How to Style a Coat to Wear All Day

Is anyone else always cold? I mean especially at work. It’s like they have the thermostat on Antartica. This is why I always have a coat on. I have become pretty good at styling my coats with my outfits. The worst is when you have to wear some random coat that doesn’t match because it is freezing, am I right?? So I like finding outerwear that is neutral, that I can layer over almost any color. Investing in neutrals allows you to wear it with many different outfits. I styled this blush neutral crepe coat with an ivory tunic and pleated striped skirt. I accessorized with leopard, which has become a trend in my post. But I do keep many neutrals on hand to bundle up.
Hope you had a Happy Holiday and are looking forward to 2019.

Fancy for New Year’s

The holiday’s are here and 2019 is around the corner. But before we get into the new year we have to celebrate NYE, right? What are you wearing for NYE? Me…a dress of course. This little black one to be exact. Things with sequins are really on trend right now, so this dress is perfect for this time of the year to add some sparkle. Living somewhere cold you always need a blazer, Like this velvet one. If you know me you know I always like a bit of color in my attire, so I opted for a dark pink/cranberry color in my earrings, lipstick and clutch. I think this makes the outfit stand out a little more. What are your NYE plans?  Shop NYE outfit inspiration below.

Happy New Year!!!

If You Have Sliver Shoes

If you have sliver shoes….you should definitely rock them! Especially with a leopard faux fur coat. This coat is amazing not only is it stylish, it is super warm and affordable (under $50). It goes with almost any color, considering leopard is a neutral, but I love to wearing it with black….. like I did with this outfit. The black makes the prints in the coat and purse pop, as well as the other colors in the outfit. This purse….I can’t say enough about it. I get compliments on it all the time. It is perfect if you want to add a little color to your outfit. I found it for 40% off (here). And this hat, I thought I wasn’t a hat person but….I official am. A great wool hat is a must have for winter. What is your must have for winter? Shop this look below.

A Little Bit of Leopard Goes A Long Way


Well…..My posts are starting to have a theme. And that theme is Leopard! Is there a crazy leopard lady? Like a crazy cat lady. If so….I am totally in! I do it tastefully, at least I think so. I like to add my leopard to solids like I did in this outfit. I paired it with faux leather leggings and a tank. And how cute is this cardigan sweater that was knitted especially for me? (I tagged a couple cute ones that are similar). I accessorized with multi-colored resin tassel earrings, and of course My favorite leopard booties and clutch. What are your perfect little touches that you add to most outfits? Shop this look below.

Baby it’s cold outside, no it’s really cold outside!! With all the controversy going on with this song I probably should have named this post something else, but…..Nope! 🙂 It’s like freezing and feeling like winter or at least the holidays. When there are cooler temperatures, what do you do? Grab you best blogger girlfriends and talk about the perfect cold weather outfit. Don’t tell me that we are the only ones that do this?!?
My go to for fidget temps is a faux fur vest and a sweater dress (hey that rhymes, lol!). I mean you can’t go wrong with either. And since it is so cold make sure you pair them with leggings and over the  knee boots. These boots are a staple in each of our closets (as you can see by the picture). You also can’t go wrong with a pair of skinny jeans, a wool coat and a hat to match. What is your staple?

Holiday Gift Guide for the Hostess

 It is all about the holiday parties this time of year and the holiday hostess gift. If you are invited to a party, the first rule is to never show up empty handed! So what do you bring?? Wine or bourbon is always a simple go to, that I am sure will be much appreciated. But if you want to step it up a notch get to know your hostess (and in this case) find out what she into to. What is her style? Is she a home decor girl?  If so I suggest this popular book or these unique coasters. Is she a wino? (And I mean that in the nicest possible way, considering I am a member of this group). Try this cute initialed wine stopper or these wine chillers. A candle or a cute coffee mug is always a quick and easy gift. I am loving this candle right now and this personalized mug. You also can never go wrong with chocolate. What ever you bring your hostess I am sure she will love it. Shop some of my picks below.
