Hope everyone had a great holiday weekend!  I’m so excited about today’s post because it marks the start of a new series here on the blog.  I don’t know about you guys, but I have always been obsessed with “Get the Look” and “Look for Less” posts.  I think they are so much fun and a great way to recreate emerging trends and celebrity looks when you don’t have a lot of $ to spend.  I truly believe that you don’t have to wear expensive things to look/be fashionable and I think these kind of posts are proof of that.  Not only so, but I think trying a different look out can be so inspiring and really helps to push you out of your comfort zone.  I want this series to be something a little different for you guys and that’s why I don’t want to limit it to just trends and celebrity looks.  If you like a character’s look from a particular t.v. show, movie, music video, really anything you can think of I would love to hear your ideas!  🙂

Now on to this particular look – When I saw this picture of Zendaya wearing denim on denim, I instantly fell in love.  It’s so effortlessly chic and takes me back to Britney Spears circa 2001 in the best kind of way.  What I really like about this style is that it almost looks like the top and bottom are one piece like a jumpsuit.  Add some black accessories and a red lip and you’re good to go!  As I was mentioned before, you don’t have to break the bank to recreate this look.  This top was $15 at Forever 21!

When the bandana neck tie trend emerged last fall I was immediately in love.  It’s so perfect the way it draws in all of your attention with the bright pop of color against a neutral outfit.  Not only so, but it also might be world’s most inexpensive accessory.  I purchased this one on Amazon for $2.00, but you can find bandanas at Walmart in every color for just $1.00.

Quick tying tutorial…

The simplest way to tie this is to fold the square in half into a triangle.  Tightly roll it so one end reaches the other.  Then, wrap it around your neck and make a knot in the front.

Thanks for reading!

Okay, so I spoke waaaay too soon with the whole “it’s been a mild winter thing.”  Last weekend we were hit with the Jonas blizzard and as you can see by the huge piles of snow it was pretty intense!  I was basically trapped inside all last weekend, but it was so incredibly relaxing doing nothing for three days straight. Although it’s super cold, I’m obsessed with the way that the camel and brown in my outfit pop against the white snow and my white pants.  There’s something really striking about neutral colors against a blank canvas.  I hope you guys have a happy Friday and a great weekend!

The only thing I love more than a holiday party is a formal holiday party.  This white faux fur stole is the perfect accessory to add a little extra glam to any dress in your closet.  I also love tucking it into my coats and wearing it like a collar.  Accessories can make all the difference!  I also like to add a touch of sparkle whenever I go to a party, so I incorporated a shiny hair barrette and bold statement necklace.  What’s your favorite holiday party accessory?

P.s. I linked a few other long lace dresses that I think would be really cute for formal holiday parties!

If you’ve been following along for awhile, then you know that I kinda have a thing for bows.  Especially during the holidays, I think they add an extra girly and festive touch to almost any outfit.  I also love the way a red cardigan really makes an outfit pop.  You can definitely expect this one to be on repeat all winter long!

On another note Thanksgiving is tomorrow so I just wanted to wish you all a Happy Thanksgiving! (:

Love,
