I love a good ugly Christmas sweater. I just can’t help but smile! My family is even wearing them on actual Christmas day! It’ll make for some pretty awesome family photos, that’s for sure. It’s fun to hunt the Goodwill for a great unique sweater but they get pretty picked over this time of year. Luckily, the ugly Christmas sweater theme is really popular so sweaters are available at regular retail locations. Here are some of my favorite picks from my search this year.
I love visiting my family in Washington because it allows me to wear fall fashion the way it’s supposed to be worn… in layers! A fun cabled sweater works with everything from skirts to jeans and adds a nice texture to your look. This one even has a subtle hint of sparkle woven into it! The pants are faux suede and feel like you’re wearing pajamas and are so super comfy I wish I could have them in every color! I added some pop to the otherwise beige color scheme with a burgundy coat and boots. You guys know I love my color so I wouldn’t have it any other way!
It’s officially the first day of fall!! Yes!! While I wait for it to cool down to full on fall weather, I’ll be slowly transitioning in my cold weather wardrobe. To do that, I’ll be wearing things like a sweater and shorts (today!), knee high boots and a tank, etc. You’ll see! I’m just happy it’s FALL!!!
Welcome to my first weekly Monday Must-Have Lust List! Every Monday, I’ll share with you five of the things I’m currently obsessing over. It can be anything from shoes (duh!), movies, books, beauty products, trends, places… you name it! Call it my weekly inspiration board! Happy lusting!
1) THE RELEASE OF MAN REPELLER: SEEKING LOVE, FINDING OVERALLS
As a regular reader of Leandra Medine’s blog, I’m really looking forward to her debut book! She has a sharp engaging writing style that’s sure to make you laugh, cringe, and totally relate all at the same time. It’s like Chelsea Handler meets Fashion Police meets Rachel Zoe. If you’re a hopeless fashion addict with an unabashed love for a little sarcasm, I believe you will not be disappointed.
Releases September 10, 2013. Pick up your copy here!
2) 3.1 PHILLIP LIM FOR TARGET LAUNCH
OMG! All this talk about 3.1 Phillip Lim’s collaboration for Target has got my mind on fire! The designer’s obvious skill can now be enjoyed for a fraction of the brand’s regular prices. Have you seen all those beautiful handbags?! Swoon! How about the fun graphic tops?! So on trend! The evening dresses?! Perfection! You can count on me being front and center at this Sunday’s release!
Lauches September 15, 2013. Check out the preview here!
3) NEW YORK FASHION WEEK STREET STYLE
Unless you’ve been living under a rock, you know New York Fashion Week is underway. One of my favorite things about the fashion weeks all around the world is checking out the amazing street style. It’s fun to see how real women wear the trends. The photos are infinitely inspiring, often outlandish, devilishly daring, and always stylish! Don’t worry… it won’t be long until you see my photo among these! 😉
4) TOPSHOP ‘AWESOME’ POLKA DOT SWEATSHIRT
I probably need to move somewhere that sweaters, pants, and jackets are a more regular occurrence because I tend to be supremely drawn to them. When I saw this sweater, it was immediately added to my shopping cart and my mind began creating outfits with this, well, awesome sweater! Officially obsessed. Available Here!
5) CHANEL LES BEIGES HEALTHY GLOW SHEER COLOUR SPF15
The luxury brand is at it again creating more irresistibly tempting beauty products. This sheer glow powder sounds like it will be perfect for those of us living in more humid climates. At least for me, when humidity strikes, there’s no point in wearing any foundation because it’ll just melt off anyway! A nice powder like this with just a hint of color might be just the ticket! I’m looking forward to picking up this product soon!
