My Three Favorite Trends

how-to-style-a-shearling-vestHappy Wednesday, everyone! Can you believe that this is my second post this week? 😉 I know it doesn’t seem like a big deal, but I used to post three times per week and the past few months that had fallen by the wayside (which I’m sure you’ve noticed), so I’m extremely happy to be getting back into the swing of things!

Today I wanted to talk about three of my favorite trends right now: shearling vests, over the knee boots and bucket bags. Although they’re considered “trendy” right now, what I love is that they can be worn season after season! I’ve had these over the knee boots for almost one year now and literally wear them with everything, and I’ve been lusting after a shearling vest for years! In fact, I spotted this one at Nordstrom Rack and fell in love… plus the $20 price point didn’t hurt, either! It comes in so many different colors and sizes, so I would snatch it up while you can!

My favorite thing about these pieces is that they’re super versatile and you can pair them with anything in you’re closet. Rather than a sweater and leggings, throw the shearling vest and over the knee boots (love this gorgeous pair!) on with a cute winter dress! Once you grab your bucket bag, you’re all set to go! They’re great because they can easily be dressed down – like in this post – or dressed up like I suggested!

I’m not over exaggerating when I say that I wore this shearling vest everyday for two weeks straight, and that I haven’t taken these over the knee boots off, either!

What are your favorite pieces this season?

Shearling Vest: Nordstrom Rack (only $20!!) // Sweater: TJ Maxx (similar) // Leggings: Zella (this is my favorite pair because of the high waist!) // Over the Knee Boots: DSW (one of the cheaper options I’ve seen!) // Bucket Bag: Urban Outfitters (similar here and here)

    My goodness, you look gorgeous in this look! I think OTK boots and bucket bags absolutely go together and the shearling vest is a new piece I would love to try. Extremely stylish and your photos are top notch!

    Love, Liz
