Hello and Happy 2019!!! I really wanted to have this post up before the clock hit midnight on January 1st but to be completely honest, I was spending some time off of social media to enjoy quality time with friends and family over the holidays. These are some of my holiday outfits and outfit inspirations from this past season that I believe will also carry over to the next holiday season!
First is the whole lookbook video followed by still photos.
I hope you all had a wonderful holiday season and a Happy New Year! I am so excited to see what 2019 brings.
Statement pants have been an obsession of mine probably since I bought my first pair of floral culottes from Zara around three years ago. A friend of mine was doing a closet clean out and I honestly could not understand why anyone would want to rid of these paisley kick-flare leg pants but I swiped them up in a heartbeat.
These funky pants can definitely be worn in a business setting with the paired blazer but, for keeping my style true to myself, I wanted to make them into a “professional going out piece.” I styled a super cropped top from Forever 21 revealing my waist and threw a white blazer over it to keep the look chic, and semi-appropriate.
I had a lot of fun shooting this look and want to wear it in real life once it’s not scorching hot in Kansas City. Great transition look from dinner to night on the town.
I feel as if many of my outfits are quite simple but I love to also stand out. A statement jacket can bring just about any look from 0 to 100. I went from a tank and jeans outfit to a full on military inspired look, just by adding this jacket that I bought at Chopin in Italy around seven years ago. If you want to stand out, it is important to have some statement pieces or jackets incorporated into your outfits.
Thank you Jason Atherton for shooting these photos for me so last minute. We shot these in the mall and I love the people walking in the background. It makes these images so real and alive and shows that you don’t always need the most beautiful background to create good content.
