Metallic Sweater Dress

You guys already know by now that I'm a bit obsessed with sweater dresses and over-the-knee boots, and this one is no different! This sweater dress from NastyGal is SO cute, but most of all I love the tiny flecks of metallic gold in the dress! You have to see it in person to see how beautiful the details are. If you're having a casual New Year's Eve, this dress would be PERFECT! NastyGal has SOOOO many ute dresses right now and everything on their website is currently 40% off (+ free shipping!) with code 40NOW - click here to see some their new arrivals.

I'm also linking up a bunch of holiday party dresses from NastyGal in the widget below!

I hope everyone has a wonderful weekend!!

Holiday Party Makeup with Ulta

Happy Thursday, everyone, I'm back with a really fun party makeup look! I NEVER do my makeup this dramatic, but I think it's so fun to do for a holiday party - eyeshadow, fake lashes, a red lip and the whole works! Read on for a list of the full products I used (all from Ulta!).

Ulta products used:
Infallible Pro-Matte 24HR Foundation // NARSissist Eyeshadow Palette // Eyelure Vegas Nay 'Absolute Allure'   // Anastasia Beverly Hills Dipbrow Pomade color 'Soft Brown'  // It Cosmetics 'Chic in the City' Brushes // Urban Decay After Glow Highlighter Palette // LancĂ´me Monsieur Big Mascara // MAC lipstick "Lady Danger"
wearing: bow dress

I started by applying my normal foundation and mascara (by the way I just started using this mascara and I LOVE it! Almost as much as "Better Than Sex"), then I did my eyeshadow. I have been dying to try out this NARSissist Eyeshadow Palette - especially the shimmer shadows - so I picked it up from Ulta last week! I applied the darker shades in my crease and a shimmer shadow all over the lid. Next I applied false lashes - I usually only wear false lashes for special occasions, but when I do my absolute favorite brand is Vegas Nay from Ulta. I'm wearing these lashes in the post - I trim mine down and apply them only to the outer corner of my eyes for a dramatic, cat-eye look. They're absolutely perfect for any Christmas or New Year's Eve parties you have to go to! The final, finishing touches were highlighter - I used this palette in the "no angel" shade - and a red lip - MAC lipstick "Lady Danger"  (if you've been reading my blog this holiday season, it's been my go-to!).

Let me know if you have any questions about this look!

Faux Fur Vest + Cable Knit Dress

faux fur vest, also love this one // MAC lipstick in "lady danger"

Good morning and happy Tuesday! Today's look features a very classic Winter combo - my favorite faux fur vest paired with a sweater dress. This sweater dress in particular is really worth it - it's very thick and high quality so it will keep you warm! I know I talked about expensive boots on the blog yesterday, so today I wanted to feature a pair that's just as cute but also affordable :) These Sole Society "allegra" boots are just gorgeous, don't you think?! They also come in a "dark taupe" color that is equally as pretty.

If you're following along on Instagram you may know that I landed in NYC yesterday! Y'all - it is sooo pretty all decorated for Christmas! I'm working on a fun project all day and to be honest I'm a little nervous about it. Check out some of my Instastories today to see why :)

The Best OTK Boots for Petite Calves

One of my most-asked questions this year has been "how do your OTK boots stay up?" The answer is that I'm wearing amazing boots! They're the Stuart Weitzman hiline boots from Nordstrom and they come in several different colors (I own them in the black suede & nutmeg suede). I have tried on TONS of over-the-knee boots and none fit my legs like these Stuart Weitzman ones. I have small legs and calves (I was called "chicken legs" in middle school and high school, which really hurt my feelings at the time) but these boots actually fit them. Yes, they are expensive, but I HIGHLY recommend them because they will last you years and years. I've had a gray pair for four years now and they still look brand new! If you have any questions about them, comment below & I'm happy to answer :)

And check out the rest of Nordstrom's Designer Apparel and Accessories here!

I'm headed to the Big Apple today for a really fun project - I can't wait to share with you guys!! Follow me on Instagram (@cmcoving) for a sneak peek.

Holiday Styling Two Ways with Heidi Klum for Lidl

Have you heard of the grocery store Lidl? They just came out with the "Let's Celebrate" collection from esmara by Heidi Klum, and not only is everything super cute and glam, but it's also incredibly affordable! Today I wanted to show you two different holiday looks from the collection: a more casual look and a dressier one. In the above photos, I styled this fuzzy sweater (less than $15) with these dark wash skinny jeans (less than $10!). This entire look is incredibly comfy - doesn't the sweater look so soft?! The black wool blend coat is also a great piece from the collection, I love the faux fur collar!

This next look would be absolutely perfect for a New Year's Eve party! Can you believe this sequin dress is less than $20?! I love the mixture of navy, black and silver sequins. The Heidi Klum collection also includes sequin skirts and even a pair of sequin pumps! I also included some of my favorite holiday party snacks from Lidl - they have the most DELICIOUS chocolate in the world! And their Pinot Noir is also amazing - it's hand selected by Lidl's Master of Wine who tasted over 10,000 wines to curate their selection! 

You can check out the entire Heidi Klum for Lidl collection here - the collection just launched in stores on 12/7 so head to your nearest Lidl to check it out (click here to find the Lidl nearest to you). 

Happy Saturday, everyone!
