Hello everyone and happy Saturday! The rain has been crazy this past week and many of the streets near my house are currently flooded. However, on Wednesday, it finally calmed down long enough for me to go out and shoot! Keep reading for outfit details and a 'Get the Look.'
While it was raining, it wasn't exactly cold, so I didn't have to layer up as much as usual. I really took advantage of this by wearing my chelsea rain booties from Kate Spade! I love these boots and I rarely get to wear them because it either never rains (socal problems) or it's raining too hard and short boots don't cut it. I folded up my Topshop jeans to show off the shoe which also gave me a bit of height. These jeans are so comfy and come in petite (hellooo) and tall sizes, so you're likely to find a pair that fits you. I went with a bright blue denim to bring some color to my outfit (and the gloomy day, ha!).
I added a high-neck top as I've been loving them lately. These tops easily transform any look to make you appear both stylish and sophisticated. As a bonus, your necklaces will stand out and you won't have to worry about them sneaking underneath your top. Whenever I wear this cut, I like to wear my hair pulled back either in a low bun or ponytail. This way, you won't lose your neck (If you watched America's Next Top Model, you'll understand the importance of not losing your neck!) I always wear a statement earring with this hairstyle as, one, you can actually see them so why not take advantage and, two, it adds something to an otherwise simple look up top. I chose a pair of gray oval earrings to complement the weather. Finally, I completed the look with a black moto jacket and a clear bubble umbrella to show it all off (:

Thanks for reading and I hope you all have a lovely weekend!
Hello, everyone! Today's blog is my first of the new year and I'm so excited to share my first winter look with you. This post is all about upping your sweater game. Sweaters are easy to throw on when it's cold out, but year after year can become a little tired. One easy way to switch up your look is with a detailed sleeve. Keep reading for outfit details and more unique sweaters to stand out this season.
Get the Look:
I got this sweater for Christmas and immediately fell in love with the bow sleeves. I styled it with my forest-green, corduroy skirt (similar). I've been obsessed with corduroy lately and the material makes a skirt appropriate for winter. It also looks great with tights if you desire a bit more warmth! I wanted to tie in the green with my earrings (a subtle, yet necessary addition to the look). These green-tortoise shell earrings from Amazon were perfect! I completed my outfit with my favorite pair of black boots to dress up the look and my clear mini-tote (matches everything!)
Try One of these:
Above are a few more great sweaters to choose from, but the mint color of the first sweater makes it my favorite! Would you try one of these? Let me know in the comments!
Now that it's finally cold in Corona, Christmas music, hot chocolate, and cozy sweaters are in FULL effect. I'm happy that I can now get into the holiday spirit and dress for it too! I was feeling inspired by all the fall/winter booties dropping on my favorite sites, so today's post will be all about sharing my favorite pairs and how to style them. This post is a long one, so go grab a cup of hot chocolate (or coffee), snuggle up with your favorite fuzzy blanket and keep on reading...
Wear Everyday & Every way
From warm browns and solid black to snake and leopard print, everyday boots are easy to style because they go with everything! My favorite way to wear them is with jeans, but I also love how they look styled with a skirt and tights. Below, I show you I styled them each way (:
For my first outfit, I wore this pair of brown chelsea boots with an olive green, corduroy coat and jeans. I like to fold my jeans with these boots because they aren't long enough for my pants to stay in them which can cause them to scrunch up at the bottom and you don't want that! Folding your jeans so that you show a little skin also makes your legs look longer (WOOP!)
Button Up: Shein
For my second look, I styled a pair of black boots (similar) with a skirt and tights. I chose denim to dress down the look for a weekday, but the skirt can be switched out for a black, dark green or burgundy one for a holiday party or weekend outfit this season. I love the fun print of these tights and they keep me warm! You can shop them and the rest of my look below.

Skirt (similar): ASOS

From classic holiday colors and bright jewel tones to velvet and suede, these bold boots are perfect for holiday parties and New Years (but don't let that stop you from wearing them other days too!)
For my final outfit, I styled a pair of velvet boots and you can find a similar pair here. I love velvet for the holidays and my forest green moto jacket went perfectly with the boots to create a low-key holiday look. I wore black denim so that the boots would really pop, and, since these boots are a bit taller, I was able to tuck my jeans into them. Try styling your boots this way for a clean, sleek look.
