I am a huge believer of versatility in my style and I don’t believe that just because the temperatures drop, we should be confined to only wearing pants or leggings. Dresses can actually be a great layering piece for winter looks and can look quite chic with the right boots underneath. Here are a few of the dresses I would personally style for the winter. Let me know in the comments below, are you a fan of dresses in the winter or do you prefer trousers? Either way, happy shopping! (Don’t forget to click the images to shop my picks!)
It’s absolutely no secret that during the winter season the best remedy for keeping warm and looking chic is layering. My personal formula for executing layering successfully, is starting with a neutral base and then gradually building upon it with heavier pieces that are among the same color palette. This is exactly the method that I used for this look. I was getting quite bored with feeling obligated to wear pants just because of the brisk temperatures, so I went on a hunt for a thick midi dress that I could wear with tights and my thigh high boots. Once that mission was accomplished the rest of the look came together quite easily. I’ve really been loving the taupe and grey tones this season so those were pretty much the colors I stuck with throughout the look. I loved the look of the ribbed knit texture of the dress against the heavy tan wool and leather on the coat. To add a bit more texture and dimension, I added my cropped fur vest and my favorite scarf. Another crucial tip when it comes to adding layers is taking full advantage of accessories. Hats, scarves, sunglasses, and bags are all easy pieces that you can grab to take your outfit to the next level. With that being said, I finished off the look with my leather cap and go to cross-body handbag. With layering like this, you are guaranteed to stay looking fashionable and feeling warm.

By no means do I consider myself to be an individual that would be classified as a “sneaker head,” but I am indeed a fan of casual street style and the idea of incorporating sneakers into fashionable looks. Personally, I love looking on Asos for my kicks because they carry a variety of different brands and simple selections that can easily be worn with every day looks. With that being said, I have rounded up a few pairs of trainers that would be staples in my closet and what I would wear on an effortlessly, chic day.

This honestly may have been one of the most fun shoots to date. After a gloomy, rainy day, we decided it would be fun to go to a local court and shoot, while shooting…(get it..basketball?). Anyway, we took advantage of the empty space and changed up the dynamic by adding some intense action to our usual photo shoots. The concept actually came together quite nicely since I decided to wear sneakers, (something I’ve been surprisingly doing quite often) and had a very casual vibe going. Looks like these are pretty much my weekend uniform. They allow for you to still be on trend, with the textures and accessories, while also remaining comfortable if you decide to run errands or simply grab coffee with friends. I’ve mentioned before that I love nothing more than a chunky knit sweater during the fall and winter months. They bring such a cozy vibe to any look and provide a great foundation to build upon. Though I wouldn’t classify myself as a “sneaker girl,” I like to have staple kicks in my wardrobe that go with everything, and these Hurraches have become my new favorites. Obviously, you can’t go wrong with black, but they are also extremely lightweight and stylish. So if you like to be weekend casual like me, comment below and tell me your must-have pieces. Until next time!

To be honest, I pulled this outfit together at the very last minute; but like most spontaneous things, it ended up coming together perfectly! This look portrayed the three emotions I was feeling on this particular Saturday; casual, comfortable, and edgy. Though it was a fairly gloomy day, I still wanted to pull out some statement pieces, and this grey leather wrap skirt happened to be exactly what I was looking for! I’ve been lusting over this skirt for over a year, so when it finally came back in stock, I knew I had to grab it; and it has become one of my new favorite pieces in my wardrobe. Because the skirt has some length to it and I’m not the tallest girl in the world, I decided to balance it out by keeping the top form fitting with a mock neck, ribbed sweater. To stick with the casual theme, I opted for my white leather converses and threw on my black expletive beanie for a bit of drama and interest. Pretty much any bag would work with this look, but in efforts to keep things minimal I decided on my favorite black leather tote. I must say, I was quite pleased with this look. While it is not something that I usually go for, I may have found a new style worth experimenting with. But that’s what fashion is all about! Taking the time to evolve and break out of your comfort zone to see what looks suit you, brings a world of endless possibilities! Until next time! <3

During this time of year it is crucial to stay warm; but who says you can’t look chic and trendy while doing it?! Here are some of the fashionable coats that have caught my eye recently. (Don’t forget to click the images to shop my picks!) Enjoy!
The time has finally come! I am a true lover of faux fur pieces and every year around this time I relish in the ability to break out all of my fuzzy items that keep me looking chic and feeling warm. It is amazing how many brands have expanded their lines over the years and began incorporating many more quality faux fur items. Whether you are a fur fan like myself, or just someone that is looking to experiment with the texture in your wardrobe, you can now find pieces almost everywhere that will meet your trendy needs. Because the coat brings such drama, I chose to keep the rest of my outfit minimal with a cream funnel neck sweater and grey skinny jeans. I don’t know about you, but whenever I wear fur I feel extremely luxurious so I decided to keep that theme going with my Fendi sunglasses, which have a tortoise print that seems to mimic that of the coat, and my Chanel inspired chain handbag. I completed the look with my favorite black ankle boots and was ready to hit the streets! I definitely recommend experimenting with fur if you haven’t already, and if you have, try getting your hands on some fur items that you wouldn’t usually go for like a scarf or vest. Stay tuned, fur season has only just begun!
