You know I am a sucker for a great purse. Especially ones that stray away from the expected. Currently, color block bags are trending and I am obsessed! These timeless yet fun designs are a great way to add a bit of excitement into your daily outfit. Choose a design with a pop of color, or stay monotone with neutrals. Designers such as Marc Jacobs, Michael Kors, and even J. Crew are playing with the color block bag trend. Meaning there is a piece for everyone within everyone’s budget.
If you live on the East coast, or the Midwest, we’re getting hit hard with snow. It’s been pretty relentless with low temperatures and mounds of white everywhere you look. It does make the city picturesque, but makes traveling a tad more challenging. It’s times like these, a great snow boot is necessary. Not only will they keep your toes warm, but also dry and slip free. If you commute or use public transportation like I do, having a insulated, waterproof boot makes all the difference in the world.
Here is a round up of trendy shoes as well as practical snow boots depending on where you’re heading that day. If you’re running errands, stick with more practical boots. The Sperry Duck Boot may not be the prettiest, but sure does get the job done trudging through puddles of snow. If you are heading out for brunch with the girls or a family function, check out some of these really cute snow boot options below. I was totally inspired by We Wore What’s Sigerson Morrison sheerling snow boots. Unfortunately, they are sold out, but I’ve linked some much more affordable options.
Let me know how you are planning to spend your snow days in the comments!
Best Winter Boots For 2018
Have a loved one with expensive taste? They will be sure to love these gift ideas. I scaled the price to stay within a reasonable budget. Aka, nothing over 1K here. One thing about luxury gifts is that they are an investment that will be used over the years to come. My biggest suggestion is to spend the money on shoes and handbags for that special someone. It is the best way to get your return on investment. Shoes and purses are those classic pieces that elevate any look and can be repeated over the years.
I mentioned what I am looking to restock this Black Friday, but I also want to share my favorite fashion picks during the insane sales. This entire weekend and Monday, brands and online retailers are giving us fashion obsessed major reasons to shop. Deep discounts across the boards on closet staples as well as fun accessories. Nordstrom Rack is having up to 75% off, Asos is gifting 30% off, and Revolve is up to 65% off.
Without Further ado, here are the best fashion finds during Black Friday and Cyber Monday:
H&M is doing something very generous, and that is giving us extra savings on clothes we need for the holidays. You know the way to my hear, H&M. They are calling it ” Countdown to Black Friday Deals”. I searched high and low at the sale and found my top picks. I would wear these to Thanksgiving dinner, Holiday parties, or seriously any other time of the year. The incredible part is they are all under $50!
H&M’s Countdown to Black Friday Deals
You’ll notice off the bat, velvet is a top trend that I am loving. This crushed velvet jacket in teal has been calling my name since the moment it hit stores, and now it is on sale! Throw it over some skinny deals and your favorite top and you’re ready to go.
Similarly, these wide-leg velvet pants are a total must for the holiday season. They feel like pajamas but looks super chic. Can’t go wrong for under $30! If you have a slightly more upscale party to attend, I really like this long black dress with a low cut back. Looking for more color? Try this blue wrap dress that is absolutely stunning! I’ve seen many stylists are pairing these dressed with knee boots for an edgy and modern twist.
Last top pick is this velvet fitted dress in either pink or black. Super cute and great for any occasion, even New Year’s Eve! The best part is it’s only $9.99.

There are so many more options these days to buy faux fur coats that look so incredibly real and are just as warm. They are super chic and a great way to upgrade any winter look. I love wearing my faux fur coat to holiday parties and dinners. It’s a nice change from my everyday puffer coat!
This season, I really love the multitude of color options available as well as different lengths. I think it is fun to play around with the variety of options and have a coat for certain occasions. For instance, this evergreen faux fur coat is perfect to hang with the girls and this stunning faux mink is great to attend events in. Here are several other options I am drooling over this season. I hope you enjoy!
If you are on the hunt for the perfect winter jacket that will keep you toasty, then check out these puffer coats. If you live in the Northeast, it is almost a requirement to have a few puffer coats in your closet to get through the winter warmly. I have a couple in different lengths. I have my long puffer coat and I have a shorter version.
I really like the different colors that brands are putting out this year. Light pink and metallics have been popular and something I am interested in adding to my collection. I tend to gravitate towards coats that are belted to give a bit of a shape to the puffer coat. They also happen to be warmer, keeping any air from coming up from underneath.
The hottest boot trend this season is the sock boot. We saw it popping up last year as a big trend and it is here for another season. It is a fun way to update your wardrobe, try something new, and play around with fashion. This is a trend, so I wouldn’t invest too much money on these boots but enough to have a lil fun! In this article, I’ll share how to style the sock boot and several affordable pairs to style. Keep reading!
