Today I am chatting about how I put this outfit together and sharing some of my styling tips…
As it gets progressively colder outside, I find that it takes a little more effort to style an outfit that is actually warm yet also stylish, especially since it will most likely be hidden under a puffy coat for most of the day…
Lately I have been getting requests on how to style OTK boots, which I would like to create a whole other post about, but thought in the meantime I would dig up a few outfits from last year that I photographed wearing these OTK Schutz boots. I’ve acquired a few more pairs over the past year and was thinking it could be fun to do some new outfit remixes sharing all the different ways you can wear over-the-knee boots. Would you guys be into that? Let me know in the comments below!Photos by: Lydia Hudgens

Over the past five years I have really grown to adore wearing hats. I always loved them from afar but never seemed to feel very confident whenever I put them on. But then I discovered Rag & Bone and Goorin Bros. and found the right fit and style that I felt comfortable wearing. Then fairly recently, within the last year or two, I started investing in Janessa Leone hats and haven’t looked back. They are on the pricier side, but if you are a hat person, they are totally worth the investment, trust me!
Soon enough we will be smack dab in the middle of transitioning into fall and eventually winter, so I thought it would be fun to show you a couple of ways to style a summery woven wide brim hat for the next few weeks, but also share a few of my favorite outfits where I wore my gray wool/felt hats, which will be more appropriate for the upcoming cooler months.
Here are a handful of my favorite outfits I’ve worn over the past year!

I’ve had a bag of clothing sitting in my closet for the past six months that I have desperately needed to bring into the dry cleaners/tailors not only to be cleaned but also to be tailored. I finally took care of it while I was home in Seattle and was amazed at what a difference it made…

I have lived in New York for eleven and a half years now, which is crazy to think about. Over the years, I have found that I’ve acquired my favorite spots to do things such as work, eat, drink and shop, so when StyleCaster and H&M asked to collaborate with me on a project sharing my favorite haunts, I was definitely down to share! Since I live downtown, I decided to focus on the West Village and Meatpacking District as my focal points to keep it local and easy to navigate. My mini city diary guide is now live on StyleCaster so if you’d like to see and read more, click HERE! Thanks for following along! xo
I am not the biggest fan of tight fitting clothing as I am sure many of you know…I basically live in boyfriend jeans and turtlenecks. But that said, I do like the idea and look of body-con skirts when worn and styled correctly.
Case in point, this ankle length, super fitted ribbed skirt with a big slit up the thigh. I scooped it up the other week when I was in Zara and decided to challenge myself by wearing it with something other than an oversized baggy sweater that would totally hide my shape. I started by wearing the skirt without shapewear and I felt okay but definitely not as structured or shapely as I wanted to look.
So I took it a step further and pulled on my Hi- Waist Long Leg Shaper by Wacoal, which creates a nice lift to your seat while shaping your midsection and thighs, redefining and flattering your natural curves. And because they are virtually seamless with leg openings for the smoothest possible look and feel under clothing, no rolling up or bunching happens. So when I pulled the undergarment on, I immediately noticed that everything seemed tighter and more toned looking. Win win!
All of these perks helped boost my confidence in wearing it in the first place and made me feel comfortable enough to pair it with a cropped sleeveless sweater, (progress!) a structured blazer and my favorite high heels. Overall, I felt comfortable (the high-waisted aspect of the shapewear comes up right below your ribs so you can still breathe) and very feminine. What are your thoughts on shapewear? Do you wear it, and if so, how different do you feel when it’s on? Head on over to Wacoal to check out their other awesome shapewear options. Also, I would love to know your thoughts on this so make sure to leave your comments below!

Have I mentioned how much I love remixing? Well I really do love it and I hope you guys find it helpful too because what’s not to love about learning how to wear your clothing more than one way, right?! Ok, I digress, haha.
