Embracing the new year with a hot cup o’ joe + a cozy look. It’s back to the grind + I am invigorated + ready to kick ass in 2019! I have to be honest, 2018 was pretty freaking amazing up until NYE (let’s just say I got not so great news just hours before ringing in the new year while I was in bed sick ugh) but luckily my boo, always thinking positively got me excited for a new year, a new chapter + a new me!!
I am not one for New Year’s resolutions but I do have a few:
1. Kick ass in business
2. Continue to grow the blog
3. Travel more
5. Continue to loose weight (thanks to Jenny Craig)
6. Think positive + exude happiness, as my boo likes to say…You get what you give and in 2019 I am giving all good vibes in hopes of receiving the same back!
And of course…share more of my favorite outfits, products, tips + tricks…starting with this chic winter look!
My goal for winter is to share more warm weather looks. Since I am in LA I tend to rock dresses + comfy clothes year round + I realized in order to relate to everyone else in the world, I need to go back to my NY routes + share some chilly weather ensembles.
With the chilly winter weather, I am all about bundling up + being cozy and what better way to do that than cozied up in something fuzzy…like maybe a faux fur vest 😉 From fuzzy coats to furry accessories, I am loving the teddy bear cozy trend so I rounded up some of my favorites above + below! What I love about all of these furry picks is they not only keep you warm, they keep you stylish all winter long…Which would you rock?
I am gearing up for a festive NYE complete with club bed + DJ pillow :p hehe What can I say, my boo + I aren’t big party people so we will be enjoying watching the ball drop in our pjs following a romantic dinner. Even though we are just heading to dinner, I love to get dressed up + make a splash (or should I say…sparkle hehe) so I will be rocking this look for New Year’s Eve.
I have been wanting a sequin blazerFOREVER + when I got this beauty I fell in love. My BF looked at me like I was crazy but I assured him with the right outfit…it will work 😉
I had to let the blazer do the talking so I paired it with my trustee lace trim camisole (a perfect layering piece for every gal’s wardrobe) + faux leather leggings. These leggings are my absolute FAVORITE. I wear them for date night, girl’s night + all the time basically – they are flattering on pretty much every body type + can be dressed up or down for any occasion.
For some added ‘bling‘ factor I pulled the whole look together with my fav Gucci Pearl Belt (another must-have if you ask me :p).
I am getting ready to pop some champagne, dance on some tables + SPARKLE ✨ OK…maybe not dance on tables hehe…we will be having a quiet night at home but I am for sure ready to sparkle + what better way to do that than with a chic sequin skirt!
I have been wanting to pull off a sequin skirt for years + figured NYE is the perfect time to go for it! The key with a sparkly sequin number like this one is to let it take center stage + not overdo it with the other accessories.
I paired this skirt with a simple black chiffon camisole (to not overdo it with the sparkle) + a fuzzy jacket since whether you are in LA, NY, Vegas, Miami or anywhere else, NYE tends to get chilly + I am always cold so this jacket is style while also cozy.
I went simple with my heels + bag. You can never go wrong with black pumps + a classic Chanel!
I feel every gal should invest in a classic Chanel flap bag (they retain value if you ever want to sell it) + they match with everything. I feel the same way about black pointed toe pumps. I have never put on an outfit that black pointed toe pumps couldn’t match perfectly with.
Whether you are trying to find the perfect dress for NYE or even one for a girl’s night or winter date night, I am all about the gold vibes this season. I love when a holiday dress can be transitioned to year round wear, so this off the shoulder gold one is perfect. While it is festive enough for the holiday season, I will for sure be wearing this for my next date night + maybe even Valentine’s Day :p I am all about re-wearing pieces you can style over + over again.
I love this chiffon like material (although I am not one for ironing or steaming haha :p) but it is so feminine + flowy, making it one of my go-to’s. Style it with boots, style it with heels, style it with flats…it is always a must-have for every gal’s closet.
I linked to some similar styles below that are sure to stun this NYE.
As for heels, I went with my go-to nude patent leather pumps. These are ones I believe every gal should have in her shoe closet. They are perfect for work, play or just about any occasion. I say it’s worth investing ins a high end pair that will last a while since you will get a ton of use out of them.
My clutch is an oldie but a goodie. If you are looking to get a Louis Vuitton bag but at an affordable price, this clutch is perfect…it is the Toiletry Pouch 26 and retails for under $500.
