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.

Oversized sweaters and coats are all the craze this fall. It’s a very easy and comfortable trend. Pair fitted pants/skirt with your oversized sweater or coat to give yourself a figure.

Don’t be afraid to wear colored shoes. They go with just as many things as black and brown. They are great for a pop of color.

I have a weakness for House of Harlow.

If it’s oversized and sparkles, chances are Maddie and I love it.

Leather is in again this fall which is A-ok with me! Graphic Tees have taken over the planet. Wear them into fall by layering them with a blazer, chambray, or flannel.

Bored of the same ‘ol nail colors? Jazz up those talons with a triangle or shape of your choice. It takes your nails from pretty to a work of art.

Windy, but beautiful day on the Plaza

Try making your maxi dress a complete look. Tie it all together with a short fitted jacket and accessories.

leeandme4

If you have a curvier body type, try a solid color maxi instead of horizontal stripes. They tend to exaggerate curves and width.

leeandme5

If you are sick of always pairing sandals with your dresses, try a cowboy boot. It’s a nice change of pace.

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

Leather trimmed jacket – Target $39.99, Faux leather pleated skirt – Target clearance $17.99, Suede booties $29.99

dragon7

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.
