Wearing Velvet for the Holidays and why it’s a Must!

Lately I’m obsessed with all things velvet!  I think it may have something to do with the holiday season but I’ve been loving it for my tablescapes, my home and even my wardrobe!  The holidays are the perfect time of year to bust out some velvet, and this year I’m taking full advantage.  I have three outfits today that will have you wearing it for the holidays too!

You can play with velvet on your accessories or you can be like me and go full force!  There are so many fun ways to add it in, today I’m sharing three.  Let’s start with my favorite first, this playful pair of overalls…  

Madewell is one of my favorite stores to shop at and they didn’t disappoint this holiday season.  Especially in the velvet department.  These overalls immediately caught my eye!  They’re so darn cute and overalls are always a fun and different option.  I paired them with this cute chambray top from Madewell also.
  You know we love a good kimono!  Another fun way to add velvet is to throw it over whatever you’re wearing!  This Flynn Skye kimono’s color is just amazing!!!  I found this Chaser Brand Champagne tee and thought it was perfect for this season!  This would be a fun casual NYE outfit if you are being mellow this year like I probably will be… Mom problems over here!  

Also, Dear Santa, I think I need a new pair of Vans, these are looking a little dirty, haha!


Last up, the dressy way to wear your velvet… With a floor length gown of course!  I am completely obsessed with this For Love & Lemons dress and was the minute I saw it.  The appliqué detail is so fun and the colors are on point for the holidays.  The straps are velvet and it’s just the perfect touch of one needs on a fabulous dress like this!

Shop all my picks and more below!  Seriously, velvet for the win people!!

Getting Fancy – Jacquelyn’s Style Picks from Cleobella for the Holidays

With the holiday season coming up you know you’re gonna be invited to SO many parties.  Because if you’re one of our readers, then you must be totally amazing!!  But seriously, what to wear?!  The holidays are great because you can definitely go a little out of your comfort zone.  With holiday style you can get sparkly and really have fun with what you wear, especially for New Years Eve!

Today I’m sharing a few of my favorite style picks for the holidays with Cleobella.  If you have followed us you know I am a huge fan of this local company.  They do boho perfectly and I always leave feeling like a million bucks with whatever I’ve purchased.  Here are a few sexy little numbers that you will love to get fancy with this holiday season…

Starting with the sexiest of all… This Jumpsuit!!!!  Honestly, I was a little terrified to try this sucker on!  But once it was on, I sort of fell in love… I’m still rocking those lovely (and larger) breast feeding boobs which aren’t the easiest to control.  However, I felt great in this!  I sort of want to send my husband this photo on New Years Eve because we will most likely just be in sweat pants on the couch haha!!  That’s our holiday style IRL.  A girl can dream though right?!

Next up is the most gorgeous dress!!  I actually wore this exact outfit to a dear friend’s wedding a few weeks ago!  The pretty champagne color is really lovely and the lace detailing just makes it.  It was the perfect dress to dance in all night and feel comfortable!  

I was a little worried about the bra factor but I just wore a lace bralette as suggested by the lovely ladies from Cleobella.  Simply add a leather jacket, a pair of heels and your favorite clutch and you are good to go!


Lastly, you can’t go wrong with an LBD, especially a sexy little number like this.  I like that since it shows quite a bit of cleavage that it has long sleeves.  Can’t show all the lady bits!  I love wearing tights during the winter season, especially tummy tamers like these.  Just add a cute hat to make it a little interesting and some boots, mine are vintage that I got ages ago in NYC.

Doesn’t Cleobella know how to do the holidays right?!  Lots of fun options below on what to wear this holiday season!  Take this time to have fun, get sparkly, and party!!!

Beijos Favorite Cozy Sweaters for the Fall Season

We had a looooong Indian summer down in Southern California, but the weather has finally changed.  I mean, it’s still in the 80’s this week, but it’s definitely colder in the mornings and evenings, ha!  But I’ve been busting out my sweater collection and I ain’t mad about it.  There’s just something about getting cozy during these colder seasons and sweaters are all about that.  I teamed up with Knot Sisters again for my favorite sweaters for the Fall Season and I’m sharing them today!  Check out these three looks, from dressy to casual, with their amazing sweaters this season.

This first look is very fun!  I have been seriously living in this long sweater since I got it.  The color is so pretty and goes with so much, and I love how I can throw it on over anything!  I get so many compliments on this sweater too!  For this look I paired it with a denim skirt, t-shirt, tights and booties.  I threw on a beanie as well to complete the entire look, and of course I’m always wearing my favorite sunnies.  This outfit is a little unexpected, and that’s why I love it for Fall!

Next up is this super pretty white Carlson sweater that is ultra cozy.  I love the fresh color and can picture wearing this well into Spring.  Since it’s such a neutral color I could have a little more fun with what to pair it with.  I am loving my new olive green pants, and these boots are a few years old but I found a similar pair here.  This hat gives it a little boho touch too…

Last up is a dressy take on the sweater, with a sweater dress!  This is such a fun option for holiday parties coming up.  One, the color is amazing!  Two, it’s super comfy!  And three, the possibilities are endless for what you can do with it!  Adding in fun accessories, dressing it up or down.  I wore my black tights, booties and added in this super cute clutch that is also perfect for the holidays as well.  I also threw in a cute black leather jacket to jazz it up a bit…

And there you have it!  You can shop more below… All of our favorite cozy sweaters for the Fall season in one place!

On the Hunt for our Favorite Fall Kimonos

Kimonos are one of our favorite items in our closets over at Beijos.  One, they’re easy to throw on and jazz up an outfit.  Two, if you’re feeling kinda yucky they cover a lot of territory, ya dig?  And Three, you can use them in so many ways – with jeans, shorts, a dress, a swimsuit… The options are endless!

I decided to head over to one of my favorite shops, Prism Boutique in Long Beach, to see what they had to offer.  They are the best in boho style and of course a kimono is just that.  I was on the hunt for a new Fall kimono and they didn’t disappoint with their selection.  With small business Saturday coming up next weekend I definitely want to support my local business owners, and Prism is one of them!

Keep scrolling to see my two favorites from their store, and you can see many more options on the site!  Also, more of my picks at the end of this post….

Novella Royale, another local brand which we highlighted a few months ago, has one of my favorite kimonos around.  It’s called the Jane robe and comes in so many different amazing prints.  I especially loved this one because the pretty green color just pops and can work year round.  Being a green eyed gal, I can’t resist a good green anyways, it just speaks to me!!

 I also found the basic white tank by Lacausa and the adorable hat by Brixton while I was shopping… Damn this place is bad for my budget!

My second pick is by the dreamy brand that is Jen’s Pirate Booty.  This is a kimono they do in cream all the time, but I thought this burnt orange color was just so perfect for Fall.  The lace detailing is so so gorgeous, you have to see and feel it in person to appreciate it.  Since this is so darn pretty, I wanted to make it a little rough…

To make it more edgy and less boho, I paired it with some ripped denim and a rocker tee from Midnight Rider!  And how amazing is that bag?!  I think I may need to go back for that one….  A little guest appearance by someone in the last shot too!

Where are you shopping for small business Saturday?!  And how do you wear kimonos?!  Please share below!  I’d love to hear your favorite shops to support and your style tips!

Dressing in our Favorite Fall Hues with Knot Sisters

After a few weeks of unbearable over 100 degree weather down here in Southern California, we are finally feeling like Fall!  The leaves are changing color and the temperature has dropped.  Ok, not that much, but it’s definitely changed!  And now we can finally start busting out our Fall style!  One of my favorite things about Fall are the beautiful colors that come with it.  I recently teamed up with Knot Sisters to share a few of my favorites in their Fall collection.  It’s all about dressing in our favorite Fall hues…  Keep scrolling to see!

Photos by Lyndsey Yeomans

Let’s start with one of my favorite colors and my new favorite dress!  Burgundy is a beautiful Fall tone that looks great on so many skin tones.  I especially love this dress because it is flowy, comfortable, the print is adorable and well, I just feel good in it!  It’s something I would wear during the day and easily throw on a jacket and a pair of heels to wear in the evening.  Gotta love that boho easy vibe it has.  My necklace here is from James Michelle and sunglasses by Wyeth


Second color on my list is classic black, because duh!  You can’t go wrong!  Black is always ok, no matter what season, so it was definitely on my list of Fall hues.  This fun little dress has the cutest embroidery detail and studs… It’s a little bit sweet and a little bit sexy, perfect for date night!  Another Fall and Winter essential, black tights, these are my favorites



Next up is olive green… Being a green eyed gal, this is always a color I gravitate towards.  This simple dress has cute pockets and a sexy neckline.  You can pair this with so many things and dress it up or down.  I added another pop of color with my burgundy leather jacket, but the possibilities are endless!  This ones a classic piece that would be good in all of our closets!

Last but not least is navy blue…  This isn’t a color I buy that often to be honest, but lately I have gravitated towards blue.  Maybe it’s because I’m a mom of boys, but blue seems to always be around me.  I’m obsessed with this top and this beautiful print Knot Sisters has, using navy with mustard yellow and Burgundy.  I’ve already worn it on a date night, but the off the shoulder makes it perfect for those fun occasions.  Just add a cute hat and some boots and you’re set!
