Nailed It: Jamberry Night Sky

20180302_172151.jpg

Mani Monday and I finally feel human again. I had bare nails for weeks, so finally getting a pedi and busting out a Jamberry wrap on the mani, all is right in the world once again!

I felt like doing nail wraps and these Night Sky wraps were calling my name! Sparkly mixed mani in cool icy tones, sign me up!

We have been having a cold spell in Nor Cal so these icy tones are oh so needed. And so is this scarf that’s my back drop. Its actually the signature print from the mark. Rebel Ice collection. Fun fact: If you bought the bath and body line its the print on the packaging!

I also just got these sterling silver rings in from Avon, and thought the complimented the wraps so well! Yes, Avon does have a line of fine jewelry, yes these rings are new and available, yes they include genuine stones, and yes you need them! The fine jewelry also starts at a size 5! I am wearing the Classic Peak Band (sale price $16.99) stacked with the Blue Topaz with Cluster Halo ring (sale price $34.99).

You can shop my rings and check out Avon’s fine jewelry new arrivals at my eBoutique. Message me if your interested in Jamberry nail wraps! I’m always looking for someone to go halfsies 😉

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.

Peal Hats and Statement Earrings

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.

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).

APRÈS SKI PART DEUX

With all the winter weather, snow days and cold its time to embrace the cozy.  Cozy with a little luxe, that’s what apres ski is all about.  You might recall my last inspo post from last January (see here) but this time around I’m back with more!  Even if a luxe winter weekend isn’t in your plans you can at least dress like it is!  Here are some things to embrace for that apres ski life:

Fur:

Vests:

Ski Prints:

Cozy Knits:

I have an upcoming weekend getaway to Tahoe at the end of the month so I’ll be planning on how to apply this apres ski inspo to some weekend wear!  See more of my pinsperation at http://www.pinterest.com/ach167/apresski

Christmas Day OOTD!  Nothing I love more than a good holiday tradition, which is why Erica’s Fashion and Beauty and I are having a pajama party!  If your pj’s ever count as an OOTD Christmas Eve/Day is it, and with some really cute options from Avon this year there’s no reason not to refresh your lounge gear.

When we were little my brother and I planned our jammies for our favorite day and now I kinda still do that.  I have a stash of holiday jammies in red and green I pull out every year but when I saw this Winter Soft collection from Avon in soft shades I knew it was time to add something different to the collection.  I went for the Winter Soft Solid Knit PJ Pants in the soft lavender color.  I thought they would be something that I could wear year round with how soft and lightweight they are, but for the holiday’s I’ll pair them with an extra soft snowflake sweater and some new Avon slippers. Plus I just love the big satin bow tie!

I was so excited to see these Avon Winter Soft Memory Foam Bootie slippers in grey (also come in white and pink).  My Muk Luks died this year and I needed to replace, and these Avon booties did not disappoint!  The memory foam is so comfortable.  They were a little tight when you first put them on but once the foam shapes to your foot you’re golden!  I can not get over how comfy they are, they go from baking cookies to lounging watching Christmas movies on the couch, one of my favorite recent items, perfect for a chilly winter day.

The Winter Soft collection from Avon all starts with the seasonal favorite Winter Soft bath and body collection but this year also features a range of products in soft shades from these pj’s and slippers to this gorgeous blue necklace to stunning home goods, games, blankets and more!  They all beautifully pair together to create a really stunning gifts.  I think pairing the pj’s and slippers with a robe and bath and body set would be magical.  Or how about the beautiful throw blanket, 7-in1 Game board, and the set of mugs for a winter night in!  Either way I’m ready for my holiday traditions in my new Wintersoft pj’s!

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!

Trending Tuesday: Après Ski

If the world of alicia was the internet #apresski would totally be trending.  Now that the glitz and glam of the holidays are over the winter weather definitely has me thinking all things cozy.  I’ve been obsessing over all things suitable for a chic winter weekend.  Think cozy layers with a crisp aesthetic, functional pieces with fab details in colors of the winter sky and scene.

Apres Ski Color Inspo

Après Ski Color Inspo

The Color Pallet:  black, white, icy blues and grays make for a simplistic January pallet.  Pops of prints in fair isle, cable knit textures and even leopard look chic paired with them.

Cozy Layers:  Layer on the cozy with sweaters, knits and vests.  Layered looks achieve a level of chic a regular sweater by itself doesn’t achieve, and functionally way warmer!

Crisp Aesthetic and Cozy Textures: Maybe it’s because of the clean slate we get with the new year or that crisp clean winter air but monochromatic looks achieve a crisp aesthetic while adding in the right textures achieve that après ski chic.
