Outfit REMIX












Christy's Crown Collection Ella Hat, J. Crew Knit Infinity Scarf (similar here), Sheinside Buffalo Check Coat, H&M Striped Knit Crop Sweater (similar here), Project Social T Line Me Up Tunic Top (similar here), Express Moto Scuba Leggings (similar here), Modern Vice Vintage Jett Booties (similar here), Emilie Shapiro Astral Travel Ring, Emilie Shapiro Rough Emerald Mosaic Pendant Necklace, Treisi Large Druzy Pendant (similar here)

After splurging on my loved ones (and a little bit on myself) during the holiday season, I'm trying my best to behave when it comes to my personal spendings. I'm on mission to work with what I've got until my closet purging raid is over. With that said, I've found myself getting a bit more creative with my wardrobe. I remixed outfits 1. ,  2. , 3.  from previous blog posts & came up with this look! Can you tell I love layering? Give me a cozy knit atop a slouchy tee, a statement coat, add on the perfect hat & I'm one happy gal. :) I'm itching for Spring to arrive, but I must admit...my favorite seasons to dress for are Fall & Winter and I have a coat collection to prove it!

It's amazing what one can accomplish mixing & matching items you already have in your closet!  Let your imagination run wild and have fun with it! Most of my favorite outfits were put together on a whim! 

Which of the 4 looks is your favorite?

The Importance of a Great Hat (According to Me)














Worth & Worth Bolero, Sheinside Camel Contrast Coat, J.Crew Knit Infinity Scarf (similar here) Olivaceous Sheer Polka Dot Button Up (similar here), Elkin Rosemary Dress, Tabbisocks Merlot Opaque Zokki Tights, Zara Platform Blucher Shoes, Kate Spade Saturday A Satchel

In case you haven't noticed, I'm a self-proclaimed #hataddict. 

My love for hats began about a year ago & I don't think it's going anywhere anytime soon. 
Ok, let's be honest here--it ain't goin' nowhere! ;P It all began with me lusting after this pretty rag & bone Floppy Brim Fedora, which led me to purchase the more wallet friendly Clipperton Fedora from Free People, which then snowballed into a bit of an addiction and here I am 10 hats later!
...and two more on order...

I'm going to admit something I know I'm going to regret, but here it is people: I feel pretty darn uncool when I'm not wearing a hat. What began as an experiment has now blossomed into a full blown addiction and has become a large part of my current identity. When I'm wearing a great hat, I honestly feel more confident and makes me feel as though I can conquer the world (this post is getting more and more humiliating by the minute!) Not to mention how they completely take your ensemble up a notch. Think about it. My outfit would be far less exciting without this gorgeous handmade in NYC Worth & Worth topper, right?! This Bolero is one of my favorites that I currently own. Made of 100% fur felt and custom fit for this hat-crazed lady's head, this beauty keeps my head super warm during these increasingly chilly NYC days & sits perfectly atop my head throughout the windiest of days. I couldn't have been more happy with the outcome!

I'll have you know the only thing I asked for this past Christmas was a Worth & Worth hat. Not only did Santa deem me fit for such a wonderful gift, but I was such a good girl last year that he granted me two W&W wonders! So, prepare yourselves my faithful readers! You'll be seeing a lot of hats in
my outfit posts! #SorryImNotSorry

HAPPY 2015, MY LOVES!


2014 was a year of immense personal growth for me. 

I made some major life altering decisions that were most certainly difficult, yet absolutely necessary. I had to learn to become vulnerable and tear down some major walls, which was no easy feat for me, but throughout the process I've become stronger, more confident and never more sure of what I want for myself. I couldn't have done it without the support of my incredible boyfriend, my beautiful family, my seriously amazing friends and the raddest group of followers I could only dream of attaining! I love you all so much & I know that we are going to kick major butt in 2015! Let's continue growing together and supporting one another's dreams! 
We all have something wonderfully unique and special to offer this world & what better way to achieve greatness than by helping encourage one another & lending a hand when possible?

I'd also like to send a BIG virtual THANK YOU to the growing roster of awesome brands & companies I've had the opportunity to work with within the last year. Your support means volumes to me!!! I look forward to continue working with you all in 2015! ;)
