Cozy Cardi, Three Ways!

It’s been awhile since I styled one piece three ways on the blog, so on today's blog I thought I’d share how I styled one of my favorite winter layering pieces, the cozy cardi! I have several longer length cardi's in all colors and styles. For the cold weather months my go to is my chunky knit cardi’s. They keep you warm and it pairs easily with many items in my closet. During the cold weather months I’m all about keeping it easy and warm and the three looks I’ve created do just that. I know every girl out there has her favorite knit cardi and I hope my blog post today inspires you when styling this basic winter piece!
For this post I chose my chunky dark green cardi. I have different shades of black, tan, and grey cardi's, so this is my attempt at adding a little color to my look! This color is currently sold out but I linked the exact same one offered in three other colors and I've found one in a similar color just in case you were craving the dark green!
My Cardi: Old Navy
Similar One: Kohl's

Look One: Everyday Style

Tee (Gap), Denim (Old Navy), Boots (DSW)

For my job as a visual merchandiser I have a lot of early morning wake up calls and I’m all about keeping it simple with a t-shirt and jeans. Now that winter weather is here it's all about layering and that's where I’ve added my favorite cardi into the mix, to add some color and of course warmth!

Look Two: Baby/Wedding Shower Ready

Dress (H&M: sold out but found the same dress in black) Boots (Target)

As I get older it seems like everyone is either getting married or having a baby and there is always a party to go to. I love to get a little fancy for these events but I like to stay warm as well. By styling my green cardi with my favorite floral dress I’m able to achieve just that and look great at the same time!
This look would also be great with some tights and a cute pair of flats for a business casual office look too!

Look Three: Casual Drinks with Friends

Cami (Loft: Sold Out but found a similar one) Boots (Target) Scarf (Fetch & Co.: my favorite local boutique but if your not from the CLE here is a similar one from Amazon)

Now that I’m a mama, I basically live in sweats, so I love to get dressed up even if I'm meeting for a cozy cocktail hour with one of my friends. Pairing my cardi with my faux leather leggings and a shear tank is an easy and comfortable girls night out look!

My Top Boot Picks for Winter!

The holidays are over but unfortunately not the cold weather. In the CLE, winter is just getting started and every year I find myself looking for a great pair of boots to add to my collection to not only keep my feet warm but fashionable as well! This time of year is one of my favorite times to shop for boots because most of them you can get for a good price. In the retail world they are switching gears to prepare you for spring, but for those of us who are still stuck in the cold we can score some really great deals on winter apparel! On today’s blog I’m sharing some of my favorite boots for this cold weather season to inspire you on your quest for great cold weather footwear!

Outfit Details: Coat (Old Navy) Scarf (Old Navy: currently Sold Out, Similar one found on Amazon)
Leggings (Nordsrom) Boots(Sorel, from last season but linked a similar pair I'm loving now!)

When shopping for boots I’m usually looking for one of two categories. For a lot of my everyday looks and night’s out I want a good selection of fashionable and fun boots that add the perfect pop to my look. The other category is functionality. We get some pretty heavy snow storms or wet and icy days in Cleveland and it's good to have a selection of boots that will keep me dry and warm on my outdoor adventures. Whichever category you are on the hunt for this cold weather season I've helped you out and shared some of my top pics below, make sure to click on the item to shop!

Ringing in the New Year with Style!

The New Year is right around the corner and I, like many, find myself preparing for a New Years Eve bash. But let's be real, now that I’m older, and have a kid, my NYE has toned down quite a bit. That's not to say I don’t like to get a little fancy to ring in the new year. On today's blog I wanted to share my functional yet fancy NYE look to hopefully inspire you. If you are a new mama like me and you are looking for something more functional there is always room to dress up and feel your best!
