Coming In Hot!!

With this weather, who doesn’t need a faux fur coat?? I mean it is perfect! This coat is from Baciano, if you have not checked them out, you should! They have some stylish on trend pieces for everyone, from dresses to jackets to sweater. This faux fur coat looks great with almost anything. I paired it here with a black Agnes & Dora dress and tan knee boots. Let’s not forget the accessories, which can make any outfit. Sunglasses, earrings (that give a pop of color), and a clutch that compliments the necklace perfectly (which was a gift from my future mother in law, all the way from Australia). How would you wear a faux fur coat?

Wifey to Be

Wifey to be….that’s me! Wedding prep is definitely underway and September will be here before you know it. Planning on doing a monthly wedding update here on the blog starting in February. So stay tuned!! Now on to this post…

Freezing temperatures and snow covered ground. Who is ready for spring? I have had my fix of the cold and I am almost ready to see it go. Although I do love cold weather clothing, this getting up and wondering if the roads are drivable is not idea. Anyway, I am loving this outfit I have on in this post. My puffy vest collection has been on full rotation during the cold months. I paired this one with leggings that have leather accents, my black wifey sweatshirt (which is most important), a leopard print scarf and tank, and ducks boots (which I am truly thankful for in this weather). What is your favorite snow day outfit? Shop mine below.

Playing Tourist

Playing tourist is one of my favorite things. Who is with me? This time I was playing tourist in New Orleans for New Year’s and Ben’s birthday. We did enjoye the local food, such as gumbo, red beans and rice, and jambalaya to name a few. If you want to taste some of the best local food try Mother’s Restaurant, but fyi there is always a line out the door so get there early. We visited the popular places such as Bourbon Street and the French Quarter, but what we really loved was Frenchmen Street. This is the place you want to go if you want to hear the iconic New Orleans jazz and blues sounds of the city. Plus more locals hangout there. You won’t be disappointed. If you are in the city I definitely suggest taking a swamp tour, or a Steamboat Natchez jazz cruise. There are waterways all over New Orleans. Also, don’t forget the biegnets at Cafe Du Monde. What are you favorite NOLA spots?

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.

It’s Winter

It is officially winter and although it might not feel like it, a couple days ago it did. Complete with snow! How do you dress when it’s a cold winters day? Well…..fleece leggings and over the knee boots of course. I paired these two pieces with a long sweater, a brightly colored wool coat and my favorite Scarab Beetle scarf. I finished the look with this hand-made leather cross-body that tied everything together. What is you favorite winter look? Shop mine below.

Over-Sized Sweater

When you have one or two warm days in December you take advantage of them. The best way to do that is with an oversized sweaters. I love a good roomy one, they are so comfortable, right? They go great with skinny jeans or leggings. I paired mine with jeans, leopard print flats to give it a little bit of flair (if you have been reading or following for awhile you know anything leopard print is all me), and to complete the look I chose one of may favorite crossbodies. I kept the colors neutral so each piece can be worn as separates are paired with others to create a whole new look. What’s you favorite oversized sweater look?

Holiday Look #1

Shop: Blouse |  Pants |  Clutch | Heels | Earrings | Bracelet (one, two) | Lipstick

It’s holiday time! So what are you going to wear? Let me help. From now until the holidays I will be doing holiday looks on the blog that are easy to recreate. Some casual, some dressy and some in-between.

My first holiday look starts with a simple black skinny jean or a skinny pant, something that we all have in our closet. I paired it with a cranberry or merlot colored silk blouse that has sheer cape sleeves. This statement piece is too die for and will be on heavy rotation this season. I’m pretty sure this color is the color of the holidays. I added leopard print heels for texture and flair. So if you are looking for a holiday outfit you can wear to work as well as attend a social function, after hitting the grind, this is my outfit of choice.

The holidays are coming do you have do you have your outfits ready? Shop one of my favorites below.
