A Gift Guide for the Fashion Lover in Your Life! (Blogmas Day 6)

Hey guys! Getting sick of Blogmas yet?? Not me! I’ve really been enjoying writing these posts for you guys and staying so consistent. That’s one of the up sides of this challenge, it sure does keep you accountable. I know personally I’m such a perfectionist and hate the thought of failure, so I’m sure happy with how Blogmas is going this year! As some of you may know, I started my blog because of my love of fashion and it’s grown to other avenues of creativity like beauty and lifestyle. So this post is dedicated to all my fashion lovers out there and to any in your life! Let’s jump into it.

Snakeskin Boots

We’ve been seeing this trend absolutely everywhere lately. Whether that’s on a skirt, shirts, hats, and of course…boots! Not gonna lie, I totally hopped on this trend pretty quickly. I haven’t been much of an animal print gal in the past but the way the texture is being styled is so intriguing to me! There’s something so edgy yet sophisticated about it. I honestly feel like a bit of a power woman with these shoes on, LOL. These boots I bought from Steve Madden. I was a little worried about what I’d pair them with but with my mostly black wardrobe, it hasn’t been a problem! My favorite look is the snakeskin boots with black or dark gray distressed denim, a white crop top, my long black cardigan that reaches the floor, and my gray hat. I actually posted this on Instagram a little white ago if you’d like to check it out there or below!

Leopard Print Skirts & Accessories

Continuing with the animal print trend, I couldn’t forget about leopard print. This was one texture I wasn’t sure I could get into. However, I’ve totally been sporting leopard print everything! From skirts to smaller accessories like belts and shoes, I’ve been obsessed without even realizing it. I first got a pair of slip on shoes with a leopard print that I’ve been wearing to work every week. They’re so easy to put on if you’re in a hurry and they really make your outfit unique. I then bought a thin belt with leopard print that I’ve realized can literally pair with anything you wear. Like the shoes, it’s the perfect unexpected accent piece. I’ve specifically been loving pairing leopard print with a bright color. I have a yellow turtleneck sweater (seen quite often on my Instagram) and it’s gone perfectly with the leopard print. You wouldn’t expect it to look amazing, but I’m into it.

Last and not least, I ended up buying a leopard print mini skirt. It’s been perfect for a night out, paired with a black long sleeve bodysuit underneath and some black ankle boots. Not only is it super comfortable, but you look extremely fashionable wherever you go. This skirt was actually very affordable at a small shop in my city, but I know with the current trends you could find something like this anywhere!

Unordinary Purses

This is something very new I’ve just discovered but Zara has a to die for purse selection! Who knew! They are not extremely pricey, but also not your usual Forever 21 purse price. Personally, I think you’re getting really great quality for the pricing. I’ve recently been loving this red purse from Zara. I normally don’t buy red things (or anything warm toned in general) because I don’t think it goes well with my skin tone. However, this purse gives a little spicy look to any outfit. Sometimes you just need a little spice in your life, ya know? Cool thing about this purse is the strap is adjustable. There are little clips along each strap so you can make it as short or long as you like. I prefer my purses a little longer so they can go cross body, but again it’s up to you! This is also the perfect going out purse. It’s not too big, yet will hold your phone, keys, cash, cards, or whatever else you may need! Definitely check out Zara next time you’re in need for an affordable yet high quality bag!

  1. I have never bought anything with animal print on it – I am more of a plain print kinda girl but I can admire how good it looks on everyone else. I think the belt is my favourite – it is subtle but cute. Never thought to buy a purse for someone but it is such a good present idea. xx
