I loved the Harvest Moon Poncho in Maize so much I bought it in Ivory as well. Of the three remaining colors, I knew the Ivory would pair well with what’s currently in my closet. The Silk Sleeveless Blouse is one of the best and most favorite tops J Crew has offered. I would continue to buy these every season in the various colors offered, if that were to happen. They layer so well under cardigans and sweaters. I have all but one color and wear them often. I’ve had the original Origami Mini Skirt in Houndstooth (similar) for a few years now. I also have the other two colors as well (Jacquard, Peony). This ran small and I ended up sizing to a 10.

Along with my Corso Como Samual Boots, I added all Madewell jewelry to complete the look.

I’m trying to stay chic and cozy through the season, while also wearing something new or that I haven’t worn in a while.

I have a house-warming party this evening and another Christmas party on Saturday so there will be more Que Bella outfits to come next week.

Have a Great Day!

I wanted to share my outfit from my neighborhood’s Christmas Party. As a board member, I’m expected to attend. Most everyone usually dresses in Christmas attire – red, green, Christmas sweaters, etc. I try to wear something fun when I attend Holiday and Christmas parties, especially if it’s an item that’s hard to style or is just meant for a party. The Origami Skirt in Elephant Parade is a great example of a unique party skirt. 
I originally had decided on a Navy Cashmere Tee but chose Black at the last minute instead. I still can’t tell if the background of the skirt is navy or black, not that I wanted to match it. I stuck to gold jewelry but had a little trouble finding shoes to wear with the skirt. I thought about my Bronson Booties but eventually went with a pop of red. 
I have two more parties this weekend, with one being pretty casual and the other not so I may wear this skirt again to one of those. I could probably casual this up in flat boots or black flats in general along with a Chambray shirt. 
What do you think? How else would you style this skirt?

Not only can I not believe it’s December but that 2014 is almost over. I have just a few more gifts to wrap as well as decorate and put up the tree. Most stores last week had their Black Friday offerings early so I was able to grab a few items from Madewell last Monday.

~ Gemscape Layering Necklace ~

I am really into wearing layering necklaces right now. And if those necklaces are already layered for me, it’s even better. I like the rock and fringe mix of the Gemscape Layering Necklace. There are 3 jump rings to adjust the length as needed. 

~ Ensign Necklace ~

I would love to get the Ensign Necklace engraved with my initials. For now the plain flat surface will work, especially when layered with the Gemscape Necklace. This is one length, with no additional jump rings for adjusting.

~ Curvature Cuff Bracelet ~

I love the look of the Curvature Cuff Bracelet and spent about 15 minutes trying to find another bracelet that would be the best match with it. I settled on the Studded Rail Cuff Bracelet.

~ Triangle Ponytail Clip ~

I find it difficult to find cute clips or ponytail holders that I like. If I am going to be lazy and put my hair up I want to look cute doing it. These ponytail clips are perfect and so far, seem to hold all my hair without issue. I think there might be some issue if you have thinner hair, at least with the Triangle Ponytail Clip

I love these pieces as well.

In-Store, there was 25% off jewelry and the Early Black Friday promo of 25% off was stacked on top of it.
