Part 2 to my holiday series is festive floral! Sequins and sparkly dresses are everywhere for New Years, and I’m always a fan of the look! But a feminine floral dress is a great alternative to wear, and a wonderful way to stand out amongst the sparkle. With a glamorous necklace and sexy heels, the dress is still perfectly festive to ring in the New Year. Be sure to take advantage of my code for a 20% discount if you are interested in this boho feather necklace.

Black + White Jumpsuit

Yesterday was our first Thanksgiving in our new house. We cooked, we laughed, we ate, we drank! It was a fabulous night full of fun. I hope each of you had a beautiful holiday with loved ones as well. Speaking of the holiday’s, I recently posted a casual look with this knit jumpsuit, but wanted to show y’all how to dress it up for a festive look. A touch of sparkle from this copper jacket and a pair of sexy shoes pulls the look together perfectly. See below for three great jumpsuit options. It’s a versatile piece that can be worn day or night, dressy or casual.

Mixing Patterns

Ever wonder how your favorite celebrity pulls off mixing patterns so chic? It seems so simple, but there is an art to rocking this look. I always hear “I’m nervous to mix my prints” or “It doesn’t look right when I do it”. Once you apply a few basic rules to mixing prints and patterns, you will love embracing the trend. Vests are having a big moment this season and are an easy piece to start with when mixing patterns. This J.Crew herringbone vest has been a staple in my wardrobe for two years and is currently on sale at J.Crew Factory. So hurry and grab it! Below is an easy winter look for mixing pattern that you can easily recreate. I love the pops of red (including my all time favorite red lipstick by Mac) as we enter the holiday season! While I love a red lip for holiday parties, I also like to wear it on days I’m not wearing much makeup (like below). It’s a great way to bring a little color to your face when you’re in a hurry. Scroll down for my 5 easy tips to remember when mixing patterns.

5 Tips for Mixing Patterns and Prints

  1. Remember scale. Pair larger prints with smaller prints like my look above.
  2. Treat stripes as a neutral. A classic striped shirt, skirt, or pant pair with almost any floral, polka dot, animal, or larger geometric print.
  3. Keep it cohesive by picking two prints with the same color scheme.
  4. Think small accents. Pairing two patterns doesn’t need to be a head to toe look. Choose a patterned shoe, scarf, or clutch to accent against another pattern. I have a leopard print clutch that acts as a neutral in my closet. It pairs great with a larger plaid or one of my floral maxi’s.
  5. Invest in a subtle print layering piece – think jacket, vest, or long sweater. Stick to navy, cream, grey, or black. The neutral color will layer over almost anything, and the subtle pattern will pair well with a busier print that has more color.

Pastel Plaids

It’s safe to say that plaid is this season’s “it” look. From clothing to blankets to tablewear you can find this trend just about anywhere and everywhere. Target’s recent Adam Lippes plaid collection was both affordable and stylish. If you didn’t have a chance to check the collection out, many pieces are on markdown now, so hurry! You could even snag yourself a container of mouthwash dressed in the popular print. Lol! While I love all the classic red, navy, and green plaids, bringing in an unexpected color combo, such as this blush sweater is a great addition to your wardrobe. The sweater can be worn year round, but paired with boots and layered over a chambray button down, it’s a pretty pastel winter look. I linked a few of my favorite pastel plaid’s for y’all to check out!

// Adorable and inexpensive poncho option here //

// This Vivienne Westwood leather clutch is adorable at $180 //

// This sweater option is the same designer and print as the one I’m wearing, but with a different cut. Paired with over the knee boots this look would be gorgeous //

// Lucky Brand always makes a great classic button down and this one is perfectly pastel. Pair it with a chunky scarf, fur vest, and boots, and you’ve transformed it to a winter look //
