Real Tea: Mixing Patterns is Cool

Ok you guys: skirts are difficult to wear in the winter… They’re cold, the wind blows them in different directions, and they can be so difficult to pair with other winter wear! But guess what? I’ve got the perfect fix for you!

I am Trends may come and go, but cheetah print is here to stay. I haven’t seen a pink cheetah print skirt in my fashion discoveries quite yet and this one would definitely takes the cake. It’s super flowy and surprisingly warm for the thin material it’s made from. It’s also lined so you don’t have to worry about layering it with anything.

I adore this white pullover! Chunky knits are my winter weakness and I love how cozy this one is. It’s wool and the simple heart pattern is so fun! I love mixing this bigger pattern with the smaller cheetah print. Mixing different patterns is such a simple way to spice up an outfit.

I also enjoy playing with tucking in the sweater or leaving it untucked. You can play with this style depending on your preference.

That’s all for today folks! Thank you always for reading, and you can get this whole outfit from Urban Found! They have stores in Holland, South Haven, and Saugatuck if you’re looking to do some Holiday shopping!

Have an incredible day!

Jazz Up Neutrals With Camo

This winter, I’ve been obsessed with playing with neutral tones and jazzing them up. There are so many neutrals out there besides black and white! I’m really feeling camo this season.

First of all, I’m in love with this gray top! I like the layered look of the long and short sleeves; it gives the whole outfit some extra texture!

Next up are the camo pants! I love the color and they can make so many other colors work with them. Not to mention, the zipper detail on the bottom of the leg is super cute and lets you adjust the leg length.

If you know me, you know that accessories complete the outfit! I love the mixture of long gold levels and smaller silver beads in this necklace. The rounded look is so unique!

Last but not least, I’m in LOVE with this full leather purse! The leather is so well done and soft, and is a great neutral to add to an outfit with brown tones. I would recommend it anywhere!

That’s all for today folks! Again, this outfit is completely styled at Urban Found, you should definitely check them out for some last minute Christmas shopping! They have stores in downtown Holland, South Haven, and Saugatuck.

Have an amazing pre-Christmas weekend, and thank you for reading!😊

It’s Holiday Party Time!

I am giving some MAJOR actress vibes with this outfit! (My other side as an artist is coming out.) This might be one of my favorite outfits to style thus far! This is the PERFECT outfit to go to a Holiday party in!

First of all, the statement piece is definitely the fur jacket! It’s vegan fur and the coziest thing in the world! Not only does it look fancy, but it feels like I’m wearing a bathrobe!

Next up we’ve got this awesome knit cream sweater! I love that there’s metallic looking pieces in the fabric which give it a little glam! It’s a great neutral because it’s fun at the same time!

I will forever be a fan of olive colored jeans. Seriously you guys, I love the color because once again, they’re a neutral that can go with almost anything! The high waist with the buttons up the front is such a fun detail!

Last but not least: Statement. Earrings. Urban Found has the best selection of earrings, and I will forever be a fan of them! I love the thread of these and they are the perfect glitzy match to the coat!

All of these clothing items besides the shoes are from Urban Found! They have 3 locations in West Michigan: Holland, South Haven, and Saugatuck. I highly recommend checking them out as they have such great selections and affordable prices for the Holiday Season!

I am so thankful for all of you reading my posts! I hope you have a cheerful Holiday season!!!

It’s Ok to Wear Orange In the Winter

Oh hey you guys! Look, I get it, orange is a daring color to pull off, ESPECIALLY in the Winter. I am here to tell you that you can pull it off!

These skinny cords are some of my favorite pants! They are super stretchy and comfortable, and I love the button detail and high waist. I definitely recommend getting a pair such as these.

I am obsessed with chunky knits, and I’m absolutely in love with this one! The cream calms the orange down, and has a tint of warmth that goes so well with the cords!

The hair clips are next! Gold is one of my favorite colors to use to accessorize as it goes with just about anything! And this tortoiseshell pattern is very in, and I’m really enjoying the big hair clip trend!

Also… this purse! It’s vegan and has a lot of storage space. I’m usually not the biggest fan of bigger totes but honestly this one is the perfect size and style that it wouldn’t be clunky.

Last but not least, I always like to jazz up an outfit with some bangles! Silver and gold is a great addition to this outfit, and using different kinds of metals brings out the warm and cool colors simultaneously!

Alright folks, that’s all for now! As always I REALLY appreciate you reading my blog, and please let me know if you have any questions for me! Every item is from Urban Found, a super cute West Michigan boutique! I highly recommend checking them out in store or online.

Have the best day ever!

How to Make Winter Neutrals Interesting

Anyone else feel like winter can be so bleak sometimes? Well, I’m right there with ya. When there are neutral tones in nature, I like to add some flare to darker colors in my wardrobe. Here’s the secret: details are key.

I found this dark blouse which I’m absolutely in love with! The shape of the sleeves is so interesting and I love how they bubble. Although the blouse is darker, the shiny, luminescent quality makes the outfit far more interesting.

Next, up, the pants! Again, the maroon is a darker color, but the dyed black on the sides gives the pants shading and helps bring the blouse together. Not to mention, skinny jeans always look good with some combat boots!

Accessories matter so much! I love the snakeskin pattern of this silk scarf because it gives a pop of something lighter to go with the whole outfit.

I would choose either the scarf or earrings with this outfit, but I am IN LOVE with these star earrings! They are a huge, glittery, and fun piece to add to this outfit! They’re like icing on the cake, I would wear these everyday if I could!

Every piece of this outfit (minus the combat boots) are from Urban Found. They have some incredible pieces for the winter season and I definitely recommend checking them out!

How to Perfect the Comfy Working Gal ‘Fit

Ladies, I hear you: finding a comfortable work outfit can be SO hard sometimes! Skirts and blazers can be too tight, work pants don’t stretch the way they should… it’s a mess. Thankfully, I’ve found a great way to dress comfy and find a beautiful, professional outfit for the working environment. 

First of all, snakeskin is a pattern that is super popular right now! I’ve seen it on everything from boots to sweaters, and this time I’ve found the perfect shirt with it! It’s so comfy with a lighter material that you could easily layer under sweaters and cardigans.

Next up, these bell bottoms are to die for!!! They’re incredibly stretchy and soft, yet still have the sturdy quality of jeans. They’re professional, chic, and make your legs looks so much longer than they really are (especially for shorter gals like myself).

Jewelry can be a difficult area to complete an outfit, but these hoops have all the different shades of my outfit in metallics. I also love the way the necklace chains drape to give it just enough detail.

The simple beaded bracelets compliment the colors and overall texture of the outfit. In addition, the purse is vegan leather, and is the perfect size to carry a wallet, phone, and other small necessities.

I hope this inspires you for all of your outfits on the go! I was lucky enough to find all of these beautiful outfit pieces from Urban Found! Check out Urban Found in stores in Holland, Saugatuck, or South Haven Michigan or check out their website here.

As always, I am so encouraged by you reading my blog, so thank you for listening!!! You are so appreciated!

My bodysuit is from Hollister and although they don’t have it on their website anymore, I’ve got a couple of second options in other stores that I’ve linked below. I also found bodysuits with different backs just in case you were looking for some variety! I especially love white bodysuits as they can go with anything and they’re a great wardrobe staple.

Brynne-5

My skort is from Zara, and I was in love when I found it! I’m a huge fan of feeling like what I’m wearing will not fly up when I’m just walking around haha. It’s super comfortable and so unique!

Brynne-9

Lastly, I found my loafers at an antique barn, and they’re most likely from the 50’s or 60’s. Luckily enough, I found a very similar pair on Lulus website and they’re super cute and affordable!

Well, that’s all for now folks! Thank you for giving this outfit a look, I’m so pumped for you to get some inspo! (Also pro tip, this ‘fit pairs perfectly with a denim jacket so have at it haha).

Dress Up and Smell the Roses

Yay, it’s finally July! I’m so glad we are in the midst of summer. It’s the perfect time to hit the beach, find a cool vacation spot, and eat a lot of ice cream!

I put together this outfit very recently and I’m OBSESSED. It’s perfect for city life, going out, or having a summer get-together!

Brynne-16

My halter bodysuit is from Hollister and I got it for around $8. It was on sale when I got it and they don’t have it in stores anymore, but I pulled a couple other options for white bodysuits with different backings that you can check out!

I got my jeans 2 years ago from this cute shop where I live called Urban Found. (It’s a West Michigan store, so if you live in the mitten I definitely recommend since they have really cute and affordable jeans like these. GUESS WHAT THOUGH? I found the same pants on Amazon so you should definitely check them out.

Brynne-20

Lastly, my loafers are from Nordstrom Rack and they’re the brand Sam Edelman. I LOVE a good pair of white shoes, especially with the studs. Nordstrom Rack has Sam Edelman shoes for much cheaper then they are on the original website, so I highly suggest checking Nordstrom first. I’ve linked multiple options (some white and some not) below for you to pair with this outfit.

I hope you’re inspired for your next summer day in the city or out and about!

What I Wore: New Orleans Outfit #3

Hello I’m finally back! It’s been a busy week… finals are here and I have six more days of undergrad… yikes! Thankfully the lack of classes gives me some time to catch up on a little writing!

This is one of my favorite outfits of that I’ve put together for the Spring. It’s so casual and easily cute at the same time. I have worn it so much already and I’ve only had it together for a month!

Processed with VSCO with a6 preset

My top is from Free People and I LOVE the texture. This olive/brown color is a weird color that works well with my skin tone and it’s honestly one of my favorite colors. I got it at JB & Me, but you can get in other colors online (they were out of green:(  ).

My jeans are from The Gap Outlets, and I love how stretchy and comfy they are! I wear them with so many different outfits and they are a great basic piece to have in your closet.

Lastly, my shoes are from Nordstrom Rack and they are the brand Sam Elderman. I’ve been looking for funky white loafers and I was so pumped when I saw these!

That’s all I’ve got for today folks! For all you college kids, I’m sending lots of encouragement your way! This is a stressful time of the year, but I know you can do it!

What I Wore: Outfit #2 in New Orleans

Hello everyone, it’s finally spring! It feels surreal to walk around without a coat on. It’s so beautiful out that I’ve had the urge to go to the beach and get ice cream multiple times this week, can’t deny it any longer!

With warmer weather comes lots of Spring fashion! This is one of my favorite outfits I wore in New Orleans. It was super comfortable and I was able to wear it while I took a cemetery tour and walk all over the French Quarter! It had the perfect lightness to keep me cool, but just enough protection from getting too much sun.

My top is a passed on vintage blouse from my aunt. It’s 100% silk and I absolutely love it because it’s so soft and light! The colors are super fun as well. It kind of reminds me of Dr. Facilier from The Princess and the Frog!

My tank top is also passed on vintage from my aunt, but I found a very similar version on Lulus that I love! (It’s Free People, of course.)

My jeans are from the Gap Outlet, and they are so stretchy and comfy. The high waist is such a cute look with a longer shirt or with something you can partially tuck in.

I got my sunglasses from The Trashy Diva, a vintage inspired boutique store in the French Quarter. I loved their glasses and I had to get this pair!

Lastly, my shoes are the brand Sam Elderman and I got them from Nordstrom Rack! Nordstrom’s shoes are always so cute and I could honestly spend hours in there trying things on! If you ever need a new pair of shoes before you go on vacation, Nordstrom Rack is the place to look.

I’ve linked very similar clothing pieces at the bottom to get the same look as the one I’ve put together in my post.

I hope you enjoy this beautiful spring weather and you’re looking forward to summer as much as I am! Have an incredible day!
