Oct 28, 2019



hope you all had a beautiful weekend! it went by way too fast - I worked all day saturday and then sunday we had a full family day - which is super fun but so exhausting! today, I am hanging with the babies all day and trying to catch up on all the things - home stuff, work, fall fun haha everything!

- - -

in other AMAZING NEWS, I am SUPER DUPER EXCITED to partner with NORDSTROM to share some of my holiday style with you! NORDSTROM is probably my number one place to shop for all the things - apparel, shoes, accessories and beauty, as well as kids clothes and shoes! they literally have everything and carry all the brands that I LOVE! 


cardi // velvet cami // jeans // booties // chain belt // bag

my holiday style is mostly casual because our families love to just hang around with each other exchanging stories and literally eating all day so being comfortable but still cute is definitely key! I tend to lean towards wearing jeans or leggings and a cute top or sweater and booties! this first look is probably something I would wear to a holiday dinner with family - the LACE VELVET CAMI dresses up the jeans and I added this RED CARDI for a nice holiday pop of red - I don't know about you, but red totally makes me think of the holidays so I always get one piece that's red. ps this TORTOISE CHAIN BELT is probably one of my favorite accessories of the season! so chic and totally adds a littel something to an outfit!

i also really LOVE mixing textures in the fall and winter, which is why i'm so drawn to this velvet cami with the lace details and this BEAUTIFUL PURSE with the mix of embossed croc and faux suede, which also  comes in a gorgerous red and snakeskin print!! SO PRETTY !!




top // skirt // shoes (similar here & here // bag

as much as I love being casual and cute, I also enjoy dressing up around the holiday season - all the pretty dresses and skirts, and I love pairing skirts with sweaters and cozy tops, like this DOLMAN SLEEVE RIBBED MOCK NECK TOP. midi skirts are also so on-trend right now and this MIDI SKIRT with double side slits (which also comes in black) is so feminine and pretty. I absolutely love this dark wine/burgundy color for the holidays - so rich and bold, but not over the top. this monochrome look is both classic and chic! definitely an outfit I repeat over and over in various ways during the holidays!



leather jacket (similar here & here, both under $100) // velvet cami // pleated midi skirt (in black, here) // booties // bag

here is a more edgy dressed up look for you! I love mixing feminine pieces, like this PLEATED MIDI SKIRTwith a BIKER JACKET and BOOTIES ! definitely feel more dressy but cool, and of course you don't actually wear the jacket, but drape it over your shoulder for instant cool factor, hehe, jk you can wear it too! and again mixing textures with this bag, cami and skirt combo and can we talk about the color of this skirt! all the heart eyes, such a gorgeous red for the holiday season!





sweater // midi skirt // bag, also love THIS option // shoes // earrings

another sweater and midi skirt combo! I cant stay away, this OVERSIZED SWEATER with balloon sleeves is so pretty and versatile for this tiem of year! and it comes in so many colors! I have my eye on the grey one next! war it with skirts, jeans or leggings  - it has great length too! also this little SNAKESKIN BAG is so pretty with tortoise chain strap! 




sweater // jeans // booties // bag, outfit would look great with the RED version too // chain belt // earrings

another easy look, swapped out the cami + cardi for this oversized sweater and added a statement with SNAKESKIN BOOTIES! these booties are the exact same pair as these BLACK ONES I shared, recommend sizing up 1/2 size, these booties are the BEST! I am so SO HAPPY with them! they are comfortable and so flattering on! I love the pointy toe and the V-cut detail at the ankle! I will be wearing these booties all season long....I may have even just purchased the tan ones! they're that good that I need THREE pairs!!



hope you enjoyed seeing a little bit of my holiday style! please share which look if your favorite or what you like to wear during the holiday season!

YAY for getting half way through the week!! it is SUPER hot here this week -- major summer vibes and all I want to do is wear sweaters and boots!! the weather is so crazy these days!! 

anywho today I am sharing two looks with WALMART - pieces from Sofia Vergara line that is exclusively sold at Walmart! She has some major on-trend pieces especially all of the animal print that I seriously cannot get enough of! If you have been following me for a while, then you know my LOVE for leopard print runs DEEEEEP! like I legit want allll the things! and I have a pair of Sofia Vergara leopard print jeans from the spring time, slightly lighter color but I had to have THIS PAIR too - slightly darker and perfect for fall! I definitely believe animal prints are neutrals and can be worn so many ways! you could totally dress these LEOPARD JEANS up with booties or even pumps, a cute top and blazer for work, heeled sandals and a moto leather jacket for date night or dress them down with a sweatshirt and casual boots for lunch with friends or a tee and jacket with sneakers for running around. they are really SO GOOD! I also am new to the snakeskin print trend, I honestly thought I would never go for snakeskin, just never drawn to the print before, but lately I have been LOVING the print and these SNAKESKIN/PYTHON print jeans are so cute!! they are also super versatile and on-trend! These jeans are also super affordable - under $30 and super flattering in my opinion!! i styled both jeans a little differently, wearing a black bodysuit also by Sofia Vergara and I love it, stretchy and soft, perfect for layering in fall and winter! also, can we talk about this SHAGGY FUR JACKET - so fun for fall and winter - would also look good with a pretty dress for holiday parties - totally makes a statement and I love it!

check out my two looks below! 

{ LOOK 1}

fur jacket // bodysuit // leaopard print jeans // black booties (similar)

{ LOOK 2}

denim jacket (similar ) // bodysuit // snakeskin print jeans // sneakers (similar)

FRIENDS!!! my number one item i recommend for you if you are shopping the sale, is getting a jacket - especially one of the leather/faux leather jackets! the moto jacket styles are my absolute favorite and a definite closet must-have for fall and winter!

so check out my faves below! 

i am obsessed with this LEATHER BIKER JACKET - the color is so pretty and definitely different than other ones i have - definitely a splurge but i have a couple jackets by this brand and they are AMAZING quality and will last forever! this year i wanna try something different, so i just got this faux leather DRAPE JACKET - super excited about styling this for fall!

OK friends!! here are my favorite picks for women's activewear! so i love active wear and incorporating activewear pieces in my normal everyday outfits - comfy, casual and practical especailly when i'm busy with the babes! 

i'm a sucker for leggings and joggers! i love these airbrush ones by ALO, and I am super excited that the faux leather leggings from SPANX are on sale again this year! so if you missed out last year, you have to get them if you've been thinking about them! they are SOOOOO GOOD! they really look amazing on all body types and suck you in just right, plus their high waisted, if you're a mama, you know that high waist is LIFE! haha! I also picked up this JACKET, because i am obsessed with sherpa for fall and winter and i love that this is a zip up and not a pullover, plus i could NOT resist this rose color!

especially when the shoes are on sale!!

shoes are one of my favorite items to shop for, especially during this sale - there are so many cute ones! last year i surprisingly didn't buy any boots or booties because i wasn't wearing them that much in the fall. i stuck to mainly sneakers so this year i am excited to pick up a couple new pairs of boots. i am thinking one pair of booties and maybe one classic tall boot! i haven't purchased tall boots in a while and i think this year i should! hehe!

here are my favorite picks so far of the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale shoes!





there are soooo many good shoes! i will definitely need to think clearly on what type of shoe i need for fall and which ones i know i will wear a lot! but such amazing deals on great shoes! also don't forget to follow me on to see my try-ons and other exclusive content!

which ones are your fave??
