For the longest time I felt like I was too old and too curvy to wear a tulle skirt, unyet, I was completely drawn to them whenever I would see them.  Such a beautiful and versatile piece…as long as you are young and thin, right?   Weeeellllllll, maybe not.  For me, it was all about finding the right skirt.  My checklist I had for such a skirt was that it needed to not be too poofy (check), have a longer length (check), have an elastic waistband (check), and be in a darker basic colour (and check).  When I spotted this beauty, I knew it had to be mine.

Styled my way with pretty neutral colours and a pop of sparkle, I now think a tulle skirt can absolutely be an age appropriate item.  And the too curvy thing?  I’m so over that too!

I’m sucker for comfort.  If I’m going to be spending an evening out, I refuse to be uncomfortable.  That said, this would be another look I’ve styled up using all my favourite components for my go to uniform.  {See my first uniform look here.}  While shopping at one of my local shopping haunts, Barefoot Contessa, I spotted this fabulous flowy tunic and floral leggings.  Such a simple way to pull a look together for a night out with the girls or a date night with the Hubs.  I simply added one of my many fitted minis and accessorized with some sparkle.  Red lips can always kick your look up a notch too.  Getting ready for a fun evening with people you love shouldn’t be torture, so ladies, keep it simple.

New Years Eve used to be about me shopping for a new fabulous outfit, getting all dressed up, and breaking in a new pair of heels until the wee hours of the New Year.  Soooo, life has changed a little.  This year I’m shopping my own wardrobe, finding something cute but comfortable, and I’ll be sipping champagne with my loves until…well, until we get tired and decide it’s time to go to bed.  {You can always celebrate Eastern time.}

We have no idea what exactly we’ll be doing tonight, but we know it will be low key and as a family.  This look I styled with items from my wardrobe.  I  kept comfort the priority and then added touches of shine and glamour.  Tonight’s look might be an even more casual approach, but I’m ok with that; as long as there is bubbly.

Happy New Year!

This time of year is definitely all about socializing.  It’s impossible to have a new outfit for every occasion, however getting creative with layers and textures can transform your wardrobe to something new.  This outfit gave me that perfect balance of cozy but polished.  I layered two dresses to achieve my desired look.  I was warm enough to be outside taking pictures but not too warm when we were inside sipping London Fogs.  I feel like this one will be making a repeat showing over the holidays.

I will have a last minute Christmas gift post coming this weekend! Be sure to check back for some fun ideas.
