Let’s Celebrate the Holidays in Affordable Glam! Esmara By Heidi Klum At Lidl

*This post was sponsored by Lidl – All opinions and outfit ideas are my own 😉 

Heidi Klum is back with Esmara for Lidl and this second collection made my heart skip a beat. You add sequins, velvet, sparkles and faux fur to an affordable price tag and I’m going IN!!! I can’t get enough of this collection. I wanted to wear everything and share everything in one day with you guys. There are so many amazing pieces that I will she showcasing throughout the next month, so keep your eyes on my blog and social media channels. This collection hits Lidl locations on December 7th and will sell out quick!! You can view her first collection by clicking HERE, also search to see if their is a Lidl near you by clicking HERE.

I’m a sucker for a staple piece sweater that you can wear with jeans when out and about during the day, sweats when you’re at home relaxing or running errands and even adding a skirt for a night out on the town. Also a huge fan of when the sweater is only $14.99!! Yep, that’s right. Above you can just image how soft that sweater is, trust me– you need one!

Comes in sizes 2-12. I’m wearing a size 4.

Another favorite piece of this collection is the jumpsuit! There are two different options that she is releasing, the other one I will showcase in a later post. It’s also under $20! It’s $14.99!!!

Comes in “One Size” – I’m usually a size 4 and this fit me.

I added a fun faux fur stole as an accessory to this outfit! It comes in light pink and black. You can adjust how tight or loose you’d like it to be, you’ll see below a photo of how it ties.

I’m wearing a size 4 and is only $9.99!!

A great item to add to a plain t-shirt, dress or jumpsuit like I did. Sky is the limit for how you can use this accessory in your daily outfits.

Heidi designed some GORGEOUS camisoles! Comes in 4 different colors and even 1 velvet.

Since the weather here in Virginia has been getting chilly, I added a plain white t-shirt under mine. Add some fun accessories and you’re ready to go. I went with a black chocker to vibe into my 90’s look. Anyone else love how fashion trends are coming back? I know I do!!

Sizes 2-12. I’m wearing a size 4. Only $5.99!

She designed another 3 pairs of jeans/pants for this collection and yet again — perfect fit! I’m wearing a size 6 in these. They come in Black, black faux jean/leather look and dark denim. For only $9.99 you could get multiple pairs — I know I went back to the store and bought 2 more pairs for later. When I love something, I buy it in every color and multiples — no shame here!!

This clutch is from her first collection and is one of my favorites, I use it all the time!

I love how easy it is to take her pieces and mix -n- match them. You have total control on taking any staple piece from her collections and making it into your own fashion statement or a day to day piece for work or event! I hope you enjoyed some of my styling ideas for her new collection. I also hope to see you at the Manassas Lidl location on Dec. 7th! I will be there helping you style the new collection.

How to transition your favorite skirt from Summer into Fall.

You can easily take your favorite skirt from an earlier season, pair with some tights and you can rock it all year ’round! It’s a great way to not only be able to enjoy one of your favorite pieces of your wardrobe but to even save from having to buy another item! Don’t get me wrong, I am all about finding great deals and adding new staple pieces in your closet, but also re-using items. Don’t forget how much we waste and throw out, re-use or even donate. What item you might be over, someone else might be looking for! Just my 2-cents for the day!!

With that being said! I found this skirt at Macy’s Backstage — it’s part of Macy’s but a separate sections where they discount items to move them out of the store. If you haven’t checked if they have one at your local Macy’s you can click HERE to find out. It’s an amazing way to find a great deal.

I was gifted a few items from my local store and this suede skirt and these booties were two of the items I could leave without!! This skirt is out of stock but I have linked some great trendy skirts below. You could wear them to work with tights or skip the tights for date night or a night out with the girls!

I always buy 4-5 pair of tights for the Fall/Winter season and wear them out! I’ve linked some great affordable ones below. Black is usually my go-to color but this season I think I might add a red, grey and olive pair to my collection. I’ve been leaning towards the bolder side these last few months. (As if you couldn’t tell with some of my #ootds – haha)

I hit the jackpot when I found these booties by GUESS at Macy’s Backstage. They were marked down from $135 to under $30!!!!! I was like “Yep, coming home with mama!” – Also they have great support. I was shocked to be honest. Didn’t know how painful it would be to break them in. I’ve noticed with all the GUESS shoes I’ve purchased, they have all been conformable. Good job Guess, high five to you for not killing my feet. Below I’ve linked some similar styles that I love and they are actually on sale as well. Click any of the photos below to shop and find out the sale price!

Can’t go wrong with a good classic GUCCI. Linked below are some of my favorites including the one I’m wearing. Different colors can be seen by clicking the photos below.

Sunnies — for me, it’s a way for myself not to get busted for rolling my eyes. lol Anyone else? Can’t be just me. Linked below are some great pairs for a reasonable price! (First two pairs use TONYA15 for 15% off)

Last but not least is this gorgeous top! I love when I can get away without having to accessorize as much, I know total excuse but it’s true. This top seals the deal for me! A peek-a-boo cut out in the neck which makes a choker. Thank you and you’re welcome. haha Direct link is below, also comes in 4 colors and I’m wearing a small! I also linked some of my favorite others from their “top” section!

Thanks for stopping by! Hope you got an idea how to turn one of your earlier seasoned pieces into something you can rock for Fall or Winter! xx, Tonya Michelle

I believe you can rock anything and make it fashionable. Short skirt or long skirt. It’s all on how you style your outfit and also be confident! I even thought twice before buying this skirt but I’m so glad my friend Sofia talked me into it. It was one of my favorite pieces for NYFW. I will be rocking this all season long.

Below you’ll find all items linked for you as well as similar items.

This skirt is still in stock and runs a little big, I usually wear a size 4, I could of done a size 2! I wore it more high-waisted with a bodysuit. It’s less than $35! (Faux leather.)

Click  HERE to shop.

Let’s talk accessories! I honestly threw together mine as I was getting dressed to take these photos. I believe when I plan something out, I try to hard to match and not just wear what I’m feeling. I paired these glasses and earrings together and I thought it was perfect for that moment. Whatcha think?

My glasses are sold out, but will restock (you can be emailed when restocked), direct link is HERE. You can use coupon code TONYA15 for $15 off anything on their site! Below I’ve linked some similar ones for you!

I’ve started to really love earrings this year, I used to always wear diamond studs and be a plain Jane. lol But now, I’ve embraced the fun trend and the fun you can have with adding a pair to your outfit! These come in silver or gold, currently on sale for $15! Direct link is HERE.

Linked some similar fun pairs below!

These suede booties are my obsession! They run true to size and don’t need “broken in” — don’t we all love that? I’ve linked these HERE for you to shop and again below are some other fun choices that are in a lower price bracket!! Win-Win!

My big purchase while I was in NYC was my GG Marmont matelassé mini bag. It’s a bag I’ve had my eye on for awhile now and decided I deserved it. I’ve linked it HERE for you. I’ve also linked some similar bags below as well.

Last but not least my bodysuit is from Yummie! It’s one of my favorite brands for staple pieces and workout gear. I’ve been posting about them for over a year, products are great and truly hold up after wearing and washing. Items run true to size, in the bodysuit I do a medium! I’ve linked it HERE for you and below is similar items!

Hope you loved this look and found some pieces to add to your Fall collection!

Thank you Heidi for making me feel like a supermodel myself in this outfit. Mission accomplished!

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.

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.
