Hard to believe the first month of the New Year is coming to an end! Valentine’s Day is in two-and-a-half weeks and I’m really excited to share a fun February tradition with you all… I call it “Red, White, and Pink Week.” I commit to wearing red, white, and pink every day for the entire week surrounding Valentine’s Day (in this case, February 11 – 15).
Why pick just one outfit for the 14th when you could dress for the holiday all week long? It’s really fun to be creative with my outfits throughout the week, and I love wearing pink and red as a festive gesture. I want you all to participate! I’ll be posting photos each day and using my unique hashtag #redwhitepinkwk, and I want you to use it, too. Keep reading for all the details about participating!
I am absolutely obsessed with over the knee boots this season… I may be a little late to the game, but now that I’ve finally caught on, I’m really excited to learn how to style over the knee boots.
In the fall, I kept an eye out for an affordable pair. When it comes to pieces I’m excited about, I’m slow to buy because I want to be sure I make the right choice. (Sometimes too slow.) So my sister surprised me with a pair of over the knee boots for Christmas, and I love them. They’re mink suede (linked at the end of the post!).
Since Christmas, I’ve been referencing all the Insta posts I’ve “saved” for OTK boot inspo, and pinning over the knee boot outfits like a fiend to my Pinterest “style” board. I have a goal in 2019 to be more creative with my outfits – I’m too matchy-matchy and will sometimes pair the same pieces together over and over again, rather than mixing things up to create new looks. I don’t want to do that with my over the knee boots! I look forward to wearing them often.
Merry Christmas Eve to all! I hope everyone has an opportunity to rest and spend time with family and friends this week.
Today, I want to write about two of my favorite trends this holiday season – buffalo check and sherpa. (And how cute they look paired together!) I’ve seen so many cozy sherpa jackets on social media lately, and am absolutely loving this trend. Everything from sherpa pullovers, sherpa coats, cropped zip-up jackets – I’ve always been a fan of sherpa (who isn’t?! it’s so soft) so I knew I needed to invest.
There were a couple of options to choose from, but I particularly loved this cropped pocketed sherpa jacket from Vici (I’ve linked everything below). I think it’s an incredibly versatile piece – I could wear it over anything, really, but I’ve had a lot of fun pairing it with flannel and plaid.
When the holiday season rolls around, all I want to wear is chunky sweaters and pretty winter accessories; plaid scarves, knit beanies, tall boots. But the reality of living in Florida is that I’d be sweltering if I wore those layers because the days of cool temps are few and far between. There have been many years when I could have worn short sleeves to Christmas dinner!
This year, I’ve decided to embrace the “Floridian Christmas” so I’m prepared for my holiday parties. I’ve been on the lookout for pieces that are both weather appropriate and also festive. Luckily, I found these 2 gorgeous holiday tops at Vici!
I love dressing for the fall season because I can break out my jeans, cozy sweaters, and booties. I love the colors of the season – rich browns, olive green, garnet. A few weeks ago, I listed 5 Instagram accounts to follow for “fall style inspo,” because these bloggers’ looks definitely inspired MY seasonal shopping. In this post, I’m recommending 5 pieces (both basics and “fad” pieces!) you need in your wardrobe this fall. I’ve included styling tips and links to each of the pieces I’m wearing, as well as alternatives at various price-points!
