Leopard

Travel

I can't believe this is the last blog post for the year. I hope everyone will have a great year and a great New Year's Eve. With that said I hope you like this post/outfit!

I've been seeing a lot of leopard lately and love how it can add a little pop to any outfit. I wanted to keep this outfit simple, so the main item of the outfit would pop. The leopard booties I thought were just so cute! I also wanted to make the outfit edgy, so I added the leather jacket and fringe bag.

1. Leather Jacket | Topshop $180
2. Plain T-Shirt | Alexander Wang $90 (any plain top is fine)
3. Black Jeans | Topshop $76
4. Fringe Bag | Stella McCartney $2,000 (any fringe bag is fine)
5. Leopard Booties | Zara $80

Hunter Boots

Travel

Some of you have probably noticed that I have a small obsession with Hunter boots! I don't really know why, but I just love how they look and that they are good for any season/weather. They are really good for fall, winter and spring. I don't have a favorite style because I think all the styles that they have are just so cute. If I had a million dollars I would definitely buy all the ones above. You can get these on Hunter boots website (link here)

Plaid & Sparkle

Travel

A while back I posted about plaid & fur and I wanted to post about plaid again. I was thinking what would a cute combination be for the fall/winter time and plaid & sparkle came to mind. I got the plaid top above from Target a while ago and it's my favorite, it's so comfy and soft. I also found this super cute skirt that I thought was perfect for winter because it's cream and has sparkle.

1. Plaid Top | Target $20 (other option 1)(any plaid top is fine)
2. Army Jacket | Topshop $130 (any parka is fine)
3. Rain Boots | Hunter $135

Holiday Outfit

Travel

Instead of the LBD I chose super cute black accessories and just a plain black top. I hope you like! (this is my version of this outfit, so you can definitely change it up for your style and budget). What are you going to wear?

Shopbop

shopbop
Shopbop is one of my favorite shops because everything they have is so simple, but still statement pieces. I love pretty much anything that is simple especially jewelry. I love when jewelry is simple because simple jewelry is great stacking jewelry. Another thing I love when it comes to jewelry is when you put gold and silver together. I just think that combination is so cute. Shopbop also has some great pieces that combine gold and silver.

Pajamas

Travel
I always talk about how I like to be comfy and on one post I said I like to feel like I'm wearing pajamas. So I thought pajamas would be a great post. I recently was thinking about what the perfect Christmas morning outfit is and I found it 1 and 2 above combined. Another cute Christmas morning outfit is some red pajamas and cream slippers. A great place for pajamas that are super cute would be Victoria Secrets, so if you are looking for new pajamas definitely check Victoria Secrets out.

1. Polka Dot Pajamas | Target $25
2. Red Slippers | Debenhams $13
3. Grey Slippers | Debenhams $23
4. Blue Pajamas | J.Crew $85 (other option 1)

Elbow Patches

Photobucket One of my favorite things is elbow patches. I think they are just so cute and a great detail for tops and jackets. When I saw the photo above I wanted that top so bad. If I see anything with patches I instantly fall in love and want it. I guess you could say patches are one of my weaknesses.

I like to wear a loose top because after eating all the food I don't want something tight and I want to be super comfy.

Target

Travel
Twice a month I go on different stores websites to get inspiration or just to browse. Target was one of them. I found these amazing jackets that I thought were so cute. You can make them super edgy or super feminine. It's all about how you style them (I would style them like this or this). These jackets kind of reminded me of some that I found at Mango, but the difference is these are super affordable.

Target and Neiman Marcus are also coming out with a new holiday collection together (link here).

1. Peacoat | $50
2. Black Jacket | $35
3. Black & White Jacket | $35
4. Red Jacket | $35

Comfy

Travel
This outfit is definitely more of a spring/summer outfit, but is still good for those warm days in the fall. If it's chilly outside you can always switch the shorts for light washed skinny jeans, add a jacket (here is a good one 1), and add a scarf.

Sometimes I like to be so comfy that I feel like I am wearing pajamas. This is definitely a good outfit for that because it's super casual. You will definitely see outfits like this on my blog during spring and summer time.

1. T-shirt | Mytheresa $133 (other option 1)
2. Cut-offs | Quiksilver $34
3. Tote Bag | Etsy $20
4. Booties | Zappos $325 (other options 1,2,3)

Leather

Travel
I am so sorry for not posting last week. I was so busy and couldn't get to a computer. So with that said this post is all about leather. I am so excited that it's fall because I can finally wear leather. I can't wear leather during spring and summer because where I live it's always 90+ outside and humid. I don't think anyone wants to wear leather when it's hot and humid outside.

To me leather is more edgy which is good because I am not a fan of super girly clothes. I like outfits that have the perfect mixture of edgy and girly. But it all depends on what I feel like that day. One day I will love girly clothes and the other day I won't. My favorite combination with leather this fall is a plaid top and some booties.

1. Leather Top | Sheinside $54
2. Leather Jacket | Topshop $310
3. Leather Tote | All Saints $295
4. Leather Necklace | Piperlime $75
5. Leather Pants | French Connection $368

Hair Cuffs

One of my new obsessions would be hair cuffs. It can make any boring pony tail not boring. I feel like it looks a little edgy which is good because lately I've been liking edgy outfits. What are your opinions on hair cuffs?

Traveling In Style

Travel
This post is about how to dress when you are traveling. I haven't traveled in a long time, but when I do I like to be comfy and look good. This is a go to outfit for travel in the future.

1. A wrap sweater (the wrap above is from here). I like a wrap sweater for when I get cold or need a blanket in the plane. This is also good to wear in the airport because airports sometimes are cold.

2. Light top (the top above is from here). A light top is a go to because you don't get hot and sweaty in it. It's also very comfy and simple.

3. Stretchy pants (the pants above are from here)(if you don't want to wear pants, cut offs are another great choice). Pants that are stretchy are good because they aren't to tight. I know I like to stretch in the plane, so stretchy pants are good for that.

4. Carry on bag (the one above is from here)(check out Zara for other carry on bags they have a lot). I like to bring my laptop, headphones, snacks, and etc on the plane. This bag is big enough for that.

5. Flats and socks (the flats and socks above are from here and here). Make sure you wear comfy shoes that you can slide on and off. Flats are the best for that. Also bring socks to put on in the plane because your feet might get cold and you might not want to wear shoes in the plane.

6. Another tip is to wear your hair up because your hair can get nasty and can get in your way. I like to put my hair in a topknot because it's completely out of my face.

Queen of Hearts

Hearts
Last week I got a sweater like the one above and thought a post about hearts would make a good post. I think hearts are just so cute. You can dress them up or down. For example the dress above would be dressier and the sweater would be more casual. But you could also put the sweater over the dress and have a half dressy half casual outfit. I think that would make a really cute girly outfit.

1. Black Heart Dress | ModCloth $65
2. Heart Phone Case | Zappos $34
3. Black Heart Earrings | Republic $7.85
4. Black and Gold Heart Belt | Asos $10.22
