currently craving: ankle strap heels

lately, i've been loving the look of ankle strap heels with a slightly cropped pant. ankle strap heels are able to not only give you the stability of having your feet secured in your shoe, but also give your feet and leg plenty visibility. this give the illusion of legs that are longer and thinner; how could you go wrong?

here are some of my favorite looks:

winter white

everyone has heard, " no whites after labor day or before memorial day." this is entirely not true. i'm all about breaking fashion rules, and this is certainly one of the rules that needs to be broken! winter white was all over the golden globes. here are some great examples:

anne hathaway // chanel

michelle dockery // alexandre vauthier

amanda seyfriend // givenchy

lea michele // elie saab

hayden panettiere // roberto cavalli

and i also have seen it over pinterest

so when dressing in all white, the primary color should be (obviously) white. in order to break it up, pair with other neutral accessories (think light beige and light taupe).

here are some of my favorite winter pieces that are available now in stores!

Double-cloth lady day coat with Thinsulate®

the high low project

many people don't believe that being fashionable and being comfortable can go in the same hand. i however, believe this is possible if styled correctly. paired with structured pieces and skinnies, the boxy, high low shirt can be incredibly flattering yet comfortable.  here are some of my favorite picks:

Striped Drape Tee

Merino boyfriend sweater

Elizabeth and James Karin Blouse
