The second I walked into my parents house in this outfit my mom looked at me, laughed and said "Nice outfit!" I said "This is actually my outfit, Mom. It's the cool thing to do" Apparently she thought I just wore jeans to the house and was going to take them off.  I had originally planned on wearing this dress with my J Brand skinny jeans and heels. Then I bought these Sam Edelman espadrilles in Net-a-Porter's sale and thought they would go perfectly with the dress. Then I added in the lighter jeans for a Summery vibe!

Here are a few (better) examples of how to wear this trend thanks to Net-a-Porter's stylists.
I haven't done a dream outfit in a while and I figured while I'm away on vacation it's the perfect time since I don't have any outfits! I saw this black dress on The Outnet a couple weeks ago and it spoke to me. It is a perfect shape, not too tight but not frumpy. I styled it for Winter, but it would be amazing paired with some sandals come Summertime! I may take the plunge and buy it, but I haven't decided yet (probably won't and then I'll regret it.)

I chose a long sleeve turtleneck bodysuit instead of a regular sweater for the bottom layer to avoid unnecessary bunching because who wants that? To add even more warmth I included a coat, tights and a pair of awesome (PURPLE!) over-the-knee boots. I picked a brighter coat than I would normally wear to offset the darkness of the look. But I bet I would just wear it with a leopard print coat or something crazy like that!

I created this post a couple weeks ago while preparing for vacation and afterwards I HAD to buy the Brian Atwood heels. They were 80% off so I paid $439 instead of 2,195...but in my defense I had some money in PayPal, money from returning a dress from Christmas AND Christmas money from my Grandmother. Unfortunately it was all for nothing, they overwhelmed my short frame and I had to return them.

I posted some looks from Valentino's Fall 2015 collection last month and decided to recreate one of the looks. It just so happened that I had jeans EXACTLY like a pair they had, so how could I not try and replicate it? The only difference with my jeans is they're longer, so I took one photo with them pulled up so you could see how it looked! I had a hard time deciding between blazers but in the end went for my blue Marc by Marc Jacobs one, but I took a couple photos with my Etro blazer just to see how it would look. Which do you prefer?

We interrupt vacation recaps for this special post! Check back tomorrow for more from Florida!

Earlier this month, Duo Boots emailed to ask if I wanted to participate in their #MyDuo Style Guide campaign.  I was sent a pair of boots to style up in two different ways. I chose the "Ani" Chelsea boot because I was in desperate need of navy shoes, and the style is really cool. I first wore them out to dinner with my friend Kat (outfit #2) and again the following day for some shopping (outfit #1) where I spent way too much money! I actually changed into a new jacket after I bought it, so you're seeing the results of my shopping!

Here is my second Thanksgiving outfit featuring my leather pants! I wore this for my Thanksgiving #2!  This Marc Jacobs top I bought at the outlets was a perfect match for the pants so, of course, I had to switch up my original outfit! I had previously planned to wear my crazy printed Balenciaga pants with my black Witchery sweater, so that outfit will have to wait it's turn! I realized way too late that I probably got a size too big in the sweater, oh well, at least I like things loose fitting!

As of this past Friday I have been in full Christmas mode! We got our family tree on Friday (photos coming soon) and I decorated my house with my fake tree! Let the 24 hour Christmas music listening and movie watching commence! BUT first, I have to share my Thanksgiving outfits!

Originally I had planned on wearing two different pairs of pants for each of my Thanksgiving celebrations. But after outlet shopping with Lydia I wanted to wear one of my new purchases with the leather pants but didn't want to forgo the other outfit I had planned, since I've been waiting MONTHS to wear it, seriously.  So it turned into a one piece two ways situation!

So, here we go with outfit one featuring my Madewell leather pants! They were originally $598, but I bought them in one of Madewell's extra 40% off clearance items sales so I paid a little over $100 for them. Still a lot, but I've been wanting leather pants for quite some time.

You'll also see I wore my new Mulungi Collection clutch [learn more about it here]! It came the day before our gathering and went perfectly with my outfit, so I had to wear it right away! 

Leather Pants: Madewell, Top: Equipment (sample sale), Sweater: Ralph Lauren (Lord & Taylor), Belt: Kenneth Cole Reaction (Marshalls), Pumps: Coach 'Nacie' (Marshalls), Necklace: Marrin Costello (not available yet),  Clutch: Mulungi Collection c/o S.O.U.L. Foundation

Yes, another feature on jeans! What can I say, they're my Fall/Winter wardrobe staple. They can be dressed up or down, and worn to a variety of events. With that in mind, I've decided to style a pair of NYDJ slimming jeans in three different ways. Read on to see how I would wear jeans on a super casual day, to work and a night out.

NYDJ is “The Original Slimming Fit” jean. What does that mean? Well: Their exclusive Lift Tuck Technology is designed to make you look and feel a size smaller. A patented criss-cross panel helps flatten in the front, while lifting and smoothing in the back. Every pair of NYDJs is made to fit exactly the same from the hips through the thighs. Their universal fit makes it simple to get the same flattering fit in every pair you choose - no matter what style. So whether you are buying wide leg jeans or trouser jeans, you'll feel slimmer while being super comfortable. P.S. With these jeans, they recommend buying a size smaller than you normally would! How is that for a confidence boost?

When it comes to jeans (for me), it's the skinnier, the better. That being said, the Ami Super Skinny Knit Jean is right up my alley! It is their slimmest silhouette and is also 90% cotton, which means they are going to be uber comfortable!

First up, our casual look! This is what I would wear on a chilly weekend day. Just throw on a cute pair of flats and a super over-sized sweater (with pockets!!), then you're good to go! You could also add a fun statement necklace or bracelets if you need to run out for errands. Although even without jewelry I would be happy to go anywhere in this outfit.

Next up is a work-appropriate office look for those of us lucky enough to be able to wear jeans to work. The key here is to elevate the jeans with your other pieces. Start with a pair of heels, not too high, to instantly take them from hanging out to professional. Then finish off with a button down and smart blazer!

For a night out, the higher the heel, the better! But you don't want them so high that you can't walk, so tread lightly. If you're headed to a bar it's probably going to be hot, so you want a flowy top with a bit of sex appeal. And you can always stash a sweater or jacket somewhere in case things get chilly. I couldn't decide between two tops, so I've shown both! One is off the shoulder, the other is a barely there embellished camisole.

Those of you that read my blog regularly will know I have a slight obsession with designer jeans. I have almost 20 pairs and always want more, not a lot considering some people have hundreds, but still a large number. Right now, True Religion is having a 25% off sale on many of their womens jeans. They have everything from ripped jeans, bootcut jeans and skinny jeans for women. I'm most partial to skinny jeans but I've created a few looks using different pairs available on their site.

Look #1: First up is a fun outfit with the 'Casey Vintage Coated Dark No Flap Womens Jean' that features an ombre effect. Ombre tops, skirts and dresses have been a trend for the past few seasons so why not take it to the next level and apply it to your jeans. These are definitely a statement piece, so I've styled them to be the centerpiece of the outfit.

Look #2: Coated jeans are another style that I see sticking around for quite a while. They come in all different colors and styles, but I prefer skinny jeans, surprise, surprise. This style, the 'Halle Super Skinny Womens Jean' has a great worn-in feeling and is in the maroon hue that everyone has been into lately (especially me, but I've loved burgundy for years.) I paired this with a printed tank top and a leather jacket, but you could also top it off with a cute cardigan instead if double leather frightens you. When wearing jeans like this I think it's important to embrace the uniqueness and just go for it! Pretend they're just plain denim jeans and go crazy!

Look #3: I promised I wouldn't just feature skinny jeans, so here we have a nice flare, my second favorite style! The 'Charlie Flare Womens Jean' is a really fun 70s style jean in a super light wash. With this style of jean it's really fun to go all out with 70s style, bold graphics or aztec designs to give off that nature-loving vibe. For this look I paired it with a pretty epic knitted coat. Since this is a long coat and the pants are wide legged, you want to be careful about proportions so I would style it with super tall heels to get the length back into your legs. A pointed toe will also help in this instance, although you will only be able to see a peek of it through the jeans. You'll also notice I broke a "rule" and paired navy with brown - but I say anything goes!

Hawaiian shirts are apparently having a comeback. Something I didn't realize until I began searching for style inspiration for this Miu Miu top I picked up thrifting last year for $10.  It has taken me a long time to be brave enough to wear it, but I had to have it since it's my favorite color, and it's MIU MIU! My top is on the wilder side of things shape-wise, but you can find a more subtle top if you want to try the style out. I wanted to wear it with jeans, but since it's the middle of Summer I opted for a denim skirt instead.

Top Miu Miu (thrifted, similar), Skirt: Mother Denim c/o Marshalls, Tank Top: Vince c/o Marshalls, Shoes: Manolo Blahnik (Roundabout Resale), Bag: Chanel, Sunglasses: Marc by Marc Jacobs (Shopbop), Initial Necklace c/o Gorjana, Number Necklace: Bijou Limon (etsy), Watch: Skagen (Rue La La), Rings: vintage, Brilliant Imports & Mom's

Here is how the top was styled on the Spring 2003 runway, I toned it down a bit for my look.
