In my opinion, January is the peak time for winter-wear. It’s post-holiday, the weather is generally gloomy, and you’re just looking for jeans and cozy sweaters in order to bundle up. Well, bundle up is what I did as soon as I discovered this super soft, semi-slouchy sweater from Rag & Bone. One of my favorite brands for casual wear- Rag & Bone always gets it right.
I accentuated the horizontal stripes at the bottom of the sweater with, you guessed it…more stripes! These Topshop jeans (currently on sale) have a vertical stripe down the side that’s both sporty and flattering!
Well, while Winter might be upon us, I recently had a break from the cold when I went home to Florida for the week. I ditched my turtlenecks and leather coat for breezy dresses and light sweaters that could be layered on when the sun went down.
During that time, I wore one of my new favorite pieces that I can’t wait to wear all through 2019. This sunny, maxi dress has the flirtiest ruffles, pretty chiffon straps (perfect for bows) and a color to turn heads. I find it reminiscent of Beyoncé’s iconic look from her Lemonade album. To make it a look worthy of Queen B, I paired the dress with my new Aquazzura heels. You might have seen these arrive if you follow along with my Instagram stories (I hope you do!).
While the shoes are pretty pricey, I got them as a steal on The Real Real. My friends have officially gotten me addicted to bargain shopping for designer duds on the site. And these shoes were my first find! You know what they say. When life gives you lemons….
Well, I think it’s safe to say that I’ve found my color of the summer. Every year, I unintentionally end up gravitating towards the same shade of “flame” red! I actually didn’t realize it until I sat down to write this post. You might remember this look from a couple years ago, or even this recent all-red jumpsuit look!
I find the color youthful and a breath of fresh air to welcome the heat of summertime.
I fell in love with this dress while perusing the sale rack of my local Dillards! Can you believe that I only paid $27? For my spicy look, I paired my dress with layered gold necklaces, and the same shade of red heels. I feel like a real-life salsa lady emoji! Unfortunately, my particular dress is sold out – but here are some other red-hot picks to get you ready for Summer (my favorite is only $52)!
