Vintage High Ankle Jeans – H&M | Satin Top with Stand-Up Collar – H&M | Nakita Ankle Strap Shoes – Alias Mae | Plaid Coat – ASOS |
H&M is my one stop shop for a cool, edgy, on trend outfit in a pinch. Not only do they have reasonable prices but all of the styles bring a lot more to the table than traditional fast fashion stores. I picked up this pair of denim to help elevate my black denim assortment in my closet in partnership with H&M.
As you guys have seen, I am absolutely nuts for colored sweaters and I’m expanding my collection with this green chunky knit & plaid trousers combination. I love the look of this bright green sweater alongside a print like plaid, not only because I just love plaid, but because I’ve been wearing it as a neutral lately. I had one hectic weekend running around a convention in Pasadena so it was nice to stop by Urth Caffe before the chaos ensued and snap a few photos nearby.

You can’t deny that Teddy Bear Coats are the must have for winter. Last year there was a particular H&M teddy bear coat that everyone wanted their hands on. This year it’s shifted slightly to the oh so Instagramable and coveted I.AM.GIA teddy bear coat. Either way, these coats are cozy, trendy, and can be worn in a multitude of ways. Sitting at my desk all day at work, I like wearing comfortable coats I can move in when our office is super cold in the mornings. These kind of coats have a lot of give and make it easy to be able to type and maneuver around. Only downside is that I sometimes get too comfortable that I feel like falling asleep haha.
I was just chatting the other day with some of my coworkers talking about how when I get the urge to purchase some type of item in particular (tops, dresses, pants, bags, hats, etc) I go ALL OUT with purchasing more than one. I’m not sure if it’s my excitement from just loving some particular style of a piece but in reality it’s kind of a sad and weird obsessive behavior. Recently I was sitting down and thought, man I need some new bags, I feel like I’ve been wearing the same ones! So just like that I started jumping online looking up top handle bags. I was really inspired by the Celine Top Handle bag but alas, I’m trying to save for a house so that dream flew out the window.
There’s always new trends coming into play whether it’s a particular print, style or brand. One thing I’m big on is mixing trends with staple wardrobe pieces, in this instance a silk blouse is something that never seems to go out of style. What I particularly like about this silk piece by Ravella is that it maintains a classic chic style with a super luxurious feel. I definitely feel sexy wearing this piece and I have to admit that after trying on multiple outfits featuring the blouse I actually couldn’t pick which outfit I liked best! The gold button detailing was another reason I really enjoyed this blouse, they add that little bit of ornate detailing that makes this the perfect staple. For this particular look, I paired the silk blouse with my navy blue culotte cords and a plaid coat.
Quick little outfit today that I am absolutely in love with. I got both of these pieces from Zara during the Black Friday promotion. The checkered high waisted pants are my new favorites so expect to see them in a lot of Instagram / Blog posts! I was hesitant to believe they were actually high waisted based on the website images (you can never fully trust those can you) along with Zaras reputation for mislabeling things as high waisted.
The Holidays are coming quick and with Thanksgiving already come and gone we are now looking forward to all of the fun December Holidays the world celebrates! For myself, Christmas is what I’ll be looking forward to next. With my family being relatively small and close in nature, I don’t have to worry too much about over dressing for the Holidays. My favorite way to dress for family Holiday gatherings is casual yet cute.
Two things that go great together, sweaters & wide leg trousers. Spent a day in the office and wanted a simple yet sophisticated look. I can definitely say this sweater is just as soft as it looks (not to mention my coworkers dog fell asleep in my arms whilst I was wearing it) and the trousers have the perfect fit that falls nicely on you and only required a slight heeled boot for myself.
I had the pleasure of being introduced to a new eco friendly clothing brand called Siizu. I love when a brand has a clear vision along with something they stand behind so working alongside Siizu to style these pieces was something I really enjoyed doing. Siizu’s philosophy is simple, they design high quality apparel made with sustainable manufacturing practices directly to the consumer at an affordable price point. Fabrics are 100% organic and eco-friendly throughout their entire line of clothing. Designers are conscious of waste and create designs and patterns to utilize an entire fabrics potential creating minimal waste.
When your shirt is falling a part a little bit but it’s supposed to. I’m a big fan of the latest special edition collection River Island has with fashion designer Ashish. This collection has a bunch of cool and fresh gender neutral clothing pieces like this crew neck. I decided to pair this crew neck with a fun pleather zip up skirt and these adorable green feather sling back kitten heels.
