Girls’ Night Out – Holiday Shopping

Unless you’re the type of person who does their holiday shopping mid-summer, the mad rush of shopping has just begun. Stores are preparing for the notorious Black Friday and Cyber Monday, malls are playing the Carol of the Bells, and Bath and Body Works has all their Christmas scents lined up. There is a sort of hype in the air; an excitement, a warmth. If you plan on participating in the chaos that is Black Friday, or leftover Saturday, take some friends along, and dress up! Here are two outfit ideas for a girls’ night out of holiday shopping:


First and foremost: wear comfortable shoes. I prefer my combat boots. In addition, I am wearing one of my favorite summer dresses turned fall with my cut-out black tights and burnt orange cardigan. To add that touch of class, I am wearing my pearl necklace (always does the trick). Rebecca is wearing this great maroon and dark navy top from Target, black leggings, a gold collar necklace, and a gold dragon ear-cuff.


So there you have it: two different takes on fall outfits. I hope this is of some inspiration for the holidays 🙂

Chunky Jewelry

As seen in my previous post, I got this necklace and earring set at Georgiou for a total of $22. Now, I don’t know about you, but I have a hard time finding chunky jewelry to match the clothing in my closet. To put it simply, I have never really liked the way large jewelry looks on me – I prefer simpler, dainty items. However, I think that this necklace is the perfect transition from dainty to chunky (if that makes sense).

For one thing, I think it looks a bit more classier than most chunky jewelry. The gold rimming around the stones tones down the loud colors, and the layout of the stones is simple and elegant. Also, I like that the earrings don’t necessarily match the necklace in shape and size. They only match in color, so as to both compliment and put more emphasis on the necklace. The necklace is definitely a statement piece. As seen in my previous post, it can be paired up with a simple sundress for a casual day out, or I feel it can be worn with a solid black maxi dress for a more formal night out.
