can you believe we are in countdown mode? that’s right. it’s t minus 17 days until Christmas. and, gulp, t minus 23 days until we ring in the new year. are you ready? is your shopping finished? how are you celebrating this year? yesterday, i shared a glam outfit that’s perfect for the holidays whether you celebrate at home or venture out. today’s post is in that same vein. and do i have the perfect pair of pants for you? yes, they’re faux leather pants that can be dressed up or down. what’s better than a cozy yet chic outfit? nuthin’!
y’all know my love for Nordstrom. the retailer extraordinaire. and i’m a big fan of their in-house brand Halogen, which is affordable and always has one eye on the trends like these amazing faux leather pants that fit like a dream and have an elastic waist. now that’s a win/win any time of year.
the first ootd is an outfit after my own heart. it’s monochromatic but i threw in a contrasting brown belt to add texture and definition. if you want to skip the belt altogether and keep the black column from head to toe, the choice is yours. the cashmere turtleneck is from Halogen. this is my third Halogen cashmere turtleneck purchase. i also have grey and camel. but i couldn’t resist adding black. this turtleneck is lightweight yet warm and is wonderfully cozy. it does run a tad large, so size down for a slimmer fit.
say hello to my new favorite faux leather pants. love, love, love the comfortable fit. the cut is comfortable and flattering, and the cuff detail adds that little extra something. the fit is TTS (i’m wearing size medium), and it comes in black, tan, and pink.
let’s shift gears to New Year’s Eve and add a little glam to these faux leather pants. a simple blouse with shimmers of metallic gold will do the trick (it also comes in silver). the smocked sleeves give a feminine touch. and i couldn’t resist adding gold metallic ballet slippers (sold out, similar here) and a gold belt (old, similar here) for a festive vibe.
a big thank you to Nordstrom for this sponsored post. and thank you, lovely readers, for supporting the brands that allow me to bring you fresh ideas.
