Baby It’s Cold Outside

We all know my relationship with the winter season.  It’s not just the gloomy, snowy weather, the inability to tan by a pool, or checking the weather every day to make sure no snow is in the forecast that will cause an inconvenience.  What it’s really about  is not being able to show off a killer outfit because you have to worry about bundling up.  Luckily, this winter season I don’t have to worry about hiding a great outfit because my new coat makes a statement and also keeps me so warm.  Keep on reading to see how I’m keeping warm and stylish in these freezing New England temperatures.

Santa Claus was right on the money when he left under the Christmas tree this Sam Edelman leopard printed coat.  Who doesn’t love to wear head to toe leopard?  Leopard is one of my favorite fashion prints so to have a coat featuring this pattern is everything I  could ask for.  The wool fabric makes it super warm and cozy, plus the elastic like band on the bottom makes it cinch just above my knees, giving the jacket a perfect silhouette.

As for jeans, I’m wearing my Just Black Denim brand distressed skinny jeans.  A classic go to pair of jeans in my wardrobe lately because of the color and high waisted fit.  Also, the cropped ankle lets me show off a fabulous pair of boots.

Speaking of a fabulous pair of boots, I’m loving my Lord and Taylor brand black booties.  The all black color, buckles, and stud details are all around edgy and I love it.

Since you can’t dare to go outside without some sort of scarf, I usually wear my simple black scarf from The Paper Store.  I just loop it around my neck and the soft fabric makes me feel toasty.

I wish I could say that the Michael Kors bag I’m holding is mine, but sadly it’s my mom’s.  I helped pick out this black envelope style bag for my mom for Christmas but now I’m wishing I picked it out for myself instead.  I love the edginess of the bag.  It kinda has all the same details featured on my shoes.  Although this bag isn’t mine it looks amazing paired with my outfit, so I couldn’t miss the photo opp.

As much as I love my coat, I’m still wishing for a short, mild, snowless winter.  But for now all my layers will have to do.  Let me know in the comments below how you stay stylish and warm on those cold winter days.

Camo Cool

We all have that one article of clothing, one color, one pattern, and so on that we are just attracted to, you know that feeling whenever you walk by it you need to buy it even though you have several versions of it in your closet.  For me, that’s anything camo, especially camo jackets.  So of course on one of my recent shopping trips, a camo patterned jacket caught my eye and I had to purchase it to hang along with my 3 other camo jackets, oh well.  For me, camo is a neutral pattern, it never goes out of style and looks great with everything.  So keep on reading to see how I style a classic camo jacket.

On my recent shopping trip to Lord and Taylor’s, my eye was completely drawn to this camo jacket by Design Lab.  I mean it makes sense because it features tons of pockets with stud embellishments. Plus, the loose, oversized fit makes it great to layer over sweaters for those cold winter days.  No matter how hard I tried to fight the urge to buy this jacket, I couldn’t resist and glad I couldn’t because I’ve been getting lots of use out of my jacket.

Like I mentioned above, you can wear whatever you want under this jacket, but today I just chose my simple black loose fitting tank top from Cotton On.  Having tank tops like this in your wardrobe, especially in neutral colors like white and black is super handy because you never know when you will need them for layering.

As you can tell by all my blog posts, Zara denim is the best denim, so naturally I am wearing these skinny jeans from Zara.  I love the deep gray color and subtle distressed detailing.

Regarding jewelry, I am wearing my favorite choker that I bought at a local art festival over the summer.  The gemstone choker by Omi by Lise is a beautiful white shade with different pops of vibrant colors.

As for shoes, I am wearing my heeled taupe booties from the brand Report.  I featured these studded boots a few times on my blog last year, but it wasn’t until I rediscovered them this year that I completely fell in love with them again and have been wearing them non stop.

So that concludes yet another style post.  Let me know in the comments below what is that one piece of clothing that you always have to have, even though you really don’t need because you have something similar in your closet.  Talk to you all soon!

Pearls & Denim

In the fashion world, denim and pearls are the hottest combo right now.  Just think of denim and pearls as your next peanut butter and jelly, oil and vinegar, tomato soup and grilled cheese, and so on.  Insert whatever food combo or combo in general that goes great together to understand the point I am trying to make, denim and pearls are the next big thing.  Now a days, you can find this stylish combo on a jacket, blouse, or pair of jeans and in today’s post it’s all about my pearl studded denim jacket.

Before, I get into the whole point of this post, which is my pearl embellished jean jacket, I have to give my metallic silver flared pants from Zara some love.  I mean how great are these pants? I love the flared, palazzo like fit.  Plus, the metallic, shiny color makes a statement for sure.  The best part about these pants is you can either dress them up or down. When I want to achieve more of a dressier look, I usually pair these trousers with a blazer, but today for my more dressed down look, it’s all about the denim jacket.

These fun pants, also features this “garbage bag waist,” hard to explain the origin on this style, but just looking at how the waist ties, you will get it.  Anyway, I decided to show off the waist by just wearing a simple, fitted white tank top from Zara.  We all know how much I love these tank tops, especially for layering.

So, for the moment you been waiting for…my denim jacket.  I purchased this bad boy months ago at Marshalls.  The jacket is by the brand Honey Punch and features this gorgeous pearl studding throughout the jacket.  It’s something about the feminine pearl embellishment attached to distressed denim that makes it super eye catching and trendy. Plus, I love the way the white pearls and denim color looks paired against my silver pants.

As for shoes, I am still trying to find the best types of shoes to pair with palazzo pants and when it comes to these pants, I love wearing my black flats with the buckle and stud details by the brand Dolce Vita.  These flats are perfect when you are looking to add a little edge to any outfit.

It’s funny how only a few pieces (in this case only an embellished denim jacket, metallic pants, and studded flats) can make you feel like a million bucks.  Whenever I wear this outfit, I feel super fancy. Cue the phrase “you fancy, huh?”  And my response to that is yes in this outfit, you better believe it.  Talk to you all in my next post!
