Learning to rework your wardrobe and wear things from one season to another is a struggle (I think) we all face. If I’m being completely transparent, this has always been a challenge for me and something I constantly try to work on. If you’ve been following my blog or Instagram for a while now, you will know this is obvious because I rarely repeat outfits other than bags, shoes, or jewelry. Part of this is because in my efforts to be better about reworking my wardrobe, I am purchasing less, making my closet more curated, and investing in more classic pieces that I know are going to last.
Since the fashion world is constantly evolving & changing, it’s easy for us to always want the next seasons trendiest piece, but that’s not always realistic and sometimes what you’re looking for is already sitting right there in your closet. That’s how I feel about this grey tiered sweater dress (under $70)….
There’s no doubt that embroidered jeans (or denim in general) are having their moment. From the runway to high street, we’re seeing this trend all across the board and to be quite frank, I can’t get enough of it. Here I am wearing my embroidered jeans to elevate my casual street style look, but these jeans can certainly be dressed up with a pair of heels/platforms and a more sleek top. Speaking of, I am loving this choker neck sweatshirt (under $45). It’s a little better than your average sweatshirt and the color is divine…am I right?!
I’m back from SXSW and excited to share this look from the #bendelgirl Spring Blogger Guide I had the opportunity to participate in with 4 other amazing bloggers! As we transition to Spring, my wardrobe color palette is definitely starting to lighten with warmer & brighter tones. I love to start each season with a new bag and Henri Bendel is often my go-to because I can get a luxury bag without spending a fortune. This olive crossbody hobo was the perfect addition! Not only is the color a great warm neutral, but the bag is extremely roomy and will be so easy to carry with me for some of my upcoming travels!
These distressed levi jeans and white patent sneakers have been my uniform as of late, but I recently added in this flawless buffalo plaid flannel into rotation. I obviously don’t think I’m flawless, but an ode to queen Bey is always appropriate. We are officially experiencing Spring weather here in Houston and it sounds like it’s here to stay! Totally fine in my book because jeans + a simple tee + sneakers has to be my favorite outfit ever of all time. Urban Outfitters has always been my go-to place for vintage levi shorts, so I was on the hunt for a pair of high-waisted distressed levi jeans. Although these are not vintage, they have the same look and are under $100! I have seriously worn them at least 15 times in the past month…so they’ll have that worn-in feel before long 🙂
This nude knotted cuff sweater dress has sold out multiple times on Missguided, which is why I’m just now posting this look because it’s currently back in stock in ALL sizes! It’s only $45 and the material is divine. It’s like a super soft sweatshirt material but not fleece lined, so still light weight enough for warmer days. And the peachy nude color is so yeezy 😉 For a person that lives in simple basics, the unexpected element a knot cuff brings to a look is definitely refreshing.
This week has been so insanely busy with shows & meetings here at NYFW, but I wanted to get a look up for you guys! I thought this striped sweater (that I cant find online but know it’s currently available in-stores) would be the perfect top for a casual Valentine’s Day if you’re not super into pink/red. The stripes are a light pink, red, and purple combo…so still in the holiday spirit, but not in your face pink.
