# 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!
Happy T B T! Clearly I am doing ‘Winter‘ cleaning when it comes to my iPhoto Library because I found this shoot from back in October and realized I had never shared it! A little winter white with my favorite skinny jeans + my favorite cozy blanket scarf (aka the most popular scarf on Pinterest)? Too goodnot to share!
What’s crazy is seeing how different I look since these were taken! Fun Fact, since October I have lost over 25 pounds…I feel like I am back to myself again after gaining 20 pounds since moving to LA (what can I say…In-N-Out is addictive :p) But I am back on track and happy to look back at these photos to see how far I’ve come 😉
My look is simple — C O Z Y to the M A X! Blanket Scarves have been my obsession since September (if you missed my post, some of my favorites are HERE) and they continue to be my easy go-to every morning! This maroon floppy hat has also been a fall into winter favorite of mine.
T B T! Nothing I love more than a colorful throwback like this one from Palm Springs! I bought this Choies Paisely Dress over the summer and fell in love instantly with the print. I discovered this print was the perfect one for a Palm Springs weekend getaway (and now I am simply dying to go back :p
I paired this dress with my summer signature bag — White Gucci Soho Tote and then simple nude espadrille wedges (they go with everything <3) Even though it is fall, I fully intend on wearing these pieces here in LA all the time — why not right? 🙂
This is what I am wearing to the office today…NOT! Trust me I am counting down the seconds till I could slip on some shorts and sandals once again, but for now I will have to relive some sunny moments with these photos from one of my outfit shoots in Florida (if you missed my previous Florida posts check them out here + here). The weather was perfect, not too hot…not too cold, just right…The perfect weather to mix a cropped sweater, shorts + of course sandals (how great are these white ankle strap sandals…I can’t wait to wear them all spring/summer long, PS you can get them for under $50 below)!
This white sweater was a staple of mine in Florida because it would be brisk in the morning, warm in the afternoon and then slightly cooler in the evening so this sweater came with me everywhere (a gal has to be prepared at all times :p).My accessories were staples for my trip as well. Simple white sandals can be worn with jeans, shorts, skirts or dresses, so they are a great option to bring when traveling to a warmer climate (which is pretty much anywhere other than New York #GetMeOutOfHere). My bag is from Coach a few years back but I found two similar cross body options here + here. And of course some bling is always in order…I layer this skull necklace over everything + yes, I am totally obsessed with these blue Ray Bans which were a Birthday gift from my parents right before I left for my trip.
So in actuality I am bundled up in layers…warm pants, sweaters, vests and more…pretty much yesterday’s outfit post but hey it’s fun to have a little ‘throwback‘ moment every now and then right? :p| Click To Shop + Share My Look |
They don’t call it ‘Throwback Thursday‘ for nothing…in between watching ‘Best New Restaurant’ on Bravo and getting my camera cleared out for my weekend getaway I somehow ended up going through my entire iPhoto library and came upon this little ensemble…shot back in…drum roll please…July! Yes, July…see that’s my problem ladies and gents because I shoot new looks all of the time some outfits get left in the archives waiting to be discovered and finally this is my oldest outfit sitting in my photo library and it is seeing the light of day! This outfit is so old that my little sister shot this look (she retired from doing my photos shortly after…my brother has shot my photos ever since…keeping it the family ya know 😉 )This outfit is as simple as it gets…a simple LBD paired with bright and bold accessories…what else could a girl ask for? I am pretty sure I got this dress from Old Navy (I honestly can’t even find this dress in my closet…I looked for it while writing this post and I already lost it…hopefully to be seen again once the summer comes…maybe it’s just playing hide + seek haha!). I found similar options below from American Eagle + Athleta.
The right bling can truly dress up any outfit so this look included a few key pieces of statement jewelry…similar styles shoppable below <3
And we can’t forget…the shoes + bag…these shoes were a birthday gift to myself last year because come on try and tell me these aren’t ‘Carrie Bradshaw esq‘ 😉 LOVE these beauties…similar styles below along with my Michael Kors handbag. And this year’s birthday is bound to be the best yet…stay tuned for what I have planned by adding me on SnapChat ‘MissyOnMadison‘ <3
I seriously can’t wait to be in some warmer weather to rock a look like this again #SummerHurryUp #NoMoreSnow
