Holidays at Home: Dresses and Jumpsuits

Holidays at Home: Dresses and Jumpsuits

One category I barely touched on this year is special occasion pieces. It’s crazy to think that we’ve gone almost 12 months without a wedding, a girls’ trip someplace fun, a Broadway show, or a fancy dinner out.

Not that I ever needed a closet full of cocktail dresses, but now, my kids ask me why I’m “dressed up” when I put on a pair of jeans.

The last time I got even close to dolled up was my 40th Birthday party last November. Just thinking about it makes me realize how much we all need a fun night out to blow off some steam.

Hopefully, that night is coming sooner rather than later.

For now, consider wearing something glam for the holidays, whether it’s Christmas cocktails with a small group or New Year’s Eve on the couch with Netflix.

Before you buy anything new, go in your closet, all the way in the back, and pull out something you saved for a special occasion. Throw that on instead of your leggings, pour yourself a glass of champagne, and toast to the fact that we survived this miserable year.

If you need some inspiration or want to pick up something new, scroll down to see some easy ideas in all sizes that will arrive just in time to celebrate.

Holidays at Home: Dresses and Jumpsuits

 

Velour Dress 

H&M Black Velour Dress

Velour Dress, $25

Eat and drink all you want in this loose $25 velour dress.  Just slip it over your head for an instantly elevated look as comfortable as wearing your favorite nightgown. To make it EXTRA extra, where you best jewelry and a bold red lip. 

Long Wrap Dress

red Wrap Front Maxi Dress

Wrap Front Maxi Dress, $99 

I got really into long wrap dresses over the summer. They were a fantastic alternative shorts but felt infinitely more polished. See what you already have and consider wearing it around the house next week. Maybe add a gold flat or slipper. You’ll instantly feel the power of getting dressed and how it sets the mood for you and everyone in your home. 

This one from Nordstrom is available in red and black, and can be worn year round. 

Sweater Dress

 

Ann Taylor Black Sweater Dress

Sweater Dress, $149

You likely have at least one sweater dress in your wardrobe, and maybe it’s not getting the wear you thought it would when you bought it. Go put it on! It’s the definition of one-step dressing. If you want to get dressed this holiday season without overcomplicating things, the sweater dress is your best bet.

If you need one, I love this option from Ann Taylor, with the one-shoulder buttons. You can wear it now, at home, and then take it to the office with tights and boots. Available in sizes XXS – XXL.

Jumpsuit

 

Banana Republic Metallic Jumpsuit

Metallic Jumpsuit, $149 (ON SALE $75)

I adore this metallic jumpsuit from Banana Republic available in all sizes including petite and tall. It’s super flattering on, defining your waist and pulling the eye in with the faux wrap style top. Do me a favor and never ever wear it with the ankle boots shown above. Opt instead for a strappy heel if you need some extra height or a simple pair of flats. 

Sequin Dress

 

Express Sequin Mini Dress

Sequin Mini Dress, $54 

When I was in my early 20s, my friends and I threw a New Years Eve party (these days I’m lucky if I’m awake when the ball drops). For fun, my girlfriends and I bought ridiculous, cheap cocktail dresses. They were gaudy, but also kind of fabulous.

This season, Express is killing it with affordable holiday options that remind me of that night. Why not wear something you otherwise would never wear, like a sequin covered dress. 

But, I’m thinking this sequin sweatsuit is the PERFECT outfit to wear to kick 2020 to the curb. Gaudy, but also kind of fabulous 😉

Holidays at Home: Fun and Festive Pants

Holidays At Home: Fun and Festive Pants

Yesterday, we featured five chic and affordable sweaters to wear while we celebrate the holidays at home. Today, we’re talking pants, not just any old pair of pants, but fun, festive, and slightly over-the-top. 

After a year of sweatpants, leggings, and joggers, I’m ready for the opposite, like silk drawstring, velvet pull-on, and sequin-covered bottoms. 

I know many readers plan on going all-out with their looks this holiday, despite the fact (or because of the fact) that this year was the worst and our gatherings might be smaller than usual. 

I plan to do the same, but I want it to be easy. 

A great tip is to pull your family’s outfits together now, so you can avoid the last minute trip to Target for tights, shoes, etc. And don’t forget about yourself! In years past, I stopped short of my own outfit, and, of course, I ended up scrambling at the last minute. 

 

Holidays at Home: Fun and Festive Pants

Holidays At Home: Fun and Festive Pants

Prices are subject to change, so please keep that in mind, and inventory across the board is limited and selling out quickly. As always, there are plus, petite and tall sizes available in several of these options. All of the featured retailers have holiday delivery. 

Velvet Pants

Green Velvet Pants from J. Crew

Velvet, $118  (ON SALE $59) 

A pair of velvet pull-on pants may be the definition of glamorous comfort. They make pulling together a holiday look so easy, and they feel like sweatpants. Pair with a tonal sweater for an elevated monochromatic look.

Available in Regular, Petite and Tall up to a size 24, in colors dark spruce (above), navy and black. 

Satin Drawstring 

Black Satin Pants from Banana Republic

Satin, $89.50 (ON SALE $45)  

Personally, I think I am going to host Christmas Eve in these satin drawstring pants and a black sweater, then glam it up with accessories (Thursday’s post!). Like wearing pajamas but better. 

Available in XXS – XXL on sale for under $50

Plaid High Waisted Ankle Pants

Green and Blue Plaid Pants from Old Navy

Plaid, $25 

While I would NEVER wear these in public, there is something so fun about them. If you’re hosting a small gathering why not wear something way out of your comfort zone.

These plaid bottoms from Old Navy are only $25, available in all sizes including regular, petite, and tall up to a size 20

You can keep the look simple with a basic black sweater, or go all out and pick up the coordinating plaid sweater! Just ditch the ankle boots and, instead, wear a simple flat like the Birdie velvet loafers

Sequin-Covered Trousers

 

Black Sequin Pants from Express

Sequin, $54  

Express has some fun dress up pieces right now. So many I had a hard time picking just one. But these sequin covered trousers are the perfect way to send 2020 packing. They have a relaxed fit and are ankle length, so you can wear them with a flat or a heel.

I would wear these with a grey slouchy sweatshirt to balance and black heels for New Years Eve in front of the TV or, pair them with this $25 fuzzy white sweater featured in yesterday’s post. 

Available in Regular and Petite in XS – XL

Faux Leather Leggings

Faux Leather Pants from Spanx

Leather, $98 

 

Finally, these Spanx Faux Leather Leggings are a long time reader favorite. If you already have them, wear them with a basic or sequin-covered tunic, depending on your tolerance for bling. Find more styling options in our post How to Wear Faux Leather Leggings.  

Available in XS – XL here and plus size here. Buy one size up.

How to Dress Up Leggings for the Holidays

How to wear leggings for the holidays

Today we’re talking about how to dress up leggings for the holidays, so you can maintain your 2020 comfort level while looking festive and chic. Because, if ever there was a year to embrace loungewear as holiday attire, I guess this is it.

First, let’s talk about the kind of legging. Contrary to popular belief, not all leggings are created equal. For these looks, you do not want to wear the leggings you wear to work out.

Just like we keep gym sneakers separate from “dress up” sneakers, leggings follow the same rule. Gym leggings will look out of place.

My hands down, absolute favorite pair of all time are the Zella Live-In leggings. Even though they are sold as work out bottoms, I prefer to use these as my “better” pair. 

These higher-waisted leggings are thick, and pull you in and lift you up while still being comfortable. I have had several pairs for years and I am always amazed at how well the wash. They don’t fade or stretch out over time. 

Zella Live-In Leggings

Leggings, $58  

Style note: If you’re not totally comfortable wearing traditional leggings, swap these out for your Spanx Perfect Pants, you’ll feel more finished in them. Want to make these looks extra special? Wear the Spanx Faux Leather Leggings OR their new  Velvet Leggings

For the outfits below I worked with a combination of items I know you have and added in some new affordable pieces to help build out your options.

Cozy Glam

Sweater, $40  |Loafers, $95 | Hair Bow, $10 Studs, $40  

This first look is simple yet chic. I like leggings because they allow you to wear a big oversized sweater, and this one from Express is fab. It’s on sale for $40 and comes in four colors up to an XL. Above, I’m using the grey because I love the neutral combination. There is also a seasonal red that would look lovely.

Then, I used the Birdie loafers we are all loving, in black velvet. For accessories, a fun pair of CZ studs and a simple velvet bow hair tie I found on Etsy.

 

Chic by The Fire 

How to wear leggings for the holidays

 

Sweater, $52 | Thermal Tee, $12 | Booties, $125 Beanie, $19 

Many people are getting creative this year, hosting smaller get-togethers outside. Whether you’re sitting by a fire or snuggled up under a heat lamp, this look would be adorable. I created a simple column of color by adding the popular Old Navy long sleeve tee (another reader fave) as a base. Then, I found (and ordered for myself) this Fair Isle wrap cardigan

When I first saw it, I swore it was expensive, but much to my delight, it’s another Old Navy find for under $50 available in regular, petite, and tall sizes. 

Then I used these Sam Edelman tan booties. In our INSIDER group, we talked about when you can wear tan shoes with black bottoms and when to keep it to all black. My best tip is to add the tan to a look when it is casual because it will elevate it and add interest. If the outfit is more formal, keep it to black. 

Finally,  a hat is a fun accessory. You’ll stay warm and bonus points since you won’t have to do your hair.

Classic Combo 

 

How to wear leggings for the holidays

 

Tunic, $25 | Earrings, $12 | Mules, $88 | Lipstick, $28 

This last look is as easy as it gets. Add a long white tunic, like this one from J.Crew in all sizes up to 3X for $25. You want this to feel and look oversized. 

I love the look of an over-the-top earring with a collared shirt. It feels dramatic and perfect for the holidays. Here I used this $12 pair, also by J.Crew. These are big and will add some movement and glamour. 

Speaking of glamour, holidays at home should be a little extra, so I went with these gold fur-lined slipper/loafers and, for an added touch of flair, a bold red lip with my go-to brand Kosas. 

Tell us below, what are you planning on wearing at home this holiday?

The $30 Wrap Dress I’m Living In This Summer

$30 Wrap Dress from Amazon

Lately, I have not been feeling great about my body. As a creature of habit, I thrive in routine. Four months of stay at home orders took its toll on me mentally and then physically. 

Fitness-wise, the accountability I get by going to group classes and the scheduled time out of my house, free of distractions and interruptions, helps me create the boundaries I need to take care of myself.

So once gyms closed and homeschooling started, I was really at a loss for what to do. I am getting back on track and am beginning to feel better. But I’m nowhere near the weight or fitness level – more specifically, I don’t feel as strong, energized, or healthy as I was pre-COVID.

It’s frustrating, of course, but I know that if you feel like crap while you’re trying to get back to yourself, you’re never going to get there.

Doing little things, like getting a manicure, or putting on some makeup in the morning is so important. It sends a single to your brain that caring for yourself is a priority.

And finding a few things to wear that make you feel pretty is like jet fuel for motivation.

So a month or so ago, my sister-in-law came over in what looked like the perfect summer dress, from Amazon. I loved it so much I ordered one, then another, and then another. 

I feel slim, feminine and so pretty in them. 

And don’t be turned off by the model photos, you can see them on me and my very normal body below. 

The $30 Wrap Dress I’m Living In This Summer

Wrap Dress, $30

We’ve been trying to take advantage of the weather and support our local restaurants with a weekly date night. It’s lovely to sit outside and decompress for a few hours, out of the house and away from the kids, especially since there is nothing else to do. 

I am wearing these dresses on repeat. To dinners, for drinks outside, even to my daughters softball games.

I’m wearing the large and it fits perfectly. There are two styles available, one has flutter sleeves and a high/low hem, the other has a short sleeve and long maxi skirt (shown in red). 

Below is the blue version. I wore it to dinner last night in the city with my sister-in-law.

To care for them, I put them in a lingerie bag and wash on delicate. Then, I hang them to dry and use my steamer to remove any wrinkles quickly.

How to Wear Wide Leg Pants

How to Wear Wide Leg Pants

Wide-leg, lightweight pants are a fabulous option in the summer if you want an alternative to shorts or capris.

BUT, they are one of the trickiest bottoms to pull off because the success of the look is entirely dependent on balancing proportions.

You can’t just throw on any top. 

So today, I’m breaking down how to wear wide leg pants, with three outfits that can take you pretty much anywhere this summer. 

How to Wear Wide Leg Pants

How to Wear Wide Leg Pants

First, let’s talk about what you should look for in the pant. 

For this post, I went with these navy crepe trousers from 1.STATE. They are on sale at Nordstrom for $59 in sizes XXS – XXL in navy and white, and black for $39 here

Plus size? This option from Lane Bryant in a similar crepe looks perfect.

As an alternative, Lands End has a simpler pair, also in crepe, also a pull on with less fabric. Available in all sizes, plus here

Like many wide leg pants, these are high waisted. That’s important to note because it comes into play with the featured tops. 

Regarding length, you have options. If you want a length, they need to be hemmed perfectly for your height, meaning that when you’re in a shoe, they need to just skim the ground. This look works best if you are tall.

In the summer, many of these pants come in some kind of crop. Generally, the area around the top of your ankle to the bottom of your calf is ideal. Once you start cutting through the calf, you enter capri territory, and we all know how I feel about that.

Depending on your frame, the width of the pant may be overwhelming. If that happens, remember, you can have these easily altered. If you try these (or any pair) on and you the fit of the waist and rear, have them hemmed to your most flattering length and ask to take a little bit of fullness out. It’s an easy fix. 

How are you wearing these? 

The outfits below are ideal for the office, a date, or a small get-together. As always, you can shop this post full of practical recommendations OR use it as inspiration so you can see how the components work together.

Simple Structure

How to Wear Wide Leg Pants

Wide Leg Pants, $60  |  Shirt, $28  |  Sandals, $150  |  Bag, $30  |  Necklace, $13

This is one of my favorite looks because it’s elegant and has structure. Because the pants are so full, you need a top that will help create balance. This simple white jersey top from COS brings a lovely drape and feel.

They are calling it a “crop” top, but it’s not, it’s just short, and that’s what you want. You won’t show your mid-drift. Instead, this will sit over the high waistband, and you can leave it out, full or half tuck it. I LOVE it.

For the shoe, I used these reader favorites from Sam Edelman in bright white. A flat sandal works well here, so would a block heel. Avoid a delicate shoe because the fullness of the pant will overwhelm it.

Keep accessories simple with this long necklace ($13 on sale at Nordstrom Rack) to give a subtle layer that drapes against the fabric of the top, and a round straw bag from H&M provides texture.

Pretty Pattern

How to Wear Wide Leg Pants

Wide Leg Pants, $60  |  Top, $69.50  |  Sandal, $248  |  Clutch, $25  |  Earrings, $45 

Next, this patterned sleeveless top (from Banana Republic) is another lovely option because it gathers at the waist, creating a beautiful shape to the outfit. It’s a great top for the summer and available in several prints and colors. All are on sale for under $50, in regular and petite up to and XXL. 

I used these sweet earrings from Gorjana that mimic the top’s pattern, my favorite, splurge-worthy Tory Burch sandals, and this fantastic $25 woven clutch to add depth with texture

Monochromatic

How to Wear Wide Leg Pants

Wide Leg Pants, $60  |  Top, $39.50  |  Sandals, $120  |  Clutch, $17  |  Earrings, $68 

Finally, a monochromatic navy look. This is important because wearing one color can help you look taller (and slimmer!)  so if you are on the petite side, and want to try out a wide leg pant, this is a way to do it. 

This navy top has subtle lace trim on the sleeve – another easy-to-wear summer piece from Banana Republic. It also comes in white, light blue, and olive in regular and petite up to an XXL for under $40. 

Tuck the top in to show off the detail on the waistband. 

The sandals are the block heel version of the flat Sam Edleman sandals in the first outfit. Remember, you can add a heel, but keep the balance by using a block heel. 

Then the accessories are effortless. For earrings, my new favorite Soho studs from Julie Vos, and this $17 clutch, again, from DSW.

A Pretty $50 “Date Night” Dress

Date Night Outfit

Remember date nights?

It’s been over three months since Bri and I went out or did anything even remotely fun. The most exciting place I’ve gone is Target, and I’ll be honest, wearing a mask while you’re walking around it hasn’t lowered my bill, but it has removed all joy.

My home state of Pennsylvania has had some of the strictest stay-at-home orders in place since March. But today, my county’s restrictions are lifting, and restaurants can open for outside dining.

I made a reservation the second they were available (they all filled up in minutes) at one of our favorite places. Pretty sure we’re eating under a tent in a parking lot – but I do not care one bit.

We’ve been part of our community for over 15 years. We’ve watched it grow from an up-and-coming neighborhood to a robust and thriving urban suburb. Supporting our small business, especially our restaurants after all they have been through, and getting away from my kids for an hour or so is a no brainer.

AND I’m putting on a real outfit.

A Pretty $50 “Date Night” Dress

 

Date Night OutfitDress, $100 (ON SALE $50)  |  Sandals, $90  |  Clutch, $35  |  Earrings, $38 

 

LOFT is having another great sale. I picked up a few dresses early last week. Their shipping is some of the quickest without having to pay more, which is nice since generally shipping can take up to two weeks.

I picked up this dress anticipating outdoor dinner dates and I love it. I ordered the large and medium and end up keeping the medium which is my normal size. There isn’t a ton of difference in sizes so if you’re in between you might want to size up. 

It’s available in regular from an XXS – XXL and plus size from a 14 – 26. The sale price is fantastic. It’s gathered at the waist, has a pretty split neckline, a subtle shimmer thread running down the fabric, AND it’s lined.

A block heel is practical and stylish. These by Via Spiga are fantastic at an incredible price. They are so comfortable. You can certainly wear a strappy, lightweight option, but I like how these ground and dress down the look.

I added these oversized hoops from Gorjana to add some movement and layered detail. They are on sale for under $40. 

Finally a clutch.

A CLUTCH!!!!

Oh how I have missed tiny handbags. I featured this one in May’s Ten List, so many of you already have it. The “white” option is more like a bone. It’s only $35 and is inspired by Bottega Veneta’s “Cloud” bag which will run you about $1400.

A Sweet Floral Top for Jeans

A Sweet Floral Top for Jeans

One of my goals as we move through our seasonal content is to offer recommendations you can build on. A pair of jeans you purchased in January, work with boots you grabbed in February. So it only makes sense that a blouse in March creates a whole new outfit. 

That’s what we have today. A simple outfit created with wardrobe staples featured here on the blog, freshened up with this pretty floral top

But first, a quick note about sponsored content.

One of the reasons I don’t take sponsored content is so I can share my honest opinions. For example, I find physically shopping in Nordstrom more and more difficult, and I say this as someone who basically lived in the store when I was a stylist.

Their sales floor is scattered, their departments make no sense, their inventory mix lacks direction and their prices continue to rise.

Who, exactly, are they trying to target these days? 

If I took sponsorship dollars, I wouldn’t be able to say that. But I think it’s important for you to hear it from me in case you find yourself roaming the store wondering if you’re the crazy one. 

You’re not. 

But, if I were holden to sponsored dollars all I can do is praise my retail partners. 

That’s not to say Nordstrom doesn’t have great pieces. They do, but these days they are hidden in their oddly expensive, youth focused merchandise. 

Take this blouse by their private label brand Caslon

It’s the kind of reasonably priced ($59), nice quality, simple to wear piece I expect to easily find there.

It’s available in missy (up to a size XXL which equals an 18) and petite – so my petite ladies (!), be sure to grab this if you need some cute tops to pair with jeans. And plus sizes here. 

Pretty Floral Top for Jeans

A Sweet Floral Top for Jeans

Top, $59  (Plus, here)  |  Booties, $60  |  Jeans, $129 (marked down to $77 with code BLUES)

 

I picked it up in what they are calling Navy Pink/Yellow Cayce Floral print. It feels like spring with warm tones that look great with jeans.

It’s also available in a few other colors and patterns including a navy gamine floral (featured below), a pretty pale pink floral print, and solid ivory, navy and a gorgeous yellow. 

There is a little ruching at the top of the sleeve for an added bit of detail. It’s not as obvious on the patterned pieces, but you can see it clearly in the solid options. It also has a flattering split-top neckline. 

Sizing runs true. I’m wearing a medium (for context I’m 5’10 and usually wear an 8 or medium). 

Keeping with the idea that many of our recommendations are meant to build on past purchases (because that’s how you shop in the real world) this pieces is perfect for these Joe’s Jeans (on sale at Off 5th for about $77 with code BLUES)  and the most popular boots I’ve ever featured, the Sam Edelman bootie in Whiskey leather also on sale for $60. 

How to Wear

 

A Sweet Floral Top for JeansTop, $59  |  Booties, $60  |  Jeans, $129  |  Earrings, $50  |  Bracelet, $60 

Here’s a break down of the outfit, with the top featured in Navy Gamine Floral. I included some new pieces for Gorjana, my favorite line of reasonably priced jewelry.

I love these $50 earrings with tiny stud details. Their shape is fun for a casual jeans look. And this bracelet for $60 can be layered in with pieces you already own or stand by itself.
