sealed with COLOR

Hey fashionistas! I hope everyone's day is going great. (minus the rain in the east coast right now) I wanted to share with you a post I wrote as a guest editor at Shopaholic, an online UK shopping site with great fashion tips and features. I wanted to write about one of my favorite things.... COLOR!
Check out the post here!

...a huge thank you to the Shopaholic team for the editor's pick award and letting me write for their excellent site xo

perfect combo...

Outfit #1: Turtleneck: H&M  /  Dress: Petticoat Alley  /  Belt: American Eagle  /  Blazer: H&M  /  Heels: Target  /  Clutch: Marc Jacobs  /  Jewels: Natasha, H&M, AE  /  Shades: Madewell  /  Nailpolish: Essie "Bikini so Teeny"
Outfit #2: Coat: Kenneth Cole (similar)  /  Scarf: H&M  /  Bottoms: American Eagle  /  Booties: Steve Madden  /  Purse: L.A.M.B  /  Jewels: Juicy CoutureKate Spade, AE  /  Shades: Ralph Lauren  /  Lipstick: NARS "Funny Face"

Throughout the weekend, a black and blue combo was my go-to look. For years they told us that black and blue do not go together, but I'm getting rid of those rules once and for all! For a day look put on your cobalt pants and black booties, and for night a great blue and black printed dress will do just the trick. Hope you all have a great week and thank you so much for reading!

camo layers...

Hat: American Eagle  /  Jacket: American Eagle  /  Leather Jacket: Max Studio  /  Shirt: c/o American Eagle  /  Jeans: American Eagle  /  Shoes: Etienne Aigner  /  Gloves: H&M  /  Shades: Madewell

Today it's warm (camo) layers for me. Let me just say, I used to hate camouflage! But after seeing this coat, I decided I wanted to find one similar.... and mission accomplished!
Have a great weekend everyone and stay warm! xo

Who doesn't love a good handbag?! I know I do! The little details are what makes a handbag special and perfect for a wardrobe. Whether it be the tassels, colors, hardware, or scallop edges, each add that unique touch to any look. I'd love to hear what your favorite details are in handbags and which you recommend... I'm looking for a new one! ;)

when it's freezing...

Vest: Betsey Johnson  /  Coat: Max Studio (old, similar)  /  Turtleneck: H&M  /  Bottoms: American Eagle  /  Booties: Steve Madden (similar)  /  Purse: DKNY  /  Gloves: Chico's (old, love these)  /  Shades: Madewell  /  Lipstick: NARS "Heat Wave"

The temperature in Pittsburgh right now is crazy! Two weeks ago it was in the 70's and now it's below freezing. (NOT my kind of weather) I decided to bundle up in a warm fur vest and a long coat. You will find me curled up with hot tea and magazines for the next few days...who is with me? Stay warm everyone!

Jacket: Max Studio (similar)  /  Tee: American Eagle (old)  /  Skirt: MNG by Mango  /  Booties: Steve Madden  /  Shades: House of Harlow 1960  /  Clutch: Marc Jacobs  /  Jewels: My Name Necklace, Madewell, House of Harlow 1960, Natasha  /  Nail Polish: Sephora by OPI "Read My Palm"  /  Lipstick: Sephora

I love a fun, flowy maxi any time of the year. I paired it with boots and a leather jacket to make it more winter appropriate. Trade in your typical going out jeans for a soft skirt and edgy accents. Let me know how you style your maxi's!
