NYE 2017 Look Book - 9 Looks, 9 Occasions

"Look at life with the eyes of a child." ~ Henri Matisse

Hey hey sweetie pies, I am beyond excited that Christmas is 4 days away! I have been getting so caught up with Christmas that I have yet to think about NYE! The reality is that NYE is a little over a week away! I don't know about you guys but my plans are still up in the air so of course I have no idea what I am going to wear! With that in mind I figured this would be the perfect time to create a New Year's Eve lookbook with pretty much every occasion in mind! You read it right, I created 9 unique looks for 9 different occasions. I will also share my thought process behind creating each look. This look book inspired me so I hope it does the same for you. Enjoy!

Formal
This look is definitely a look for a formal party. If you have a black tie event that you are intending, you always want to make a good impression. I wanted something that would stand out without being too flashy. This nude dress is perfect as it will stand out among a sea of black and sequins. Its silhouette and bardot style exudes sexy in a modest way. Let your accessories do the talking with gorgeous statement earrings and a just as glamorous clutch. Opt for a nude heel so it doesn't overwhelm the entire look.

Dinner Party
For this one you can definitely go more casual than the previous look. I am loving the blazer dresses at the moment. They are so chic and sexy without exposing much. I found this one and I love the material and color! These rose gold boots are so gorge and cover you up a little more. The great thing about rose gold is that it pairs with both silver and gold. For this look the gold earrings were so cool and the lariat would lay so well on the chest. Complete the look with this rose gold clutch and you are good to go!

All White Party
I figured I would create a look for an all white party. This dress is perfect for hugging those curves and cinching in your waist. It can be a struggle trying to find white shoes during the winter time so I just opted for gold booties. You can opt to do any pop of color you like, I am just really digging metallic at the moment. I love the fun drop earrings completed with the clutch - love the stripe detail. Clutch is big enough to hold the necessities - keys, phone, cash and cards.

See a Show
Perhaps you are going to see your favorite comedian, check out a jazz club or maybe even to see your girl at a burlesque show 👀 this is the look for you. Dare to stand out in a sea of dresses with these gorgeous wide leg pants paired with this sequin crop top. These embellished pumps are super glam complimented with the faux fur scarf. The hat paired with these statement earrings and gold cuff makes it too cute for words! Complete the look with a fuss free crossbody bag with chain strap.

Bar Hopping with Friends
I had so much fun creating this look because I didn't know what occasion it would be for. I was just creating to be creating. :) I love this colorful sequin dress. Dare to be colorful and do something a little different. When bar hopping you are in and out of those cold temps so this light and stylish leather jacket is perfect! Opting for some combat style boots are better for walking around on sticky bar floors. If heels aren't your thing you can definitely opt for flat combat boots to achieve the same look. I chose the clutch because it is so cute and unique but a mini backpack or a crossbody bag is more practical. Kept my jewelry simple with silver hoop earrings.

Night Out with the Girls
If you are planning to hit the club with your girlfriends then this look is for you! This sexy off the shoulder is on trend and perfect for dancing the night away. Pair it with some platform heels for more leverage. I know when I go out, I rather just have on a fun pair of earrings because I am too busy dancing the night away! I opted for this acrylic box clutch because you don't have to worry about it getting dirty plus it is super small and stylish!

House Party
Hitting up a house party? Then this look was created with you in mind. For a house party, I wanted the look to be super trendy with edge and comfortable. I fell in love with these lace up mom jeans paired with a graphic tee and some sneakers. I opted for embellished sneakers because it is NYE after all but any sneaker or boot for that matter could work with this look. For accessories I opted for a bakers boy cap, a choker necklace and these major hoop earrings. Top it off with this chic faux fur coat and you will be the coolest one there! If jeans aren't your speed you can definitely opt for a leather or denim skirt!

Church
I usually wear some form of a midi dress or midi skirt with blouse to church but I figured for a night watch service, I would wear something a little more casual. This jumpsuit was just that while still covering everything. It is super comfortable and flattering on the body. Compliment the jumpsuit with these beautiful pumps. I especially love the detail on the heel. Some fun tassel earrings and a gold bow clutch to complete the look. The sequin blazer is optional and definitely not a requirement. The look is complete with or without the blazer.

Home
If your NYE plans include the couch and your tv then this last look is for you! Grab your comfiest leggings with a simple tank and chunky cardigan. This look screams comfy! Whether you are curled up with the kids, your significant other and/or pets - this is perfect look to lounge around the house. Count down to 2018 in comfort with these adorable house slippers and you are set!
What are your New Year's Eve plans? Did any of my outfits help you with deciding what to do/wear? I would love to hear your thoughts in the comments below!

How to Make Metallic Work for your Office Wardrobe - Twirling in Rose Gold

"To dare is to lose one's footing momentarily. To not dare is to lose oneself." ~ Soren Kierkegaard

Hey hey sweetie pies, happy Tuesday! One trend that I am loving for Spring is the metallic trend. I am spying it everywhere from shoes to clothing to accessories. I raved awhile back about my obsession with this skirt that I got from Charlotte Russe. I love it so much that I had to feature it again on here! For this particular look, I opted to for a more work appropriate ensemble. I paired it with this ruffle blouse that I got ages ago from New York and Company. Even though this piece is no longer available, I linked some ruffle blouses just as fabulous as they are affordable below.




To keep it business casual, I opted to pair it with a blazer and my fave booties. That way you are still covered but fashionable. You can totally make metallic work for the office by letting it be the focal point and pairing it with neutrals. That way you won't be going overboard, especial…

How to Style - B+W Striped Dress 3 of 3 Ways

"We must be willing to let go of the life we planned in order to have the life that is waiting for us." ~ Joseph Campbell
Hey hey sweetie pies I am excited to show you the third way that I styled this dress from Rainbow. I opted to wear it tunic style with a pair of jeans and strappy heels. If the length is too long you can opt to leave two or three buttons closed and tie the ends of the shirt into a knot. It helps you  pull off that easy casual look. You can easily create variations of this look by swapping a few things. You can easily swap out the heels for some flat mules for the perfect casual spring outfit. Or you swap out the jeans for long distressed shorts with sandals for sexy casual look. Even though I have styled this dress 3 ways, the options are really endless. Make sure to check out the 1st or 2nd way that I styled this dress. Which look is your fave? 1, 2, or 3?! Leave your thoughts below I would love to hear!
