Mini Winter Lookbook 2018

Mini Winter Lookbook 2018

Over the past weekend, my friend Chelsey (https://chelseynacole.wordpress.com/) and I took advantage of the nice weather we had for about 30 seconds to shoot a little winter lookbook for y’all. I feel like it’s been forever since the last time I did one of these, so I’m super excited to be creating outfits again. Let’s get into it.

Simple:

 

The first look I have is a bit on the laid-back-grungy-side. The over-sized button up with the deep purple hue brings that out in me. I wore a simple grey t-shirt underneath with some black skinny jeans and ankle boots. A look like this is perfect for those days you don’t feel like getting dressed, but know you would feel better trying a little bit. It was definitely the most comfortable of all these looks. This is something I wear on a regular basis throughout the winter.



Wintertime Sadness:

I don’t know what it is about this look that is so moody. The grey wall just feels like winter and the soft pink amps up the mellow vibes. What I did to create this was wear a monochromatic pink t-shirt dress with the same grey top as the first look. I tied the shirt in a knot to make the silhouette more chic. The thigh high socks are for warmth and as you can see the boots are versatile.

To me, this outfit has a very blurred line between soft grunge and sad prep? What I’m saying is, I don’t know who I am. And I feel like this look definitely reads that. Maybe that’s why I love it so much.

I hope I’ll be able to wear cute dresses like this again in the near future. We’ll see. With this weather being warm and cold, it’s hard to know what to dress like in the mornings. I am a huge fan of layering, and I would love to continue being bold with dresses this season.

Beige:

This look plays around a lot with neutrals. It has the neutral dress and shoes, the white socks, and the pale pink. I did the same thing with the prior look, where I threw a top over my dress. I like doing this to layer up and recreate a basic dress into a functional skirt. It keeps me warm while also letting me wear some of my favorite pieces. You could always throw on some cute tights underneath if the socks aren’t enough.



Overalls:

Are overalls still a thing? I don’t even care. This look gives me Nancy Wheeler inspiration. The stripes matched with overalls has and always will be a major mood. I’ve had these overalls for two years, and after being made fun of when I wore them the first time, I thought I’d put them up for good. But here we are, fresh into the new year, and I’m ready to venture out of my comfort zone again.

The dark denim overalls really set this look apart from other recreations. To make sure your figure still shows through, I like to wear a crop top underneath instead of a full t-shirt. I feel like the artist I am in this outfit. I honestly love this. I paired this look with my black faux leather booties.

Thanks for reading everybody. Chelsey and I had a lot of fun making this for you. I hope it inspires some look for y’all in the future.

Warm Winter 

The skies are gloomy outside and the wind has started to pick up. Hello Winter fashion! For this post I wanted to show you some fashion trends I’ve been seeing all over the place and also show some stuff I think SHOULD be trending. 

SKY HIGH: 

First of all, everyone knows that boots are an absolute Must-Have for the cold season. I usually rock ankle booties, but this year I wanted to venture out with midi, knee high, and thigh high killer boots. 

Both of these types of boots are leather. I hope to have a maroon pair of suede thigh highs soon but for now I have these, which I’m totally content with.

SIMPLE SWEATERS: 

Sweaters are obviously a go to for the cold. We’ve seen all kinds of styles for sweaters in years past, like last year, which was the over sized sweater trend. That look is so perfect for comfy date nights to the movies or a coffee run, however this year I see (at least in my mirror) simple styles and simple silhouettes. 

This sweater above is thrifted, and I love the fit of it. It is so comfy and and the slits, which you can slightly see in the sides, are so cute. It brings a nice swing to the silhouette. The colors are also very refreshing. 

This outfit is honestly one of my favorites. I actually adore the crew neck style of this sweater, and layered over a monotone t-shirt adds a nice warming and color blocking effect. 

Simple sweaters are very easy to find and easy to style. I feel like slim fit sweaters are more sophisticated than over sized ones, so these are perfect for fancy dinners, concerts, or work.

SWEATY FETTY: 

Am I the only one seeing sweat suits all over Instagram, or are we making our way back to 2010? Either way, I totally love it. 

This look is perfect for winter. The cropped sweater is definitely back in, and mached with a cute pair of joggers, it really amps up the “I’m cute but not today” game. Or if you are one of those girls you goes to the gym, or one of those girls who -wishe- they went to the gym, THIS LOOK FOR YOU! 

This is one of those styles that is easy to create, while feeling comfortable and fashionable simultaneously. The trick is to find a top that sinches at the wrist and pants that sinches at the ankles. This will give your body a form, preventing you from being swallowed by your clothing.
