Happy New Year everyone, I hope you all had an amazing holiday season.  So far, the cold weather seems to be holding off enough to get out and still feel comfortable enough to shoot without a coat and not freeze to death. I recently found this tweed plaid shift at forever 21 for such a great price I couldn't pass it up. Would you ever guess that it was just 28 dollars? The fabric is a nice quality and I love how the bottom is just frayed. This one is so easy to style, it makes perfect sense to add a black body suit, I chose a turtleneck but you could easily wear a blouse or even a long sleeved tee. Normally I would wear my over the knee boots bare legged but today I decided to add black tights. You could even wear a textured pair for an extra punch if you like.  Being so into hats lately, when I saw this cute number at my sisters I thought I would just borrow it thinking it would be an adorable touch. Thank god for sisters...especially when you have one that is so willing to LET you borrow. On the day I shot this outfit it was snowing but it was a wet snow so we just grabbed an umbrella, also trimmed in black. I did bring along a coat but the outfit was just to cute to cover up. Even when you are wearing something as simple as a shift, there are always things you can add to take your look to another level. A brooch or some really fun earrings would also be a great idea. Just that little extra bit of something. When I am planning my outfits I always take a quick look around my closet to see what I have that would complete my look. Sometimes I surprise myself, you never know what you will find that you forgot you even had.
