Day-to-Night Chic Leopard Print

 

cupcakes and cashmere

This blush-toned leopard print dress is the perfect day-to-night piece for spring. It’s the perfect shift dress that would go great with a blazer, heels, and a satchel style bag for work. The subtle blush tones make it a great spring piece, and I would actually pair this one with a white blazer and rosey pink lipstick. For an easy transition to evening, just lose the blazer or swap out with a moto jacket and go for a lighter purse.

Wear Your Favorite Winter Styles Again

sezane sweater

After a busy few weeks starting a new job, it feels good to finally get back to my blog. This is probably the last winter look I’ll do for the year. This time of year is always a little hard for fashion. It’s still too early for spring styles, but there’s a lot of excitement and anticipation on what will be coming out. Though we’ve been having some nicer weather, it’s still pretty cold. I think it’s a great time to wear all your favorite winter pieces again before putting them away for dresses and sandals. I’m wearing my favorite Sezane sweater and these otk boots again and again. The good news is, the boots and jeans are both on sale now- linked below. I have a feeling that otk boots will be back again next year, so you can snag this classic style, wear it a few times, and still get plenty of use out of them next year. The Sezane sweater was a piece from their holiday collection that has long since sold out. You can still get the Sezane Tiger Bag I’m wearing, though, also linked below through the picture.

Colorblock Sweater on Repeat

colorblock sweater

I bought this colorblock sweater fairly early in the fall season, and it’s been the item I’ve been wearing over and over all winter long. I love the subtle colorblock and neutral shades, plus it’s really cozy. I can easily wear it on for so many occasions: work, going out, running errands, ect. It’s so versatile! It’s one of those sweaters that’s so nice to throw on with a favorite pair of jeans and booties, and be set.

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.
