All of these random warm days have me day dreaming of bright colors! One trend that I think is here to stay and will continue into the rest of 2018 is the jumpsuit. Let’s face it, it doesn’t matter what time of year it is, a jumpsuit is adorable and comfortable! This jumpsuit is a perfect transition piece to have in your closet as we move towards those warm Spring days most of us have been waiting for. As the weather begins to warm up, you can pair it with a trendy faux fur jacket or a neautral color faux leather jacket, if you want to tone down the colors.
Want to know the best part? The jumpsuit is only TEN dollars and eligible for prime! The jacket is also budget friendly at $24, though sadly isn’t eligible for prime. I will say that I personally am very happy with the look and quality of the jacket, especially when comparing the price to others that I’ve seem.
What trends to you plan on carrying over into the Spring with you? I know I am going to keep rocking the space buns and chokers for far too long, but I can’t help it, I love both of those trends!
Fashion is funny because it’s constantly moving forward and looking to the future. So right now the fashion world is already focused on Spring, while we’re still here shivering our way through winter in this Game of Thrones level storm!
With that being said I wanted to share a wonderful new discovery of mine: fleece lined faux leather pants— with POCKETS!! If you are like me, most of the time you are more concerned with looking good, than staying warm. That is until you’re actually out in the weather and completing regretting all the life decisions that led you to standing outside waiting for your Uber in negative degree weather in a mini dress and a fake leather jacket that does nothing, but hold in the cold. Plus the whole, being 26 and off my parent’s health insurance, has me more concerned on dressing weather appropriate, than I have been in the past.
Faux leather pants and thigh high boots are two of my favorite trends right now, because not only do both items make an outfit, but they also keep you warm! Faux leather pants keep you covered, but also make it look like you put a lot of effort into your outfit, even when you pair it with an over-sized and overly comfy sweater. While thigh high boots have the sex appeal that you want on a Saturday night, but still covers a good portion on your legs. Not to mention that there multiple things that you can wear under your boots to help keep you warm and stylist, such as tights and holey jeans!
Hope everyone is staying warm and fashionable during this snow storm!

Need an affordable gown for a night out with your prince? Or you know a cost efficient bridesmaid dress that you won’t want to shove in your closet and never look at again? Well, whether it’s to celebrate your own love, someone else’s love, or just the love of yourself in a gorgeous dress- here is the perfect option!
This Amazon steal comes in silver, black, burgundy, ivory, navy, pearl pink, red, and dusty pink! The dress is made of quality material and the lace embellishing really makes for a magic feel. The material also holds up when put it the test- it’s even Pittsburgh river tested and approved (as pictured above)!
I was able to spend a magical night twirling around the dance floor in this gown at a charity ball recently and loved the way the tulle moved. I fully support any excuse to wear a ballgown, so please share your photos with me if you decide to purchase this gown for an event or just to sit around your house feeling like royalty for a day!

The end of 2017 was a rough time for me, filled with a lot of transitions, so I decided to bring in 2018 feeling confident in myself! So I splurged on a new dress, courtesy of a Black Friday promo code, from Lulus.
I have zero complaints about this number and suggest it for anyone who is going to a fancy event and wants to channel old Hollywood vibes for the night! The material was thick and of good quality, though the sequins did come off some, but that is to be expected. I am almost 5’8 and had to wear heels for the skirt to fall at the right height, so my shorter glitter lovers would have to get it hemmed. Another perk of the length- I wore extremely comfortable bootie heels so that I could dance the night away without my feet hurting, since they were invisible for the most part.
Now for my NYE fail! I wanted a fuzzy pink jacket to keep me warm, while still being fashion forward, so true to form, I ordered this style from Amazon. Despite looking adorable when thrown over my shoulders, if you actually tried to wear it as coats were intended to be, it was extremely unflattering. The coat sleeves landed about three inches above my wrists (though again I am tall), but it was also extremely boxy and despite being a small size, set unflatteringly away from my body.
I ordered two more styles (thank goodness for prime returns) to continue my hunt for the perfect trendy fuzzy jacket! I will keep everyone posted with the findings.
Hope everyone’s New Year has been as glamorous as I felt on NYE! Have a safe and healthy week.
