Outfits Lately

I’ve been sharing A LOT of daily outfits for you on Instagram (and videos!), and I wanted to share them here on the blog as well! I took a poll of what you want me to style, and Spanx faux leather leggings were top of the list. I styled the faux leather leggings here, 4 ways. Which is your favorite? I will also note, the new house has already inspired me so much and I’m loving the new space, windows, and mountain views, I just need a new selfie mirror. Let me know what you think!

I’ve been shopping eBay for about a decade, so it’s no surprise I was on there recently looking for a Burberry wrap. My friend came into town with a Burberry wrap that was a cashmere and silk blend. She brought it to our dinners and it seemed to comfortably compliment every outfit. Fact: you always look chic when you’re comfortable. I joked to her I was going to steal it from her before she left, but I was only half kidding.  Instead of stealing it, I went on eBay to find one myself. Hers was a couple years old so I knew eBay was a number one destination for vintage or past season pieces. Well, I’m happy to report, I found one! It’s warm cashmere for chilly nights, cold airplanes, and really chic.

Here, I’m wearing a Burberry wrap I’ve probably searched for on and off for years! Finally, I found one at my price point, I was able to communicate with the seller about color, condition, etc, and voilà! I love the ability to filter my search on eBay from color, price, and even filter sellers! Did you know,  85% of all clothing, shoes, accessories, jewelry and beauty products on eBay are brand-new?

I can quickly navigate what I want in terms of size and color and if I want the seller to accept offers, etc, and fast. The latter is helpful in my busy household when I have 5 kids asking me to cut apples, help with homework, and ask for the tenth time if they can have more chocolate pretzels! Can you say sugar high? I’m happy to report, my wrap arrived within a matter of days and it will be seen in future #Airportstyle posts. 

Thank you eBay for sponsoring this post!

How was your Christmas? Reid and I enjoyed our slowest and sweetest Christmas yet. We were surrounded by my lovely in-laws and lots of LEGO’s. I would be lying if I said I haven’t stepped on them. But speaking of stepping, these boots are my fave and one of my wardrobe staples, and this dress is quickly a favorite for its flattering fit, tulip hem and under $60 price!

I’ve also included some of my favorites from around the web below:

H&M is killing the sweater game, and if you’re not convinced, just peak at their new arrivals are you’re sure to fill your cart with goodies. As I write, I have 6 items in my cart, ha!  The hardest decision may be what color to get – I mean I almost ordered 3 red sweaters in as different knit, crazy! However you cannot ignore the fun price point – mostly under $25 and a couple mohair or cashmere under $100. That’s good because my kids Christmas lists have about three Lego sets each – that’s 12 Lego sets total, so I’m good with $20 sweaters and splurging on the boots. How about you?

Happy Humpday!

With the kids starting school, I’m in search of easy meals and even easier outfits. Enter the easy one-piece. This chambray one-piece romper is just what I was in search of paired with sleek OTK boots to kick it up a notch.  See an under $228 option here). Speaking of boots, it’s a great time to get your hands on the coveted always sold-out over-the-knee boots. I was scouring the internet last year for over the knee boots in my size 9. I’m embarrassed to say how long it took but I finally settled on these gray ones in size 9.5. As a good friend should, I’m telling you now, before the leaves change and your neighbors are wearing OTK boots holding their PSL’s (pumpkin spice lattes). Warning you’ll be seeing me style these boots many times over, which just means its a great buy. What are some of your favorite Fall buys?

If you’re wondering what to wear when the weather is in between cold and hot, winter and spring, hot chocolate and iced coffee, the search is over. Enter the closet essentials: gray over-the-knee boots and a sweater dress. I’m always surprised how comfortable a sweater dress is, and don’t think  you can’t wear it with gray sneakers. See this post on cozy sweaters. What’s your cozy go-to?

I’m sharing a couple styling tips I use myself. To be honest, it’s not everyday I feel 100% in an outfit. It takes lots of trial and error to get an outfit right for an event, occasion, or the blog. When I don’t feel like wearing anything but pajama pants, aka having an ‘off’ day, I use the following tips:

1. Nude heels elongate the leg, making you appear taller.

2. A Belt – Cinching the waist is the easiest way to creating shape.

3. Pointed Toe shoes and boots – believe it or not, a pointed toe boot, heel or flat also elongates the legs, making you appear taller and therefore slimmer.

4. Wear monotone colors – for example, wear a let’s say black turtleneck with a black pencil skirt underneath a cozy shearling coat or colorful blazer. Instant slimming! No protein shakes, 35 min stair steps, or exhausting cardio required. Sound convincing?

THIS designer was onto something, chevron is an incredibly flattering shape. See my  top chevron picks here.

It’s no secret, over-the-knee boots are the must-have of the season. Wear them up or down, with leggings or skinny jeans, and recently I even wore mine with a ruffle dress (more of that to come!). Talk about versatility! I love the fit-like-a-glove feel and the heel isn’t too high to make chasing my 3 year-old an impossibility. As I’m sure you know by now, the kid’s got tons of personality and spunk so chasing him happens more than I’d like. Below, I show 6 OTK boots for every desired heel height and budget, from $69 to $875. See also how I styled them here. Don’t forget, you’ve got until midnight tonight to enter the ring giveaway!
