LEOPARD SNEAKERS + COAT

Happy 2017! This is officially my first post of the new year and I feel refreshed and energized for a fresh chapter. As I mentioned in #MyOdeto2016, last year was tough for me and full of lessons–but I’m eager and excited to see what this year holds. I’d love to hear what you want to see more of on my website. So, please leave me a comment below letting me know what posts you love and want more of!

I have been reaching for a ton of leopard as of late–and it doesn’t hurt that leopard is just about everywhere right now. Animal prints in all shapes and colors will be abundant in your feeds over the next few months, and I decided to load up on two pieces of leopard print. The jacket is from Mango and the leopard sneakers are from Stella McCartney, and together, they make the perfect leopard love child🐯. They look so much alike, they look like they’re from the same designer! I’ve played with multiple pieces of leopard print before here and here – but I think this look is my fave way to wear it. Leopard sneakers aren’t the most common piece, so below are my favorite picks for you to shop. What do you think? Let me know! read more

All Nude

My love affair with camel continues! And this time around, I’m doing the winter work version. What do you wear to an interview or meeting?  Now, just like you guys, I look to websites, pinterest, and other bloggers for fashion inspiration. I had a few big meetings and, I’m going to be honest, dressing for important meetings has never been my strong suit, especially given the fact that I work in such a creative field. So… I decided to do some research, and came across this Refinery 29 article that inspired the look above. I love to get re-inspired by things I already own… and I get even more excited when I can re-style pieces that I thought were on their way out of my closet. Example: this nude dress. read more

All Gray and Stripes

Alright, by now you guys know that I have a thing for all gray outfits. I mean take a look at this one (wearing the same coat I might add) and this menswear look. Ok, you get the picture, but I’m serious when I say that all-gray is my all-time favorite color to wear monochrome, and if you haven’t tried it out yet, I highly recommend it asap!

However, the challenge with wearing something like head-to-toe gray often, is making it unique and interesting. For this look, I wanted to play with proportions. I went with a super tight, long sleeve body con dress that hits right above my ankle. I really love this length because I think it’s more flattering then when skirts and dresses hit at the mid-calf. Mid-calf pieces are a surefire way to make my legs look way bigger then they are! Now,  I adore stripes and I wanted to make sure both the stripes on the arms and hem were fully exposed. So, I added on this ginormous gray coat. It’s eye-catching to wear something so tight underneath something so large, and I like how the lighter shade of the coat perfectly plays off of the dress. I kept the stripe theme going with my laid back Adidas and pulled the whole look and color scheme together with a structured, navy bag. read more

Veda Suede Dress

There is something so effortless  about a suede dress. It makes you feel cool (almost) instantly, and begs for another sartorial moment. In this case, I went for a white mock neck shirt and a great moto jacket. Usually, I have many words for my outfits, but this one came together almost seamlessly. I hope Santa treated you well, and if not, you should hit up the sales below on some of my favorite suede dresses right now! xx
