Outfit Ideas: What To Wear To A Holiday Dinner

Happy Holidays everyone!

It’s that time of the year again! This is the best time of the year to have an excuse to get all dolled up, with our hair did, nails did and everything did. We’re all so caught up in our own lives during the year so why not put on your very best when you visit the family. Yes I know what you’re thinking, we’re just going to eat and sit around anyways so why dress up. Dressing up just makes you feel good and when you feel good it shows and people notice. Not to mention how contagious it is. So go on and spread the good vibes and energy.

With Christmas just a day away I’ve pulled together three outfit ideas to get you through your dinner rounds this weekend. Whether you want to keep it comfy, glam or trendy, get style inspired and shop your favourite look below.

 

Ready to Rock

This is a great semi-casual look for the gals who want to be comfy, with some edge to it. Sweater dresses are super popular this season and they’re a quick go-to piece to make your dinner rounds this weekend.

 

Shop the look!

 

Glam Gal

This look is great for a dinner soirée where a dresscode is implied. Cocktails and o’dourves are served, music is playing and conversations are flowing. Even though you are covered up, this is a very sexy and sophisticated look. Leather is a sexy material, while red is a sexy colour. Put the two together and you have a match made in holiday fashion heaven.

 

Shop the look!

 

Cozy Chic

This is my version of the sweat pants and hoodie plus Uggs. It’s a cozy and comfortable look without looking like you just rolled out of bed. I chose I slightly oversized knit sweater in mustard, an a-line skirt and over-the-knee boots for a casual feel. StyleTip: Pairing a slightly oversized sweater with a dressy bottom will give the same effect.

Leopard Is A Neutral

Happy Friday!

If you don’t know, then now you know! Leopard is a neutral – at least in my eyes. If you think about it, the colours in a leopard print are just black and variations of camel, but paired together they seem more threatening right! Breaking down the colours in a print this way makes it much easier to work with. For today’s look I used the black in the leopard print as my starting point. I wanted the skirt to be the centre of attention so my other pieces were black to let that happen. Always keeping my accessories to a minimum, I added just a statment belt for a hint of glam. Plated belts like these are not only a great way to cinch in your waist, but also a great way tie your whole look together for a clean and chic feel. I finished the look with my favourite pointed toe booties and a coat over the shoulders. The shades were actually a last minute touch because I tend to close my eyes alot in photos. This helped to get better shots quicker. This is a look I would wear over the holiday to dinner or a night out with the girls.

Cheers to the weekend!

I still cannot believe that it’s mid December and it’s still so mild outside. But i’m not complaining by any means. I’m enjoying every bit of it while it lasts.

 
I put together today’s look with a relaxed vibe in mind. When you think of mini skirts, sexy automatically comes to mind because you are showing your legs. Also usually with a-line skirt, pairing it with a more fitted top tucked in gives you a more pulled together look. Instead I wanted to look less put together so I left my white button up hanging over the skirt. I paired it with some pantyhose from H&M, which are super cheap and is usually my go to place to buy them. Over the years i’ve had such a love/hate relationship with pantyhose. They’re such an essential item when you live in a colder climate yet they can be such a pain in the butt. They do wonders for our legs, but god forbid something clings onto it and there goes that pair. I’ve purchased expensive pairs and i’ve purchased cheaper ones. The conclusion is I don’t see a huge difference in fit, but a slight difference in the amount of wears you get out of it. They both get ruined the same way, but with a little hair spray or a little freezing technique (I can’t wait to try) apparently they last longer. I finished up the look with a leather jacket from Suzy Shier and some black booties. Lastly, I tied a gray knitted sweater around my waist for some cool factor. For me this is a great styling trick to make you look less put together, as if little to no thought was put into your look. Paired with a leather jacket and you’re an instant cool chick. Sexy is always the easy route for us women, but try turning that sexy look into something loose from time to time because loose is sexy too.

Happy Friday all!

This is a look I photographed over two months ago when the weather was warm. I didn’t post this look sooner because quite frankly at the time it was not one of favourite looks to date. It’s one of those moment where the outfit looks so much better in your head than it does in photos. Over the weeks it has grown on me and I thought that I would share it with you guys to get a little style inspiration if where you are is warm right now. Keeping in theme with my recent obsession with black and white, I wanted to create a casual sporty look. Even though you cannot see the t-shirt as much, it’s from Zara and it was really a spur of the moment buy. I also love the words of wisdom written on the t-shirt “Not having the time to plan. Sometimes you just need to take a deep breath and start all over again.” The mesh hoodie cover up I purchased in Orlando, Florida at a cute little store in a strip mall. I purchased this one because i’ve been looking for a black mesh cover up for summer for a while now. Too bad I found it at the end of summer, but I definitely can’t wait to rock it next summer and on vacation. Both my shorts tights and flatforms are from Forever 21. The hat is from Urban Planet.

INTRODUCING SILKS HOSIERY ‘SILKS BEAUTIFUL’ COLLECTION plus A GIVEWAY!

                                                                                            image003

Hosieries are the one item that every woman should have in her closet – and let’s not forget how great it makes your legs look. With the temperatures dropping, tights are my go-to for officewear  in keeping the legs warm. Even though I have a love/hate relationship with hosiery, it’s the one item I’ve come to accept that it doesn’t last forever, but I will continue to purchase them and have spares on hand. They’re perfect for covering up on your days off from shaving or to cover recent razer cuts – not to mention the endless amount of styles that will suit any body shape or size.

Silks Hosiery recently introduced their new  Silks Beautiful line of plus size hosiery. The Silks woman is proud and confident.  She steps out with elegance, always looking her fashionable best. Silks Beautiful features a range of hosiery options including tights, panty hose and knee highs that delivers the ultimate comfort and fit for the  woman who embraces her curves. They’re the ideal solution for full-figured women who often experience great discomfort while wearing traditional pantyhose that provides an improper fit and features snug-fitting waistbands that pinch and roll.

Each style in the collection is carefully knit with Xceptionelle, an innovative knit whose construction allows for more overall comfort from waist to toe.  The sheer 20-denier pantyhose (available in black and natural) and opaque 80-denier tight (available in black) both feature an ultra-stretch waist and panty area that eliminates any rolling of the waistband or pinching of the inner thigh area. The inner thigh area on both styles has also been specifically constructed with a higher denier yarn that helps prevent chafing and increases the longevity of the garment.

The entire Silks Beautiful collection are available exclusively at major department stores nation-wide. Prices ranging from $8-$20.
