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!
Outfit Details – Dress: Betsey Johnson, found at Marshall’s, similar here and here | Jacket: Topshop | Tights: J.Crew Factory | Booties: Coach (old, similar here, here, and here)
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!
xo, C

Happy Friday guys!  Hope you all had a great week!  Mine was pretty low key, mostly relaxing after a very eventful and busy two weeks of traveling and trying to catch up on some work.  When I have all sorts of things on my plate, this color combo never fails me.  Black and olive with a touch of denim transcend seasons in my book, and I took my favorite date night outfit from summer to fall just by switching out the tank for a sweater and adding some tights and booties.
