Ladies, I am SO excited about this Esmara line By Heidi Klum!
This collection is EVERYTHING. From going out to a casual lunch to dazzling at a New Year’s Eve party! So, this blog post is going to be a bit longer than my usual posts, but bear with me, because this line is for everyone and the prices are amazing!
Let’s start with Everyday Wear. Take a look at this black cardigan ($14.99) below. I put together a couple outfits with this cardigan because you can stay super casual or easily dress it up a bit!
The second way I decided to style this cardigan is with the same jeans and t-shirt, but I added a statement necklace and black booties. This outfit would be perfect for a casual business meeting, dinner or a date! If you’re always in a hurry like me, this is perfect, because it was a super simple transition to my second look for the evening.
Without further ado, let’s get to the stuff that sparkles, shall we?!
I got SO many compliments when I was wearing this outfit! The velvet top ($7.99) is SUPER soft and it goes perfectly with this midi sequin skirt ($12.99). Pair this with heels, booties or flats. You really can’t go wrong here! I’ve attached a photo below to show you all of the colors the velvet top comes in!
Navy blue, dusty pink, black and red!
Who is ready for even more sparkles?? ME!
Below is a dress that is PERFECT for a NYE party, holiday party or a night out with the girls. It’s form fitting, but not super tight, so you can still cut some rug in it! This dress looks great with OR without leggings. I paired it with faux leather booties and a black clutch. THAT’S IT, and I was party ready! What’s even more amazing is that this dress is $19.99! C’mon now!
This dress also comes in 4 different colors! So you can choose your favorite or ALL four! (black, blue, trio of blue/black/silver and rose gold)
Where will you be wearing your sparkle dress? Trust me, wherever it is, you’re going to be a stunner!
Also, be sure check out the winter wool blend coats! ($29.99!) They come in black with black OR beige trim! So pretty!
This whole line is SO VERSATILE so I made a quick video to show you a few different ways you can mix and match the pieces! View below.

Tomorrow is December 1st which is MIND blowing. Time is flying by and that means less time for you to figure out what to wear to all the Holiday parties and events coming up. Luckily, I’m here to share yet again another favorite outfit of mine with you. Below I have styled one of the newest jumpsuits from Esmara by Heidi Klum!! This line will hit in Lidl stores on December 7th! One week from today.
I took a plain black jumpsuit, added the faux fur stole that is also from Esmara tied it around my shoulder to totally change the look and feel of this jumpsuit. The faux fur also comes in blush. It’s only $9.99!!
I’m all about finding staple pieces for my closet that I can easily add some flashy accessories to and be ready to go! A great thing about this jumpsuit is you can easily put on a denim jacket and rock a pair of sneakers too. Each piece of the new Let’s Celebrate collection can be worn in so many different way.
Can you believe this jumpsuit is only $14.99?!?
You can get the jumpsuit and fax fur stole for under $30!!
The second jumpsuit it sleeveless and I will be sharing that and more looks soon on the blog and on my social media. Keep your eye out on my channels and if you’re near a Lidl make sure you mark your calendar for this launch. Her items sell out so quickly! You can do an entire outfit for under $50. You can’t do that very much these days.
If you have any questions on sizing or outfit pairings, feel free to send me a message. I would be glad to help you put together a Holiday outfit. If you’re local to Manasas, VA I will be at that Lidl location December 7th when the doors open for the big reveal. Come meet me and get your Holiday outfit needs done!

Where do I even begin? I can’t even explain how I’m 31 and have never been to New York City! But, I had an amazing first time and I don’t think it could have gone any better. Not only did I get to meet my blogger bestie Adaleta (click HERE for her Instagram) for the first time in person, we also got to stay at Yotel Hotel! Yotel Hotel is thee cutest hotels I’ve ever stayed in. Below I will share with you why I truly LOVED my stay and was so blessed to have them host us!
The first thing you notice when you pull up is this YOTEL sign lit up in purple, at night you can see if from every corner of the block. (Thank goodness — I couldn’t get lost “follow the purple lights”) Soon as you walk in the hotel front lobby is gorgeous! It’s CLEAN ( Being in NY, I have no idea how they keep it so spotless) and there are computer to check into if you haven’t used their app already. (I plan ahead and used their app! It’s called Yotel in the app store.)
Customer Service is ON point!
There are friendly faces greeting you when you first walk in, asking if you need any assistance. Youssef was someone Adaleta and I had the pleasure to speak with a few times, he was amazing. Always had a smile on his face, helped us with our bags and kept them for us the day we checked out while we went and grabbed lunch.
I appreciate no matter how many questions I asked the staff, they were always willing to help and always had a smile on their face. They could of been slammed with people but they kept their cool, and to me, thats everything!
Every time I grabbed the elevator for level 4, which is their main lobby and when the doors opened, I was in love…with every piece of decor. (Please feel free to ship to my home!) Just look at this!!!
Everything had such flair, it’s own special place and they mixed and matched different styles. It was done beautifully. I still want this daisy stool for my office!!
Adaleta and myself had a few meals at the hotel when we needed something quick and didn’t feel like putting real clothes on. Below you’ll find their outdoor patio and how we got down and grubbed.
Yes, I know what you’re thinking — That IS a beer pong table! haha This outdoor space is a HIT. People who don’t even stay here come to hangout when the night life starts. They have a full bar outside as well as a food menu. I had tried their burger/fries and also their brunch — both were delicious! I’m such a foodie and was very pleased with everything. You’re welcome for adding a food photo & nowwww you’re hungry!
Our room/cabins were so cute and had the best view! I can’t complain waking up the hustle and bustle of NYC. Not only is it gorgeous, its so motivating. The floor to ceiling windows and the bed was motorized where you can lay flat or sit up straight. I also need one of those sent home too. haha!
I stayed on the 20th floor and Adaleta was above me on the 22nd. We both had gorgeous views!!! You can view mine below, and yes…Rocking my Steeler slippers like a champ.
I must admit, I kept my windows open every night so I could see the city lit up at night. I feel asleep to it and woke up to it. I fell so in love with NYC in the week I stayed and I’m counting down the days until I can go back to Yotel and visit where I’ve always belonged!
I adore how this is downtown Manhattan but NOT in the middle of Times Square. Every place that Adaleta and myself needed to be was 15-20 mins in one direction or another. It was easy for us to get around and theres a bunch of places within walking distance. Chase Bank, Dry Bar, Fed Ex, a lot of different restaurants and coffees shops. (There is a coffee shop inside the hotel on level 4. They have everything you’d want and small treats!) Location is key when choosing a hotel and we were both very pleased with their location.
Let’s get back to how much fun Adaleta and I had together here at Yotel. We had brunch Sunday morning together before our photoshoot! We even had a mimosa, well she did and mine…actually she knocked mine over. haha
Our brunch was delicious! She went for the burger after I told her how amazing mine was earlier in the week and I got the steak and eggs! I know just uploading this photo made my mouth water. Yotel, please send some to VA! K, thanks!
If you’re looking for a new place to stay for your next New York City trip, I highly recommend you check out Yotel Hotel and enjoy every aspect they have for you. It’s more than a hotel, it truly feels like a home away from home. Couldn’t be happier with my 6 days there. Yotel also has hotels all over the US and internationally as well. Where’s you next vacation? Take a look HERE and see if Yotel is there! I promise, you’ll have a blast and won’t be let down. Hotels need to feel more than just a room to stay in, Yotel created an atmosphere you’ll want to spend time in. This makes all the difference!
Thank you Yotel Hotel in NYC for letting Adaleta and I have the time of our lives here in New York for Fashion Week. It was a vacation we will never forget.

You can even tuck the chain into the crossbody and use this as a clutch if you like. The gold tassel detailing is my favorite. Its the little things that make the bag!! You can easily where this entire outfit to work or for a night out on the town, add a jacket and you can change your look quickly and easily!
Thank you Heidi for making me feel like a supermodel myself in this outfit. Mission accomplished!
Second outfit I styled two different ways was this stunning metallic skirt. I am SO into this trend right now and I’m ok admitting I will buy anything metallic. LOL. I styled this skirt in two ways; edgy and classy. I will show you both below. You can purchase this skirt for only $9.99 and it comes in 4 different styles. If you’re feeling sassy you can rock the metallic or leopard – if you’d like to tone it down for a certain occasion you can rock the plain black and navy blue!
I love staple pieces, is this is why I’m crazy for her line. You can literally mix and match whatever you want with these items and you still look amazing! White T-shirt? Yep! Leather jacket? Yep! Faux Fur! Why not!
My third outfit I put together was with the new knit coatigan. There are four different styles of this as well and it’s priced for $19.99! Below I’m wearing the cognac! It also comes in black, blue and a color block of beige – black – blue and creme which is stunning. This coatigan can easily be paired with your favorite pair of jeans, t-shirt and sneakers. I paired mine with a shirt dress and thigh high boots!
I’m also rocking my new black clutch – this is also $19.99 and comes with a cross body strap as well incase you want to rock is across! It comes in this color and also a blue/black.
I hope you found some great pieces to add to your own closet and you don’t have to break the budget! I know I’m currently on my way to Lidl as soon as I hit “publish” on this post. I am so excited to see the store.

This was one of my favorite outfits of NYFW, “Make Fashion Great Again“
Express yourself, everyday. No matter what people say.
These booties are AMAZING, I wore them all night and my feet didn’t hurt, I was as surprised as you are. I’m all about shoes that you don’t need to break in. I’ve linked them below and also some other you can make a statement wearing this Fall!
My handbag is by Kendall & Kylie but SOLD OUT most places I could link but I have some websites I did find the medium sized bag which I’m carrying and then the mini one as well. I lucked out and found mine at my local TJMAXX for $99!!

Metallics are EVERY WHERE!! If you don’t own something Metallic yet, you need to. As long as it’s something you like. I felt like Barbie when I first put this skirt on and I ran with it! I linked my exact skirt below and then some other gorgeous ones. I am ALL about taking a statement piece and then adding a graphic t-shirt. Also, every item below is 50% OFF! Use code “GET50”
My t-shirt was a hit, it was a little expensive than the usual t-shirts I buy BUT the material is SILK, which explains the price point. It’s light weight and feels amazing on. I can also wear this t-shirt with any bottom and it will be a hit! I love pieces you can wear different ways. I purchased this shirt from Undeniablebtq — located in Fairfax. You can shop from the direct link HERE.
Follow them on Instagram for their new releases: @undeniablebtq
My sunnies have been one of my favorites since my bestie @hauteoffthebrush surprised me with them. My boyfriend even has them in black! I’ve linked them below and some similar!
