Bells & Bows

Bonjour Alphas!

MBL here♥

Now that Thanksgiving is uh-ficially over, you have to start thinking about Christmas! Presents, brightly-lit houses, Christmas trees, jingle bells, and snowflakes all accompany this amazing holiday but there is always a tad bit of stress revolving this jolly time of year. Besides finding the most perfect presents for your favorite family members and friends, you have to look totes adorable while handing them out.

This post will be a compilation of great Christmas party outfits so you don’t have to worry about last minute rushing!

Bows and sequins are the mantra of Christmas. You will always look festive when incorporating these styles into your outfits.

Pair a cute top with a statement necklace, this simple combination is stunning!

Pair a silky top with a sequined or metallic-esque skirt for a glam look!

Go the Comfy-Casual route by throwing an oversized sweater over a pair of skinnies. Adding some cute details like ankle boots and bows in your hair can help dress up the look!

Collars are a must this Fall so incorporating them into your Christmas wardrobe is oh-so-adorable.

If you are totally blanking on an outfit, pair a sheer blouse with some skinnies and a couple strands of pearls. Nothing says classy like this chic look!

Don’t forget the sparkle! The holidays are all about glam and things that shine, and since sequins are absolutely everywhere it’s a perfect time to invest in a gorgeous dress (:

Try and remember that this time of year is all about enjoying the holidays with your loved ones, not stressing about it! Next time you’re feeling overwhelmed or can hardly walk after a long shop-a-thon, take a couple deep breaths and a sip of your favorite Starbucks latte. You’ll be feeling better in no time!

Enjoy your holiday shopping girlies!

Fall in Love with a Fall Party :)

Bonjour Lovelies!

Massie Block Love here :)

Aren’t you just dying to throw the perfect party? Now that it’s fall, you can throw the cutest outdoor, orange & red, pumpkin loving, leaf crunching, bonfire smelling, marshmallow roasting bash.

If you’re like me and absolutely loveee bonfires, than you’re in luck! This post will be all about throwing the cutest bonfire anyone has ever attended :)

To start off, make a beautiful roaring fire with extra wood set aside to keep it going long into the night.

Have the cutest and most fall themed outfit.

If you party happens to be on or around Halloween, make sure there are adorable pumpkins adorning your yard to give it a festive look :)

Serve delicious hot chocolate and for a bonus, have flavor shots sitting around so people can add caramel, peppermint, or vanilla to theirs!

Your guests will eventually get cold and want to mingle between outside and inside so have delicious smelling candles set up around your house to remind them why they’re there!

Have cozy blankets sitting around your bonfire so people can curl up if they get to chilly. Plus, it can be super romantic!

Have smore’s supplies sitting around just waiting to be eaten :)

Now all you have to do is sit back and enjoy! :)

Runway to Hallways

Bonjour ma Chéries!

MassieBlockLove here! Today’s post is going to completely dedicated to Fall Fashion! I’m sure you’ve all been keeping up with NY Fashion Week and studying up to make sure you have the cutest wardrobe for Fall and back to school :)

Here are some of Dial A’s favorite Fall trends!

Collars

On the runway they’re outrageous but in the hallways, I would suggest toning it down a bit. Stick with shirts that have a natural collar like button ups and blouses. Sheer is really in right now too so combining the two would be even better. Stick with simple colors and styles but if you want to amp it up, pick out a shirt with a studded, multicolored, or jeweled collar.

Fun Sweaters

Fun sweaters may be the easiest runway trend to pull off! The trick is choosing the right style. You want your sweater to be fun and quirky but not a flashback from your grandma’s closet. When choosing styles, stick with tight or really slouchy sweaters. I would always suggest paring a sweater with skinny jeans and flats or boots. When it comes to the fabric, we can’t get enough of cable knit.

The Color Red

Red always seems to be a Fall favorite so mix it up this year! Instead of buying cute red sweaters, dresses, and skirts, stick with red accessories to brighten up a dull outfit. I would suggest investing in a cute pair of red flats, a red scarf, and red earrings or rings. Adding these glam up a simple outfit is way more hallway friendly than dressing head to toe in the color.

Blazers

EVERYONE needs a cute blazer. Whether it be black or a bright color, it’s a must for every wardrobe. School dress codes can be quite restrictive leaving your favorite tank tops stuck in the closet but adding a blazer over the top is the perfect way to make it school appropriate. While the weather is still warm right now, you can always wear a blazer with shorts for a more flirty look.

Sequins

Sequins have been “in” for what seems like an eternity, and for a good reason! Nothing brightens an outfit better than a little sparkle! Now we all can’t go strutting down the hallway in a sequin dress, so stick to sequin tops! Pairing them with dark wash skinny jeans and flats is the perfect combination. There are a million styles and as long as you don’t go over the top, this look is always school appropriate :)
