SLEEVELESS SHEATHS

I know that it’s completely acceptable to wear sleeveless dresses to work during the winter months, but my pale skin doesn’t agree. I don’t like being reminded that I resemble Casper’s sister. And since I have a ton of sleeveless sheath dresses I decided to get creative and layer this one over a long sleeve lace bodysuit. Initially, I was planning on layering it over a turtleneck, but this is a relatively sexy dress and sometimes a girl doesn’t like feeling so buttoned up. The black lace adds an element of feminity and sex appeal making it an outfit that transitions seamlessly from work to play. And considering it is the season for tights, I finally had to invest in a reliable pair. I don’t know what it is with me and tights; we just don’t mesh (no pun intended). I always end up getting a snag, run and/or pull and it results in so much frustration that I just decide to pack up my dresses and wait for the spring. However, after receiving a pair L’eggs black sheer energy tights, I can finally say I no longer harbor those frustrations. As a young girl, I’d always purchase solid white or pink tights for my ballet and jazz classes and they carried me through some of the most memorable recitals. Unfortunately, over the years, I forgot about L’eggs. I guess the flashy designer names caught hold of my wallet, but now, I can honestly say I will never go back. Every dress I’ve worn this season I’ve paired my sheer energy L’eggs tights with them and I have yet to have a run, snag OR pull! I’m not kidding. If you’re like me, and the idea of putting on tights deters you from donning your favorite winter dresses just invest in ONE pair of L’eggs tights and you’ll be all set. I’m serious. Let the dress wearing begin ladies!

MY CHRISTMAS GIFT OUTFIT

DSC_0753 copyDSC_0770 copyDSC_0738 copyDSC_0805DSC_0782 copyDSC_0810Details: Express pleated cuffed shorts, here | Banana Republic metallic peplum top, similar here | H&M white blouse, similar here | Anne Klein polka dot sheer tights, similar here |

Shorts with tights is my new favorite combo lately. It’s so difficult to get creative with my wardrobe during the winter months because I get discouraged by the frigid temps. This outfit includes two Christmas gifts and you can be certain that clothing gifts are my absolute favorite. It’s clear that these gift-givers knew my style so I decided to create a look with both. The metallic Banana Republic peplum top is a new staple for me considering it can be worn casually with denim or dressed up with a skirt and/or trouser shorts. I decided to layer it over a white button-down, although if the weather permits it’s perfectly acceptable to wear it solo. And instead of my typical sheer black tights, I incorporated my other Christmas gift, these Anne Klein polka dot tights. I’ve been searching for tights like these since last New Year’s so you can imagine how excited I was to get these in my stocking this year. To top this look off, I slipped on my ONE and ONLY Black Friday purchase, these black laced booties. I can’t explain how comfortable they are and not to mention the added edge they give any outfit is undeniable.
