Fashion, Fun, & a little Food

Tag Archives: holiday party

My friend Alicia has been nagging encouraging me to post more. I’m pretty sure 80% of her wardrobe is picked out by me so she’s probably been a little lost haha. Love you Alicia!

I took yesterday off work and popped by Loft to check out some of their new winter stuff. Unfortunately the five pocket leggings I really wanted to try were sold out, but I found some other cute things. Even better a lot of the things I’m linking to are 50% off!

First off I was wearing camo pants so just grabbed this pair of jeans to use to pair the tops with for pictures. Well, the jeans fit so well they came home with me. In the past I’ve found the modern skinny legs to not be quite narrow enough for me. They’ve revamped this year and I’m in love. The perfect taper now. And let me tell you, if you have inner thigh issues these are the jeans for you. Seriously slimmed mine down while being totally comfortable. Get yourself a pair! I’m wearing a size 27, which I would say is true to size.

This sweater is the only other item that came home with me, although given our current weather situation I’m not sure when I will have a chance to wear it! It is freakishly warm as I’m sure you know and I honestly start sweating immediately in the subway if I’m wearing a sweater. I’m ready to break out the faux fur people! I mean, I’m glad not to have to make the 10 minute walk to the subway in a blizzard, but honestly, it is getting a little ridiculous. 64 degrees mid-December? It’s insane.

But back to this sweater tunic, size down, I’m wearing an XS here and it is plenty roomy. But I love the swingy cut and it will keep me nice and toasty if the temps ever do drop. And it comes in a bunch of colors and will work great with leggings.

I love pieces that you can throw on but have great detailing or added dimension. This two-in-one sweater looks layered but is just one easy piece. Awesome. I would have taken this if they had a small. Wearing a medium here and it was a tad too big.

If you are looking for a great layering piece this sleeveless blouse fits the bill, wearing a small here.

A puffer vest is always a cute layering piece, and this one comes in a few fun colors. Wearing a small here.

This sweater jacket is a bit on the bulky side but might be great if you live in Minnesota or Colorado. It has wool in it though so would recommend a long sleeve shirt underneath, my skin is really sensitive. Wearing a small.

And lastly, a cute sweater dress. I love dresses, just so easy to throw on and go. This one is definitely made of substantial material, good for colder climates, and would look great with tights. Wearing a small.

Last night one of my best friend’s, Angela, had a little girl’s get together at her house. It wasn’t a fancy affair but I wanted to look festive. So I broke out my new jeans (still loving their thigh slimming properties of course) and this blouse I picked up on Black Friday. Love that it is a woven in the front and a knit material on the back, very comfy. And the detail around the neck makes it special. You also all know me and my general boycott of heels over 3″. Well that is until I found these suede beauties, and I now have them in this gorgeous peacock blue color as well as black. Seriously, so comfortable. I also picked up this cute tote over Black Friday and I’ve received tons of compliments, this light grey color goes with everything! (I apologize for the mirror selfie, I really need to get my good camera out here soon!)

Hope everyone is having a fun holiday season so far! Thanks for stopping by!

Mod

Had a great time at my company holiday event last night, what can I say, I plan a good party! : ) Good music, good food, and tipsy bowling always make for a fun night.

Here is a shot of me showing off my mad bowling skills (notice ball heading  into gutter?), and then another shot of me and my friend Amanda – our bowling shoes are so stylish right?

 

I was also super excited to meet a local Seattle celebrity that I watch on Q13 Fox news every morning – Kaci is a reporter on the morning news and happens to be married to one of my co-workers! She was super nice and kindly agreed to come take a picture with me so I could blog about it : )

It was hard to drag myself out of bed this morning after a night of partying, but I managed. I hadn’t worn this pink sweater tunic I picked up at H&M in the early Fall for awhile, so decided to warm it up by layering over a turtleneck. I love that this tunic is versatile for Fall, Winter, or Spring and I feel a little bit 60’s mod today.

Tonight I’m hosting a jewelry party for the line I sell, Premier Designs, for the ladies in my condo building, and am looking forward to enjoying my green chile stew that is currently cooking itself in the Crockpot – yummy!

Happy Hump Day!

Tunic – H&M, Turtleneck – Target, Leggings – Old Navy, Boots – Halogen
