Plaid Blazer & Velvet Booties = Winter Uniform

Outfit Details

So I thought finding a colorful plaid blazer online was going to be super easy because you know, it’s the holiday season and all, but nope. All the blazers online right now are usually grey/black/brown/taupe but not the super cliché “Christmas-y” blazer that I was looking for. Thank God for Goodwill because that is exactly where I got mine from. I must admit though, Forever 21 came through with the colorful options but they only had one I actually liked. However, I did find a very similar one here. This is my go-to casual Friday looks when I am feeling super lazy. There is something to be said about blazers and denims to make anyone look put together on casual Fridays. Winter has finally arrived in Charlotte so instead of wearing heels, I wore a cashmere top, I opted for the velvet booties, gloves (yes, it’s like 20-something degrees out there) and a purple handbag. I also wore my MaxMara Icon 10108 coat not featured here (but featured here) because it was that cold.

The cold days

We’ve been attacked by a “cold front” here in Florida – so that means, boots, coats, scarves, etc…I should mention that by cold front, I mean high of 50’s. Yes, I know we are very weak down here but hey, it happens. I went out last night to celebrate my girlfriend’s big 3-0 birthday. I knew I wanted to wear these thigh-high boots and a dress, so I pulled this out of the closet. I wore this dress once already with purple heels but I wanted to try something different this time around. The dress a pretty flair so I knew the boots would look really nice. Since it was cold out, I threw on this coat and I also wore black pantyhose to keep me extra warm. To finish this look, I wore a bold lip color and clutch.

Happy Fashion.

Hi Loves and Happy Tuesday!

I love a nice pair of pleated pants, especially if they’re nice and fitted at the leg yet versatile enough to make it work for the that 9-5 or for a casual day. I paired the pants with a beautiful crop top I purchased about a year ago and quite frankly, I need to get this shirt taken in a bit. Now, I added this hot pink coat ( which also needs to be taken in ever so slightly ;( ) to show you that this outfit can be worn on chillier days with a nice coat. Please note, I was HOT AS HELL! It is 82 degrees out there today, I was melting! I only took pictures with the coat, there is no way I was wearing that, ha ha ha ha ha. I decided to make it this outfit a bit more glamours by accessorizing it with that bold bracelet and shoes; I gave it a contrast with the clutch,
