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!

Urban Found is a boutique store with 3 locations in West Michigan: Holland, Saugatuck, and South Haven. I’m so excited to share with you the best outdoor outfit that keeps you warm and cute this winter!

For starters, I’m in love with this bomber jacket! It’s made from corduroy fabric with a printed floral design. It’s extremely warm for it’s size and can go with just about any outfit! It’s also got a bit of room to layer smaller sweaters with it.

Under the jacket, I’m wearing a thermal long sleeved tee. It’s lightweight but keeps me warm, and the buttons are cute.

Next up are these jeans! I’m in love with the textured bottoms; they give an extra pop to an outfit in a subtle way. Not to mention, they’re super comfortable and high waisted!

In addition, the accessories complete the outfit! The hat is vegan friendly and can go with just about anything. It’s so soft and doesn’t give me bad hat hair!

Last but not least, the bracelet is one of my favorites! It’s so simple, and I love that you can adjust the wrist to make it larger or smaller. (I have child-sized wrists so this was a win for me!)

I’ve been in love with Urban Found since I moved to West Michigan, and I will always be a loyal fan! What I love about them is their free, bohemian style mixed with a touch of urban chic. The quality of clothing is fantastic and prices are very affordable. I highly recommend checking them out for your Holiday shopping!

Classy Work/On The Town ‘Fit

Um can we talk about this summer heat wave or what?! I just gotta say I’m so thankful for summer thunderstorms to cool me down. I’m also super thankful for stylish summer outfits that are perfect for going out or even the work environment (depending on the jeans rule of course;) ). Oh do I have an outfit for you!

Brynne-43

First things first: this is one of my favorite tops in my summer wardrobe. I wear it a lot when I have to look nice at special events for work (I am a House Manager for a Summer Theatre and an Events Technician for campus events). It also serves as a great outfit for church and grabbing dinner on a date night! I originally got my top from Spring Sweet, a super cute boutique shop in Holland, Michigan. The brand is Current Air, and they have the top online to check out! I highly recommend. (Note: The top was half the price that it shows online at Spring Sweet at their full price.)

My jeans are from Urban Found, another cute boutique store in Holland, but there are tons of cute fringe pants out there! A pair that I really like is from Top Shop, and they have a high waist too! They’re perfect for crop tops and tucking things in if needed.

Brynne-45

Lastly, my wedges are from Old Navy. I wear them almost every day to work because they are super comfortable and affordable! I have super high arches and a lot of shoes usually hurt my feet when I walk in them all day… but these are perfect!

Thanks for checking out this cute, semi-professional outfit! I’m so glad you stopped by. 🙂

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!
