We shot this post a few weeks back, and I was so excited to feature this fantastic faux fur-trimmed parka (now on sale!). But then Bomb Cyclone blew in, along with arctic temps, and fun fashion flew off the radar. Fortunately “normal” winter weather has returned, and I can put this parka, along with a snappy beret and footwear other than snow boots, into heavy rotation.
Thanks to BomboGenesis 2018, I spent most of yesterday working from home. Not in these cozy jammies but with this super cute pooch to keep me company. OK, and also to distract me with some ear scratching and tummy rubbing (his!). When Nature called (for Bowie!) we both had to bundle up to brave the blowing snow, deep drifts and below freezing temps. I didn’t think it was so bad. Not so sure about Bowie. While I’m currently juggling a couple of projects, I’m also working on getting Life’s a Spritz off to its best year yet. So in planning forward, I did a little looking back. At my most liked Instagram outfit posts. Believe it or not, this look came in at #1! (Think my Bowie “accessory” helped!!)
I can’t believe it’s already the last day of 2017, and that we’ll wake up to a New Year tomorrow. But before that happens one last post from our last day up in the Dacks, at least for a few weeks. And if you can’t tell by my “frozen” smile, it was seriously cold up there! What you can see with this outfit: a pom-pom beanie, puffer and OTK boots. What’s not obvious? The Uniqlo HEATTECH turtleneck and socks that helped me brave the single digit weather. While not down-filled, this puffer jacket keeps you quite cozy. And it’s also reversible!
I’m writing this post from our cabin up in the Adirondacks, where they had a foot and and a half of snow two days ago. So as wintery as these pics make Jersey City look, it’s truly a winter wonderland up here. (I will be shooting some ADK posts over the holiday break so stay tuned for those.) Whether I’m dressing for a blog shoot or my “day job” most of my outfits start with a key piece that inspires the rest of the look. I started with this coat but looking at these pics now I’m newly inspired by every single piece. And plan to put them all into heavy wardrobe rotation.
I’m thinking this look is the country counterpoint to my last Jersey City post…which was 11 days ago! I have been the busiest over these last almost-2-weeks that I’ve been in a long, long while. A big shoot and edit for a L’Oreal haircare project and a new campaign pitch on another haircare brand. While I do love what I do, I’ve missed posting! We shot this look last weekend, and it’s only now late on the following Friday night that I could sit down and write this post, share these pics. Hope you enjoy!
Hello, Holidays! Thanksgiving was just over a week ago. Do you feel like you blinked and one fantastic holiday is now hurtling towards another? I don’t know about you, but this time of year I feel like everything goes into hyper mode. I made a detailed TO DO list today, and guess what, not checking it all off. But while we’re all multi-tasking, let’s also take a deep breath. We’ve got time to get it done.
It’s finally Fall y’all, and that means colors like merlot (or burgundy or pinot) and mustard (um…don’t have a snappy variation on that) are on the fashion menu. And I think they are all deliciously beautiful. This look mixes ruffles high and low, not to mention my attempt at “ruffling” my hair. But there you go, sometimes you just have to go for it!
After four straight nights of amazing music, socializing and restaurants, I am racing to post this before midnight. I made two posts a week my goal so here goes. This look starts with this AMAZING dress that costs $36.99! Seriously!! It’s from the always need-to-shop Who What Wear collaboration with Target. Florals are big this Fall but some just look too Spring-y to me. This one is different. And I think it will still look fresh come Spring/Summer, especially with some strappy black sandals.
This Fall the fur is flying…off the runways and out of the stores. From luxury pelts to fabulous and faux, there is something furry for everyone. For this look I decided to accessorize with a new fave bag and slides, both trimmed in fun faux fur. Can I just say this raffia-and-fur bag is about the cutest thing! And these slides look luxe and feel like you’re walking on pillows. I forgot all about my plantar fascitis!
Is it crazy to build your whole look around a pair of shoes? Not if it’s Shoesday Tuesday! When it came to these llama-detailed velvet sneaks, it was love at first sight for me. But not buy at first sight. I hemmed and hawed for a couple of weeks, then panicked they would sell out. So…a few secs on my Mac, and they were mine. And now we’re together forever, wherever they take me! I mean seriously…are they not the cutest.
