BOLD BLAZIN

It is the era of the blazer phenomenon. Taking a trend that has been alive for decades and constantly redefining it. The blazer has evolved into much more with a variety of colors, textures, patterns, and overall fit to choose from. I tend to pick one statement piece for each look I pull together - and a bold blazer always seems to do the trick. The structure of this Double Breasted Windowpane Plaid blazer from Topshop is more of an oversized fit which I tend to prefer being that I am more of a casual dresser. The green accent color is a perfect hue for Spring. These patent leather pants add that bit of edge to make this look go from day to night. The weather in New York is confusing lately so boots are still an option (however I feel like I'll be wearing boots or sneakers even as the temp increases). Keep scrolling for more from this shoot; direct link to blazer attached below.

IN BETWEEN SEASONS x RAG & BONE

In between seasons is a hella confusing time of year but its all the more reason to never take off my favorite shiny black puffer from Zara. No seriously, this is probably my most noteworthy purchase of 2017. Its also an excuse to wear crop tops and rad ski pants until Spring comes through. The most comical part of it all is that I've actually never been skiing before...mainly because I'm afraid of falling and shattering into a million pieces but these Rag & Bone pants were too good to let go. Maybe if it snows again I'll just put them on and stand outside. Another thing to add on to my completely abnormal list of things you shouldn't have done and reasons why you're weird. It's fine, i've accepted it. Side note: since I was a kid I had an obsession with cutting up clothes and re-working my wardrobe hence why I'm always wearing crop tops that are slightly crooked. Clothing would be really boring if you didn't have fun with it. I just don't settle for boring. My brain wouldn't allow that if I tried.

I'm fully for enhancing your favorite pieces and adding your own accessories like I did with these Rag & Bone pants. I have a huge hoarding problem and own way too many miscellaneous chains, buttons, fabrics, etc. from random shops in NYC. Don't get rid of them! They may be that final touch you were looking for.

This off-white, red and black color combo is the real statement on these pants.

PANTSUIT x PINSTRIPES

If I could wear a suit everyday, I probably would. Not to say that they all look great on me, because trust there are hits and several misses. Sometimes I think I look like Diane Keaton but I get more Danny Devito vibes, it happens. I've never loved wearing dresses even as a youngin', it was always the masculine apparel that caught my eye. I was far more interested in the neutral & dark tones when it came to clothing. Not to say I don't love a cool monochrome look or playing around with color, but black is deff a go-to. Leith is a brand that doesn't get as much attention as it should. What I love about their brand is how sleek and on-trend they are. Each piece can be mix & matched as you choose. You can shop their clothing at Nordstrom. I styled this Leith Pinstripe Suit (now on sale fyi) with a thin white turtleneck to make the stripes & pearlescent buttons pop.

Dare to suit up?

PUFF PUFF, PASS THE LOVE

Sometimes you need to take a step back from everything in life to appreciate what you have in the moment and to understand that not all your dreams can be accomplished overnight. More importantly, you have to love yourself before anything. I read an article recently written by Alexandra Harra on Huff Post titled "The Art of Self-Love"  (highly recommended for everyone) and it really inspired me to take some time for myself and do more of what makes me happy.

What stood out to me in her piece was when she said "I would come to find out that there was nothing missing within me — nothing wrong with me and nothing that I didn’t deserve. Through honest reflection and a mindful shift, I rediscovered the secret hiding place of my self-love. It was all there where I had left it — perfectly". With the New Year approaching, I made a pact to: do more of what I love, cut out negative influences, release love to myself, and thrive on creativity. 

Now on to the good stuff, the Puffer Coat is probably my most overused piece this season. It's always my go-to when I'm running out of the house. I find that they're super cozy, surprisingly keep you warm, and instantly make any look a bit more edgy. The only issue I have is that I want them all...in my closet...now. Free People kills it with outerwear EVERY YEAR. This cropped slouchy green number from Free People was actually purchased at a discounted price on Revolve (keep your eyes on the radar for those sales). Scroll down for the direct link to my coat along with other current favorites.

Cheers ya'll!

The limit does not exist when it comes to coats. The Puffer trend is one of my top favorites this season - I'm loving the way this pop-of green meshes with the black.
