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.

Feminine look in a satin skirt & fall florals

satin skirt

I love floral prints. I wear them often, and never get sick of them. Floral prints are my stripes. When I found this satin skirt, I was instantly in love with the color and the fabric. It’s unique and sexy! I thought it was the perfect date night skirt. I new a feminine floral blouse would be the perfect top to offset the bold color of the skirt and round it out. I love the statement sleeves on this top too! I added my pink velvet purse for added texture and soft color.

A sexy touch for the sweater dress/otk boot look

sweater dress

Since college, paring a big sweater with boots has been a thing. I love this look because it’s super easy and comfortable, but also has a touch of sexiness. With otk boots raging this fall, I’m even more enthused about this classic look, since it makes the overall effect even more sexy. Not to mention that a sweater dress is a fall essential. To really make the look extra flirty, I added a corset belt to emphasize the waste. That with the otk boots really add emphasis to your curves rather than feeling like you’re in a bag of a dress. This look is cute, a bit edgy, and flirty.

Ruffles, suede, & otk boots

katie cockerill

Everyone needs a good ivory sweater for fall. They’re so versatile and one of those pieces that is easy to throw on again and again. Every fall, I feel like I’m on the hunt for that perfect white sweater. This year, I went with a little more flair with this Victorianesque ruffle sweater from Nordstrom. It goes great with a suede skirt and boots for a weekend day look as I’m wearing here, and would also be great with skinny jeans for a casual Thanksgiving outfit or even a velvet pencil skirt for work holiday party. Ruffles are a great way to elevate your basic top to something a little bit extra.

Flirty Leopard Print

leopard print

Leopard print is out in full force this fall. I’ll admit, I’ve never been that big on animal prints, but this flirty dress from ASOS is changing my mind! I love the track-style trim detail in the red and white. It’s unexpected, but it somehow works to contrast the print and bring a little extra style to the look. I also love how it ties at the waist for a super flattering, sexy fit. Perfect for date night!
