Pink Peonies is one of my favorite blogs.  I love Rach's classic, yet edgy style.  I daily look at her blog to see what she is wearing and for some style inspiration.  I am always tempted to buy what she is wearing.  Today I thought I would re-create a look of hers with some more budget-friendly options - like this $18 peter pan collar dress.

How to Wear: Winter White

1. Moto Jacket: Forever 21
2. Bracelet: Kate Spade @ Nordstrom
3. Tote: Jessica Simpson @ Nordstrom
4. Pumps: Jessica Simpson @ Nordstrom
5. Sweater: J. Crew
6. Jeans: J. Crew

Happy Wednesday!  Winter white is a favorite look of mine, but I like to mix it up with a pop of color.  Caramel and cobalt blue is a favorite combo, which I think it mixes well with white. 

Also, this moto jacket is a great deal - only $28 - and the reviewers all seem to agree that it is a good deal for the money and that the leather does not look cheap - always a bonus.

What a couple of reviewers said: 
"Not only is the price affordable, but the jacket itself is fantastic quality..."
"It is really great quality and looks like real leather. Super comfortable, so soft and looks great on..."

What to Wear: Cold vs. Warm

Shop the COLD Look:
1. Puffer Jacket / 2. Skinny jeans / 3. Gloves / 4. Boots (or here)

Shop the WARM Look:
5. "Always Shine" Bracelet /  6. Bikini Top / 7. Bikini Bottom 

What's new... It's cold outside, again!  So, today I thought I would think about warmer days and sunnier places, and put together two looks - one for the cold we are all enduring and another for warmer places (and summer!).  I love this polka dot bikini with the coral accent.  Also, these sandals are my favorite (and most comfortable) sandals.  I wore them all last summer and never had any blisters or pain - even when I walked around for hours! (I did have to size up a half size because my normal size was a little too small.)  For those in the arctic cold, here are a few things to keep you warm - a puffer jacket and fur lined boots.  Have a great weekend!

How To Wear: Red Suit

red suit, emma thompson red suit, suit under $100, budget friendly suit, suit for less, pendant necklace, the limited, sales, fashion, style

Shop the Look: 
1. Jacket (60% off / $51 on sale) / 2. Pant (40% off / $48 on sale) & Similar Pant (60% off / $32 on sale) 
3. Clutch / 4. Pendant Necklace (BOGO 50% off jewelry) / 5. Bracelet / 6. Pumps

A few years ago, I got a pair of bold red pants at the Loft, which ended up hanging in my closet several months because I was afraid to wear them to work. I thought they were too bold.  I finally got up the courage to wear them after I was inspired by a look I found on how to style them.  I shouldn't have waited so long because from the first time I wore them, I have gotten compliments and others tell me how I inspire them to be daring enough to buy red pants and wear them. Recently, Emma Thompson was on the Ellen show wearing a red suit - I loved the look! It was styled perfectly and not overdone - since the red suit is bold enough on its own - it is best to keep the styling simple with neutral colors.  Just today, I found a similar suit at The Limited, and it is on SALE. You can get the entire suit for under $100, which is less than the jacket costs originally. I would definitely recommend it. This suit is traditional enough that it could be worn for a few years and would definitely transition well between seasons.

What to Wear: Winter Style

Shop the Look:
4. Cableknit Sweater / 5. Charm Bracelet / 6. Boots - (here and here - on sale!)

Today's look is both casual and fun - great for running errands on a Saturday.  It was inspired by a favorite style blog of mine.

I have been a big fan of Gap recently and their collections - I love their wool ombre moto jacket, boyfriend jeans, chunky knit sweater, and this camo parka

This camo parka is a lot of fun (and right on trend with faux fur and camo print). It looks extra warm with the sherpa lining - which is removable so when it is warmer, the lining could be removed for a thinner spring/fall jacket. And, the camo parka is on sale (and if you can believe it - it is only $35! - on sale). I love these burgundy slouchy boots. I have been looking for a red pair of boots, and I like the slouchy style. I think they are more flattering because they balance the width of my hips when I am wearing skinny jeans. I love short booties, too, but sometimes, I think slouchy boots are the better choice, plus in this extremely cold weather, they keep me a little warmer around the ankles.

Hope you are having a good week so far - and staying warm!

How to Wear: Denim Jacket Two Ways

Shop the Looks:
1. Stone Necklace  / 2. Blouse Dress (40% off - Code: Get40)
5. Booties / 6. Button Down (25% off - Code: GapHello) / 7. Toothpick Jean

Hope you had a great weekend! Jackets are a favorite staple of mine, especially denim ones.  Today's look shows how you can wear a denim jacket - two ways.  The first look is a printed blouse dress, which could easily be worn in the spring/summer with flats/sandals or in the fall/winter with tights and booties.  The second look is a winter white look - with white toothpick jeans and a white dotted button down.  I am not sure you can see in the image, but there are raised dots on the top.  It used to be a fashion don't to wear white after labor day or before memorial day, but that "rule" no longer exists, and I see a lot of people wearing white throughout the year.

Shop the Looks: 
8. Faux Leather Skater Skirt / 9. Ankle Bootie - here or here

Hope you had a great weekend!  Plaid is a big trend this season and with a little inspiration from a few of my favorite style bloggers, I have put together a couple of looks. The first is a more casual look with the distressed denim and a mix of prints with the striped top and leopard heels. I like the mixing of prints.  The second look I have re-styled this chunky knit turtleneck from last week with a faux leather skater skirt and short booties.

Finds & Deals: Faux Fur under $60

styles for less, coats under $60
Shop the Looks: 
One / Two / Three / Four / Fix / Six

I like how adding a fur collar to any jacket makes it look so much more polished and fun!  I got a puffer jacket a few years ago with a rabbit fur collar (like this one) and even though it is a casual jacket, it feels somewhat dressy because of the collar, plus I am always cold and the fur is very cozy and warm.  And, if you find a coat with a detachable collar it is easy to pin it to another coat, like the denim coat below (or like Rach from Pink Peonies in the first picture - she took the fur collar from the tweed jacket (second picture) and pinned in on the camel coat).

Finds & Deals: $25 Utility Jacket

 Shop the Look: 
This utility jacket is a great deal - only $25 (Code: Extra30). If you follow Pinterest Told Me To, this jacket reminds me of the military jacket Sheaffer highly recommends.  

I have been really surprised by the quality of sweaters I have gotten for really cheap at Forever 21.  I never used to shop there because I thought I was too old, and that it was a store was just cheap tops and tight (short) mini skirts, plus the store overwhelmed me!  But, recently, I bought a few things like this shaggy black sweater with zippers (for only $30) and this other shaggy blue sweater (for a really good deal of only $11) and I have gotten more compliments on them, than sweaters I paid twice the price for (and not as great of quality).  So, check out Forever 21...
