Outfit Idea // Velvet Trousers

My last holiday look.  My last post of the year.  We will be spending the next week in Michigan with our families and friends, taking a break from work and blogging.  But before I go, I want to share one last outfit, a comfy, cute New Years look.  I found this pretty pretty Free People top on super sale and paired it with cozy velvet mustard trousers.  The best best part of these pants, is that the have an elastic waist!  Score one for the Christmas cookies!  Paired with my favorite super-soft fur bomber jacket, this is look is perfect for a casual New Years.

Outfit Idea // Plaid Blazer Holiday Look

For my second holiday look (see the first here), I went for the high school band concert vibe.  Just kidding, but that's what I joked as I put it on.  This plaid blazer is definitely a little Blair Waldorf, okay, a lot Blair Waldorf, but it's also a classic that will never go out of style.  The bow tie might be a little over-the-top for most people, but not for the fashion risk takers.  I really love how the red strappy shoes sexify the whole look and the statement earrings add a hit of bling, both accessories take this look to a non-band geek place.  Oh and I forgot to talk about my clip in extensions!  How fun is it to change up your look and add a ponytail at a moments notice!
