Five for Friday

October 22, 2021 in ,

 


Happy Friday! Woo Hoo!

So, I see that you guys really like when I show photos of myself like I did on Wednesday. I have taken note of that and will be incorporation more of that going forward (gulp). 

Today though, I have a round up of five new things things that I'm loving lately! 

These are all great and I'm very excited to share them with you!




This one here, I need to style myself and show you how I did it. To me, they stock photo here just isn't it. I wear this with a pair of faux leather leggings and my Golden Goose sneakers. It looks SO cute. Its a warm soft material and nice and cozy.





When I first picked these up, I thought that they were cashmere. They really feel like it. These are perfect for sitting on the couch, watching "Your shows" and drinking coffee or hot chocolate.







For awhile now, I've been trying to air-dry my hair. I've damaged it FAR too much with heat and bleach. Now, I'm trying to nurse it back to health. Each time I tried to air dry it though, well...it was a look. FLAT at the roots, but a frizz ball literally everywhere else.
This product is a game changer. It makes my air dried hair look as if it were actually styled that way. Its a total win.




This was an impulse buy. I do love it though. Its so cozy and looks lovely on.



Beanie

I live in New England. I'm going to need hats, many hats. There is no escaping winter here. Kyi-Kyi is one of the best hat brands that I've found. SO warm, and so well made.


Is there anything new that you are loving?  Please, do share and have a beautiful weekend!!

Neutrals or Bolds?

October 20, 2021 in

 




Hi friends, Happy Wednesday.
Sorry for the late start.. I was having technical difficulties. Blogger wasn't letting me upload photos. It might be time to start considering other platforms. But I digress.

I'm stepping a bit out of my comfort zone here today. I'm using photos of myself and my outfits here. I don't typically do this , as I'm sure you might of noticed. However, I figured it might be helpful to show you guys these things on a normal person in a normal setting (My bedroom and office bathroom).  Lets be real, anything will look great on a gorgeous 19 year old model on an exotic photo shoot.  If it will still look good on a 42 year old office worker, then its winner.  Its cringe inducing to me to write my stats here, but for reference I'm just shy of 5'4 and currently a ladies size 10.

Okay, that said.. lets start with the outfit above. More women that I know feel most comfortable dressing in neutrals. The question here is, "How do we keep neutrals from looking boring?"

What I did here was pair these neutrals with a very 'on point' pair of jeans. The sweater is a classic piece that will never look time period specific. Here are the links for each individual piece. (all "affordable" pieces)










So many women I know think that they can't wear bolds. They like them, they love how they look on everyone else, but are afraid to try them for themselves.
There are ways to overcome this hesitation.  My advice if you are looking to dip your toe into the waters of bold is to stick to classic shapes and outlines in the beginning.  You'll see here, that my red jeans are a classic straight cut and my top is a traditional button down. This gives the outfit a less avant gard than if I were waring more trendy shapes and styles such as flare legged pants.
Also, you'll see that I kept my accessories traditional here as well. Timeless bangle bracelets, hoop earrings and an iconic belt. When you are wearing bold colors, steer clear of the "statement piece" jewelry to avoid the appearance of "too much".   Here are the links for my "bold" outfit:





Are you comfortable wearing bold colors? Or do you prefer to stick to neutrals?

Ohhhhhhh in October

Happy Friday, Mes Amies!

How are you guys today? I'm so excited for the weekend. 

Here we are 1/2 way through October, I can't believe how quickly this fall is passing.

Anyhow, I added a few new pieces in to my wardrobe this month. I noticed from my blog graphic here that this is neutral city. Those are the colors of the season.






This sweater is the perfect neutral piece. I love how its the perfect way to keep my white jeans looking fresh into the winter.
Plus, its under $20.00





This shacket is the piece I never expect to love or wear so much! The "Shacket" is a hybrid of a shirt and jacket. Also, they are EVERYWHERE this season. I've used this to replace my puffer vests. 






This versatile piece can be worn alone, or over a t-shirt. The color works with everything.







I had to find a way to work some color in. The muted shades on this sweater are so in tune with  the prominent palette of the season.





Clog Bootie

The clog boot is the "IT" shoe of the season. I fell in love with a pair at Target, but my size had been sold out for months. When I saw this pair, I had to pounce. 



There you have it. Is there anything new that you are loving this month?


XO,
