Winter Warmth

Wearing – Top: Nordstrom | Leggings: Lysse |Vest: eBay | 
Necklace: Bauble Bar {only $20 right now!} Bracelets: Tiffany & Co; David Yurman
Watch: Michael Kors | Shoes: Joe's {similar}

Snow and falling temps call for warmer pieces, and in my case, lotsa layers! Let's be honest, I'd love to hibernate in my house and cozy up in sweatpants and a thermal until the weather breaks. However, since becoming a bear doesn't appear to be a promising career in my future, I guess I'll continue my full-time gig as a PR Manager.

So how do I stay warm during the winter months? One word, layers. I have a closet full of coats, very warm coats. What do I do? I carry my coats instead of wearing them–logical right? What can I say, I never professed myself to be a genius by any means. So in place of my coat, I find that layers are my best friend, which is exactly what I did with this look. Vests are my best friend in the winter, and you can't go wrong with a furry one. Tanks, long sleeves and bulky sweaters all help keep this non-coat wearing girl perfectly cold and ready to take on winter.

Is there anyone out there who, like me, loves coats but hates wearing them!? I just can't stand how I feel like the stay-puff marshmallow man in them, and then fight with getting them off in the car.

Holidays with Class

Wearing – Blazer: AE {old} | Tank: Pitaya {old} | Jeans: Old Navy | Shoes: Guess {old} | 
Bracelets: White House Black Market {sold out}, Olive + Piper {sold out} | 
Necklaces: Layered & Long {custom order} | Watch: c/o Daniel Wellington

Friends–we are days away from Christmas at this point, and this girl couldn't be more thrilled! I love everything about the holiday season and while I'm always sad about how quickly the time flies, I'm even more excited to bring out my elf-self and deliver gifts to my loved ones. But before we can get to the gift-giving, can we talk about holiday style? In my opinion, a blazer and chic top are always a classic style appropriate for Christmas with the family. One exception to this rule is Christmas day where pajamas are a must!

With the classic, tailored look of a blazer, you have to have classic, chic accessories along with it which is why the Daniel Wellington Lady Sheffield watch fits perfectly with this look. You've seen me tout this watch in this post and this one, but to really get the feel of this watch you need to try it for yourself. To help sweeten this deal, Daniel Wellington is offering our readers 15% off this holiday season. On top of free worldwide shipping, enter the code holiday_regallysoled to receive a discount on your purchase. Also if you purchase a second strap, you can receive free gift wrapping too! Seriously a great deal for such a classic timepiece.

Happy holiday's my fellow stylish friends!

Santa Is Faux Real

Top: Marshalls (old) | Vest: Ebay | Jeans: AE | Boots: Target (old)

Have I ever told you how much I love Christmas? Even on casual days, I like being festive during the holiday season! This casual look incorporates subtle hints of seasonal-inspiration: green plaid, faux fur, sparkly gold accessories, and a red lip. What more could you want for a mid-December day at the office?

Early next week Jaime and I will be sharing our fancy-schmancy holiday looks as we have our company Christmas party this Friday. Stay tuned for feathers, sparkles and more!

The Official Colors of Christmas


Top: Target | Vest: Old Navy | Jeans: AE | Scarf: Brina Box | Hat: Nordstrom | Boots: Madden Girl | Inspirational Cuff: Alisa Michelle | Safety Pin Bangle: In Pink

If this casual look doesn't show how much I love Christmas, I don't know what does! Why, you ask? Well, because it incorporates the official colors of Christmas - red, green and leopard, of course! (Yes, I know leopard is a print and not a color but let's not dwell on the details) This look was so cozy and festive and one of my favorites of the season. It's perfect for a crazy day of shopping or an evening spent ice skating.

Stay tuned for more holiday-inspired looks later this week!

A Little Holiday Sparkle

Wearing – Sweater: c/o Satori Crystal Boutique | Leggings: Groop Dealz | Boots: Frye
Watch: Michael Kors | Necklace: c/o Kacie's Closet | Bracelets: David Yurman & Tiffany & Co. {no longer avaible; similar}

When I picture holiday style, I picture glam clothing with extra sparkle for the most wonderful time of the year, and this sweater totally fits the bill. The pictures definitely don't do this stunning piece justice, as there are really fine strands of silver woven in the loose knit design of this sweater. In addition to the beautiful loose knit, the sweater has a built in cami–totally solving the problem of, "What do I wear underneath this". The chiffon ruffle around the bottom completes this sweater, making whatever you pair with it look dressed up and chic. Seriously adorable people, I couldn't make up this glam-factor if I tried. To complete this look, I paired the sweater with fleece leggings–a must in my book for wintertime chill–and tall Frye boots. Add some silver accessories and a fun statement necklace and you're holiday-ready my friends.

Holiday Survival Kit - Regally Soled Style

2014 Holiday Survival Kit

While it might be dubbed "the most wonderful time of the year" the holiday season can also be the most stressful time of the year as you look at coordinating schedules for family get-togethers, buying gifts and braving the droves of people in the mall. Ugh, just typing all of those makes our heads spin, but at the same time we love it nonetheless. We get through the holiday season, however, with a few aces up our sleeves–enter our holiday survival kit (and no kit is complete without the perfect bottle of wine).
 
The Body Shop Vanilla Brulee Body Butter // Cold, dry weather calls for body butter, and when it's in a holiday fragrance it's even butter...er, we mean 'better'.

Harney & Son's Holiday Tea // We love hot cocoa, but nothing is better than a cup of tea that tastes like Christmas in a cup. This tea is amazing and the mix of spices will leave you prepped and ready to deck the halls.

ABC Family's 25 Days of Christmas // Seriously, shove the entire network in our crate and we'll be golden. We started watching Christmas movies on Halloween, so an entire month dedicated to holiday cheer is fine with us!

Kat Von D's Studded Kiss Lipstick in Adora // There is nothing more classic than red lips during the holiday season–see Taylor Swift's new CD 1989 to confirm this thought. Yes, it's on repeat in our shared office. You'll thank us later.

Michael Buble's Christmas CD // When we aren't blasting Tay-Tay's new CD, our Spotify accounts are being blown up by Christmas classics sung by none other than Michael Buble, Mariah Carey and Jessica Simpson...and maybe a little Justin Bieber–don't judge, you know you love some of his songs, too. You catch our drift, we're filled with cheer over here.

Voluspa Maison Holiday Votive Candle Set // If you've ever stepped foot in an Anthropologie, you've smelled a Voluspa candle. It smells like heaven and it's instantly calming, which is just what we need during the holiday madness.

Seven Daughters Moscato // While we'd like an entire crate filled with this wine, we'll settle for a bottle...or two. I'm pretty sure this alone could get you through the holidays.

Snack Factory White Chocolate Peppermint Pretzel Crisps // Seriously, these white chocolate covered peppermint pretzel crisps are something we look forward to every holiday season. Unfortunately, we haven't been able to find them yet this year, but when we do, rest assured there will be several bags demolished.

After writing this post, we are seriously jonesing for some wine and pretzels and our favorite Christmas movies. Clearly, we are super easy to buy for. Give us food and Taylor Swift (music or in-person) and we are happy. But, what do you get the more difficult ones on your list, aka men? We found Man Crates online and knew that these gifts were perfect for all types of guys–gamers, golfers, drinkers and jerky-eaters (seriously, a crate full of jerky is a guy's dream). Check out these crates and we promise it will be one of your favorite gifts to give this holiday season.

...but seriously, don't you wish your favorite things could come in a crate? We may be on to something here.

Best (P)laid Plans

Wearing – Top: GAP {old; similar} | Jeans: Old Navy | Boots: Nordstrom {old; similar} | Scarf: Stacy Brown Designs | Bracelets: Olive + Piper {sold out} | Belt: Anthropologie {old} | Necklaces: Layered & Long | Watch: c/o Daniel Wellington

I'm a huge fan of the blanket scarf trend, or any scarf in general. The luxe look of plaid, however, gets me every time. You'd think after living through the 90's I'd be sick of plaid, but I think it has such a classic look that I could never truly tire of it. However, while I love this monogrammed beauty, I styled this look completely around my amazing Daniel Wellington watch. As you saw in this previous post, I'm all about the this watch's versatility and the slim, minimalist face. You have probably noticed that I typically love big, chunky accessories. From bracelets to necklaces and earrings, I typically wear large statement pieces. However, I found that this watch pairs perfectly with them and provides just the classic look I love.

In lieu of the holiday season, Daniel Wellington is offering Regally Soled readers a 15% discount off any purchase they make at http://www.DanielWellington.com when using the code holiday_regallysoled. In addition to 15% off their fabulous collection, you can also get free gift wrapping when you purchase an extra strap and free world wide shipping. As with every holiday season, I'm always looking for ways to save and I've definitely found one here!
