Wax & Wine

Happy Monday! How was your weekend? I barely crossed anything off of my to-do list, yikes. Oh well, here’s to having a productive week! :)

I’m back in action today (slight hiatus last week) with another outfit that’s perfect for the holidays ahead! I teamed up with American Eagle to style this softer-than-soft sweater for a holiday get-together. To make it a bit festive, I chose a pair of waxed skinny jeans in a deep wine color, a dark lip to match, and a fabulous pair of leopard pumps! Of course, no outfit is complete without jewelry so I added a statement necklace in coordinating colors and a basic bracelet that looks anything but boring. (Check out the post on their blog here!)

    Lovely look! I’m wearing the same Old Navy jeans in my post today! Aren’t they great? American Eagle always has excellent sweater options – some of my favorites are from there!

    Loving the added dark lip – it really suits you!

    Love this outfit- perfect for a holiday gathering. Cute video too! This is the first place I’ve lived that doesn’t have a fireplace, I’m not sure where to hanging my stockings.

    Leopard print and oxblood (a.k.a. maroon, deep wine, etc.) are such an awesome combo in my book! They both pair so awesomely with that sweater! A very holiday appropriate outfit w/ a touch of edge. I like it! 😉

    xo, Stephanie :)
