Floral Booties & Puffer Jacket

Happy New Year! I wish everyone a wonderful, prosperous, healthy + lots of wealth New Year! I stayed home New Year’s Eve because it was unbearably cold outside and I had no interest in freezing. Now that the New Year is here, the season of layers has officially arrived; puffer jackets, coats, scarves, mittens, gloves and dry skin. When I arrived to Charlotte my winter wardrobe was very minimal but now that I’ve been here for two winter seasons, I’ve definitely improved my winter wardrobe. One of my favorite winter pieces is this puffer jacket; it’s lightweight and warm.

Outfit Details

I started the year by wearing the 2018 Pantone Color of the year, Ultra Violet. This was definitely not on purpose, just a mere coincidence but I figure I pointed it out. I purchased this J.Crew Lamb Wool sweater at my local Goodwill for $4.00, and I’ve never been happier about a purchase. It was so cold outside that if it wasn’t for this sweater and puffer jacket, I might have frozen. So far, the puffer jacket is probably one of my favorite purchases this season. I will probably be wearing this one a lot this season, so stay tuned. I am also not over wearing velvet, so here’s another (more simple) outfit. I purchased these velvet boyfriend cropped pants from the Gap and they have a more relaxed fit to them. I wanted to add a little bit of pizzazz to this outfit so I added the floral booties, fishnet pearl socks and this gold clutch.

P.S. I realized that I am wearing lot of Gap pieces but that is just a coincidence.

The Frill Flare Hem Jeans & The Floral Booties

I love a good pair of bell bottom jeans and when I came across these frill flare hem jeans, I was SOLD. I was a bit nervous about these slightly because all I could think of was, are they going to shrink me. However, once I tried them on and envisioned them with booties and heels, it was a done deal.

Outfit Details

I have been obsessed with floral booties lately and I had to talk myself out of buying at least 3 more pairs. They are just so pretty to look at! I wore these pretty little booties with my frill flare jeans, yet another vintage sweater 😉 and my hot pink moto jacket. The vintage sweater is just pretty to look at with its sequin and embellished detailing. I must add that it is a very warm and cozy sweater. The Moto jacket is actually an old purchase from Goodwill ( purchased back home) and I love the gold buttons with the HOT pink color. Accessorized with my black bucket Coach handbag.
