Winterizing my Leather Skirt! {long fur vest & otk boots)

Skirt: h&m// Turtleneck: gap //OTK Boots: forever21 (similar)//Vest: h&m (similar)//Hat: thrifted (similar)

Some pieces I just can't put away until next season and this skirt is one of them.   Luckily, it is faux leather which is a great transitional material from season to season.  My favorite trick with wearing a skirt in the winter is pairing it with OTK boots to keep a good amount of your legs covered and warm!   Not saying wearing a pair of tights is a bad idea but switching it up every once in a while is a great way to break up the routine.  Also layering up on tops, vests, coats and wearing a hat will finish off your winterized look!  And don't forget your sunnies... that winter sun is no joke!


New Tweed Coat & Quilted Sneakers

Sunnies: target//Clutch: old navy//Sneakers: target

H&M has been having amazing sales lately!  Fortunately, I work right next store to one and a necessary walk through has become an end of my work day routine.  I have been watching this particular coat for a little while now and cringing at the $60 price tag.  Well, thanks to my routine... I went in the other day to check out the hat selection and this beauty had been moved to the clearance rack!! A dramatic 50% price decrease, now only $30!  I immediately bought it and couldn't be happier with it!

A Black Cape & Some Denim

Happy Monday Everyone!!  I still can't believe we are in December... but what are we going to do about it?  We are going to put up our little tree, hide a few of the Hub's gifts in the closet (Genius spot, I know) and we are going to twirl in our fabulous capes in random fields...Yes, that sounds like the perfect plan to start this Month.  How are y'all planning your last month of 2014?!


Grid on Grid is What we Do

Jacket: hm (similar)//Pants: hm (similar)//Blouse: forever21//Beanie: forever21//
Clutch: old navy (similar)//Heels: thrifted// Sunnies: target

I'm obsessed with grid patterns lately, but who isn't this season.  I think my next purchase featuring it might have to be a mohair sweater.  Any suggestions on where to find a reasonably priced one?  And of course, when I acquire said sweater I will layer it over this exact outfit.  Because when you have a ton of grid pieces you must wear them all at once!

Summer Dresses for Fall

Dress: Patterns & Pops//Sweater: forever21//Fur Collar: thrifted// Heels: dsw//Sunnies: target

It wasn't too long ago that I showcased this dress in a totally different way (here)!  So today, I went a little more casual by layering a sweater, fur collar and crossbody purse to complete the look.  I love simple layering like this because I am not a big fan of putting clothes away for the seasons.  I would much rather wear/style them in different ways to keep them out all year around.  This look is one of many examples of how to keep those summer dresses in use for the fall season.  What is you favorite way to transition looks into the Fall?
