Holiday Heels

When I have an occasion to go to that requires me to dress up, I have to say I am not quick to throw on a dress and do it up that way. I do not imagine my holiday calendar being packed with parties, but there are a few get-togethers that are tentatively on the calendar. I am sure that most will be decked out, and awesome for them. But knowing me, I will be getting decked out a different way.

These JBrand Velvet trousers are exactly what I picture wearing. I swear everything always comes back in style eventually. I had a pair of black velvets 15 years ago when I worked in the city that I loved. They are loooonnnng gone, but the style is back again. These can be found at

With this fitted black blazer from Zara as the topper. Simple and can be worn dressed up or down later with jeans and trainers. Try for similar looks or this exact style.

And it is always about the shoes. They will always be my downfall.

Sigh. Oh how I love these. Not happening, but I love them. These are also on Add a long gold delicate gold necklace and a visit to my hair guy for a perfectly imperfect blow dry and I am good.

This is what I am picturing. The idea can be replicated in countless ways, with varied price points. What I like is that truly these are all basics for a night out and some version is probably already in your closet.

Wishing for a full shopping cart

This COWLNECK PONCHO from Zara is on my wish list. It looks amazingly soft. Perfect to throw on and go about the day.

This simple  WOOL DUFFLE COAT WITH FUR HOOD also from Zara is not in my typical grey or black color comfort zone, but the price is right on and the simple lines are right up my style alley.

I absolutely love this DRESS WITH TIE WAIST also from Zara. It looks so soft and comfortable. Perfect for the transition into fall and cooler temperatures in my part of the world.

Rag and Bone does it again with the perfect not black and not grey wash. These can be found on Shopbop.

And this entire outfit by Rag and Bone would be on that wish list too. Also found on Shopbop.

A wish list is so fun to have.

Denim Duty

Everything will eventually come back in style, maybe with a few tweaks here and there, but certain pieces will make a reappearance. It might take a few decades. So after I have been kicking myself for losing my denim skirt years ago, I decided to get a new one. Here are the looks that just get it right in my book.
