HOLIDAY OUTFIT INSPO

Hi friends! I hope everyone had a fantastic Thanksgiving! So, recently, I’ve been gravitating towards a certain aesthetic when planning several outfits for Christmas/holiday get-togethers this month. I’ve featured this plaid midi skirt from Kate Spade before, and I just can’t get enough. I also love it in cream, as seen on that precious little secretary-style shift dress. One of these pieces just has to make in into my holiday wardrobe, and the odds are certainly in my favor as they’re both currently on sale! Using the inspiration from these pieces, I put together a little image map of items that fit the look. If you live closer to the North Pole, like me, you’ll also need a great pair of tights, so go for the mat opaque 80 from Wolford. They are the Cadillac of tights and you have to just bite the bullet and invest. I like the idea of having a few key pieces and then mixing and matching with classic black basics and gold jewelry. That’s my holiday outfit approach. I know, what a concept, groundbreaking. Anyway, I hope you can draw some inspo for your holiday looks too! Tomorrow I’ll be back with another gift guide, have a great Thursday y’all!

Summer Wedding Wear

Click to Shop!

It’s that time of year again: wedding season. I’ve rounded up my favorite occasion dresses from Shopbop! Maybe it’s the hometown hero in me, but I love Shopbop. They have the greatest selection and for my fellow Madisonians, the free three day shipping basically means free overnight shipping (seriously, so fast). Since the company is owned by Amazon, it’s also available for Prime! I picked a dress for everything from the casual outdoor nuptials, to the swanky black tie soiree! I also tried to select from a wide price range. Are you a Southern Belle with a wedding every weekend this summer? Don’t buy a dress for each (unless you have the ample means, which in that case, take me shopping too!). Many of these dresses can be styled differently, so throw on a different shoe, add a statement necklace, or even just change your hair. Chances are there will be different crowds at each event, so don’t sweat being an outfit repeater. Great dresses like these deserve to be worn, so don’t be afraid to invest in one and keep re-styling it all summer!
