A Coat for this Weather

Hello there!

I feel the need to rant about how cold it has been the last couple of days. I guess I should be thankful that it is not snowing, so I guess I shouldn’t complain so much. With this cold weather, I have been living in this coat. Honestly, I wear it everywhere, everyday, all the time. I wanted this coat so bad because I have been into the athleisure look and wearing this with sneakers is my favorite look, especially for the weekend. img_8901img_8903img_8922img_8923img_8934img_8946img_8950img_8953

I received this coat for Christmas, but if you are looking for a similar coat I found one here and here.

A Pale Pink Blazer

Hi Friends,

Sorry there wasn’t a post yesterday, that was completely a mistake. That aside, I am here today with a new post 🙂  img_8748_fotorimg_8796_fotorimg_8805_fotorimg_8791_fotorimg_8800_fotorimg_8861_fotor

When I planned this outfit, I was going for a simple casual Valentine’s Day look. Once I saw the pictures I noticed that this would be a great outfit to wear to work, if you want to be festive on Valentine’s Day. Do you all do that? Sometimes it brings a little fun to what can be a monotonous work day. I am sure I’ve expressed how much I love leopard, it goes with everything and is hands down my favorite print.

These are my favorite jeans, and I found this blazer at TJ Maxx. This shirt was given to me by my little brother for Christmas, from The Limited which is no longer with us 🙁 I am sad about them going out of business, but glad I got this cute shirt at an amazing price!

Trying New Things

Happy Tuesday Friends,

Today’s outfit is a simple one. I love love love outfits that you can just throw on and still feel like you are in your pjs. Typically, I prefer a more structured looked and when I found these pants until I walked out the house for this shoot I was unsure about these pants. I decided to take a risk. Can you tell I am not much of a risk taker? When I decided to wear these pants I though to myself They are cute they look great with this shirt and decided to go with it.

I had to remind myself, it is just clothes and fashion is meant to be fun and creative so lets plan and have fun with it. img_8272_fotorimg_8235_fotorimg_8284_fotorimg_8240_fotorimg_8286_fotorimg_8261_fotorimg_8264_fotor

Tip: If you are wearing an oversized shirt and less form fitting bottoms tuck the top in slightly to create more shape to avoid looking like you are wearing a sack 🙂

Stylish in the Office

Happy Thursday Friends!

I have another outfit suitable for a business casual look. So for you who work a 9-5 this is perfect for you. img_7828_fotorimg_7660_fotorimg_7789_fotorimg_7658_fotorimg_7745_fotorimg_7661_fotor

Funny story about this outfit, I actually wore it on my graduation day. Back in December I graduated with my Master’s degree, it was freezing outside and I know I didn’t want to wear heels so this is what I came up with. I was comfortable all day.

I found this dress on the sale rack at Banana Republic. I love their dresses, they are the most comfortable, never to short and cute for business attire.

I hope you all have an amazing weekend, I would love to hear all about it. Leave me a comment letting me know what you are doing.

My Favorite Jeans

Happy Tuesday Friends, today I wanted to talk with you all about my favorite pair of jeans. First let me say, I don’t have a lot of jeans. Actually, I hate jeans. I have never found them to be comfortable, I’ve been on the search for the perfect pair of jeans for years, and have never found them… until now. When I was younger, everything was too short, now I have to find something that flatters my legs. I have found a pair of jeans that are comfortable. Sometimes, I even reach for them first when I am preparing an outfit (which never happens). I am sure you all have seen them a million times, but it is because I love them. Enough about how much I love these jeans. You will never believe, they are from the Gap. I have been a lover of the Gap for years but never purchased jeans from there. Until now! I love them because they are a higher waist, are a solid color, long enough. In my opinion I photography sort of short, but I am actually 5’8″.

Let me know if here are any jeans you would recommend. I am actually looking to purchase another pair and before I buy another pair of these jeans I would like to see what is out there.

I hope you all had a great weekend!!!!

Restyled a Comfy Sweater

Greetings! I have been under the weather for about a week now. I am so over it!!! I can admit I am dramatic when I am sick. I feel like I am not going to make it. Thankfully, I am on the other side of this cold and I sure it is not fatal, so life will be back to normal soon. If you remember a few months ago I wore this sweater in this post. This sweater is so warm and cozy. I love to wear it around the house, to work and on the weekends. I find blue to be a neutral color in my wardrobe, so this sweater goes with everything. I lucked up and found it at Burlington’s which means it was affordable! I have had these shoes for a few years now, here is a very similar pair. If you notice, I like to buy quality clothes that last though the seasons. I don’t tend to gravitate to trendy pieces, because I like to have my clothes for a few years. If you are looking for something similar I will try to link something close. Oh and these are my favorite Jeans again 🙂

 

 

Keeping Warm

img_7401_fotorimg_7309_fotorimg_7343_fotorimg_7346_fotorimg_7405_fotor

Goodness Guys, it has been so cold lately! I think the weather is going to be in the 60s for one day… then right back to the 30s. Needless to say I have been living in my puffer coats lately. I actually got this one for Christmas. I love the color and the length. Clearly, on this particular day it was cold and windy which is why my hair is all over the place.

I just bought these boots in a flash sale on Hautelook/Nordstrom Rack. I have been on the hunt for a pair of navy blue over the knee boots, I found a pair at DSW but they made my thighs look huge (I am dramatic but it was not flattering). I was nervous to buy these expecting the same result. To my surprise they worked. A trick I have learned over the years, if you art attempting to slim your leg line keep to a monochromatic color scheme on your bottom half. Being that I have on dark jeans and dark boots it worked. A plus for these shoes is how comfortable and they keep you warm!

Loving Flannel

Hi Friends, as you can see it snowed. Can you tell I am not very enthusiastic about it. I am not a fan of the snow or the cold weather. Naturally, I am always freezing and when it is cold my body does not agree. Today was about 20 degrees and I thought I would have to wear a large coat on my way to this shoot, but surprisingly I was okay to walk to the car and get the shots. I have loved flannel for a long time now, but wearing it under a thick sweater was new for me. I needed the warmth so I went with it.. and I was comfortable. I will be stocking up on more of these little gems to keep me warm the rest of this winter.
