These plaid pants. These damn plaid pants. Sixteen-year-old me would want them in every color. I’m thirty-one now, do I really think I can pull these off? Yes.
It all started with an inspiration from Pinterest and my indecision to decide which look I wanted to recreate. I never thought that my indecision would create such a fun look, and something I never considered doing: layering coats. We all have those fun fashion coats which are realistically not warm enough to wear during a frigid day, especially here in New York. So why not layer your favorite coats for a fun (and interesting) look.
Looking chic or stylish in New York City during the winter is often a hell of a task. Do you risk catching a cold to leave your coat open so the world can see your outfit? YES…. depending on the temperature and length of the walk. What I have learned is that you have days where you want to stay warm and other days where you want to look fabulous head to toe. To be quite honest, it is insanely simple to achieve.
Target is my weakness. Who else can agree with the previous sentence? EVERYONE! They have always been my go to for just about everything under the sun, it is often a danger to go to the store without a chaperon. You always walk out with 100 things you didn’t necessarily need but couldn’t walk pass. They have the same effect on you even online. I was looking for another faux fur coat but nothing like I had been seeing all over instagram or on the streets. It was always the same cut, style, and feel. Since I am a giant pain in the ass to myself, I HAD TO FIND SOMETHING DIFFERENT. Target answered my fashion prayers with this coat…
I love it when the title of my blog perfectly flows and explains everything that I am wearing. From my “cami series” I promised that I would show a full head to toe look with this black cami & bralette from Free People… Continue reading “Black Velvet & Faux Leather + a Sweater”
Can you tell the color red has slowly creeped into my very dark wardrobe? This red sweater from H&M was a super score for many reasons: perfect for the holidays (christmas and single awareness day aka Valentine’s Day), it was on sale, super comfortable, long enough to wear with leggings, a fun bold color. No need to go any further with the details on this sweater so let’s move on, shall we? Continue reading “Red Sweater”
Staying cozy and warm is a necessity in the winter, sometimes its not always about looking cute but staying warm. With this sweater from Target I was able to accomplish the cute and warm look. I loved that this had such a mix of fabric: faux sherpa, faux suede and a knit. Everything that is needed when it comes to a cozy winter look. Continue reading “Cozy Winter Whites”
Continuing with my full looks from the “cami series” here is the amazing red velvet cami look. Although I tend to wear mostly black, I couldn’t help myself when it came to purchasing this red velvet cami. This time around I wore it with jeans and a faux leather jacket. Continue reading “Pop of Red(velvet)”
Bringing this look back from last year it is definitely a jacket I like to wear during the month of February. This time around I went for an all black look underneath with a hint of layers. Continue reading “Pink Faux February”
All girls have that moment where you feel the need to buy a new outfit instead of looking at the potential 100 or more options in your closet. Today I took that challenge and decided to use the same pants in 2 different looks with these olive green jeans. Continue reading “Green times two: mixing & matching”
