"I love to see a young girl go out and grab the world by the lapels. Life's a bitch. You've got to go out and kick ass," - Maya Angelou
Happy Holidays #StyleUnicorns and as always welcome back to #SmartBlondes! :) What better way to start off this week's post than to add in a touch of feminism with Maya Angelou (as is our way) and start the next year off with a kick ass mindset! We're beyond excited to discuss this look that can really be rocked throughout the month of December as well as January because well it's cold, the perfect season for cuddle weather and you know Starby's is not far from two wily unicorns. ;)
Holiday femme is at it's finest with this Naughty or Nice? sweater paired with distressed boyfriend jeans (perfect for looking chic and getting your grub on, because really thats what the holidays are all about.) ;)
Lindsey: Hi pretties :) I know I've mentioned before that you should always do a tight top with looser bottoms and vice-versa, however I broke my own rule with this look! What I learned with this look is that in order to pull off a baggy sweater with baggy jeans in one outfit is that it really comes down to the shoes! I tried on different booties before I moved onto the laced up pointed toe shoes. They work because of how sleek the heel is while adding a little bit of that feminine feel to an otherwise pretty casual vibe.
Can you tell we loved this look? ;) A high-curly pony would also work well if you wanted to change it up a bit as opposed to straight hair because of it's playful and fun nature. Straight hair would have added an edgier feel where loose waves give it a feminine and very holiday spunky feel! It's perfect for holiday parties with friends, the annual Christmas Eve get-together and even to go with some girlfriends for hot cocoa! (Oh and the earrings with the glittery clutch add a touch of classy sass much like the unicorn wearing them!)
By all means #StyleUnicorns, this next look has edgy funk written all over it! Sleek hair, sunnies only and a vest to salivate over mixed with an all black ensemble says bring on the new year!
Leslie: Hello beautiful #StyleUnicorns! As we all know, I always bring a little bit of the funk and the edge to my looks (Maybe she's born with it...maybe it's good pants and great falsies!) Okay so I'm kind of in love with this vest...and by love I mean I've tried to make it work three times since it's debut from my closet just to say I wore it to the grocery store. (If you want to junk food binge while wearing it and use it as a blanket on the couch to satisfy the need to wear it again, by all means go for it! We don't judge here.) Because I'm a 5'0 unicorn and not as majestically tall (still majestic, just a fun sized) unicorn, the extra length on this faux fur vest elongates my torso and I don't look as bulky/boxy around the shoulders. (Something us shorties must always be cautious of, heels can always help that though.) ;)
Revamping your style (especially for the holiday season because well we all want to look our best ladies) doesn't mean you have to go out and completely nix everything you already own, it just means you can add some new staple pieces that'll give your wardrobe that fresh feel you're looking for. Now, you've seen this playsuit before (and quite frankly the pants and boots) before in our Rocker Vibes post, however we wanted to showcase that just by adding a couple of different accessories that an outfit can be completely made over. (So this helps your budget and your wardrobe!) Oh and also helps for your NYE festivities that could consist of many bottles for champagne showers.
We hope you all had a wonderful Christmas #StyleUnicorns and may you ring in the new year with parties, people, food, fur babies and of course the bubbly! Our Christmas consisted of grubbing with our wonderful family, moon babies (wine also made an appearance) and we played a game of Cards Against Humanity that lasted more than four hours...our mom won pretty much every round. (Which means there were a few dirty birds in the crowd.)
