Ruffles for Valentines Day

Ruffles for Valentines Day

I’m so excited for Valentines Day because it’s another excuse to dress up wear tons of pink and red. Since date night is the route most people take for Valentines Day I used this as my inspiration for this outfit. For this outfit, I actually did something I’ve never done before, but I’ve seen been done. This top here is really…a dress. When I first saw this be done I thought I would never bring my self to do it. But here we are, when picking this outfit out I just couldn’t resist. All I did was tuck a short fitted dress into a skirt. Then I just paired it with a pair of black heels and there we go. I challenge you to try this to change things up a bit and its a great way to rewear dresses in a new way (we all know we have those dresses we only have worn once but can’t find a way to wear them). Also, of course, I couldn’t find this dress anywhere (I originally got it from Bloomingdales) but you can really do this with any dress, but I linked another dress any way that I thought would look just as good. Happy Valentine’s day!

Cozy Weekend lounging!

Cozy Weekend lounging!

For all those who live in cold climate’s, I feel your pain! This winter in Chicago has been super out of the ordinary, it’s either super cold or super warm. But on those cold days, you can bet I’ll be inside sitting next to the heater. I wanted to share one of my favorite outfits to wear on those cold weekends that you’re just running errand’s and sitting at home. I’m wearing a super cozy pullover sweatshirt, which has super cute pockets. The pockets are not like regular hoody pockets and they are only little squares but they add a lot to a plain white sweatshirt. This sweatshirt is by Kenneth Cole but for the life of me I can not find it anywhere online, so I linked similar tops below. My leggings are just plain cotton camo leggings from Aritzia. I love these, they’re so soft. Of course to finish any cozy outfit you have to have the socks, I linked my favorite pairs of socks below also.

Oversized Knits for Winter

Oversized Knits for Winter

I’m so excited to share this post because sweaters are my favorite thing in the whole world to wear in the winter! Living in Chicago its cold everywhere you go even inside is cold, so having a cozy sweater is the way to go. I personally love big oversized sweaters! One because they are so cute and flattering but two because they are so warm and you can layer them, so they’re practical too. Another love of mine during the winter is leggings, (like every girl my age) but I found when it comes to wearing leggings your outfit looks best if your shirt is longer/covers your but because leggings can cut your body into proportions differently then a pair of pants like jeans. Use this to your advantage when dressing! You can bring out some of your best features if you style yourself correctly. I prefer to dress to elongate my legs and I find longer tops helps when it comes to leggings. Here I wore a pair of faux leather leggings which I love because they are so edgy and cute. Then I wore this oversized sweater from H&M which I defiantly recommend, its so soft, cute and only $20! I pulled this all together with these super cute Steve Madden sneaker wedges. (all items linked below in caption). I defently suggest trying this style because you will never be cozier on a cold day!
