I love fur and I definitely take advantage of cold winter days to wear as many as I can! When I am out and about and wishing I am home cuddling with my cats, these furry clothes and accessories are the only things keeping me feeling cozy. Not to mention fur can instantly glam up any outfits! Perfect example here... I was getting ready that day and before heading out the door I only had on the tan sweater and the plaid leggings. My fiancé asked if I were taking pictures and if so why was I wearing that (implying how casual I looked). I told him just wait until I put everything on. I threw on a black coat with leather sleeves, wool Panama hat, fur handbag, and fur trimmed booties with the most amazing heels and he went "ahhh I see". This outfit is about being comfortable and cozy while having that chic and glam factor at the same time!
Wow is it really December? Hope everyone had a wonderful Thanksgiving weekend! On Thanksgiving Day, I stopped by Stanford to snap these photos before heading to a family gathering which was just about 10 minutes away from there. I just love shooting at the Main Quad and the way the sun hits the columns. As I have mentioned before that I love bringing out all the fun prints and sparkles during the holiday season, so of course I would wear sequins for this special occasion. This is definitely a more subtle way to wear sequins because I am playing with a rather monochromatic and neutral palette. Who ever says sequins have to be loud and tacky?
I am always on the search for pieces that are classy, edgy, and sophisticated at the same time. The Lowell structured layer dress in whiskey by Addison is the perfect example. It is perfectly shaped and totally timeless, something I know I can still wear five years from now. I also love how it comes with a layering separate with colorblocked sleeves which is also an essential. I paired it with a plated mini crossbody bag by Foley+Corinna with the most gorgeous teal mallard pony to add a touch of color to this neutral outfit. Since my look is on the minimal side, I piled on some Jenny Bird jewelry as well as some of my other favorite metals to dress it up a little. Speaking of Jenny Bird, I have partnered up with this amazing jewelry designer to give you a chance to win a $100 gift certificate to shop at www.jenny-bird.com. See details below on how to enter!
This Animal Kingdom cardigan by Knitted Dove truly is the best of both worlds. Colorblock and animal print, how can one resist? The merlot and beige look amazing together and I love how the print is of all and not just one kind of animal, it sort of reminds me of animal crackers and that's a good thing! I paired it with a peter pan collar blouse, black high waisted jeans, lovely laser cut flats from Irene's Story, and my new Coach Willis bag.
