Hey my loves!

Ok so for this installment of Wednesday’s Wish List I’m still focused on my work wardrobe. I want to switch things up a bit with my style this year so for this look I mixed the masculine with the feminine to create this chic look.

Wednesday's Wish List pt. 2 Feminine Edge

Leather jackets (or faux) are staples in everyone’s wardrobe. It is the perfect outerwear item for the fall besides  a fall trench coat. Leather jackets can be paired with practically anything, depending on the look that you are going for. You can pair it with jeans and a t-shirt or even your most feminine dress. So I paired a faux leather jacket with fire red slim cropped pants, a white light-weight sweater with cut-out details and a pair of flat gold metallic captoe ankle boots. The pants and sweater are what’s feminine about this look. These two items can be paired with heels for a dinner date or girls night out. The boots and jacket gives this look a slight masculine edge. The sunglasses and handbag finish of the look. You won’t need much jewelry for this look because you have quite a few elements to focus on already. Remember sometimes less is more.

This weekend we got a taste of spring. The sun was shining and the temperatures were in the high 50s. I was able to shed a layer, but I won’t be fooled in to thinking this great weather is here to stay. I don’t get sick very often and I want to keep it that way.

We won’t be in winter mode for long, so if you have yet to start your shopping for spring, check out what Mango has to offer with this selection of items curated by me. Enjoy!

Christmas is this coming Sunday and so if you are not wrapping gifts, fighting through the crowds of last minute shoppers, or standing on extremely long lines, you are probably thinking about what to wear. Well don’t fret, as always we’ve got you covered. Check out these looks that will have you ready for Christmas

1. My go-to look: The Sweater Dress. I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE, sweater dresses. They are the easy things to throw on because they require little maintenance and are perfect pieces for layering. Pair with a colored blazer, over-sized cardigan, skinny belt, riding boots, ankle boots, OTK Boots…the options are endless. Try going for a sweater dress in a neutral color for more layering options.

2. If the sweater dress is a little too casual and you want something a little more glamorous then opt for something with sequin or shimmer. Whether it be a top, or a sweater, keep it subtle since most likely you will be in a small family setting. I’m pretty sure you do not want to look like the ornaments on your Christmas tree.

3. So if the last look was too over the top, then get in to the holiday spirit with a festive sweater. No I am not talking about the sweaters that the old women wear on TV that light up or have tons of little Santas and reindeer on them. Think more of the Bill Cosby pattern, something that says winter wonderland, but remember not to bombard your family with tons of little snow flakes. Wear the sweater with your favorite pants or dark denim jeans for a more polished look.

4. The last look features 2 huge trends right now; plaid skirts, and over-the knee- socks. The look is very preppy and perfect for a chic look for the holidays. Since the temperature is steadily dropping I would pair my OTK socks with some tights of a different color for warmth and to add a contrasting color.

Stay tuned next week to see what look I chose to wear on Christmas day! Happy Holidays and Happy Shopping!
