Casual holiday elegance.

The holidays can be so fancy that often, by Friday, I crave denim and a paired down version of my traditional uniform. Sometimes I have so many fancy separates that it's difficult for me to compose a basic outfit. Which is downright silly given that I have a gazillion basics just sitting in my closet! Ahhhh the life of a blogger!  

As long as you have a great pair of jeans than make you feel good on the inside and have 50% of the style success recipe. These jeans are from Zara this season and I wear them about 4x's a week.  

My top is from SheIn and is under $30. It's a total style steal and everyone is in love with the dramatic sleeves. Can't say I blame them. It's festive and unique...a statement top, if you will.  

The rest of my outfit is comprised of the basics. A slammin' pair of nude heels. Invest in these! And a cute clutch for an added pop of color.  

Those are Johanna's ABC's of style. It just works for me. What's yours?
