I'm baaaaaack! Sorry it's been so long since I've posted. My brother was visiting from Philadelphia and it seemed like we were on a never-ending quest to soak up the sun and devour all the food in Nor Cal (Northern California). I'd say it was a success :)

Let's get back to this outfit, shall we? :) I styled this look starting with these champagne jogger pants. I always start with a statement piece and style around it so my outfit doesn't look turn out so busy. 

Grey, light blue and champagne; isn't it a pretty color palette? The denim top and champagne pants go so well together, but I added the hat for an urban flair. I'd say the hat also tones down the dressy pants, and makes this look more casual. I finished the look the with these killer holographic heels from Steve Madden, which I've been wearing with almost everything. I'm kind of extreme like that :)

I hope everyone is having a fantastic week! Thanks a bunch for reading!

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!
