I’ve never been super into sporty clothes. Sure, I love comfy clothes and fun sneakers but you’ll never catch me running around in workout gear or tracksuits. But when I saw this velvet bomber, I had to have it. I’ve been into velvet and burgundy lately and I love how this jacket took a sporty silhouette and dressed it up a bit. Paired with a berry lip and glitter sneakers, it made the perfect outfit, even for someone who never envied Sporty Spice’s wardrobe.
I definitely go through phases with trends. Some days, I want to try everything and other days I want to stick to simple basics. Oftentimes (like what’s been happening lately), I will find one trend that I like and buy several different pieces to wear because I like it so much. Lately I’ve been into lace up details and cutouts. This lace up dress started it all. I’ve been wanting a short dress with sleeves and I loved the lace up neckline on this so much that I’ve been buying “all the lace up things” ever since.
I love fun basics that you can throw together to create a super cute outfit in almost no time. This black and white striped tunic has been one of my favorites the last few months and I’ve been wearing plenty of light layers with it as the weather has gotten warmer. This gray sweater is perfect over tunics and I’ve been living in these crazy-soft skinny jeans. Add some suede boots and a sparkly statement necklace and I’m good to go!
I love to wear lots of comfy layers on my days off. I will usually run a few errands and I like to look cute when I’m out in public but then a good portion of my day is spent on the couch blogging and watching Netflix. While I don’t mind changing several times throughout the day (and I do that fairly frequently), I prefer outfits that are versatile enough that I don’t have to. Leggings and tunics are staples for me and I love cozy sweaters that I can wrap up in if I get cold. This lace hem tunic is one of my new favorites and it’s currently on clearance for less than $6!
There are certain details I always like for my holiday looks. I like lots of sparkle (obviously) and a bright lip is always fun for going out. I love lace and I really like it paired with leather to toughen it up a bit. Layers are super important for me because I’m always cold and a great pair of boots or booties can instantly make a holiday outfit look finished. This holiday outfit is one of my favorites because it combines all of those details into one look without being too overdone.
My cold weather wardrobe is made up of mostly monochromatic black and gray pieces, to the point that multiple people have commented on it. I love warm weather so the colder months always feel like a bit of a mourning period for me but really I’m just lazy. If I have a stack of black and gray pieces, it’s easy to grab a few and throw them on in the morning- they always match! Take this outfit for example. I wanted to wear these leather leggings and this sweater is one of my go-tos as soon as it gets a little chilly. I added a tunic for some extra layers and some bright white sneakers for a fun, sporty feel. It probably took about 15 seconds to pick everything out and I thought it looked really cute.
