Bel Kazan

Classes are in full swing and all of a sudden I am busy with all my assignments and readings. But I love it. It does mean a little less time for the blog. A little less words. Though that’s what we need sometimes – less words.

Here is a dress so beautiful and unique you may think I am weird. It’s a Bel Kazan. And is more of a summer dress than anything. I really don’t care what season it is though, I just want to wear it.

I styled the dress two different ways. Do you like it more with a sweater over it or a leather jacket?

Have a wonderful Tuesday everyone!

Cozy Sweaters – #ThriftStyleThursday

2015-01-15 08.04.51 2015-01-15 08.06.46

Welcome to another week of #ThriftStyleThursday! I am so excited we are back on track with our weekly posts! It just makes me so happy!

This week’s host is Beth of Life with Bethie The Boo, and she came up with a cozy sweater theme. This winter I feel like I am the sweater queen! I obtained a lot of new different sweaters, and I am wearing them with everything! I especially love layering them over dresses.

The oversized sweater look is definitely my favorite!

Do you wear a lot of sweaters? What styles do you prefer?

Make sure to head over to other gals’ blogs and check them out! This week we are so excited to have Mounia of Chic-ky join us!

Shop my look: Plaid Skirts and Skorts, Oversized and Grey sweaters, Plaid scarves, and Brown boots.

Missed last week’s #ThriftStyleThursday? No worries, here is the post.

And as a quick reminder, there is a Vanity Fair Lingerie Giveaway going on for Valentine’s Day!

Day After Christmas

Sam and I spent Christmas day together, just the two of us. We went on a long walk along the Cedar Lake Trail and I even convinced him to take some pictures for me. Since I spent all night Tuesday baking, I thought I deserved it ;)

We are leaving for Eau Claire today, which is exciting! Here is hoping I get to go thrifting there! My friend Ann (who I did the photo shoot with) told me about a store there that’s so amazing it even sells cars. While I am not looking for a car, there are a few vintage pieces I would love to get my hands on. I have been looking for a camel coat, and any sweaters I can find.

I also got a Tess + Tricia necklace for Christmas, and if you haven’t heard of them, they are a local jewelry brand out of Excelsior, MN. I just learned that their jewelry will be available in over 80 Core Power Yoga locations, which is huge!

The sweatshirt I am wearing is H&M and it is a save version of the Rachel Zoe one I wore in this post. $14.95 vs $275, you do the math ;)

Notice how red my hands are in the photos. It was pretty cold out, even though we have no snow!

And by the way these quilted boots were only $30 from HauteLook.com. I used to order from there a lot a couple years ago, and now, that I can return to Nordstrom Rack, I think I will be shopping there more often!

Meanwhile I am enjoying my break, watching Twin Peaks, It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia, and waiting for Friends to go on Netflix.

TC Style Magazine Cover + Christmas Colors

_MG_0003

_MG_0285 _MG_9771 2014-12-19 09.17.44

This winter I get to be on the cover of TC Style Magazine. TC stands for Twin Cities. My friend Jasmine is the Editor-in-chief, and we’ve been planning this since summer! But she surprised me by putting me on the cover! Jasmine is a sweetheart, she loves and looks like Taylor Swift, and told me yesterday that she is going to New York City over New Years, flying in New Years Eve and leaving New Years Day, they are not staying anywhere, no hotel reservations. How awesome is that? Here is me keeping my fingers crossed for spring break! A lot will depend on the next few weeks. Plus I am waiting to get my grades back, so the browser refreshing game is on and it’s strong!

2014-12-18 22.16.45

The magazine is free and local and you can find it in the boutiques around the area.

I also have several festive nail polish options for you this holiday season. They are all SinfulColors which is a chic and affordable brand made in the US. The nail polish is very long lasting and  this season – pretty glittery! The colors I have here are Twilight Twinkles, Galax-Sea, Hottie, and Ice Dream.

Sweater Weather

2014-11-20 08.49.12 2014-11-20 08.52.06

 

While I am here buried under my homework, Minnesota is buried under the snow. Sweater weather is here, along with  heavy coat weather, and Sorel boots weather. They are saying it will rain on Sunday, which means Monday we are going to skate all over the highways!

I hope you are all doing well. I am having a little spending problem here… (seriously everywhere from MOA, to Goodwill to online!) So excuse me while I go shop online some more ;) Unless you want to join me! Haha

How amazing are all these gloves, turtleneck sweaters and jackets?

Sweatshirts in Style – Olivia Palermo Inspired

OliviaPalermoSweatshirtWhiteSkirt

 

So while we are getting more and more inches of snow by the hour, let me show you the look inspired by Olivia Palermo from a couple weeks ago. I wore my outfit to the Minnesota Blog Conference in October. I love the conference, mainly because I get to meet new people and reconnect with my old friends. And I can’t wait for next year already!

Style It: Midi Skirt

2014-10-29 06.34.37

My new favorite midi skirt by Joa is one of the most tactile textural pieces that I’ve owned. Also one of the few grey ones. The thick polyester makes it perfect for chilly fall days, and the coming winter. And of course the polka dot pattern. I will be honest this pattern has grown on me over the past few months. Here it’s very subtle, and I really like that.

Happy Halloween everyone! I hope you are all dressing up and having a party this weekend! I’ll have some pics on my Instagram today and tomorrow! So make sure to check those out.
