If you have been following me for a while (on instagram @tnstyled) you know that I really am not huge into wearing colorful clothing. I do really love red but I just feel like wearing it as a sweater or dress is just not my thing, so I usually tend to just wear pops of red with lipstick or earrings. BUT with that being said, I found this sweater by ASTR (sold in Nordstroms, Shopbop) and I really do love it and am glad I gave red a chance LOL. I also think that pairing it with neutral accessories, like a gray hat plays down the red a little. Anyway, it is fully in stock at Shopbop with free holiday shipping!
I wanted to share this outfit with you guys because first off this vest is $36 from my favorite, Amazon! I love finding pieces like this on Amazon because they are first of all priced at such a good price point- and this vest is also really good quality. It can be worn with so much and dressed up or down.
I chose to pair this vest with the BEST leggings I have ever worn. I know a lot of people rave about the Spanx ones but THESE commando ones are the best of the best. The leather looks like real leather and feels like leather as well. I do like the Spanx faux leathers as well, but these ones are 1000% better and by far my absolute favorite.
I will post some pictures of how I styled my vest the other day and will link up all of my outfits details! I would love to hear from you guys and see what you think!
I wanted to share a few of my absolute favorite items with you and a few items that are on my holiday wish list this year! I love asking for useful items that I am going to use for many years or items that I am going to be using on a very regular basis. I have linked a few items for you guys below!
1.) Silk Slip Pillowcase – I have heard nothing but amazing things about this pillow case. I currently do have a silk pillowcase from Amazon and I do like it but I find that I continuously have to get a new one and it’s only silk on one side. This pillowcase is 100% silk inside and out and is highly recommended by doctors, hair dressers and beauty experts alike. It is good for anti aging and for your hair. It is described as an 8 hour beauty treatment for you every night so this is definately on my wish list this year!
2.) Ugg Robe– My parents got me this robe for Christmas last year and I literally wear it all year round. It is soon soft and cozy and I look forward to putting it on everyday LOL. It is a little expensive for a robe BUT I promise you will get soon much use out of it and will not be disappointed.
3.) Sorel Snow Boots– These are on my Christmas list this year! I have been seeing these Sorel boots for years now and I didn’t think I had a need for them until these last few years with all the snow we have been getting in NJ. My Hunter rain boots are just not cutting it for the snow anymore.
4.) Tory Burch Flats– I wear these flats almost everyday to work and they are so comfy. I have never really been a huge fan of flats because I have always found them to be pretty uncomfortable. These flats will mold to your feet after wearing them a few times- I didn’t believe this at first but I can tell you first hand they absolutely do and I have multiple pairs of these now.
5.)Gucci Marmot Sandals– I have been wanting these since I saw them in the Gucci store in NYC last year but couldn’t get myself to spend this much on sandals. This would make a great gift and they match with so much. I am obviously thinking of warmer days looking at these sandals!
6.) Calpak Roller Luggage– This was another Item I received as a gift for Christmas last year. My Husband and I were gifts the Rose Gold and Black luggage sets and I must say they have held up really well. We took a decent amount of flights this year and although the luggage did get a little dirty, well my rose gold luggage not so much the black bags, they held up extremely well and are large enough to fit everything you need. It’s such a useful gift and something that anyone can use for years!
I wanted to share one of my favorite outfits with you from Express since they are one of the stores who started their Black Friday Deals a little early. This outfit is one that can double as something I can wear to the office and something I can wear on the weekend! I love getting the most out of my clothes and being able to dress an outfit up or down depending on where I am going. I found the cutest (and most comfortable) leggings the other day and thought they would be so cute to wear with a dark green sweater for the holiday season!
I paired my leggings and sweater with my Rockstud Valentino Pumps, but this outfit can easily be paired with some black booties or flats and can be worn to work and dressed down a bit. I love Express so much because I find a lot of their clothing to be super versatile and very affordable, especially when they have a sale like they are this week at 50% off! I have found items that I can wear to work as well as items that I can lounge around the house in at Express and the quality (and price!) never disappoints. Be sure to check out their black Friday deals they have one of the best Black Friday Promos of the year from my past experience with them and this is definitely a store that is worth shopping at on Black Friday!
Express also has so many other cute items that you should jump on ASAP! The Teddy Bear sweatshirts are soo amazing and make a great gift. They sell out really fast too so I always try to get these items early on in the holiday season. I hope everyone has an amazing Thanksgiving with their families and eats lots of yummy food! I think its of of the few days calories don’t count right?! LOL
