How To Style an Ugly Christmas Sweater

Its begining to look a lot like christmas......
I've had the idea probably since last year that to do a post styling ugly christmas sweaters so here it is.
Love how culturally we've embraced the trend with more and more ugly christmas sweater parties every year ( see more U.C.S here). Its one of those things you hate to love, speaking of hate and love, I used to really despise christmas music and now when I hear it, it makes me feel all warm and fuzzy. Please tell me I'm not the only one, it must be a sign that Im getting old😬


So I decided rather than keeping my look casual as one would expect, that I dress it up. I paired the Sweater from Target in an XL with my FTF X DIA&Co box  skirt ( Click here for 50% off your first box). I love this full Skirt its exactly what I wanted and was looking for the length the fabric and shape πŸ‘ŒπŸΎπŸ‘ŒπŸΎ make sure to ask for it when you request your DIA&Co box. Finally to finish off the look I choose my furry Red sandals (cause I didnt have these red Pumps) and Voila the look is finish.

Tip: Got a bit of a tummy pair a cropped sweater with High waist pieces like a midi skirt or mom Jeans for a flattering fit.

Be sure to come back Sunday for my Gift guide for new moms that I've been talking all about and THANKS for all the πŸ‘€  and πŸ‘†πŸΎon my Top Last Minute Mens Gift Guide. As always I really appreciate your feedback in the comments. I want to know are you still shopping for gifts? Is there anyone in particular that you find hard shopping for? Let me know and ill be sure to incorporate it in an upcoming post.


BTW Target is offering 25% off Outfits for everyone and an additional $10 off $50 or $25 off $100 so, if uve been eyeing some pieces like almost everything from the WhoWhatWear collection (like this Dress) id take advantage of this deal.

I paired the look with my new Asos Aviators that Ive been talking about all over Vlogmas and Snapchat but Im not sure if I should have rocked it with this look what do you guys think Hot or Hmm.

The "Best" Last Minute Gifts For Him

Raise your hand if you're guilty of buying your him's (dad, brother, in law, & hubby) gift last? 
Is it just me or do we tend to buy Him Gifts last, that could explains why a lot of him's find sweaters, socks, ties, and hats under the tree. So for all those procrastinators out there I thought I'd share last minute gift ideas early enough, so that this year the him's in your life will not have to receive the aforementioned deplorable's. Bookmark this page and come back to it when you're ready πŸ˜‰

In case your wondering for the main Hims in my life these are the current Items on the list Versace Eros (requested) or a monthly scent subscription ( currently debating), These in shower speakers (perfect for those who ❤️ music in shower), possibly some comfy Plush slippers (goes upto sz 18) to match last year's plush robe that I'm currently wearing (shhh dont tell), Madden 17(requested), The newest Diary of the wimpy Kid book Double Down(requested), Pokemon Cards(requested).

However if you will be getting any of the aforementioned deplorable's consider upping the quality, go luxe buy the knit pieces in luxe materials like Cashmere (like this Beanie). Need more inspo check out the Top Gifts under $30 post as well as the Menswear Monday series Here.

 Come back Wednesday for a Gift guide for new Moms and Im thinking a Gift guide for teens and many of know I interact with teens on a daily basis as part of my profession. Left me know if you guys would be interested and I'd be happy to survey them for the best ideas.

Who is the hardest person to shop for in your family, is it a him and how do you get around it?

21 Holiday Party Style Must Haves + A Metallic Midi Pleated Skirt Outfit

The Aftermath....
 A moment of silence for our bank accounts after Cyber weekend hopefully you took advantage of my Cyber Monday and Black Friday picks. I will be uploading a Cyber Monday haul shortly on Youtube so Subscribe Here to be updated. However that is not the subject of today's post, I decided to tackle two micro trends that are perfect for this time of year. The metallic pleated Midi skirt and the detailed sleeve trend. Additionally I thought I'd share more Holiday party picks especially since Asos is offering 30% off.

I've seen quite a bit of emphasis placed on the sleeve from super voluminous, to ruffled ,  tasseled, to even exaggerated lengths and much more. I was intrigued so I thought I'd give the trend a try, lets just say this particular style wasn't the best choice.


Tip: if you have large arms stay away from fit and flare styled sleeves they bring unflattering attention to your arms. Rather go for styles with all over volume or embellished sleeves.

I am sure you guys remember me talking about how obsessed I was with Kela Walkers outfit Here and how many pleated metallic Midis I ordered ( I shared them on Snapchat). This satin one comes from Asos (I ordered a size 18 if in between sizes I recommend sizing down) and I thought it would be fun to pair it with another shade of brown.  I paired it with a fit and flare sleeved ribbed Top (runs large got in a 14) and went with a faux fur clutch ( keeping the look mostly nude) and finally  broke things up with a platformed mustard satin Pump.


Alrighty I am still working on a lot more Holiday content, gifts for him and her should be up this weekend plus Gifts for new moms will follow. As always I'd love your feedback on what topics you guys would love me to cover this holiday season beauty, fashion, teens, etc. Also I'd love to know who you are are shopping for inorder to make the best product roundups and Gift guides.

What's your verdict on both trends haute or hmmm have you tried any of them?
