Holiday Outfit Inspo

Whether you’re celebrating Hanukkah, Christmas, Kwanzaa or something else, the holidays are upon us! Because different families and types of celebrations call for different styles of clothing, I’m sharing some of my favorite looks for this holiday season from tacky to snazzy and everything in between.

Snazzy: Lavender Bedazzled Sweater, Spanx Leggings, Black Manolos Classic: Bow Blouse, Black Sweater, Plaid Pants, Black Manolos Casual: Grey and Blue Sweater, Skinny Jeans, Tan Boots Festive: Tacky Christmas Sweater, Red and White Striped PJ Pants, Silver Sneakers

For this snazzy holiday look, I went a little bit out of my comfort zone. Of course if you’ve been following me for a bit, you will have seen this sweater a few times, but I think it is ideal for the holidays. I also live in my black Manolo Blahniks–they are an investment, but some of the best money you can spend. I bought this pair six years ago and wear they all the time. Outside of these staples for me, these Spanx leggings y’all… definitely not something I would normally ever buy or wear, but I kept seeing them everywhere so I had to give them a shot. While they are a bit loud for me…literally and metaphorically, they are incredibly flattering and SO comfortable to wear! If you’re feeling like looking a little bold at your holiday celebration, I would definitely recommend these.

Now this look is a little bit more my speed and one of my favorite holiday looks I’ve ever put together! I wore this a few years ago for Christmas in New Orleans with my husband’s family. I wore this to our Christmas Eve luncheon at Arnaud’s and it was the perfect combo for such a traditional setting. Luckily, the pants, shoes and sweater I wore are still in stock, but the Theory Bow Blouse is sadly out of stock. I found a replacement and I think it would still make the look incredible.

Festive: Tacky Christmas Sweater, Red and White Striped PJ Pants, Silver Sneakers

And now for the fun stuff!! I live for tacky Christmas parties and I’m so thankful we are having a family tacky Christmas sweater party this year for Christmas Eve. Inspired by a tacky candy cane, I put this look together last year and could not have been happier with it! For the tacky Christmas party I attended last year, I wore this amazing Christmas tree looking sweater and Rachel Parcell pajama pants. They are no longer available, but I found a similar pair at Target that are so cute! Pair this with a sparkly pair of sneakers and you will be ready for a good time!

How are you celebrating the holidays this year? Leave me a comment and let me know!

Save v. Splurge: Fall Coats

Save v. Splurge: Fall Coats

Fall weather has officially arrived here in Austin and I am breaking out my coats! I’ve rounded up four of my favorite coat styles at save and splurge prices to keep you warm and fashionable all season.

I absolutely love this green Barbour Jacket from Nordstrom and it is currently on sale!! I recommend this jacket for everyday wear, running errands or when you’re doing something outdoors. If you’re looking for an even better deal, check out this green jacket from Amazon. It is a cult favorite and looks good on any body shape or size.

Last year I bought my first Rachel Parcell Coat from Nordstrom and I can not say enough good things about it! First of all, the price is amazing…I think I got mine for around $250, but it truly looks like a Max Mara or Sentaler Coat for a fraction of the cost. I wore this coat to formal events and to work last year and I’m really looking forward to wearing it again this year. I haven’t been able to find the Rachel Parcell coats at Nordstrom this year, but I’m hoping they are up soon!

Tan wrap coats and teddy coats are also essentials for the fall and I have never seen a wrap coat for under $60!! Hurry up and grab one before they sell out! This style from H&M comes in a beige, tan and black.
