This is one of my “it’s still winter, but I can’t wait until spring” outfits. The outfit is actually warmer than it looks, minus the open back. That’s nothing a cardigan can’t fix! I actually wore a midi skirt underneath and cardigan with this floral knit tunic (dress) to work yesterday and it hit me just right. That’s a great way to make this dress work if it’s a bit too short for your taste. I wore this one in the berry color. It matches the color in the dress perfectly! These midi skirts are super stretchy and comfortable. I promise you I have them in at least 10 colors now. They’re just really inexpensive and easy to wear! The outfit itself would actually make a cute, non-traditional Valentine’s Day date idea. I actually plan on wearing a non red or pink outfit. I may incorporate one of the 2 somewhere; we’ll see! Last year, I did rose gold. I’ll be sure to share it here later, whatever I decide!

Trending: The Skinny Scarf

I promised more of these dedicated trend posts, so here’s another one and I am quite excited to show you! Cue the skinny scarf! The skinny scarf is everywhere. On the streets, on runways, on my favorite blogs. It’s all the way up my alley! They can quickly throw in a masculine edge to an outfit, or likewise dress down an otherwise too dressy outfit. In other words, I love them! I cannot believe it’s taken me so long to score one. No worries though; I’ll be grabbing 1 or 2 of these babies very soon!

Here are some of my favorite outfit posts from other bloggers styling the skinny scarf (all photos are clickable):

Dani from Mermaid Waves

Besides being a genius way to style a skinny scarf, this outfit from Dani gives the idea of how I can make my shirt dresses work for cold weather without wearing tights underneath.

Louise Xin

I don’t currently own a fur vest, but this outfit from Louise Xin makes me want one. It’s an effortless mix of feminine and masculine, which is what I live for.

Brittany from Thrifts & Threads

Brittany has quickly become one of my top fashion bloggers. Not only is her style on point, but she also offers tips to help other bloggers prosper. Very few bloggers are this unselfish. I can’t wait to try this outfit on myself!

Sydne from Sydne Style

Can you say date night? The skinny jeans, clutch and single sole heels that Sydne selected brings up the classy vibe and the blazer tones it down the slightest notch.

Katarina from Katiquette

Katarina gave me an idea for another look I may try soon. The best thing about this outfit is that I already have each item worn in my closet!

Erica from Fashioned Chic

Erica shares another look that features pieces easily accessible to me. I can see this outfit looking equally just as awesome with loafers or Chelsea boots. So many possibilities!

The minute I score one of the skinny scarves featured above, you can expect a personal styling post! Also, any ideas for future trend posts are welcome. Talk soon beauties 😉

Here we are again, back to camel as I promised in this other post where I styled an oversized camel blouse. I just feel like this is a neutral that flatters so many skintones. You also don’t have to limit it to any particular season; that’s how versatile it is! And who doesn’t like a versatile piece in their wardrobe, right? I know I do! One season that this camel knit sweater dress will definitely not work down here is in the summer. Summer is miserable here at times with the humidity, heat and everything else. At least I have 2 other seasons that I can enjoy it! I wish it came in more colors. Red would be stunning for Valentine’s Day that’s coming up sooner than I want it to…ahhhh! On a serious note though, you want this dress. Trust me on that. You already know how I feel about the boots. This is like my 50th 3rd time styling them, right? Oh ya know, just another versatile addition to your closet 😉

MAC Tutorial: Parfait Amour, Nocturnelle, Bitter and Sea & Sky

I’ve mentioned before that purples aren’t my favorite when it comes to eye shadows. However, I am all for stepping outside of my comfort zone and wearing it anyway. I actually really like this look. Though it has purples, I sneaked the look into my favorites by adding 2 of my favorite eye shadow colors, blue and green. This is a simple way to get away with wearing a color you wouldn’t normally wear. I mean, this is a technique I trick my clients with all the time lol. They firmly tell me what they don’t want, and occasionally I’ll listen, but most of the time, they end up changing their minds or they end up not noticing it’s there. Hence the phrase: “the customer is not always right!”

Okay, so there are 2 things I dislike about this look: 1) it’s a bit too feminine for my taste and 2) the quality of the dress is awful. I feel like this is a dress I would give my future daughter to play dress up in. I wouldn’t be seen in this outside of the house (aside from doing this photo shoot). It’s quite disappointing. I saw it on the model and fell in love with it. I got it in the mail and it made my stomach do flips. It’s atrocious. No disrespect to the company who made it whatsoever, but it could have definitely been more appealing as it was on the display model. 1 thing I do like is the colors in the fabric. I just wish the fabric was better. Other than that, this is one of those posts that makes me look forward to spring because of the vibrant colors and warmer weather. I would say I can’t wait, but it’s here sooner than I thought and sooner than our beloved groundhog predicted :/

TUTORIAL: Winterberry

This winter inspired look would be the exact look I wore and filmed on Christmas Day, 2014. The look is over a year old, but the makeup itself would work beautifully on any particular day. It’s very wearable and makes an awesome bridal look! I have been posting number of these lately since I often get questions from brides on makeup ideas and I find they nearly always show me a face of the day that I have done to replicate on them for their big day. I used mostly MAC eye shadows to achieve the look, but feel free to dive into your own collection and be creative :)
