Holiday Laye{rings}



With the Holiday season almost upon us I can't help but feel the urge to prepare myself. After all, it's my favorite season! Some of my favorite colors for the Holiday season are the obvious red and green combination or simplistic winter white, but I also love glamorous gold and when I stumbled upon these Forever 21 golden goodies I couldn't resist, they're all under $5! I started layering jewels and rings this way this Summer and I can't believe I didn't start doing it before, when done right it's not a cluttered mess but a perfectly glamorous addition to any look, and I love it!

P.S. Be sure to check back throughout the month for more Holiday treats and ideas!

Intimidated












Ralph Lauren White Button Down & Nike Crewneck Sweatshirt (similar here) -  similar layered button down and crewneck here (it's on sale too!) / eShakti Grey Floral Skirt c/o (30% off until 10/16) / COACH Cross Body Purse / Target Oversized Watch / Bauble Bar Pearl Drop Earrings / Gold Frame Aviators (similar here) / Steve Madden Quilted Faux Leather Sneakers (on sale!)

Pencil skirts always intimidated me as something you could only wear to work - never on an easy day off. And the longing to create a look that could encompass both simplicity and comfort with a pencil skirt brings me here! I've been loving the look of "Peter Pan" collars for years, the femininity yet boy-meets-girl appeal when paired with a looser blouse or sweatshirt over the top is a combination that can't be beaten in my book. I tried to keep this look on the more put together side of things for brunching and what not, but you could easily make this look even more wearable by switching the top out for a chunky sweater, the sneakers for your favorite gym kicks, and a baseball cap for that laid-back "cool girl" look. It's crazy to think that a year ago all I thought you could could wear with a pencil skirt was a blazer, boy have I learned!
