What to wear to a early spring date

Your girlfriends or honeybun have invited you for lunch in the city new hottest spot. It’s only the beginning of spring and still cold outside, what do you wear? It certainly can’t be sweatpants and converse snickers or a swanky cocktail dress. Cool weather can be hard to dress for especially if you don’t want to look over or underdressed. I have just the look that will work for this occasion.

Chunky sweater and black pants

The easiest choice is a pair of black skinny pants, a cozy stylish sweater and heels. Why these three? First, black cropped skinny pants add a certain polished feel to an outfit, you can’t go wrong with them. A cozy stylish sweater provides warmth which is your number one goal and also makes you not look too overdressed. The heels don’t need an explanation, they give instant elegance and style to the look. If you are having a nice spring day, go for pointy toe heels. However if it is too cold outside, opt for some sleek knee high boots. Throw on some simple accessories like a chunky bracelet, a big faced watch, a hat and you are good to go.

What to wear to a winter date

Since it will still be chilly outside you will need a warm jacket. Fitted wool coats are my go to when I need to look dressed up or smart and casual. A down coat or hoodie would be too casual for this look. Another option is a stylish jacket like this leather jacket with faux fur lining that I am wearing. The point is too look smart but not over or underdressed.

Burgundy In The City

Boy its been a moment since my last style post, that can only mean it’s winter time. When it gets cold, venturing outside becomes a chore for me. All I want to do is stay indoors, watch Netflix and chill. We had a slightly decent winter day recently and I was very happy to head into the city to hang out. I had also been dying to wear this burgundy coat and hat that I got a while back.

Burgundy Coat

Burgundy is one of those colors that you just don’t seek when you are shopping. You hardly hear anybody say burgundy is their favorite color but I am here to let you know you can totally rock this color. Because of its deep, rich and powerful look, burgundy is more suited for cooler temperatures similar to brown and navy blue.

Burgundy goes well with black which is the color combination I chose for my outfit. You can certainly pair it with other colors like sky blue and gold. Pairing it with white works but will look too preppy and uniform-like.

3 Ways to Wear a Black Coat

Do you own a black coat? I feel like everyone owns at least one black coat or jacket. A black coat is a classic closet staple that can be worn different ways. You can wear it down or dress it up, its a must have! Today I am sharing some ways to wear it if you are running out of ideas.

Pair it with brown boots: Blue Jeans, Brown Knee-length Boots, Black Hat and a fun scarf: This look is somewhat dressy and is perfect for date night or even for work. The brown is a nice change from a black boot. Make sure your boots have a bit of heel of you really want to dress it up.

Wear it with a sweater dress: Depending on the length of your dress your coat can look great with a dress. Try to wear a dress that is shorter or the same length as your coat. Thick and warm leggings are perfect for this look in the winter. I wore flats here because we were having one of those unusually sunny days in the middle of winter.

Style diary: Winter white Long wool cardigan

I recently took a trip to Newport Rhode Island with my blogger bestie Kristin. A beautiful place like Newport meant we had a great canvas for our pictures which was a plus. Although it was a little cold we managed to make the most fun out of it. Staying fabulous in the cold is always tricky but I worked with what I got. First day in Newport I wore a red and black outfit and the next day I went with a winter white long wool cardigan with blue jeans, brown boots and a black hat.

The long wool cardigan is pretty much the star of this outfit although the other pieces like the boots and hat complete the look. I love wearing these kind of hats instead of the knitted hats as they are more stylish and add a touch of elegance. Brown boots always look great with blue jeans and I find them to be more versatile than black boots. The next time you are debating on what color to pick for a shoe, try brown or beige, you will get more outfit options with those colors.

More about the Long wool cardigan: This cardigan is from one of my new favorite stores Uniqlo. This cardigan is made from 100% wool so it makes for a great cold weather layer and I really love that the material is of great quality. The long length is very trendy and is best paired with slim pants or jeans. I have worn this cardigan with black skinny jeans, a black top with nude flats and it turned out very chic.

Where to find this cardigan: As we are drawing closer to spring cardigans like this are dissapearing from stores however Uniqlo still has some of the long wool cardigan‘s left in stock, this may not last long as their items are always in high demand.

Leather Jacket: The black leather jacket is by Victoria’s secret. I got it when they still had a clothing catalog which I don’t think they have anymore as they are focusing on intimates and sleepwear. You can however find more fabulous leather jackets from Wilsons Leather. They currently have a sale going on and jackets are half the price which you don’t want to miss.

Black Skinny Jeans: If you follow me on instagram you will notice that I have worn this pair of skinny jeans numerous times and its because they are just the best thing ever. These affordable Mid-Rise jeggings  are from Target and are a life saver.

Scarf:  I confess that this scarf actually belongs to my Fiancé and I thought it looked good with this outfit one morning when I could not find one of my own. The scarf is by Nautica and you can find similar ones for ladies here

Black Pumps: These black pumps are ones that I wear often. I own 3 of the same pair, each with their own unique. These pumps are by Nine West  and are currently on sale for $39.99
