Fabulous Faux Fur: On Trend for Winter

Hey guys! Since I live in California, I’m not too educated on snow style and practical clothing for going out in the snow. So, needless to say, when I do get the chance to dress up for the snow I get so excited that my outfits are pre-planned and ready to go! Although I admittedly don’t know much about living in snow, I do know that cold weather calls for fun outfits. As the weather is getting warmer and warmer here in California, people are jumping at the opportunity to get in one last good ski this President’s Weekend. One of my favorite trends of late 2017 was the fun and colorful furs that were spotted on celebrities and red carpets. So I have gathered all of my favorite FAUX furs down below for you guys, at a range of prices! Now I must say that I personally only wear faux fur, so all the fur down below is FAKE. Regardless, even faux fur can get expensive! The key to rocking faux fur is all in the appearance of the fur and the quality of the fur while keeping it on a budget. Keep reading for an inspiration collage and the faux fur that you can buy!

The 6 Trendiest 2017 New Year’s Eve Looks!

Hey guys! I hope you all had a safe and happy holiday! With that said, there is still one more holiday to celebrate: New Years! Its the perfect time to pull out all of the glitz and glamour that gets pushed to the back of our closets every other day of the year. I mean who doesn’t want to shine like a disco ball for the new year?! The new year is all about having a positive perspective and mindset, and there’s no better way of displaying that than having an AMAZING outfit to grace your Instagram feed! Step 1. of finding the perfect outfit is knowing the look you want to go for. After doing some research, I have gathered the perfect list of possible looks that are fail proof and have a picture-worthy guarantee.

1.The Simple Satin:

This is just a classic go-to when all else fails. With so many color options, this really gives you the opportunity to dress it up or down. Pair it with some heels and complimentary jewelry, and you’re ready to have a good time with family. Trade your heels for some trendy sneakers and add a high ponytail, and you’re ready to hang out with some friends.

2. The Classic Shimmer:

This one goes without saying but New Years calls for some glitter. This is the one day out of the whole year where your dress can be sequined and beaded to your hearts content…just don’t bring out the bedazzler.

3. The Pantsuit:

It’s almost 2018! Girls wearing pantsuits dominated the fashion magazines all of 2017 and aren’t going away any time soon. A classic tailored suit could look great on any one, even for a party. Need to make it more festive and less work attire? Let the low cut of the blazer speak for itself and pair it with a low cut blouse and long necklace to flatter the neckline. Or, throw it back to the satin trend and pair your pantsuit with a color matching satin blouse underneath, with some fun colorful or sparkly pumps to match.

4. The Shorts and Strappy Sandals:

I’m all for changing up the fashion scene and standing out in a crowd, and what better way to do that than wearing pants or shorts when everyone other girl will most likely be wearing a dress? Some tailored shorts, lace, printed, or even sequin blouse, paired with some killer heels will be sure to turn heads.

5. The Jumpsuit:

Continuing on from #3 and #4, wearing something other than a dress or skirt for a New Year’s Eve party screams 2018 more than anything else. Like the pantsuit, a monochromatic jumpsuit is flattering to almost all body types and makes any girl look unstoppable. The outfit is practically done for you. All you need now is some sparkly accessories to make this look even more fun. Any hairstyle would look great with this as well, such as: high ponytail, sleek bun, or loose curls. Not to mention this could be worn both in the spring in summer to family gatherings, graduations, and spring weddings.

6. The Formal Romper:

Last but certainly not least, we have the romper. I love the idea of a romper but can never seem to find one that I love. When I spotted these, I knew I would definitely put them in the running for my New Year’s outfit. It’s just something different that the classics and once again, the outfit is pretty much done for you.

Leather Weather: Where to get this season’s most popular jacket style!

Happy Thanksgiving everyone! One thing I love about Thanksgiving is that as soon as its over, my family starts decorating our house and tree for Christmas, which reminds me that there is colder weather ahead! One of the trickiest things about living in the Bay Area (San Francisco) is that we have cold weather but nothing compared to freezing temperatures and snow. This means that you have to find an awkward medium of dressing warm but not going crazy with the ski jackets and snow boots. So, for anyone who deals with cold weather this winter, a sturdy jacket is a necessity! Leather jackets have always been popular but have always had an association with riding a motorcycle or being tough. However, anyone who’s worn a leather jacket knows that nothing can make you feel as confident as rocking a stylish leather jacket. Now, so many stores are coming out with cute but trendy leather jackets that are changing the dynamic of this old time style. While these jackets may make you feel like a T-Bird from Grease, they will make you look as flawless and confident as a Pink Lady. Some great stores to check out if you LOVE this style is Topshop, Forever 21, Anthropologie, Zara, and Lulus.


Hope you guys enjoyed this post!
