How to Layer Coats

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.

Hard & soft: leather & faux fur

For some time now I have been looking for a faux fur scarf.. this past year I have gravitated towards faux fur, and not just in my wardrobe.. but in even in my bedroom. It started with a faux fur pillow, which evolved into a faux fur type blanket and then a year later an actual faux fur blanket… and pillows. Honestly, I will just out right blame Game of Thrones. If you don’t watch this show, well you should. It is amazing, addicting, thrilling, will make you cry in horror and in joy. For the past 6 seasons all I have heard is that “winter is coming” please see below popular meme:

My cousin who also watches Game of Thrones has asked me if I secretly wish I was part of the Stark family clan, or just wanting to be in the nightswatch to be closer to Jon Snow. She made 2 very clear observations.. although I am not coordinated enough to be part of the nightswatch, I would like to be Jon Snow’s lady. Here is Jon Snow.

My point has been made.

Now after that tangent, back to the fashionable part of this post. I have had this idea for a Game of Thrones inspired look but I also wanted the pieces to be versatile. For some time now I had been searching for a faux fur scarf in stores. Sure I have seen them all over Amazon, and for amazing prices might I add, but with faux fur it can be tricky. Your not going to know the texture or quality of it until you actually have it in your hands. When I was in target searching for a scarf I had seen a small row of faux fur scarves, not only did they feel nice and soft but the price was great ($25). As I have said I have been looking for faux fur scarves for some time, the price ranges have been every where from $10-$100. Huge gap. Target closed that gap. What I love most about this faux fur scarf is that underneath is a band where you can slip part of the scarf through so it would hold in place. Much like I have in these pictures. You can wear it tied or if you just want it as an accent piece with your winter coat. I did wear this out at night, and it was rather windy, it definitely held up to the beginning of the winter cold. So I would highly recommend this scarf, it also comes in a few different colors too.

Since I always wear a leather jacket when I go out, I was curious to see how this would look with the faux fur scarf. What kind of look would this be? And honestly, I love it. The hard look of the leather and the soft faux fur brings an interesting balance to the look. You can wear this out with jeans, or even leggings or even over a dress. I am all about being able to rotate pieces of my wardrobe for multiple looks. I also got this cute hat from Target as well. It was one of those “Hey look, its a black hat.. I don’t really need it but I’m here so why the hell not” moments. Target does that to people. Maybe its just something about the store, the pricing? I’m not sure. But it is easy to fall out of control in that store much like Sephora. Chaperons needed!

Stay warm!!

Leopard Lovin’: How I styled the latest animal loving trend

Leopard. Ah, one of the many fall trends. Fun fact: I’ve had this scarf for many years now. I believe that a little animal print added into your wardrobe is a good thing, but in moderation of course. We don’t want to end up like Scary Spice now.


Jaclyn Hill recently posted this picture and I really loved the green and leopard combo.


Her jacket though, sold out. So I got creative and created my own interpretation of the look…

These American Eagle booties I got on sale LAST black friday, my cousin was wearing them and of course having to do everything that my older cousins do – I JUST HAD TO HAVE THEM. Luckily she shares my sense of style and my knack for sales. These were a definite score and I got a lot of use out of them, currently sliding into season 2 with these booties.

I also decided that there was a lack of light in my photos so I went where there was light…


Today I am wearing…

And this wouldn’t be a Jaclyn Hill inspired look without some hoop earrings, am I right girl?


Accessory details…

I’d like to dedicate this blog post to my good friend Nicole, this post is for you my leopard print lover!! ❤️

Dynamite Style

3 different styles with 1 dress, YAAASS.

I practically LIVE in Dynamite’s clothing. What I love most is that I can mix and match all of my outfits. Which means I’m getting my moneys worth. 

So as Super Mario would say, HERE WE GO…


Outfit #1: I styled this Ribbed Mock Neck Dress with a purple cinched waist maxi vest  and Steve Madden Stecy Sandals. A great outfit when your ready to take on the day and kick a little butt.


Outfit #2: This could easily be a perfect date night outfit as well with a statement necklace. Worn with the same Steve Madden Sandals as above. (similar necklace here and here too)


Outfit #3: Now as much as I love how heels may look, my feet cry with pain after awhile. For a more casual look I styled this with a Dynamite faux leather moto jacket and Van’s slip on sneakers.

Accessories worn in outfits #1 & #3: Rebecca Minkoff Moto Hobo and Quay Australia Vivienne Sunglasses
