Holiday Outfit Ideas from Amazon Prime

Follow my blog with Bloglovin

I cannot imagine a world without Amazon Prime. It has become my go-to shopping destination for EVERYTHING, and I don’t remember how I ever got on without it!

You really can’t be it. Amazon ships at lightning fast speeds and has a ginormous selection. I especially love shopping for clothes on Amazon! If I need more comfy and affordable leggings and tunic sweaters (#momuniform) or dressier options (holiday party outfit), I open Amazon on my laptop or iPhone.

As of right now, I have no holiday outfits! So as I was searching Amazon Fashion, I figured I would share my favorite holiday outfit combinations with you! Let me know which is your favorite! read more

Welcome back! How’s the holiday shopping going?! My mom helped me finish up most of the wrapping today. It’s dizzying, isn’t it?

You can go many places in this winter outfit… Have a holiday happy hour for work? Wear this look to work and head on out to the bar! (You may want to wear flats during the day.) It’s the perfect winter casual chic and classy holiday outfit. read more

Let Your Style Shine with a Wood Watch from JORD

I have always liked to stand out from the crowd when it comes to my style.   I cut all of my hair off in high school and rocked a pixie cut for four years!    But aside from my hair, I love to amp up my outfits with unique accessories, like my JORD wood watches.  I get sooo many compliments every time I wear one of my JORDs!  They look sleek but also extremely unique!

These cool watches can complement any style: casual, dressy, artsy, edgy… I am positive that if you’re reading this post, you can let your style shine with a wood watch from JORD!  (And help a loved one shine by gifting him or her one of these beautiful wood watches this holiday season!)  Keep reading to find an INSTANT 25% off coupon and early access to JORD’s Black Friday Sale!

My JORD Watch: Cassia

This is my most recent addition to my JORD watch collection.  I chose Cassia because I love the contrast between the 100% natural wood band and the large metallic dial.  You will see in the photos of my outfit that this watch totally allows my style to shine!

Another reason I chose Cassia is because the wooden band is interlaced with metal links. This is the Zebra + Ivory combination, but this unique women’s watch also comes in Olive + Aegean Blue and Walnut + Vintage Rose (goooorgeous!).

 

My Style + JORD Watch

Back to the women’s watch.  Honestly, who do you know who has a wood watch?!  Wouldn’t you strike up a convo with them if you saw them wearing one?!  That’s what happens to me, and I have to say, I love it.  Haha.  Those interactions make me feel super stylish and give me a reason to tell people I have a fashion blog!

My style is pretty casual, so it was only natural that I showcased a casual look. Plaid and red are currently trending, and the Zebrawood with the ivory face really gives this outfit some extra oomph.

If you missed my springtime post about my Fieldcrest JORD, catch it here.  These wood watches are great for any time of the year!

Pssst… JORD also has a beautiful line of men’s wood watches as well! You can see a sneak peak of my husband’s in this photo. It looks hot on his arm!  I’ll be doing a more in-depth post on his watch next week!  I bet the guy in your life would love a wood watch!  If you already know he would like the men’s watch below, you can view it here.Let Your Style Shine with JORD- unique wood watch, women's watch, women's wooden watch

Holiday Outfit Ideas for Any Type of Gathering

I love this time of year!  The Christmas bells on commercials, the decorations, the music… But it is also a hectic time of year.   The other day, I realized that I hadn’t had time to purchase any new holiday outfits yet, so I decided I wasn’t going to buy a holiday outfit this year!  Why?  I wanted to make the most out of what is already in my wardrobe.  And because I went shopping in my closet rather than the mall, I found countless affordable (Do they count as free?) outfit possibilities.  Check out my holiday outfit ideas for any type of gathering: dressy, casual, daytime, nighttime, and pretty much anything in between.  Let me know which outfit is your favorite!  Also, I have linked similar items under each look so you can shop!holiday outfit ideas for any type of gathering

Holiday Outfit Idea: Semi-Casual

This outfit features one of my favorite LC Lauren Conrad tops, which I shared on the blog about a month ago.   The winter green color of this tunic top just screams holiday, and I made it less casual by adding pleather leggings and heels.  This outfit is modest yet noticeable, so it’s super wearable.

Holiday Outfit Idea: Casual

This red blazer stood out to me the moment I set foot in my closet, and I knew I wanted to use it, but I wasn’t sure how at first.  I ended up pairing it with a sparkly gold blouse and dark-wash skinny jeans.  Then, I topped (or bottomed) off the look with black leather wedge booties and a patent leather clutch.  Side note: I scored this Michael Kors clutch at Marshall’s a few years back.

Holiday Outfit Ideas: Different options for dressy

I’ve got three dressy holiday outfit ideas that are on various points of the dressy spectrum.  I used the same BCBGMAXAZRIA sequin dress in all 3 options.  (My husband gave me this dress as a gift last Christmas.  I know, he has good taste, right?!  Best dress ever!)

The Dressy Dressy Option

I’ll definitely wear this exact look at some point during the season because it’s simple yet stunning.  I love the sparkles!

Where am I headed in this dress?

  • a fancy holiday affair, such as a black-tie optional event
  • New Year’s Eve party in the city
  • an elegant holiday dinner

The Fun Dressy Option

I saw this summery lace top in my closet and thought the mixtures of lace and sequin would be super interesting.   The contrast  between the colors is eye-catching as well.  Out of all these holiday outfit ideas, this one really stands out to me, and all it took was one simple change!  How easy is it to slip a shirt on over a dress? ?  I’m so glad that even though I hadn’t worn this top in years, I kept it around.  Cream lace is kind of my addiction and what I am always drawn to, so keep your addiction in mind next time you clean out your closet.  Sometimes, age doesn’t matter!
