Cold and gloomy weather can make this girl feel downright dreary, but winter days are slightly brighter in this stunning overcoat. Double-breasted lapels, padded shoulders and 100% cashmere—isn’t she just darling! With such an elegant structure, she can be worn over a night out with the girls, or over a pair of Levi’s and a white boyfriend tee while running errands during the day. For my outfit, I went with the classic black and white, with a pop of color on my handbag. Words can’t describe how much I adore this handbag. My philosophy: If I’m going to splurge on a purse, it should be anything but boring! Its shape is so modern yet classic. I love the playful color-blocking going on. Cream and orange pair beautifully, with contrasting black accents to make a statement. Looks so chic with super pointy white pumps! Enjoy your weekend, and thanks so much for reading!

Hi, everyone! I hope your weekend is off to a great start!

Sometimes when dressing up, I ditch the dress and opt for a menswear-inspired look. I paired this structured vest with extra long wide-leg pants, and offset the masculinity with a lacy black bralette and high heel femininity. I love how the vest is cut and how it accentuates my shoulders. I also posted one of my favorite menswear looks this year worn by the fabulous Nicole Richie. Have an wonderful weekend, and thank you so much for reading!
