Horse of A Different Color

after all of the red, gold, sequins and glitter from the past month i am craving something different.  this vibrant pink piko from Sugar Love Boutique is such a breath of fresh air!  and because the weatherman thinks it is still summertime here in eastern nc, it is just the right weight with a thin jacket.  i love a utility jacket.  they pair so well with everything - dressy or casual - and the olive green shade always adds a nice layer of color.  

ps - love these python pumps as much as i do?  right now they are on major sale with an extra 50% sale ends today!!  

And speaking of Great End of Year Sales,  Shopbop is offering an additional 25% off items already on sale!   there are some seriously amazing deals in this sale lineup.  and the sale ENDS January 1st so hurry over!

Holiday Style Part Three

and we're going to party like it's 1999....  

not really.  i was a pre-teen in '99 and my only parties involved secrets & truth-or-dare.  but, you get the idea.  this black and gold bandage dress was made to party.  and so thanks to Fab Finds Boutique, my NYE prep work is done.  

i have always loved black and gold for NYE.  so classic.  and this year i'm going to let trusty 'ole leopard join in on the fun.  since this is such a chic and simple look, i kept my jewels dainty and simple as well.  just add a fur coat (if the weather will cooperate ever....) and you are ready to roll!

here's to hoping you have someone to smooch at midnight!

Holiday Frills

the sequins are out of the closet.  it's O-ficially the holiday season.

i tried my best to find some similar tops to this one from last year.  it's actually a peplum top that i have tucked in, so keep your mind open when shopping!  if you aren't scared of sleeveless options, this sequin tank is a little bit of Heaven.  

and what better to pair with sequins than a flirty, feminine & custom-made circle skirt!   Frill Clothing is the perfect shop for all of your Holiday ensems.  created originally for bridesmaids and sororities, these skirts can be individually ordered are are available in any color of your dreams.  i think they add a classic feel & a bit of whimsy to your looks.  and the quality is amazing!  remember my Thanksgiving #ootd i posted on Instagram?  yep, also a Frill skirt! 

Nude pumps and my classic Daniel Wellington Watch kept this Holiday look classic.  are you still shopping for a special gift for that special person?  Daniel Wellington Watches are such an amazing investment.  watches will always be a perfect Christmas gift.  and why not give a watch that will compliment every outfit and outlast the trends. 

make sure to use code holiday_modaandthemar for 15% off your purchase from Daniel Wellington
