Snowy Days and Kate Spade

I’m wishing this weather was on Christmas, but the snow is finally falling, and it’s time to pull out my favorite hat and gloves for the occasion. I am so extremely picky with hats. If they don’t fit comfortably, make my head look odd, or are itchy, I will refuse to wear them. But this year, I have finally found a hat that works for me.

To say that I am obsessed with this hat is an understatement! It’s everything: warm, soft, and oh so cute. Paired with any sweater and scarf, and of course a warm jacket, the look is complete! Also, these boots are so crucial for wet snow! Your feet stay warm, and they look perfect with a simple pair of black leggings!

Enjoy this snowy weather and stay cozy!

Unexpected Surprise…

Sweater weather really is better weather! I know many of you want warm weather to arrive, but let’s take advantage of the last moments that we will be able to cozy up in comfy sweaters! However, I am not talking about just any ordinary sweater. We have to spice things up a bit now that we are slowly moving toward spring…

So, what is this certain thing that will challenge any plain, old sweater? It’s open backs of course! I am wearing a ballet pink over-sized sweater with metallic rose gold stitching and a very low, plunging back. It ties at the top with some adorable satin ribbon to add another girly touch! I paired it with a simple pair of black leggings, some chestnut riding boots, and a leopard scarf! I also wore my hair in a high sock bun, in order to show off the surprise from the back!

I have said it numerous times, but open backs really are my favorite! It’s an easy way to change up your style without showing off too much skin! Since a sweater is typically plain, the open back adds an unexpected surprise when your walking down the street! I love how the leopard scarf pulls out hits of browns in the knit sweater without overpowering the entire look!

To help with undergarments, I wore a backless bra from Victoria Secret! This one has sticky sides and is perfect for any open back or backless shirt or dress! Target also sells them, but for inexpensive prices! I recommend both places!

So to finish off the winter months, try something a little different! Wear an open back shirt or dress according to the weather! It will slowly transition you to spring in no time!
