Black and White Holiday Style

Nov 22, 2016

Anyone else ready to close up their computer for a couple days? Okay, I guess I can’t really do that with all the impending sales. Speaking of sales – I have a question for you all. Last year I did my 50 Under $50 Gift Guide on Black Friday, previously I posted it on Cyber Monday. I’m pretty sure it got more love on Cyber Monday BUT I wanted to see what you all prefer. The 50 Under $50 is still coming but I’d love to hear what day you all want to get your online shopping on.

Okay on to the outfit. I’ve been waxing poetic for months now about my move towards dressing in primarily black and white. I can’t quite shake my love of navy and neutrals but for work and nights out, black and white are the easiest, and often for me, the chicest options.

I’ve had these black faux leather leggings for a while now and have been wanting to try out the bell sleeve trend. I snagged this super simple but crazy versatile option at ASOS. It’s long enough to pair with skinny jeans and leather leggings, fitted enough to be tucked into a pencil skirt and could easily go more casual with jeans (i’m thinking a ripped pair and heels). Speaking of heels, this lace up version is perfect for the holidays. They go with anything and aren’t too high so you can wear them for a while without your feet dying. Plus they’re 40% off today (woo woo!).

Okay we’re running off for another day of madness with the kids (it’s not a vacation, it’s a trip)… Before I go, don’t forget to enter the seriously big giveaway for $1000!!!! Oh yeah and let me know in the comments about the gift guide preference. Last but not least, happy travels to anyone hitting the road or skies!
