This Fall has just turned SERIOUSLY cold. How to dress warmly and still look cute is a topic near and dear to me since I live in Boston where it's hella cold. And I hate being cold! So what's the secret to cold weather style? To me, the trick to stylish winter dressing boils down to wearing thin layers that are warm. I find that having a good selection of the right layers at hand is super important. So I'm sharing my cold weather dressing process and a few pieces that have been invaluable in my quest to stay warm and still look somewhat cute when it's freezing out!

HOLIDAY OUTFITS PART 2

If you're looking for a last minute Thanksgiving (or other holiday) outfit, I've found the perfect dress under $40 - however it's selling out super fast so hurry if you like it. This deep blue color is so flattering and I love the soft feminine style of the dress. It also comes in a very pretty pink. It's cut like a tunic so styling it with a glittery belt is a great way to create the shape you want and also add some holiday sparkle. Also really love this gorgeous new arrival floral red dress.

5 FALL BASICS YOU NEED

Tuesday, November 7, 2017

denim, slouchy knit, fall style, petite fashion, gold hoops, hollow hoops, fall sweaters, pleated midi, casual basics

Yes, even I, the queen of color and prints, wear neutrals! And jeans!

I hadn't planned to post today and only have a couple of pictures of this outfit - only candids. But I wanted to share a few of my recent finds because they're all such good DEALS and because they're pieces every Autumn/Winter wardrobe needs no matter what your style. They're also all under $100 so they're super budget-friendly. Too good not to share even though I don't have images for all of them.

THAT HOLIDAY MOOD: HOLIDAY OUTFITS PART 1

 Holiday Outfits 2017

SWEATER | SKIRT | BOOTS (sold out) similar HERE | HAT

I don't know if it's just me but the minute we hit November I start getting into the holiday mood. Wearing red is one easy way to get festive without putting in a lot of effort. And what I love about red pieces is that they're not relegated to the holiday season - as you can see in this post. All my red pieces here can be styled differently to be worn anytime. This floral pleated skirt is an easy piece to wear to work, just around or to a holiday party depending on how you style it. The flowers are so vibrant and the black background of the print makes it super easy to wear. I picked up this chunky sweater yesterday for only $20 that has a really cool drape and would go perfectly with this skirt since it's a slightly cropped length.

Fall Layers

I take a great deal of joy in the art of layering. I layer purely for layering itself. Sometimes I even layer too much and get annoyed that the layers didn't fall just right. But that may be a story for another time. Today's post highlights some simple layering techniques that can make late Fall and Winter more tolerable if you're a cold weather wimp like me.

Wide Leg Pants

I wanted to share my latest fashion addiction with you - wide leg pants! As you know, I don't wear pants and jeans all that often. The skinny variety aren't that flattering on me and even boyfriend styles can be tricky for me. Luckily, wide leg pants are a completely different story. They're SO flattering. Plus this is a fashion trend that is actually super wearable for everyday, and for ALL body types. In today's post I'm sharing 4 reasons to buy a pair of wide leg pants asap if you don't already own some. PS: For those interested in fast forwarding to outfit links, just scroll down all the way to the bottom and see "Outfit Details" -  I won't be offended!

Staycation Fall Fashion

Happy Monday! My weekend was wonderful because we had a little staycation, courtesy of the Element Hotel in Boston's Seaport. It was perfect timing since I really needed a couple of days to relax. The hotel is modern, eco-conscious and great for families. If you follow me on Twitter you probably got a peek at the room and saw how sleek and functional it is. My daughter spent the majority of our time there in the heated indoor pool while I zoned out with a magazine, and by magazine I mean Instagram. Outfit details and more on our stay are below!

A couple of mysterious white specks somehow landed on this ruffle-sleeve sweater when I wore it. Note to self, always carry a mini lint roller.

And it's under $35 so it's super budget friendly. It comes in white as well and will be a frequently used item in my closet for the Fall.
