Black Peplum Top and Burgundy Velvet Leggings

This peplum top and velvet leggings combo mixes several trends (velvet and lace) into one beautiful holiday look. Wearing dresses is easy to throw on for holiday gatherings but not the best when you are opening presents on the floor and chilling out for long periods of time. These leggings are festive but so comfortable and the perfect alternative.  Read on to see how I plan to style both pieces when the holidays are over.

Peplum Top and Velvet Leggings

I found both of these pieces on Zappos when I was shopping for winter gear for my sons.  Being a part of their VIP program, I get all my purchases the next day at no charge so it’s the perfect site to get badly needed items fast. I already have several dresses but like to have one festive outfit that comfortable. These leggings are like wearing pajamas because of how soft and stretchy they are. The peplum top is special because of the lace peplum detail and sheer sleeves. It really dresses up the leggings. I plan on pairing this blouse with my flared jeans after the holidays. The leggings will work nicely with oversized sweaters.  Yay for versatile pieces that can be worn in more than one season!

One Week until Christmas!

Cannot believe that Christmas is already here.  Here’s another look at all my gift guides for the season.

So how is everyone’s holiday season going? It’s been much more relaxed for me this year which has been nice. This upcoming weekend is going to be the busy one since we have a party everyday for three days leading up to Christmas.  My sons and I went to see The Last Jedi this past Saturday and all I can say is wow! It was amazing and you should go see it if you like Star Wars at all.  Happy Monday!
