Happy Wednesday ladies!

You all know how much I love elevated basics. I'm out there looking for t-shirts with a fun twist or jeans that have a cute and special detail that will take my basic outfit to the next level. When Mott & Bow, a New York City based clothing brand that specializes in tailored, artisan denim and elevated basics for men and women, reached out to collaborate, I was very interested in trying out their pieces. As many of you know, The Style Contour came about as a result of tips I share on styling the different body shapes, so the idea of a company that designs denim that has a handmade approach resonated with me.

Happy Wednesday friends,

It's no secret that I'm a huge fan of Jeffrey Campbell. Everyone knows this (lol). I have two pairs of this shoe, the one I'm wearing today has an opening on the side, which makes it less practical to wear when it's cold. An easy fix to this is to add a cute pair of socks. My mom sent me this super cute sock set for Valentine's Day and though I initially had no intentions of styling these two together, it just worked. I knew I wanted to wear these shoes, but of course knew that it was a bit too cold to wear them comfortably. I was wearing these socks and decided to try the shoes on with them to see how they would look and loved it.

Happy Wednesday my beautiful friends!

I hope you're all having a wonderful week so far! 

Since the start of fall I've been reaching for my leather pants almost weekly. I've always been a lover of leather, but it hasn't been until this fall and winter season that I've been wearing them more frequently. I understand that many love the look of them, but just not on themselves. I can, in a sense, understand because they're different. They're different than the denim we're used to, which can make one feel lost in how to style them. Do they go with everything? Are they too edgy? Can I wear them to work? The questions and doubts can go on and on. Today, I hope to answer some of those questions, while giving you some tips on how to wear them.
