JACKET, GRAPHIC TEE, STUDDED JEANS, SLINGBACK HEELS, EARRINGS: (c/o) River Island

So, IRL I tend to be reserved. But when it comes to dressing, I’m the complete opposite. I’m risky. Bold. Confident. I know, seems counterintuitive especially being a blogger – but it’s true!

I’m a homebody. I love snuggling up with my boyfriend while watching movies
on a Saturday night. I love cooking with him. I love reading (when I can find the time). Listening to geeky podcasts. Writing. Taking steamy baths and drinking wine. Decorating my apartment. I love it all… my “me time” at home is always super important to me!

But I also realize it’s the holidays, and its seemingly never-ending stream of parties is impossible to ignore. So while getting ready for a cocktail party yesterday (when all I really wanted to do was Netflix and chill), I figured this weekend would be the perfect time to share another holiday-ready look. One that’s not so basic… and boring! One that speaks to my personality so well.

Because when you look good, you feel good. When you feel good, you have fun. When you have fun, you do not want to Netflix and chill anymore… see where I’m going with this?

My look is from River Island, an affordable option for trendy clothing. If you shop this look today, you’ll receive 25% off all orders which includes womenswear, menswear and kids in the US! But this offer ends Nov. 27 so take advantage of it while you can!

My fringe jacket is cropped and lightweight – perfect for Florida winters. My graphic tee says “Amour” on it with pearls and has red lining on each side (a super cute detail!) My studded jeans fit me SO well – for reference, I’m wearing a size 4 “petite extra short” (yes, I’m small). And my slingback heels (run big) will be on major repeat for like the next three months because they are equal parts cute and comfy.

As always, leave comments if you have any questions and I’ll do my best to get back to you in a timely manner! Ciao, ciao!

Xo, Stephanie
