My Winter Essentials

Winter is my absolute favorite season to dress up for and now I get to shop for some real winter clothes this year. Here are a few of my favorite clothing and accessory trends and where to buy them. (Click the titles to go find where to buy these items). 

Faux Fur Coat

So far I have bought 3 faux fur coats… I know, I don’t need three but I just love them so much. I got my coats from Nordstrom Rack, Marshall’s, and Boohoo all for under $70. They are perfect for a fancy night out or to simply dress up an outfit. And fur coats just make you feel automatically confident!

Newsboy hat

Newsboy hats have become my favorite new accessory. They are stylish and will keep you warm during the winter. They are perfect for that bad hair day or one of those days when you want to dress up but don’t feel like putting on makeup. These hats are an effortless way to be trendy and this hat was ONLY $8.99 on Amazon…

Striped Wide Leg Pant

I have become obsessed with patterned pants thanks to one of my super stylish suitemates (Love you, Britt). The pants that I bought were under $20 at Forever 21 and they have a huge collection of pants. The pants below are only $16 (linked above). These pants are versatile for all weather types. For warmer weather pair them with a crop top and for colder weather pair them with a cute sweater. I personally love wearing these pants with my cropped turtleneck sweater.

Steve Madden Patent Leather Boots

Steve Madden is my absolute favorite shoe store. I have never been much of a combat boot girl but I fell in love with these boots. These boots are amazing for the winter but also can be worn during warmer weather too. They look cute with jeans but I also love wearing them with casual skirts and dresses too. These are also only $60 (over 50% off) right now!!

Hooded Feather Cardigan

This impulse buy was one of the greatest decisions of my life. For only $30 at Express I got this hooded cardigan that feels like I’m basically wearing a blanket. I will wear this cardigan with leggings and a basic tee for a more casual outfit or I will also dress it up with jeans and a cute top. It is my new favorite lazy-day sweater and so cozy in this chilly weather.

Gold Hoop Earrings

My everyday jewelry now consists of gold hoops. They can complete almost any outfit and work with so many hairstyles. I got my hoops for $1.50 at Primark, but they are available at many other stores for cheap. Hoops are perfect for casual everyday wear and for going out.

Adidas Track Pants

I have never been one to wear sweatpants but now I have fallen in love with my Adidas track pants. I have a wide-leg and jogger pair of pants. They are perfect for that “athletic-chic” look. I love wearing my pants with cropped hoodies (there are tons of cute ones at Brandy Melville and Forever 21) and my favorite athletic shoes.  These pants can be found at urban outfitters, Macy’s, or athletic stores.

 

Black Leather Loafers

Loafers have become a part of my everyday outfits. They instantly dress up an outfit and are perfect to throw on when you are rushing out the door. There are many inexpensive versions of this show but I would recommend investing money in a good pair of loafers. I have a pair of Steve Madden loafers that I am in love with and they are so durable.

Summer E-C-Ssentials

This summer, here are a few of my favorite E-C-Ssentials!

Click on the links below to shop!

Polaroid Camera: Polaroid cameras are perfect for capturing your greatest summer moments. They also are great to hang in your room or create a scrapbook to remember all of your summer memories!

Love Does: Summer is the perfect time to lay out and tan with a great book. Since summer has begun, I have not been able to put this book down. I highly recommend Love Does to anyone who is struggling to find a good summer read (For more information on the book, click the link for a summary).

Tassel Earrings: Tassel earrings are a huge trend this summer! These earrings are perfect for vacations or just a night out on the town. I personally love to wear my tassel earrings when I’m not in the mood to style my hair that day and decide to wear a simple updo.

Ray Ban Sunglasses: These Ray Bans have by far been one of my favorite pairs I have ever owned. The round sunglasses look is in this summer, and I love how these sunglasses combine the round look with the classic aviator style.

Scarf:  I have recently become obsessed with scarfs. What is great about scarfs is that there are endless ways to wear them. You can tie it on your purse, wear it around your neck, or even wear it as a headband.

Fedora Hat: The perfect hat is a necessity for summer. What I love about this hat is the simple, yet chic look. Whether you’re going to the beach, lounging by the pool, or even going shopping, a Fedora is a perfect hat for all occasions!
