Outfit Ideas for the Holiday Season!

Saturday, 22 December 2012

I put together a LookBook for the holidays, and this dress featured in it! I thought it would be perfect for a Christmas Party or New Year's Eve Party! It's probably one of my favourite purchases of the season, and what I love most about it is that it can be styled numerous ways, formally or casually! Kudos Topshop! 
Thought I'd pop it up on the blog with the other outfits I put together! 
Be sure to check out the LookBook (below)! :)


Dress: Topshop
Shoes: Forever 21
Bag: H&M
Bracelets: H&M

~~~

Love this jacket I got from Forever 21 a few weeks back! It has a Chanel-like feel to it...the Colour, design and feel! My Christmas Day Outfit!


Jacket, Top & Chain: Forever 21
Leggings: H&M
Boots: Zara
Bag: Topshop

~~~

This one is a little casual, but it's great to run around doing those last minute bits of Christmas shopping!


Jacket: H&M
Shirt: Zara
Leggings: H&M
Shoes: Converse
Bag: H&M

~~~

Here's the LookBook...
