I discover something new about my personal style every single day. I’ve realized that I absolutely love simplicity but only if the simple pieces are paired with something eye catching and bold. Every outfit I wear HAS to have something that can turns heads or else I don’t want to wear it. I think I nailed it with this light pink trench coat. I kept the outfit plain and comfortable but adding this colorful outerwear took it to the next level. My kind of level. My every day style is minimal with hints of bold and accents of color. My style is honestly eclectic but when I don’t have time to plan a fabulous outfit…I keep things very minimal and quite simple. That’s just easier for me some days. You may have also picked up on the fact that I don’t care to accessorize a whole lot. I’m the pickiest person of all time when it comes to wearing necklaces. I don’t really know what I like. It’s like they can’t make a necklace out there that’s perfect for me. I own maybe thirty necklaces and I only wear two or three. My kind of accessorizing is just some statement studded earrings. That’s about it. I own a thousand of those. These “Rocket” jeans give me some kind of confidence. I’ve never owned a pair of jeans that fit me so well. I think because they’re high waisted I feel like I can do more with them. You all know I love me some high waisted bottoms. Okay, I’m signing off for now my friends. See you in the next post. Don’t forget to like my new Facebook page, the link is below, that will make me all sorts of happy.
I’m not embarrassed to say that I’ve worn this top 3 days in a row. It’s flowy, comfy, roomy, and any other word that ends with “-ey” that you can think of to describe it. This light weight top is all I care about. While strolling around Anthropologie I noticed that I’ve been gravitating more towards the comfortable pieces. With the cold weather here and all, being cozy and comfortable is more important to me. I still have my glam days but I really cannot have too many casual tops. Throwing on a cute hat, ripped jeans and heeled booties is a must for me when it comes to being casual and staying chic. You feel me? I wore this little number out and about in my city… running errands and staying surprisingly warm. It was a nice day to wear something not so heavy for once. Also, I’ve fallen back in love with red lipstick. My holy grail color is a deep plum or mahogany type of lipstick but nowadays I’m loving the look of a simple eye with bold brows and bold deep red lips. I’m telling ya, this outfit would be mediocre without the lipstick. I also have to be honest here, I wore these Alturzarra booties for maybe two hours before I changed into my UGGS. I’m usually one who can handle heels for 8 straight hours but these babies hurt! They’re cute and all but not that cute. I’m a little bummed that they tore up my feet so much. Oh well, beauty is pain. Is that how the saying goes? I can’t remember.
If you’re curious, I’m watching “Jersey Girl”, a classic to me at 1 in the morning because I cannot sleep. I decided to type up a blog post because I truly have nothing else to do. Why did Jennifer Lopez have to die so soon? She’s too beautiful to die in any movie okay! If you’ve been following my blog for awhile you might know that J.LO is my top 3 favorite famous people. I think Kate Hudson is somewhere up there as well. Okay, I’m rambling. I think it’s time for some melatonin. Goodnight or good morning or whatever time it is when you’re read this.
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.
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.
My top reminds me of an artist taking it’s canvas by storm. It reminds me of a love affair between the paintbrush and the neon paint. I love the chaos in this blouse. It’s so beautiful. I’ve been trying harder to buy more color because neutrals never seem to let me down. I think it’s safe to say that I bought a top that’s more than just colorful. I definitely needed it in my closet. It will totally outshine most of the things that I own. Being colorful isn’t such a bad thing people. I would like to let you guys in on who has been my fashion inspiration lately. I recently caved in and bought Netflix. Big mistake. BIG MISTAKE. I haven’t left my bed in days because all I’ve been watching is “The Carrie Diaries.” It’s the prequel to “Sex and The City” and oh my gosh… I’m in love. I thought older Carrie Bradshaw was my idol but I think younger Carrie Bradshaw has my heart. Her style is just impeccable. It’s bright, innocent, put together, and totally 80’s chic. I never thought I would like 80’s fashion until I started watching this show. It’s not just the typical 80’s kind of fashion…IT’S SO MUCH MORE. I truly truly truly cannot get over it. The costume designer for the show needs to become my best friend, like pronto. I wish I was the younger Carrie Bradshaw. She works for a fashion magazine for crying out loud. I strive to be her. If you haven’t watched it, I suggest you should. Put on your favorite pair of hoop earrings, a tutu skirt, leg warmers and get started. You will be addicted in no time. Anyways, young Carrie Bradshaw kind of inspired this bright neon outfit. I hope I didn’t let her down.
