Marks The Spot

Take a walk on the wild side…literally! This looks is not for the faint as these printed pants are the complete opposite of discreet. They actually combine two of my favorite things. The first is the most obvious and that is the leopard print. I am a proud member of the “Leopard is a neutral” club and I pay my dues every month. The second is that these are from NYDJ, which if you read my denim favorites post, they are listed right on the top. So in conclusion, these were made for me.

I think that what I love most about these printed pants is that they are super versatile. Even though it’s a very busy print, you can still rock it with a sleek blazer as I’ve done, an edgy moto jacket and booties, and also a sexy top for a night out. As you can see here, I let my Elomi bra peek through the tank top to show a bit of the lace. With lace camis being so on trend, I though that I could make my own version. Needless to say, these pants can be worn for many occasions and they will fit right in.

Since my style tends to lean more on the simpler side, this ruched blazer and tank top were perfect pairings. In my opinions, blazers can go with just about anything under the sun so there’s no surprise. Also, pumps are my faves and these beige suede pumps brought out the color of the pants so well. Overall, this look is bold and daring yet still sophisticated…just like I like it!

Sparkle & Shine

You may be thinking to yourself, “Kristine, another sequins outfit?”. And my answer would be “absolutely!” While this is my third outfit that features some sort of sequins garment within the last month, who’s counting! There is no better time to take advantage of wearing this festive fabric than the present. And this was yet another garment that I could not pass up. A flare hem, gold sequin skirt that was under $40?! It was practically calling my name. Then once I slipped it on, I knew that it was a winner. It has some stretch, which is necessary for me and the waistband is perfect for holding everything in place. It’s everything you want a sequin skirt to be and that is fun, flirty and festive.

Since the skirt is the highlight of this look, I paired it with a simple black top and strap up heels to complement. I opted for an off the shoulder top since its my favorite way to show a little skin this time of year. The shoes were a step up from just a plain high heel sandal but also doesn’t take away from the overall look.

Did someone say December?! I clearly could not wait to wear some festive styles with sequins being one of my favorites. As you can see in this post that I published last month, I already dabbled in it prematurely. However, holiday season had already begun so I convinced myself that I could get away with it. Now that December is officially in full swing, I’m not holding anything back!

The best thing about sequins is that you get a lot of bang for your buck. You can not only rock it to a holiday party or work event, but you can also ring in the New Year in style. It’s perfect for either one of these holidays and it will always be a showstopper. This particular item combines my love of blazers (of which I wear year round), and also my obsession with sequins around this time of year. It’s super chic and you’re sure to be one of the best dressed wherever you decided to rock it.

This blazer is not available in plus size unfortunately, which I think is a missed step on the brand’s part. While it does go up to an XL of which I’m wearing, it would have been great to have it in the full range. However, they do have this same sequins fabric available in items that are plus size that I have listed below. They are equally as cute and so fun to wear to your next event. Be sure to check out all of the outfit details.

Fall is on its way out and Winter is on its way in. It’s definitely getting chilly here in Los Angeles so sweater weather is in full effect. Although Southern Cali doesn’t have true Winters, hence this off the shoulder sweater, I’m still trying to rock Winter style, the LA way. Check out below for my round up of sweaters (including this one) that you can rock for the upcoming season. Stay warm out there!
