Folk Motives and Embroidery Trends

My husband made me do it! Yes, he not only takes pride in taking my photos, but he picked this shirt for me.

I already talked about embroidery trends here, but there is something different about this top. The folk element of the embroidery along with the A-line cut make it that one-of-a-kind piece you need in your closet. Brace yourselves with the Zara Winter Sale currently going on, you can score this shirt for less than $40 here. Styled simply with a pair of jeans or a legging, you don’t even need any special accessories. I love the pairing with these Steve Madden OTK boots (I got last year on, but a pair of clean stilettos will make the look even more elegant.

Happy Holidays! xoxo, ❤

A Semi-Casual Holiday Look

As we get close to the holidays, our calendars are getting packed with events and parties, yet our closets might seem empty. If this sounds like you – you’re not alone! Finding the perfect holiday outfit isn’t easy. Of course, it depends on the type of event you’re attending. If you’re unsure whether your next party is dressy or casual, this post might help you. I have picked out a plain Target sweater dress I purchased last year. The color and style are both still on trend, so it doesn’t look outdated. To dress it up I have added a nice pair of Wolford tights and a gorgeous statement necklace by Mirina Collections. Better yet, you can receive a 20% discount with code antoniaxo on this Mirina necklace and more similar statement pieces here. Finally, these  Topshop OTK boots, also on sale, add the final touch of the outfit and voila!
