Fashion Friday: Holiday Event Dressing

There are SO many types of holiday events in the coming weeks and so I wanted to throw together some outfit options for different kinds of parties you might be attending!  From an urban dressy-casual look (my personal favorite- that blazer!) to more formal parties and everything in between!

Fashion Friday: The Sweater I Won’t Take Off

Last weekend I was at Anthropologie with my sister-in-law and picked up this patterned sweater “coat”.  As I do often when in Anthro, I asked her if it was totally awesome or some kind of weird daytime bathrobe.  After trying it on I decided it was the former.  And since then I’ve worn it three times (yes, in one week- gross).  It’s just SO warm, so comfy and totally stylish.  Not to mention EASY. Add skinny jeans or leggings, boots (or heeled booties like these for a little dressier effect) and a tank underneath and you are ready to head out the door feeling so comfortable but looking together!  I adore pieces like this!

Fashion Friday: Looking Good After A Long Week

Dude.

It’s been a busy week.  Scratch that, a busy MONTH.  And I know many of you also have had busy weeks/ months/ years too.  And it’s hard to want to get dressed when you’re beat, which is why I’ve been all about uniforms lately (as you may have noticed).  Even when I feel crappy, I make a point to put in a little effort to get dressed as it makes me feel just a bit better and more energized (although right now I want to just put my face down on this keyboard and go to sleep). You won’t find me teetering around in my rockstuds and a neoprene party skirt, but I at least can pop on a fierce blazer, jeans and super snazzy flats (and my glasses to hide the bags) and go about my day feeling comfortable and somewhat put together.  Life is hard, but dressing well doesn’t have to be.
