Sweater Poncho + Trench Coat

img_2325

It’s getting cold and rainy here in East Texas! On these days I prefer layering, so I can easily adjust from being outside to inside. This sweater poncho and trench coat combo is perfect for that. The poncho is short-sleeved, so I can wear a long sleeve shirt underneath for colder days, or just a tank top when it’s a little warmer. Since the trench coat is lightweight, it doesn’t make me feel or look bulky with the layers underneath. I also styled them with my favorite ankle boots by Sam Edelman and my Tory Burch crossbody bag.

T-Shirt Dress + Oversized Jean Jacket

I basically live in dresses year round, but I’ve been specifically into t-shirt dresses lately. I’m petite (5’1) and also curvy, so shopping for t-shirt dresses can be a little tricky. You want it to be loose and straight through-out, but also slightly fitted in waist so you don’t look like a little boy. I was excited when I found this taupe colored t-shirt dress from Forever 21 about a week ago and I’ve been wearing it non-stop.

Now that it’s getting a bit chillier here in east Texas, I’ve been adding a jacket or flannel to warm it up. I’m loving the oversized jean jacket trend, especially this one I got a while back. One of my favorite jackets to throw on with any outfit is the jean jacket from Madewell which is still in stock with the same oversized style.

My favorite part – being able to change up this look with shoes and accessories. For this look, I added a velvet choker from Urban Outfitters. Chokers are everywhere now, so you can easily find (or DIY) one even cheaper. Asos, H&M, and Forever 21 always have some in the $4/$5 range.

I also added my Ray-Ban Clubmaster sunglasses because I like the all black detail and gold frame with this look. I wore my Chanel espadrilles but any cute espadrilles, sandals, or even ankle/over the knee boots would look great with this.

I love that I can style this dress so many ways! How would you wear your t-shirt dress?

Rays with my Raybans

Growing up in Miami, having lived in Cali, and now in Texas, you would think that I have tons of sunglasses. Wrong. I’m so picky when it comes to shades and I think it’s because my face is round, but also small. So most sunglasses end up looking like they’re about to take over my face. Luckily, the hippy 70’s style is coming back and along with it, round-framed glasses – love!

I first tried on the round-framed ones (really loved the ones with the pinkish/rose gold lens) but then, I found these.

Although I normally stick with classic styles, the hexagonal shape gives it a little more character and looks great with just about anything. In the summer time, I normally go for the oversized look, but this dainty style is just perfect for any season.

I opted for the gold frame with the silver flash lens aka the popular mirror lens; it’s just fun watching people checking themselves out in my sunnies while talking to me 😉 Get my exact sunglasses here: The Hexagonal RB 3548N

I’m excited to transition from summer to fall with these! What are your favorite sunnies atm?
