Leopard Is The New Black

Skirt: Old Navy / Long Sleeve: Nordstrom (old) / Clutch: Free People (came inside a tote) / Heels: Ivanka Trump via Nordstrom / Necklace: Nordstrom

If you know me well, or if you have been following along with my blog you know a little bit about my obsession with gold, sparkles and leopard. I do not dub myself a girly girl whatsoever but these three things are all a (sick) obsession for me. I think leopard is honestly a neutral, and over time it is becoming more and more accepted as a neutral by a broader range of people. I also think it has a lot to do with the way you wear leopard, I am in love with this skirt and its from Old Navy so you know it was an amazing price, it is such a staple and so perfect for anything from a date night to a day at the office. You can easily make this simple pencil skirt into so many different looks, add a moto jacket for a more aggressive look, or add a red blazer for a little pop. I added this statement necklace and a bold lip to keep it simple but chic. It is amazing how such a small pop of color on your lips can totally transform any look. Try it with your next outfit.

Ready for the Holidays // Outfit #2 The LBD

Dress: Zara / Heels: Make Me Chic / Earrings: Sheinside / Clutch: Vintage

This second holiday look I put together is much more laid back, chic and simple compared to the amazing sequin pants from last week. There is nothing more chic than an LBD. I am really loving the look of long sleeve dresses right now, I think it is a really great look that makes everyone look a little bit "longer". I am also turning onto midi length dresses and skirts as you saw earlier this week as well, I thought for a while they would make me look really short but as I have said . This dress from Zara is such amazing knit material, and was only $49, it is totally a dress you can wear all the time you can add a statement necklace, or add a jacket; the possibilities are endless. I think it is very important to invest in a LBD for each season that you are totally in love with and fits you like a glove, it is a great go to that you know you can reach for in your closet for any event. I have a few more holiday looks coming for you, ones that are perfect for any and every holiday event you may be making an appearance at this season.

Aztec Sweater

Sweater: Windsor Store c/o / Jeans: American Eagle / Tee: Forever 21 / Heels: Sam Edelman / Mug: VistaPrint / Sunglasses: Ray Ban / Dog: Hero <3 This cardi is a show stopper and is going to be a serious favorite of mine this coming winter. Its perfect to wear with a comfortable and causal outfit for lounging in the backyard like this one, but can also function as a super lax Sunday lazy day sweater when your sitting in front of the TV . As you know I am not tall and this cardi is the perfect length for me. The quality is really on par in relation to the price. I am really impressed with Windsor lately, they are blowing me away, and I always want one of everything when I am on their website, its quite dangerous to be honest. My next go to outfit will include brown booties, blue jeans and a white tee shirt, another perfect combo for this fabulous tribal print cardi. How much of a cutie is our new rescue dog Hero! We are in serious love with him, he is such a big lover and we are so lucky to have found him and made him part of our family! There are hundreds of thousands of animals out there needing homes, please look into adopting animals! We have adopted both of our animals and would not trade them for the world! <3 Andy & Hero

Maroon Maxi Skirt & A Leather Jacket

Jacket: TJMaxx / Tee: Forever 21 / Skirt: Zara (similar here) / Heels: Ann Taylor / Necklace: Sheinsdie /  Rings: The Love Knot Shop

One of my favorite things to do when it comes to outfit planning, creating an outfit for an event  or just get stuck in a closet rut is go looking for inspiration on websites, like pinterest, instagram or my personal fav my top brands websites. Forever 21 is a go to for me (especially their looks lately!) also ASOS is a great example, their outfits are always styled perfectly. You for sure don't have to buy the pieces but you can create and inspired outfit with stuff you already have. Find my inspiration for this outfit here. I already had all of these pieces in my closet, but wore them all in a totally different way than I had in the past. While yes of course some times my closet itself inspires me, or I just pull things out of the closet to create an outfit, but sometimes you just need a little something to get your gears turning. I always find once I start I immediately can feel my creative juices start flowing, and in no time I have a handful of perfect ideas and outfits. If you ever feel stuck give this a try, I promise you will come out with a perfect outfit, sometimes you may also want to go shopping, happens to me every time, but I try to contain myself and shop my own closet to create new outfits! What do you do when you get stuck or need outfit inspiration?
