Hey, guys! Happy Thursday! It’s been a hot minute since I did a fashion post, right?! Sorry about that. Life has been crazy since the holiday season, and I haven’t been feeling well. It’s been hard for me to work at all, but I’m doing my best! I did do some wellness posts the last two weeks, so if you haven’t yet, head on over to the wellness tab and check those out, too! But, today it’s all about the F-A-S-H-I-O-N! Valentine’s Day is right around the corner and if you’re looking for a cute outfit for your date or a Galentine’s girls night out, I got ya covered!

I put together several looks from things I have in my closet already, plus this gorgeous top by one of my favorite brands, Wayf! I am using some pics I took at home with my phone for this post because there are so many outifts. Sorry the quality isn’t as good as it usually is, but I couldn’t shoot all of these with the professional camera. I hope you don’t mind 🙂 Let’s get started!

First up of course, is this floral peasant top from Wayf that I am so in love with! You guys know I love a statement sleeve, and this one is so good! I love that it’s shorter sleeved so it will transition into spring and summer so well, too! The black background with the pop of pink is so pretty! I love black florals. The square neckline makes it even more unique and so flattering. I paired it with my favorite pair of Good American distressed black denim and some combat boots to make it a little edgier. I also would love it with faux leather pants or a skirt! It would look really cute with some high-waisted, wide leg pants, too. Wayf is one of my favorite brands, so if you haven’t heard of them, definitely check them out. They make so many cute things.

Next, is this vintage-inspired dress by House of Harlow. I love this dress! I got it last season, but they brought it back! Unfortunately it is sold out in this pink and red combo, but it’s available in all red, which is also perfect for your V-Day date! It’s a little pricey, though, so I’m linking some others that are similar but better price points.

I paired this dress with these white booties to top off the throw-back vibes! I love the cut of this dress. It reminds me of Megan from Mad Men! Getting lots of 60’s feels in this dress. I like that it is a mini dress but it’s not overly revealing. So many dresses now are short AND super low cut. I don’t like to feel overly exposed. But, showing a little pop of skin here or there still makes it flirty but not tacky. The length on this is nice. It definitely shows off some leg but isn’t too much! Ryan loves it, too, so that makes it even better 🙂

One of the perks of being a Revolve ambassador is that you get access to all of the new arrivals! This adorable little sweater just came in right as I was working on this post, so it was perfect timing! I love this sweater. It’s so cute! I love how it’s shaggy and so comfy, but the asymmetric neckline makes it super on trend. The color is so perfect for a romantic Valentine’s Day date. Your date won’t be able to not pet you in this, haha! It’s so soft.

I paired it with my favorite pair of Good American vintage denim. I love the mix of the pink with the faded, washed blue. I added my white pumps with this for a nice pop! I love these colors together. So fresh even in the dead of winter! This is a really sweet, casual look for your special night!

Next up is this top by LPA. I’m in love with this one! It’s such a fun blouse. It has a mock neck, smocked waist, and the back is open with a t

ie. I typically wear a black cami underneath and it still looks cute that way! I love the tiger print! Tiger is huge this season. It even has a tiny bit of pink in it, so it’s perfect for Valentine’s Day!

I paired this with a faux leather zip up skirt and some over-the-knee boots! I love it with a skirt, but it looks just as great with jeans or faux leather pants, too! Linking this look and some other options that are similar for you!

This next outfit is one of my favorites! I am obsessed with these pants! Cargo pants are back in a big way. I found these faux leather ones that fit like a dream at ASOS. They are so comfortable, but deliver some serious style! You can wear them with so much! It would look great with a tee for a casual look, a bodysuit, or blouse for a night out. I have them paired with a balloon sleeve, red sweater here. The balloon sleeve sweater is going strong! I love it.

I paired these with some leopard booties or some black pumps! I think either works well! This is a really cute, comfortable, but still dressed up look for your date night!

I’ve shown you guys this super cute BB Dakota top before, but it’s a perfect time to bring it back again because it’s the prettiest dark, mauve pink color for V-Day! I love the cut of this top. It’s so flattering and unique. The sleeves are so pretty and flowy and the back has a tiny little key-hole and tie to make it more interesting. Love the details! It’s so soft. It’s a velvet material with ribbed texture.

I paired it with some distressed black denim and Dr. Martens combat boots to edge it up a bit! It’s a perfect casual outfit for a more chill date. I love the touch the boots give this look, but you could totally do some heels if that’s more your style!

Next up is this pink dress by Finders Keepers! I love this dress! It was such a huge seller this season. It sold out multiple times on Revolve. It was hard to get my hands on, but I eventually did! I wore this out for Ryan’s birthday this year. It’s such a fun one! The color is so gorgeous! I love the mock neck. This cut is so popular right now. It has a drawn in waist and cinched thigh.

I paired it with these Steve Madden Kinga boots! These were one of the best purchases I made this fall/winter season. I wear them SO MUCH! They go with so many outfits and give them such a fun touch. I would highly recommend grabbing these, especially because they’re on sale in several places for next to nothing. They won’t last long! You can screenshot the lowest sale price and email it to the other companies if your size is not in stock at the lowest priced store. They will usually match it for you. Linking this dress and some others that are similar.

Finally, I have this top by Majorelle that I’m so in love with! I got this last year, too, but they brought it back again! Unfortunately, it’s almost sold out 🙁 But, they made it in the prettiest lavender color and it’s fully stocked! I love the ruching and piping detail on this top! The off the shoulder is just the right amount of skin. It’s just too cute.

I paired it with distressed denim and heels for a dressier look. You could totally rock some combat boots with this one, too, though! I’ve linked it below and some similar options.

Before I go, I wanted to share these Valentine’s Day inspired accessories! Hearts are really big right now in jewelry and handbags, so why not add a little love to your accessories, too?! 🙂

Don’t forget, you can also watch the video try-on version of these outfits in my Instagram story!

Alright guys! That’s it for my Valentine’s Day looks! I hope that you found something that inspires your look for V-Day. Which is your favorite? Leave me a comment below and have a fabulous rest of your week! 💖

XOXO,

Kelly

Happy Weekend, babes! You made it! I can’t even believe we are this close to Christmas. Always so much to do, so little time! I’m hoping that this post helps you with your holiday dress shopping, though! Whether it’s for a Christmas party or New Year’s Eve, I have a ton of options for your festive bash! Let’s get started.

$100 & Under:

Most of the dresses in this category are actually well under $100! I found some cute jumpsuits, too. If something seems too simple for your taste, remember, you can always spice it up with some fun accessories like belts, jewelry, shoes, and a fun bag. Here are some of my affordable favorites!

$200 & Under:

There are some really amazing dresses that could pass for designers ones in this category! I love details, so anything with extra sparkle, buttons, or an exciting cut, hooks me right away! Lots of unique ones in this category. I’m loving all of these colors!

Over $200:

Maybe you’re going to a really special event this year and you want to treat yourself to a really amazing dress! If so, here are some of my favorites. Why do I love expensive things?! UGH. I think it’s because I pay very close attention to detail and am an artist myself, so I really get into the design work of the brands and designers that take things to the next level. Dangit!! Haha, it’s a problem for me, LOL!

I’m really loving the asymmetric neck and hemlines on these dresses! So fun. Plus, one of your arms gets to be warm, haha! Here are some of my luxurious favorites:

Since you’ll be getting fancy this season, you’ll want to have the accessories to match, right?! I’ve rounded up some of the cutest bags and jewelry I’ve seen lately to go perfectly with your festive ‘fits!

Hope you found something you love here today or at least a bit of inspiration 🙂 As always, thank you so much for shopping through my links. I get a very small commission from it, but appreciate every little bit as it helps me to keep this blog going. I am so grateful for your support! Wishing you and yours a very happy holiday season!

XOXO,

Kelly

Happy Monday! It’s November now. First blog post of the month. I love November because it’s my husband’s birthday month and I love to celebrate and spoil him! Also, Thanksgiving, of course. Even though I eat a Paleo diet, I still can enjoy sooo many delicious seasonal things at Thanksgiving (check out my post on how to stick to your diet through the holidays here), so I get very excited for that and of course spending time with family and friends. We will be home for Thanksgiving and sharing it with my immediate family and Ryan’s mother who is battling pancreatic cancer. She was diagnosed just a couple of months ago and has been so bravely fighting since. She is in a clinical trial at The Hillman Cancer Center at the University of Pittsburgh Medical Center. So far she has had several chemo rounds and is very wiped out from it. She has a scan coming up in a few weeks and we will find out whether or not she is responding to the chemo. Fingers crossed she is and she can continue in the trial and beat it! If you think of it, send her some healing vibes, prayers, and positivity! She is a lady with a grateful heart and we all want to see her win this battle!

Back to fashion now… I was so lucky to be able to work with the brand BB Dakota recently! I have loved BB Dakota for years. I first found them at a couple of my favorite stores, but then realized they have their own website full of all of their styles and often times it’s more fully stocked than other stores that carry their clothing. They sell out fast because they are such cute designs and very high quality, but also still in that affordable range. That’s my sweet spot! Exactly why I love their brand so much.

One of the stand-out categories of BB Dakota’s brand is their outerwear. They always kill the jacket and coat game every single year! Since we are officially into fall and it’s getting pretty chilly out, I wanted to share a bunch of their cute jackets you can find at their store right now.

As you guys know, I love me some animal print – especially this season’s top top two trends – tiger and snakeskin! (Did you see my post on tiger being the new leopard?? Check it out here!) This jacket I’m wearing in today’s post is a faux fur tiger bomber. I died when I saw it. It’s the cutest jacket ever! I love the stripe details on the sleeves and bottom. It just adds the perfect touch of edge and sportiness!

If you’re anything like me, you love some good neutral staples, and this jacket goes so well with all of your basic pieces in your closet. But, when you add this jacket over top, you are anything but basic! Instant fashionista status.

This is just one of the adorable jackets they have right now! I also go the faux fur snakeskin jacket, which I’m equally obsessing over and the red and black plaid moto jacket. But, they have so many other cute ones that I will link here for you. Be sure to check out their clothing and their new line of lounge wear, too! I’m in love!

Which are your favorites? Leave me a comment below! Have a fabulous week, friends! 🙂

Hey, friends!! I hope you had a great weekend! It was very dreary here. But, I am loving the colors of fall and all of the beauty PA has to offer. The temps are dropping, too, so now’s the time to bring out your coats or look for new ones!

Faux fur is still so big this season and I’m not mad about it! I love the coziness and how soft they are, without hurting any animals. I found this one through Lulu’s and let me tell you, it is a keeper! I’m so impressed with the quality. It’s kind of shocking! It feels so much like real rabbit fur.

The inside is lined, which is really nice. I also love the long pelts. It’s designed just like a real fur coat would be. It’s not too heavy either, just the right amount of warmth for fall and early winter.

I would totally wear this with jeans as well as dressier outfits. You don’t have to be dressed super glamorously to pull this coat off. It would look just as nice with jeans and combat boots as it does with dresses and dress pants.

I love an all-white look! It’s so chic and classy. So, I paired my off-white pants from Express with this coat and a lace top from Wayf. I topped it off with nude pumps and this faux Gucci bag I found on Amazon. If you didn’t see my designer dupes from Amazon post I did last week, check it out here.

This beautiful coat was gifted to me from Lulu’s and you can purchase it directly here. It comes in a few other colors that are nice, too!

I’ve also linked this outfit in case anyone is interested in it. These pants are on sale right now. I am wearing the petite size and they are the perfect length. I am 5’3 and they’re still long enough for me to wear high heels and not look too short.

Thanks for reading guys! Have a wonderful day!

Hey guys! I hope you’re having a wonderful day! I wanted to share some really fun items I found recently on Amazon. Everyone loves designer bags, jewelry, and other accessories. But, we can’t always afford them. Luckily, there are some really amazing dupes on Amazon right now and they’re way too good to pass up. I am all for splurging on a designer bag when you’re looking to treat yourself. I would never want to take away from the amazing work that these design houses do. But, their prices aren’t exactly affordable for all and often you wouldn’t be buying them anyway, so I’m going to share some of my favorite look-a-likes! Some of these are so good people would never even know!

Let’s start with jewelry! These knock-offs are pretty darn good if you ask me! Only if someone looked extremely closely could they tell that they’re not the real deal. I personally have these Gucci-wanna-be pearl drop earrings and the LV dupe charm bracelet, and I LOVE them both! They look so cute and very much like their expensive counterparts! I’ve linked some other nice options, too! I’m loving these LV studs and the Cartier look-a-like bangles.

Next up are other accessories, like scarves, wallets, and even doggy harnesses! A little bit of a designer touch can really make an outfit! I love these hair accessories that resemble Gucci and Hermes! The all black LV scarf is so nice too because it’s dark and anything black always looks more legit and expensive. How cute are the air pod cases, too?!

Finally, what you all are probably here for, are the HANDBAGS! YESSSS. These are SO GOOD. I love the Chloe look-a-likes! I’m wearing the bracelet bag one here. Unfortunately, I did not realize when taking these photos that the gold ring was flipped over so you can’t even see it! So sorry! It’s so pretty though when it’s showing. I also just got the tan one with the gold chain I linked below. It is so nice (real leather) and looks so much like the original. People stop and tell me they love my Chloe all the time. I always tell them where I got it. I would never lie about it. It’s fun to share my finds! I have a real Chloe bracelet bag and it’s honestly hard to tell the difference between the one I linked here and the real deal. Here you’ll find bags that look so much like Louis Vuitton, Chloe, Gucci, Hermes, Prada, Valentino, Christian Dior, and more!

Which are your favorites?! I would love to hear! Let me know what you think in the comments 🙂 I’m also linking this outfit in case you’re interested in it, too! These over-the-knee boots are so nice! I have them in all three colors because I love them so much. They have great stretch, but they also stay up so well on my legs. I have really petite, little legs and they work very well for me. I also know that girls say that they are stretchy and fit nicely for curvier legs, too. Use Code PREFALL for 20% off of them! Have a fabulous week, friends!

Happy Sunday Funday, friends! I hope you have had a great weekend! We went to a fall dinner party with friends last night and it was so much fun! We ate all of the fall harvest foods like butternut squash, brussel sprouts, sweet potatoes, apple salad, and pears for dessert! It was delicious and I’m so thankful to have nice friends who do fun things like that. 🙂

Today’s blog post is all about TIGER print! I am obsessed with it! I can’t get enough animal print lately, and I’m so happy to add this one to my closet! At first I wasn’t sure, but now I’m all here for it. Tiger is the new leopard, friends! Get on board! 🙂

I’ve been seeing tiger print everywhere! Handbags, shoes, belts, and clothing! All of the big designers are featuring so many cute tiger pieces! I linked a Gucci bag I love below and some others at more reasonable prices. If Gucci is doing it, this trend is here to stay for a while.

I love this sweater from Express. It is part of the Negin Mirsalehi collection she did with Express. Negin is a major fashion influencer and I have a huge crush on her and her style. So, I was so happy to see this collection. There are a couple different tiger pieces in it.

This sweater is so easy to style. I went for a casual look with jeans from Good American (one of my favorites, as you know!). But, you could easily pair it with pants for work, or a mini or midi skirt for going out, too! It’s so soft, not itchy at all, and has a nice stretch to it. I’m wearing the XS just for size reference.

I’ve linked a bunch of my favorite tiger print pieces for you below! What do you think of this trend? Have you caught the tiger fever yet? Let me know in the comments below!

Happy Monday, friends! Hope you had a great weekend! The weather changed here in PA, and we are in full fall mode! We spent our weekend taking it easy for once, but now it’s full speed ahead for an insanely busy week! We are headed to Nemacolin tomorrow for an event called “Fat Bird Food Fight”! All of the chefs compete against each other! Should be very fun. I’m excited to eat all of their delicious food 🙂

Today’s post is all about shirt dresses! I am loving this trend for fall and winter! It’s a great casual way to wear a dress. It doesn’t have to be fancy. It is definitely office approved (assuming the slits aren’t too high and the wind isn’t blowing your skirt up, LOL) and looks so chic for going out, too! It also works for weekend brunches or dinners! Very versatile, and you guys know I love a good piece you can wear everywhere!

I found this adorable snakeskin shirt dress at Shopbop.com. It sold out so fast! There are a couple left now at Nordstrom, so if you are interested in it, I’d act fast! These shirt dresses, especially the snakeskin ones, are super popular right now and everyone wants to get their hands on one!

I paired mine with my favorite new pair of Steve Madden slouchy snakeskin boots! I love this look! The slit in the skirt of the dress really shows off your shoes, so it’s a perfect opportunity to rock your favorite fall boots! It looks classy and elegant, but so on trend. If you’re looking for new boots, check out my post on Fall 2019 Boot Trends. I have tons of the most popular options linked there for you!

You could easily throw a cardigan or little moto jacket over this dress for extra warmth come the winter months. I like a cardigan with it, topped off with a chic belt!

I’ve linked some of my favorite shirt dresses for you below! What do you guys think of this trend? Will you try it? Leave me a comment below! 🙂 Also, if you like this post, be sure to check out my recent post on Fall Maxi Dresses here.

Hey, guys! Hope you’re having a good week so far! It’s been soooo hot here in PA it’s insane. I saw a meme that said “Hope you’re having a great July 71st!” No joke! I’m ready for it to cool down a little. The leaves have still turned and are dropping though, so at least it looks like fall if nothing else 🙂

One of my favorite trends for fall this season is the long sleeve maxi dress! I love wearing dresses because they’re more comfortable and I like to be dressed up and look nice. Why not? 🙂 I usually get a bit disappointed when cooler weather comes around because I typically go back to wearing jeans. But, I’m loving these maxis for colder weather! It’ so easy to wear and works for work or pleasure!

I found this C/MEO Collective maxi dress at Shopbop.com during their sale a few weeks ago. It has since gone on sale even more at other stores! YAY! If you find it in your size at one of the stores where it’s not on sale, you can usually send them a screen shot of it on sale elsewhere and they will match it for you. I have no idea why ASOS has it listed for $316?! It was never that high to begin with anywhere, so that’s pretty puzzling. But, you can contact customer service and hopefully they would help you out!

I LOVE the colors and pattern of this dress! It screams fall romance! It’s cheetah maybe? Haha, I think it is a cheetah print. I’m seeing so many animal prints lately that they’re all starting to look the same! But, I really do love this one. It’s classy and sexy at the same time! The cut is also stunning! I love the plunging neckline and the buttons down the front. It has a lining to the knees and is sheer from the knees down with a pretty little slit and flowing skirt. Can we talk about these sleeves?! So gorgeous. I’m in love with the balloon sleeve. It’s such a statement and makes this dress look so high fashion! It really does look more expensive than it is.

I paired this with some strappy square toe shoes from ASOS that I got this summer. However, when it does get cooler, this dress would look amazing with some black boots! I love it with over-the-knee or slouchy boots (see the dresses in the widget below – a lot are modeled this way). Slouchy boots are really in this season. Check out my post on Fall 2019 Boot Trends here. You can also rock this with some booties! A suede or faux suede would be so cute!

Maxi dresses are great for colder weather because you get the extra coverage, and you can wear tall boots with them, so you won’t freeze like I typically do in mini dresses. I love this look paired with a leather moto jacket over top, or a cardigan sweater, too. It’s versatile and can be worn for lots of different occasions.

I’ve linked a bunch of my favorites at reasonable prices for you below! What do you think of this trend? Let me know in the comments. Hope you have a great weekend 🙂

Happy Monday, babes! Hope you had a great weekend! I don’t know about you, but i am WIPED out after the weekend. I need a weekend after that weekend, haha. I didn’t do anything crazy, I just worked a lot and am exhausted from it. I haven’t been feeling well for a few weeks and the stress just takes a toll, you know? Gotta rest up this week and try to get to a better place. I hope you’re feeling well or giving yourself rest, too.

I wanted to share this fun jumpsuit trend with you today! I don’t know about you guys, but I’m loving the puffy, 80’s sleeves! We saw this trend all over the major fashion house runways and I’m loving that its made its way to more affordable brands!

I found this jumpsuit by L’Academie at Revolve. I love this brand! They always have such unique pieces that stand out and are so much fun to wear! This jumpsuit is no exception.

The color of this jumpsuit is so bold, just like it’s cut! I love this for fall and winter. It will work so well during the holidays, too! The fabric is so silky and it’s really comfortable!

I paired this with a belt with chain link detail from Asos. I love the mix of femininity and edginess! It makes for such a strong look! No one will mess with you in this outfit, LOL! I also chose my favorite Sam Edelman heels and Chanel bag. Royal blue always looks so great with black! Classic combo in a fresh and trendy style.

I’ve linked some other similar jumpsuits for you! I included some of the designer ones just so you can see them, but there’s lots of affordable options, too! Hope you guys have an awesome week! 🙂

Hey, guys! Happy Saturday! Hope your weekend is off to a great start! We are headed out tonight to see a comedian. We love going to comedy shows! It’s always a great way to let loose and laugh a little and who doesn’t need that in their life?!

Before I go, I wanted to share some of my favorite fall sweaters with you! The weather hasn’t quite turned yet here in PA, but I can sense it’s coming soon. I like to be ready with some cute new sweaters in my closet.

This sweater is from Lucca! I got to do a collaboration with them and pick out things that I liked, and this was on the top of my list! I love how laid back it is. The cropped, raw hem is still really in style. It looks so great with jeans or a midi skirt!

Some other trends in sweaters I’m loving lately are the puffy sleeve, square neck, animal print, cut out designs, and of course pom pom sweaters! There are lots of cuts and styles of these trends to choose from. I love cropped sweaters because I am such a huge fan of the high waisted denim and it’s a fun, youthful, trendy look for fall!

Check out my my picks from some of my favorite brands! What’s your favorite sweater trend happening lately? Let me know in the comments below! 🙂 Have an awesome weekend!
