What to Wear: Holiday Dinner Party

christmas-dinner

We’re having a few friends over for dinner tomorrow night and of course I have “nothing to wear.”  I want something chic and comfortable that allows me to cook, entertain and chase after a wild toddler.  And, as is usual, it’s the end of the month and most of our budget has gone to holiday shopping so it has to also be affordable.  Enter the mall down the street from me with an H&M, Macy’s, JC Penny, Kohl’s and Forever 21.  Not sure if I’ll get a chance to go, but if I do, here’s I have my eye on to purchase for the occasion.  Which one do you like the best?

one // skirt: h&m // shirt: h&m // shoes: joan & david

two // sweater: lc lauren conrad // skirt: joe fresh // shoes: dv dolce vita

three // sweater: h&m // jeans: levi’s // necklace: forever21 // shoes: marc fisher

four // top: h&m // pants: joe fresh // shoes: report signature

Dark & Stormy

dark-and-stormy

It’s cold and snowy here in NYC.  Something about this weather inspires me to go monochromatic in a big way and hide out in a big gray sweater.  I love pairing gray with black for a chic dark-and-stormy look.  Here’s three ways to do it and the perfect cold-weather toppers.

@home // Pants: Hudson / Sweater: Zara / Slippers: Ugg // @the mall // Sweater: Zara / Jeans: James / Booties: H by Hudson // @dinner // Jeans: Hudson / Sweater: Zara / Booties:: Zara // on top // Jacket: Mango / Hat: BCBGeneration / Bag: Rebecca Minkoff
