I love pairing my sheer black tights (despite the runs) with black OTK sock, black wedges, and a bodysuit + skirt (or with a loose dress and over-sized sweater). This all black tights, socks, & shoe combo is slowly quickly becoming part of my daily uniform. Simply by switching up top half. Definitely what I'm wearing to all of my families holiday festivities today.

And my Holiday gift to you? This half-up braided crown tutorial that dresses up any look.

Half-Up Braided Crown Tutorial; Starting on either side, take three pieces of hair and begin to french braid back, taking hair only from the top as you go. French braid by tucking under rather than over to make the braid more prominent. When you get to the back secure with a bobby pin. Do the same on the other side. Remove bobby pins. Braid both sides together and down. Secure with a small clear elastic.

I'm wishing you all a wonderful Holiday filled with loved ones, light, and plenty of wine.
