Bells of Holly

Totally living for this bell sleeved strapless top from Tobi!

It’s trendy, it’s easy to wear and it’s perfect for this time of year! Even with these bell sleeves it’s still super simple to throw on a jacket, like this metallic green one.

And of course I had to throw in the shorts for that Floridian style.

Let’s Fall Into Fashion

Summer is always my favorite season, but slightly excited for fall, mostly because of these amazing lace up booties!

FYI, you can turn almost any outfit into a fall outfit with a simple floppy hat! And they make for a great prop to get those “instaworthy” pictures. ;P

Not Too Shabby

The perfect ending to an amazing/hectic/crazy summer. Picking some delicious fruit from the wild Alaskan apple trees in arguably one of the coziest dresses ever.

Cold Weather Essentials

Living in Florida, the cooler days are few and far between, but with winter comes the occasional chilly day, and it pays to be prepared! Last month, AroonMelane published a post called “My Favorite Sweater Dresses For This Season, highlighting the beautiful sweater dress and the many sweater dresses out there that you are bound to love. But what else should be in your closet as your winter essentials?

fishsweat1. The Chunky Fisherman Sweater
As Glamour is quick to point out, the chunky, cuddly fisherman sweater is every fashion designer and blogger’s dream come true. The cable knit is versatile, and you’ll find many uses for it through cooler days, be it with a skirt or with a nice pair of tailored pants.

blkturtle2. A Classic Black Turtleneck
Another item you should have, the black turtleneck is something you can wear in every season, but it works wonderfully in the winter because it’s easy to pair it with a nice midi coat. If the weather isn’t cold enough for layering, the turtleneck itself should be classy enough with a few chunky accessories.

leatherboot3. The Leather Boot
An obvious choice, the leather boot is featured on just about every Winter Essentials list, and even the Gift Guide on Woman Within. While a good pair of leather boots is too expensive to give as a gift, making the investment for yourself is sure to pay off, as the versatile leather boot can be worn over pants and leggings, or with the right cut of dresses.

fleecesarf4. A Fleece Scarf
Nothing quite says winter as well as fleece does. This warm material comes in all shades, and you’re sure to find that a good scarf is a great way to add color to a drab winter outfit, as well as add that much-needed texture and layering to your winter clothes.

brightbag5. The Bright Carryall
Harper’s Bazaar calls the bright-colored carryall “a smile does when you are feeling down” because it instantly lifts your mood and elevates your outfit. This is a great way to add personality to your winter clothes if you find yourself wearing a lot of neutral shades.

What do you think count as your winter wardrobe essentials?

Sweaters are such versatile pieces of clothing, this striped sweater was very oversized, so I thought it would be fun to try and wear it as a dress! Obviously this would be super cute paired with some leggings, but here in Florida, the leggings may be a little overkill as it is still not below 70 degrees!

A quick tip when shopping for comfy, oversized sweaters, is to look in the men’s department! I have quite a few sweaters that I adore, which I picked up from the men’s section, and no one would even know!

I alway enjoy a piece of clothing that has small details. This top may not look like anything too special from far away, but up close you can notice the gorgeous beaded detail, that makes this shirt different from most others! Even a simple, not colorful outfit can have something extra that brings attention to it. Paired with some high waisted pants and boots, and this outfit is the perfect fall look. If you get a little too cold, it’s easy enough to throw on a cute jacket or cardigan to finish off the look.

Fall Is Here

As most know, Florida is not much for having changing seasons. But whenever a cold front comes through, we are all excited to break out whatever fall clothes we have! It is easy to create a cute fall look even if you are still in warmer weather. Just wear darker fall shades (black, rust, emerald green, maroon, navy, etc) but in more summery shaped pieces. For this look I decided to wear an all all black tank paid with a solid black skirt. The outfit overall works for the warm weather, but the boots and plaid shirt complete the look to make it more fall appropriate.
