From Fam to Glam – holiday fashion for every holiday occasion

This is a Fashionista Event Opportunity, and is hosted by Still Blonde after all these YEARS and Modly Chic.

Finding the perfect outfit for every holiday event or occasion can add another layer of stress to your  holiday preparations and planning. As a self proclaimed fashionista, I want to look my best all the time whether I am trimming the tree during a casual family get together or sipping champagne at a holiday party. I am so excited to share my holiday fashion find with you! This comfortable and stunning outfit from Monroe and Main can go from an activity with the FAMily to any GLAMourous event this holiday season.

Holiday Fashion needs to be able to take you from Fam to Glam. These gold jeans can do just that.

Holiday Fashion = Gold Jeans!

What if I told you you could rock holiday fashion at almost any event this year wearing comfortable jeans? I am serious! Jeans! But not just any pair of jeans, oh no. GOLD JEANS! I have to admit I was a little hesitant to get gold jeans. I have seen them on other fashionistas and loved the look but never thought I could pull it off. Well guess what I did and they look fabulous and you can do gold jeans too!

Holiday Fashion from Monroe and Main Love these gold jeans

These glamorous gold jeans are very comfortable and the relaxed fit is flattering for curvier figures. They can be worn with some sparkly black heels for a glamorous evening or black boots for a day of busy family activities. Shorter gals ( I consider myself in that category) will definitely want to add some height with their heels as these jeans wear long. It is nice to find a longer fitting pant that looks great with a heel.

Holiday Fashions for every occasion from Monroe and Main

I decided to wear the gold jeans with the crossover rib sweater in black. This cut of this sweater is so beautiful on every body type. The empire waist cut shows off all the right curves in all the right places. It accentuates your assets while slimming through the waist and flowing over the hips. I love this sweater. I love the flowing sleeves that are gathered at the cuffs. So pretty and the perfect piece to pair with bolder bottoms to complete your holiday fashion.

How to rock gold jeans! We are sharing 5 tips for wearing one of the hottest trends right now:gold jeans. You don't have to be afraid. Gold jeans are not just for the fashion bold. They are for everyone.

5 Tips for Wearing Gold Jeans

  1. Pay attention to fit – Go for loose relaxed fit to keep them wearable during the day. A skin tight fit will be harder to pull off for most of us and is not very daytime friendly. The Nikki Gold Jeans from Monroe and Main are a great fit for any size or shape.
  2. Don’t be afraid of color when wearing gold jeans. Think of them as neutral if it helps. Gold jeans look great with green, bright blue, navy, and of course black. You can even wear them with mauve, army green, or ivory.
  3. Dress ’em down  – You can wear gold jeans just like your favorite pair of blue denim jeans. You can adopt a rock star attitude for the day and pair them with a fitted t-shirt and a leather jacket.
  4. Do wear gold toned jewelry – I have never been a fan of mixing metals even though I have seen it done well. I am just not up for that type of fashion challenge and I think it is too easy to get it wrong when wearing gold jeans.
  5. Dress them up – Add a statement necklace, chunky bracelets, and sparkling pumps for glamorous evening wear. Maybe a some animal print pumps or a clutch.

I love the versatility of metallic jeans. Gold jeans look great with black, blue, green, and navy. They can be dressed up or down. I just can’t rave enough about how happy am I am with this look from Monroe and Main.

Big Savings on Winter Clothes

Sierra Trading Post Winter Gear with limited time free shipping, plus join our $250 giveaway

It’s that time again to update all our winter clothes and we all know it’s not cheap. We don’t usually buy winter clothes for everyone but this year it seems that our old ones just won’t work anymore

It’s that time again to update all our winter clothes. We don’t usually buy winter clothes for everyone every year because we all know winter clothes are not cheap but this year it seems that our old ones just won’t work anymore. One needs a new coat; another need new winter boots and so on and so forth. Good thing because I know where to shop for our whole family without burning a hole in our budget.

For me the best place to shop for winter gear is online and Sierra Trading Post is on top of my list. Sierra Trading Post has been around for 30 years and did you know that 98% of all their orders ship within one business day? Awesome right! It’s perfect especially if you need your winter clothes asap.Continue reading

Make these days feel warmer with Sol Alpaca Scarves

Disclosure: I received the beautiful Sol Alpaca Scarf in this review and additional compensation from Sol Alpaca as part of the Mom It Forward Network Feel Warmer with Sol Alpaca Campaign. #feelwarmer #SolAlpaca

I do not fully embrace many fashion accessory or trends. Trust me I am not buying leg warmers. I don’t wear hats. I won’t be getting any feather earrings or adding feather to my hair. I do love a great completer piece and during the fall season I love scarves and wraps. For me, I like to feel cozy and warm and a good scarf can make me feel that way. I like both infinity scarves and regular scarves. I love to try new ways to wear them. I also like to buy them and have quite a few. So when I was given the chance to review one of the beautiful Sol Alpaca Scarves I jumped at the opportunity. So let me tell you a little bit about Sol Alpaca Scarves and then I will show you some great ways to wear them.Continue reading

Fall Fashion Trends – The spotlight is on aubergine!

This is a Fashionista Event Opportunity, and is hosted by Still Blonde after all these YEARS and Modly Chic.

Are you ready for fall fashion? Ready or not fall is fast approaching and this fall bold colors are going to be one of the hottest trends. I have to admit I am a stay safe with neutrals and muted shades kinda girl but I just love love love one of the hot colors this fall – aubergine – and I really want to include it in my fall wardrobe. So to get comfortable and confident with color I am adding it to my wardrobe a splash at a time.

Fall Fashion Trends – The spotlight is on aubergine!

Aubergine is a easy color to work into your wardrobe for us gals who like the neutrals especially gray. To show you how I am going to update my fall wardrobe with aubergine I did a little shopping at Monroe and Main. I picked out and ordered this fabulous Street Chic Sweater because comfortable chunky sweaters will also be trendy this fall. Fashion Tip: Don’t feel like you need to go out and buy a whole new wardrobe every season. You can add one or two trendy pieces and reuse them in different outfits to create several different looks without breaking the bank. So yes, the sweater is mostly grey however it has several splashes of aubergine. Remember, I am color shy and need to take baby steps.

First look: Comfy Casual

monroe and main casual outfit with splashes of aubergine

This look is inspired by the cooler temperatures of fall and getting cozy and comfortable. It is totally casual and totally comfortable while giving me the boost of confidence from my favorite fall color aubergine. To get this look I put the sweater on over a pair of grey leggings and an aubergine t-shirt, added some ballet flats, and some chunky earrings. Remember ladies- leggings are not pants! So make sure you keep your sweater buttoned when wearing it over your leggings.

Second look – Date night or girl’s night out

My new sweater also goes nicely with jeans and boots and lord knows we love our boots, right? So same Street Chic sweater, same -t shirt now add some jeans and your favorite boots. That’s it so easy to totally switch up your look. With this option you can wear the sweater open or closed since you have jeans on and not leggings.  Perfect for day into evening because you can button up when it starts to get chilly. Wearing the sweater open adds more of the great aubergine color to the look and I think it is just the right amount of color for me. I love this outfit and feel great in it. I think aubergine is a great color for fall.

What to Wear Under a Sheer Garment?

What to Wear Under a Sheer Garment?

What to Wear Under a Sheer Garment?

Have you ever wondered what to wear under a sheer garment? I think you have two choices something that is the same color or something neutral. Then the question becomes how much coverage do you want? I am a little old fashion in the fact that if it isn’t the beach, do not dress like it is. I went on the hunt for an under garment that would actually resolve my issue.Continue reading

Project Gravitas Review

Project Gravitas Review

Project Gravitas

It is date night or maybe it is attack that meeting with a vengeance. Are you a superhero? What if I told you I have a secret uniform to save small children and cook them dinner, balance the boardroom, look great and feel great and entice my husband into the bedroom. It isn’t a superhero cape? It may be a confidence cape in white or it may be the most incredible skirt I have ever worn.Continue reading
