Green for Christmas

I love red and sparkles so much, sometimes I forget about wearing green during the holidays.  So when I saw this choker top at Express, I knew it would be perfect back to my favorite black faux fur vest and studded booties.  And not only does this look work perfectly for the holidays, it will work well beyond the month of December too.

Faux Fur

When I was in the 3rd grade, my auntie gave me a gorgeous white fur coat for Christmas.  And let me tell you, I was absolutely enamored with it.  That is until I overheard she and my mom talking about it on the phone and the fact that it was made from “bunnies”.  And after I heard that, I never wore the coat again.  But even though I learned form a very young age that I was not a proponent of real fur, I did stumble upon a love for faux fur that has never wavered.  And every year when the temperature drops, I look forward to pulling out all of my faux fur pieces, especially my faux fur vests!!

Glam

I’ve learned a lot about my own personal style since I started on the journey of writing this blog.  I’ve learned that I like pants and jeans.  A lot.  I only like to wear dresses and skirts in the warm summer months.  I hate tights. But I really like button down shirts.  I love jewelry and accessories, but even though I own a lot of fun costume jewelry (and good jewelry too), I find that I tend to gravitate towards the same pieces on a daily basis.  And while I probably dress up a little more than most of my friends, I would still define my style as casual.  I’ve learned that glam isn’t necessarily a go-to look for  me, but it is definitely one that I enjoy every now and again-especially when I feel like changing things up during the winter months.  And I have found that perhaps the easiest, no-fuss way to achieve a glam look (while still maintaining a casual vibe), is pairing a  faux (of course!) fur vest, a pair of over-the-knee boots, some chic gold jewelry, and a bold red lip back to a simple sweater and favorite pair of jeans.  A glam look that even the most casual of us gals can easily achieve…

I hope you all had a wonderful weekend.  I have been miserably sick, but still managed to salvage somewhat of a decent weekend-with the highlight being soaking my aches and cough away in the hot tub with Christmas music playing in the background, and snow falling all around.  Sick or not, this really is the most wonderful time of the year!

Thank you so much for stopping by!
