Holiday dressing for the girl that’s always cold

Holy Shitake was it cold this day!! So so cold that I had originally planned on wearing this dress without the pants underneath, but as I stepped outside I realized WoAHHH ok, no way in hell am I going bare down there. It was way way too cold. And by cold I mean 40 degrees up in the mountains (yes Im a baby, and yes I am freaking out of how cold it will be in San Fran when we go this month). As you can tell, me and Mr. cold don’t mix very well. Maybe It’s because I don’t have the appropriate clothes. Actually, I’m pretty sure thats why. Either way, I love how this holiday inspired outfit turned out! Definitely a cute outfit to wear out into town, to a bar or to hang with friends during the Holidays. Free People can do no wrong especially when they bring in the crushed velvet holiday dresses!
This dress is actually worn backwards. Not a huge difference except that the lower part front was supposed to be a low cut back and the slit was meant to be worn in the front I kinda like how the lace peaks out in the front with the low cut top and the glimpse of leather pants only shows in the back. It’s more unexpected to me this way. If you wanted to dress this up a bit more for a fancier type of event, you could throw on some heels, get rid of the jacket (wear a nice coat) and some glad accessories!. What do you think? Would you wear this?
How as everyones weekend? I had fun hosting an event at JCPenney here in San Diego (will share that with you soon) and spent the day yesterday in LA visiting my friends over at Revolve and grabbing lunch with mom (you can catch it on my instastories on Instagram). Excited for this busy week and all the Holiday festivities to come!

    Firstly I LOVE the color of this dress. Seriously perfect for the holidays and just in general. Second, it’s VELVET! Double yes?! I think so. And LOL omg I can’t believe the dress is actually backward in your pics. I would have never guessed. I love how creative you got with it. Goes to show how versatile this dress is and who doesn’t love a little bit of lace? 😉

    Leather with velvet is such a great idea, especially in this cold cold weather. And you’re totally right. Free People is crushing the velvet trend this season. (Like my pun haha?)

    I love this velvet dress and I am such a wimp when it comes to the cold too! I love that you wore this backwards and added the leather pants! The back is so pretty in the front and I like the edginess of the leather jacket and beanie! You are the velvet queen! Xoxo, Christine

  11. Jo on December 13, 2016 at 1:47 pm

    That is such a stunning velvet dress! The color is absolutely gorgeous. I love that you wore it the other way around. I would never have noticed. It looks amazing and perfect worn the way you did.

    Velvet is so trendy and I love that you wore it backwords. I wouldn’t have known if you didn’t say anything, but I love a back moment so I’d wear this both ways. It’s a great holiday color. Gorgeous & genius! Love how you styled it down to wear out more often. 🙂

  16. Josie on December 14, 2016 at 2:44 am

    Oh girl! I feel ya shooting in the cold is the worst! I love how you took this amazing dress and made it yours by wearing it backwards! I seriously love the look of the lace in the front so much! A perfect dress for the holidays!
    Bisous, Josie

    You are so creative! I never would have thought to wear the dress in this way 1) layered so fabulously as you did and 2) backwards! Genius ideas for the cold weather. You made it look totally badass!
