Patterns and Polka Dots

With the winter weather still upon the first thought going through everyone’s mind when getting ready for the day is how to dress as cozy as possible. In the colder months people have the tendency to sacrifice style for their (much-needed) warmth and comfort, but this does not have to be the case! It is still possible to mix some of the latest trends into your comfy and casual outfit. One of my favorite current trends is patterns and mixing patterns. Patterned leggings have been spotted all over the place and are an easy way to bring an element of fun into your wardrobe. They are a necessity for everyone’s closet! I paired these grey and white polka dot leggings with one of my all time favorite flannels from LF. I am a huge fan of flannels because… well who isn’t?! They are so effortless and versatile, you can dress them up or down. This particular one I have been coveting for a very long time. The second I saw it on an LF instagram post I knew that it had to be mine. I rushed over to the store in SoHo, but by the time I had gotten there they were sold out. I guess they were a must have for everyone! I was beyond excited when one of the girls called me and told me they were back in. I wasn’t missing out this time! I have gotten so much use out of it since then. I paired my outfit with a pair of white North Face snow boots, my Burberry winter jacket and last but definitely not least my favorite pair of Dior ” So Real” sunglasses (which are currently all the rage). I was cozy and comfy all day, but I definitely did not sacrifice style!

Under the Boardwalk, Down by the Sea…….

The post for today needs as little explanation as it does preparation when getting ready! This is really just the perfect summer dress.  The black and white stripes and the easy strapless maxi dress are details that are the epitome of summer style.

 

I added some simple jewelry and was set for anything the day called for from day to night.  This look belongs in The Dummies Guide to Style, you can’t go wrong.
