On a windy November day in Denver, Colorado I made a common fashion mistake. The Weather: 1 Me: 0 I wore a dress and heels on our first snowfall of the season. I told myself that I didn’t care what the weather was like, I was going to wear this outfit no matter what. I’ve had this little number in my head for weeks and I was so excited to finally wear this dress that’s been sitting in my closet for months. My boyfriend warned me but I didn’t listen. We snapped these pictures in under 60 seconds because I was absolutely freezing. (Can’t you tell by my expression? Ha.) The wind was like ice. I didn’t completely sacrifice my outfit though. I went home and put on some grey leggings and my trusty brown combat boots. I should have done that in the first place because that outfit was cute too. I would say that I’ve learned my lesson and I that I should pay more attention to the weather but I know how I am. I don’t like letting the weather win but I definitely need to be a little smart about making my outfit decisions. We all make these mistakes. It’s part of the journey. My biggest tip is to be weather conscious but still remain yourself. I wanted to wear this dress and I did. I’m proud of myself for not letting the weather choose my outfit for me.

Sometimes, when you’re in a rush or having a bit of a wardrobe malfunction, a scarf can easily become your new best friend. One of the easiest things for me to do is to base an entire outfit around a scarf I want to wear. This usually involves a plain tee, skinny jeans, heels and a simple jacket. It’s the easiest trick in the book. This scarf is on a whole ‘nother level. It can double as a blanket pretty much and I’m in love with it. I love pops of color mixed with camel-like colors. It’s one of my new favorite things. I wore this outfit to lunch with some friends and to run a few errands. This gigantic scarf didn’t bug me as much as I thought it would. It kept me warm and that’s all that matters. My “go to” fall/winter outfit is pretty much similar to this. All winter long I’ll be wearing these trust-y black skinny jeans, a warm top and some statement shoes. I’ll be rocking that look all winter long because when the weather gets colder, I really can’t bother with anything that doesn’t make me feel warm, cozy and comfortable.
Adding fall layers to a summer piece can be tricky. My biggest tip to you is to not think about it so much. You can never go wrong with throwing on a cardigan and some boots. I don’t like putting away my summer clothes when fall and winter time strikes. Heck, that takes all the fun out of it. My summer items are still as good in fall as they are in the summer. Warming them up is actually really simple. It’s easy things like putting a long sleeve top under it, adding leggings, adding boots, putting on a dark lip, or wearing a denim jacket. There’s really no messing it up. I wasn’t worried at all about wearing this bold printed floral jumpsuit with layering pieces that didn’t match. I felt like being funky this day and the turn out was great. There’s people out there that appreciate the funky, unique, non-matching side of you. Embrace that side every once in awhile. The autumn time is literally the perfect time to do so.
Everyone talks about the LBD. Little Black Dress. But I’m here to talk about my LLJ. Little Leather Jacket. Your LBD is honestly NBD compared to your LLJ. OMG. I just have to LOL. Okay, enough of that. I cannot stress enough how much I love my new Zara leather jacket. Every girl needs one in their life. Finding the right jacket that fits your personality the best can be difficult. You have to consider a number of things: the color, the cut, the weight, the texture, and the fit are all important factors that make the perfect leather jacket that’s just for you. Finding the right one is so rewarding. I’m still waiting to find the perfect black leather jacket. (I can’t believe I don’t own one of those) I will someday though. I’m picky as heck when it comes to outerwear so if you’re anything like me, you know patience is key. The right little guy will come around. I’m a lucky girl for snatching this beauty up. It was on the Zara website for maybe a day before it sold out. I don’t get that kind of luck often when it comes to shopping. It’s been freezing here in Denver and this jacket hasn’t disappointed me yet. It’s so cozy and warm. I found my wardrobe staple for this fall/winter and many more to come. So far, my favorite way to style this jacket is with some boyfriend jeans and heels. I would normally wear some bold lipstick but I decided to keep the look neutral with a simple nude lip.
Just so you know, you’re one in 7 billion. You’re extremely special so the way you dress should totally reflect that! Being you is the best thing to be. You’ll find your style and your rhythm. Just be sure you don’t steal someone else’s hard work in the progress because that’s not cool. Be you.
From my necklace, to my shoes, to my trousers you can tell I’m a sucker for gold detailing. These moss colored trousers are perfect. Feminine, yet, slouchy. Which is my favorite type of bottoms. The gold diamonds on them is what stole my heart. I’ll put anything on my body that has some type of gold looking anything on it. I saw these pants at Anthropologie and I said “Take my money right now.” These bottoms aren’t the only thing that stole the show. Let’s talk about this necklace for a second. First of all, anything from Urban Peach Boutique is nicely made, totally fun, bright, and affordable. They are one of my favorite jewelry companies by far. The people who work behind the scenes of this fabulous company are so sweet to me and it’s nice knowing that there are good, wholesome people behind the product you are buying. Lucky for all of you, they are having this lovely Veterans Day sale -all necklaces are 2 for $15! This is your chance to fall in love with Urban Peach Boutique. LOVE LOVE LOVE.

P.S. It’s snowing here in Denver. I am beyond freezing writing this blog post. I have a few outfit posts prescheduled that I did when the weather was much happier and warmer. Trust me, it’s officially winter here in Colorado but the next few posts will be more fall appropriate outfits. Just thought I would let you know!
