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!

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! 🙂
