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.
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.
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.
Welcome to statement coat and sweater season! I really love adding in various prints, colors and textured coats into my wardrobe this time of the year, they can make the simplest of outfits really pop. There’s something as simple as adding a bright pop of red to a simple jeans and tee look (plus of course some cool pointed toe white mules). Styling a red longline coat might seem intimidating to some but there are a ton of ways to wear it.
All red everything am I right?! I have been living in sweaters and sweater skirts so I definitely didn’t lie in my last post when I said I am excited on these kind of pieces! Once again I’m repping all River Island pieces here and I gotta say that their styles do NOT disappoint. This all red sweater and sweater skirt set is perfect for the office come these Fall months and by adding a white heel you really add an additional pop to the look. Best part of this look is that it can be transitioned into happy hour or a date night dinner after work hours.
If you know me, then you know I’m in love with high waisted wide leg trousers and this mauve pair from Whimsy + Row is a dream. Not only are they super comfortable but they are the perfect color! The perfect mix between brown and purple that creates a really good neutral for your wardrobe. I decided to pair the trousers with a cute one shoulder blouse and white pumps for a brunch date with one of my good friends.
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.
I’m very excited to be partnering with Grana on their latest knitwear collection made from Mongolian Cashmere and Italian Merino Wool. Alongside their new knits, Grana is challenging everyone to explore how we pursue quality in our lives just as how they pursue quality in their clothing, fabrics and life. One of my ways I pursue quality is by taking time to step away from social media and taking in reality. I also love visiting theme parks, no matter how old I get I’ll never get sick of it! My third, but not final way I pursue quality is to be a good person and always lend a helping hand when needed.
Sometimes you get the perfect combination of feminine with a masculine twist. I think this paper bag waist skirt from River Island fits the bill of adding a classic color to a more modern shape. I decided to offset the more masculine elements of the skirt with a really cool off shoulder puffy sleeve striped blouse (tucked in ever so slightly). I really love how the skirt hits so high on the waist so you can easily tuck in a blouse and create a dress like silhouette.
