A Faux fur jacket is definitely one item that adds a festive look to any holiday outfit. It brings out that cozy and warm feeling that a good Fall/Winter look desperately needs. Velvet is another one that you would want to wear for this festive season because of its sleek and elegant feel. That’s why I put together today’s look. The inspiration for this holiday outfit was keeping a confident look with a festive twist.
For this outfit, I’m wearing a plunging V neckline velvet bodysuit I got from Forever21 last year. I’m wearing it with the Raw Panel Jeans by NA-KD that comes in mid blue and features a high waist, straight legs with raw edged panel lines down the center and back, and raw cut ankle hems.

I also decided to wear my patent boots I got last year from Missguided. I picked a few similar ones for you to see here, here and right here. The faux fur jacket I’m wearing today was actually borrowed from my mother in law. I have to say that it’s definitely a statement piece for this look and for Fall/Winter fashion in general. I have linked some similar ones with a reasonable price point for you below
My bag I’am wearing is from Inge Christopher. It’s a “GRACE” Convertible Crossbody Bag that’s made with snake printed leather and can be worn two ways. It’s one of my favorite bags that you can wear all day through evening and for all seasons too.
I’ll have to say that I’am really not buying any new clothes this year since I’m trying to be more careful with my spending. It’s better to try and get the most out of what you already have in your closet than to shop for more clothes you might not actually need. You just have to make your outfit look more interesting, different and compatible with the seasons you are in.
I want to mention some behind the scenes story for this shoot. Finding places for a photo shoot is always a challenge, especially ones that you know you can get some great photos from. My husband and I stopped by one shopping center that we love to visit. We thought that this would be the perfect spot for this outfit. As we were taking the pictures, people were passing by and we thought nothing of it. The photoshoot went well and took us less than fifteen minutes.
Afterwords, I wanted to take the camera with us to walk around and look at the pictures we just finished taking. Next thing I know, two security guards walked up to us and said that we can only take pictures here if we pay them a fee. My husband and I were both surprised as we always take pictures there when going out to eat or just enjoying an afternoon with our family, and not once have we ever been stopped or seen anyone else being stopped for similar reasons. I defiantly think one of those people that walked past us said something and was not having a very merry holiday season. I hope she has a wonderful holiday though and wish her a Happy New Year. Share with me what you think and if you have had any experiences similar to ours.
Thank you for stopping by my blog today. Hope to see you again soon! 🙂
