Chic holiday.

Filed Under: Style

This is my fourth and final look in my collaboration with Wanted Shoes. Ladies (and gentlemen?), I give you “Chic Holiday”.

The Barb Flats fell perfectly into this category. I loved them paired with the Forget You Top from The Impeccable Pig. As I’m sure you’ve already noticed, I’m a detail person. The studs on the shoes and the beading on this blouse totally won me over! I couldn’t decide what bottoms I wanted to wear this these two items, and kept going back and forth between wearing all black and adding some color. Clearly, I finally settled upon adding a pop of red – which I thought really turned this into a true holiday look.

I am loving this color combination for this time of year. Red, black, metallic. Perfect.

It’s also worth mentioning that I considered wearing a lipstick that matched my pants but ultimately decided against it. There is such a thing as being too matchy, you know?








Outfit Breakdown:
Blouse: c/o The Impeccable Pig (Same.)
Pants: Gap (Save. Spend. Splurge.)
Shoes: c/o Wanted Shoes (Same. *buy two get one free)

Wrapped around a 1.25″ curling iron.

  1. I love the details on that blouse! So pretty and I am glad that you added the red to the outfit. I think it brings out the details in the blouse and shoes even more.

    I love the slouchy-ness of the top with the pants, and I love that the studs on the back of the shoes kinda look like a Christmas tree!

    Those shoes are so gorgeous – I have to get my mitts on a pair! I love this whole look – chic but still casual and fun. The fit of the pants with the top is perfection x

    Details for the win! I think they really take this outfit to the next level. I mean you would look nice anyway in the red and black simplicity, but there wouldn’t be anything to make me go, “whoa…I really love that top/shoes.”

  13. absolutely love this simple outfit, kayley. haha i am with you on the not being too matchy matchy, but i think this looks great!!

    For the record, I would have really enjoyed a matching lip.
    I think one can be too matchy-matchy, but it would have brought attention to your very lovely face.
    And there is no law against that!

    Merry Christmas!

    Cute outfit! Though I’m not a hug fan of red, those pants look good on you. I would swap out the red for a regular denim or beige if I were wearing it, though.

    Btw, aren’t you freezing your buns off doing these photos without an outer layer?
