Oh the holidays, they can either make or break you. Fortunately for me this time around I had my amazing sis get away from the freezing temperatures of NY and come visit us here in the sunshine state. I missed her so much and my wallet definitely suffered as we made up for lost time shopping our lovely brains out. Stay tuned for haul pics of those many items purchased (yes I bought myself a lot of christmas gifts, I deserve them!) Here are some snip-its of our experimental outside photo shoot. Enjoy!
-Love Ari baby (please say the baby)
For my first look I went with a semi-fall ish outfit since it was nice enough to bare some skin but yet still appropriate for fall boots and blazers.
My sparkly gold top was thrifted while the light weight grey floral blazer was on clearance for $10 at target! I love stalking my local two target stores and waiting and watching items that I see them continually mark down. The thrill of the hunt!
Here is a similar blazer from target http://www.target.com/p/xhilaration-juniors-floral-blazer-natural/-/A-14287153#prodSlot=medium_1_47
The shorts are old grey high-waisted (a must have for my body shape) trousers from forever 21. I am currently craving these babies http://www.forever21.com/Product/Product.aspx?BR=f21&Category=bottom_shorts&ProductID=2030186690&VariantID=
The most recently purchased item were these amazing high buckled boots. They are half pleather and half suede. They are so chic with a wedged heel and super comfortable to walk in. They also fit my calf area nicely with or without jeans which is typically a major problem for me with boots. I also got them on sale when forever 21 was having a 30% off all boots sale a couple of weeks ago. Love, love and love.
Lastly this is my favorite Jason wu straw bag from his original target launch. I pair it with basically anything I own since its so neutral and casual. It’s so beat up and It’s no longer available in stores but I’m most certainly sure they probably have some floating out there on eBay.
The next look didnt photograph as well but I still desperately wanted to share these pants with the world before they completely sell out on asos. This skinny trouser is the perfect menwear inspired piece but with a major twist! The sexy side mesh inserts with polka dot print make for an unexpected element. Everytime Ive brought these babies out Ive received so many compliments. They are worth the investment for dates, causal outings, even sexy evening wear! I paired them with a satin button up from forever 21 and a set of black gold capped heels as well as flats for a more casual spin on the look. It’s still currently on sale on asos reduced from $50 to $30. GO GET IT NOW!
Thats all folks….
