Instagram Outfit Breakdown

Friday night, I was decked out for a spring formal! My outfit consisted of leather, satin, and plenty of sass.

  1. Urban Outfitters Wheat Chain Wrap Choker Necklace
  2. Trouve Drape Front Leather Jacket
  3.  Urban Outfitters Kimchi Blue Tie-Shoulder Silky Mini Dress
  4. Michael Kors Cindy Large Dome Crossbody
  5. Sam Edelman Susie Ankle Strap Sandal

I was pleasantly surprised with the quality and look of this dress. On the hanger, it looked bland, but on, it was very flattering and fit perfectly. Having to adjust the shoulder tie got annoying, but it made for easy adjustments if needed. Just be careful pulling it too much or the length will be way too short. Paired with the leather jacket and heels, the look was perfect for the weather (rainy). This would be great for a night out with friends or a date!

Appreciate The Gray Skies

The weather has been quite gray lately, but that shouldn’t ruin your fall. Enjoy the gray skies and crisp cool breeze. Soon, we will be dealing with mounds of snow and ice. So, why not match your outfit to the color of the day?

I did just that by keeping with the cool, dark tones. I decided to wear a stripe, tweed blue and gray skirt. I paired it with a long black sweater that has faux leather detailing on the arms. This type of sweater is perfect with a form fitting skirt because it drapes right over it! I added a leather jacket to keep warm and even a patterned scarf to add another touch of blue. I finished off the look with a pair of chestnut riding boots and my black Tory Burch tote.

This is my FAVORITE SKIRT! It fits many body types and actually slims the hips, rather than making them look bigger. The horizontal striped pattern can be unflattering at times on certain body types, but even a solid would work. It’s the perfect way to dress up, yet add a cool edge to your style!

Enjoy the rest of your Monday and do not forget to embrace those occasional gray skies!

Red Lips and a Little Edge…

I love experimenting with style. One moment I’ll be popping a collar on my blouse, and the next I’ll be sporting a leather skirt with studs. There really are endless possibilities. My favorite look right now would have to be the all black look. My wonderful friend Easton and I share this love of a simple, yet classic color that makes everyone look good. There’s just something about wearing gorgeous black pieces with a pop of color simply on your lips that makes any girl look glamorous, and as though they shouldn’t be messed with!

I am wearing my favorite high waisted black trousers. These are perfect for work or going out with the girls. They have an elastic waist, which can be tightened with a drawstring and have zipper pockets on the side. I paired these with my favorite Astr top. It is short sleeve with a beautiful jeweled neckline. You don’t even have to worry about jewelry with this one! It also buttons up the back, which adds a classic touch to the modern piece. I layered on my leather jacket over to keep warm and threw on some adorable leather flats. To finish it off, I put on some classy ruby red lipstick, and a pair of aviators.

This is the look to have right now!Black on black is the easiest way to achieve perfection without have to match patterns and colors. The top is especially my favorite because of the jeweled neckline. It adds a touch of glamour to the entire look without having to layer pieces of jewelry.

Try the look! You’ll be surprised at how one color can change everything!
