MILANO. I am in LOVE with you.

Holy Smokes. Everyone needs to get their booties to Milano! It is so much more then anyone could ever explain! I just wanted to take a quick break from my homework and take you on a TINY tour of my “first day” journey in Milanooo! No outfit post for the day, but who wants to see that when they can see the beautiful scenery of Milan. I have met some amazing people, seen some unforgettable architecture, tasted some heavenly food, and OH MAN to think the best has yet to come!! Take a look below at my quick snap shots of my view today.

Form Fitting Polkas

You’ll rarely see form fitting articles of clothing on my bod, BUT when I saw this midi tank dress it was a must have! I tried it on and definitely had to tell myself…THINK SKINNY. 🙂 I just couldn’t wait to see what I could pair it with. I had to wear it the first chance I got, and that first chance was to church! That means I had to class it up just a little bit. So, I put a silk button up underneath, threw on some tights and wedges, and was looking church worthy! I cant wait to wear this dress in the summer. I am thinking i’m going to pair it with a denim jacket or vest and some converse to keep it comfy casual, OR, (if I ever get asked out on a date haha) I might just have to slip on some funky summer wedges and toss on a bright kimono. What would YOU pair this midi dress with?

“Woolin” in Leather

If you can’t tell from the photos…Oh baby it’s cold outside! It sure is gorgeous tho! If you want to see spectacular scenery, come to Utah!

Today’s look will keep you a little warm on this chilly day like today. A wool sweater is the way to go if you are wanting to keep toasty warm! A gorgeous and amazing blogger, Barefoot Blonde, paired some fun sparkly shorts with leggings and I fell in love!  The “shorts over tights” trend is going around, so I thought I would give it a try. I paired my faux leather shorts with leggings, however, I think it would be pleasing to pair them with some funky tights as well.

Everyone give this trend a try before the summer sneaks right on in!

Blinded by Color

Woaaaah, hello bright colors! If you aren’t awake you will be once you scroll down. 🙂

Today’s post is super bright and fun! You can still wear those radiant colors in the winter time ladies and gents. I feel like this jacket is so versatile. You can pair it with some bright jeans like I did, or even some dark/black denim and a button up shirt to keep it classy. However, it could be worn with some cute jean shorts and a baggy graphic T on a warm summer night! What’s better than a Shopaholic finding pieces to wear year round?

Faux Fur Fever

Confession…I have Faux Fur Fever! 

Living in Utah gets pretty dang cold. This faux fur coat has been a little life saver! Its not only a bold fashion statement, but it’s W A R M! It is such a fun piece to have in your closet. If you don’t have one, you most definitely need to add one to your wardrobe! Like me, some may feel a little bit self conscious when you first put it on to go out, but KEEP IT ON! It is a fun fashion statement. You can pair it like I did and keep it very simple, or you can rock it with some boyfriend jeans and a upbeat patterned shirt. The sky is the limit with these fun faux fur coats. Take advantage of them in the winter time. If you don’t then you just might regret it. 🙂

Harem Heaven

Hello H A R E M pants!

I never thought in a million years that I would purchase a pair of these. I didn’t think that I would be that girl that would have the ability to pull them off and feel 100% confident in them, but I LOVED seeing girls wear them. Well ladies, I finally braved the harem pants! I kept this outfit simple and paired my harems with a simple button up shirt and threw on my denim vest. I have seen the harem pants styled in lots of ways! First, I have seen them with a fun baggy T that’s half tucked. Second, I have seen them paired with a cute fitted sweatshirt. Third, I have seen them styled with a nice button and high heels.

There are so many unique ways you can rock those harem pants. I guess it just depends on where you’re going and how casual you want to feel! If you are like me, you’ll try these pants on in the store and think “H E C K – N O” I will never wear these. JUST BE BRAVE and buy the pants! You can all rock them. I promise!

Denim Obsession

DENIM DENIM DENIM! I was so excited to shoot this look! When I very first wore an outfit like this I kept thinking to myself, “Paige, this is so muted and dull.” The more I put denim on denim, the more obsessed I got with this look. Yes, it is monochromatic, but that is what makes it so great! You can transform it into something to wear for almost any occasion! Today, I threw on a seersucker blazer (which is still in the same color scheme as the denim that I am wearing) to dress up my jeans and chambray button up. I slipped on my nude wedges, brushed on some pink lip gloss, stuck in some fancy stud earrings, and I felt super sophisticated! 😉 Yes, even with my crazy messy bun…Yikes! On the flip side, you can dress down the outfit by adding a jean jacket or jean vest, some cute neutral flats, BUT I would definitely keep some sort of fun color on your lip. You don’t want to be looking washed out. 🙂

Try out this ALL DENIM look! I promise you can all rock it.

Raining Polka Dots

 Since Mother Nature is suppose to bring us some rain and snow in the next couple days, I thought this post would please Mother Nature and hopefully you!

Today’s look is screaming polka dots! I paired my wool mini skirt with my tiny polka button up. I first thought I would bring in some color to my outfit with some colored tights, BUT nothing looked as good as adding these dark polka dot tights. It helps bring the eye all the way from top to bottom! Just remember, throw on some pieces that are a little bit more quiet. If your shirt and tights are dancing with patterns, break it up with a simple skirt or some cute shorts. Add a solid colored cardigan, coat, scarf, (or poncho haha) to bring in a little something extra! Play around with what you have in your closet. Don’t be afraid of patterns! I challenge you to step out of your comfort zone. 🙂

I kept the color palette simple. Greens, greys, and whites. Oh, and cant forget that little pop of pink on my lips!

xoxo
