Hey hey babes! The countdown to Christmas is officially on! Today I am sharing two of my favorite casual holiday looks, as well as my favorite local boutiques for last minute gifts. My first look is a basic black sweater dress, by the super affordable designer Tobi. If you are looking for new trendy pieces, but don’t want to spend much, I recommend checking out this site! I couldn’t believe the quality of this piece, considering the crazy low price tag. A basic sweater dress is so easy to wear, and fun to style. I added a pair of funky tights by Wolford, ankle boots that are currently on sale by Marc Fisher, and bright knits by Kate Spade.
Look number two I love for a fun girls night. This lace tunic by Free People is so so pretty! It comes in a variety of great colors, but I love this raspberry shade for the holiday season. It is quite sheer, so a cami underneath is necessary, or some kind of “slip” as my mom would say 🙂 I love it for a girls night, because the flowy style allows plenty of room for bubbles and bean dips, yet still looks festive and fancy! I paired this beauty with my favorite faux leather leggings by Spanx, and my go to black booties. This tunic can be worn year round. I can’t wait to rock it with jean shorts for a summer night out!
