Styling A Sweater Dress

How To Style A Sweater DressI’ve been gravitating toward more dresses and skirts lately because I’m getting overly excited for spring (aren’t we all?!) – and in an effort not to freeze, I’ve been pairing them with over the knee boots. I still kind of freeze, but it’s better than nothing! This is an old sweater dress I’ve had for years, TBH it’s getting a bit short on me, but I just can’t part ways with it (yet!) I love a good sweater dress towards the end of winter when I’m tired of wearing jeans/pants. Some of my current favorites are…this one from Topshop (on sale for $45), this one from DVF (also on sale and so elegant), and this one (love the color.) Over The Knee BootsEveryone needs a pair of boots that make them feel fierce the second they slip them on. You know that feeling I’m talking about…. Boots that make you stand a little taller, walk a little faster, and have that extra pep in your step. These grey suede over the knee boots do just that for me. I could be wearing a simple all black outfit, and then slip these on and I instantly look chicer. They’re one of my favorite date night/going out shoes and hold many fun memories for me. Plus they’re warm which is a must in the winter here! A few other grey boots I’m loving; these, these and these. Spring Transition DressesOk let’s get back to talking about SPRING! WARM WEATHER!!!! It’s starting to heat up in many parts of the country – especially the west coast and I wanted to share a few of my favorite spring transition dresses here. This sweetheart neckline dress is so feminine, the deep blush color of this dress is gorgeous, this one is realllllly elegant, and this one is fun + sassy if you want to show off your legs!

Outside the Louvre

Thomas and I celebrated my birthday in Paris last month and it was truly special to be there around Christmas. December in Paris really is next level…there are lights everywhere, every store front is decorated to the nines, and you can just feel the Christmas cheer/excitement. I would 100% recommend visiting Paris in December – it’s so festive and romantic! We stayed warm by popping in and out of cute cafes, bakeries, hotel lobbies, and museums. We ate at Hotel Costes (my favorite spot in Paris), about 3 times haha. I could not resist the mushroom pasta and the martinis! Oh and their bread and butter is TO DIE FOR. Despite visiting Paris several times, I’m embarrassed to admit I had never been to the Louvre museum! The lines always scared me away. Thomas insisted that we go, and I am SO glad that he did – it was magnificent. And best of all, if you buy tickets in advance, you can go through a special line and skip the madness! I wore this gorgeous faux fur coat with my favorite Wolford turtleneck bodysuit for the day. I paired it with a vintage scarf (also love this one and this one) I picked up at a consignment store years ago and couldn’t decide whether or not I liked it on for the pictures LOL. Which look do you prefer – with or without?! Be sure to check my Paris Travel App and City Guides for more of my go-to spots!

Shopbop has a great selection of Chanel bags and jewelry! I have this phone case and LOVE it. So chic and I always get compliments on it. This Charlotte Tilbury eye palette has such gorgeous warm colors, I’d love to start experimenting with more oranges and pinks on my eyes. Can you believe this tortoise vase is under $30? It comes in several other shapes. Dark chocolate sea salt caramels? YES PLEASE. The Hanky Panky low rise thongs are my FAVES – and this Valentine’s themed set is so cute.

Shades of Grey

I love a monochromatic outfit anytime of year, but especially in the winter when you can layer layer layer! We need all the layers we can get on the East coast right now because it’s been freeeeezing. My secret to staying warm in the winter is a combination of things, but involves one common factor; cashmere. How To Stay Warm In The WinterCashmere is my secret weapon to combatting the cold. It’s something that is SO worth investing in during the winter. Whether it be a cashmere scarf, a cashmere hat, a cashmere sweater, or a cashmere coat – trust me, you’ll be so glad you splurged. Cashmere is such a high-quality material and really keeps you warm. Some of my favorite cashmere pieces are from White + Warren. I own several of their hats and scarves, and am so impressed at how thick and cozy everything is! I also LOVE Vince’s cashmere sweaters – I own about 7 of them in various colors and they’ve lasted for years. Best Cashmere SweatersIn addition to Vince cashmere sweaters, White + Warren also makes great cashmeres sweaters, as does Intermix and Nordstrom. This cream v-neck Nordstrom Signature sweater is one that I’ve been reaching for all winter long because it’s the perfect length and cut. And this one is a steal for under $50! I bought this Intermix cropped sweater in 3 colors – and love it tucked into pencil skirts and high waisted pants.
