Holiday Looks: Party Ready with Versona

Hi Ladies!

We are officially in the holiday spirit; trees are up and decorated, Christmas shopping is complete (check out our holiday gift guide here if you’ve been procrastinating:)) and the Xmas movie marathons have ensued. With the holidays comes a lot of holiday parties. We are so excited to team up with Versona to bring you two holiday looks to get you holiday party ready. These looks are versatile enough to wear all season long & after the holidays are over! Be sure to enter our giveaway at the end of this post! šŸ™‚

I love the velevet trend but struggled to find a velvet piece that was good quality & didn’t look overwhelming. When I saw this one from Versona I knew it was a must have! How pretty is the burgundy color? It also comes in a deep green that’s equally gorg!Ā You could easily dress this top up with statement earrings (I just purchased theseĀ in blackĀ under $6!) or pair it with a blazer for a work-friendly look (love this one).

Wearing a jumpsuit or a fun pair of pants to a holiday party mixes it up from a standard cocktail dress. Leather pants/leggings are a closet staple in my book! This pair from Versona has a zipper side seem and a zipper detail on the legs making them a little bit dressier (and a better fit) than faux leggings. I ordered a size small for reference. I paired it with these strappy heels but would also look so cute with booties if you need a snow-friendly option:) These would be fun if you want to make a statement!

Does anyone else struggle to find age appropriate dresses, that aren’t too revealing (or short!) but are still trendy?!? Add a baby bump in the mix and it’s next to impossible. Until I found this one from Versona priced under $50! The stretchy fabric makes this dress maternity friendly and will fit my growing bump. I also love the the cut out detail that isn’t too revealing:) I paired it with these OTK boots I purchased last season. If you need something with a little more coverage, pair it tights and a pair of pumps! I have had my eyes on these are they are currently 40% off!

Fall Layers

Hello Ladies!

In classic Midwest fashion, fall has come and gone and the cold fronts are in full force! Seriously why does Fall have to be so short?? This past weekend we got a taste of the cooler weather (of course just in time for all the Halloween festivities! ugh!)Ā It was so cold I busted out my Uggs! My boyfriend was less than thrilled haha he calls them “ugglies” but warmth over style right??? Well, most of the time šŸ™‚ Anyways, I wanted to share this fall layered look with you all!

IĀ  gave into the cold weather and finally unpacked all my winter clothes that were in storage and moved all my cozy knits into my closet including this caramel sweater I recently picked up (under $40!). It is so warm and soft, and love the neutral color that goes with just about anything! I purchasedĀ a Medium (for sizing reference) so that I could wear it with leggings (#priorities lol). I paired it with this scarf (under $20!) and this messenger bag (currently on sale for 70% off! Under $20!). I have been living in these mules and probably will until snow hits the ground! Fingers crossed that won’t be too soon.

I love dressing up plain sweaters and layering them with scarfs- aaaand they double as a throw if you get cold lol! H&M has so many good one’s to pick from. I also purchased this scarf and have this one from last season (if you need a large warm one to wear with a winter coat I highly recommend- its huge!).

Looks for Less: Amazing Designer Dupes

Happy Sunday Ladies!

Hope everyone had a fun & relaxing weekend. Today we are sharing amazing dupes to help you get the designer look for less! Whether your on a budget, or can’t be trusted with nice things (guilty as charged! LOL) these bags will help you achieve the designer look for wayyyyy less. I seriously cannot believe how good some of these are! I recently purchased this Gucci dupe and love being able to bring it out on the town without having to worry about it getting dirty or left behind. I will warn that the sizing is a little different (the dupe runs bigger) and materials are not genuine leather however, it gets the job done:)

Here are some of my other favorite designer look-alike’s! All dupes listed are under $100. Links are below to shop!
