The Warm Up

Although we are not experiencing normal temperatures here on the east coast and global warming is at the back of our minds, I know I’m not the only one feeling a bit relieved that the brick ass weather hasn’t arrived yet. Until Winter starts to feel like itself again, it’s slits and leather jackets for the win!

I’m a big leopard lover in small doses, but this time around I went with a flow-y m-slit maxi dress. I had this outfit in mind for the Fall and though technically Fall ended just yesterday, there never seemed to be a right. I added a leather jacket and booties as oppose to the real warmer look here. Sometimes those Summer dresses come in handy on weird weather days. I kept my makeup minimal during the day and then put on red lipstick for nighttime. Red + leopard = classic.

Has your Christmas outfit ideas changed due to the warmer temperatures?

Is everyone done with their Christmas shopping?

Belt It Out

From the ‘oh this is cute…’ method, I’ve managed to have a collection of 30+ belts. But after looking at past posts, I’ve noticed I haven’t been showing my belts a whole lot of love. So here’s one for those who like to belt it out! I’ve actually been trying to get rid of this belt for so long, convincing myself I didn’t need it or that it didn’t go with anything. Accessories can give a tried and true outfit a breath of fresh air. Let’s face it, sometimes we don’t have enough time in the morning to dig into our closets.

I’m 30 now so whenever I see a bow, my first reaction is to run in the other direction. However, I thought that maybe if I kept it simple and stick to black, I’d still look like a grown woman. The belt worked really well with my dress, over a pair of leather pants, and suede booties. That’s a lot to work with even in all black, but I felt like I pulled it off.

Happy Friday!

PS- Yes, I know the bag I chose is on its last legs but I love it, okay?! There are things I just can’t let go off…at least for now.
