NEW YEAR, NEW FAVORITE COLOR

Details: Stripe Asymmetrical Hem skirt c/o Banana Republic, here |

Word on the street is that Pantone’s color of the year for 2018 is ‘Ultra Violet.’ Most people know that I’m not crazy about colors, but the vibrancy and sheen of this asymmetrical hem skirt make it hard not to love. It’s high-waisted and fitted with a flare at the bottom, making it both sleek and girly. With such a vibrant color, it was hard for to determine what the best top would be. Typically, I would go for something neutral like ivory or taupe, but I decided to go a bit bolder to compete with such a strong color and paired it with a deep navy turtleneck. I always knew navy and violet were a good duo, but I never knew they looked THIS good together. I seriously love everything about this combo and I may just ditch my go-to black dress for Christmas dinner, and don this outfit instead. I’ll admit, it was difficult for me to figure out the perfect shoes. I still don’t LOVE the ones I styled this with, but they were good enough. I did try a black bootie, which seemed to be such a stark contrast with my fair skin, however, someone who is taller than me might be able to pull over an ankle bootie with this skirt. I’m also debating on wearing this skirt for a New Year’s Day party because it only seems appropriate to kick off the new year with THE color of the year. I mean, duh!

So, if you’re willing to swap out your dresses this holiday season for a skirt, I highly suggest you give this beauty a try. If you should be so bold, please share with me how you would style it; I’d love to see your looks!!

Happy holiday styling!

DARKER DAYS & LIGHTER SHADES

I don’t think a week has gone by where I haven’t worn a turtleneck. I’m not sure what my obsession is lately; it probably has something to do with the fact that they’re unbelievably comfortable and make me feel as though I’m cuddled underneath my favorite blanket. Recently, I made my way to the Banana Republic Factory store and let’s just say my wallet hates me. In addition to this mixed-stitch chunky turtleneck, I got several sweaters, a couple dresses and some much needed winter accessories—I couldn’t help myself! And in an effort to mix up my standard denim duds I’ve been giving a new neutral the spotlight. {Enter} powder grey high rise skinny jeans; one of my favorite purchases this season. They go with everything and add a much needed pep in my fall wardrobe. Seriously, give some lighter shades a try this winter, you’d be surprised at how much they can revamp your style.
