Wear a Suit Like you Don’t Have To

topshop suit

I’m lucky in that I don’t have to wear suits to work. If I did, I’m sure a bright pink suit wouldn’t be considered appropriate. But even though I don’t have to suit up for work, I still love the style. I wear blazers all the time with jeans. When I saw this pink suit, I knew it was a little over the top, but I couldn’t resist. I’m a big fan of the color pink and wear a lot of it. It’s a flattering color. I also love the cut and quality in this suit by Topshop (one of my current favorite brands). It’s bold but still looks nice (not cheap). That’s why this suit can be pulled off. It looks so nice.

Sexy Black Mesh

mesh bodysuit

I’m all about the mesh trend right now. Done right, it’s so sexy. I will admit that the tops that are completely sheer with just a bra underneath aren’t for me… but I love pieces that incorporate the trend with a little more coverage. Like this black knit bodysuit from Sezane (sold out but I linked several similar options below). It’s sexy but still a bit sophisticated and understated. I also love that the fabric is actually a light sweater knit instead of an ultra stretchy synthetic. When you’re looking for a way to add a little edginess to a look, I think that mesh is a great way to achieve it. If you find a really cute all-sheer top, and like me you’d like a little more coverage, just add a slim sleeveless black bodysuit underneath instead of a bra.

Holiday Style: Dressed Up with Jeans and Winter Florals

new years eve outfit

I’m a dress-lover, so when it comes to special occasions, especially the holidays, I love taking advantage of the chance to wear a dress I wouldn’t otherwise have an occasion to wear. That being said, I always see dressed up denim outfits during the holiday season that I also love. They work so well if you want to strike that perfect casual cool yet still dressed up tone. I wanted to create my own look that did just that. I knew this silky strapless winter floral print top would be perfect for jeans to create a dressed-up feel that would work for holiday parties or New Years Eve. I paired it with these frosted black skinny jeans which made the colors of the floral print pop. The frosted jeans are also just a touch more dressy, so they work well in this look. I added my favorite strappy high heels and glizty jewelry along with an on-trend ring purse to pull it all together. This is a great New Years Eve outfit if you don’t want to go all out in a dress or you’re attending a more casual house party that calls for understated glam.

Cozy & Fuzzy Floral Sweater with Comfy Trousers

sweater

I love it when my outfit gets to be cute and comfy at the same time. This sweater trouser combo is perfect for these colder temps. The material of the sweater is fuzzy, soft, and super warm. It’s perfect for these cold cold days we’ve been having (at least the sun has been out though, right?) I love the peachy color and the warm tones of the floral print. It’s perfect with jeans or even a leather mini skirt and booties. I paired it here with a slip cropped tweedy trouser for a cozy, curl up with a cup of tea kind of look.

Work Style: Kick Flare Trousers + Statement Sleeves

nude blouse

You got to have at least one solid nude piece in your closet. Sometimes nude can be a little hard when you’re fair skinned like me. It’s like white… it can wash you out. But when you find that shade that works with your skin it’s like magic. It’s so subtle and sophisticated. I love the feminine details on this nude blouse with the ties at the wrists and the poetic statement sleeves. This is a great blouse for work or with jeans for a date. I styled it as a work outfit here with my favorite flattering kick flare trousers. I seriously love the fit of these trousers! I want to wear them all the time. I love this trend because. It makes the look a little more playful and shows off the ankles and shoes really well. Very chic! These trousers have pin stripes too which make them great for work. For just a hint of glitter I wore my glittery low heels.

Holiday Style: Black Velvet + Rose Gold Moto Jacket

winter fashion

I’m so happy velvet is back this year. I love the way black velvet looks- so luxurious and sexy! It’s the perfect touch for this flattering wrap dress. Combined with the rose gold metallic moto jacket, it’s perfect for any holiday party or NYE. This is definitely going to be my NYE look this year. I almost died when I saw the rose gold metallic moto jacket. It’s a little over the top, but would be so cute styled with distressed jeans and a white tee. I found these pieces at my favorite local boutique Shop Adorn (products linked below), along with the glittery heels at their sister store Gild.

Give your wardrobe more dimension with beautiful prints

I love finding a quality print. Admittedly, they can be a little hard to find. A good print is both unique and timeless. In a world of solids, stripes, plaid, and repetitive florals, a unique print will elevate your closet and show off your taste. The key is to mix them in with your solids, stripes, ect. It gives your wardrobe a little bit of dimension.

Holiday Style Series: Statement Sleeves + Metallic Blue

katie cockerill

Thanksgiving is this week, which means the Christmas season is basically here. I’ve always loved the holiday season. I adore the festive energy, and all the glittery lit-up prettiness. And that goes for holiday style too. It’s the best time of the winter to get dressed up and in a glitzy kind of way. Whether it be sequins, velvet, or anything shiny you can have fun with your look.

This is the first post in a holiday style series for my favorite dress-up looks of the season. It’s a perfect look for any holiday party or even a more formal Thanksgiving. The pleated midi skirt has a blue metallic shimmer, and the heels are sparkly too. The white top helps balance the bold color of the skirt but still has flair with the big statement sleeves. To finish it off, I paired the look with a beautiful Gorjana necklace.

Bomber Bliss

bomber jacket

Bombers are not around as much this year as last, but I still love them. They’re a jacket that has a flattering and clean fit, so you look polished. I love the floral print on this bomber jacket too. It’s a perfect fall floral. My photographer accurately referred to the blush color as “millennial pink” during the shoot. Anyway, I paired it with my favorite dark denim and color matched it to a pair of low embellished booties. This is a great outfit for work if you work in a casual office or for casual Friday. Also great for grabbing happy hour or heading to a weekend daytime event. I found this gem at Shop Adorn. It’s sold out from their online store, but I linked a couple similar floral bomber jackets.

Capsule Pieces from the Sezane Fall Collection

You guys know how much I love Sezane. I’m excited to share with you a couple of capsule style pieces from their fall collection that are still in stock. Most items are sadly sold out, but my white blouse and red heels are both still available in all sizes. I also linked a few other similar white blouses from the collection that have some sizes available. These two pieces are versatile non-trendy items that will last into future seasons. Both can be styled up or down. I’ve worn the red shoes to work quite a bit, but they also work great on for a more casual weekend look as I’ve styled here. The blouse is perfect with jeans, but would also be great with a flirty skirt for a sexy/sweet date look.
