mixing textures

December 30, 2015


Shop the Post: TOP Thermal Long Sleeve (sold out, VERY similar here) // JEANS Dark Washed Denim Jeans // SHOES Leather Booties // PURSE Slouchy Tote (this holds so much stuff!!!) // BRALETTE White Lace Halter Bralette // NECKLACE Layered Gold Necklace // BRACELET Gold Hook Bangle // EARRINGS Pearl Studs

We are so close to New Years Eve! Woot woot! I am looking forward to the anticipation that 2016 holds. I have a feeling it will be a great year :)

I love this outfit because it shows that you CAN mix different textures into a single look. From lace, to leather, to thermal, the possibilities are endless. Most importantly, I wanted to give you the "inside scoop" on my favorite Christmas present: this black reversible tote. I have been wanting to add a tote to my purse collection, and I love this one so much. It is the perfect tote size {yup, that is totally a thing!} and I love that it is reversible. It also will be great when I start student-teaching come Fall 2016.

Also, I finally added this lace bralette to my wardrobe. Honestly, everybody and their mom has this in their closet...and I finally jumped on the bandwagon. Even though this is more of a summer-y piece, it can still be incorporated into a winter look if done correctly! I'm surprised by how comfortable it is!

This is the outfit I wore while looking at Christmas lights with my family! I did pair it with a cozy jacket as well :) 


I had a delicious Mexican food birthday lunch with my friends. This flan was AH-MAZING! 


This was the BEST dress to wear on my birthday. It was fun, flirty, and colorful...the best birthday outfit!


I love this beautiful combination of this pink watch and pink bracelet!


I. Can't. Stop. Wearing. These. Jeans.


Black booties? They are my "go-to" staple.  


This is such a comfortable outfit to wear while attending classes!
Striped Long Sleeve Shirt // Jeans (the dark washed ones!) // Watch // Small Gold Necklace // Black Flats (these are so comfortable!) 


Isn't this the cutest coffee cup ever?!

 My Outfit Details: SHIRT Striped Long Sleeve (on sale, less then $10!) // Jeans Boyfriend Jeans // SCARF Cozy Black and White Scarf (old, similar linked) // SHOES Brown Booties // PURSE Beige Crossbody Purse // NECKLACE Endless Knot Gold Necklace // EARRINGS Pearl Studs // BRACELET Red and Gold Cuff Bracelet

Merry Christmas! :) I appreciate each and every one of you and I am so blessed to have a wonderful and supportive community surrounding The Teacup of Style. 

For Christmas day, I usually like to keep my outfit simple and comfortable since my family and I spend most of the day sitting around relaxing, enjoying each others company, and eating lots and lots of food... This striped top is super comfortable and I've been wearing it at least once a week because of how comfortable and festive it is! Plus, it is currently on sale for less then $10! I will most likely be wearing it again once I (of if I decide to) change out of my pajamas! 

And yes, I'm officially addicted to these boyfriend jeans. They feel like pajamas--which is something that I have never been able to say about any pair of jeans I have owned before. 

My boyfriend recently surprised me with a new bracelet from my favorite jewelry designer, Kendra Scott. {He's a keeper!} It has been a perfect addition to almost every outfit I have worn during this holiday season. 

I'm wishing each and every one of you a wonderful Christmas day!
Happy Birthday Jesus :)

 My Outfit Details: SWEATER Cozy White Knit Sweater (sold out, similar linked) // JEANS Boyfriend Jeans // SHOES Brown Booties // PURSE Small Beige Crossbody Bag // EARRINGS Pearl Studs // WATCH Pink Kate Spade Watch // BRACELET Pink & Gold Bracelet

After three grueling weeks of final exams, essays, projects, lots of coffee, and lack of sleep... I am officially back to bring you a new outfit post and am back to my normal posting schedule {Monday, Wednesday, Friday}!

Winter whites and subtle pops of color are my favorite winter combo! I love how effortlessly a winter knit sweater pairs with bright pink accents. During these colder months, I find it best to incorporate my "pops" of colors in small increments. For example, I added just a bubbly pink watch and a unique pink bracelet. As a result, I still fell comfortably into the "winter appropriate" outfit category.

Fun fact, these are also my first official pair of boyfriend jeans! {Can I get a: "Woot! Woot!} They honestly fit like a gem! If you're like me, and have struggled with finding a pair of boyfriend jeans that didn't make you feel too boxy, and for lack of a better term, un-curvy. I would suggest giving this pair a shot! They're worth the try.

striped holidays

My Outfit Details: DRESS Striped Cowlneck Dress // JACKET Light Washed Jean Jacket (old, similar linked) // PURSE Black Crossbody Purse (available in wallet version here) // SHOES  Black Wedge Booties (old, similar linked) // NECKLACES Long Beaded Necklace & Small Silver Cross Necklace // EARRINGS Pearl Studs // BRACELETS Initial Bracelet & Anchor Bracelet & Birthstone Bracelet  // WATCH 'Michele' Silver Deco Watch

This striped cowlneck dress is AMAZING. I wore it to our family's annual Thanksgiving feast...Boy, was I glad I did! It is the perfect dress to hide any holiday food-baby. Plus, I can't even begin to tell you how comfortable this piece of clothing is. It literally feels like a pair of yoga pants and a fuzzy sweater all wrapped up into one. Also, the tulip hemline provides the perfect silhouette for any type of occasion: from running errands to family events. 

Black wedged booties are also the perfect winter shoe. They look so cute with dresses, jeans, and even leggings! Plus, the wedged heel is actually super practical for walking to class or running around shopping for Christmas presents!

Sadly, I have come down with a nasty bug that left me glued to my bed for a majority of my Tuesday. I even slept sixteen hours Monday night...Your prayers are definitely welcomed!

Again, thank you for stopping by. I appreciate you oh so very much :)
