Welcome back my friends!

Today, I'm showcasing what we talked about last week in my monochrome post. This is actually my first time wearing all grey and I honestly don't know why I haven't worn it before. I don't have a grey purse, which I've actually been wanting for quite sometime, but haven't found one I absolutely love, so I added a baby blue crossbody instead. I felt it worked as a soft pop of color that does the job without being to impactful. Unlike me, I know, haha. I also don't have a pair of grey pumps (I don't believe I've ever owned a pair either) so I decided to go with silver metallic pumps instead. Since silver blends so well with grey, I felt it worked in creating the monochrome outfit I was going for. They're also patent leather, which we also talked about last week

Happy Tuesday, my beautiful friends!

First off: Thank you SO very much for all your kind, beautiful, and supportive words on my pregnancy announcement yesterday! You all put a HUGE smile on my face and made it feel that much more REAL! I mean, I obviously know that I'm pregnant (duh), but when you tell everyone, I don't know, it kind of just hits you more and makes it that much more exciting, ya know!? Ah...so excited, you guys!

Anyway....

Now is the time of year many of us reflect on what we'd like to improve or work towards throughout the rest of the year. Call them resolutions or goals, these changes are intended for us to become better versions of ourselves and come in many forms. A goal that's often made is to change the way we dress to better reflect the true or new person we want to become (i.e. you've always been shy, but this year you want to work towards becoming more social and outgoing).

Happy Monday friends!

As you can tell by the title of this post, I'm pregnant! I'm 15wks today and it's still so surreal! You have no idea how hard it was for me to keep this a secret from you guys. I was so tempted to tweet a photo of my pregnancy test, lol! I barely had a bump until New Year's Day. I literally woke up and my belly looked huge (huge to me). I told Eddie, "I'm going to have to tell them asap because it's starting to look a little obvious!"

Happy Friday, my dear friends!

As you may have noticed, I have a thing for obsession with faux fur. Be it coats or vests, I'm instantly drawn in when I see them and I think it's because they add an instant chic factor to any look. I tend to style them casually, by pairing them with basic tops and jeans, but they can also enhance the elegance of a dress or jumpsuit for a night out on the town. They truly are versatile!

Happy Thursday, my beautiful friends!

Today we'll be discussing another trend for the season, vinyl (aka patent leather)l! We actually began to see it hit the streets at the start of fall and it shows no signs of stopping throughout winter. It's a nice, modern, and futuristic take on traditional leather pieces, which have a smoother finish. The eye catching shine of vinyl is sure to make a statement and you can choose where you want that statement to be.

Hi all my gorgeous friends!

I hope you're all enjoying the first week of the new year so far! We've been talking a lot about winter fashion around here, mostly about coats and the various ways we can up our game (see here & here). 

Today, we'll be discussing what's under those coats, our actual outfit. Though I'm all for having a coat serving as part of an outfit (it can really tie a whole look together while keeping warm).

Happy Tuesday, my dear friends!

Today we're talking about a trend that's been spotted on both the aw16 and ss17 runways and that's oversized waist belts! Though this isn't anything new per se, the fact that we're seeing it worn in more unconventional ways, such atop a winter coat and with more interesting designs, it's worth noting and perhaps trying. What I particularly love about this trend is that it's extremely figure flattering and for every body shape, size, and height. It really is a trend that compliments everyone perfectly.

Happy Monday and Happy New Year, my gorgeous friends!

How was your NYE's celebrations? We headed to Brooklyn to spend the night at my mom's, where she hosted her first NYE's party, which was so much fun! 

Within recent years, I've really come to embrace plaid and have found ways to incorporate the pattern into my looks in a way that's reflective of my style or the vibe I'm going for that day. Having spoken with other women over the years, either here on the blog or in person, I've noticed that it's either loved or hated. Though it's often linked to preppier styles, plaid is indeed a versatile pattern that can work for not only your personal style, but for your figure too, it's all a matter of keeping a few things in mind when shopping and creating an outfit.
