Looks of the Week | Winter Street Style

One of my favorite places to go for inspiration is Pinterest – For everything from recipes to sartorial ideas to funny memes or quotes. I love searching for seasonal street style to see what all the fabulous bloggers around wearing around the world.

Since I’ve been doing so much searching recently, because I’ve been doing some shopping lately, I thought it would be fun to do a round-up. So welcome back to the Looks of the Week series with a Winter Street Style edition.

{Nothing says Winter fashion to me quite like outerwear. I look forward to pulling out my coat collection all year-round. And that’s what really caught my eye here – These two coats are absolutely divine. From the bold geometric print to the eye-catching fur trim, they’re both classic but utterly modern.}

{Olivia Palermo is a perennial favorite around these parts. I simply love how she puts together a look. Everything is polished and elegant, very chic, but always with a contemporary twist. Something that makes it very “now.” Here that’s achieved by making the classic silhouette and color combination the central focal point, while taking note of today’s trends in the size of the sleeves and the cropped length of the trousers. It comes together wonderfully.}

{Sometimes the perfect outfit has a pop of color or an eye-catching point of interest, while other times all of the pieces just blend seamlessly together into the look of your dreams. I’d argue the latter in this case. It’s classic, but still modern. A chic, timeless silhouette and color story. And it’s got some killer pieces, but nothing that screams at the camera, just all tasteful and chic. J’adore!}

{On weekends you can usually find me in black, so I’m always on the lookout for fun ways to mix those pieces up. We Wore What is all about that head-to-black styling and knows that a killer pair of jeans always pulls your look together. Bonus – These jeans are from her capsule collection, you can swoop them up here.}

{What drew my eye to this look was the real-worldness of it. While that may sound strange, most of high fashion – From the runways to the afterparties – Isn’t actually very wearable. While this look was snapped on the streets during Paris Fashion Week, it’s an admirable combination of fashionable, cozy, and weather-appropriate.}

MCLV Style | Peter Pan Booties

Since I (finally) gave up heels in favor of being able to walk without excruciating pain {You can read the story here – The Painful Truth About High Heels} I’ve been on a seemingly full-time mission to find cute, flattering, versatile flat shoes.

You know the ones I mean.

A pair that you wear to work or out for dinner, and can – GASP – Actually walk in.

You can check out my Fall Footwear blog post for some of my picks for this season. Hands down, my two favorites are the Vince Camuto Karita Leather Block Heel Over The Knee Boots and Unisa Adivan Over The Knee Boots from DSW.

So when I saw these flat Peter Pan Booties on The Real Real website, I was thrilled. They have that delicate, feminine silhouette to them that makes them look great with dresses as well as slim-cut pants. They even look great with tights!

Plus they’re flat with a thick sole, which means that they’re comfortable for walking around the city in this time of year.

Sadly, this specific pair is sold out, but here are some similar styles:

MCLV Style | Cape + Thigh High Boots

I lived in my black Vince Camuto thigh high boots last season so I knew that this Fall I wanted to pick up a pair of neutral hued ones.

I actually feel pretty good about the fact that I waited until Fall 2017 to pick these babies up, because I definitely wanted them earlier this year. And I was rewarded by finding them on sale at DSW!

It’s the little victories, right?

My Fall and Winter uniform is over-the-knee boots and either a dress or a tunic and slim pants.

Errands, outings, shopping, dinners… That’s my go-to look. Perhaps it’s a bit boring that I don’t mix things up more, but it’s like a uniform. I get ready quickly, always feel comfortable and confident, and I’m cozy once the temperatures start to drop.

Here I paired my favorite little black day dress {LBDD – Totally a thing} with a sleek cape blazer, and my thigh high Unisa boots. I love the combination of a tailored, traditional top with a more bohemian bottom half.

What’s YOUR go-to uniform this time of year?

Fall & Winter Dresses | Florals, Velvet & More

I’ve been on a mission of late to find some Fall dresses that would look great with tights and boots. I’m a dress girl, but always struggle this time of year with finding the right dresses for staying both warm and seasonally appropriate. The goal? Something moody and dramatic that could work with dark tights and boots. Luckily, I ended up finding some gorgeous bohemian-inspired frocks and pieces with embroidery and velvet that were too good to pass up.

They were all too pretty to keep to myself, so here’s a round-up for all my like-minded ladies out there.
