Not being a creature of the cold, I much prefer the holiday season in California, versus snowy New York! So today I'm bringing you guys my take on a holiday ready look, complete with a California twist, as part of my recent collaboration with Ardene! Ardene is a Canadian fashion retailer, but for those of you in New York, you'll be able to stop by their first US store at Crossgates Mall which just opened!

Even in the winter, I love being able to show some skin still so I'll make sure that I keep the rest of my body nice and warm. Luckily, California winters are not very brutal so I'm happy I get to wear crop tops year round! ;) I paired mine with a pair of black skinnies and matching black platform boots to further elongate the line of my legs. Then, to stay warm on top, I wore a chunky dark burgundy/plum cardigan, and layered a cozy plaid blanket scarf over it! Blanket scarves are definitely a favorite of mine because you can also wear them as a shawl! Lastly, to add a little sparkle, I wore these dainty sharktooth and crystal necklaces.

Anyways, thank you for stopping by and I hope for those of you who celebrate Thanksgiving, that you all had a happy Thanksgiving! And if you're out shopping today, I hope that you got some great deals! :)

Cutout Cat Eye Sunglasses c/o Freyrs, DIY Rainbow Dress, Cutout Gem Cuff c/o 2020AVE, DIY White Fluffy Heels

Today's look is inspired by the sky: with rainbow gradients and fluffy cloud heels! I got this amazing rainbow dress for only $7 off of Vinted recently! It's originally from Forever 21 but as I needed to take it in on the sides a bit, I decided to also give the dress a whole new halter tie neckline while I was at it! 

The chunky white heels are from Poshmark which I got for only $9. I love fluffy heels but they can be expensive, but luckily it's super easy to add on the trim yourself, which you can find at the fabric store!

With some basic sewing skills and DIY knowledge, you can save a lot of money and transform old garments into new styles, which helps our environment too :) And definitely check out Vinted and Poshmark if you haven't before; especially if you love thrifting and shopping secondhand, you'll love being able to do so straight from your phone or computer!

For accessories, I wore these lovely cutout sunglasses from Freyrs! The shape of the frame is very flattering and the lenses have such a vibrant color to them. These are also super durable as the frame is metal! It paired so well with my cutout arm cuff from 2020AVE too. I love when things match so perfectly!

I hope you guys like the new post as more outfit posts are coming very soon! :) Hope you all have a lovely week!
