What To Wear: Potluck

What To Wear: Potluck

What To Wear: Potluck

With the ultimate holiday meal tomorrow, today let’s look at what to wear to a potluck!  I collaborated with Erica Gerelmann on two looks that will work for your next potluck this holiday season.

Alicia’s Look:

Stress Free Look for a Potluck

Stress Free Look for a Potluck

A potluck is all about being stress free and your looks should be the same.  You want to be comfortable to sit, eat and socialize in but still a little festive because, well, it’s an excuse to be!  Usually I would find any reason to wear red during the holidays but this year I’m all about icy shades of blue, silver and grey!  A stress free sweatshirt dress, statement necklace, statement boots and topped off with a statement lip takes casual potluck to something special while remaining festive and fun!

Erica's Casual Holiday Potluck Look

Erica’s Casual Holiday Potluck Look

The holidays are here and in my family, we keep things simple and casual. We gather at someone’s house and everyone brings a covered dish for a big potluck dinner.  When deciding what to wear, I leave the dress and shapewear at home and break out a pair of “fat pants” and a roomy shirt. I know I’ll eat too much! This outfit is definitely something I would wear to my family’s holiday party. I wanted to give this look the red and green Christmas feel without being too cheesy and there is no better time to break out the sparkly accessories then at a holiday party!

Julep Ebony – Halo

This week I’m wearing a black halo polish from Julep called Ebony. Easy and simple but still kind of theme’s out my week.  Halo’s are really hard to capture when it is cloudy out, but believe me this is one awesome polish, PERFECT for Halloween.

I do have a Halloween party this Friday so for my weekend through actual Halloween I’m going to wear these glow-in-the-dark nail wraps from Jamberry called Eye See You. These adorable creepy-cute monster eyes are a little different for Halloween. The glow-in-the-dark feature will be super fun for Halloween.

Cheers!  Fall festivities are in full swing which means I’m taking any reason to theme out everything down to my nails!  Every fall my company does an internal Oktoberfest and I take it as an excuse to a great fall mani, this year is no exception.

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.

If you are attending an Oktoberfest I suggest doing a fun fall mani!  You can check out my past ones here and here.  If you’re hosting one here’s some inspo for you from ours from last year!

Wear And Share Wednesday: My Most Asked About Jewelry Set

Avon Bravo Jewelry Collection

Avon Bravo Jewelry Collection

Lately I’ve been reaching for the same jewelry everyday, call it lazy or I call it, goes – with – everything.  I can’t tell you how many compliments and questions I’ve received on it so I thought I might as well wear and share!  First up is this Avon Bravo Jewelry Collection, what I seem to be wearing non-stop.  I think it’s because it goes with literally everything I wear, is silver and gold toned and bit fall with the feathers.   In this collection you can get the long necklace, bracelet, earrings and/or ring (not pictured) between $14.99 and $19.99 the price point is spot on.

Avon Bravo Necklace, Earrings and wrap bracelet

Next up is what I get complimented the most on, the Avon Calypso Sunrise Collection.  This set features a faux green geode look in a long necklace, bracelet and a colored stone ring (not pictured) at $19.99.  You would think this would be more for summer wear than fall, but paired with fall tones like camel, army green, taupe, sage, navy, etc this set really works for fall.  I first saw this paired against our Avon Versatile Faux Wrap Dress which is a mushroom color and I thought, WOW how stunning is that, a must have for fall!

Last but not least is the Fancy Animal Collection.  If you like a little personality into your jewelry then you can appreciate the fun in these guys.  This collection features what is obviously animals who are fancy in a bracelet, ring and watch in elephant, cheetah and leopard ($14.99 – $19.99).  I picked up 2 of the bracelets in leopard and cheetah, mainly because I already had this ring and I like the little bit o’ 90’s look to it.  These look really cute with just a simple jeans, tee, faux leather jacket and heels look.

Copper Glam Accent Nail

The name of this Jamberry wrap is called Autumn Romance and I don’t think it could be any more perfect for a fall wedding guest mani.  Accent it with Copper Glam wrap for just a touch of glam.  The wedding was so stunning, especially these centerpieces as my mani backdrop 🙂   You can recreate my look with these new fall wraps from Jamberry.  You can shop them here:  https://aliciahessingerdias.jamberry.com

Happy First Day Of Fall!

Happy First Day Of Fall!

Happy first day of fall!  Which it is unusually cold today with only a high of 75!!!  #californiaproblems   However, for me, that means I can wear pants, ankle pants, but still pants.  So today I have for you a little pants outfit with the perfect fall tote, well really the any time of year tote!  The mark. Dragon Around Tote is the must have work to weekend bag!

The mark. Dragon Around Tote is a camel, large tote bag with two slip pockets and a zippered pocket.  It’s your standard tote but with a classic luxe look.  Really could be mistaken for a much higher end version but at an affordable price.  I’ve been wanting a really good one from a major lux brand but after getting this mark. one I feel much better that I didn’t spend way beyond my means.

Work to weekend, this bag has you covered.  It’s so simple it will go with everything and large enough to hold everything. I use it to tote all my crap; files, lunch, change of shoes, things I need to mail, snacks, Harry Potter, a sweatshirt, more snacks, magazines for lunch time reading, stuff from work I’ve been meaning to bring home, stuff from home I’ve been meaning to bring to work… you get the idea.  Pretty much your life needs a bag like this.

Work Outfit with Express and White House Black Market

Work Outfit with Express and White House Black Market

For my work outfit I paired a pair of sailor blue ankle pants from White House Black Market with an off the shoulder top from Express.  The blue and white pairing works exceptionally well with the camel tote bag.  I wore blue and white jewelry from Avon and grey heels from Shoedazzle.  For added details I could NOT resist this adorable bag charm (see my bag charm post here).  It’s just perfect for fall and winter and adds a smile to my face every time I glance at it.

Fall is kind of a perfect time to travel.  You can get better rates since it’s the off season with school back in session and you still have excellent weather.  Even if it’s just a weekend getaway, you know, for like your upcoming anniversary or something ;)… or even a day trip!  Regardless, I have the perfect outfit for sitting comfortably while traveling and looking chic while out and about with the mark. Sweat Equity Dress.

The mark. Sweat Equity Dress is a sweatshirt dress in a deep navy with houndstooth embossed pattern.  What I absolutely adore about this dress is it’s comfortable, so soft and easy to wear.  It’s basically my current favorite fall item!

Pure Comfort For Traveling

I paired the mark. Sweat Equity dress with the mark. Buckled In Tote.  This bag is your perfect travel companion.  It’s not too big to be a normal purse but big enough to tote all those extras you bring traveling, like your aviators…
