Happy Wednesday, my gorgeous friends!

One of my favorite color combinations when the temperatures begin to dip is burgundy and light pink. I love the intensity the burgundy has an how it pops so beautifully against the softer pink shade, creating a nice contrast that's perfectly balanced. What makes these two colors so appealing together is that they both have cool undertones, which allow them to compliment each other perfectly. As you know, this is a strategy I often use when creating color combinations because it almost always ensures that the colors I'm considering will work well together.

Happy Tuesday, friends!

Anyway, I wanted to talk about a trend I've been seeing pop up a lot lately and that's fishnet tights paired with denim. Basically, it's the same concept as we discussed in my How to Wear Ripped Jeans in the Winter post, but this won't actually give you the warmth as the other styles I showed and mentioned in that post.

Happy Friday, my gorgeous friends!

In my previous post, I shared 7 Christmas outfit ideas, one of which featured the coat I'm wearing today. A red coat is such a great statement during the holiday season and after. Yes, I believe you can still rock a red coat well after the holidays are over. In fact, I think the holiday season kicks of the wear your red coat season, haha. We've talked many times about how during the winter our outerwear is essentially our outfit because we're bundled up and concealing everything underneath.

Happy Humpday, friends!

So, to be honest, I had taken some photos of an outfit I planned on sharing today, but I didn't like how they came out at all. We took them on Sunday, the day after the snow storm we had here on the east coast and it was just freezing and super cloudy, making it so hard for my lens to focus in on me, which resulted in blurry photos :( I decided I'd share some outfit ideas for Christmas taken from the archives, ranging from dressy to super casual depending on your gathering, which I hope inspire you in some way for creating your perfect holiday outfit!

Happy Monday, my gorgeous friends!

Anyway, I'll be sharing some outfit inspirations this week to hopefully give you some ideas on what you can wear for your gathering(s). Today's look is definitely more suitable for a dressier setting. I personally think that a fedora and faux fur coat duo is the epitome of winter chic. The two can be a bit over the top when worn together, but this IS the season of over the top, so go for it, girlie! You'll most likely remove the hat anyway when you're indoors, but at least you can make a grand, fashionable entrance, while keeping your head warm ;)

Happy Friday, friends!

Yesterday was 22° degrees, but felt like 11°! So it seems as though winter is here, which makes a warm coat an absolute necessity. Last week, I shared some tips on creating different looks with one coat, assuming you already own one your happy with and that's sit functional. If, however, you're in the market for a new coat, there are a number of things to consider when shopping for one to ensure it's warm, practical, and flattering; today we'll be briefly discussing the latter.

Happy Wednesday, my friends!

I love distressed jeans, particularly the ones I'm wearing here, they're definitely one of my most worn pair and the style that has the most distressing (is that even a word?) in my denim collection. I know this style, distressed knees, is quite popular and the thought of not being able to wear them can come to mind as the temps continue to plummet. I'm here to showcase how they can be worn all winter long and with the number one technique we all use come fall and winter and that, my friends, is layering!

Happy Monday, friends!

It wasn't until recently that I started to really jump on the blanket scarf bandwagon. I've had a couple for a few years, but this year I've been adding them to my collection more and more and I tend to keep an eye out for them when shopping. What I love about them is their versatility and the fact that they keep you super warm and most of the time, you don't even need to spend a lot to get a cozy one either!
