Casual holiday party outfit and vintage vibes

It is holiday party season! This year, my friends and family members are hosting casual holiday parties. I love casual events because it means my holiday party outfits can be comfortable! This green sequin top, and these boot-cut jeans, are part of my holiday capsule wardrobe. This top is so much fun, and it can be dressed up, or down, according to the occasion. It’s perfect for dressing up a pair of comfy jeans; and the green sequins is holiday ready! Love that!

My black and gold booties are comfortable for standing and walking, plus the gold gives them a holiday touch. I love the festive look! The key to a good capsule wardrobe is to have one, inexpensive piece which is seasonal, and combine it with pieces in your closet that are seasonless. This sequin top, which is priced under $50, pairs well with basic bottoms and classic accessories in order to create a holiday-ready look. I love saving money!

If you are looking for an affordable way to update your wardrobe for the holiday party season, I highly recommend this green sequin top! You can find it online here.

I hope you are having a fabulous holiday season! For more holiday outfit inspiration, be sure to check out my capsule wardrobe for more holiday party outfit ideas!

Holiday gifts for you and me

Holiday party outfit c/o Chico’s: red dangle earrings / black turtleneck / gold and black velvet ruana / gold and red statement necklace / velvet pants /

The holiday season is in full swing, and I know what I want from Santa! I also happen to know what my friends will want from him too 😉 Shopping for my friends is always fun. They are bold, athletic yet chic, adventurous, kind, and downright fabulous! I know I can find the perfect gifts for them at Chico’s!

Let’s face it, holiday shopping includes a ton of shopping for both ourselves and others. It’s hard to resist snapping up beautiful items we may need when we see them alongside something we know a friend or family member would love to receive. So, this holiday season, and every holiday season, I will shop for myself while I shop for gifts!

gifts ideas for her holiday gifts for myself

Holiday gifts for her from left: gold and black scarf (under $50!) / golden travel case (under $50!) / snowflake brooch (under $50!) / red reversible ruana (under $100!) /

I’m loving these travel cases for the holiday 2019 season. I have a few trips planned next year, and these cases would be ideal for keeping my suitcase organized. My friends love to travel too which means this travel case would be perfect for them; hopefully my BFF’s aren’t reading this-or they will guess what I am placing under the tree for them!

Jewelry is always a fabulous stand-by when it comes to gift-giving, and Chico’s has some amazing pieces to give this season. I am swooning over this snowflake brooch. It adds sparkle during the dreary winter season, and it’s also an easy way to spice up a coat or jacket. Love it!

One of my favorite items to give is a sweater. This ruana is really fun for the holiday season since it seems like a sweater, yet offers a sophisticated silhouette which can be dressed up or down. It also comes in a ton of colors; and it’s reversible! It will be the perfect gift.

Scarves are another stand-by gift. Everyone loves to receive a scarf! Many of us love to give ourselves scarves too! Haha one for me, one for you! I am obsessed with this sparkling and chic scarf from Chico’s. It will be under the tree for someone in family. Shhhh!! Don’t tell her! 😉

In addition to gifts, ‘tis the season for parties! This season I am attending events held inside homes. I love these velvet pants, and this chic velvet ruana for holiday house parties. They are really comfortable, yet chic and festive. Love that! The entire look is Chico’s, but I’m sure you guessed that already 😉

What gifts do you plan to give this holiday season? What are you hoping to find underneath the tree for yourself?

Have a fabulous holiday season!

XOXO

Classic twin set for casual days

How could I resist this path, filled with beautiful fall leaves, in the parking lot at Stanford Shopping Center? I couldn’t! My original plan was to find some pretty holiday decor, and snap some photos in front of it, but then, I saw this path and had to change my plans immediately! Can you blame me? These fall colors are soooooo pretty!!

While it is still technically fall outside, I am in full-on holiday mode. This fall season has been so busy with my kids schedules, that I haven’t really had time to relax, or think! I am craving the holiday season because it means peaceful time with my family, moments to share with my friends, and more time to chat about fashion, style, and beauty with you! Love that!

When Chico’s sent me this black twin set as a holiday gift last week, I was thrilled! I love a good classic twin set; especially in black! This is a great twin set to reach for on casual days since it is over-sized. I gave it a little holiday flair with my green scarf from my holiday capsule wardrobe. I can definitely give it more sparkle after Thanksgiving 🙂 If you don’t own a classic twin set, you need one! Definitely check this one out, it comes in a ton of colors! Love!

Are you excited for the holiday season too? Despite it being busy, do you find it peaceful and relaxing too?

Thanks for stopping by!
