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! :)

I see you baby girl

Thrifting is so wonderful in the Spring and Summer.

Short sleeve blouses, tanks, and shorts are cheaper than winter clothing and take up less space in your closet!

russianfur5I am not a big proponent of fur as you can probably guess. This coat is a very cool vintage piece. It was made locally in Kansas City.

russianfurEarrings – Name Brand Clothing $2.99

GN29aRYSZjASW8xc8zJ99fnrS6jG6M2No-MTIybYFRkIf you are wearing an extravagant piece like this fur coat, pair it with a simple pair of pants/skirt. Let it take the spotlight.

russianfur6If you do purchase fur, consider buying a vintage piece. This helps to reduce the amount of fur garments being created.

Mix ‘N’ Match 2/9/2015

04ie9FeTnnO55wvpPLMGBwpqnnNfsDPiHBekoWtVEzsThis is an extreme example, but mixing prints can be really fun! Make sure you stay within the same color scheme when mixing.

Blazer – Kulture on 39th $15.99, Hat – Urban Outfitters Sale $9.99

vfA1W59n8Y3lLy8BaiPo1Le5jNXqC3X2Oo28gpU2eFEWhatever you are wearing, wear it with confidence. You don’t need a permission slip.

FCyjvPbI02YZYdcm_wKBw6Tkyn54Gh3L-v1Sf9BFIeoIf you get nervous about mixing prints, break up the look with something solid.

i.e. If you’re mixing tops and bottoms, pair it with a  solid blazer to tone it down.

F-Y9upNllJ_QIdDl1KdaQ9-pzuTaGMVIDoIMDQHe5e0Distribute your prints evenly across your outfit. For example, your prints should be on top and bottom.

The more confined the print mixing, the busier it will look.

HakGcc-KFRfpX_AudDfrzjvAsMp-ciWfVYTipfRC33gFringe and suede are all over the spring runways. Mix black and brown together. It’s not a sin. Maddie and I do it well.

lLbTH3cyJTLhYpUcmvqxSyZLtl6fzwrM2H5kVIyOVgIAs I’m sure you know by now, I’m a big fan of layering…especially when the weather is finicky.

I always have an extra flannel with me. They look with almost everything.

5JBqRHsnlfUySyT6bZxMKOPf2OMe7e1K0iOr8revGP4Denim and flannel are staples in my closet. I wear them for 3 out of the 4 seasons. They are so easy to wear and look so effortlessly chic.

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.
