Hello! While going through my wardrobe a few days ago, I discovered this dress hidden under a sweater; I had completely forgotten about this dress and was happy to see it again. Although the short babydoll fit and lightweight material of this dress make it more of a summer dress, I knew I wanted to wear it again soon. 

Of course, layering was key to making this dress appropriate to be worn in this chilly weather. I started off by layering a pair of thick leggings underneath the dress. I then styled my black fringe kimono over the dress. I will admit that this fringe kimono doesn't provide much warmth but I love the movement that the fringe creates and love how the kimono looks paired with various coats. My leopard print coat is really what kept me warm. 

To emphasize the color of the dress, I slipped a pair of blue crew socks over the leggings. I then styled my neutral, tan Doc Martens with the socks and let just a little bit of the blue socks peek out over the top of the boots.

Accessories played a key role in this look. I started off with several golden rings- a two-finger spiked ring, a stone ring and another statement ring. Additionally, I donned my new spiked necklace with this look. 

Lily Wang recently sent me this necklace courtesy of ShopLately. This is the "Carlyn Spike Collar Necklace." I'm very pleased with this necklace- the rich gold color, edgy spikes and lightweight metal make this necklace a must-have. Even better yet, it's currently on sale for just $4- yes only $4!

Fur Trimmed Coat

Hello! This photo was taken yesterday when I went into Manayunk with a few of my best friends. Although it was a dreary day, we decided to venture into Manayunk to walk around a little, shop and grab a hot drink. 

I styled my look around this burgundy, paisley dress. The bohemian print, breezy style and rich color of this dress make it one of my favorite dresses in my wardrobe. I layered it with a black cardigan and vintage fur-trimmed coat. I slipped into a pair of fleece-lined tights to keep warm and paired vintage oxford flats with the outfit. I accessorized with a black leather bag and a couple golden statement necklaces. Berry lipstick and oversize glasses completed the look.

Stripes & Layers

Hello! These photos were taken of one of my outfits earlier this week. Although you can't tell from these photos, it was actually snowing that day so my outfit relied heavily on layering in order to stay warm. 

My look revolved around this tan and black striped dress. I haven't worn this dress in a while so I decided that it was time to pull this dress back out of my wardrobe. The neutral colors, classic print and simple silhouette make this a piece that I'm glad to have in my wardrobe. I layered a long black cardigan and black crochet duster vest over the dress. I added a boho-luxe feeling to the look with my cream-colored, faux fur coat. I don't think I've ever loved a coat as much as I love this one and I have to continually resist the urge to wear it everyday. 

To keep my legs warm, I slipped on a pair of black opaque tights. I added a pop of color to the look with my cherry-colored Doc Martens. Several golden necklaces and my oversize glasses completed the look.
