I purchased these fancy pants over the summer, and I’ve surprisingly got a lot of use out of them… Worn with a silky black tank for a night out, dressed down with a casual white-T and denim jacket, or winterized with a leather jacket and comfy sweater. If it feels like pajamas, you better believe I am buying!

Wearing – Pants: Zara (similar), Sweater: Isaac Mizrahi for Target (old), Leather Jacket: MaxStudio (last seen here), Shoes: Michael Kors (old, similar here or here), Clutch: Gifted (similar), Rings: Gorjana and vintage, Beaded necklace: vintage

Not that you will need any layers this weekend (if you are a New Yorker at least…), but here is my take on casual winter layering. I am loving the new trend to use a denim jacket as a winter layering piece. My tips for achieving this layered look are: definitely pop the collar, choose an underneath layer with visual interest (like stripes) so that it pops, button up the denim jacket (a couple buttons will do) and leave the overcoat open. Hope you all have a fabulous weekend!

Wearing – J.Crew jeans (old, lusting after these), Forever21 sweater (old, similar), Boston Proper denim jacket (love this one too), Calvin Klein coat, Steve Madden booties c/o, and Ray-Ban Wayfarers

I was given this delightful little fedora for Christmas, which I immediately rejected as “too much” for me. My Mom refused to return it, forced me to try it on everyday for a week, and finally convinced me (er, maybe?) that I looked “adorable” in it. Don’t get me wrong, I have nothing against hats. I often admire them on the heads of others, but I was never able to find one that fit my abnormally small dome (this version comes in sizes) or that seemed to fit my wardrobe. So here’s to new style adventures in 2013! Taking risks and taking names… while wearing a hat…

What do you think of my topper? Will you be taking fashion risks this year? Tell me in the comments!

This puffer has been in my closet since HS, but until recently it has been gathering dust toward the back. I was inspired by a few bloggers and street-style shots featuring puffer vests (like here and here), so I put this look together for the weekend. What do you think? Is the puffer the new chic topper for the weekend?

Maxi Moda

Maxi Dress: Francisco Costa for Calvin Klein (love this long sleeve version), Denim Jacket: Boston Proper (old), Scarf: Urban Outfitters (similar), Booties: c/o Steve Madden (similar), Watch: Michael Kors

It is no secret that I love a maxi dress/skirt/anything… It is an insanely comfortable, yet feminine look that can easily transition from season to season. In the Fall, I layer up my maxis with sweaters, scarfs, jackets, fur, tights, etc. and add boots or booties. I wore this dress for a night out recently with a leather jacket, a statement necklace and heeled booties. For day, however, I opted for a more casual denim jacket and scarf combination. What do you think?
