Friday Faves – Holiday Party Outfit Ideas

It’s that time of year where we’re all starting to realize Thanksgiving and Christmas are just around the corner! Naturally, this means you have to start planning some fabulous outfits. I wanted to share a few stunning holiday party outfit ideas, there’s some absolutely gorgeous options out there – and of course, nothing says party like sequins and metallics!

What type of holiday parties and events do you have on this year? I’d love to hear what the vibe is where you live!

I’m a big believer that even if it’s a relaxed brunch catch up with friends, it’s oh so right to wear a few sequins or metallics. Great style and fashion is all about the unexpected and taking a little risk. The trick to styling it is mixing high and low, so choose your favorite jeans and a classic top, then mix it with sequin flats or heels. So effortlessly glam! Or for a dinner date, wear black skinny jeans, a crisp white tee and a sequin blazer. It’s a never fail option that always gets compliments… I get so much wear out of my sequin blazer! It just makes getting dressed so easy, because you simply wear your favorite basics and add the blazer, which instantly creates an amazing look.

Do you have a few go-to holiday season outfits? I’d love to hear about them, or a key piece you love to incorporate.

Style Sessions – Cool Girl Leather Jackets for Every Budget

There’s nothing cooler than a leather jacket. It’s a style staple every woman needs in her wardrobe and whether it’s day or night, a dress or jeans, classic cool girl leather jackets will elevate any outfit to instant fashion ‘it girl’ status.

I believe in investing in quality pieces that never go out of style. I bought this Vince Leather Jacket around four years ago and wore it on the weekend, only to have no less than six people ooh and ahh over it, and of course ask where it was from. Point being, even though I shelled out a pretty penny for it, the cost-per-wear has been ridiculously low… I have lived in this every fall and winter for years.

Do you own a leather jacket? Do you think they’re a style staple? Today I’m sharing cool girl leather jackets for every budget…

Style Sessions – Race Day Outfit Idea

This week I traveled to Melbourne, Australia for the Melbourne Cup Carnival. It’s one of the biggest events in the country – literally the entire nation stops to watch this race! Every year for most of my life, my Dad and I have done a Father / Daughter trip, we choose something fun or adventurous to do. It’s always really special to spend time with my Dad. He loves horse racing and in the last year our family welcomed ‘Glitter Top’, a beautiful future race horse who is currently in training. In the years to come, we hope she’ll one day make the Melbourne Cup Carnival.

Fashion is a big part of racing and I wanted to share my race day outfit idea. I wore this gorgeous L.K.Bennett dress (they are one of Kate Middleton’s favorite designers). I love the structured top with blush and ivory embroidery, which then seamlessly connects with a floaty knife pleat skirt. It’s such a gorgeous dress and I really feel when you invest in quality pieces, it elevates your style in such an effortless and elegant way.

I paired this dress with my go-to Celine Bridge Sunglasses (these are everything, they instantly add a little cool to any outfit) and Chanel 2.55 Classic Flap Handbag, it’s from What Goes Around Comes Around on Shopbop and was gently pre-loved, but seriously looks brand new.

Also, when you’re at the races it can be a long day. To ensure my makeup lasts on special occasions (including my wedding day!), I use Urban Decay All Nighter Long Lasting Makeup Spray. It’s incredible, you just spray it on after your makeup is done and it truly works to keep your makeup perfect aaaall day long (it also has 291 five-star reviews, so I’m not the only one who thinks it’s incredible).

Style Sessions: Best Fall Boots For Every Budget

I look forward to wearing fall outfits and cool weather clothes – they’re always the most chic looks! Of course, no fall outfit would be complete without a fabulous pair of boots. I’ve got quite the collection and am eternally on the look-out for new additions. I’m sharing the best fall boots for every budget and most of them are currently on sale!

What style of boots do you like wearing? Over the knee? Ankle booties? Flat boots or heeled boots? I personally love a great black ankle boot with a thicker heel, it makes walking all day so comfortable (the pair below are my go-to’s when traveling). I am also in love with my Stuart Weitzman Over the Knee Boots (pictured below), they instantly up the cool factor of any outfit and are actually surprisingly incredibly comfortable and easy to walk in (the soles are a rubber base, so they’re great for snowy or icy weather).

Style Sessions – Celebrating My Sister’s Birthday in Haute Hippie

I love celebrating birthday’s, especially when it comes to my beautiful sister, Georgia. We enjoyed a fabulous morning at the Sofitel hotel with a long, relaxed buffet breakfast. There’s nothing better than sister time!

I feel when you’re celebrating a special occasion, adding some sparkle to your style is always a good idea! It helps to add a fun, glamorous vibe to the event and just makes things feel more special. Do you think outfits help create a special feel to an occasion?

I wore one of my favorite tops, that also accompanied my to New York Fashion Week. It’s the Haute Hippie Kennedy Ruffle Top. Those ruffle sleeves add the perfect mix of fun, combined with gold metallic polka dots over the disctinctly bohomian print. I usually pair this top with my favorite jeans EVER… Paige Verdugo Jeans, I also have two pairs of black denim in Paige Transcend Verdugo Ultra Skinny Jeans, as worn to my sisters birthday below. Seriously, these are the best – and I’m not the only one who thinks so, they have plenty of five-star reviews!

A top like this makes it’s easy and effortless to elevate your favorite pair of jeans…

Friday Faves – Best Shows On Netflix + Fall Fashion Under $100

I don’t know what we all did before Netflix. Actually, I do, we probably got lots more done. There’s just something so nice about crawling into bed after a long day of work, opening my laptop and watching some of the best shows on Netflix with Chris (my husband). I wanted to share a few of our faves today and would also love you to share yours, I am always looking for the best Netflix shows to watch.

So, our number one Netflix show at the moment is definitely Schitts Creek. Have you seen it? Seriously, OMG. Hilarious. I got my mom onto watching it too and showed her how to get Netlifx on her tv, she called and told me she couldn’t stop watching them (and it wasn’t just because she didn’t know how to turn it off). It’s hands down probably one of my favorite shows of all time. The characters are so accurate – it’s just what I envisage a few Beverly Hills trust fund kids to be like… and their parents. Yes. Who’s seen it? I am dying to talk about it, so leave a comment and let’s chat. Who’s your favorite character? I love David, he is just too good!

Best shows on netflix to watch schitts creek review

My all time favorite and arguably the best show on Netflix is Schitts Creek. Seriously, do yourself a favor and watch it! Hilarious.

 

My other fave is an oldie but a goodie, The Mindy Project. This will always have a special place in my heart, I love Mindy! Right or wrong, I find her inner dialogue somewhat scarily similar to my thoughts sometimes. She’s amazing and so relatable. Who’s watched The Mindy Project? Thoughts?

I still need to watch Lady Gaga’s ‘Five Foot Two’ Netflix Documentary. I saw some talk about it on E! News, she seems to get pretty real and candid. Have you seen this yet? What did you think?

Oh and Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt. Poor sweet little Kimmy, I love her innocence and Titus with his ‘Lemonade-ing’ scene will always be one of my favorites. Who’s a Kimmy Schmidt fan?

I’d love to hear what shows you love, I need some new ones to move onto when I’m finished watching these. I always find it so sad when you get to the last episode… like, what do I do with my life now? When you binge watch a show, does anyone else find you get super invested in it too?

If you haven’t seen Schitts Creek, guys seriously do yourself a favor. Even my husband Chris loves it, so it’s not just for us girls. He’ll say to me at night, can we watch an episode of Schitts Creek before bed?  Umm, YES. Yes we can.

So after I’ve watched my nightly Netflix episode before bed, I usually sneak a little peak at my favorite shops online. We all have our rituals, right? There’s some of the cutest new season style in at the moment, I love fall fashion! These are some of my fave finds this week…

Style Sessions – 3 Wardrobe Basics Every Stylish Girl Needs

I love style that encompasses that unique vibe of classic and eternally chic, but still totally on-trend. I’m breaking down the 3 wardrobe basics every stylish girl needs…

3 Wardrobe Basics Every Stylish Girl Needs

It goes without saying a great pair of skinny jeans in a mid-blue denim tone are a must! What sets apart average jeans from those that are lust-worthy is the cut and way they hug your body. Over the years I think I would have tried on hundreds of pairs of jeans in my never-ending quest for the perfect pair. The day I finally found my go-to blue denim jeans, I think I squealed with delight in the fitting room. My all time favorite jeans are these Paige Transcend Verdugo Ankle Skinny Jeans and with over 175 five-star reviews, clearly I’m not the only one who thinks these are the best jeans ever.

Second on the wardrobe basics list is a white linen t-shirt. It channels all the right effortlessly chic cool girl vibes! A perfect pairing for jeans, skirts and shorts, it’s guaranteed to be the one piece you’ll thank your lucky fashion stars you found. The one I have is currently on sale for just $17 and also comes in black and grey, it’s literally the best.

Last but certainly not least, is a grey sweater. I must admit, I have a penchant for 100% cashmere sweaters. They are completely worth the investment and aside from being divinely soft, they’ll keep you warmer than any other fabric. Whether I’m braving a New York winter or a far more mild SoCal fall evening, cashmere is so versatile and regulated your body temperature almost magically. You don’t have to pay a fortune for cashmere either, every season I stock up on new cashmere from Nordstrom Rack and Century 21.

Do we have any of the same wardrobe basics? Otherwise, tell me – what is one piece that makes your style essentials list? These are mine…

Friday Faves – Nordstrom’s Top Rated Fashion Under $100

These are the best of the best! I’ve found Nordstrom’s top rated fashion under $100. I always look at reviews when I shop for things online, do you do the same? I like seeing what other people have bought, tried and loved! One of my favorite stores is Nordstrom because they just have really cute fashion to suit my budget, whether I’m going through a saving or splurging phase (and side note, this is not a sponsored post at all, I just always find myself shopping there).

I’ve found myself really attracted to all the classic, but super on-trend neutral tones lately – they’re just so flattering on everyone. So I wanted to find the highest top rated fashion under $100 and these are all perfection. Many have hundreds of five-star reviews – and even one with 982 five-star ratings!

I hope you enjoy browsing Nordstrom’s top rated fashion under $100, I own quite a few of these and can personally attest to their brilliance. Do you have any of these? I’d love to hear your thoughts. Or if you have a fashion piece you are obsessed with, please share it in the comments below! Let’s all share with each other the best finds out there (that won’t break the bank).

Style Sessions – The One Pair of Shoes You Can Wear With Anything

If a shoe-napper came along and took every pair of shoes you own, girl you better hope these aren’t part of the heist. I am obsessed with nude heels because they are the one pair of shoes you can wear with anything.

Surely I’m not alone in my love of neutral nude heels? Do you own a pair of these beauties? I can’t tell you how many times I’ve had to race out the door and thank my lucky fashion stars that I have these. No matter the outfit, these are the only pair of shoes I own that work with every outfit. Whether it’s jeans, pretty dresses or even tailored shorts, a day event or something more glammed up at night… these are it.

I’d love to know… do you feel the same way? If you don’t have a pair yet or you’ve worn your current heels to death, I’m also sharing the best nude heels under $120, so you’ll look gorgeous without breaking the bank.

My favorite pair are these Steve Madden Daisie Pointy-Toe Pumps, they’re just $89 and have over 40 five-star reviews! I also love these neutral sandals, Vince Camuto Corlina Ankle Strap Sandals, they’re only $99 and have almost 300 five-star reviews.

In case you’re new here, Style Sessions is live every Tuesday. It’s all about sharing what we’ve been wearing, or if you’re on a budget, a virtual outfit you’d love to wear! Every week I also select someone to showcase as ‘Head Stylist’ in the next edition – it’s a perfect way to meet new bloggers, showcase your personal style and your blog.
