Holiday Ring Guide to Sparkle You Up!

bannerI have been really in to bling rings lately. I have never really been one to focus on the fashion of my hands. I don’t get my nails done, I am so bad at moisturizing, and I have terrible habits that leave my hands looking…well, not so nice. However, I do try and dress them up with rings (so that people don’t notice the fact that I have zero nails).

Since the holidays are right around the corner and gift giving season is in full swing, I thought a little ring round up would be nice to show you what is out there right now (and for how much!).

Hopefully you all found what you were looking for this year in terms of fashion rings! One of my upcoming New Year’s resolutions is to wear more hand jewelry…and work on my awful nails (no more bad habits!!). We will see how that one turns out…

19 Camo-Stripe Looks to Copy…

BANNERI am obsessed with everything fashion and one trend I am loving right now is pattern mixing. Pattern mixing is anything that combines two or more patterns. Personally, I stick to mixing two patterns and one of my favourite combos right now is camouflage + stripes. So many bloggers out there have done up their own look using camo and stripes. So I am pulling my favourite renditions that I have found out there…

Camo and stripes can totally be BFFs.:

I love rounding up my favourite looks from different bloggers because it spreads the word about these fabulous ladies and the marvelous fashion that they showcase. Camouflage can scare some people, but I say try it! Why wouldn’t you? Start off small with camo accessories if you are feeling a little anxious. Then work your way up to the larger pieces like tops and bottoms!

Pairing camo with stripes or another pattern is a fun way to mix up your look – give it a try!

The Preppy Side of Pinterest: Christmas Looks

THE PREPPY SIDE OF PINTEREST-

I have been a bit absent these past couple of days. As we head into finals season, I have been absolutely swamped with assignments, studying and trying to maintain my sanity. So, I took a couple of days off. BUT, I am returning today with some great Christmas looks for you…straight from Pinterest (just the inspiration you need this holiday season). A few weeks ago, I showed you my top three must-have looks for this holiday season.

Today, I want to show you some of the preppy looks that I am loving this month…

Classic Red Tartan – I have a thing for plaid and this look screams classic Christmas. Red tartan is the best tartan, and here, paired with a black sweater, a string of pearls, matching red tartan heels and a dark crimson lip is perfect. This season, midi skirts are completely in. Many people think that midi skirts are for tall people, and tall people only. Not true at all – try the length with a pair of heels to boost your height, and you are golden!

Dressy dressy at the Mall – There is nothing wrong with sporting a skirt and tights around town for the holidays. Just because the snow has come to stay (which we don’t have by the way…), doesn’t mean you can’t show off those legs in the Winter and get your cute on! This outfit below emphasizes the importance of layers. The turtleneck under the plaid flannel, which is under the wool pea coat. Not to mention, the hunter green Hunter boots…simply perfection.

Hunter boots *-*-read coat, green skirt, and that plaid blouse! i LOVE this outfit...I really would like to look like this girl.:

The Laid back Lumberjack – Okay, so maybe this isn’t what a lumberjack would sport in the forest, but this look is incredibly cute. From the plaid flannel vest to the staple Bean Boots that she is sporting…I love it all. This look is super easy to recreate and perfect for getting the house ready for the family, hunting to buy the Christmas tree, or even running errands at the mall.

Fur on Plaid – This is an adorable look as well. The tartan, as you know, is already a favourite of mine. However, the fur is a new one for me. I just recently added a faux fur vest to my closet, and I have yet to sport it…but this is one of my inspirational outfits on Pinterest, which is why I am including it today. It is an easy and simple look to recreate with black pants or leggings…throw on some cute heels, or maybe some over the knee boots – voila!
