Do Something Different for the Holiday
All Photography – Carlos Barron Photography
If you follow me, by now you most definitely know I like to encourage people to do “something different” and step outside of their comfort zone. I hate when people feel like they can’t step out of the box because they “can’t pull” something off. I think you can pull off anything that makes you feel good as long as you’re confident (well almost anything, there are times I have to tell myself to put away the hooker shoes, or dress made entirely of rainbow sequins – it’s the JewTalian in me really that is to blame my love for the gaudy…).
While I LOVE me a sparkly dress or mini skirt (and believe me I’ll be wearing some this holiday season) I wanted to write a little post on another look I styled for the holiday season that brings out a little something different into your wardrobe.
For this look – I took a statement blazer, with over sized sleeve detailing, and paired it with a simple fitted jean. To take this look from Happy Hour to holiday, I added some extra fun holiday jewels from Kendra Scott’s winter line. I topped (or bottomed) out the look with these hand-strassed Christian Louboutin shoes I wore for my wedding (SEE hubs, I told you I’d wear them again). Whether you go with a simpler heel or not, the overall look screams holiday, while still being something slightly different from the usual selection of sequined dresses (again – I still love sequin dresses… :P).
If you’re looking for something new to try this season, here are a couple of alternates I like that accomplish the same look:
