Faux Fur is Purrr-fect

Style varies with everyone. It is a way to express yourself the way you see fit. For me when the weather gets cold, I love to layer. Nine times out of ten I am dressed in layers with an oversized sweater, vest, boots, hat, and I will even wear my signature long pea coat. The winter months are my favorite because it’s my excuse to wear boots and sweaters everyday. Plus the right set of boots can turn any average girl into her super model alter ego.

Olive greens are a nice winter season color that should be in everyone’s closet. It has the power to give everyone a certain glow and I can guarantee you will get compliments wearing it. This specific sweater has slits up the side, allowing the back of the sweater to be longer than the front. This feature makes the sweater look less bulky, plus gives anyone wearing it a waistline. Now you can wear it by itself, but I like to pair it with a vest.  The specific sweater I am wearing is from Express, however I tagged one very similar to it that will work just as great.

I strongly believe that every girl should have a nice faux fur vest in her closet. It can change the entire dynamic of any girls outfit. You can wear them with dresses, sweaters, or casual shirts. If I wear my vest with a casual top, I will often times pair it with a statement necklace, but since I am wearing a hat with this look, that is my statement piece.

Hats are my all time favorite fashion piece and I am not talking about ball caps. Hats are just as important as any other piece of your outfit if you wear them. Here I have a soft grey, round top, floppy hat with a laced leather band around it. The hat helps tie together my sweater and vest. It is just a nice touch to have, especially when you pair two dark clothing pieces together, a lighter piece of apparel can help soften the look.

Footwear is important as well. I love pairing looks with tall boots, such as the ones in this piece. I do not wear a lot of silver jewelry, gold is my go-to and when I saw these boots, I knew I had to have them. The gold touch to the boots can help make-up for the fact I did not wear any jewelry with this look. There is something about an understated look that just makes my heart skip a beat. You never want to be to flashy, but little accents are a must, much like these boots.

Black & Gold

That’s the beauty of fashion. You can make it how you want, because at the end of the day, you have to love what you wear and own it.

For the look I have given you guys today, I am wearing a black and gold jumpsuit with black suede booties and a black with leather detail jacket paired with a dome shaped umbrella. When it rains it is always good to pair your outfit with a cute umbrella. Plus, clear umbrellas can be found at many different places.

As I break down this outfit, I must say I love jumpsuits, they’re every tall girls friend. They help elongate the legs and are super comfy. This jumpsuit can also be worn year round because it is sleeveless and can be worn in the summer months. The specific jumpsuit I am wearing in this image is actually from Old Navy, but I tagged one that is similar to it from Revolve. Now to the shoes.

Suede is a huge trend this season, so these black suede booties are a hit, and so reasonable too. The specific ones I am wearing are from Aldos, but I have tagged a pair of Steve Madden booties that are just as amazing. They can go with jeans, or you can dress them up like I did.

Since it is winter, this black leather patched jacket helps dress up the jumpsuit and is perfect for a girl’s night out on the town.  I don’t shy away from mix matching metals.  The jumpsuit may have gold in it, but the buttons on the jacket may be silver, you can tie the metals together through jewelry and the overall outfit will still look fierce.

Macaroons and Maroon

I do not know about you, but I love maroon.  It is one of those universal colors that everyone can pull off, yes even red heads.  It is a color that will truly never go out of style.  It can be worn as a shirt or sweater color, in a dress, or even pants.

For this piece, it is featured in a dress.  It is a cute baby doll dress paired with navy blue flats and a statement piece necklace.  Believe it or not, the necklace is from a boutique that many girls are familiar with, Francesca’s and the flats are featured from Gap.  The dress is from a boutique known as, “Shop Maude“.  I stumbled upon them via instagram and have been hooked ever sense.  They have an array of different clothing pieces that will please different fashion sense.  They are really good with staying on trend through the year as well.  That is actually where I find a lot of my pieces, following different and unique clothing boutiques.  They sometimes hold the most unique pieces and when I can’t find something I am looking for at Forever 21 or H&M, I simply just type in one of the boutiques and will find it there.  I love having those kinds of different places under my belt because you know you are getting something unique and something that many people won’t have in their own closets.
