ATLANTIC-PACIFIC HOLIDAY // MIX AND MATCH

THE HOLIDAY COLLECTION IS NOW LIVE! You can shop it all on Nordstrom.com here. Today I am highlighting a few different ways to mix and match the newest pieces – from head-to-toe holiday party, paired back to denim, and even cozy and chic with sneakers. Scroll down to discover ten new styled looks for the holiday season!

MIXED METALS //

I have always been a fan of mixing gold and silver and with so many pieces from holiday available in metallic hues, it is such a fun way to experiment for the season! You can mix this top, skirt, and belt (all available in gold and silver), or combine all gold or all silver pieces for a head-to-toe monochromatic look! This top also looks amazing without a belt back to these more casual bottoms, with sneakers or a pair of simple heels.


BOLD JEWEL TONES //

While I am not typically a denim lady, I am loving this sweater and this blazer paired back to cropped kick flare jeans. Featuring mixed metal sequins, colorful stripes, and hits of lurex for shine, this sweater (also available in a grey option) has just the right amount of holiday feel. I also love the use of green, pink, and red that allows you to mix and match back to other jewel toned hues!


RED TO TOE //

I have been wearing this sequin top with these sequin pants and this coat for a full sequin look, but it is also a match made in heaven paired with this organza skirt from the fall collection and these new tulle heels! If you really want the whole look, just add this heart-shaped faux fur bag for a truly holiday red-y look.


STRIPE IT RICH //

While some don’t agree that you can mix navy with black, when it comes to neutrals, I am always a fan of mixing it up! This striped sweater from holiday is created from my all time favorite yarn and also has the most adorable, functioning velvet bow at the back of the neck! I adore this sweater paired with these navy faux leather leggings (also available in black and brown) from the NYC capsule collection and this pieced faux fur jacket!


PINK AND PLAID //

I love a pink with plaid combo (as seen here) so these holiday pink tights are pure perfection back to this skirt and and this blazer. If you are on the hunt for a sweater to layer let me recommend this one! And P.S. –  if you want to really throw a plaid party, let me present to you these shoes and these shoes!


BIRDS OF A FEATHER //

Fringe and feathers have never paired better! This gold dot skirt is made from an incredible fil coupé fabric and simply dazzles (there is a matching top too!). This tweed jacket, also from the holiday collection, features gold buttons and a hint of gold in the tweed fabric, plus a fun feather fringe. Pair both back to these black patent oxfords for a perfect chic yet comfortable holiday party look!


 

PARTY IN PURPLE //

If you love all of the shimmer and shine you will love these pieces! This lurex striped sweater was designed to go back to this full, structured midi skirt for more of an untraditional holiday color palette look. I love colored tights and the holiday collection wouldn’t be complete without some bold, bright stockings like this fun purple pair!

 


 

STAR OF THE NIGHT //

While I don’t like to play favorites, the star pieces in the collection are way at the top of my list (you can shop the star dress here, star bag here, star shoes here, star stockings here, and star skirt here). With this look I am mixing and matching it up with a star top coat, stripe and pearl sweater, and star skirt. If stars aren’t your thing, there are quite a few pearl pieces in the collection as well! 🙂


PARTY ON TOP //

What ANOTHER denim look?! I know, sometimes I even surprise myself. We have two adorable peplum tops in the holiday collection (the tinsel bow top above and another option) and while I typically wear them back to a full skirt for a LEWK, they also look great back to cropped denim and a little party shoe.

 


STAR-TED OFF CASUALLY //

This star sweater from the collection is by far the most casual piece in the line- done in an ultra soft yarn with an oversized, slightly cropped fit. This piece is an off-duty must have. I am styling here with a pair of chic sneaks and faux leather pants!

THE FIVE BEAUTY PRODUCTS I AM LOVING RIGHT NOW

While I don’t consider myself a beauty guru, I am all about sharing products that I have used and loved. Today I am highlighting five new-to-me products I am recommending and will absolutely be purchasing again. If you want to see more beauty content you can find my make up routine here, how I create my sleek bun here, my summer beauty essentials here, and last but not least, my travel beauty must haves here.

CHARLOTTE TILBURY MAGIC NIGHT CREAM //

If you happened to see my everyday make up routine here you know I am a huge – like HUGE – fan of all things Charlotte Tilbury. I’ve been using the Magic Cream as my daily moisturizer for years. I have normal skin with a slightly oily T-Zone and I tend to find thicker, non gel moisturizers work best for me. When a friend was raving about the Magic Night Cream I decided to give it a try and have found it to be the perfect balance for my nightly skincare routine. The Magic Night Cream does have a slightly different texture than the Magic Cream that wouldn’t work for my daytime needs when applying makeup, but is the perfect nightly re-set for my skin. And, if you are as big of a Charlotte Tilbury fan as I am, this gift box is a great value right now!

JO MALONE BODY CREAM //

Jo Malone continues to be one of my favorite brands when it comes to all things scents. I recently started using this Myrrh & Tonka cream and love the rich, almond/vanilla scent that smells like the Holiday season, without being obvious or overbearing. The cream itself is ultra thick and perfect as we all venture into the dreaded #dryskinseason. This is for sure to be a new staple for me.

MOROCCANOIL GLIMMER SHINE // 

I wear my hair in a low, sleek bun 99.9% of the time these days. I get the ultra smooth effect by using this product and this brush, but just recently started using glimmer shine to add just an extra touch of shine and to help with flyaways, particularly as my hair becomes more brittle and unruly going into cooler temps. This glimmer shine oil has been the perfect finishing touch combined with a spritz of hairspray! If you want to see my full sleek bun tutorial, click here.

DR DENNIS GROSS LIQUID PEEL // 

I have trusted Dr. Dennis Gross products ever since I fell in love with these glow pads and these pads. I recently purchased this at home peel, and after using them twice a week, I’ve noticed that my skin is appearing much smoother and more even! Consider these added to my weekly routine.

URBAN DECAY SETTING POWDER //

In the past I have raved about the Urban Decay setting mist, which I still love, but recently I switched over to the setting powder and have been even more impressed with the results. While I still recommend the spray, the powder has been great on the more oily regions of my face and does a great job of muting my highlighter to help achieve the perfect glow.
