How to dress up a skirt for the coldest of months.

January 30, 2017

Two things in the winter I hate, one the cold and two not being able to wear skirts and dresses. As you might already know I never have lived anywhere warm during the winter. So naturally, it can be challenging wearing skirts and dresses in the winter! I have been banging my head for the past few weeks over how I can incorporate dresses and skirts while keeping it chic and fashion forward. So today I am sharing some of my tips and tricks when it comes to dressing for the colder months. 

1. Tights are okay! Let me repeat they are OKAY! When we think of tights we think of old grandma and old school. (Or at least for me that's what I think of) I always hated tights growing up I would purposely rip and tear them just so I didn't have to wear them. But today I LOVE them so much! They keep you so warm and they now come in so many fashionable patterns and colors! They are totally fashionably acceptable and not at all grandma. 

2. Wear thicker fabrics! What I mean by that is wear a skirt or a dress that is made from a thicker material! This way you can stay warm and look chic! This skirt is a wool blend and I felt so warm in this skirt with my tights! And this day it was probably 27 degrees out! So I always say yes to thicker fabrics. When dealing with dresses see if they are layer able dresses! That is always an awesome fix for the colder months. 

3. Finally, say yes to adding some fun spring time accessories! Spring is literally just around the corner! Find some bright pops of color to incorporate into your wardrobe! For me, it is this adorable Torri bag that I have been gushing about recently! This bag adds such a fun pop of color to the look and automatically brings it into a transitional seasonal look! If you are someone that is scared of color don't be!!! Take baby steps and eventually, it will lead up to more! 

Wishing you all a wonderful start to your week! 

Closet Update plus link up!

January 25, 2017

 Happy Wednesday everyone!!! 
We are halfway through another busy week and I am so ready for the weekend to be here! Today I am doing my first link up with Kelly from Rosy Outlook and Annessa from Seeking Sunshine! When these gorgeous gals asked me to join them, I felt so honored and was so excited to join them! So feel free to link up and join the fun below! 

Now on to the fun! As discussed on Monday I have been going through a real fashion rut! After reading all your comments it made me feel so much better and not alone with this issue. After reading all your sweet comments I decided to go in my closet and really dig through all my stuff! You guys may remember this adorable sleeveless sweater from the fall well I brought it back and decided to layer it up! You guys also might remember these adorable shoes from Target! I love these shoes so much, surprisingly they are super comfy also! Which if you ask me is a win win! I decided to dig through the stuff I already had. And instead of me staying in this rut I can overcome it and create some fabulous pre-spring looks. While still keeping in mind the cold winter temps! 

Wishing you all a wonderful day! And a wonderful Weekend!

The pleated skirt + the closet rut

January 23, 2017

Ahhh Monday you come way to fast anymore! Is anyone else wanting to stay in bed this morning and now accept that it is Monday? Thats how I am feeling exactly! College is finally back in session and as much as I really love buying books and sitting in lectures all day long. (Sarcasm) I much rather be sitting at home editing and shooting content and hanging with patches all day long!!! Sigh!!! 

We may remember this skirt from the holidays! I loved wearing this skirt during the holidays it is one of the most essential pieces I currently own. And I knew I just had to bring it back to the blog. Currently we are in a transitional phase in ALL of our closets. I know for me, I am at a totally fashion road block. Some days its sunny and springlike others its cold rainy and freezing. It is seriously so indecisive. So what do I wear when it is like this? Recently I have been turning to layering pieces that I can just take off as the day goes on. This day I knew I was going to need a coat, or I knew that I shouldn't leave the house without one  Not only is it perfect for the indecisive weather but is perfect for my lifestyle. I am currently always on the go that I really never analyze my closet and end up wearing the same darn thing! Does anyone else seem to just wear the same thing, it is the worse thing ever! 

All in all fashion ruts are totally normal this time of the year! Soon enough we will be wearing bright and wonderful colors! Till then I am sticking to layering pieces and super cute booties! 

Wishing you all a wonderful start to your week!!!

Ahhh Wednesday you are finally here! For some of you, the work week is almost over. For myself, I am heading back to class tomorrow. My university takes roughly 6 weeks off, which makes it even harder to go back! However, I have been in class for about three weeks already. I decided to take an accelerated class in my major. I won't lie I feel like I need another vacation, from the vacation I am on now! 

Also, I feel like everyone across the united states has been experiencing weird temperatures. One second it is freezing cold the other it is spring-like temperatures. It is slightly confusing I won't lie! One thing is for certain, I am beyond ready for spring to be here! Recently I feel like it isn't appropriate to be wearing plaid anymore. I feel like we should be focusing on brighter and happier colors. However, I just couldn't resist, really I just couldn't! I decided to warm up the look a little bit with the help of this gorgeous shawl that I purchased from Tj Maxx. I thought it was the perfect mix of winter meets I'm ready for winter to be over. Won't lie I totally feel like I am in a fashion rut recently! 

Wishing you a wonderful Wednesday! 

Pop of pink

Short story, when I saw Tory Burch had this peony colored bag I literally knew I needed to get it into my closet. I tracked this little beauty down even went to the store. The lady was so not helpful at all, so I put together my resources aka my computer and my brain. I was able to track this beauty down on Tradsey! Let me tell you something I simply adore Tradsey, I have ordered roughly three things from there and have loved every single thing. The quality is fantastic and you can trust them, they pride themselves on selling true authentic goods. This is not sponsored, it's just seriously so true. Anywho, I was able to get this bag for about 55% cheaper than at Tory Burch! If you ask me that's a pretty good deal! 

As for the weather, we have been blessed with some warmer temperatures here in PA. That means I finally can pull out this awesome H&M  dress. Originally I bought on black Friday and fell in love with the feminine feel of this dress! I mean seriously how can you not have a moment with this dress?? I feel like in the winter we fall in the same fashion frut. Jeans and a sweater become a norm and we never get around to wearing some other things in our closet. At least for me, I know I get this way! I always wear the same thing during the winter. This combo is something fresh and fun while still staying appropriate for the cold winter temps! 

Wishing you all a wonderful start to your week! 

The winter poncho party

January 11, 2017

 We finally are getting a break from the super frigid cold temps here in PA. Last week we were so stuck in the teens every single day. I am so happy that we are finally getting away from that! Like I said on Monday's post, I am so ready for spring to be here! I love winter don't get me wrong but nothing is better than spring and tulips and taking out all your bright colored items from your closet. 

If I could say one thing about these boots I would totally say "bold".  Originally I was so shocked that I loved this color. For me, I have always been into a more everyday color boot. But these have literally become one of my favorite boots in my entire winter boot collection. I already have these in black and I always loved the fit of these boots! They are so comfortable and I have never had a problem with them. For me, I am so into being comfortable, especially when it comes to shoes. Nothing is worse than a pair of shoes that are so so uncomfortable you just want to cry. Recently I have been turning more and more to capes and ponchos! I have been loving this gorgeous knit one from Marshall's. They always have the best finds anytime of the year. But especially this time of the year because everything is being marked down. I have been wearing this poncho nonstop, it is so incredibly warm and super chic. A win-win if you ask me!

Happy Wednesday everyone!
