How We Wore It // Holiday Plaid (& Leopard)

I have been so bad about posting lately!!! Two fashion posts in a row, and this is a beauty blog? I have been out of town for the last couple of weeks so forgive my neglect! I got to join in on this month’s “How We Wore It” post again which is so fun! Here is the inspo for this month’s look from Because Shanna Said So:
I wanted to incorporate plaid so bad in this post, it was definitely a focal point in the inspo photo for this month…..and I even have a couple plaid shirts but I just barely flew back into town from Austin, both shirts were dirty, didn’t have enough time to wash them and I couldn’t put an outfit together for the life of me! My husband even came home during his break to take these pictures because that was the only way this was happening between my eyelash clients! For those who aren’t familiar, this post is all about using what’s already in your closet to put your look together so it can be challenging at times but that’s what makes it so fun. I love seeing how other people put their looks together and what they take from the original photo.
I am a leopard print fanatic. I have toned it down a bit the last year but I still own tons of it so I decided to incorporate that into my look. I also was really looking for an excuse to wear this super cozy blanket scarf from Nordstrom because, well, it’s the bomb diggity and I will forever love my sister in law for getting it for me.

I stuck with the other details in the outfit I noticed like the scarf, a dress/skirt, tights and ankle booties. I love turtle neck dresses and have been wearing this one like crazy! It’s so soft and comfy I would totally sleep in it if I could get away with it. For accessories I chose a fringe clutch and gold hoops…I have become obsessed with hoop earrings lately…what is happening?!? I also paired it with my nasty yellow roots. HAHA! Kidding….but honestly…cannot wait to get that fixed it’s driving me up the wall.

And last but certainly not least….lipstick. If you have read any of my other posts you know I love a nice bold lip. When I think holiday, I think of a rich ruby red but I love how plum colors look with leopard print and grey so I chose this color instead! It’s the Maybelline color blur matte lipstick in the shade “Plum Perfect.”
