STYLE GURU STYLE: Sugar Plum Style

It’s my favorite time of the year—the holidays! The next month will be filled with traditions from baking holiday cookies with my mom to decorating the house with my dad, but the tradition I am most excited for is seeing the Nutcracker Ballet with my family at our local theater. I danced ballet for about 10 years so I have a personal connection to the Nutcracker. Plus, it puts me in the perfect holiday mood!

Of course when I am going to see the Nutcracker, I have to look the part. This year I decided put together a ballet-inspired outfit. One of the most distinguishable parts of a ballerina is her giant tulle tutu. I paired this ballet pink one with a basic black sweater that I tucked into the skirt. Unfortunately, it would seem rather odd to wear my old ballet slippers to the Nutcracker when I am only an audience member and not a dancer, so instead I wore a pair of my classic suede pumps. Additionally, every ballerina has to have a little sparkle in her costume so I added my own sparkle by wearing a jeweled statement necklace and earrings to match. Finally, I grabbed my kate spade new york wallet to use as a clutch since it is large enough to hold my phone, keys and tickets for the ballet.

As for my makeup, I wanted to keep my face young and sweet. I started with some light foundation and added blush for youth. I also wanted to create a bit of a frosty look since it is the time of the year for frost and snow, so I went a little heavier on the highlight than I naturally would. I finished my look with classic winged eyeliner and a few coats of mascara for long lashes.

Happy holidays, Fashionistas and Fashionistos!
