Comfy Casual

Happy FriYAY!! I’m sharing a comfy casual look that’s perfect for running errands and hanging out on the weekends and then hopefully I can retire my uggs and beanies until next year. I don’t know about you, but I’m ready for warmer weather, tees and open toe sandals! My Topshop sweater is currently sold out, but I’ve linked a few similar options instead. If you want a pair of cozy and extremely comfy boots for walking around in, these Uggs are definitely the way to go and they’re under $200! You can shop all outfit details and similar below!

Have a great weekend!

Classic Neutrals

Happy first of the month! We’re that much closer to spring (19 more days), but who’s counting, right?

I wanted to share a simple yet classic look with all of you that will never go out of style and one that you can probably already put together with the items in your closet. If you don’t already own one, definitely invest in a camel colored wool coat which is a great alternative to your standard black coat (another staple you should own). I bought mine (here) on sale at Macy’s a couple of years ago, but I’ve been meaning to get a new one because the camel color is a little off and has more of a taupe tint to it. I’ve come across a couple of wrap coats in camel such as this one that I’m hoping I can still purchase while on sale before next year.

My Burberry check scarf was a recent Christmas gift. I’ve been wanting the classic camel print for a while now (I have it in ivory as well), but you certainly don’t need to spend that much for any everyday scarf. It’s a personal preference. There are some pieces I prefer to splurge on (or ask for as Christmas gifts), including handbags and coats, that I know will never go out of style. My brown double o-ring belt is from Express and under $40. I have it in black too. It’s simple yet stylish and a great dupe of the Gucci logo belt. My brown suede booties are from Nine West and I bought them for under $40 during Cyber Monday.

This is a great transitional outfit since you can swap out the booties for a pair of pumps and the wool coat for a trench coat in the warmer months. I’ve linked several options below.

Have a great day!

Cozy in Pink

Happy Friday!! Oh my goodness, I’ve been such a slacker lately. My birthday was this past Wednesday (yay!!) and I turned the big 3-4!! Should I even be sharing my age with all of you?? We’ll make this my unofficial birthday post minus the balloons. I took the day off from work and went to the DMV first thing to get my license renewed followed by a blog photo shoot and then spent some time with my wonderful family. Tomorrow I’m going into the city with a couple of friends to celebrate my birthday so I’m looking forward to that. I love celebrating birthdays no matter how old I get.

Today I’m sharing a cozy and bundled up look with a pink and white color combo that’s ideal for this chilly weather that fits the romantic and feminine mood for February. You can shop outfit details below.

Leopard Print & Faux Fur

It’s Just Another Manic Monday! I hope you’ve all had a great weekend! It’s cold and snowy today so what better day than today to share this edgy winter look which consists of my new faux fur leopard print coat I purchased on sale at H&M recently for $40!! It was right after Christmas and everything was marked down in the store and I just had to have it.

I’ve mentioned before that leopard is one of my favorite prints because it’s classic and can be considered a neutral. It can easily make a simple outfit pop, particularly an all black outfit. It can also be especially sexy against a pop of red; maybe I’ll put together a V-Day look for you and share it next week. I would highly recommend purchasing a leopard print coat to add to your wardrobe. I’ve found a few similar styles for you to shop below.

Have a great day!

My Favorite Wrap Coat

Happy Monday, friends! I hope you all had a great weekend. I had taken a little break from working on my blog recently and so I finally shot some new outfit photos yesterday for the upcoming week after a two month break. It’s easy to lose motivation and fall out of routine, but I’ve learned in order to be successful in any hobby or job you’re doing, you do have to stay consistent and keep at it even on the days you really don’t want to. It is OK to take time for yourself to recharge when necessary though so don’t beat yourself up if you find yourself struggling to stay motivated. Life happens.

Today I’m sharing one of my favorite winter coats with all of you, the Marla Shawl-Collar Wrap coat by T Tahari.  I asked for this coat for Christmas a couple of years ago after seeing a friend of mine wearing it and it’s one of my all-time favorite outwear pieces. I actually just received it in black this past Christmas because I’ve been needing a new black coat and I just love this style. The oversized shawl collar that drapes over the shoulders is what really makes this beautiful coat stand out. It hits just above the knee and has a wrap belt that cinches the waist for a fitted and classic look. It comes in several different colors, but the merlot is my personal favorite.

Macy’s, Nordstrom and Bloomingdale’s all have several in stock and in different price ranges. Bloomingdale’s carries it in black and mink and it retails for only $85 with their current sale!! Macy’s also has a winter sale and it’s just under $190 while Nordstrom retails it for $229. I know, what the heck?!! I’ll let you in on a little secret though. Most retailers price match so if you prefer one retailer over another, as long as they have the same size and color available as the store with the lowest price, they’ll honor that lower price. 🙂

Have a great day!
