Happy Elfin’ Holidays

Holiday graphic sweater Holiday graphic sweater Holiday graphic sweater HOLIDAY SWEATER | SELFMADE LEATHER SKIRT | SIMILAR KNEE SOCKS | VINTAGE PURSE 

Can anyone else not believe that Christmas is literally in a week?? I have been a major procrastinator with the gift buying this year so I will need to squirm at the last minute to get everything together but that’s part of it all right?! I guess I just like the challenge.. or that’s what I’m going to tell myself!

I love a good graphic tee, and so how could I not pass up this fun holiday themed sweater from Target! I know that the whole ugly sweater trend has been around for a while, but I usually think that half of the “ugly” ones are actually kinda cute.. Anyway, this one is so funny and it brought a smile to my face so I hope you love it too!

 SIMILAR CAPE | VELVET SKIRT BELOW | NUDE HEELS | PETER PAN COLLARED SHIRT (with bow tie included!)| BOW TIE | SIMILAR VINTAGE CLUTCH

To me, velvet feels like the perfect holiday fabric. It is warm and cozy but still chic and not bulky so it is perfect to dress up without feeling like you will be freezing.. which was always a problem up here in the Northeast. This velvet pencil skirt may be the easiest diy sewing project ever, but I think that the result is really nice and looks a lot fancier than you would have guessed! I paired it with a bow tie and cape, but it could be dressed up or down for any holiday occasion. Hope you enjoy!

Love you all!

VINTAGE FUR HAT (SIMILAR HERE) | LEATHER JACKET | PATTERNED CROP TOP (SIMILAR HERE)| MOM JEANS

With the cold weather here, I find that I am always bundling up. Even though wearing a hat is necessary most of the time, you can still have fun with it! I love how cozy and warm this hat while still being a statement piece.

Hope you guys have a great weekend!

DIY Christmas Decor: Merry + Bright

I have been really into decorating for Christmas this year. I think it is because Char and I have our own place this year so we can finally decorate together and I just love being in the holiday spirit! One of the first things I made was this little merry + bright wire decoration. I swear it is the simplest thing to make, you literally just curl it into cursive letters, but is such a simple and cute decoration. I know this isn’t really a tutorial, but hopefully you can get some holiday inspiration from it and make it your own!

What is your favorite part of decorating for Christmas?

LEATHER JOGGERS | VINTAGE SILK BLAZER | STRIPED TEE | SIMILAR BACKPACK | HAT WITH FUR POMPOM | WEDGES

I love the mixture or all the patterns and textures in this outfit, but I have to say my favorite part is these leather joggers. I am quite obsessed. They are not something that I would have instantly picked up, but once I tried them on I knew I needed them. They are comfortable like sweats but look so much more put together. I have been really loving the whole track pants and heels look lately and am definitely on the hunt for some more because I have a feeling they will be on repeat all winter!
