I wore this out the other night (when it was warmer of course) and it consists of two of my favorite pieces — the sleeveless turtle neck and the maxi skirt. Sleeveless turtle necks can be found almost anywhere and come in many different colors. They are the perfect compliment to all high waisted bottoms and the color variations make them versatile for all seasons and occasions. Maxi skirts are great for accentuating the length of your legs and are generally slimming. Black is my go-to color, as “all girls should be two things, classy & fabulous”
Floral is not for everyone, but it should be! Incorporating the botanical trend may be intimidating, however with the right styling, it is a fun addition to any gloomy cool weather wardrobe. The two outfits pictured are an example of how versatile floral can be. For sophisticated rocker chic, floral looks great paired with blacks, studs/spikes and even combat boots (see picture right). For a fun, flirtatious style you can accentuate floral colors with accessories, blazers and pants (see picture left).
Fall is finally here, but unfortunately for the Michigan population, fall often feels like winter. Layering is perfect solution to transitioning spring/summer clothes to fall. Layering a t-shirt/tank with button-up, cardigan, and scarf will not only keep you warm, but is also trending this season. Oversized sweaters and cardigans (as pictured below) are a personal favorite.
Oversized sweater, tights/leggings, scarf, and over-the-knee boots should be staple items in every fashionistas closet this season.
Oversized sweater & tights: Forever 21
Oxblood tank: H&M

Harem style pants are my currently my favorite trend. They have a lot of versatility, as they are easy to dress up and down. My outfit of the day (pictured below) is an example of their simplicity. I was dressing for a long shopping excursion at the mall, so comfort was key. I wore a basic black tank, sweater and scarf, with combat boots to match. However paired with pumps, a statement necklace and fitted shirt and/or blazer, Harem style pants are equally effective for a night out.
Not only are they comfortable, but they come in various prints and colors to accommodate to differing taste.

Combat Boots & Purse: Steve Madden
Vibrant colors were all the rage for spring/summer 2012. If you’re looking for a way to bring some life into heavy, dark fall/winter wardrobe, don’t push those neons to the back of your closet just yet. I think colors are a fantastic route to self expression and pairing bright colors is a sure way to turn heads.
For other routes to vibrant color expression, vivid lip color and statement necklaces are equally effective.
We are all guilty of at least a couple casual days throughout the week, but there is no reason casual can’t be simultaneously cute. Denim is one of the biggest trends this season and just so happens to be comfortable. Pictured below is an outfit that takes advantage of casual comfort, yet still allows you to express your inner fashionista.
