16 Hour Style

In the fashion + blog world, the term “16 Hour Style” has been trending quite a bit, and for good reason – most women out there are juggling home, work, fam, and friends like super heroes, and need an outfit that can step up and keep up. Now that the holiday season is upon us, outfits that can go the distance from the wee work hours of the am, to the evening holiday mixer, or drinky-poo with friends at night are pretty essential – there just isn’t time to go home (or find a phone booth 😉 and change! And planning and packing a new outfit ahead of time, and hauling it around is a major headache. For those days/nights it’s a good rule of thumb to keep it classic and simple, with a sassy-glam kick in the accessory + makeup department. I love a good black and white office-appropriate number; add some party-metallic-gold sparkle, and fun, holiday-red pumps + lips, and that style recipe will rock it for ya all day and night. Promise.

Enter: black and white plaid wool skirt, gingham shirt (love mixing prints!), leather-front sweater, and red-bow pumps (again – love ’em).
