Florida Chills

This is for sure my current favorite outfit I own! Obsessing over this trench and Steve Madden boots! It can be hard to dress cute in Florida winters, the day starts off freezing cold but come noon and it becomes steaming hot! I find this look able to satisfy my need for warmth, while also being able to keep me cool for the hot sun!

4 Trends to Try in 2016

With 2016 officially underway, it’s time to leave last year in the past and embrace everything new—and that includes fashion trends. Though chilly temps might still be the norm in most parts of the country, spring styles are already front and center in the fashion world. And as much as I love my sweaters and boots, the latest designs for the spring season make me glad to live in a place where I don’t have to wait until May to wear them! Keep an eye out for these must-try trends to add to your wardrobe in 2016.

  1. Half-Moon Bag

As soon as Victoria Beckham’s half-moon handbag design walked (or rather, was carried) down the runway at her Spring 2016 show during New York Fashion Week, fashion-followers everywhere starting lusting after the new “it” purse. As Glamour writes, the crescent-shaped style has all the key components of a bag of the season: it’s highly Instagrammable, has a distinguishable shape, and, perhaps most importantly, it’s roomy enough to hold all of your must-have items. Check, check, and check!

2. Shimmer and Shine

The holidays may be over, but don’t put away the sparkly pieces that you rocked during the annual party circuit just yet. High-shine details and metallic shimmer are in for spring, making every day feel a little more festive than usual. PopSugar’s coverage of this trend can be helpful, as it covers everything from shorts to cocktail dresses, giving you a way to wear a NYE-worthy outfit year-round.

3. Surprising Sneakers

If one thing is for certain, it’s that this particular trend of 2016 is not made for the gym, tennis courts, or any other type of sweat-inducing activity. Spring’s sneakers put a spin on the classic shape, elevating the once-simple shoe to a more interesting level. While some designers opted for a pointed toe or luxe fabrics, others showcased colorful stitching and metallic finishes. To find your new favorite pair of kicks, Lyst’s shoe collection is a good place to start. The sampling of different designers from across the industry ensures you’ll find just the right surprising sneakers for you.

4. The Slip Dress

A staple of ’90s fashion, the slip dress is trending once again for the new year, and it’s sexier than ever. The subtle, strappy slip of decades past has gotten a makeover, with feminine lace, ruching, and hints of graphic color. Still, if wearing the lingerie-inspired piece outside of your bedroom seems too risqué, top your slip dress with a light oversized sweater or layer a simple tee underneath.

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?
