Feeling Feminine with Chunky Knits! - Outfit Inspiration

"Every artist was first an amateur." ~ Ralph Waldo Emerson

Hey sweetie pies happy Monday! For today's post I wanted to bring out the knit wear. I am talking chunky sweaters and chunky scarfs. When it comes to chunky knits, they are usually thought to be warm and comfortable. While this statement is true, I wanted to find a way to make a chunky knit sweater fit my style. I definitely like pairing unexpected pieces together often with a feminine or edgy touch. 


I decided to pair this knit sweater that I got last season from Target (similar options listed below) with my tried and true pencil skirt. I opted for an oversized fit for the sweater picking it up in an XL. This kind of skirt is perfect because of its fit which creates contrast for the loose oversized sweater. So that my waist line wouldn't get lost in the look, I decided to do a half tuck in the front. This allows the peplum, which adds feminine flair, to show and draws attention to my waist. If you ever have a boxy or oversized top with bottoms and you want to accentuate your waist, opt for the tuck. It definitely works every time. I decided to do a knee length skirt because I have really thick thighs plus you don't want the sweater to completely overpower the skirt. 





For my accessories I decided to keep them on the minimal side. I opted for these cognac suede lace up heels (similar here) to help break up the monotony of this look. Plus they paired so well with my gold accessories. I opted for my fave watch with a simple pendant necklace and gold hoops. You know it wouldn't be me if I didn't opt for a little print in the mix. I completed the look with a leopard mini tote and brown sunnies.

What do you sweetie pies think of this look? Let me know in the comments below! I have a feeling that this look will definitely become a staple in my wardrobe. How do YOU style the chunky knit sweater?

How to Make Metallic Work for your Office Wardrobe - Twirling in Rose Gold

"To dare is to lose one's footing momentarily. To not dare is to lose oneself." ~ Soren Kierkegaard

Hey hey sweetie pies, happy Tuesday! One trend that I am loving for Spring is the metallic trend. I am spying it everywhere from shoes to clothing to accessories. I raved awhile back about my obsession with this skirt that I got from Charlotte Russe. I love it so much that I had to feature it again on here! For this particular look, I opted to for a more work appropriate ensemble. I paired it with this ruffle blouse that I got ages ago from New York and Company. Even though this piece is no longer available, I linked some ruffle blouses just as fabulous as they are affordable below.




To keep it business casual, I opted to pair it with a blazer and my fave booties. That way you are still covered but fashionable. You can totally make metallic work for the office by letting it be the focal point and pairing it with neutrals. That way you won't be going overboard, especial…

How to Style - B+W Striped Dress 3 of 3 Ways

"We must be willing to let go of the life we planned in order to have the life that is waiting for us." ~ Joseph Campbell
Hey hey sweetie pies I am excited to show you the third way that I styled this dress from Rainbow. I opted to wear it tunic style with a pair of jeans and strappy heels. If the length is too long you can opt to leave two or three buttons closed and tie the ends of the shirt into a knot. It helps you  pull off that easy casual look. You can easily create variations of this look by swapping a few things. You can easily swap out the heels for some flat mules for the perfect casual spring outfit. Or you swap out the jeans for long distressed shorts with sandals for sexy casual look. Even though I have styled this dress 3 ways, the options are really endless. Make sure to check out the 1st or 2nd way that I styled this dress. Which look is your fave? 1, 2, or 3?! Leave your thoughts below I would love to hear!
