Hometown Holiday Outfit Recap


You guys know how to make a girl feel all sorts of pretty! I posted this picture on my Facebook and Instagram and y’all were so kind about my outfit. Thank you!

Big events, where I know I’m going to be in front of thousands of people, make me feel anxious. The pressure is on to look just right! But no one wants to spend crazy money (especially around the holidays) if they don’t need to.

Here’s how I saved. The jacket and skirt were on sale. The black tank was only $26. I rented the necklace from Rocksbox and the shoes I’ve had for so long I can’t even remember where I got them from.

If you haven’t checked out the LC Lauren Conrad collection at Kohl’s, you’re missing out! The jacket and skirt are part of her collection and together they were both less than $100. While the coat is sold out in stores, there are quite a few listings available on eBay here.

Below are links to the entire outfit or items that are very similar. Clicking the pictures will take you right to the site where you can add these pieces to your own closet!

The outfit had to go with a great makeup look, right?! I’m filming a makeup tutorialΒ that’ll be live on my YouTube channel later this week. (Make sure to keep checking back for that OR subscribe to my YouTube channel here.) However! The key to keeping your makeup looking great is taking care of your skin!

For the first time EVER I got a facial. Holy crap! It was MAGICAL! Why haven’t I been treating myself sooner?! If you’re in the Seattle area, check out Northwest Aesthetics in Bellevue and ask for Lucy. That woman knows her stuff (and has a great Australian accent, too!) Like most people on the planet, I like winning things so you better believe I’ll be at their Holiday Party. Umm…hello…raffle prizes!! …and WINE?! I’m there! Who’s coming with me?? πŸ™‚
