black & tan





sweater: Sisley (similar here) // pants: Armani Exchange // shades: Marc by Marc Jacobs // heels: Vince // lip: YSL – LeRouge

The neck on this sweater is a great combination of a turtleneck and scarf all in one! A pair of black skinny jeans, sleek pumps and subtle gold accents keep this look feeling classic. A bright red lip and cat eye shades add just the right amount of pop. Have a great Monday!

hot chocolate


A cup of hot chocolate always seems to taste better during the holidays. Why use mixes and powders, when the real thing tastes better and is just as easy to make. Enjoy!

2 oz 85% dark chocolate
1/2 teaspoon (or more) cane sugar
1 cup milk (I use almond milk)

marshmallows, whipping cream, peppermint sticks, extra chocolate for garnish

how to:
Heat the chocolate in a small saucepan on low until melted.

Add the sugar and milk, whisk until blended. Maintain a low heat, whisking often until desired temperature is reached.

Divide among two 4-5 oz cups. Garnish with marshmallows and fresh chocolate shavings. Or, add a dollop of whipped cream and crushed peppermint sticks.


animal print shoes





blazer: Vince // sheer turtleneck: United Colors of Benetton (similar here) // pants: Armani Exchange // shades: Marc by Marc Jacobs // lip: YSL – Le Rouge 

Clean lines, a pop of red, and animal print make for a great combination. A sheer turtleneck with skinny jeans is sleek and adds just the right amount of interest to an all-black look. A classic look for the holidays!

winter white turtleneck





cashmere turtleneck: Vince // pants: Armani Exchange // shoes: Zara (similar here) // lip: YSL – Le Rouge 

A winter white turtleneck has been on my list for a while, and I finally found the perfect one! I love the soft cashmere and oversized neck on this one from Vince. It’s easy to dress up or down for the holidays. Here I decided on a pair of skinny jeans, pointy boots and a bold red lip. Festive, chic and simple!
