Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas

It’s the Monday after Thanksgiving and you know what that means… Christmas is in full swing! All those people that wait until Thanksgiving are finally on board and it’s full steam ahead.

I wanted to share three holiday looks you can recreate for holiday parties or Christmas dinner.

A Night at the Nutcracker

Similar sweater. Similar skirt. Houndstooth coat. Nutcracker pouch.

A majority of this outfit is something you can find in your closet! If you have a neutral sweater and skirt combo all you need to invest in is a purse, and even though it’s something I only use once a year, it was a great investment.

Pretty in Plaid

Red plaid dress. Short sleeve plaid dress.

Plaid is such a great holiday pattern. These dresses would be perfect for a Christmas Eve party. The LL Bean boots give it a real New England look!

Sweater Weather

Ribbed cowl neck sweater dress. Cable knit sweater dress.

The first dress linked has the fun cowl neck while the second one comes in a great holiday red! My favorite part of this outfit was that my earrings had little bows on them! Kate Spade has cute bow studs, but I got my drop earrings from Charming Charlie (same place as my Nutcracker purse). If you’re like me and loved accessorizing from Charming Charlie, I have good news for you- they’re coming back! As for your Christmas look, I’ll give you bonus points if you coordinate with your dog!

I hope this helped give you some ideas on what to wear this holiday season. Let me know what you’re wearing in the comments below!

Weekly Style 23: Vineyard Vibes

IMG_0529

Today’s Weekly Style is a look I took to the Vineyard!

I went for last summer’s sailor shorts from Banana Republic Factory. You can’t see them in this photo but they have the cutest buttons on the front for the ultimate nautical look. While they didn’t have navy this summer if you’re looking for something on the nauti side, check out these striped ones! They also come in red (which I also have, oops). If you’re looking to add these to your closet act fast, they’re selling out!

The shirt is a Banana Malibu tee. These are my favorite shirts from Banana, they’re lightweight and perfect for hot summer days.

My bag is the classic Vineyard Vines Tote. It’s bug enough to carry my wallet, my S’well bottle, and whatever books I pick up while I’m on the Vineyard… it’s usually more than one!

My shoes are my go to Kelly&Katie Sandals. While this style is not available anymore here are the Poppie sandals from DSW which are very similar!

My sunglasses are also a summer staple and they come from Old Navy!

Stay stylish!

Weekly Style 18

In two weeks I will be finishing up my orientation for physical therapy school! I’m so excited to start this next chapter of school! One of the requirements for my program is that for certain classes we have to dress professionally to prepare ourselves to be in the working world. As someone that isn’t so fond of khakis I need to get creative… quickly.

All that being said, today’s post is going to be all about business casual clothing from Banana Republic Factory!

First up is the Ruffle Sleeve Top:

I absolutely love the color and the sleeves! The perfect thing about this top is that the sleeves mean you aren’t required to throw a cardigan or blazer on over it!

Next is the Layered Tunic Top:

This top is such a cute color and it would look good with a black blazer and gold ballet flats. I haven’t tried this top on (yet!) but it also looks a little longer meaning it would pass my teacher’s “no belly no booty” rule. If you like this shirt but are looking for a different color it also comes in white and black!

Here’s another Layered Top:

I love light blue! I also love the neckline of this one. It also comes in pink, white, or blue. If you pick the blue it would look great with a statement necklace like this one from J. Crew Factory.

Then we have the Collarless Pleat Sleeve Blazer:

Now I’m not a blazer person but I will definitely be trying this on soon! I am obsessed with the sleeves and will be keeping you all updated!

Lastly we have the Texture Pop Color Academy Blazer:

So it seems like pink is the color of the day… But this is just so cute! If you picked out the black version or white versions of the shirts above they would look awesome with this!

That’s it for my intro to business casual but stay tuned for more to come!

Stay stylish!
