It's New Years Eve and I thought I would squeeze one more post before 2015! For years I have spent NYE night either at church with my family or at home celebrating with family and friends. This year is no exception, and I will be at home with close family celebrating the New Year. However, I still wanted to create a last minute outfit for those of you who are looking for a minimalist NYE look.No sparkle, no glitter, no gold or silver but still glamorous.

Borrowed from the boys: Black and white holiday oufit

For the holidays, shades of black and white always seem so fitting on such festive occasions. For this look I once again borrowed from the boys to put together this black and white holiday outfit with a pop of red. Although the holidays are a very busy time of year, it should also be the time to let loose and experiment with different styles. I wanted to achieve a very androgynous look but this time played up the femininity in the details.

The patterned suit

The patterned suit is a chic and daring  play on the traditional pant suit. It adds boldness and fun to an outfit that can otherwise be a bit uninspiring.
 I love the touch of muscularity and sophistication that pant suits bring to an outfit. That's why I had been on the search for more cute patterned suits to add to my closet. I found this funky plaid suit at Target!

Hello my name is Miss J and  I'm a workaholic. If I don’t have piles of things to do with  strict deadlines, then I feel completely lost. So, how strange has it been for me to be done exams, and have my schedule cleared for the next few weeks? Answer: very strange!

The camel coat

If you’ve not yet found the perfect winter coat or are looking to add more selection to your closet,  you may want to consider investing in a classic camel coat. 
 For a couple of seasons camel coats have been everywhere and I can understand why. The camel coat  goes well with everything imaginable and will stay with you for seasons to come. 
I personally love coats but this season I find  myself often reaching out for this pretty camel coat in a wool trench coat style.

Hat Crazy

Whether it's to shield yourself from the sun or keep yourself warm in the winter, hats are a must have during any season. Whether you choose to rock a baseball cap, fedora, or a beanie, a hat can complete any outfit.
Lately, I find myself often reaching for some kind of hat  to help battle the cold and to add additional interest to my outfits.
I decided in the spirit of the season to post a few of my favorite hat must-haves!

Still unsure what to give to those remaining on your holiday list?
A hat or maybe two may be a good option.

For the winter, warm head gear is essential to avoid freezing! Here are a few cute, practical, and causal  hats to battle the cold shown below.

Thigh high boots + A killer Poncho

The hunt for the perfect poncho has been a rough one but it's finally come to an end. Previously, when I did come across one, they were  either not to my liking or they were way too expensive. After finding this one I can now see what all the hype is all about over ponchos this season. 
My next "must find" item is the perfect cape coat and then I will be satisfied (wish me luck).
