CROPPED FLEECE: THE PERFECT BALANCE

Details: Funnel Vision Nude Cropped Sweatshirt c/o Tobi, here|   UNIQLO drape pants, similar here | Jessica Simpson two-tone pumps, similar here |

Feeling comfortable during the holidays is key. I mean, you’re overeating, there’s a lot of sitting, talking and traveling. Staying cozy and comfortable is almost necessary. While I love unearthing my “sexy” side, I feel more myself in cozy blanket-like knits and my favorite UNIQLO jogger pants. Now, to balance cute and comfortable, I found this perfect fleece cropped sweater and it even has bell sleeves. I’m super short and sometimes my chunky sweaters look a bit too long and chunky and a lot less cute. Not to mention, this nude mauve color is soft enough for my fair winter complexion (bonus points for not looking like a zombie!). The fleece material makes it ultra cozy, making it an absolute must-have for family gatherings filled with food. If it were up to me completely, I would wear my backless loafers (which is absolutely acceptable), but to add some sass, I went with a neutral pump. It definitely brings the outfit to the next level, but I’m still packing my flats in my purse.

While I’m in search of a balance between comfort and cute, I know I’ll hit some pitfalls but I will try my hardest stay balanced and stylish this season. What are your favorite holiday looks that you just can’t wait to wear?!

P.S. It’s on sale right now (50% OFF)

STAY SASSY

Changing things up this holiday season with a game-changing look. While it’s a bit out of character for me, I have to say I was pleasantly surprised at how comfortable a mesh bodysuit is. From dresses to jumpsuits, I’ve tried it all, but I’ve never been able to wrap my head around a mesh bodysuit. It’s like a shirt, but definitely not a shirt because it’s transparent.  Am I the only one?  Regardless! I always say I’ll try every clothing trend once, so I gave this polka dot mesh bodysuit a try. I especially love it because of its bell sleeves and mock neck. Who would’ve thought that a mesh bodysuit could have a mock neck and bell sleeves?! Crazier things have happened, I guess. While I’m much more myself in a jumpsuit, I think this look could be runnerup. I feel like a Lifetime movie vixen. You know who I’m talking about? The woman who wears the most revealing outfits and looks absolutely stunning, but her intentions are to steal the man that the wholesome, all-American girl is absolutely in love with. Yea, that’s what I feel like while wearing this ultra-sexy outfit. And I won’t lie, I LOVE it. When I first styled this outfit, I slipped on high-waisted jeans and booties, but to bring this look to the next level, I went with tapered dress pants and snake stamped mules. I feel much more comfortable in a looser fitted pant because I’m practically naked wearing a mesh bodysuit. Plus, I think it adds some necessary class and balances the stunning sexiness of the top.

While I’ll never really relate to the Lifetime movie vixen, I’m sure going to have fun looking the part. And now…I’m due for a girls night out. See ya!

TRADE IN THAT LBD FOR A RED ONE

dsc_0896editeddsc_0900editeddsc_0893editeddsc_0895editeddsc_0008editeddsc_0997editedDetails: Lace Insert Openwork Slimming Bodycon dress c/o Rosegal, here |

It really didn’t feel like Christmas this year, and leading up to the day I was super worried that I wouldn’t feel that Christmas spirit. But after seeing my little babes (nieces and nephews) so excited over Santa and all of the presents he brought them, it was hard not to. I’ll be honest, I don’t typically dress up on Christmas day. It’s mostly because I’d rather be comfortable than cute and I like to help in the kitchen or hold a drooling baby without worrying about getting a good outfit dirty. While I don’t typically dress up on Christmas day, that doesn’t mean I don’t love a good dress. I always gravitate to black, but when I saw this red lace bodycon dress, I couldn’t help but grab it. It’s comfortable and I love that it has long sleeves because I do not want my pasty white arms getting any attention. I also really love how vibrant the color red is. It just screams Christmas joy–right? Just because the holidays are coming to a close, doesn’t mean you don’t need a ton of new dresses for 2017 weekends ahead. Speaking of 2017, if you’re still on the hunt for a NYE dress, scoop this one up from Rosegal. Fun tip: it’s not normal bodycon tight, so you can drink as much champagne and chomp on endless apps without feeling like your food baby is showing.

Well, that’s all I got, but I hope everyone had a wonderful holiday filled with Christmas spirit!
