The lovely folks over at Slate & Stone sent me this gorgeous plaid jacket, which I couldn’t wait to style up and share with you guys. It has a bit of a shaggy aesthetic, which I like because it softens up the biker style aspect yet still retains a beautiful silhouette, making it the perfect statement piece.
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
How’s everyone feeling on this lovely Monday? Today is a busy one for me – lots of errands and running around before my trip to New Orleans on Tuesday, which I am very excited about. I will be speaking on a panel with Krystal Bick for the W Hotels What She Said panel where we will be discussing our thoughts, sharing our stories and answering questions on what’s it like to be creative women entrepreneurs, and how we can all continue to make an impact on the world with what we do. It’s going to be such a positive and inspiring week and I can’t wait to meet any of you that might be attending!
On another note, I wanted to quickly discuss these OTK boots by Marc Fisher before I sign off. I am officially in love with them and can’t wait to pair them with everything I own. The color is perfect plus they are comfortable! You can purchase them here or check out 12 other similar options (ranging in price points) below:
I bought this sweater after I saw it on Helena because I love how it has an attached neck that looks like a thick choker, as well as cool, slightly belled-out sleeves. It’s super cozy and warm and hope to buy it in gray, but have to wait for my size to be in stock again. For me, the only issue with this sweater is it’s sort of low cut and without a tank underneath, it can be a tad exposing…
I’ll admit, I don’t always buy into trends because I tend be more into buying classic pieces or items I can wear for years to come, but then again, playing around with trends can be pretty fun. For instance, crushed velvet, chokers, chunky heeled boots and bodysuits are all back and to be honest, it’s both weird and amazing to see styles that you wore as an adolescent or teen come back around when you’re in 30s. At first it’s sort kind of conflicting – do you push back and refuse to get on the bandwagon because it reminds you too much of your youth or do you say screw it, and embrace it by putting a new twist on the trend? In this case, I am all about embracing the fact that velvet is having a major moment right now, so I thought it would be fun to do a roundup of some pieces from around the web that I have my eye on. What do you guys think of wearing velvet? Are you into it? Let me know in the comments. Click on the images below to shop! xo
I’ve been wearing black denim overalls for a while now and have gotten quite a few inquires on how to style them, so I thought I would do a fun remix post, showing four ways different ways I like to wear them. If you have any questions about the outfits above, leave them in the comments below and I’ll get back to you! xo
