Denim is hotter than ever this season! Today’s episode of The Art of Style is dedicated to our never-ending love of denim and ways to incorporate the timeless denim jacket into casual and dressy looks.
Our 'My Favorites' list is always brimming with so much awesomeness; we just have to share some of it with you!
BB Dakota “Brice” Blazer – The perfect dressy cardigan blazer to wear over everything—from jeans and a simple tee to that little black dress for the holidays!
Steve Madden “Artist” Pumps – Instantly take your night-out looks to a fancier level with the addition of these party heels in festive silver.
It never fails; every year you get invited to an Ugly Christmas Sweater party and you end up frantically browsing every thrift store within a ten-mile radius only to come out empty handed. Well, this year, save yourself the hunt and check out tipsy elves®!
This collection of humorous and yes, dare we say ugly Christmas sweaters (and jumpsuits and dresses…) are the perfect mix of traditional holiday style and modern humor. If a tacky holiday pullover is on your list this season, tipsy elves has you covered!
One of our favorite ways to give the classic knit sweater a more rough-around-the-edges feel is to pair it with distressed jeans. Today’s street style inspiration does a fantastic job of taking an otherwise preppy cream-colored sweater into that cool and laidback territory.
Check out our version of this easy-to-wear look below:

Happy Well-Rounded Wednesday!
I grew up in Southwestern Pennsylvania, where this time of year meant 3 things:
- Football Friday Nights- Texas may think they have the market cornered on high school football fandom, but I think real fans fight frostbite to watch their team... when the snow stops blowing emough that you can actually SEE the field from the stands.
- Harvest Festivals- Apple cider, pear cider, peaches fresh off the tree, candied apples, and apple goodies galore, hay rides, corn mazes, and hot cider by a bonfire with your friends. Who can ask for anything more?
- Scuffing my feet through huge piles of leaves in friend’s yards or on the paths in the park (but not out in the woods, because that’s where everyone was hunting!)
These days, I make my home in Las Vegas, where there are still Apple Festivals (I’ve discovered apple donuts out here- BEST THING EVER!), Football Friday Nights, and with a bit of a drive to Mt. Charleston, leaves to play in with my kids.
This time of year also means new fall and winter gear. Now, every curvy girl knows that finding outerwear can be a real challenge- not only does it have to keep us warm, it also has to look cute, have a generous cut in the sleeve to allow for thicker arms covered by cozy sweaters, but it has to do all of this while NOT making a girl look like the Stay-Puft Marshmallow Woman.
Lucky for me, I’ve found some AMAZING pieces below that all do just that. So today, I share them with you! Have a great week!
