Right now, one of the hottest pieces this season is the leopard coat. You can’t scroll through Instagram, Pinterest, or a fashion site without seeing a look that includes a leopard coat. When I snagged this coat a few years ago at a local thrift shop, I couldn’t help but want to pair it with EVERYTHING. I threw this coat over a chambray top and a pair of dark wash denim, and let the coat bring the look up several notches. I slid on some backless mules, for a little menswear flair and kept it moving!
It may be a cold winter, but I’m heating it up with my style.

As you know, or have gathered by now, denim is my jam. I love how versatile it can be in terms of fit, wash, and the option of dressing it up or keeping it super casual. I’ve been wanting to add utilitarian denim jumpsuit to my wardrobe, but I could never find the right fit, style or price point. When I saw this jumpsuit, I pounced and ordered it right away – even though it was only available online, but the style and price were exactly what I wanted, so I took a risk in terms of fit. I wasn’t in love with it when I unwrapped it, but after a few mirror pics and pairing it with pieces in my closet, I fell in love. I loved the oversized fit and the comfort level was at 100.
I’ve worn it a million times and paired with everything from my Adidas sneakers to my Alexander Wang boots. This time, I went for a Spring friendly look, adding wedge sandals, a printed scarf and belt bag. This look is perfect for that girl on the go, and translate into a killer night out look, (just swap the belt bag for a clutch).
It’s all about that denim, baby.

Lately, I’ve been OBSESSED with raw/frayed hem denim. This trend has been popping up everywhere on bloggers and celebs for a few seasons now, and it’s a cool and easy update to your denim game. I snagged these culottes during a mini haul at Zara. Initially, I wasn’t sure if I was going to keep them, but a home fit sesh pairing them with a few of my tops and shoes made them keepers. They looked good with 90% of the pieces I paired them with, and we all know this is a rare occurrence.
The culottes have this boho, super casual look to them, but they have the ability to work with fitted and dressier pieces which gives them a really different vibe. Paired with a fitted striped crop and metallic heeled wedges make for an edgier look. I’m all about pieces you can rework during each wear.
I feel like I’m going to wear the hell out of these culottes this Spring/Summer. They might just be my new uniform.

Uggs are seriously one of the most comfortable shoes I have ever worn. I used to live in them back in high school until they became a fashion faux pas. However, I can confess that even when they were not the most fashion forward piece, I still wore them because they are so comfortable and warm. I love having a shoe that I can just slip on, no socks and go.
Now that Uggs are back in style and now the “cool girl” winter piece, I’ve added them back to my wardrobe. The key to incorporating Uggs into your warm weather look is to wear them with edgy, oversized or structured pieces and not the basic combos like flannels/leggings, screen tees/jeans and NEVER with a skirt.
I paired my boots with a long line bomber, oversized sweater and logo beanie. I’m really into grey color, because it’s just as neutral as the chestnut and has a softer look than the black.
Enter the cool-girl version of cozy chic.
