Easy Comfortable and Stylish Outfit

February 12, 2016
fringe hem tunic sweater, leather jacket, faux fur scarf, leather leggings, cream boot

Today’s look features an easy comfortable and stylish outfit. Yes, you read that correctly. I’ve never believed style and comfort to be mutually exclusive. This side slit fringe hem sweater was made to be worn with leather leggings, aka God’s gift to women. As long as your tush is covered, leggings have your back (see what I did there). Combined with my faux leather moto jacket, the outfit has a stylish edgy quality to it. All the while I am wearing a loose…

Nude Legs in the Winter with Sheer Pantyhose

February 10, 2016
velvet navy jumper, floral bow blouse, chloe dupe bag, l'eggs hose

It’s that time of the year. We are all getting tired of our winter clothes and longing for spring. I snagged this adorable velvet jumper on the Gap clearance rack just after Christmas. The material feels like winter, but I couldn’t figure out how to style it. Black or navy tights felt strange, too dark somehow. I was ready for bare legs, but the weather wasn’t cooperating. I never dreamed nude legs in the winter with sheer pantyhose would be…

The Power of Fashion

February 8, 2016
bell sleeve top, slit skirt, wedge boots, chloe dupe bag

You know those outfits that make you excited to go somewhere just because you want to leave the house in them? This is one of those for me. The power of fashion is that it can help motivate, put a smile on your face, and give you confidence when you need it. I love that about it. I’ve been resisting the urge to wear this blouse (only $19!) with pretty much everything I own: flare jeans, under jumpers, with other skirts. You…

February 5, 2016
oasap floral midi dress, topshop mod cream boots, concho belt, ray-ban sunglasses

I am midi dress obsessed, and I’m not even going to try to deny it. It’s become a real thing. Here are 5 reasons I love midi dresses: Midi dresses are an office appropriate length, yet also fun for the weekend. Midi dresses span multiple seasons. Pair them with sandals in the spring or summer, ankle boots in the fall, and OTK boots and a top layer in the winter. Midi dresses are comfortable. I love jeans as much as…

How to Style a Minimalist Outfit

February 3, 2016
fringe top, culottes, black crossbody, grey loafers, Karen walker sunglasses

In my head, my style is definitely more minimalist and modern than girly. I know I wear a lot of skirts and dresses, but I don’t believe that equates to girly. I tend toward more muted colors, simple silhouettes, and non-frilly patterns. I mentioned that my Charles & Keith pieces inspired several similar pairings (see the first here and the second here), so today I thought I would talk about how to style a minimalist outfit. These grey pony hair…

Street Style Fashion

February 1, 2016
tan coat, grey turtleneck, coated black jeans, white tennis shoes

I’ve always been fascinated by street style fashion while simultaneously finding it difficult to put my finger on what exactly it is that gives an outfit that elusive street style feel. I often think it’s unexpected pieces paired together: dressy pumps and distressed denim, a fancy bag with an everyday look, sneakers where heels might make more sense. Oh, and the street. That’s a given. Whatever the combination, the outcome is always modern and fresh. Today I attempted a street…

Charles & Keith

January 29, 2016
wink drop hem dress, leather leggings, black boots

I’m excited to be partnering with Charles & Keith, an innovative brand founded by two siblings to create modern footwear for women, for the next couple posts. They also have some amazing accessories. You may have seen my Instagram last weekend, but I am pretty much obsessed with everything they sent (with easy shipping to the US). Today I am styling these amazing black boots. I love the low heel height. It is perfect for on-the-go weekends, and they definitely have…

Major Sleeve Game

January 27, 2016
ruffle sleeve shirt, culottes, chloe due bag, cream boots

I know what you’re thinking. Girl’s got major sleeve game. This knit top makes me happier than it really has a right to, and the whole outfit feels very me. I wore this outfit to work one day, and no one said a word. Sometimes I’m pretty sure they think I have lost my ever-loving mind. It’s okay though because I felt pretty good about the whole thing. What’s not to like about rust colored culottes? I’m pretty obsessed with…

Mom Jeans

January 25, 2016
chicwish striped top, mom jeans, army green parka, topshop cream boots, chloe dupe bag, ray-ban aviators

I’ve been loving all the denim trends lately. From flares to cropped flares, culottes, and mom jeans, I am on board. It’s fun to be able to mix things up with fashion’s most iconic item. I’d been on the hunt for the right mom jean: not too loose, high waisted and light colored, real denim. I happened upon Old Navy’s high-rise vintage straight crop jean in store. I sized down from my normal and just didn’t roll them as you…

Workwear Outfit

om om shoes, black slit front ants, grey layered blouse, blue bag

Hello and happy Friday! I am officially back from Disney World and trying to get back to reality. Man was that a fun trip. I loved spending time with my mom, sister, and niece. Did you follow along on Instagram or snapchat (straightastyle)? It’s not the restful kind of vacation, but it’s the kind of stuff in life you want to be tired from doing. The stuff memories are made of. You guys, these are the perfect work pants! They are…
