High vs Low Quality: When To Spend.

Hello ladies! I decided to start off this Monday with something I’ve been sitting on for a while. What items should you splurge on and what items can you save on? That is the million dollar question. Who has the time and money to spend on discovering this out for themselves? Lucky for you, I did the research for you and I have the answers your looking for!

I have put together a list of items for “splurging” and a list of items for “saving”. I am all for the phrase “quality over quantity” and really think that if you have a few key splurge pieces, then you can get trendy save pieces each season and your closet will be classic and well suited to your style all year round! Ready to dive into this? Okay. Continue reading

Ankle Boots: 4 Ways to Wear Them.

First and foremost: I need to give a shoutout to two of my best friends, Jordan and Brooke, for standing outside with me and taking my picture and dressing up in outfits in the freezing cold and generally being two of the most perfect people in the entire world. Now that that is out of the way…

Ankle boots are like a hidden gem of the fashion world. Everyone knows about them. Everyone probably even owns a pair. But learning how to style them is a different matter. I had the most adorable pair of booties sitting in my closet for a solid year and I only wore them one way. Ripped jeans, oversized sweater…thats it. I mean it was TOTALLY cute. It really really was. But lemme tell you, that got old, fast. I got tired of wearing them like that so then I just stopped wearing them. Continue reading

Outfit of the Week: Wintertime Favorite.

My style during winter can be summed up in three words: cozy, comfortable, bright.

I always love picking out outfits for the wintertime (mainly because it is so much easier to dress modestly when you actively try to cover as much skin as possible due to the regular -15 degree weather). But ALSO I love being warm. I’m chronically freezing, no matter what time of year it is. So it makes sense that in the winter I am twice as cold as usual.

Wintertime means knit scarves, fun coats, bright colored boots….the options are endless. Today’s look is based around the new plaid blanket scarf my bff got me for my birthday (she knows me so well)! It is beautiful and exactly what everyone should own from November-February. The goal is to epitomize warmth, without sacrificing style. (The weather was about 16 degrees during this photo shoot so I can attest to this outfit being warm…) Continue reading
