Leopards, Aviators & Cargos

Sunnies: Downtown Threads, Blazer: Goodwill, Sweater: Forever 21, Cargos: Levi’s, Boots: MIA via 6pm, Ring: Florence, ItalyWhen I bought these boots I couldn’t wait to wear them but when they arrived I struggled with how to style them. I waited and waited but the perfect event to debut these beauties never came. Finally I just got over it all and wore them to the grocery store (my favorite testing ground for outfits) and it’s been love ever since.

The classic shape and faded leopard print make transitioning these boots from day to night a snap. I wanted the boots to really pop so I paired them with a twist on a classic trouser and blazer look.

Sometimes you have to wear a piece before you can figure it out.

What pieces in your wardrobe are you still trying to figure out?

Perfect for Strip Poker

Blazer: Goodwill Kids, Necklace: Antique Store, Faux Fur Vest: Gifted, Belt: F21, Button up: Walmart, Tank & Flower Ring: Charlotte Ruse, Jeans: Levi’s, Boots: MIA (via 6pm)I don’t know if I’m doing my pageant smile because my friend Erin is behind the camera or because my face is frozen. The winter cold seem to come overnight and doesn’t it just figure that the first real snow storm would happen on the busiest travel day of the year. (I snapped these photos a few days ago as the snow this morning made outfit shots rather tricky.)

I wasn’t ready to break out my winter coat yet so I decided to layer some of my favorite pieces instead. When I layer I plan on wearing everything together but try to consciously use pieces that are easy to mix and match and can be worn individually. That way if you end up with tofutti smeared on your navy blue blazer or find yourself in an intense strip poker game, you wont miss a step.

Now… the boots. They were one of my last completely self indulgent purchases when I was working two jobs. The heel is the perfect height and I feel so Nancy Sinatra when I wear them. While this is the first time these boots has been blogged I have a sneaking suspicion that you’ll be seeing a lot more of them, specifically paired with my skinny cargos… stay tuned.

Safe travels & happy holidays all!

Fall Fabrics

Suglasses: Zinnia, Camel Blazer: Vintage (from mom), Sweater: Gifted, Belt: Goodwill, Skirt: Downtown Threads, Boots: Florence, Italy I did a triple take of the temperature this morning when I woke up… a whole 42 degrees. Fall is here folks and I couldn’t be happier. I excitedly tore apart the house unpacked my fall clothes and did a happy dance when I came across this plaid wool maxi skirt. I bought it last year when Downtown Threads was having an end of winter sale and packed it away before I got a chance to wear it.

I live in maxi skirts and dresses all summer and I’m excited to have one that I can transition into cooler weather. Even though it was in the 40s when I woke up I knew it was eventually suppose to reach the mid 60’s so I layered a tee under my sweater and finished the look with the camel blazer my mom passed down to me.

I like that this look is a little bit English countryside and a lot bit 70’s, all I’m missing is an off white beret and flipped out ends. This look is entirely practical and over the top comfortable, exactly the mix I’m looking for this time of year.

Have you switched from summer staples to fall fashions yet? What pieces do you rely on during this seasonal transition?

Got my Party Hat and Pumps on!

My new accessory obsession? Hats!

Oh yes, that’s snow your seeing. This morning Burlington woke up to dusting of new snow… that’s right even though yesterday’s temperatures reached into the 40s and tomorrow is the first day of spring Vermont is still enjoying fresh powder.

Last time I checked it wasn’t suppose to snow in spring!

As  mentioned in my Friday Finery & Frivolities post this week was so stressful, last night I was dead asleep before 9:30pm! Poor D went to take a shower and by the time he got out I passed out. He said he just rolled me over and kept watching basketball, so I suppose it worked out for the best.

I love the feather and bow detailing!

I just started getting into hats and now I can’t imagine living without them! I usually rock a simple knit winter hat so it’s been fun expermenting with different styles. This spring a 70’s style wide floppy hat will go perfectly with everything from a maxi dress to high waisted jeans. I can’t wait for the warmer weather to return so I can bust on my straw fedora!

This hat just has such a great 70’s vibe to it, I love it! Accessories like this hat are the  perfect way to inject a little drama into any outfit.  You can dress it up like I did above or pair it with your favorite pair of skinnies, classic riding boots, and an over sized tee for a more casual chic look.

Don’t you step on my Blue suede shoes

Tonight D and I are going to a double birthday party, our friends (who happen to be brothers) are throwing a joint birthday party for their girlfriends! I’m looking forward to partying with good friends and lots of dancing; it’s the perfect way to celebrate the weekend and a great excuse to get a little dolled up!

I got this blazer for a fraction of the retail price, thank you to whoever returned this blazer after taking off the tags! You can’t really see it in the pictures but the blazer has a sparkly sheen to it and the lapels are done in a gauzy fabric adding great texture. It’s quickly become my go to piece for a night out. I love how adding a blazer and bold heels takes a casual outfit (skinny’s and a tee) from day to night seamlessly. Finish off the look with a fun hat or a bold clutch and you’re ready to party all night!

Could tonight’s “Super Moon” be getting to me already?

Super Moon? Tonight’s moon will be the biggest full moon in 20 years! I hope the clouds don’t get in the way! Burlington always gets a little wacky when there’s a full moon so I’m interested to see what happens tonight!

What are you doing this weekend? Where are you planning on viewing the “Super Moon”?
