BLOUSE: Caroline Constas/PANTS: Blank NYC/SLINGBACKS: Express/BAG: (c/o) Zac Posen/EARRINGS: Oscar de la Renta

As if you haven’t heard Season’s Greetings enough.

Oh. M. Gee. I’ve spent the past couple of days in a state of pure bliss complete with one spa day, my boyfriend’s arrival to Houston and no emails.

The more I grow older, the more I realize the holidays are less about presents and more about the mental break you receive. My mom asked me, “what do you want this year for Christmas?” of which I replied, “to spend time with family and relax.” Between running this blog and maintaining “some sort” of social life, it’s been quite the year. But I’ll touch on this subject later next week when we talk about dun, dun, dun… New Year’s resolutions (which I’m actually not a big fan of but nevertheless, participate in every year.)

K, let’s talk fashion now.

Starting from the top down, I’m wearing a blouse by Caroline Constas. I not only love the beautiful marigold yellow, but the effortlessness and flowy-ness (not a word, it’s a thing) of it. I wear it and instantly smile. It’s boho cool meets causal chic. Totally my vibe.

My pants are surprisingly REALLY affordable. Like, under $100. I can’t get enough of the ruffled detail at the ankle which makes them less edgy (because, hello! #leather) and more classic. And the fact that they are faux leather means you can wear them guilt-free.  So yeah, total steal.

My earrings are Oscar de la Renta. No explanation needed. #amaze

And my bag is Zac by Zac Posen. In case you live under a rock and missed Project Runway, Zac (a red-carpet dress extraordinaire) was one of the judges. Between his sass and knowledge of the fashion industry, I fell in love with him this season. Anyways, this bag retails for $350 which isn’t bad considering it looks like a bag you would spend thousands on. Plus, the rich purple hue makes it super sophisticated.

As always, shop my look below! I hope everyone is enjoying their holiday!

Xo, Stephanie
