Embrace the cape!

With the winter chill arriving in Minnesota quicker than I hoped, I needed a new way to stay warm and fashionable. I love my down feather Calvin Klein coat, however, it becomes quite monotonous when worn every single day. I wanted to switch it up occasionally- try a new trend other than a long black coat.

I have already seen several women on the street flaunting their flowing capes (or as some might call a poncho). Could this new fad be the piece of clothing to break up my chilly day boredom?

Pleather leggings- yes, you can wear them!

Typically I choose my outfit the night before, a routine I fell into during my first years of college to save a couple extra minutes of sleep the next morning. However, after an exciting, late night the last thing I wanted to do was search through my clothes while dreaming of my pillow.

Riffling through my closet early the next morning, I wasn’t clicking with any of my clothes. I felt extra edgy, what could I wear to represent that?

More studded shoes finding their way into my closet

I must admit two things about myself…

  1. I cannot pass up a good deal
  2. I am a shoe addict

Because of these character traits I acquired two more beautiful studded pairs of shoes for my ever-growing closet.

Mom, if you are reading this, before you roll your eyes at my money spending habits, the shoes were only $15 each! Thank you Charlotte Russe for the amazing sale prices that I stumble upon at dreadfully late hours of the night.

Birthday Treat For My Feet

Today is my birthday, so I decided to treat myself to a new pair of shoes. A group of friends and I are heading to a local winery, Four Daughters, for a relaxed evening of good laughs, mouth-watering food, and amazing wine. It was obvious that a new pair of shoes was necessary.

I have been mourning over the price of the Valentino ‘Rockstud’ Pumps for months, disappointed they would never be attached to my feet. However, after late night browsing online, I stumbled upon a pair of similar heels from LuLu‘s. Their price was perfect for a small budget like mine, and they looked practically identical! I ALMOST prefer the LuLu’s pair over the Valentino because of the heel height. The higher the heel the better, as I always say.

It’s warming up… slowly!

The forecast for the week calls for mid-50s, this is weather I can handle. The snow piles have disappeared, leaving behind giant puddles and grey slush; perfect rain boot weather. Nevertheless, my feet have been dying to slip into a pair of sky high heels and strut about the city. I can finally dust off my heels and embrace the crop top trend.

I have slowly started transitioning out of my winter wardrobe. This was one of my last dark, wintery outfits before I reintroduced pastels and neons.

Date night deserves a little bit of fabulous

I cannot rave enough about how fabulous I felt going on out for date night in this outfit. As much as I love to wear my sleek LBDs and stilettos, the weather was not permitting. The (faux) fur vest adds a bit of flair and warmth during the cold nights walking downtown, and the pleather pants keep everything exciting. Add the Coach wedges and statement necklace for perfect finishing touches.
