Take risks this season! Love leather? Give the trend a try and rock it. Got your eye on that fur vest but afraid you won't be able to pull it off? I say go for it (or shall I say fur it) and wear it with confidence. The holidays are such a fun time for outfit experimentation and showing off ;) So flaunt your feathers (and your fur) and shine this season in anything and everything your heart desires.
I have to admit, I've never owned something quite so furry before. But the fur vest trend is so hot right now that I thought I should definitely give it a try. Some may think a vest like this is a little much, but I absolutely love it. It's a statement piece for sure but it's also a killer layering tool. Let me tell you, this baby is incredibly warm (coming from the girl who is always shivering)! It also fits underneath all my coats for when I need a layer of bear skin to protect me from these NYC winds ;) Grab the same vest here - now on a DOUBLE sale!
A bow blouse like this is a great alternative to your typical collard button-down. This variation is just a tad more polished and unexpected. I love this deep burgundy color (especially for the holidays) and the round gold buttons make a luxe statement. But the best part about a blouse like this is that you can leave it untied for a relaxed, off-duty vibe, or you can tie it up for a slightly preppy, uptown feel.
[vegan] Leather leggings are something anyone can pull off. Trust me! I love them for days when I don't feel like putting on real clothes. They're just as comfy as regular leggings but they have way more style clout and edge. Leggings this cool can be worn from the office (depending on your day job) to drinks and dancing come nightfall. These are the pants your wardrobe can't do without - just remember to wear them with attitude!
Surprise! I'm wearing another hat. I can't get enough of them this season. This is my all-time favorite topper, I got it at Anthroplogie last year at Christmastime. It always seems to add that extra something to any look I'm styling. Sometimes it's hard not to wear it every day.
This blush purse/clutch is a fun and easy way to incorporate a pop of color into any look. Blush is a soft neutral that's feminine, charming, and always in style; an ideal compliment to just about any outfit.
Since I'm not wearing a necklace, I wanted earrings that pop with a whole lot of sparkle and shine. These classic Kate Spade studs do the trick for me every time.
How gorgeous is this Brooklyn Bridge backdrop? These photos were taken on a day when my friends and I spent a day in Brooklyn bopping around in bookshops, eating way too much Shake Shack, and taking goofy pictures like usual. Pictured with me below is Leah, one of my very best friends from college who moved to New York City along with me and tons of other people from our class after graduation. Leah has her own dope blog that you can checkout here. I highly advise you read it - she's hilarious.
