Favorite Wears: How to Style a Jumpsuit

Loft Lace Jumpsuit wearing for a party

I wanted to switch up my holiday party wear and do something different than a dress or skirt - or sequins for that matter. That didn't leave a whole lot of options for my work cocktail party that was mostly fancy.  So... thanks to all the major sales running rampant, I snagged this jumpsuit with lace detail for 50% off and it was the perfect dress alternative.

I was antsy to wear my new leopard coat (that I've been wanting for YEARS, also snagged at a heck of a deal with all these sales...only $80 & you can take 20% off with code DECEMBER20 now through 12/20 here!), and thought an all black one-piece was the perfect backdrop to add that pop too. It's warm, too, so that's a bonus.  This outfit was fun and comfortable to wear - and while peeing wasn't the quickest, the jumpsuit was surprisingly easy to get on and off!

What are you donning to this seasons holiday parties/new year's eve night out?  Any other ideas besides dresses/skirts?

Favorite Wears: All Black

Sometimes when I'm in a super big hurry and don't have any outfits pre-pulled and styled, I grab for pieces all the same color and just mix up the texture, black is the easiest!  This makes an outfit look super chic, but it's really quick and easy. Plus, it's easy to add a couple pops in complimentary hues.  For this outfit, I wanted to layer on my faux-fur snood with coordinating earrings and then add a bright lip.  It took me 15 minutes to get ready, but I felt very pulled together in this outfit.

And on another note, I've shied away from big earrings for awhile now (just breaking out the statement earring occasionally) for fear of the heavier varieties will stretch out my earlobe or sometimes, they're just uncomfortable. Anyways, after taking these Nickel & Suede leather tear-drop earrings for a ride, I'm BACK! You guys, it's like wearing nothing at all, but the beautiful leather and color options they have brighten up your face and add so much interest. I love them and I'm hooked...

So, do you have any tricks of your own for pulling together a cute outfit super quick?
