Apres Ski: Ski Prints

Apres Ski:  Ski Prints

Apres Ski: Ski Prints

Winter has me currently crushing on all things apres ski (as seen here). With my upcoming winter weekend trip I’m planning and pinning so many ski prints. Ski prints range from fair isle to plaid and everything in-between. Basically, all you winter favorites fit for a chalet!

Avon Zoey Knit Vest

Avon Zoey Knit Vest

I picked up this Avon Zoey Knit Vest from the Southwest Capsule Collection.  It technically is an Aztec print, but by pairing it with winter pieces it reads ski print.  It all comes from native prints which are all very similar.

Wrap Belt Tied In The Back!

Wrap Belt Tied In The Back!

For winter wear, I layered the Avon Zoey Knit Vest and tied the wrap belt in the back so it give is a little different shape.  Layering over a black turtleneck, Avon Sloan Turtleneck in black, lets the vest be the statement piece.

It wouldn’t be winter wear without some boots!  These glossy black Hunter boots are staples for me in the winter.  I find them be so comfortable and they work better than any boot to keep out the wet, plus they are fashion friendly!

Winter Staple:  Hunter Boots

Even though I am in mild weathered California, I still find a need for warm winter pieces.  Especially for weekend trips to snowy Tahoe!  Which is why I’m super excited of my pearl embellished knit hat find from Charming Charlie!  Perfect winter piece to go with a casual winter look.

Apres Ski is by definition the party after skiing, so what makes this look more apres ski than a sparkly statement earring!? This Avon Looped Linear Earrings glams up an otherwise super causal and functional outfit.

Layer on the ski prints!

I think I definitely found a good look to pack for my Tahoe weekend, along with wearing it all winter long!  You can get my vest, turtleneck and earrings at http://www.youravon.com/aliciahessinger which would also qualify you for the newest A Box!  (see more here).

Alicia’s Look:

Alicia Cookie Exchange Look

Alicia Cookie Exchange Look

In my experience cookie exchanges are usually a casual affair, so it’s a perfect time to wear jeans and a sweater (Old Navy).  To make those casual staples more party perfect apply the right accessories.  The highlight of my outfit is my snowflake choker necklace, rep lips and statement heeled boots.  I’m wearing the Avon Velvet Choker Charm Necklace, mark. All Butter Now Lip Treat in Fired Up and the mark. Rush of Plush Booties.  The rich textures make these trendy pieces party perfect.  And the boots are so comfortable you can wear them for the whole gig without having to switch shoes!

Not all holiday looks are all glitz and glam, some are just classy AF.  And what’s classier than a classic LBD!?  Sometimes just a classic black dress is all you need for your holiday looks!

Avon Chain-Detail Dress

Avon Chain-Detail Dress

No one needs to argue the power of a Little Black Dress but this Avon Chain-Detail Dress is a must have!  Not only is it a great year round dress in its crepe like fabric but its a great dress for the holidays too!  The best part about it, its only $16.99 at my eBoutique!

Removable Black Chain Detail

The dress features a removable black chain detail around the neckline so you don’t need a necklace. You could easily remove it and pair this dress with your favorite statement necklace.  For this classy af look, I went with a statement earring instead with the Avon Modern Pearlesque Tassel Earrings.  For the rest of my jewelry I went with a simple black watch (Michael Kors) and a simple sparkly bracelet (Avon Modern Glamour Jet Pave Stretch Bracelet).  On lips mark. Vinyl Pout Lip Paint in Glamour.  (could that be any more perfect of a name for this look!?)

Luxe Fall: Black and Camel

Luxe Fall:  Black and Camel

Luxe Fall: Black and Camel

A color combination that always looks luxe is black and camel. A classic combination that works year round, but looks extra appropriate for fall. This fall I found the perfect luxe fall look with black and camel with the mark. Drape Expectations Dress.

mark. Drape Expectations Dress.

mark. Drape Expectations Dress.

My go-to dress this fall has been this mark. Drape Expectations Dress.  It’s super easy to wear, especially for work, one and done!  This dress features a camel sheath dress with a black overlay to create a color block effect.  It’s in a crepe like fabric making the classic color combo even more luxe.  The color blocking/cut in effect also gives the illusion of a slimmer you, and that’s never a bad thing!

To luxe up the look even more I’m wearing the mark. Tough It Out Necklace, Mixed and Matched Bracelet and a genuine leather tote, the Avon Whipstitch Leather and Suede tote.  (all available here)

For the warm fall we’ve been having, this dress has seen a lot of wear just by itself.  Now that its officially November, this dress can easily transition with a cardi or blazer, some tights and boots.  I have this great camel and blacked striped long open cardigan I love wearing with it! It would also look really cute with a black turtleneck underneath, as it has that faux jumper look to it.  A classic dress like this is never a bad idea to add to your closet!

You can shop my entire look at http://www.youravon.com/aliciahessinger and because this dress is $42 you already qualify for the A Box for only $10!  Get red-y by adding this on and you’ll have a head to toe look perfect for you luxe fall!  (see more about the A-box here)

If the world of alicia was the internet #wrapdress would totally be trending.  I’m slightly obsessing over wrap dresses and finding a few to add to my arsenal after picking up this navy one at Ross (also currently obsessing over, such great dress finds lately!).  This past wrap dress look is one of my all time favorite outfits (and posts!).  A wrap dress can be SUPER flattering on all body shapes, that’s why they’re so popular and Diane von Furstenberg is a freakin legend.  Here are the wrap dresses I’m currently obsessing over:

Avon Bordeaux Knit Dress – and paired with that adorable faux fur stole, I think this has to be my Thanksgiving day look!  (s-3x $24.99)

Diane von Furstenberg Long Sleeve Floor Length Wrap Dress – Another reason I need the Avon version is because I don’t have $548 to splurge on a DVF.  LOVE this full length red with the cute neck scarf and booties… swoon!

What To Wear: Fall Dresses

Fall is officially here weather I like it or not, or weather the weather suggests it or not.  One thing is for sure, its time for fall dresses!  If its still hot, or gets warm in the afternoons, a fall dress is the perfect solution.  Linda and I have 2 fall dress options we’re loving for fall…

Alicia’s Fall Dress:  Avon Zip-Back Double Layer Dress $29.99

Avon Zip-Back Double Layer Dress

Avon Zip-Back Double Layer Dress – and Lexi pondering…

An easy fitting navy dress is never a bad idea.  This Avon Zip-Back Double Layer Dress is one of those throw and go options.  The keyhole neckline means you don’t need a necklace and the exposed zipper and split back add just enough style to stand out.  I like this dress for fall because it’s navy, which is a great transition shade, and it’s super easy to wear, and will go with warm weather sandals, to booties, to cold weather boots!

Also Wearing:  Earrnings, Bracelet:  Avon Lavena Collections; Shoes:  Shoedazzle, Bag:  Brooks Brothers (but for a similar look try the Avon Saffiano Leather Dome Bag)

Linda’s Fall Dress:  Avon Open Shoulder Mock-Neck Dress $29.99

Open-Shoulder Mock-Neck Dress

The silhouette on this Avon Open Shoulder Mock Neck dress is super on trend, add in an unique print in harvest colors and you’ve got yourself a fine fall dress!  Linda, loves this dress for fall because, “this dress is super comfy, fully lined and transitions perfectly for autumn days. Expect complements when you wear it!” – Linda Montavon, View From The Top Co-Author.

Linda is Also Wearing:  Avon Stainless Steel Timeless Collection Drop Earrings, and Long Necklace and the Stainless Steel Eternal Collection Linked Bracelet along with the  Avon Cushion Walk Lace-Up Gigi Flat.

What To Wear In Late Summer

What To Wear In Late Summer

What To Wear In Late Summer

As much as I’ll “never let go” of summer, late summer is kinda nice.  The transitioning weather allows for a refresh on the looks.  Can work in new fall trends, colors and staples, all while still embracing the last bits of summer.

What I'm wearing for late summer.

What I’m wearing for late summer.

Fall Trend:  Bell Sleeves.  Late Summer Wear Now: Cropped Sleeve in Light Flowy Fabric.

Bell Sleeves For Wear Now Wear Later

Bell Sleeves For Wear Now Wear Later

Statement sleeves are not only a hot summer trend but a cool fall one as well.  So what’s better than a blouse that works for both!?  This Lace Trim Bell Sleeve Blouse from Avon has a cropped sleeve making it perfect for transitioning weather and looks.  Choosing a fall trend in a lightweight fabric flowy fabric allows you more wear year round out of it.  Plus, the peep of lace at the top lightens it up too.

Avon Lace Trim Bell Sleeve Blouse

Fall Trend:  Out Of The Ordinary Baubles.  Late Summer Wear Now:  Gold Chain Details.

Avon Pink Hope Ribbon Power Necklace

Avon Pink Hope Ribbon Power Necklace and mark. Gleam With Pride Ring

A big trend in fall jewelry is out of the ordinary necklaces.  Your standard run of the mill statement necklace is not going to cut it, you need something legit.  “How ’bout some gold bracelets” or gold necklace if you will… thick gold chains and a unique pendant drop allow this necklace to stand out from the crowd.  Additionally, the bright gold is a perfect late summer metal, but this would look equally as chic worn with a simple black turtleneck or your favorite plaid top come fall.  The Avon Pink Hope Ribbon Power Necklace is part of the Breast Cancer Shop For The Greater Goods Shop at my eBoutique.  What makes it even more unique than it’s look, is that 20% of the proceeds go to support the Breast Cancer Crusade, which is in style year round!

Embrace Big Gold Chains

Embrace Big Gold Chains

Fall Color:  Jewel Tones.  Late Summer Wear Now:  Amethyst Blouse.

Avon Lace Trim Bell Sleeve Blouse

Avon Lace Trim Bell Sleeve Blouse

By wearing brighter jewel tone now, like amethyst, vs a deep tone, like plum, allows you to keep your look more late summer.  I love this Lace Trim Bell Sleeve Blouse from Avon for the perfect wear now jewel toned shade.

Jewel Tones Now and Later

Jewel Tones Now and Later

Fall Staple:  Jeans.  Late Summer Wear Now:  White Jeans.

White Deconstructed Jeans for Late Summer

White Deconstructed Jeans for Late Summer

It was a brisk mid 80’s so I was able to wear pants… like the first time since May.  These destructed white jeans from mark. are finally seeing some wear!  White jeans are the perfect way to create a late summer look, they brighten up those fall trends and colors.  Come later in the season, pair this exact look with your dark denim and boots for a true fall look.

Fall Staple:  Suede.  Late Summer Wear Now:  Pops Of Suede.

Avon Leather and Suede Whipstitch Tote

Avon Leather and Suede Whipstitch Tote

Pop in some suede during late summer.  I’m wearing a suede fringed sandal from Steve Madden, and switched to my fall bag, a leather tote with suede pieced in.  The sandals are from last year but the tote is the new Avon Leather and Suede Whipstitch Tote.

Pops Of Suede For Late Summer

This is just one of those easy outfits for a lot of different occasions.  You can tweak it depending on what you got going on and as that true fall weather creeps in, but overall the perfect take on late summer.  You can shop my entire look at http://www.youravon.com/aliciahessinger.  Be sure to take advantage of the newest A Box for only $10 with a $40 purchase!  And yes, I probably should of ironed my shirt instead of just pulling it out of my suitcase after a week.  Life, man, life.
