Cold Weather Chic :: Velvet Pants for the Desk to Dinner

I hardly ever wear pants to work, but these navy velvet pants are making me rethink that. It’s no surprise velvet is still living out its moment. I love the lean silhouette of how these velvet pants are cut. There are off-seam pockets, which is a must-have for me. Plus, the way the pants are tailored looks and feels custom. I appreciate the contoured waistband, which helps with fit. I’m wearing a size 00 Petite and it actually runs just a dash big on me. Hence, my belt, which is also big for me, ha! There’s a little bit of smoke and mirrors going on here. Don’t worry, I plan on getting the belt fixed! I’m clearly having some petite girl struggles. While I’d normally consider an alternation job, I’m going to leave these pants alone since they aren’t that big on me. Read more…

Holiday Ready :: Tartan Vest & Striped Turtleneck

I’m a sucker for festive holiday attire and this tartan vest is no exception! This is the perfect Christmas plaid with hints of green, gold and blue on top of the sea of red. Plus, the navy blue velvet trim really makes this vest pop. What I love about this vest is it’s easy to throw over anything, yet thin enough you can wear it under coats. Whether you pair this with a striped turtleneck like I am here or over a cozy cashmere sweater, you’re sure to look chic. One aspect I love about vests is how warm they truly can be. Keeping your chest and vital organs warm, will keep you warm. This tartan vest is slim and lightweight, but truly really warm with its polyfill. I opt for just this tartan vest over a light sweater if temperatures are going to be warmer than 40 degrees… Read more…

Holiday Casual :: Boucle Wool Coat & Flannel Pajama Top

I’m so sad Coastal Virginia didn’t get enough snow to stick over the weekend! I’m crossing my fingers we get a real snow day before Christmas here. I love snow and being in a winter wonderland. Speaking of winter, I add a new pair, or a few, of holiday pajamas to my collection each year. With a super demanding job during the week, on weekends, I love to lounge when it’s gray or gross outside. These flannel pajamas are major sale right now and you can see the full look on my Instagram. The flannel pajama top is so comfy, I’m styling it for “the real world.” The pajama trend really took off earlier this year so I’m continuing it into winter. I believe if you style the top right, whether it’s with tying the bottom or pairing it with the right bottoms, you can get a super chic look… Read more…

Evergreen Style :: Saltwater Duck Boots for Cold Weater

Hello Everyone! I cannot believe in Coastal Virginia we have a 60 percent chance of snow today! I love being able to get a little white magic every winter but am thankful heavy blizzards are mostly behind me. I remember being in Nebraska in what felt like -25 and plenty of snow. There is nothing I hate more than cold wet feet. I feel like it’s the fastest way to be cold all over and is an instant mood dampener. Over the years, I’ve worn numerous boots. However, these Sperry saltwater duck boots are some of my favorites. These are adaptable, so no matter where you go from rugged landscapes to snow mountains you will stay comfortable. One of my favorite aspects of these saltwater duck boots is the rubber sole, which provides traction on wet or dry surfaces. Trust me, there slipping and falling isn’t fun. Read more…
