This season I discovered chenille sweaters and lets just say, I’ve become obsessed! Chenille is a soft, tufted type of material. If fuzziness is what you want in a sweater but can’t afford cashmere, than chenille will be your new best friend.

Warm & Cozy

Chenille sweaters are soft and warm making them perfect for the upcoming cold weather months. Above, I have linked a two different styles of chenille sweaters, one of which is currently 40% off making it less than $50! This would be a great Christmas gift for any girl on your list that I’m sure they will love!

Studded Details

Rather than jeans or pants, I decided to style this look with a mini skirt to give this ensemble some sophistication and class. This smooth, sueded fabric mini skirt has a snap-button front detail that is sure to make it a standout!

To better showcase this skirts studded button down detail, I decided to half tuck the chenille sweater.

Half Tuck Technique

The half tuck look is like a fashionable mullet. Think about it as business in the front and a party in the back.

To perform the half tuck, pinch a small section of fabric at the bottom of your top, either in the center or halfway between your hip bone and navel. With that small piece of fabric in hand, push it down into the waistband of your bottoms.

To finish this style, pull the sides down gently so they fall down over the waistband giving you a cool, relaxed and effortless look.

Lastly, no outfit is complete until accessories are added.

Accessories

To finish this look, I wore a pair of bohemian inspired tassel chandelier drop stud earrings. The rich navy color of the mini skirt tied these tassel earring into the outfit perfectly. It’s as if they were made for each other.

TOMS TAUPE SUEDE DESERT WEDGES


Hey y’all and happy Monday! Sorry I have been missing in action over the past week. I traveled to St. Louis for a meeting and pulled a couple of overtime shifts at work.

With the holiday season literally around the corner, I’ll be definitely be needing any extra cash for presents and the foreseen Black Friday and Cyber Monday sales.

Today, I’m going to keep this post short and sweet. Vests are one of my favorite cold weather accessory. I found this fuzzy sherpa vest at Target.

Styling & Detail

It is available in cream and black. This vest is warm and versatile. I promise you, it will quickly become a staple in your wardrobe. This vest has a gold zipper in the front that adds a touch of shine and elegance.

Under this vest, I wore a basic white fitted long sleeve crew neck shirt, also from Target. Target is the best place to get affordable fitted shirts. These shirts come in a variety of colors and are the epitome of comfort.

They are ideal to wear under vests and cardigans. Plus, they are priced at only $10! I swear, I have one in almost every color.

Accessories

For jewelry, I kept it simple and styled this vest with a long strand necklace that has a cream bead and gold tassel detail.

This necklace is from Nest Uncommon Goods, a local boutique in Bowling Green, Kentucky. Gold accessories are great to wear with this vest because they coordinate perfectly with the gold zipper detail.

Pairings

Lastly, I tied this outfit together with a pair of camo patterned jeans. Camo is a trending pattern right now and can be styled with a multitude of colors.

Because camo is such a loud and bold pattern, I like to style it with plain solid color tops, typically in the neutral colored family.

These camo jeans are from Old Navy. I know I have discussed Old Navy jeans in the past but I seriously cannot express how amazing they are!

These particular jeans are a mid-rise style that sit below the waist and are fitted through the hip and thigh. The raw edged fabric around the ankle adds an edgy and industrial feel.

Thanks for stopping by this Monday edition of Flights and Fashion. Stay tuned later this week for some Thanksgiving outfit ideas!
