Casual go-to winter outfit

Wearing: Kendra Scott earrings / Chanel spring lipstick / Alexander McQueen scarf / Banana Republic tee (on sale!!) / Fendi DotCom bag / Gap jeans (on sale!!) / Watch / Kendra Scott ring / Chanel spring nail polish / Booties (old, also love this pair)

Most winter days here in the San Francisco Bay Area, offer up mild temperatures in the afternoon. So, I may start my day off all bundled up in a coat or sweater, but by noon, I am in a long sleeve tee and scarf.

This scarf has been my go-to all season long. It is warm, edgy, and blue! I love blue! It looks cute as the centerpiece of an outfit, as in these photos, or paired with a coat. I am so happy I splurged on it!

What is your go-to, casual winter outfit where you live?

Stripes are so much fun! I have always loved stripes, but after seeing them splashed all over the spring 2017 runways, I became more enamored with the pattern than ever before.

This black and white striped dress from SheIn is perfect for rocking the horizontal stripes trend right now, and into next year. The fabric is lightweight, and easy to care for. So for cold days, it can be warmed up with booties, a scarf, and a jacket. I love how this dress also looks topped off with a moto jacket; or any leather jacket!

If you want to wear a striped dress casually, this particular dress can easily be paired with sneakers or slip-on sneakers for a casual, street style look. You can top the look off with a bucket bag or backpack. Voila! Instant street cred 😉

When the warm spring months hit, this striped dress from SheIn will look amazing with block heel slides and a statement necklace. I love owning pieces which are fun to style, and easily transition between seasons.

Since stripes are a hot trend right now, you can’t wrong with a striped dress to take you from now into next year! See below for all my favorite striped dresses from SheIn; all under $50! Love that!

Alexander McQueen eau de parfum review

Alexander McQueen eau de parfum is a beautiful, floral fragrance made in France. The floral mix of fragrance notes features a timeless combination which is subtle, and easy to wear on a daily basis. This could easily become your signature fragrance!

I tested out Alexander McQueen edp by first spraying it on around 7am. The scent was soft yet complex. Due to the high quality ingredients in Alexander McQueen eau de parfum, the fragrance lasted throughout the day, and well into the night. It is always fabulous when you don’t have to reapply a perfume during the day. Love that!

Alexander McQueen eau de parfum is a combination of Sambac Jasmine, Tuberose, and Ylang-Ylang. The combination of these three florals offers a vintage, timeless fragrance experience which is easy to wear to the office, in tight quarters such as the theater, and for casual weekend activities. Since it is such a classic scent, Alexander McQueen eau de parfum can be worn for any style of occasion from a casual weekend picnic to a formal gala event.

This has turned out to be my new go-to fragrance for the winter season. I rate Alexander McQueen eau de parfum five out of five stars! Love!
