Autumn Greetings everyone!
I know its been a while since I posted last and I’m here to break the dry spell! After Thanksgiving It got very busy for me, but also trying to having much needed down time.
Anyhoo, I’ve come today to discuss one of my favorite topics: Fashion.
As the days and weeks chug along, we get closer and closer to the holiday season. And following our holidays, or just any night outs, comes the perplexing question: Do I dress formal? Am I supposed to dress casual?
My most favorite quote, spoken from the lips of anyone who’s ever gotten ready with their friends is: “Wait, were we supposed to dress up?”
I can tell you now my friends, I am here to calm your worries and hopefully cast a lifesaver into the ocean of ideas.
I firmly believe that people should dress for their comfort levels. If you feel most comfortable dressed up, or more so in casual attire than do so. These are merely my go-to outfits for nights out and special occasions. 🙂
#1: Casual Cozy Dress
For this look I have paired a casual dress with a thin long sleeve sweater. To top off this simple look I accessorized with a gold heart buckle belt, and my favorite snake skin heels. My favorite feature of this outfit (that I firmly believe carries the whole look) is the cute 50’s style neckline and pleats of the dress. The gorgeous aqua color of the dress also pairs well with the black accessories.
You can switch up any colors and patterns for this outfit. The base being: Long sleeves + Collar layered over top + cute shoes of your choice!
#2: Comfy Combo:
A lot of the time people associate dressing up with…well, dresses. But dresses can bring many woes and, how you say, ‘breezy situations”. So for a dressy yet sturdy look I paired black and aqua together once again (definitely not on purpose I swear). My bottoms are a lovely pair of canvas beach pants. Typically worn in summer I love these pants and cannot bare to bid farewell in the long winter months. My shirt is a simple black pleated shirt.
An easy combo made from: Flowing, eccentric pattern top + solid color slacks or dress pants + your fave pair of comfy heels or other shoe choice.
Last but not least:
#3: Sweater, Collar, Cool jeans love.
Okay, I may have ran out of cool names for this outfit, but It does not take away from how much I adore it! (And ignore the smudge on the picture…I need to clean my mirror apparently)
If it wasn’t already obvious I have a love for collar and sweater combos! this layer is sort of the opposite of the first outfit with the collar placed underneath. My jeans and boots add the pop of color this outfit needed. I often pair this with my riding boots as an alternative to the chunky heels if I’m bustling around town.
A match made in heaven made up of:
One part multi use long sleeve + a hint of a cute lacy collar shirt + Floral funky jeans + A dash of chunky heels or riding boots = Perfection!
Now, I refrained from naming brands since I wanted to focus mainly on the template of these looks, so anyone can put them together with their own wardrobe.
I hope you enjoyed this post! I certainly had fun putting it all together! And if you did have any curiosity of the brands just leave me a comment and I’d be happy to share! Let me know if you’d like to see more like this.
Do you guys have any favorite outfits for the holidays? Let me know! 🙂
