OTHER FAVORITE TEDDY JACKETS & COATS:
When in doubt, wear black on black on black. Maybe it sounds like a no-brainer, but this is my go-to when I’m feeling uninspired or after I’ve spent an hour sitting in my closet, staring at my clothes. Yes….even bloggers & stylists have those days, which is why it’s important to have some black staple pieces and LBD’s that you can always count on. For me, it’s these Stuart Weitzman OTK boots, a black knit sweater dress, and a black crossbody bag. I’ve actually worn this same look 3 times within the last couple weeks but I mixed things up each time by swapping out my purse & sunglasses. Oops!
It’s funny how I’ve always been resistant to pink, yet I’m grabbing for this blush pink color every chance I get. I guess 2016 was the year I finally accepted it’s okay for me to be a fan of the color…
Thanks to Christian I think we’re all familiar with 50 shades of grey now (if you’re not…familiarize yourself), but most hesitate when mixing shades of grey in the wardrobe department. I’ll admit I shy away from it when it comes to other colors, but with grey however, I welcome it…encourage it, actually. The more the merrier. You really cant go wrong when pulling all the greys together in your closet! It’s not quite 50, but here’s my take on mixing shades of grey…
Customization is a wonderful thing. From clothes to shoes and phone cases to handbags, customization is at our fingertips and becoming more innovative than ever. The latest trend in customization is interchangeable handbag straps…I know, who would’ve guessed? You will notice over the coming months that high fashion labels are releasing handbag straps as their newest statement piece in a collection. As much as this may seem cheesy, their practical and make purchasing a handbag that much more versatile.
I’ve added a few new pieces to my fitness wardrobe! Just in time to get me prepped for New Years Resolutions being right around the corner (that I’m secretly dreading) and of course lululemon has everything I want & more. This last few months has been absolutely crazy moving to a new place, going full-time with my blog, traveling, and finding time for family/friends. Naturally the first thing that goes when we are busy or don’t have time is our workouts and mine have certainly done so. One of my resolutions this year is going to be cutting the excuses, getting up earlier, and doing something active at least 3-4 times/week regardless of whats going on.
