Style Inspo: Fringe + Gigi Hadid

Fringe has been super popular this year, and I'm totally on the bandwagon!  Even better?  Fringe on sweaters (even though this winter has been pretty mild so far)!

Gigi Hadid has easily become one of my favorite fashion inspirations!  Anyone who can (and does) rock fringe is a friend of mine.  She makes anything she wears look so effortlessly cool.

Since I unfortunately do not have her bank account, I re-created this particular favorite of mine, with all pieces that were under a hundred dollars (I admit to being a shopaholic, but I'm one on a tight budget).  It's such a simple look to throw together: sweater, jeans and boots; but the pieces themselves add interest: fringe on the sweater, ripped jeans, and a sleek over the knee boot.  In other words: perfection; you could wear this look anywhere.

This fringe sweater from Aerie is by far my favorite sweater in my wardrobe (I have both colors it comes in, and wish it came in more hues...burgundy perhaps, I'd fill my closet).

I love the fringe sweater because it's super easy to throw on and still look cool and put together at the same time (which is great for all my fellow lazy girls out there).  I can wear this to work, out with the friends, or just running errands (or all three in one day without having to change multiple times!).

Christmas Sparkle

Merry Christmas guys!!  

This year my family's having a super quiet celebration this year since my dad woke up sick, but that doesn't mean that I'm not going to dress up (dressing up is my favorite)!  ...a girl's always gotta add a little sparkle to the room, right?

This gold skirt is actually my dress for New Years Eve!  I couldn't wait til next week to wear it (how can you say no to sparkle?).  I toned it down a bit and made it more Christmas casual by throwing on a comfy cozy flannel...and then added the bow for fun.

A Ballerina Christmas Eve

Merry Christmas Eve guys!! 

I have to say, Christmas Eve is actually more exciting for me than Christmas Day, always has been for me. My sister and I are really close to my three cousins and Christmas Eve is the day we've always celebrated together. We have a huge dinner and then play some silly games. Christmas Day is much quieter and relaxing, and the night before is rowdy and filled with lots of laughs (mostly at each other, haha). 

This year, I needed an outfit that did double duty since I'm working all day before heading to my aunt's house for our usual holiday celebrations. 

How gorgeous is this Perry Street necklace that I got in my Rocksbox this month?!

Christmas Eve Eve

Merry Christmas Eve Eve guys!

I know I've been M.I.A. for a while now, but juggling two jobs now is taking up all of my time, and has left extremely little time for blogging (although I've been faithfully Insta-blogging!).  But, I just had to share today's OOTD; it's so simple and comfy, I was in love as soon as I put it on!

I was only at one job today, and had a TON of running around to do afterwards, so this outfit totally fit the bill.  It was work appropriate, comfortable, and always a must: stylish.

Nobody loves accessories on the cheap more than me!  These awesome shades that look just like Dior?  Only $2 (plus $1 shipping) from the Wish app (a must download if you love stocking up on accessories without breaking the bank!).  You can't beat $3 sunnies!!  I ordered a pair for my mom and then ordered another for myself in a different color, #sorrynotsorry.

And this golden beauty I'm wearing around my neck?  Part of the two for $10 deal at Charlotte Russe; how could you go wrong?!  It's times like this that I stock up on accessories, because you never know when you'll need a good statement necklace (hint, hint, they also make an awesome last minute prezzie!).
