Velvet and Jesus…..

IMG_2273.E

It’s the most wonderful time of the year!! I don’t know about you but, I am ready to celebrate! Christmas is in 4 sleeps and I find myself longing for time to slow down! I want to savor all of the sweetness of this season. I have almost finished my Christmas shopping. Giving gifts is the most fun. In our home we have a birthday celebration for Jesus on Christmas Day. So, it’s only proper that I wear an amazing dress to the birthday party of the one who created….everything!

I have been in love with velvet ever since I was a little girl. I can remember wearing a velvet dress, white tights and patent leather mary jane shoes every Christmas. Maybe that’s why I chose this little number. Nothing screams holiday like crushed velvet.

I plucked this Golden Hi-Low Velvet Wrap Dress from the fancy pants designers of Lulus. Besides the fact that it’s absolutely adorable it’s also affordable! You can get this cutie for under $60!

A good shoe can give you all of the confidence in the world. Although I love a black patent leather pump, I am going to give my self a standing ovation for scooping these sparkly ladies off of the clearance shelf of H&M during the summer. I payed $9 for shoes that have me feeling like the ever fabulous Carrie Bradshaw. Little girl Wendy would be proud. 🙂

Christmas is definitely an appropriate time to indulge in great fabrics, sparkly shoes and fun makeup. So, this is your chance! Velvet is a hot fashion trend currently and pretty much everything is covered in glitter. So, head out to your fave stores and leave with only the most Properly Stylish items.

Blessings to you and yours!

XOXO,

When all you have is Target….

I get it! Life is busy and there seems to be very little time to focus on your upcoming fall wardrobe. I mean, seriously….school is about to begin, the kids have to look Properly Stylish, the ease of summer is going away and the hustle of a strict routine is creeping in. Yoga pants, a t-shirt and a messy bun may be all you can muster.  The struggle is real! But, I can help you pull together a great fall wardrobe. The best part of all….you don’t have to run to a mall or boutique. We are going to shop where you are already shopping for your kids school supplies and grabbing a few things for dinner….Target!

Let’s chat the “No Fuss” staple, the t-shirt. A comfy t-shirt paired with skinny jeans can be easily dressed up or down. I love this cutie from Target! Metallics are always included in the top Fall/Winter fashion trends and this one is worth every bit of the $14.99 you will spend on it! You can dress it up or down with jeans, dressier pants, a pencil skirt or full skirt. The possibilities are endless.

Here’s another comfy and sleek t-shirt in a dusty rose. It looks high end but without the the high end price tag. It’s a knit jersey blend which is great for these southern seasons where it really doesn’t start to cool off until late October. Allow it to stand alone with great statement jewelry or add a timeless jean or leather jacket.

Speaking of a great jacket….look at these beauties! They are faux leather and will run you about $39.99. You can wear with jeans and a t-shirt or over a maxi dress. You can snag the black one here and the tan here.

The top designers have spoken and both Power RED and LACE are huge trends for fall 2017. How much do you love this Who What Wear Red lace tee? For the love of lace and snake print! I love this!! That skirt is amazing. It’s sweetness with a bit of edge.

I love a great romper and this one has so many great details. It’s modern, sleek and just the right amount of sass. The top portion is blouse like and the ruching on the leg is a great added detail. The pant suit seems to always make the fashion trends list. You can add a suit jacket to this romper and be on trend. Add these block heeled sandals  and you are set! I have those sandals in Robins Egg Blue and I adore them! This outfit will definitely be in my closet!

Ankle boots and mules are IN! These are a few of my favorites! Can we talk about the faux Pony Hair Mules??? I love them. I’m having a flash back to the 90’s.

So many floral prints flooded the runways. I love this little wrap dress paired with olive booties!! Wrap dresses are perfect for every body shape!
