Christmas Eve Dinner with Friends: Holiday Look No. 3















 Oasis Frankie Bubble Leather Biker Jacket c/o, Oasis Blue V Front Back Vest c/o, Oasis Multi Shadow Petal Flippy Skirt c/o, Visible Interest One Oak by Sara Celia Necklace c/o, Visible Interest Poppyor Grain Diamond Stud Earrings c/o, Visible Interest Poppyor Bound Ring c/o, Falke Black Opaque Tights, Zara Track Sole Heel BootieShiraleah Silver Olivia Cell Phone Wallet

One of my absolute favorite things to do is pair a leather moto jacket with a sweet, feminine outfit.  The mixture of hard and soft is very much a part of my personal style and a look that I never seem to tire of. I would have to say the same as far as my taste in jewelry goes. I love simple, dainty jewels, but also find myself drawn to rougher, edgier pieces at the same time, which is why I love the selection Visible Interest has to offer.  I guess I'd like to think I'm a tough chick, but who am I fooling? ;P

This is such a lovely outfit for that fun evening out with friends on Christmas Eve. If it's super chilly where you are, try pairing this rad Oasis Frankie Bubble Leather Biker Jacket with a faux fur vest a top, a chunky knit scarf and leather gloves to keep you nice and toasty throughout the night! If you don't already have a leather jacket in your collection, it is absolutely life-changing and will transform your wardrobe like you wouldn't believe. This specific jacket is super solid, great quality and the cut is perfect for pairing with literally anything from skirts, to jeans, dresses, jumpsuits, you name it! Not to mention, the price is right on point and it's currently on sale!

I also love how versatile each one of these Oasis pieces are. Just think of all the ways you'd be able to work this solid colored blouse, flouncy skirt and badass moto jacket into your closet. Even better, the jacket, top and skirt can virtually be worn throughout every season depending on how you accessorize. Who doesn't like a little more bang for their buck?!

Christmas Day with the Family: Holiday Look No. 2
















My latest obsession this fall/winter has been oversized sweaters! Waking up on a cold morning all I want to do is pull a cozy knit sweater over my head, slip on a pair of tights or my favorite faux leather leggings and top the look off with a hat. Simple, chic & warm! The perfect recipe when it's hard to crawl out of it and get motivated to dress for the day.

Christmas tends to be the little sister of Thanksgiving in my family, so I'm likely to fill my belly with lots of yummy eats. Between commuting to Long Island & stuffing my face, comfort and warmth is super important to me. This oversized grey cable knit jumper dress by Oasis is a must have! So roomy, soft, warm and versatile! Aside from pairing this piece with tights,  I love this jumper over jeans and leggings. It layers wonderfully under Oasis' Navy Blue Penny Pea Coat for more of a classic, tailored look, but would look just as wonderful when worn with a moto jacket. 

I'll admit I'm all about monochrome look, but I'm also a big fan of breaking up the color palette of my outfits. Adding this massive, ultra soft red and navy plaid blanket scarf makes this look increasingly more festive! Blanket scarves are all the rage this season and its no surprise why. They have the capability of adding a cool texture and the potential to add a nice pop of color to neutral outfits and they are the coziest accessory to date! I love me a good blanket scarf! I zipped on my favorite cognac booties I scored last year at Madewell, popped on the hat that began my hat obsession from Free People, and lastly, opted for this super cool Three Spikes Cuff from Visible Interest by designer Stefanie Sheehan and, once again, reached for one of my favorite pieces of the moment, the Gold Sawtooth Ring by India Morgan.

I can't believe Christmas is less than a week away! Have you planned out your outfits for the holidays?! Stay tuned for even MORE outfit inspiration!

Unconventional Holiday Look No. 1
















Oasis Large Falling Petal Skater Dress (on sale!!) c/o Style House PR, Nasty Gal Cat Skills Coat, Visible Interest India Morgan Gold Sawtooth Ring c/o Style House PR, Visible Interest India Morgan Sawtooth Lariat Necklace c/o Style House PR,  Katie Diamond Charlie Ear Climbers, Falke Tights
Steve Madden Black Patent Pumps (similar here)

Today's look is my take on an unconventional holiday outfit that I absolutely love and, in my opinion, is festive enough to rock to all your holiday parties! This amazing Large Falling Petal Skater Dress by UK powerhouse brand Oasis is a little Hollywood glam mixed with a sprinkle of edge and a whole lot of sass! Mixing stand-out prints can be tricky, but as soon as I saw this dress, I knew it had to be paired with one of my favorite cold-weather finds last year--my Nasty Gal Cat Skills Coat! I find these patterns and colors compliment each other quite wonderfully and make this look a bit more exciting and interesting to the eye.

I topped off the look with black opaque Falke tights (some of my most favorite tights EVER), simple black patent pumps and jewels that pack a punch, yet are still simple enough that they aren't overpowering this stand-alone bold look. This gold Sawtooth Ring and gold Sawtooth Lariat Necklace by designer India Morgan is right up my alley! I discovered India Morgan through a tastefully unique website called Visible Interest that is a prime online boutique where you will find some of the best fresh and modern upcoming jewelry designers at all price points! There is virtually something for everyone & I can't get enough!

Add a serious POP of color to these rich winter neutrals with Kat Von D's sparkling irridescent magenta Studded Kiss Lipstick in Lullabye (THE MOST STUNNING SHADE OF VIOLET FOR THE HOLIDAYS!!), line that water line with Cynthia Rowley's creamy metallic eyeliner in Silver and pump up those lashes with Urban Decay's Perversion Mascara to draw attention to those gorgeous eyes! I kept the hair simple, by parting it more to one side, curling my hair in its entirety, pulling it all to one side and pinning it with some seriously sturdy bobby pins to keep everything in place!

VoilĂ 
You're ready to party in some serious style guaranteed to make you stand out in the crowd!
