So I have got a real treat for you today! I am teaming up with not one but two lovely ladies to show you how we style plaid. The first beautiful lady, Darcy from A Memory of Us, showed off her plaid with a cute button up blouse and paired it with an adorable skirt and tights. If you haven’t checked out Darcy’s blog you totally need to! She is super cute and has such a classy style! She also just got engaged so look out for some wedding plans on her blog! Next, is the gorgeous Tori of Fashion, Bling, and Other Girly Things, she styled her plaid with some amazing pants and paired it with a fun sweater and statement necklace! Definitely go and check out her blog! She has such a fun style and not to mention the cutest Pugs that love to make an appearance! As for me, I took these awesome plaid shorts I got around the holidays and paired them with a sheer black blouse. I wanted to keep this look casual so I finished this look with a pair of combat boots and a turban headband. <3

Happy Tuesday! I have been feeling quite under the weather lately (I guess this Florida girl’s immune system can’t handle a cold snap!), but this outfit is making me feel a little better! As you all know, I love me some black so this outfit is right up my alley! I bought this amazing dark grey cardigan from 4th & Ocean (Sophie & Trey’s sister store) and couldn’t wait to style it! This cardigan is seriously the softest, most comfortable cardigan ever but yet, still looks so chic! I paired it with some leather on leather with this lazer cut leather top and some leather leggings. To accessorize and make this outfit even more fabulous, I put on some oversized sunglasses and a chic floppy hat. I finished this look with my studded Vince Camuto booties. <3

Hope everyone is having a great start to their week! Florida has been quite chilly these past few days and I now have a way greater respect for all you northern bloggers! I was freezing my tush off taking pictures. I don’t see how some of you do it in the snow?! Anyways, today I am going casual with my amazing fur vest and a stripped sweater, that I’ve had for years, but still love! I paired them with these awesome bleached jeans! I love the splotchy pattern mixed with the stripes! To finish this look I threw on some casual booties. <3

Happy Saturday! Today’s outfit is perfect for a Saturday night, whether it be out with the girls or your man! As you all know, I love mixing girly with edgy and this outfit is the perfect example. I got this gorgeous top as a Christmas gift and have been dying to wear it! I love the bright florals mixed with the black lace. I paired it with some high waisted, leather shorts that I got from H&M a couple years ago, which was a great investment because I wear them all the time! To make this outfit more funky and fun for a Saturday night, I did some pattern mixing and threw on my Loft polka dotted tights, that I got during their sale so they were only about $6! I paired this look with my gold clutch to give it some sparkle for the night and my favorite booties. To top it off, I accessorized with my gunmetal and gold Nixon watch and gold arm party. <3

Brrrrrrrr….. So Florida finally decides that it wants to get cold!! Well, cold for us! :) So of course I couldn’t wait to bring out my fabulous blanket scarf from Hollister that I got for Christmas! It is so so cozy and soft and I absolutely LOVE the bright colors weaved into the classic red! I wanted to keep the rest of the outfit simple so I paired the scarf with a light chambray blouse and a dark skinny jean. For the shoes, I found these amazing Dolce Vita loafers at Marshalls last year and have been wearing them non stop this winter! They seriously complement any outfit and the tassels are just too cute! To give this outfit a little something extra, I finished it with a red lip to compliment the scarf. <3
I hope everyone is having a great start to their week! Today I am collabing with the absolutely gorgeous (inside and out) Clara of Little Miss Fashion Queen on how to take a moto jacket from day to night. Clara was my very first blogger friend! Both being newbies, I came to her for some advice and without hesitation she gave me emails and emails of advice! She is seriously the sweetest! If you haven’t checked her blog out you seriously need to! She is the master of color and has the cutest style! For my moto jacket look, I styled a day outfit. I paired my jacket with a flowy crop top and flowy leopard print maxi. This maxi is so easy to dress up as well and looks great with a wedge for a night out. And not to mention the sexy slit! To give this look something extra I added a gold, fringed statement necklace and finished it with a casual bootie. <3

Happy Monday! Today I’m combining my two favorite purchases from the Winter season, my leather pants and over the knee boots. I absolutely love them together. The textures of the suede and leather really compliment each other and not to mention it’s black on black! I paired them with a flowy grey heather top to break up the black but still keep it dark and edgy. To finish this look I grabbed my Chanel inspired quilted bag and I am ready for a casual night out. <3

I can’t believe it is Sunday already! Weekends need to learn how to slow down! Today I went casual for a low key Sunday, but wanted to add some pizzaz, and this amazing studded shirt does just that! It’s nice and flowy so it is super comfy, but with the fun studs it gives you that something extra! To keep it casual, I paired the top with a light washed destroyed denim from Hollister and some Charlotte Rusee combat boots. Since today is absolutely GORGEOUS (sunny with not one cloud in the sky!) I threw on my favorite Ray Bans! <3
