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.
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.

Fall Fashion is in full swing and I’m sure that’s all you guys are reading about! The time change this past Sunday definitely has us all feeling the blues of seeing those Summer days fading away. Now all I want to do is cuddle up on the couch when I get home and watch Harry Potter. But alas, with the time change we also have cooler weather coming through and I was SO EXCITED to wear this primary color look for Fall. You might have seen H&M pop up with some amazingly bright bold colors for Fall including hues of blue, red, yellow, purple and greens.
Who else is all about plaid trousers for Fall? I’m 100% in! From plaid flared trousers to high waisted to tapered ends, there are a multitude of colors prints and textures you can fill your closet with. I’ve already accumulated three pairs in the past few months and I don’t see it stopping. I’m really in love with this pair from Mango that have a brown wool appearance that are also high waisted.
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.
