Winter into Spring Casual Friday

wearing: purple and gold earrings / lipstick / black twist tee / gold-tone layered necklace c/o BaubleBar / violet nail polish / grey leather jacket / Gucci bag / charcoal jeans / silver mules (old, also love this pair under $100)

Happy Friday! So I can’t seem to stop wearing these comfortable jeans, and this fun tee with a twist! They are my two favorite, casual clothing items for spring. It’s so easy to create different outfits with them just by changing my jacket and shoes.

These flat silver slides have been a favorite of mine since last fall. They are so comfy, and they add some fun to an everyday look. As the weather gets a little bit warmer, this leather jacket is turning into a go-to item for me too.

My cute little nine-year-old son took these photos. He did a pretty good job! Some of them were tilted, and I had to straighten them in Photoshop, but other then that, they turned out pretty good! Now I have two kids who think taking photos is fun! Yay!

Do you have a go-to outfit this season you find yourself reaching for multiple times per week?

Thanks for stopping by!

Wearing a spring sweater in the snow

wearing: pink snow hat (sold out, also love this one) / silver circle earrings / lipstick / blue turtleneck (color sold out, similar blue one here) / spring black and white sweater (last seen here) / black leather gloves / black handbag / spring nail polish / skinny jeans (sold out, similar here) / snow boots (so cozy and warm!)

I love love love this spring sweater I wore at fashion week with my menswear suit! It is really comfortable, and I love the style. So, when we were in Tahoe last week, I wanted to wear it; despite that fact that it was snowing pretty hard outside!

In order to style this spring sweater for snow weather, I layered it over a turtleneck in a contrasting color. Since there is a cold shoulder on the sweater, I thought the peek-a-boo color would be fun. It was perfect for the weather, and with the addition of a jacket, worked well for being outside in the snow.

This sweater will be fun to wear this spring season, and on cool summer evenings when the fog comes in. Do you try to wear spring clothing when it’s still winter outside? What are your tips and tricks?

Walking in a winter wonderland

wearing: bold silver earrings / lipstick / beanie (old, similar here) / black turtleneck / coat c/o JD Williams / black leather gloves (on sale!!) / Chloe handbag / spring nail polish / black skinny jeans / boots (old, also love this pair)

We recently spent ski week in the Lake Tahoe area, and it snowed! My kids have been in the snow plenty of times, but they had never seen snow actually fall out of the sky! It was so magical for them to go outside and play, while snow-flakes fell out of the sky, and towards the ground. They had a blast trying to catch snow on their tongues, and in their hands. I’m not sure how we have been to Tahoe so many times, yet the kids haven’t seen snow fall out of the sky! I guess the snow was already there when we drove up, and/or it fell out of the sky overnight!

I cook most of our meals in the house when we stay in Truckee, but we do eat out once or twice during our stay. This coat from JD Williams, which is incredibly affordable, was perfect for our dinner out. I love showing off a coat by pairing it with an all-black outfit. It is so easy to show off a coat or jacket by wearing all black. This is also an easy way to turn closet staples into a fabulous outfit with the addition of outerwear. Love that!

This coat was part of my New York Fashion Week day two outfit, but I didn’t wear it the whole day because it turned out to not be cold enough! I’m so happy to have it, and to be able to wear it at home, or in Tahoe!

You can find my warm and cozy coat online here. What is your favorite way to show off a coat?
