OOTD: Pineapple Dress for the Win

OOTD: Pineapple Dress for the Win

Last night I went to a Secret Santa party and instead of being the conventional ‘holiday festive,’ I added my own twist to Christmas wear. The three colors that generally signify Christmas are straight up red, green, and gold; instead, I chose for my color palette olive green, maroon, and pale yellow. I think that all of these colors go so much better together than the typical crayon colors. The main focus of this outfit is, of course, the pineapple dress. It adds a great Hawaiian twist to the holiday season without being obnoxious.

Because it even gets cold in SoCal, I paired this outfit with black tights, a brown cardigan, and an olive green jacket. Details will be listed down below.

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 🙂

And here is me, wearing my enormous cardigan over a black and white floral outlined skirt, patterned tights, and a simple black top.Image

Sweater Weather

Sweater Weather

Yet another fall outfit (when it’s still way too hot for sweaters)! But hey, I like to be prepared. Fall and winter are seriously the only seasons I actually utilize my skirts, so I couldn’t stop myself from going crazy with the fall outfits on my blog.

Also, has anyone ever listened to the song Sweater Weather by The Neighborhood? If you haven’t, do it now.
