COLD WINTER, HOT…PINK

Details: J. Crew Tissue Turtleneck T-Shirt, here | Madewell High- Rise Skinny Jeans in Black Sea, here | Sam Edelman Black Block Heels, similar here

As you probably know by now, I tend to gravitate to neutrals i.e. taupes, brown, beige, ivory etc., especially during the fall and winter months. However, I’ve realized that adding some color to your wardrobe opens the door to new outfit possibilities. I don’t know if it’s just me, but have you noticed the increase in hot pink clothing in your favorite stores lately? I’ve never been a pink person, I mean I love the neutral pinks, but I’ve never gravitated to hot pink clothing. This season, it’s everywhere and I am seriously loving it. I don’t believe I’ll ever go as far as Kameron on Real Housewives of Dallas with her pink sparkle dog food, but I already have several hot pink pieces in my closet, including this ultra comfy and lightweight hot pink turtleneck from J. Crew. The material is very thin and lightweight which is a nice change to my usual chunky knits. And instead of slipping on my usual booties, I decided to bare some foot skin and slid on my favorite pair of black block heels. They are SO comfortable and go with just about everything, including something as casual as these distressed pair of denim. 

In terms of what’s going on in my life, I just returned from a work trip to London, and you know all those movies like Love Actually, The Holiday and Peter Rabbit? Yea. It’s exactly like that. I don’t know that there’s anything better than exploring a new city in a different country, no less. More on that later. Stay tuned!

COAT SZN, FTW

Details: SheIn Houndstooth Coat, similar here | Aerie Real Soft Ribbed Turtleneck, here| Dadawen via Amazon, Platform Lace-Up Oxfords, here 

It’s officially coat season and if you ask Josh, he would tell you that I’m the coat queen. I do have way too many coats and Josh always insists I start purging some,  but what if I need a hot pink semi-warm coat to get me through the fall and winter season!? Here in Boston, there really is such a short window of opportunity to wear them since they’re not exactly the warmest. This houndstooth coat is one of my favorites, but it’s more of a “fashion” coat, almost like a blazer. I feel like I could maybe wear this coat as an actual coat during the last week of September and maybe two to three weeks in October lol. Right now, we’re experiencing super cold mornings and chilly evenings, so as much as I would love to look like a fashionista sporting my stylish coats I like to be warm more. You will see me in my puffer coat with both buttons buttoned at the top, looking like a caterpillar in a cocoon. It’s not fashion, but it is toasty. My other favorite fall/winter must-have are these Aerie turtlenecks. I’ve always been a huge fan of the turtleneck, and this season Aerie has introduced these ribbed form-fitting turtleneck tops in (almost) every color you can imagine. I have them in this popping Holiday Red color, a kelly green, white and a rich wine/burgundy color. I LOVE them. They are the perfect layering piece and, who are we kidding, a turtleneck says sophistication, just ask Ron Burgundy. As for shoes, I’m all about comfort. Surprise, surprise, right? I hate to rip off designer styles and brands, but the one shoe style I’ve always loved are the Stella McCartney platform wingtip lace-up loafers. Like any millennial with no money, I went to Amazon and found these perfect imitations. These are so comfortable and they look awesome, IMO. So until the snow is falling, I’ll be rocking these and hopefully some cuter coats…if Mother Nature will allow.

MORE COMFORT, LESS MONDAY

Details: Neutral color-block cardigan (old), similar here, here and here | UNIQLO jogger pants, here |

Mondays are THE worst, especially now that it’s getting colder. Although my work dress code is super casual, I always feel like when I dress up for work, I feel better and more productive. Super weird, I know. So in an effort to kick off the work week, I pulled out this somewhat monochromatic look. Neutrals are my favorite so it shouldn’t be surprising that this neutral color-block cardigan has made it to my wardrobe from last season. Yep! That’s right. It escaped my closet purge, and for good reason. It is super comfortable and it goes with EVERYTHING. With the goal of comfort on my mind, I slipped on another last season favorite, my UNIQLO joggers. These light beige joggers aren’t just for summer but work just as well in the fall and winter months. This entire look depends on the shoes. If you glide on a backless loafer, it will look super casual and sweet, but as soon as you slip on a pump, you’ve upped your outfit game. These Ann Taylor neutral pumps are also unbelievably comfortable and I also purchased them, you guessed it, LAST SEASON. Well, if there’s one thing I get right on a Monday, it’s this outfit. Now let’s go kick some ass!
