Blogmas Day 3: Christmas Shopping Date OOTD

Hi beauties! For today’s Blogmas post, I thought I’d do an OOTD! For those of you in the UK or somewhere that actually experiences the seasons, this may not be the warmest option for you. But for us in Southern California where we don’t see snow or hail or much rain even, this is the perfect everyday winter look!Β Image.jpgHonestly one of the easiest and most put together outfits you could wear is jeans with a black boot and a fancy looking top. That’s exactly what I went for with this outfit, and it was also very comfortable actually! I found this blouse at the Topshop in Nordstrom during Black Friday. It was actually in the “Last Chance” section and it was the last one so I’m glad I got my hands on it.

A couple things I adore about this top is the print and the way the back is designed. The extreme floral detail that is usually very feminine somehow compliments the darker navy tones and black in this blouse. I’m in love with the little pops of orange, which I usually wouldn’t be attracted to in any look (orange isn’t really my color, lol). The back has a small cutout that is brought together with a little black ribbon. How freaking cute is that I mean come on?! As you may know, the mix between girly and edgy is something I need in every outfit and this top hits that mark all on its own!

As for accessories, since the neckline dips so low, I wore a gray bralette that matched the middle tones of this top perfectly! I got this bralette from a store called Owl Fish for about $12, which these types of bralettes usually sell for $20 or more so it was definitely a steal! Also I just haven’t been taking off my Tiffany’s olive branch necklace, but it ended up looking really sophisticated with this blouse. For shoes, I should probably do an entire post on these things since I’ve been wearing them everyday, but they’re a pair of mules from Steve Madden. Usually I’m not a huge fan of these slip on kinds of shoes, partly because I don’t think they’re very flattering on me. But I was completely wrong when it came to these. The inside is completely made of (faux) fur and the tops are black leather. They sell the exact same pair at Nordstrom, but without the gold buckle and I think that feature added a lot to the shoe as a whole. I don’t buy Steve Madden very often because it’s a little pricey, but I think these babies were definitely worth taking the plunge!

I decided to throw my hair up for a few of these photos. This top is very professional looking, and I think a nice updo would compliment it nicely. Peep the ugly green hair tie in my hair, lol! But I guess it’s also pretty Christmasy?? I love how this look can be very proper and lovely but also very casual. You could wear it to a short meeting (or at least the field I could go into, you could wear it to a meeting haha) or out on a Christmas shopping date! For me, walking through the mall during Christmas is so magical and beautiful. Such a fun time to shop for yourself and others! Alright that’s it for Blogmas Day 3, I really hope you guys enjoyed this little OOTD! Let me know your thoughts down in the comments below!

  1. I gotta say this is a pretty great outfit! The shoes are wonderful, I’m loving the fur and the gold buckle, two accents that are definitely my style. I’ve been meaning to get into the mules/slides trend, and Steve Madden is always good for lovely shoes at a reasonable price. I also like that bralette, I just got a very similar one in black today that I ordered online. Great post x

      1. I can see the neck hurting, I get that too, but they are otherwise far more comfortable than regular bras, so much so that I doubt I can ever go back! And I can’t wait to get the perfect pair of mules, nothing better than easy slip on footwear that goes with a lot of outfits! x
