Two wears to wear a plaid coat



I'm wearing: Forever 21 plaid coat (sold out) but I love this one and this one's color combo. HERE is a shorter version | REDONE jeans | Fila Ray sneakers | Banana republic graphic tee (sold out) - THIS ONE is pretty much the same - another one in black - love this one| Levi's mile high ankle skinny jeans (perfect lenght for petites)  | UNIQLO heattech fleece turtleneck top | Gucci belt | Shoeddazle boots 

I feel like I always say this but ... I've been looking for a red plaid coat for the longest time (more than a few years!) Last friendsgiving my friend Desi (who also has a pretty cool blog) showed up with this amazing coat and I knew right away I had to have it.  It is such an statement piece and the longer silhouette makes me look super tall. I'm only 5'2!! 

I've worn this coat a few times already, every time I've thrown it over simple outfits : Jeans + black or white t-shirt . These two outfits pretty much sums it all up.



 Outfit #1 
Black turteneck + over the knee boots

I pretty much live  on these heattech turtlenecks from UNIQLO during winter. They keep me warm and I feel they look super stylish tucked into high waisted jeans and paired with high heels. The jeans are Levi's mile high ankle skinny jeans. If you're petite you'll LOVE these they have the perfect lenght!.  The over the knee boots I'm wearing are from Shoedazzle, my favorite place to find the perfect heels & boots. I'm in love with their spring shoe collection and I can't wait until winter is over to get a few pairs of pretty sandals from their website!






Outfit #2 
graphic t-shirt + chunky sneakers

On a regular day I don't wear 5in heels, so if we ever bump to each other on the streets chances are I'm going to be wearing something more similar to this outfit. You can never go wrong with a basic white shirt and high waisted jeans. To make this outfit more casual and perfect for running errands , comfy shoes are a must. Lately I'm obsessed with chunky or platform sneakers. The ones I'm wearing are the FILA Ray and I have them in white too. 





4 ways to wear black leather leggings


I'm wearing : Forever 21 Leather leggings | Nike Tanjun sneakers | Forever 21 sweater dress | Belt bag - similar - similar - | Rebecca minkoff hudson moto crossbody | OTK boots - similar - similar | Teddy coat - similar - similar

I wasn't lying when I said I'm obsessed with these (faux) leather leggings. It's so easy to style them up or down! Lately my favorite way to wear them is with long sweaters / sweatshirts and sneakers. But I think they also look really good with a tunic and over the knee boots for a dressier look, like I styled them on this post.

The over the knee boots effect

  I'm wearing: otk boots - similar -  similar - similarforever 21 leather leggings  | 

Something I've learn over the past few years is that a good pair of over the knee boots are your biggest ally during fall & winter. You can wear the most basic of the outfits  and pair your boots with it, and bam! you go from casual to chic in seconds. That's what I call the over the knee boots efect. Here I'm wearing my latest obsession (this super comfy leather leggings) with a basic long sleeve tee, for extra girly points I just added the tassel earrings and a cute purse. I'm not huge on wearing leggings but lately I've been loving this leather leggings + OTK boots so much!

What are some of your must haves for winter?

What to wear to valentines day

Valentine's day is just around the corner, and with it another excuse to buy a brand new outfit. I'm not saying you HAVE TO , but then again if you like to get a little something for an special ocassion then this post is for you.

Most of the stuff I picked up for this little roundoup are cute basic pieces, that work perfect for a Valentine's date but that can also be worn all year long. Like always versatility is key ... best part everything is under $50!!

CLICK ON EACH IMAGE TO SHOP MY FAVORITES FOR VALENTINE'S



Camisoles with a lace overlay are my favorite. They're so easy to dress up or down and really versatile too. Loved this one in velvet that also comes in black! If velvet is not your thing, then check THIS ONE. It comes in regular & petite sizes and a bunch of colors.





I recently got a velvet blazer and I've worn more than a few times. Found this very similar in black and I think it's perfect to go on a date. You can wear it over a simple camisole or a fitted dress and pair it with pointed toe heels!









A lace dress is definitely a must in every wardrobe, and the perfect option for a date night. This one also comes in black. I love the sleeves on this one







For all of you that prefer to stay cozy , this sweater screams Valentine's day. The color is perfect and the lace up detail with the bow makes it darling.





Chenille sweaters are not the cheapest but they sure are the softest. A blush or beige one is versatile and makes a great transitional piece.





LAST sweater I promise. I thought I'll add a black sweater for those of you that don't wear colorful clothes (like me). I think a black fuzzy sweaters it's a little bit more "Festive" and paired with a red lippie would be perfect for a Valentine's date.




THIS TOP IS ONLY $15 and it's really versatile. I'd totally wear it to the office as well.




A wrap dress is flattering for every type of body. This one is perfect for those of you that live in a colder climate because is knit and it will keep you warm. I love the midi lenght because it also makes it more conservative and you'll be able to wear it to the office too.




I feel like a bodycon dress is a safe bet for almost every ocassion. This one can be work with OTK boots, or tights if it's cold. Or simple pair it with pumps for a classic look.


Talking about pointed toe heels. I love stilettos as much as everyone else, but I think a block heel pointed toe heel is much more confortable and you'll probably wear it more over time. I love this DKNY pair because it comes in three different colors including red!


Another great pointed toe shoe option are ankle boots. I love these ones!

Th Softest Teddy Coat



teddy-coat-winter-outfit

I'm wearing: teddy coat - similar but in pink -  |  otk boots - similar -  similar similar   |  forever 21 leather leggings  | forever 21 sweater dress

I posted this outfit on instagram the other day and everyone was asking about this  coat.  This is the exact teddy coat  I'm wearing, but sadly it's not available online on the same color. Last time I went to Forever21 I found a few available in this camel color, so I'd take a trip to the store and look for it. It is seriously one of the best purchases EVER! It is really soft and cozy and I love that I almost feel I'm walking around wrapped in a blanket. I think it is a must have piece for your "dressy" winter outfits. I love to throw it over an all-black outfit, or over a LBD + OTK boots for a girls night out outfit.

What do you think about the teddy coats trends? yay or nay?

Puse este outfit en instagram hace poco y todos me preguntaron muchisimo sobre el abrigo. Lo busque muchisimo en el website pero me parece que nunca lo tuvieron ahi en este mismo color, sin embargo este es exactamente el mismo pero en rosa Clarito . La ultima vez que me fije en la tienda todavia lo tenian asi que yo les recomiendo darse una vuelta y si lo ven no duden en llevarselo. Fue una de las mejores compras que hice este invierno, es la cosa mas suavecita y calientita que casi siento como que ando caminando por ahi enrollada en un cobertor! Generalmente me gusta usarlo sobre un outfit completamente negro , o sobre un mini vestido negro con botas altas .

Que piensas de esta tendencia de los abrigos de "osito" ? Si o no?
