Cat CostumeMeowHalloweenMeow Pullover

Top: SheIn // Leggings: SheIn // Sneakers: Grasshopper // Lipstick: MAC “Flat Out Fabulous”

Let me start this post by saying that I LOVE getting dressed up for Halloween.  The hair, the makeup, the endless outfit choices – it’s so much fun to completely change up your look for a night.  That being said, sometimes you need a Halloween costume that is simple enough to wear to a Halloween office party or  the bar with friends for casual drinks.  Cue this super basic, but adorable cat outfit.  This pullover has a wear-anywhere type of situation going on.  I’m basically going to live in it.  I added some cut-out leggings to give it a little something extra and threw on a pair of cat ears.  Wha-la – effortless costume. What’s even better?  Pair the top and bottom with other pieces and you can wear them all year long.

Happy Monday!  Things are finally starting to warm up around here which means that it’s time to break out the trench coat!  I got this one from Zara during one of their big sales and I love the way it curves to your figure rather than being boxy like some others that I’ve tried.

Tip: A quick fix for a trench coat with a long belt is to tuck it under itself.  it’s both functional and looks fashion forward!  Have a great week everyone!

When you’re in that awkward transitioning period between winter and spring it can really hard to come up with outfits to accommodate the weather.  Particularly in March and April I find that it’s common (in NJ) to have one day that’s really cold and the next day it can be 70 degrees or more.  We have been experiencing a lot of that in the past week.  It snowed on Monday and by Wednesday it was 78 degrees outside!

I find that it’s really easy to fall into the “what do I wear?” trap during these months because the temperature is just so inconsistent.  One of my go-to transitioning looks is to wear a sweater and jeans of the same color hue paired with bright spring-like accessories.  I love the way the pink bag and green necklace pop against the gray!  What’s your go-to spring transition outfit?

In the winter, it’s tempting to throw on a pair of sweatpants and order takeout, but sometimes a night out is exactly what you really need.  Make your favorite dress cold-weather ready with a pair of tights and a wool coat.  You can also take any coat from blah to fashion forward by draping it over your shoulders instead of wearing it the traditional way.

Okay, so I spoke waaaay too soon with the whole “it’s been a mild winter thing.”  Last weekend we were hit with the Jonas blizzard and as you can see by the huge piles of snow it was pretty intense!  I was basically trapped inside all last weekend, but it was so incredibly relaxing doing nothing for three days straight. Although it’s super cold, I’m obsessed with the way that the camel and brown in my outfit pop against the white snow and my white pants.  There’s something really striking about neutral colors against a blank canvas.  I hope you guys have a happy Friday and a great weekend!

Love,
