Lessons In Layering

Wear Me Out New York

Phillip Lim Tank

Zara Boots



What I'm Wearing: Jeans J Brand | Tank 3.1 Phillip Lim | Sweater Monrow | Boots Zara

With this ridiculously cold weather comes the need to bundle up. And what better way to stay warm than to pile on layers and layers of clothing. I'm talking layers of blouses, button-downs, sweaters, coats, hats, basically anything in your closet. Because it is seriously cold outside. I decided to wear this awesome sweater with an awesome quilted texture, and since I realized I hadn't worn plaid in a few days, I added a plaid tank underneath. And obviously in real life there would be a nice warm coat too, and probably some gloves, and a hat, and a scarf..

Pop Color

Helmut Lang Tank

Gold Jewelry

What I'm Wearing: Pants J Brand | Tank Helmut Lang, Similar | Blazer Dylan Alexa, Similar | Boots Zara

Sample sales are my new best friends. Granted, they are a little dangerous because you know you are getting such great deals so you pick up everything in sight. But when they pay-off, it's amazing. Like this Helmut Lang tank, originally $310, I got it for just $60. I'm in love with that little pop of bright orange color blocked into the shirt. It really pops among this monochrome outfit. And I layered a sheer blazer on top so that the color pops all the way through, giving a little surprise when I turn around. But, the most important part of this post is how adorable Bella is modeling in that first picture.

Beige Suede Shoes

Wear Me Out New York

Zara Sweater


Fall Fashion

Slip On Sneakers

What I'm Wearing: Jeans Hudson | Sweater Zara | Shoes Vince

In case I left you in suspense after my last encounter with a turtleneck (here), the answer is yes, I will be buying/wearing more turtlenecks. Turns out, I quite like them. Especially this one with the transparent stripes and its loose comfortable fit. The real star of the outfit, though has to be my blue, I mean, beige suede shoes. Besides the fact that they are beyond comfortable, they also look good with just about anything. Which is good because I plan on wearing them with just about everything. And yes, if you were wondering, I did sing Elvis the entire time I was taking these pictures.

Clothes For Thought | Now Trending

This is my first attempt at a digital version of a Clothes For Thought collage. And while it came out better than expected, I definitely prefer cutting pictures out of magazines and gluing them to paper. There's something about having the pictures in your hand that makes putting together a collage so fun. But, that's not to say I won't try photoshop again. Anyway, I made this collage as an ode to all the fall trends we love so much. Pretty pinks, perfect plaids, simple sweatshirts, lots of leopard, and anything cozy to keep warm. And yes, the quote was meant to be a bit ironic. 

Fashion icons are consistently telling us not to follow trends and to be ourselves but at the same time we look up to them for following and sometimes creating those very trends they don't want us to follow. My advice, don't count out trends. Never put something down because everyone's wearing it. If you love it wear it. I love being inspired by what others are wearing. I don't think of it as copying them, it's purely inspiration. Just take the trend and do it your own way. So, wear what you like and if you like these trends shop my picks similar to the clothing above:

A Whole New Look

Wear Me Out New York

Aritzia Sweater



What I'm Wearing: Pants Mother Denim | Shirt Soft Joie | Sweater Aritzia | Boots Vince Camuto, Similar

While I try to show you new clothing every time I post, it's just not possible. As much as I'd love a magical closet that held a never-ending supply of clothing, I don't have one. Which is why sometimes we have to take things from our closet and reinvent them. And one way to do this is by layering. Take this sweater (which is actually new, not good for my point but oh well), I can wear it as just an easy, cute black sweater, or add a collared shirt underneath (which isn't new, I wore it here). And every time you wear the sweater with a different collared shirt under it, you almost have a whole new look.

Perfectly Plaid

Wear Me Out New York

Mother Denim Leather Pants

Tory Burch Booties


What I'm Wearing: Pants Mother Denim | Shirt Rails | Boots Tory Burch

As you may already know, when I want something I don't stop searching until I find the perfect one. Like with my leather pants, or my moto boots, and this plaid shirt. You think it would be easy considering how much plaid I've amassed this fall, but then again I'm very picky. But with this shirt it was love at first sight, and feel. Seriously this is the comfiest shirt ever. In fact, I'm actually wearing it right now (which will be yesterday when this is posted). In the photos I wore the shirt with my leather pants to edge it up a bit. But in real life I'm wearing this shirt with leggings and I couldn't be happier, or comfier.

Little Blue Dress

Wear Me Out New York

Vince Camuto Shoes

Leopard Print



What I'm Wearing: Dress Aritzia | Shoes Vince Camuto, Similar | Sunglasses Gucci

There's something so perfect about the simplicity of a great dress. No layers (aside from maybe some tights and a coat), no hassle, just one simple article of clothing. I particularly love this shape, it just has such an easygoing feel to it. It's easy to wear and looks amazing. Besides the great color, I'm in for almost anything leopard this season.

Wanted | Flats

Fashion Blogger

This week what I am wanting is shoes, shoes, and more shoes. Whether it's a traditional flat, a smoking slipper, or a slip on sneaker, I want it. Not only are flats on trend, but they are always a great comfortable alternative to any shoe. I actually just bought the suede Vince slip-ons and I am in love, I cannot wait to wear them. But I'm also really loving all the printed versions available. Why not make a statement with your feet? Or add to a simple outfit with a pop of prints on your shoes. And I am totally eyeing the black pointed-toe Vince flats, too good. Shop these flats below:

Alright, so the story behind these pictures goes: Me in my outfit complete with my new 3.1 Phillip Lim tank (from the sample sale) and my leather jacket. Then in order to show off how awesome this tank is I took off the jacket. Then because it was freezing outside I threw my jacket over my shoulders in an effort to look cool and effortless. But I guess if you exert effort into being effortless then it completely defeats the purpose. Hmm.. Anyway, is anyone else extremely mad about how cold it is? I feel like we've barely even had fall. I just want to be able to wear my leather jacket a little bit longer. Please mother nature?

Teal Tendencies

AG Jeans

Kurt Geiger Flats



What I'm Wearing: Jeans AG Jeans | Shirt Aritzia | Shoes Kurt Geiger | Necklace Kate Spade

This shirt literally drew me in when I found it. I spotted it on a mannequin from across the store, and just from the amazing color I knew I had to have it. And then when I found the shirt it also fit nice which was an added bonus. But seriously the color is so good I might have bought it even if it didn't fit. To add a bit of interest I layered two necklaces, with a long one and then a short one peeking out from beneath the collar. As always, a good pair of jeans completes the look. This pair I think has become my favorite style, but I might change my mind tomorrow. All I know is any pair of AG Jeans is good, no matter the style. 

On a side note, why am I never looking at the camera? You'd think after 176 posts I'd figure this out..

Last week I went to a Phillip Lim sample sale and it was so good. Definitely a little chaotic, but really fun, and I walked away with three shirts. (All plaid, oops.) This tank is one of them, and I just love the washed out color of the plaid. Since it was on the longer side I knew I wanted to try it out with a skirt. I also wanted to add a cool sporty touch so I brought out my leather baseball jacket. Oh, and please excuse the giant rip in the side of my tights. You really shouldn't wear rings while putting on tights, nothing good can come of it.

Starry Night

Collare Shirt



What I'm Wearing: Jeans AG Jeans | Shirt Soft Joie | Boots Tory Burch | Sunglasses Ralph Lauren, Similar

So, here's my second venture into the world of pink. When I picked up this shirt while shopping my mom actually said to me, "I thought you don't like pink." And while normally I don't wear pink, I do make exceptions like with my big comfy pink sweater (here) or with this shirt above. Though it looks like it's a polka dotted shirt, it actually has tiny little stars and moons all over it, they are so cute. This shirt is so perfect worn by itself with some mid-rise jeans and booties, and I can't wait to layer it as well.
