more like light peach? I REALLY need to work on the lighting...
    The Frye Boots are OK, i have owned 3 pairs. One was half a size too small and OMG dont EVER do that bc they kept making my feet in constant pain! during the breaking in period and i just ended up donating them! The items that were my actual size took a very very long time to break in, the black ones ive had for about 3 years and theyre still a little tough, one pair i have had for about 5 years are very comfortable! It also dep on how often you wear them, but initally it really really hurts, and you need to invest some time to really break them in, but i would continue to buy them, bc i know they are of quality but they are also quite heavy in my mother's opinion ;P
