Silks and Knits

So far, 2019 has been all about the neutral tones; camel, cream, tan and of course, my favorite neutral toned pattern…leopard. I love mixing and matching a variety of fabrics and textures. This super soft oversized cable knit sweater is the perfect compliment to this sleek animal print skirt! When I saw this skirt online, it was styled out with a black body suit and looked ideal for a night out on the town. Although I loved the look, I wanted to style out this skirt so it would have more of a friendly everyday vibe. Mission accomplished!

Pairing a skirt with an oversized (and untucked) sweater with a relaxed suede boot did the trick. It may be cold outside but that doesn’t mean you have to dress like the abominable snowman everyday haha! Keep it feminine and sleek while staying warm in this perfect mid-week outfit. It’s the perfect pick me up!

5 Face Washes for the New Year

I’m sorry if I sound like a broken record but I feel as though I am always writing about my beauty stories but trust me, I have so many of them! This post is about my face wash! I had been using Purpose soap from the drugstore since high school (a long AF time) up until about 6-months ago. My facialist, Satiko, told me that it was time to switch up my routine and start using a face wash for “maturing” (aka old) skin.

Calling for New Cardigans

I am a cardigan lady at heart! A comfy (and chic) cardigan in the winter is the ideal layering piece! Wrap yourself up in one when you are chilled at home, layer one under your coat to head out for the day, the options are endless. This year I have updated my “plain ole”¬†cardigans with new and improved fun prints. This camo cardigan is one of my latest finds but here are some more of my favorite picks of the season:

Cozy Sweatsuits You Can’t Live Without this Winter!

It’s winter time! Grab a cup of cocoa, throw on your favorite sweatsuit and cozy up by the fire! I like to call these outfits my “cozies”. Everyone should own at least one “cozy” sweatsuit but if you’re anything like me, you should have 3-pairs: one to wear around the house, one for travel and one for working out! I am wearing my favorite “around the house” outfit by Eberjay in this picture but here are my top picks in the sweatsuit category:
