It’s Pretty Much Sweater Weather

Winter has definitely set in! Who is cold?? When temperatures are below freezing, you have to dress the part. How do you do that? An oversized cowl neck sweater is perfect, as well as warm, pairing it with leggings that have leather accents so the outfit can stand out. I accessorized with black suede booties, a leather cross body, and red lipstick to give a pop of color. How do you dress on you cold weather days? I hope warmly! Shop my warm weather outfit below.

Colorful Transition Outfit

A bold color always makes a statement! Color is great for the Spring season, so I added lots of it to this transition outfit. All through the calendar says it’s Spring we all know that does not mean the temperature says it is. So when it is cold in the morning and warmer in the afternoon I like to opt for layers like I did below.

I paired a cream sweater dress (similar here) with a bright fuchsia cardigan. I added further color to the outfit by choosing navy leggings, c/o Comm-Ci , a company that specializes in chic, comfortable, well fitting leggings. Then accessorized with fun tassel earrings that screams I’M CRAZY FOR COLOR!! 🙂 I finished the outfit with tan booties, my favorite handbag, and a watch to match.

What is you favorite way to add color to an outfit?

Blushing

I am holding out for Spring! What about you? Want a transitional Spring look? Try this one below. I paired black leggings that have leather accents, with a striped ruffled blouse. Layered with a blush crepe topper, similar and leopard print heels to add a little different flair.  I accessorized the look with a gold jewelry (necklace, watch), black sunnies, and my favorite tote. This look is super easy to recreate. Many of these items can probably be found in your closet.

Thanksgiving Outfit Inspiration

Thanksgiving is around the corner. Who is as excited as I am? More importantly, who already has their Thanksgiving outfit picked out? If your do not let me help. This stylish outfit is easy to recreate. I paired this great striped asymmetrical belted dress from Zaful (found here) with yoga leggings. Zaful has a wide variety of clothing for women at very affordable prices. They also have free shipping over $30. I further accessorized my outfit with some of my favorite India Hicks products (necklace and purse), if you have never heard of India Hicks check out the website here. I finished the look with a pair of black booties, affordable pair here, and pulled it all together with chic pearl earrings  and some sunnies.

The leggings are from MD Shapewear, which offer 360 degrees of firm compression and trimming action that focus on your waist, midsection, hips, thighs and butt. MD’s leggings for women reshape your figure giving you a smooth, sleek look, which is great for Thanksgiving Day if you eat too much (which I usually do). Their design is seamless, meaning that you will not see those awful lines through other clothing, which makes them idea for many activities such as working out or socializing.

The Friday Five 4/8/16

Happy Friday! Who is ready for the weekend? I sure am. After weeks of traveling I am excited to actually be at home for the weekend for once so I can catch up and get organized. I have some great products for the Friday Five. Check them out below.

Looking for a great summer short? I am loving these Simplicity Elastic Drawstring Summer Shorts (found here). They are stylish and fashionable but will not break the budget. The fit is perfect and accents curves at all the right places. High quality fabric that can be dressed up or down depending on your shoes and top. Comes in a variety of colors. I am thinking of ordering another pair. They are probably going to be my favorite shorts of the summer. Some other shorts I love for the summer are here and here
If you are a girly girl, I have the shorts for you. These Simplicity Floral Lace Shorts (found here) are very dainty and airy. Great for the hot summer. The fit is good. Many patterns to choose from so you can definitely find ones you like. Since they are very girly, they are great for date night or time out with the girls. Dress them up with some heels and a cute blouse. Definitely worth the price because they are not a budget buster. Other picks for girly shorts can be found here and here.
I am always looking for new workout clothes. So these Simplicity Women’s Gym Yoga Shorts (found here) are great. They fit true to size with no bunching and are very comfortable. Good for working out and everyday wear, like running errands. They come in multiple colors so you are sure to find ones you like. Would definitely recommend them and I would order more. Other activewear shorts that I love are these and these
If you are like me than you are always look for great fitting leggings. I found the ones for you. These Simplicity Seamless Capri Leggings (found here) are the ones you are looking for. Us girls are always searching for a good fit that stays up all day. Well these are it. No more pulling them up when you get up to walk around and no sagging in the middle. They come in many different colors to fit your style needs. Great for everyday wear, plus they are not see through like many leggings. Some other leggings that I love can be found here and here
A piece of jewelry that you need to add to your collection is this Benevolence LA Water Droplet Necklace (found here). This necklace is a stunner and literally can go with any outfit. It is simple and will accent your outfits perfectly. Not only is it fashionable but it is a necklace with a cause. A percent of each necklace purchased  goes to fund clean sustainable water systems in Africa. I always love to support a great cause and to get a beautiful necklace for doing so is well worth it. Check out the rest of Benevolence LA’s story here.

Poncho

As temperatures continue to get colder and the holiday season approaches I am always looking for stylish ways to keep warm. A poncho is a great way to add a little flare to a neutral outfit.

This reversible poncho adds color and style, as well as works as a cover up for those cold and windy days. I paired it with black leggings ( I call these my fancy leggings because they have a leather strip down the side), a simple black v-neck shirt, and black booties. The poncho can compliment any outfit, such as jeans, a skirt or even a dress. It is definitely going to be a fall and winter staple in my wardrobe. What is a staple in your closet? I have linked similar items below. Hope you enjoy! And Happy Thanksgiving!
