Crazy Color

I can not believe it's December. The Holidays are in full swing and my time has been spent looking for presents, and getting ready for all of the Holiday parties. For me when temps start to drop, I go to my tried and true all black ensembles. Black is my comfort blanket. Throw on a black sweater and pants and some booties and I am out the door. This Holiday, I'm making an effort to wear more color and I'm starting with a twist on one my favorite jeans: the boyfriend. 

I love the way boyfriend jeans fit on me. They are the perfect amount of slouch without looking sloppy. These paint splattered versions from Melissa McCarthy are fun and amazingly comfortable. I have been eyeing these for a while, and when the site was having a 40% off sale, I went for it and bought them. If you have not tried her jeans before I suggest them. I wear a size 16, and they hug where they need to and I have yet to deal with them stretching out. 

I wanted to keep the color going so I went with one of my favorite sweaters from the Gap. The Crazy Stripe sweater has been a favorite of mines since I was in high school and over the past couple of years they have brought them back in different variations. I have had this button neck one for a couple of years, but there is a new variation available with more of a metallic look which is super cute. Chunky knits and jeans are the perfect weekend look. It can be dressed down with sneakers to run errands or with booties to meet with the gals for brunch. 

With all my pops of colors, I went with some neutrals to tie in the rest of my look. This quilted coat from Melissa McCarthy has been a go to over the past couple of months for me. Oversized coats have been all over the runways for Fall, and this one has the right amount of volume without swallowing you whole. I wear a 20 in coats, and with this coat the 1X was perfect. I have room to layer underneath, and its quite warm. I finished off my look with my booties from Lane Bryant. I love the bow detailing and the wide width which makes them very comfortable. Well I am off to finish up my shopping. Enjoy lovers!!!

It's All In the Details

This season I have been all about wearing more of things that I always been on the fence about and just enjoying myself. Hat's are something that I always enjoyed from a distance. I would buy them and not wear them, or just forgo them all together. That all changed when I saw this hat. I love a good fedora, but this panama hat really caught my eye. I like panama's because you get the look of a fedora, but the brim is wider like a floppy just more structured. Since I am all about color, I went with red, but it does come in black and grey. 

My go to staple for fall is a turtleneck. When the temps drop, I love to throw one on with a skirt or underneath one of my favorite dresses. I was browsing Banana Republic, and I found this great striped one for $20! Striped tops are effortlessly chic and so Parisian. I'm wearing a XL, and it's pretty stretchy. I definitely want to get this top in more colors while the price is low for their F&F sale. 

Denim is a weakness of mines, so I am always up to try new brands or fits. My new favorite jeans are from Melissa McCarthy Seven7 collection. These are a fun update to the classic skinny jean. They have a seam down the middle and an ankle zip. These have 1% stretch and the rinse is a great color that goes with everything. The jeans are mid-rise and are definitely team thick thigh and big booty friendly. Great fit, perfect stretch without stretching out, and currently on sale- definite recommend!

As a full blown Eloquii addict, whenever they drop new collections, I'm all over it. When they dropped this moto earlier in the Fall, it was a must have. I love the flower detail, and the studs along the lapel. I must admit, this season I have found a good deal of great moto's that I have been wearing in rotation, and this is one of them. I like little details that gives a piece something different and extra. If you love moto's, give the Applique Moto a try. You will not be disappointed.

Do you have any favorites that has little details that just make it so much more special? Let me know in the comments. Muah!!
