If you have ever been in the market for the perfect business casual dress, or just a midi length dress that fits like a glove -- this dress is your answer. It is cut perfectly to hug your every curve perfectly. Every stitched seemed to be in the perfect spot for my body. I also am not usually a cap sleeve person, but this cap sleeve was a very flattering length, not to long not to short. I added a red wool blazer that I is an oldie but a good from, of course, J Crew. I also just so happen to have the perfect navy heels from banana to go along with this oh so perfect navy dress...lucky me!

Dress: JOA via Le Tote // Shoes: Steve Madden // Sunnies: Karen Walker via Ditto // Clutch: Sheinside
Remember when there was a pretty white coating of snow on the ground? Now we have about three feet....yes you read that right three feet. #juno2015 There is nothing better than a snow day, but of course this girl gets sick on the one snow day we will probably get this winter, typical!
The material of this dress is utter perfection, it is so thick that it is very figure flattering, but not restricting and in addition its uber warm. I usually can not pull off skater dresses because of my height, or well, lack there of, but I think the long sleeve's helped balanced that out. I could also see myself wearing this dress with some black tights if I was planning on wearing it in more inclement weather. I think there are many other ways to wear this dress, throw a jacket over it, or even a sweater and you have another whole look. Don't you just love pieces like that!?

Skirt: Jack via Le Tote / Top: Forever 21 / Gloves: Macy's (similar) / Sunnies: Forever 21 / Heels: Steve Madden
There is nothing more classic than all black. There is also nothing that flatters your figure more. This Skirt from Le Tote is everything. It literally fits like a glove and I can see myself wearing it with tons and tons of pieces, add a crop top for a more casual look, or a thank and jacket for a date night. I also love the texture of this top from Forever 21, I am such a sucker for textured sweaters and sweatshirts. I just think they are so much better than a plain flat top. I hope you all in New England are enjoying getting snowed in! The snow this winter is a little bit late, don't you think!

Jacket: Primark (old) / Shirt: Forever 21 (old) / Tee: Forever 21 (old) / Denim: American Eagle / Booties: Aldo / Necklaces: Forever 21 / Sunnies: Target / Tote: Free People / Bracelets: Alex & Ani
A great way to remix your closet is to pull a look together by adding layers. I have worn all of these pieces before, many many times, I have worn them all on their own and with other pieces. But together, I love the mix of prints, stripes, camo, and leopard, along with the chambray and denim. It gives the look tons of dimension and interest.
I returned from Germany on Saturday evening, thankfully, even though it was snowing, and now we are supposed to get 2 feet of snow or more tomorrow. Talk about all at once -- We are going to get a whole winters worth of snow in one day. I don't mind it when I don't have any were to go, and when my hubby has work off too. #workfromhome. Stay warm if the you are in New England!

Sweater: JCrew Factory / Pants: JCrew Factory / Clutch: Express / Sunnies: Ray Ban / Heels: Ann Taylor / Bracelets: Alex & Ani
You really can't go wrong when it comes to faux leather, I have been on the hunt for a pair that I love for a while now, I wore these faux leather track pants a while back, but couldn't find a true pant that I loved without them being too tight, not breathable, too squeeky and/or plastic feeling. Of course JCrew did them perfectly (not surprised), I got these lovers from the JCrew Factory (and currently on sale for $48), which made them even better. This sweater has also become a favorite of mine from the moment I saw it, I am a sucker for anything menswear inspired, especially when it its men's inspired but fits like an "oversized" women's piece. I love the look of leather and men's wear paired with just a few feminine pieces, in this case a leopard clutch and a nude heel.
