NYE Look

Velvet Dress: Forever 21
Jacket: Vintage
Tights: any store, fleece lined
Sandals: Wanted
Headband: Anastasia Chatzka

I hope everybody has a great NYE! This year I won't be celebrating very much because I have to be up at 3:30am to catch a flight.  I doubt I will even stay up till midnight.  That's okay though because tomorrow I will be in Florida.  From there I am going to Mexico, Cayman Islands, Belize, and Honduras.  Stay posted for blog posts from my trip!  
I wore this same outfit last year on NYE but I didn't get to blog about it because I was in downtown Chicago and the weather was extremely cold and snowy.  I decided to wear it again this year so that you can see how amazing this jacket is!  I got the sandals yesterday when I went shopping for a new suitcase.  I love them too.  I feel like wearing sandals in the winter with tights is just unexpected, and therefore cool.

"Ugly" Christmas Sweater

10:48:00 PM Andrea Ryan 2 Comments






Sweater: DIY'd
Skirt: Forever 21
Tights: Vera Wang
Boots: Steve Madden
Headband: Anastasia Chatzka

          Merry Christmas! This is the outfit I wore for Christmas Eve festivities this year.  Every Christmas Eve I go to my Grandma's house and this year we decided the dress code would be "ugly Christmas sweaters."  I decorated this sweater myself.  All of the details are made from felt and t-shirt paint.  It's a really easy way to decorate a shirt.  If you can't read what it says, it says "Meowy Christmas."  Also, I picked up this velvet skirt the last time I was at Forever 21.  It seemed like a good staple skirt to have in my wardrobe.  They come in several colors.  My headband came from Anastasia Chatzka.  She is the designer that I intern for.  I saw it in her shop and though it would be perfect for Christmas.

         Happy almost Christmas to everybody!  I have been doing a bunch of Christmas shopping this week and found this sweater.  It's perfect for this time of year.  It's super fuzzy and warm.  The "WISH" letters are really sparkly and festive.  I chose to wear it with my faux leather skirt from Forever 21 and my Steve Madden ankle boots.  The whole look just feels very cheerful.

Holiday Dress

Dress: H&M
Booties: Go Jane
Purse: Expressions NYC
Tights: Meijer, but you can find them anywhere

          Since it's getting into the Holiday season I've decided to do a post about what I would maybe wear if I were going to a party.  I will be going to one on Christmas, but we've decided on an "ugly sweater" theme, so I can't wear a dress.  However, I did wear this one last year on New Years.  I never got chance to blog about it because the weather was awful.  I though this would be a good opportunity.  This dress is from H&M, last year I believe.  What I really love about this dress is the collar.  I am still very much into collars.  They are something that I have always liked.  The color is also perfect for this time of year.  I had to wear it with fleece lined tights because where I live it's freezing.  You can find some at pretty much any store.  They come in various colors and I highly recommend them for the cold.

Sweatshirt: H&M
Jeans: Forever 21
Fur Jacket: H&M
Boots: Steve Madden
Purse: Kelsi Dagger
Rings: H&M
Sunglasses: Forever 21
Necklace: antique, from my Great-Grandma


          This is about the time when I start counting down the days for everything, mainly until Spring. Since that's pretty far away, I count down until Christmas, New Years, my vacation, and weekends.  Counting down helps the season pass by faster.  It's not even Winter yet and it's virtually intolerable out.  Of course wearing warm and fuzzy clothing helps with the cold.  I'd wear a fur coat much more often if I had more of them.  This one is from H&M, last year.  I got the sweatshirt from H&M too, this fall.  I don't think they have it anymore, but they do have these pants.  My Kelsi Dagger purse was discovered on Black Friday.  I love the shiny hologram look.

 Jacket: Forever 21
Scarf: Forever 21
Top: Kohl's
Boots: Steve Madden


          On Saturday my family went to go cut down a Christmas tree.   It's been a very long time since we have done this.  My parents have been setting up the fake tree for the past several years.  I guess they just decided it's time to get a real one again, since my little sister is older now.
          Everything I wore is old, except the scarf.  I got that from Forever 21 a few weeks ago and I'm pretty sure they still have it.  Luckily, it was pretty warm that day so I didn't have to wear a big, bulky coat.  It was a good opportunity to wear this faux leather jacket, also from Forever 21.  I went with my "life is too short to wear bad clothes" philosophy.  I would have just worn a hoodie, gym shoes, and jeans, but I think that wastes an opportunity to wear real clothing and have a bit more fun.
