Comfy & Oversized Pieces

Outfit Details 

Cardigan: Nordstrom Rack (similar style) / Shirt: Target / Leggings: Zara (similar)
Bag: H&M (similar)

As the weather cools down, I just want to layer up in the most comfortable clothes.  Regardless of the fact that I am only 4’11, I still love oversized pieces, especially during the fall and winter seasons.  I’ve been searching for more sweaters & cardigans to add to my wardrobe, so I was very happy to find this one at Nordstrom Rack.  They have a huge selection of long cardigans right now, but this one was definitely my favorite.  No lie, I want to sleep in it.  I decided to pair this with a chunky plaid scarf and even though it’s the same color palette as the cardigan, I love the way it makes the outfit pop out.  Plaid scarves are a huge trend right now and I love it.   They’re a great way to add a pop of print or even do some print mixing this season.  For some extra comfort with this look, I paired these pieces with my black leggings, a long white tee and booties.  

Happy Weekend <3

Be Radiant + Demi Lovato Giveaway

Outfit Details

Jacket: Elie Tahari x Kohls / Top: NY&CO / Skirt: Girls On Film (love this)
Booties: Target (similar) / Hat: H&M (similar) / Bag: French Connection (similar)

Confidence is something that I have honestly had to work at over the years.  I used to be really insecure about many things and I had to learn to let that go.  As I’ve gotten older, I have learned to embrace my flaws.  I now feel much more comfortable in my own skin.  When it comes to fashion, it’s important to be confident with the things that you wear.  Clothes are just our outer layer, so make sure to let your inner confidence and personality shine through! That’s why I’m so excited about today’s post.  The Radiant Collection from Tampax and Always partnered up with Demi Lovato for her World Tour to encourage girls to have the confidence to wear what they want at all times of the month.  In honor of this, I am sharing an outfit that makes me feel both radiant and confident.  And guess what?  One reader will receive 2 tickets to the Demi Lovato concert at the Barclays Center this month!  First, let’s get into the outfit details and then, more info on the giveaway. 

 I know that some girls shy away from wearing prints, but it’s honestly one of the things that make me feel the most fearless and bold.  I don’t really know how to explain it, but whenever I wear a printed piece I’m just ready to take on the day.  I decided to base my look around this fun printed neon skirt.  You might remember the matching bomber jacket that I wore not too long ago.  I’ve done so many matching sets so I wanted to wear each piece as a separate this time.  I paired the skirt with a white top and black moto jacket to create a nice mix of chic and edgy.   Instead of heels, I went with booties and the final touch was my favorite wide brim hat and a pink lip.  Over the last 3 years of blogging, I’ve learned to wear an outfit and own it, whether it’s something bold or something as simple as a pair of jeans and a t-shirt.  It’s not so much about what you are wearing but how you are wearing it.  If you like it and you are comfortable in it, then that is all that matters.  You are beautiful.  Work it girl!

Now on to the amazing giveaway!  One reader will receive TWO tickets to the Demi Lovato concert on 10/27 at 7pm at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn, NY.  To enter, simply leave a comment on this post and tell me what you wear to feel the most confident.  Also, please provide your email address too so that I contact you if you win! I will be choosing the winner the morning of 10/25 so that you can pick up your tickets at will call the day of the concert.  Good luck loves!

Blogger Style Session

Outfit Details 

Blazer: Target / Shirt: Target (similar) / Jeans: Target 
Shoes: Enzo Angiolini / Bag: olivia + joy (also love) / Sunglasses: Tommy Hilfiger 

It’s no surprise that we all get style inspiration from other people.  I absolutely love street style and seeing the creative ways that others put their looks together.  It challenges me to step outside of my comfort zone and try new things.  For today’s post, Target teamed me up with Elizabeth, from A Keene Sense Of Style, for a fun little blogger styling session.  Elizabeth has great style and I’ve always loved the way that she pieces everything together, so it was awesome working with her on this! 

My style is very simple & chic with an edgy twist and Elizabeth’s is very polished and feminine.  She kept both of our styles in mind when putting together this outfit for me.   She picked out this plaid blazer and paired it with a navy button down, which I absolutely love.  Plaid is a big print trend for the fall season and definitely one of my favorites.   I left the top buttons undone to give it a relaxed vibe.  Since this combo can be seen as “preppy,” she wanted to juxtapose that by pairing it with slightly distressed jeans.   We then added in pointy toe pumps to elongate my legs and the perfect tan crossbody bag to complete the look.   I’m really happy with the way this all turned out and although our styles are different, there are also some similarities as well.

Have you ever let someone else style you?  You should definitely try it out!
