We are at the halfway mark…it is Wednesday and the weekend can’t come soon enough. I’m not sure if it’s the weather or if I have just been completely overwhelmed lately, but I have been so exhausted to the point where I find myself half asleep when attempting to blog (sorry if I begin rambling and not making any sense :p) When organizing my iPhoto library (one of the many things on my to-do list) I came across this look shot pre-winter snow and forgot how much I LOVE a black floppy hat.
In the spirit of Coachella this weekend, I definitely plan on incorporating this hat into future spring looks…because this is my mild version of a flower crown haha :p Speaking of Coachella, I really wish I was going to be there this weekend, but no…I get to stay here in rainy NYC #SoNotFair
It’s the calm before the storm…literally…A huge snow storm is heading our way and I am so not thrilled about it (why couldn’t I be in Disneyalready…only a few more days till I’m in the ‘Happiest Place On Earth’ woohoo) anyway…back to the issue at hand…this horrible snow storm. A) Not digging 2-3 feet of snowB) My commute to work will be hell…the LIRR never functions the second there is a hint of bad weather…it’s my daily torture (yes, it’s that bad).
Ok, let me stop ranting about how much I am dreading this storm and let’s distract ourselves with today’s outfit details (outfit inspo always makes everything better…no?) 😉
So yes…today’s look was shot back in October…maybe September…definitely in warmer weather when there was leaves falling from the trees and a crisp breeze in the air. I’ve had a thing for Olive Green this season…especially Camo prints and puffer vests so it was a no brainer that these two pieces would go hand in hand…toned down with a gray cable knit sweater (all pieces are on sale now btw!)
Now to break down the shoe + bag game…
I have had these taupe suede booties for years now…they are super comfortable, match with everything and add that like extra ‘oomph’ every winter look needs. My bag has been seen on the blog a few times over the past few weeks (If you missed it see it here + here). I LOVE this Kelsi Dagger leopard satchel…it was a great Last Call Neiman Marcus find (two similar Kelsi Dagger styles here+ here).
I love all of the color hues in this look…we have taupe, gray, olive green and now…a touch of brown with this Caravelle NY Watch (I love it so much I want it in another color now). I have become quite the fan of leather wrap watches like this one…especially when it’s thin and easy to mix and match with any bling!
On a side note, I will be sharing my packing guide for Disney on the blog soon (you know…once I start packing of course…I’m kinda last minute and pack everything including the kitchen sink…oops #HelpMePack #MustBringEverything) P.S. You can follow my Florida vacation on instagram @MissyOnMadison!
And….this will be me all day today and tomorrow…getting snuggly and warm during the snow storm…supposedly it’s bound to be the worst NY has had in years…great 😉 Also, I switched up my site a little bit with changing my slider…thoughts?
I think it’s about time for a new giveaway don’t you? Well I needed to bring a little excitement to the cold month of January and what better way to do that than by teaming up with Kameleonz…a fun new brand of sunnies that get this…are interchangeable to match your outfit! What fashionista doesn’t love to have her accessories match her look…including her sunglasses!
When Kameleonz reached out to me about collaborating and hosting a giveaway I had to say YES! I am all about accessories and have become increasingly obsessed with colored sunnies like this green pair named ‘Bali‘ (if only they would actually bring me to Bali…haha!). So read on to see how you can snag a pair (we can be #Twinning!…yes I am such a dork and use that word…oops :p)Before I dish the deets on how to snag a pair of these sunnies let’s break down this winter look (see I am slowly but surely wearing winter ensembles although I am constantly dreaming of warmer weather…I am in the midst of trying to plan a warm weather vacation…stay tuned…)I LOVE a faux fur vest as we all know so naturally I needed a gray one like this one that’s retailing for under $50 (I simply couldn’t survive without it duh!) Pair it with a chic white button down blouse and some simple leggings and you are ready for work or play.
Ok…I have become OBSESSED with over the knee boots…I was unsure at first but once I found these beauties at Nordstrom Rack I fell in love… (similar from Light In The Box here). I think slipping on a pair of over the knee boots instantly adds a sense of sexy and really pulls a look together.
I had to rock a little leopard print once again (this Kelsi Dagger bag has been a current crush of mine).
Now to dish on these awesome sunnies…What is cool about these Kameleonz sunnies is that the side pieces are interchangeable. So the sunglasses are sold in sets and can have the side pieces changed amongst 3 different colors to in a way ‘reinvent‘ their look to match your look!Want to win a pair of your own?

But first…coffee (scratch that…to be quite honest I start each and every day with a Venti iced green tea from Starbucks…unsweetened of course…typical white girl…oops) but I mean coffee as in ‘Coffee Shop‘, the great brand who makes this stylish leopard coat I am wearing today! This past week has been the true beginning of winter weather. Snow on the ground, a chill in the air and wind that practically swept me right off my feet…this weather calls for a warm, cozy and fashionable coat…in comes Coffee Shop.
This brand reached out to me right before the Holiday Season and I couldn’t wait to work with them. They make everything from Moto Jackets, to Pea Coats, to Wool Coats and Bomber Jackets…they are now my one stop shop for unique and trendy coats that won’t break the bank (which is always in style in my book!)
P.S. Coffee Shop wants you guys to give them a shot and receive 20% off while doing it! Just use the code ‘MISSY20‘ at checkout!Naturally when they told me to pick my favorite I had to opt for a little lady like leopard 😉 I always want to be a little feisty and I added to this sassy look by adding even MOREleopard with this great Kelsi Dagger leopard leather bag. And call me crazy but when I think ‘leopard‘ I think sexy and with sexy in winter comes…over the knee boots…aka these black suede over the knee boots that I scored for under $30 (here)…yes ladies you heard me under $30 at Target…Seriously this was one of my most exciting buys within the past few weeks! So while I am not a fan of the cold temperatures I must admitt it was kinda fun to have a little white snow on the ground while shooting looks over the weekend. And yes…I was freezing while shooting each and every outfit…at one point my poor brother’s hands turned pink from holding the camera out in the cold…but nonetheless new outfits were shot, and Missy is still able to share her stylish journey…no matter what the weather outside may be!| Click To Shop My Look |
