Holiday Outfit Ideas ft. Tailored Curls

Hi everyone and happy Tuesday!  I hope all my college-aged readers are making it through finals week; you’re almost done!  For this week’s post, Maddie, from the blog Tailored Curls and I thought it’d be fun to show you a couple easy holiday party outfit ideas.  With Christmas and New Year’s right around the corner, you’re bound to have at least one party to go to!  I hope you enjoy!

The first outfit is one that kind of came together accidentally.  I was planning on just wearing the dress and tights but it was so cold, I had to figure something else out!  Luckily for me, layering is warm and trendy so I threw on a white sweater from American Eagle and I was good to go!  The dress that’s peeking out at the bottom is a beautiful, sleeveless dress from Urban Outfitters.  This dress works for almost any occasion, no matter what season we’re in, and it’s comfy too!  Underneath, I have some fleece-lined tights to keep me extra warm on those chilly December days and to top it off, I wore a pair of platform heels from LC Lauren Conrad.  This look has so many layers and interesting parts about it, I just love how it turned out!

The next outfit I wore is only to be worn if you’re definitely going to be inside all night, haha!  Although I was absolutely freezing (and getting strange looks from people), I had to include it because it’s an outfit comprised of two of my favorite things: dresses and vests!  I’ve recently been obsessed with little black dresses and this one is no exception!  I got it from a little shop in Williamsburg, VA called Three Sisters Boutique and have been dying to wear it ever since.  Overtop, I threw on an adorable fur vest from Altar’d State and slipped back into my black heels that completed the look!

How To: Style Boyfriend Jeans

Hi guys, welcome back to my blog!  Today, I’m going to give you a little guide of how to style boyfriend jeans!  This trend has been around for a little while now and I still love it just as much as I did at the beginning!  Keep reading to get my tips and tricks to mastering this look! 🙂

To start off, the jeans that I’m wearing are from American Eagle and, let me tell you, fit amazingly well.  It took me quite a long time to find a pair that fit the way I wanted them to and now that I have, I’m never looking back!  I did go a size down, however, so they aren’t as baggy as American Eagle intended them to be, but I like the fitted look better on my body type.

The first item I like to pair boyfriend jeans with is any pair of Converse sneakers.  It doesn’t matter if they’re low-tops or high-tops!  I think this look is so effortless and carefree and it allows you to look like you didn’t try too hard when choosing your outfit!  I chose my white pair of Converse to create a beachy, summertime outfit and I think it looks super cute!

The next item I am always pairing my jeans with is a big, cozy sweater.  I like to call this outfit my bonfire look because this is an outfit that is quickly and easily thrown together and is perfect for chilly summer nights.  If you keep a tank on under it, it’s perfect to be able to keep it on or take it off depending on your mood/temperature!  It’s also a convenient outfit if your boyfriend happens gives you his sweatshirt to wear! 🙂

Those are my two favorite ways to style boyfriend jeans, I hope you enjoyed!  If you try any of these out, let me know in the comments.  Thanks for reading and see you next week!

A Midsummer Day’s OOTD

Hi guys and welcome back to Allison in Wonderland!  Today’s post is going to be fun because I’ve never done one about all the little details of one outfit before!  So let’s get started! 🙂

Processed with VSCO with f2 presetThe outfit that I chose for this post is an outfit I’ve been waiting to wear for months and months.  I actually bought the pair of overalls from Forever 21 back in the wintertime for, I wanna say, around $10.  What a steal!  I almost didn’t buy them because I knew I wouldn’t get to wear them until the summer, but they were just too cute to pass up!  I was envisioning wearing them with a cute t-shirt underneath, just as I did in the photo to the right (also pictured in my last post Being a Tourist In: Virginia Beach).  But as the colder months passed and the overalls got pushed further and further towards the back of my closet, I forgot about them!  I only recently rediscovered them and I was so excited that I’d get to bring them on vacation with me!

Since the overalls give off a more relaxed vibe, I didn’t want to pair them with any jewelry that was too girly, so I went with my Daniel Wellington watch that I LOVE.  I have the Women’s Classic Bristol 36mm with the silver face and it goes with almost anything!  It can be dressed up or dressed down and it’s just the perfect accessory to add to any outfit.

The t-shirt I picked to go underneath my overalls is a super cute and comfortable t-shirt from American Eagle!  It’s a creamy white color with blue stripes and an adorable little green pocket that goes perfectly with the look of the overalls.  I was a bit worried the shirt would keep popping out of the shorts and I’d have to get a bodysuit-type top but I actually had no trouble keeping it in place!  I definitely recommend these overalls if you’re in the market for a cute and affordable pair!

Well, that about wraps up my first OOTD post, I hope you enjoyed!  Please leave a comment  if you have any topic suggestions for future posts!  Have a wonderful day! 🙂

Summer Outfit of the Day

Hi guys, welcome back to Allison in Wonderland!  For this week’s post, I thought putting together a little outfit of the day would be fun, especially now that we’re finally getting into summertime weather!

Pictured above is an outfit that I wore for a photoshoot I planned for my sorority, Sigma Alpha Omega.  SAO is the Christian sorority at James Madison and we had such a good day doing this shoot!  It was fun to see everyone dressed up and being able to spend the day doing something different.

My outfit is from an assortment of stores so I’ll get right to it!  My dress is from Urban Outfitters, my favorite store!  It’s a white dress with some lace detailing and it’s perfect for summer.  I’d been eyeing this dress for a while and by the time I finally got around to going to the mall, they only had one left and it was my size!  Woohoo!  A bonus to this dress is it has a built in slip so you won’t be able to see through it!  My army green vest is from American Eagle and perfect to pair with almost any outfit.  You can wear it with a sundress, jeans and a t-shirt, anything!  It’s not the most summery color but I think it provides a nice contrast to an outfit.  Finally, my little brown booties are from Forever 21 (they were also pictured in my Things I’m Loving Right Now post from back in March).  I’ve had these booties for a couple years now and they’re still going strong – I wear them all the time and they’re so comfortable, even when I have to walk all over campus!

That wraps up today’s “Outfit of the Day” post!  Thanks for visiting my blog and be sure to come back next Tuesday for another post!  Have a great week! 🙂
