You guys probably know it by now: I am not the biggest fan of dressing fancy. As feminine as I am, I always prefer keeping it simple and casual and I do not usually feel very "me" in big, classy dresses with super duper high heels and a bold make up.

With the Holiday season approaching, I thought it would be nice to share with you all a few ideas on how to be chic while staying casual - for all the girls out there who just like me, like to look pretty without being overdressed.

This look a perfect example of what I am saying: it's casual, yet with a festive touch. Wearing a sweater to a party is totally ok, as long as you dress it up with a skirt. Same goes for the black boots: add a pair of sparkling earrings to break the boyish vibe and you're ready to go!

--- I'm wearing: 
BOOTS: Diesel Black Gold (budget)
BAG: Stella McCartney via Monnier Frères
EARRINGS: Wanderluster
