Outfit Ideas for the Holidays + a Paris OOTD

Walking in the Flatiron, NY wearing Paris Fashion Week outfit for the Holidays

The week of Thanksgiving and it’s officially the holiday season! With all the yummy food opportunities, it’s a time to slow down and give thanks. This coming week is also a great time to score some Black Friday and Cyber Week deals as well as get ahead on any holiday-related shopping. I will be posting gift guides in the next few weeks, but now is a good time to plan holiday outfits and get them on sale if you can. The best items always sell out fast this time of year, so it helps to start your search as early as possible.

Outfit Ideas for the Holidays

Faux fur and similar types of whimsical or statement-making jackets are always a good bet to complement a holiday outfit, and this season they are particularly popular. Love how you can completely change an otherwise simple outfit with a bold jacket.

I wore the outfit in this post during Paris Fashion Week earlier this fall. This “tinsel” jacket which I bought at Century 21 right before the trip dressed up my look while keeping me warm! Best of all, it was marked down to less than $100. Currently sold out, but you should check out some of their other jackets like this one from by Rachel Roy and this one by Avec Les Filles.

Scroll through to shop some of my fave jackets for the season, all on sale!:

 

A black dress is a closet must-have for any season. For the holidays, it can be a life saver. If it fits well and you feel confident in it, it’s worth the purchase as you can re-wear it multiple times by changing up the accessories and, or course, throwing on a fun jacket. 😉

Some dresses:

 

Another option is a black skirt that can be paired with any top including ones already in your closet. The one I’m wearing in this post is, hand down, the best, most flattering skirt I have ever owned. Made of good quality with a fabric that is not too thin and has just the right amount of stretch, it is cut in a way that tapers perfectly. The layered pattern in the front makes it incredibly leg-lengthening. If there was only one piece that I could’ve added to my  wardrobe, it would have been this skirt.

 

Of course, another great way to elevate an outfit is with shoes and accessories. Bought these Stuart Weitzman sparkle boots last season which I am still totally obsessed with. They are no longer available, but below are some other options.

PFW – Andrew Gn Spring/Summer 2019

ANDREW GN Ready to wear spring summer 2019 _Paris fashion week september 2018

As with many of you, Fall is that time of year when I’m the most excited about fashion. There’s something about the after summer ‘back to business’ mood mixed with a change to more fashion versatile temps that makes this season fresh and unique. And when I see a collection during fashion week that seems to celebrate the art of fashion as well as respects the craftsmanship of creating beautiful, wearable clothes, I’m especially excited. Andrew Gn Spring/Summer 2019 is one of these collections. Continue Reading →

PFW – Redemption Summer 2019

Redemption Summer 2019 - Models walking for finale of runway show in Paris for Fashion Week

During Paris Fashion week, I attended the Redemption Show for Summer 2019. Having gone to their show last year as well ( see my post ), I was particularly excited to view their collection. Creative Director, Bebe Moratti, has a style aesthetic for the Redemption woman that is in line with my own, and based on their previous shows I expected a beautiful mix of elegance, rawness and drama.

NYFW – KÛR Spring Summer 2019

Look 7 from the KUR Spring Summer 2019 Runway Show

Whether it’s in New York or Paris (haven’t attended LFW or MFW yet!), one of the things I love about attending fashion week is the opportunity to discover amazing new designers and brands. KÛR by Kasuni Rathnsauriya is one of these brands.

During NYFW this past week, I attended the KÛR show for Spring Summer ’19. Founded in 2009, this clothing line is not new but was new to me. For this season, the collection, referred to as “Compact Traveller”, represented a blend of professional and off-duty looks. Per the show notes, “From office to urban adventures, this is the ‘new way she travels’.” Continue Reading →

Things To Do In NYC Before Summer Is Over

The end of summer always comes faster than I want it to and this summer is no exception! There are still lots of things on my to-do list including some things that were purely for entertainment like taking the time to enjoy NYC. If you’re from the area or familiar with NYC, then you know that summer is a weird time here. Compared to the rest of the year things actually seem to slow down (just a little at least) as many of its residents as well as regular population take off for long weekends to the beach and other vacay destinations. I, on the other hand, love to take advantage of this time to appreciate the city when the mood is a little more relaxed. Also helps to be free of all the layers required during the cold weather seasons… 😉

Fortunately, we still have a few weeks left of summer weather. So if you’re in the area, here are my fave things to do in NYC right now.
