Look Book

Fashion and what I wear is one of the few things in my life that I strictly do for myself. Most people dress for others. I dress like no one is watching. My clothing picks directly affect how I feel and vice versa. Use this look book to inspire you. Get ideas, see what is in trend, how to put looks together, and where the good places to shop are if you are on a budget.  It will inspire your creative side while showing you a little slice of my life. Check back for weekly updates! :)

On a cool summer evening, pair your leather jacket with denim shorts.

Leather details are HUGE for. It looks fabulous on jacket, shirt, and pant trim.

Dress a leather skirt down with a fitted tee. If you’re not a skirt kinda gal, leather pants and leggings are just as stylish.

dragon5

Yay Maddie!! It’s skirt weather!

dragon2

It isn’t necessary to spend a small fortune on real leather pieces. There are a lot of faux leather garments that look just as fab as actual leather.

Save an animal and the cash in your wallet.

dragon8

If you’re not into high heels, booties always look great with a skirt.

dragon9

Add a pop of color with a patterned scarf.

dragon4

So that the leather trimmed jacket is the main focus, pair it with a simple tee.

Fall Ponchos 10/29/13

nponcho7

I will always love ponchos and capes. Lucky for me, they are very in style this fall.

There is something so cozy about curling up in oversized clothing with a giant cup of coffee. Don’t you think?

Poncho (Jessica Simpson) – Ross $29.99, Denim (as seen before) $29.99, Stocking Cap (as seen before)

Red Racks $.99, Leather bag (BCBG) Originally $300, purchased for $9.99 at Name Brand Clothing

poncho5

This leather bag I scored was missing the strap. I used a long scarf with a pattern that I loved to replace it.

poncho3

You’re so funny Maddie.

I love the color orange. It makes me happy. It’s such a warm color even when it’s chilly out.

Maddie gave up about half way through our day

I snagged the jewelry at Red Racks.  My necklace and bangle were $1 a piece.

As the warm days become few and far between, Maddie and I make sure to take advantage of the sun.

so park 6 Red J Crew Blazer – Free at a clothing swap, Plaid button down – Urban Outfitters (old), Denim -Pacific Sunwear $29.99, Boots – ALDO online sale

so park1jpgA bright colorful blazer can be an easy substitute for black or gray. Don’t be afraid of the color.

so park4If you aren’t a super preppy gal (which I am not), pair the look with some grungy boots to bring down the prep-o-meter

so park3I found this gem at a garage sale for $.50

so park5

I could write a book on how versatile a blazer is. You can dress any look up or down with this must have piece.

You don’t have to go blazer crazy and have them in every color like yours truly, but it’s a definite staple that should be in your closet.

so park7This $9.99 leopard investment was worth it! I wear my Kohl’s watch all the time!

so parkI love plaid! This print can go from preppy to grunge. It can be used for any type of look depending on how to accessorize it.
