Hi everyone, welcome back! I’m really excited about today’s outfit because the entire thing cost me less than $100 (save for the necklace and earrings, which were gifts from B and my sister, respectively). I’ve always believed that anyone can slap on some high end labels, but truly stylish people can make things from any price point work for them, so I was pretty unabashedly proud when I realized how budget friendly this outfit was. My heels are a couple years old, but I found them at Target, which amazes everyone who asks me where I got them. My dress was a clearance find from LOFT, and this belt is a knock off from Amazon for only $15!Outfit Details – Dress: LOFT (sold out, but I found some similar ones at higher price points here, here, here) | Tights: J.Crew Factory | Heels: Adam Lippes for Target | Tights: J.Crew Factory | Earrings: Coach | Belt: Amazon | Necklace: Elizabeth & James | Lipstick: YSL 70 ‘Le Nu’ | Lipgloss: NARS ‘Chelsea Girls’ | Nail Polish: OPI ‘Aurora Berry-Alis’ |

Hi everyone, happy Monday! A few weeks ago, I took a poll on my Instagram asking what you all wanted to see more of this holiday season – casual or fancy outfits – and formal outfits took the win, so I started off with two velvet dresses in this post and a velvet tulle combo in this one! There will be plenty of casual outfits to come (plus this green sweater which pairs great with jeans!), but today I wanted to do a bit of a crossover between the two. If you have a formal event coming up but feel most comfortable in a moto jacket or stacked heels, this is the perfect marriage between the two. I found this gorgeous lace dress at Marshall’s, combined with TJMaxx, they are my two favorite places to find dresses – whether it’s for graduation season or the holidays! It is absolutely perfect on it’s own – I love the high neckline and lace sleeves – but to add a personal touch to it I think a black faux leather jacket and peep toe booties are the perfect way to add a little edge to an otherwise formal piece!

Thank you so much for reading, if you have any occasions coming up you want me to style an outfit for leave me a comment on this post! Have a great week!

Two Great Outfits and a Video

I have loved ever second of this fall and I’m still loving it even if the weather got much chillier, but I must admit that I am not ready to give up fancy outfits just yet. This is why I am trying my best to mix my favourite fall clothing items, so that I can look cool and not feel cold.

My best friend for doing that are the new Laura Baldini tights. They start from the most transparent till the most opaque model and they give that chicness and mystery to the most simple attire.

Ever since I was a little girl I’ve had a strong relationship with my tights and I remember one time my mom got me a set of different colour tights to match every single one of my dresses. I was super happy to go to the kindergarten the next day wearing my favourite dress and a nice pair of blue tights and while I was running through the yard of my kindergarten, I fell and injured my knee. As I was taken to the nursing room, the nurse asked me why was I crying and if it hurts a lot. My answer was everything for a 3 year old little girl: ‘No, I’m crying because my tights are ruined!’ 😂 As you can see fashion was my priority from a very little age and I have the scar on my right knee to prove that.

This is why, now, I am stocked for life with Laura Baldini tights in ever colour, density and model as they are of a great quality and don’t break that easily.

Here I have shown you two ways to match your tights both in a day and evening look and how they even made the whole outfit classier and also kept me warm. Let me know which is your favourite and don’t forget to check Laura Baldini website to see the whole collection.
