1 Piece, 3 Ways: Leather Pants

I love the look of leather pants. They scream cold weather chic and are surprisingly versatile. I recently got this pair (similar here) and have already been dreaming up the ways in which I will wear them this season. 

1 Piece, 3 Ways: Leather Pants




For days when I'm feeling casual, I'll top the pants with this charcoal sweater to keep warm. A pair of cute sneakers will keep the look casual. 

If I'm looking for a more sophisticated look for dinner, I'll pair it with this embellished button down and toss some essentials in a sleek clutch. 

Finally, if I'm looking to be fun and on-trend, I'll wear this hot pink moto jacket which keeps the outfit from looking too tough.

Are you wearing leather pants this season? If so, how do you plan on styling them?

Monday Must-Haves: Palette Party

I love any and all beauty products, but during the holiday season, I love all of the brand new palettes in stores. Not only do they come in pretty packaging, they make my life so much easier when I have to pack and travel. 



Monday Must-Haves: Palette Party


1. Sephora's "Glitz and Glam" medley is the perfect choice for all of those holiday parties that you'll surely be attending. Chock full of the beauty superstore's biggest hits, you can not only sample cult favorites such as Lancome's Hypnose mascara and NARS lip gloss in "Gold Digger," but you'll be picture perfect in no time. Bonus: the adorable laser cut clutch that holds everything.

2. If you're looking to splurge, look no further than the Dior Holiday Couture Collection. The beauty of this set is that you can create two totally different looks with one palette: dramatic (smoky) or sophisticated (nude). The reusable case can also be zipped up and taken out on the town in a bind. 

3. Sometimes a girl just needs a little space...in her clutch, that is. Makeup guru Bobbi Brown gets that which is why I adore her Everyday Pretty Lip & Eye Palette. This mirrored compact has three neutral shadows, two lip colors, and one gloss which is perfect for on-the-go touch ups. 

4. Too Faced's "All I Want For Christmas" collection will have you turning heads in no time! The pouch is adorably decorated with a turquoise and gold chevron pattern which will take you well past the holidays. Don't expect any high drama in this set; instead, think reliable basics that will stay put until you're ready to call it a night.

To Infinity (Scarves) and Beyond!

Temps are dropping and I've noticed a subtle chill running through my body as I dash outside. The thing that I love most about infinity scarves is that they're effortless, yet look polished. Here are a few of my favorites:
