Alright, we are finally midway through November so it is time to start talking holiday outfits. Generally I don’t go too overboard with special clothing, but each year I like to add a few new pieces that feel Christmasy as well as wearable during the year. Here are few items I have either purchased or are eying.

Printed Ponte-Knit Stevie Pants for Women - Red Buffalo Plaid

I don’t know when it happened, but Old Navy came out with a new pant style called Stevie. It is a mix between leggings andΒ dress pants and is totally work appropriate. I found this super cute buffalo plaid version of the pant and decided I had to have it for the holidays. I will wear these to our holiday work event and maybe a party or two. They will also be great for church services or a big Christmas dinner as they have lots of stretch. Even if you hate buffalo plaid check them out and see the other colors and prints.

Looking for something a little fancier? I am in love with this take on the little black dress. Perfect for a nicer work party, cocktail party of even New Year’s Eve. (If you decide to leave the house.)

What outfit is complete without a matching phone case? I love swapping out cases depending on my mood and the season. I am eyeing this one. It is fun but still a little classy in case you need to whip it out in a meeting. My current non-holiday favorite case is this one from Amazon.

One of the best ways to dress up an outfit or bring new life into it is via a snazzy handbag. I generally go for very plain muted bags, but something like this really makes an outfit. Pair it with a simple dress for almost any holiday event. Looking for my current go-to everyday bag? It’s this one.
I hope these ideas have given you a little wardrobe inspiration for the holiday. If anything take the time to reevaluate your own closet and see what older items might be able to be styled with newer items to create new outfits. Don’t forget to accessorize!

Fall fashion in warm climates

As a resident of Florida and a basic girl I have the same problem every fall. I want to wear all the cute clothes but I also want to not die from overheating. Everyone on Instagram is going around sharing all these cute sweaters and boots and scarves and I am just sitting here hoping I can make it through the day without sweating through my tank top. I want all the cute things, but I always have to ask myself if it is really practical. Over the last few years I have learned some ways to make fall fashion work in florida.

LightweightΒ layering pieces

Skip the heavy sweaters and go for light, open sweaters. These can be paired with a tank to give the illusion of layers and fall color but without dying.
Here are a few I like:

 

Skip the boots for booties or mules

I know those mid-calf boots are adorable but they just don’t get enough fall wear around here. Try simple booties in a light color or mules. Although I have not yet jumped on this new mules trend I plan to get a pair soon, maybe in leopard. The best part? They are slip ons!

 

If you must wear a scarf, pick a thin breathable option

I opt for light cotton options. These are a little harder to find in the fall, but keep an eye out year round for scarves in fall and all-seasons colors.

 

Skip the tights

Tights are all the rage with skirts and dresses this time of year, but just skip them and go bare. A denim skirt with booties is a super cute fall look and your legs will thank you. Now that denim skirts are back I am just wishing I still had my old ones from high school.
