Boyfriend Coat

Happy Monday loves!

Can you believe this is the last Monday of 2015? I pray you had a safe enjoyable holiday with friends and family. Please forgive me for dropping the ball on holiday posts. I had a fabulous line up in mind but failed to execute due to lack of proper planning. It’s a lesson learned and a mistake I won’t repeat…

Speaking of holidays, I will forever remember Christmas 2015 because we hit 70 degrees here in Philly. I literally turned on my air conditioning Friday and no one in the family bat an eye! It’s safe to say Global Warming is real and Jesus is soon to return. In fact yesterday’s high was somewhere in the upper 40’s, but I will stop discussing the weather because I feel like I do that a lot in these style posts…another habit to break in 2016 I suppose. Since it finally feels like winter, I’ve decided to pull out my favorite coat. For two years now this vintage find has been my go-to winter statement piece. One hundred percent wool, this oversize boyfriend coat comes with fringe and a fabulous bright plaid pattern. My coat of many colors, perfect for the dreamer in me! XO

Happy first day of winter loves!

Only two days in and this week is Uber busy, especially since I’m working overtime at the office. Thankfully, I’ve laid out my outfits for the entire week to cut my prep time in half. Our warm weather has come to an abrupt halt causing everyone to reach for sweaters and knee boots, however we’ll be back in the sixties by Christmas Eve. Today I’m keeping warm in this nautical sweater dress. A staple in every woman’s winter wardrobe, the sweater dress is one my go to options to stay warm and office appropriate. I decided to pair the classic navy and white with my western cognac knee boots and a matching scarf to make things interesting. To top it off I kept the jewelry simple and added my trench coat with a classic bowler bag. Dressed and ready under ten minutes for the win, XO!

Rainy days usually call for rain boots but when the humidity is over 70% and you can literally feel your hair follicles sucking up every drop of precipitation…. you wear open toe booties. Such was the case during this shoot in John F. Collins park at 17th and Chestnut. I live in turtlenecks during the winter months. They’re perfect under blazers, especially on days wear an actual coat is optional. I threw on jeans because it was casual Friday but this look is perfect for an after work date. Enjoy, XO!

Happy Monday loves!

I had a great weekend, I hope you all did as well. Today it’s back to business and I am determined to accomplish everything on my to-do list, which includes posting three times this week. I have to admit that since my blogging sabbatical it’s been a little chaotic getting back into my rhythm. My daily work planner has now become my SPS bible lol! Thank God for scheduling posts in advance.

Since I’ve decided to take advantage of the current mild temperatures while they last, today’s look features one of my favorite skirts. This striped flared skirt reminds me of a teacup in shape. It’s a petite woman’s dreams come true because it created a small waist and the illusion of hips. I always feel like a proper lady in this skirt. The blush and coral colors blend well and I found the perfect necklace to match.

When I look good, I feel good. Here’s to the start of a great week! XO

Camo + Royal Blue

Happy Friday loves!

Can you believe this is my first official outfit post on the new and improved site? As you’ve probably noticed the archives of the last year are not available. This was do to a glitch during the blog revamp, however the photos themselves are not lost. I will utilize them on my social accounts so feel free to follow your girl! The weather here in Philly has been ridiculously mild and I’ve taken full advantage of it by shooting every other day.

Today’s look is military chic with a pop of color. The camo print is classic and when worn with my trusty leather moto jacket and gold hardware I’ve instantly become edgier. For contrast, I’ve paired these pieces with royal blue accessories to add a little sugar to the spice. Here’s to a great weekend, XO!
