Staying Warm in Style

I know it’s hard to believe that it’s still winter, but the groundhog did see his shadow–so I think it’s only fitting to dedicate a post to the chilliness to come (maybe).  Take it from a girl who went to college in Wisconsin, I know it’s easy to get lost in layers and drab colors so my keys to surviving winter are vibrant colors, sensible layers, tights, warm shoes/socks (!), and of course a fabulous scarf.

I love the bright red coat combined with the fabulous scarf and bold tights--this outfit screams confidence and is a wonderful way to keep winter interesting

The look is so classic with a bit of edge--highlighted by layered tights-socks

Love the reindeer accents and the ease this outfit exudes. I am also always in search of the perfect holiday-ish winter wonderland sweater

This outfit is absolute perfection and looks so warm! I love the interesting pattern, the incredible layering, the cozy scarf, the timeless boots, and the fresh super high bun.

warm socks and fabulous boots are my secret to surviving winter. i love the zipper and the contrast of brown and gray.

Similar to bold prints, leopard print is a great way to add a little flair to any outfit and you can make it as bold or as subtle as you want!  I have a leopard print scarf that I seriously wear with everything and it is a great way to elevate any look.

I am obsessed with the cut and fit of the blazer, as well as the black trim--also appropriate for all seasons!

the sweater is such an interesting take on leopard print and i love that it is combined with leopard loafers! if you want a more demur splash of leopard just go for the loafers.

leopard and navy is a wonderful combination! i also love the pleats and the snake skin belt. what a daring and subtle way to combine prints.

you can't go wrong with a sheer belted leopard dress. this would be perfect for the spring and summer and just pair it with a blazer or leather coat to transition to fall.

Hello world!

Welcome to my very first blog!

For me blogs are a consolidation of inspiration, whether it is a new look to try, ways to rework a shirt I have had for years, recipes, places to visit, DIY projects, breathtaking photographs, or product suggestions, it all becomes so accessible and I am thrilled to contribute to such an influential community!  I envision this blog as a compilation of style and aesthetic, mostly pulling pictures from other blogs, with some pictures taken by (and of) me, and some other fun surprises mixed in.  I will do my best to give credit for all photographs I am inspired by.

I believe it’s important to always be true to yourself while pushing for more and constantly trying new things, which is exactly what this blog is!  Enjoy!
