# T B T to Snowy Days in N Y! I was going through my iPhoto Library and look what I found…this shoot from last winter in NY! It’s kinda great to see snow without having to have experienced it in such a long time. While it makes for a gorgeous backdrop, I used to freeze my a** off when shooting in it (#goodtimes — my poor brother wanted to kill me haha)! Because although it was the dead of winter with wind chills that felt like we were in the negatives, I still opted to wear skirts + cute little outfits that weren’t necessarily seasonally or weather wise appropriate :p Oops…
This winter look is actually perfect for LA considering the weather in NY would no way tolerate bare legs haha! I love the color maroon for winter and honestly, it appears to flatter most skin tones which is awesome…so a Maroon Skater Skirt + Faux Fur Vest were the perfect combo. P.S. I am actually selling my vest on Poshmark since I rarely wear it here :p
And…I layered a White Cable Knit Sweater to keep warm (not that LA calls for this…but I still wear it from time to time in the early morning).
Tan Leather Booties are great for winter in LA, NY + beyond! They match with everything and are ideal to dress up or dress down whether you are wearing them for work or play. Mine are from C. Wonder (sadly no longer available :/ but I linked to similar ones below) Here + Here!
Maroon aka my new favorite color for fall (besides blue…pretty apparent with how often I wear it :p). Since Thanksgiving is this week, it’s about time I take a break from my love of neon and embrace the darker hues…along with that, embrace booties, sweaters (like this cozy Uniqlo one) + floppy hats. So what’s my ‘statement‘ item in this festive look (totally holiday dinner appropriate)…this fab Vera Bradley leopard satchel.My booties are from NYLA, but I found a similar pair on sale from Kohls (+ even more on sale during Black Friday sales) here! These are great to wear to Thanksgiving dinner (or if you are like my friends, Thanksgiving Eve…girl’s night out what what!)
Fun prints are always ‘in‘ no matter what the season…this leopard satchel from Vera Bradley is the perfect fall handbag and will make a statement at your Thanksgiving gathering! Plus it comes in a variety of prints and colors!
Mondays are made for…new spring outfit inspo. I hope everyone had a great weekend (I know I sure did!) and had a Happy Mother’s Day! I spent my weekend embracing the fabulous weather and beginning my search for perfect clothes for my upcoming trip to LA! It is quite challenging to find trendy, sexy yet cute and casual picks that are ideal for a little getaway…sooo safe to say my search rages on…
Happy Wednesday Loves! Usually the holiday season makes us think of glitz and glam…now don’t get me wrong, I love some sparkle just like the next gal but sometimes when you are around close family or friends all you need to wear for the holidays is a classic sweater…a cable knit sweater! Sorry but I never really got into the whole ‘ugly sweater‘ deal for the holiday season…I opt for a more trendy yet timeless sweater…the cable knit sweater. I scored this one at Old Navy and I wear it all the time…whether it is dressed up or dressed down, a cable knit sweater is an essential for every gal no matter what age. Because I hate wearing pants…yes I said it…I hate pants haha I paired this cable knit sweater with a maroon skater skirt (which can be worn year round, not just for the holiday season).I dressed the look up a bit with my black suede knee high boots which I constantly get asked where they are from…well the answer is H&M…2 years ago so unfortunately they are no longer there but I found similar ones on sale now for under $100 at Lord & Taylor here.And I am bringing leopard back this holiday season with this Betsey Johnson bag (similar style from Ralph Lauren here). I love wearing little hints of leopard from time to time…especially when the hues match so perfectly like they do in this ensemble. It wouldn’t be a true street style look without some killer sunnies…I never knew J Crew had such great sunglasses but I fell in love with these beauties the second I spotted them in store + on sale (the word sale always helps determine a good buy haha)!This is one of my favorite looks so far this month…it’s cute, simple and also kind of sexy by adding the knee high boots 😉 So you can wear this around the fam and also out for date night…win/win!| Click To Shop This Look |
Happy Wednesday Loves! I am a bit obsessed with this outfit A) Because Sarah shot the photos and made me look pretty decent…I’m always wary when anyone other than my brother or sister shoot me, but I think she did a fabulous job & B) Because I love this ‘Don’t Be Basic‘ graphic tee for fall! I got this tee at Target but I found a similar one from Revolve Clothing. My faux leather jacket (which I have had since high school) is LC By Lauren Conrad at Kohls…can you tell yet that I am a huge fan of her collection? I found a similar one from Old Navy (have to keep the low price point!).
Now to break down my fall accessories…My Louis Vuitton Speedy Bag was one of the best Christmas gifts I ever got…from when I was a freshman in college. I got hooked on designer bags at a young age and have been collecting ever since…my closet loves it, my wallet not so much. I spotted these Report Shoes booties on clearance at Marshalls a month ago and knew instantly they were going to be my must have fall shoe…comfortable, affordable and stylish…you can’t beat that combination.
Kendra Scott jewelry was at the Reward Style party during NYFW and gifted us bloggers this fabulous drusy ring. It’s edgy and fun…my go to piece when it comes to standing out!
My maroon skater skirt is from the fab team at Pink Basis…it’s no longer available but I spotted a similar one at Target. Maroon is one of my favorite hues for fall!
