Bells and Lace

One of my biggest wardrobe flaws is this: I never ever get anything hemmed. I’ve only ever gotten 3 things hemmed as an adult: two pairs of jeans and one gown I wore to a wedding last year. Honestly, I regret hemming the jeans, it changes the whole shape and look, so I’m really hesitant to ever hem anything. However… these velvet bells… they could stand to see a least a centimeter go I think.

These velvet bells were part of my holiday wardrobe last year, AND this year. I love that they’re still in style. Truth be told, they’re so comfortable and flattering I’d wear them even if they weren’t. Follow your own trends, I say! I wore this exact look to my boyfriend’s company’s holiday party this year. He works at a gym so I was like what’s the dress code? He gave the usual guy answer, “just wear whatever you want.” As I expected, some people were dressed up and others literally came right from the gym, so I thought this was a good middle ground look. Not TOO fancy, but festive none the less.

See what I’m saying about these pants being a hair too long? I feel like clothing companies do not make clothes for the average sized human being. Like yeah I get it.. some girls are 5’9 and 110 pounds… but hi, not me. It’d be nice if everyone made clothes for petite lil ladies like myself, and KUDOS to brands that do!

Sorry for the lack of posts lately. It’s so hard to get motivated to go out and shoot when it’s legit freezing outside. ;]

She Wore Cherry Red Flares

I am so excited to bring you guys a full week, yes, FULL WEEK(!!!) of holiday ready outfits! There are so many different places to travel and celebrate the festivities this time of year, and so many different ways to dress the part. The first four outfits you’re going to see this week come straight from my favorite store, South Moon Under. I first saw these burgundy velvet flares a few weeks ago when I took a friend of mine who was visiting from out of town shopping. Two things happened when I saw them; one, I fell in love, and two, I felt like Prince would wear them and I love Prince so obvi I needed them.

Aren’t these flares to diiiieeeee for? I am obsessed! I love the color and the fit. I never in a million years thought I’d find myself in a pair, especially velvet, but I dig it. That is why my mottos is to always try stuff on; you never know what you may end up liking. Velvet is such a key fabric this time of year. The deep berry hue and bright shine make it a perfect look for Christmas.  I also love this feathery and sparkly top. I always find myself wanting to wear skirts embellished with feathers but I love the way they dress up this tank. You’ll see from the rest of the week’s post that I am loving a very certain color palate this time of year that is not my usual go-to but apparently something I’m very drawn to now. Let me know your thoughts and happy (early) holidays!
