What To Wear: Winter Wonderland

What To Wear:  Winter Wonderland

What To Wear: Winter Wonderland

Just because it’s not snowing doesn’t mean winter weather isn’t here, and chilly! And just because it’s a winter wonderland doesn’t mean you can’t look legit while staying warm! That’s why I’ve teamed up with Linda Montavon for what to wear this holiday season and in the new year to ward off the chill!

Alicia’s Look:

Alicia's Winter Wonderland Look

Alicia’s Winter Wonderland Look

Staying warm in Nor Cal is a lot different than other winter weathers but does require some winter fabrics, layers and a warm scarf like the mark. Glam All Around Stole.

I like to glam up my winter looks with more luxe fabrics like these velvet pants (Loft outlet), pony-hair bag (mark., old) and suede pumps, (mark. Standing in the Wings Heel) and of course the most glam of them all a super soft faux fur stole!  The mark. Glam All Around Stole has to be one of my favorite finds this season!

For winter I like to layer my winter white coat (White House Black Market) and faux fur stole over a chic blouse like the mark. Just A Peek Blouse.  The rich color works great for the holidays and all through winter but the cut-out details make it way more fun!  Who says winter fashion can’t be fun! If you have a casual house party this would be a great outfit for NYE!

Linda paired her winter outerwear with a pop of purple also from Avon proving the point that warm and cozy can also be cute and chic!  Maybe you plan on an outdoor ball drop for New Years Eve?  This outfit would be perfect for that!

Just in time for all the holiday sets to come out, this Mani Monday is all about the fall release from OPI, the Washington DC Collection by Kerry Washington.  I got this from a pal on my birthday back in August and has been my go to colors this fall.  Good thing is, they work for winter too especially with the perfect must-have colors in the mini set.

You can shop OPI at tons of retailers, Ulta or Amazon are usually my go-to for these mini sets.  Nail polish is always a good idea!

Biggest Vote Of Our Generation… are leggings pants?

Biggest Vote Of Our Generation

Biggest Vote Of Our Generation

Did you think I was talking about the Presidential election!? The Trump vs Clinton election is pretty big too, but the real debate is over if leggings are pants!

source

Against  – You basically can see right through them, and show way too much!  Additionally, wearing them as pants is like a mullet, you have this casual pant trying to be business… nope.

source

For – They’re super comfy, like you’re lounging around but actually your not… or could be… because they’re super versatile for a lot of outfits and occasions, and they fit inside boots/booties no problem.

mark. Tight Laced Pants

mark. Tight Laced Pants

The Winner – What it comes down to is that not all leggings are created equal!  Fabric, style and how you wear them make all the difference.

The Item That Will Change Your Mind – mark. Tight Laced Pants

mark. Tight Laced Pants

mark. Tight Laced Pants

These are my vote for the leggings/pants debate that will have you all for it.  They stand out because they are thick, like real pants thick, so you can wear them without any fear of sunlight or showing off too much.  They have a style to them, the seaming down the front not only elongates legs but creates a more structured look.  Best of all they have this super fun lace up detail in the back that you can wear tight and keep it close or a little looser and show some skin.  Plus the waistband is a nice banded waist so you can wear them with pretty much any top and avoid that clashing styles (mullet) issue.  They’re just as versatile as any other legging… except maybe you wouldn’t want to wear these to work out in, but chasing after a toddler workout is totally functional in these.  You could also wear them with a t-shirt and sneakers for a casual look or like I did with a split back lace top.  Either way these mark. Tight Laced Pants are the right choice!

Fall Basics: The Blanket Scarf

Fall Basics - The Blanket Scarf

Fall Basics – The Blanket Scarf

As humorous as it is to call all these highly repeated fall activities “basic,” there is a reason why you see every blogger/basic girl headed to the pumpkin patch with her Hunters on, Starbucks in hand and blanket scarf wrapped around them. They’re freaking functional! Cooler weather is creeping in more each day along with wet weather and shorter days so a fall basic makes them not only more enjoyable but also more fun! My biggest fall basic right now is the blanket scarf!

#1 Reason Why You Need A Blanket Scarf – it is a blanket you can wear!

Us perpetually cold people unite!  A fashion trend we can get behind, being warm.  Even in mild California, Pennsylvania Alicia is still dethawing.  So a blanket – er i mean scarf- is my best accessory when cold.  You can bundle all up in it, drape it over your shoulder or lap, belt it as a cape/shawl/ruana/poncho for a sweater top layer look.  Either way you’ll be warm.

Wear It Classically Wrapped As A Scarf

This fall I’m absolutely loving the mark. Blanket Check Scarf.  It is reversible print features a black/brown/white plaid and a black and white herringbone on the other.  The colors are the perfect fall accents to go with pretty much whatever you are wearing.  I already have a holiday plaid one so this one is a nice addition.  PLUS it is like 2 scarfs in one with the duo prints.  The quality is really great especially for only $26!

The Cold Shoulder

The Cold Shoulder

The Cold Shoulder

Off the shoulder tops were a huge trend this summer and the trend continues on for fall and winter!  The cold shoulder top is the fall version featuring shoulder cutouts.  I’ve always been a fan of this look and when mark. had thier version on a flash sale I scooped it up!  (SIDENOTE:  A new flash sale is hitting the eboutique on Halloween 10/31 so be sure to see what goodies are on additional 31% off!)

Fall Trends - Cut Out Shoulder and Button Front Mini Skirt

Fall Trends – Cut Out Shoulder, Button Front Mini Skirt, Ankle Boots and Choker.

Big trends for fall this year are cut out shoulders, ribbed fabric, button front mini skirts, ankle boots and chokers, all of which I’m wearing in this look.  I personally love each of these trends and even more so all paired together in the right way.  As the weather gets colder each of these can be adjusted like with jeans instead of a skirt, or with tights, tall boots and a leather jacket!

I like how easy it is to wear cut out shoulder tops, they really give the look of something so fashion forward but you still stay comfortable and functional!

Fun fact – this skirt is from like 2006 maybe 2007 it’s been in a pile of donation items I’ve never did anything with for yrs… yes yrs.   When I saw all the button front mini’s coming back I was like ooooh I have one of those!  It was like new maybe worn once or twice so for me it’s like a come up!  Moral of the story shop your closet, shop your attic and shop your donation piles if you’re super lazy like me you might get a come up too!  You can also shop my eboutique at http://www.youravon.com/aliciahessinger and get yourself a FREE tote bag and beauty set (including my FAV eyeliner!) with promo code BAGSWAG

For my mani I used 2 Jamberry wraps, In The Air and the October Hostess Reward wrap.  I did an accent nail in red with bronze glitter (Avon).  I just love the little cardinals on the In The Air wrap, you can shop in the Air here but for the October Hostess Reward wrap you’ll have to host a Jamberry party!  If interested hit me up, or if you just love the wrap and want it let me know I can hook you up.
