What to Wear

The season of giving has begun! School is winding down; you’re packing up your suitcase and getting ready to go home to spend time with your family and childhood friends. It’s the time to be cheerful and eat amazing home cooked meals, of course. Now remember, some of these people may not have seen you since you were rocking denim skirts and high top Converse, so take advantage of this time to show off your amazing style! This Fashionista really hit home with her holiday ensemble.

The Fashionista’s choice of the black, lace detailed jump suit couldn’t have been more appropriate for the season. While it’s not as dressy as a dress and not as casual as jeans and a sweater, this jumpsuit will rock any occasion, as it is easy to dress up or down. A very similar choice to this Fashionista’s is this In Too Deep Jumpsuit found on NASTY GAL. Paired perfectly with the jumpsuit are the Fashionista’s luxurious, nude patent leather open-toe sandals. Here in Tampa, sandals are a staple all year long so it’s important to have some fun with them! Try these Marlenee pumps from Steve Madden to spice up your closet this holiday season. It’s never wrong to spoil yourself a little, right? You deserve it!

Gold is a key color in the holiday trends. Store windows are decked in gold garland and sparkles galore! But keep it simple and chic to refrain from looking like your Christmas tree. The Fashionista’s decision to keep it low key and go with the gold chain bracelet and black, studded leather bracelet are the perfect finishing touches to her masterpiece ensemble. Go for this leather and chain bracelet from ZARA to combine the two pieces into one! Now, whether you are holiday shopping or party hopping, a small shoulder bag is a necessity. You don’t want to be lugging a big tote through the crowded malls or be stopped from dancing to your favorite holiday tune by a big shoulder bag. Plus, how adorable is this Fashionista’s cheetah print satchel? Not only does it add a pop of print to her outfit, she is going to have no problem dancing the night away to “Santa Baby.” You can find one similar here at Michael Kors.

One Simple Change: Being cold might not be the first thing us Florida girls think of when picking out our outfits but we should keep in mind that Mother Nature doesn’t always cooperate with us. Bring along this leather quilted moto Jacket from EXPRESS to keep it safe and trendy. Happy Holidays Fashionistas/os!
