An obvious way to stand out this NYE is to wear a bright fun color! Gem tones like purple and turquoise are always a hit! And bright metallics are a welcomed addition to any celebration. My absolute favorite color to wear is red, so I decided to go with this Simply Be LRD, or Little Red Dress! There’s a shade of red out there for everyone. And not only does it make you feel sexy, it comes in handy on so many occasions! I love the crossover halter neckline and the fit of the body. This is the kind of dress that’s totally worth wearing a strapless bra for!

Where to wear it next: Date Night, Girl’s Night Out

Nothing screams “Too glam to give a damn” like a floor length sequin, tiered tassel dress! I’m not exaggerating at all when I say that I felt like royalty the whole time I was wearing this! The detailed beading, sequins, and layering make this dress so much fun to wear! Pair this dress with some sky high heels and you’ll be ready to twirl and strut your stuff around the whole night!

Where to wear it next: Broadway Show, Gala Event

Make a statement with fur!

Bring on the fur! I personally think every girl deserves a (faux) fur coat in her closet. It is a tried and true way to bring instant glam to even your most simple jeans and lace cami top! I’m a big fan of this Simply Be blush pink coat because it’s neutral enough to style several ways, but it’s still a big statement! This coat will definitely keep you warm whether you’re walking to your next NYE party location or just to and from your car any time in the next month. Seriously, stay warm out there! Brrr!

Where to wear it next: All day, everyday this winter!

Holiday Fashion | Sponsored by Macy’s!

The holidays are here and I am finally feeling it this year! With moving across the country and apartment searching, I haven’t been prioritizing my usual holiday activities, like watching Elf on repeat for 25 days straight or dressing up my dog in festive outfits or drinking several almond milk peppermint lattes a day. But I’m making up for lost time and my friends at Macy’s are helping me do it! I’ve partnered with Macy’s to show you how I get my wardrobe holiday ready with embellished classic pieces that will elevate your tried and true outfits!

When I think of a classic wardrobe staple that we can elevate for the holidays, the first thing I think of is the LBD – Little Black Dress! This City Chic dress is the perfect LBD that has all the charm necessary for your next holiday party! Can you really go wrong with lace? I don’t think so! The lace overlay gives a subtle sexiness that is perfect for a night out but also cut long enough to be family friendly. One thing that made me instantly love this dress was the burgundy embroidered detailing – a trend that carried over from summer. I added this matching burgundy Kate Spade clutch to give the outfit an extra pop of color!

I don’t know about you, but I am a jeans and cute top girl just as much as I am a LBD girl! Sometimes the idea of putting on a dress, shaving my legs, and subjecting myself to those disrespectfully cold breezes that always make it up my skirt is just too much for me! I’ll opt for that jeans and a tee vibe any day! These Celebrity Pink faux-leather skinny jeans and City Chic bell sleeved top are the perfect pair for a holiday outfit that looks chic and polished, but feels more casual and comfy! (Quick tip: Add a leather detail to any outfit to instantly elevate the look) I think that if you’re gonna rock the jeans and top look to your next holiday party, the best way to ensure you’re dressed to impress is to give special attention to your accessories! I decided to wear these sexy Nine West pumps and a crystal choker to give my outfit that added touch of glamour.

I absolutely love these two embellished holiday looks! I hope you do too! All of the items in this post are available at Macy’s! Happy holidays! And, as always, thank you for reading!

XoXo

Fall Magic with Full Beauty

img_9668
I don’t know if it’s the chill in the air, the changing leaves, or the ample amounts of deliciously spiced treats, but there’s something magical about fall. Would you believe that this is only my second fall ever?! I grew up in sunny Los Angeles where fall was a color scheme but definitely not a real season. So when Full Beauty asked me to join them and some of our favorite bloggers on an epic fall photoshoot upstate, I packed my bags!


Once we arrived to our beautiful location, we quickly changed into our first looks and were off to play with the horses. This skirt was definitely a winner! It’s the kind of piece that can be styled up with an off the shoulder top and heels or styled down for a more casual vibe. We opted for the more casual look and thank goodness because leading a horse is hard enough without the heels! Random fun fact: Horses roll on their backs like dogs and it’s mad funny!


Next up was bike riding, apple picking, and well… apple eating. We changed into our second looks to explore the apple farm and do some serious quality control. I never imagined I’d ride a two person bike and I never thought I’d eat an apple straight off the tree, but look at me out here living my best life!

We changed into our last look for an adorable sunset picnic by the lake! Look at that view! Can we all take a minute to appreciate this perfect fall magic moment?! **happy sigh** This outfit was much more comfy than you’d expect and I really love the color of this peacoat. I am actively looking for a lipstick that matches, so drop your favs in the comments below!
What a beautiful day! Thank you Full Beauty for bringing me along on this epic day trip! And thank you to the ladies who made it extra special!
