Trends I'm Loving: Carli Bybel x Missguided Collection

This collection is the perfect mix of Clueless and Pop 90's vibes like Britney and Justin denim days, am I right?!

When I saw this collection I immediately fell in love. First of all, I love Carli and have been a fan of her ever since she first started her youtube channel and it is amazing to see how she has grown her brand to over 3 million subscribers and be able to launch her own clothing line as a result of following her passion. She has been a huge inspiration to me; as having my own clothing line has always been one of my dreams.

What's On My Fashion Winter Wishlist

During the wintertime I am all about the cozy vibes and as many layers as humanly possible since I am always cold!

Olive Jeggings | Pom Beanie | Fleece Lined Jacket | Black Knit Sweater | Neutral Over The Knee Boot | Super Cozy Slipper Boots | Adidas Hoodie | Long Warm Socks | Black Jeggings 

Olive Jeggings

Jeggings are my jam, I am either wearing leggings or jeggings during the wintertime because they are what fit best, make me feel comfortable and pairs great with so many different things especially with so many different colors to chose from! If you know me you know I live in black 99.9% of the time but have (I know shocking) been branching out into some more colorful options (okay very neutral colors) and look these green jeggings. I am a huge fan of olive greens and would love to try this color out!  

Pom Beanie

Can we just take a second to admire how freakin' adorable this beanie is. I know some of y'all think I'm crazy for liking the pom pom look but I love the added texture and you know I'm all about the fun vibes! 

Fleece Lined Jacket

I get so cold during the winter months and haven't found that perfect warm coat yet. My sister actually found this and is going to be a holiday present which I am SO excited about. It is so warm, so cute and even cinches in a the waist to give you some shape back! 

Black Knit Sweater

During the cooler months, you will most likely find me in some kind of sweater (since I am always so damn cold). Even though I'm tiny, I love the oversize chunky sweaters, because hello cozy and warm! I love how you could dress this down with a pair of jeans or leggings or dress it up with a cute skirt and some leggings and booties! 

Over The Knee Boot

 

I have always been a fan of over the knee boots ever since I laid my eyes upon these Stuart Weitzman beauties BUT they are extremely expensive and the Steve Madden ones above are a fraction of the cost and equally as cute! They not only keep you warm but keep you looking super stylish!

 Super Cozy Slipper Boots

I have been on the hunt for some fun, cute and really warm slipper boots for quite a while and when I saw these, it was just love at first sight. They are so unique (truly fitting the abundance of different styles I rock) and can't wait to chill by the fireplace with these babies on, sipping a hot of tea and watching a Christmas movie! 

Adidas Hoodie

I have always been a big fan of adidas through my years of sports and fashion blogging (and school) years. I am a sucker for hoodies when I am lounging (especially when they are cute like this one) and have been really loving the cropped look lately. 

Long Warm Socks

My feet always get the coldest so I am always rocking multiple pairs or socks or heavy duty socks during the cold months. I love layering long socks with different boots to create a cute textured style and the added warmth as a bonus! 

Black Jeggings

I had to incorporate a pair of my favorite pairs of jeans in black. Express jeans are my ride or die. They are so comfortable and fit me like a glove. You can't go wrong with a classic pair of black skinny jeans!

As most of you know, I wear black pretty much 90% of the time. It's classic, goes with anything and is the easiest to style. I love how the over the knee boots and leather jacket give this casual look an edgy vibe. I have to thank my sister for being such an amazing photographer and capturing some pretty epic shots especially that last candid! It was a beautiful day and I was so blessed I was feeling well enough to have a little photoshoot and enjoy some quality time with the family. Always be grateful for the little things as they mean the most!

Blizzard Stella is currently ravaging through New York and I can't begin to tell you how ready for Spring I am. Not only for the warm weather but to rock my favorite accessories.

Top 3 Winter Fashion Faves

I don't know about you but I love cold weather fashion especially all the layers of coziness!

I am completely obsessed with this cropped sweatshirt and jogger set. It is so comfy, on trend and the perfect snow day outfit for lounging. 

Okay can we tell that one of my favorite colors is burgundy? I have looked high and low for a wide brim hat that I really liked and this one is the definition of perfection. I love how you can style it with so many different outfits, especially mixing it with other jewel toned colors! 

Everyone needs a leather jacket in their collection. I love the little details of the keyholes and the stitching on the shoulders. Another piece that is amazing for layering!

5 Outfits To Inspire Your Fall Wardrobe

Fall is my favorite season for Fashion. I love all the layers, rich colors and fabulous accessories. The more layers, the better!

Style We is a website where you can find designer fashion at an affordable price with flash sales every day! I immediately fell in love with all of the clothes and wanted to share the inspiration I felt for Fall fashion! 

As soon as I saw this bomber jacket, I was obsessed. It is so versatile that you can wear it sporty like above or dress it up with a cute LBD and some booties. 

Ponchos are my go to in the Fall. They are not only super comfy and warm but they look so classic. I love how this outfit is paired with slitted black jeans and lace up heels! 

This is definitely more of an out of the box outfit but I loved the fringe detailing on the bottom and sleeves. The pop of red and longer sleeves are perfect for the fall time! 

If you are a long time follower of mine, you know how I live in my skater skirt in the fall and pair it with any sweater I have. I love this oversized sweater with the cute bow to give it some dimension! 

This is more of an edgy look but I fell in love with it (from Lanxin). Pairing shorts with thigh high boots are definitely on my fall fashion bucket list!

Dreaming Of The Tropics + I'm Famous?!

This was a Memorial Day weekend to remember! I got to spend amazing quality time with the family, shared great memories with friends and family, drank some good wine & clearly had an adventurous photoshoot with my sister. I loved how tropical feeling the lobby was and felt my outfit was perfect for the scenery! *dramatically stares into the distance dreaming of a tropical beach*

While using our hotel as a set for a photoshoot I got some odd stares, got to look at some nice eye candy and had people think I was famous. 

Four pictures up was the exact middle of the lobby which happened to be right in front of the clear glass elevators. While shooting, these girls in the elevator started viscously waving and freaking out so we waved back and smiled. After that, they just started freaking out again and covering their mouths. I was visible that they were saying "OMG OMG OMG." These are the exact words from my sister "OMG they think you're famous, you're Alexa Chung." It was so funny and warmed my heart that someone thought I was this famous person. I mean hey, I guess I'll just act the part ;) 

You also might think the first picture above is a bit out of place but it is here for good reason, don't worry. While shooting in that same location we had these two guys come up to us saying "OMG can you take a picture of me and my cousin?! Are we going to be on Youtube?! Because you can post it to YouTube." So now along with a famous blogger or model, I am also a famous Youtuber. So of course we shot the pic and though it is not on Youtube, I thought I would give them that fame they wanted here on my blog. If only we could have this go viral and somehow find them and then we end up on Ellen :'D 

Coachella Vibes Outfit

This outfit was inspired by that Coachella feel for Summer. I have been obsessed with chokers and lace!

Style Steal: Button Up Denim Skirt

I feel like everywhere I look every blogger, Tumblr girl and trend spotter is talking about or wearing a button up denim skirt. I can't complain because I adore this 90's trend coming back. Fun fact, I used to wear denim skirts ALL the time. Does anyone else remember the time where it was acceptable to wearing leggings under denim skirts and boots? Because I do and that was my go to outfit. Still not sure how I feel about that...

There are so many types of denim skirts out there between washes, lengths and styles. I think this is a really fun trend and if you don't want to spend a ton of money there is always a cheaper option! 

This Asos skirt looks almost identical to this Seven For All Mankind skirt and is 75% less! Say what?!

My Dream Louis Vuitton Collection

Ever since high school I have been fascinated with luxury fashion items. I would find myself browsing through their website making a wishlist and pretty much dreaming of Louis Vuitton. Now let's be real here, I will never own all of these items but it is nice to dream a bit and maybe treat myself to one or two in the future. 

1. Neverfull MM in Damier Ebene Canvas

This was one of the first items on my wishlist. Everytime I saw one it was a thought that once I get that bag I'd have made it kinda thing, if you know what I mean. If you don't then let's just pretend that never happened. 

2. Cosmetic Pouch GM in Monogram Canvas

I never realized how much I use my makeup pouch until last year. I have it in my bag everyday and use it to travel and it is just so portable. All of mine always start to get grimy after a while and I feel like even though there is a more affordable option this would be a staple in my collection for years to come and would love seeing it and using it every morning and throughout the day.

3. LV Mirror Bag Charm and Key Holder 

One of the newer items added to the wishlist, but just couldn't help but fall in love with this mirror key chain. I just absolutely adore the rose ballerine interior! Plus I'm obsessed with bag charms.

4. Small Ring Agenda Cover in Monogram Canvas

As many of you may know I am a planner girl. My planner is literally my life and I would be lost without it. I'm the type of person who forgets something unless it is written down in front of me. I dream of getting one of these agenda covers because I would never buy another planner in my life and would love to be able to open it all day every day! 

5. Palm Springs Backpack Mini

Okay I immediately was in awe after seeing a video of this on youtube. How cool is it that it can be worn both as a backpack and crossbody bag?! I would literally wear this everywhere. I have been into backpacks at the moment due to my bags always being WAY too heavy. 

6. Pocket Organizer in Damier Ebene Canvas

I know this is pretty much the same thing as the agenda but it has so many pockets and I think it would be great to use as a wallet and checkbook holder! 

7. 6 Key Holder in Monogram Canvas with Rose Ballerine Interior

Again my obsession with rose ballerine interiors just grows and grows. I use an LV Key Clay to hold my keys and the pouch part as a wallet and have found my keys to scratch up random things in my bag. One day I would love to get this because not only is it absolutely adorable but my keys and bag would be protected!

8. Speedy Bandoulière 30 in Damier Ebene Canvas

The first ever item of Louis Vuitton I ever wanted in my life. Ever since the day I learned of Louis Vuitton it has always been #missionspeedy I know a lot of people have this bag but I have loved it for so long that to have it would just be a huge milestone and I would never use another bag in my life! 

9. Fuzzy Bubble Bag Charm in Light Pink

I couldn't help but to include this because I mean pink pom pom do I say more? Of course I would never pay $800 for a pom pom but it's nice to look at :)

Obsession Alert!

As soon as I saw Nordstrom's post on Instagram, I instantly fell in love with this Stella McCartney Panther Case. I am a sucker for cute iPhone cases and these are just so stinkin' fabulous!

A Farfetch Getaway In Paris

Forever dreaming of a fashion retreat to Paris!

This outfit was inspired by Audrey Hepburn and I really wanted to incorporate her classic chic style. I also envision a black and white look with a sexy pop of red! Whenever I think of Paris fashion I think of a classic, fierce and feminine look and thought these items created the perfect look! I adore this white Carolina Herrera crop top with this black Rochas maxi skirt. For the accessories I wanted to incorporate the same color scheme but add a pop and what better color to give a pop of fun than red? I felt the Saint Laurent scarf tied around the neck with the fabulous Vera Wang cat eye black sunnies would give off that Audrey vibe. I wanted to add in some more modern aspects with incorporating the Maison Michel hat, Givenchy Mini Antigona tote and those killer red Gianvito Rossi pumps!

What is a destination you wish to travel to and what would you wear?

Currently Coveting

Every since I was in high school I would put together a wishlist every so often and have it as an inspiration board. Hoping that magically these luxury items would pop into my closet at any given time. Unfortunately that never happened. Here is what I am currently coveting! 

Carolina Herrera Sleeveless Crop Top

Every since I laid eyes on this top, I fell in love and couldn't help but want it to match my black long structured skirt! 

Gigi Burris Floppy Hat

I have always loved floppy hats but never found one I truly liked or fit me properly but this looks like it would be the perfect one! 

Sam Edelman Gretchen Embroidered Canvas and Leather Sandals

Can we just take a moment of silence for how beautiful these are....as soon as these go on sale you know I'm getting them, I just completely fell in love with this design and I adore Sam Edelman shoes! 

Little Mistress Maxi Tulle Skirt

Is it me or has anyone else been obsessed with other fashion bloggers posts with their maxi tulle skirts? I love how girly and fashionable it is and am dying to get one myself! 

Cartier Love Bracelet

Let's be real I don't think I will ever get this but a girl can dream. I love the simple clean design and it would go perfect with my everyday jewelry!

Nasty Gal Moto Jacket

The one thing I have left to get that is not in my wardrobe is a black moto jacket. It is only a matter of time before I pick this up because let's be real, every girl needs a kickass moto jacket. 

Dior So Real Sunglasses

I have had my eyes on these for a while but homegirl is not paying that much money for these sunnies. I just got a look a like pair from Express and can't wait to show them to you guys! I only wear Ray Bans so it will be fun to experiment with these. 

Topshop Ripped Skinny Jeans

I literally live in skinny jeans, can't even tell you when the last time I wore regular jeans was. I love the ripped jeans style and am dying to get them in black! 

Nike Air Max Thea

If you guys know me, you will know that I also practically live in Nike. 90% of my workout wardrobe is Nike and their sneaks are my fave. I love the army green color of these and think they would look great with my black, white and grey wardrobe. 

Balenciaga City Mini Bag

How adorable is this bag? I would love to get a nice black bag since I don't have any black bags! (I know shocker) This bag is so cute and I love how it comes with a shoulder strap and a little mirror! 

What are your currently coveting? 

Best Dressed At Met Gala 2016

I absolutely loved all the style and trends at the Met Gala this year. There were lots of jewel tones, geometric patterns and lots of glamour! My favorite of the night had to be Emma Watson, that dress is a show stopper. Not only does she look absolutely stunning but it fits her so well and you can't ignore a train like that!
