Plaid Obsessed

So I am sure you all are learning very quickly that I am OBSESSED with plaid since so many of my outfit posts incorporate plaid into them.  I have had my love affair with plaid ever since I can remember (pretty sure my first bikini from Limited Too was plaid)! So when I saw these plaid pants I just had to get them!1796927_791249100924951_1777568582506202247_o

Bean Boots

I have finally gotten bean boots and I absolutely love them! Let me show you the outfit I paired with my new boots and then I will talk more about how obsessed I am with them!DSC_0342 DSC_0346 DSC_0359 DSC_0376Bean Boots// AG Jeans// Turtleneck// Chevron circle scarf// Louis Vuitton//Marc by Marc Jacobs watch// David Yurman Bracelet//David Yurman Ring

So these Bean Boots are really great for rain and snow. They are extremely affordable for a pair of boots and they are also really comfortable!  They take a bit to stretch out but once you wear them in a few times they are perfect.  The only thing about these boots is that if you want them for the wintery months you need to order them in October. Sounds crazy but these boots are ALWAYS back ordered so the sooner you order them the faster you will get them. I love pairing fun socks that will show with these boots (as you can see from my photos!)

The turtleneck and scarf I am wearing are both from J.Crew and I loveeee wearing this combination so much. The turtleneck is so warm and cozy I never want to take it off and of course it makes for a very warm and chic look for the cold this winter.

What are some of your favorite outfits to pair with bean boots?! Be sure to let me know!

Vacation Wear

Happy 2015 everyone!! I hope you like the new additions to the website!  My amazing sister helped me fix it up and I added some topics that I will be discussing a lot on my blog.  Be sure to check out her instagram for the prettiest scenic photos (@ktakesla)

So I am back home and more depressed than ever. If you all have been following my instagram (@vestdressed_) then you would know that I have been in complete paradise for the last 14 days! My family rented a villa in Saint Martin on the French side (I will be showing pictures of the beautiful island in my travel section of my blog later today!) and it was the most amazing vacation to date! I would highly suggest the French side of the island to anyone thinking about visiting! I thought I would show a few outfits that I wore while on the island!

So first before I went on vacation I went crazy on ASOS! They have the most amazing outfits for vacation wear and their website is even organized for vacation wear so it is all very easy to find!

The first outfit from ASOS that I sported was this outfit where I channeled my inner Kim Kardashian! I absolutely love Kimmy K so this was everything I wanted and more!  Also you all will notice that with all of my outfits I have Flash Tatoos on!  I cannot rave enough about these Flash Tatoos!!  They are so fun and a MAJOR vacation essential!

I wore this Kimmy K outfit with my Rebecca Minkoff envelope clutch (that my sisters got me for Hanukkah!) that I absolutely love. I also paired this outfit with a turquoise necklace and earrings that I got in Marigot at the Bazaar in Saint Martin. For those of you who don’t know, a Bazaar is like a huge flea market but they sell lots of Caribbean items and it is a lot of fun to look around at everything!

This lilac (fav color!) shift dress is from ASOS as well and it was the perfect dress for the carribean. It is so flowy and I love that the straps are flowers! So cute and elegant!  My sister who helped me fix up my sight is with me in this photo!

The second outfit from ASOS that I wore were the cutest pom pom shorts in the world. These shorts are SO comfortable and they have pineapples and flowers all over them. I paired this outfit with a crop top with an open back that I got from Nordstrom a few years back. This was a great combo!

The next outfit from ASOS I wore was a matching two piece set that I have been dying to get! I have wanted a matching set for quite a while and this one is absolutely perfect! It is so fun to wear and I love the fabric.

For my last outfit I FINALLY got a pair of funky pants!! I have been wanting some funky pants for a while and I found some on ASOS (of course) and even on sale (score!). These pants are by seafolly and I absolutely love them. They are extremely comfortable and extremely fashionable. I paired my seafolly pants with a Brandy Melville t-shirt and Jack Rogers! It was the comfiest combination possible!

Phew, I know that was a long post but I wanted to show a little of some of my outfits!  I will post another vacation post roundup next week with some other outfits I wore!

Did any of you go on an awesome vacation over your winter break?  Let me know if you did, I would love to hear where everyone went!

Comfy Casual

As we shift into winter I thought I would post just one last fall outfit post! This outfit could also be worn in the winter however. Just add a hat and gloves and you are set.  P.S. check out the beautiful trees behind me!!

IMG_0943 IMG_0944 IMG_0945 IMG_0946Barbour jacket//Steve Madden boots//Faux fur infinity scarf//Satchel

I have been wanting a Barbour jacket for quite some time!  I finally splurged and got one and I am completely obsessed!!  I love that the sleeves and the inside of the coat are plaid!  As you all know from reading my previous posts I am obsessed with plaid!  It is so fun and adds major flavor to any outfit.  The Steve Madden boots are my go-to brown tall boot for the fall and winter season!  I absolutely love them.  They are very comfortable and extremely affordable.  This Faux fur infinity scarf I am wearing is so incredibly soft.  My neck was so warm the whole entire day I was wearing this.  I love it so much I also got one in black!!

I hope everyone is enjoying the change from fall to winter!  I am escaping out of the cold for a bit to go on vacation with my family!  If any of you are heading somewhere tropical for vacation too be sure to let me know!

Fall Chic

It is still technically fall so I thought I would share another fall chic outfit!  This outfit is soooo comfortable while still being extremely stylish!

IMG_95187 For All Mankind High Rise Skinny Jeans// Steve Madden booties// Michael Kors Tote// Fair Isle Cardigan//Brandy Melville top

These 7 For All Mankind High Rise Skinny Jeans are great!! They are SUPER skinny so great for cuffing like shown in my photo’s and they work extremely well when tucking them into knee high boots, since they are practically a second skin!

I absolutely adore this Michael Kors Tote! My sisters got it for me for my 21st birthday and it is a fantastic bag! I definitely suggest it to anyone looking for a nice black leather purse!  The sweater I am wearing they no longer sell ,but no worries because I have a super cute alternative!  This sweater is so warm and adds style and flavor to any basic outfit!

I hope everyone enjoys their last few days of fall!!  Let me know what your favorite thing you did during fall this year!

Channeling My Inner Blair Waldorf

These last few days have been so exciting and emotional! I have officially graduated from college (so exciting) but unfortunately I have had to say goodbye to so many good friends. To all my beautiful friends out there, it wasn’t good bye it was see you soon <3

I thought putting this outfit together was perfect because now that I am a graduate I have to start dressing business casual for interviews and future jobs! This would be a perfect business casual look while still being able to show your full personality! Let’s get to the outfit details! And of course, there is plaid, because well, I am just MAD for PLAID!!

IMG_0298 IMG_0428 IMG_0483Plaid Skirt//Ruffle Cami//Blazer//Kate Spade Sunglasses//Tights//Steve Madden booties//midi ring// David Yurman Ring//David Yurman Bracelet

I have to start by saying that I was SO thankful for my sister letting me borrow her awesome new Kate Spade Sunglasses!  They were a lifesaver.  For some reason I could not keep my eyes open for the life of me (it was tragic) so I slipped these diva Kate Spade Sunglasses on and I was set!  I am completely jealous of these sunglasses and want some for myself!  I love how big the frames are on them and how fun they are to wear!

Of course my skirt is plaid, which I love!  Not only is this skirt plaid but it is also scalloped at the bottom making it the best of both worlds!  This skirt is from ASOS and I would highly suggest it.  Pairing a white ruffle cami with this skirt and a nice blazer like I did hear makes for a very fun yet sophisticated look.

Let’s talk tights!!  I have received few questions about what outfits to wear tights with and where I get my tights so I am going to discuss those questions!  The tights I am wearing are from J.Crew and whenever I want some new tights I always go to J.Crew to get them!  The tights that J.Crew sells are really great quality and they last for a really long time.  I love wearing a thicker tight (like a sweater tight) as well, it just depends on what type of outfit I am pairing with the tights!  Most tights are footed which is nice because if you are pairing tights with an outfit it is so you can stay warm while still wearing versatile outfits in the wintery months and staying chic.  So don’t be scared to try some tights with an outfit because it could make all the difference!

I am a complete Gossip Girl fanatic (hopefully some of you are too??), and I have to say I LOVE Blair Waldorf so whenever I can I try to channel her and I think this outfit did a pretty good job at channeling my inner Blair Waldorf!  If you have a Gossip Girl inspired outfit be sure to comment and show me!

Pea Coat Praisin’

The chic simplicity of a nice pea coat is perfect to add to any outfit in the wintery months.  This is one of my favorite outfit combinations I am wearing!  A classic black and grey outfit with some pops of leather.  The pea coat I am wearing also dresses up my outfit just a tad which I love!

Funky Fresh

This outfit is pretty funky fresh in my opinion! I for some reason feel like an ice skater in this outfit and I am still not really sure why! Haha non the less this is such a fun outfit to wear and I feel like I am channeling my younger Carrie Bradshaw from the Carrie Diaries (anyone else watch that?!) Anyway let’s get to my outfit details!!

DSC_0310 DSC_0312 DSC_0315 DSC_0324 DSC_0333 DSC_0336Skater Skirt// Brandy Melville Cardigan// bow top// tights// head wrap//Steve Madden booties//  David Yurman ‘Crossover” Bracelet

This outfit I put together is just so fun! You cannot go wrong with a simple skater skirt (also currently 60% off)! They are perfect all year long! Just throw some tights on like I did if you are wearing it in the wintery months!

The bow top I am wearing is from J.Crew but they do not sell it anymore unfortunately! This bow top however is almost better because it is long sleeve, which will keep you warmer in these wintery months! It also has horses and a big bow on it, which I absolutely love!! This cozy cardigan is from Brandy Melville and I literally pair this sweater with almost every outfit! It is also perfect to pack in your bag with you because it is so light weight!

I loveeeee this head wrap I am wearing (color: heathered mint)! I love wearing hair accessories to spice up my normal hair routines, they are so fun!

What are some of your favorite funky fresh styles?! Be sure to comment and let me know

2014 Holiday Gift Ideas

As the holiday season is quickly approaching the fun of buying gifts for you BFF, sister, or Mom can sometimes be so difficult!  As you all know I absolutely love shopping and I actually like buying gifts too!  It’s fun because you can give them what you would wear (in hopes to borrow it, hehe)!  So in light of some people having a difficult time thinking of gifts to give their sister’s and mother’s I have put together some gift ideas for this holiday season!

giftideas_withtext

First I HAVE to talk about this micro Kate Spade purse!!  I saw these when I was home over Thanksgiving break with my Mom and Sister’s and I just fell in love!!  These purses are TINY but so so perfect for your phone, wallet, and of course lipstick!  This purse is the perfect purse when you do not want to lug around your whole life with you!  Just slip it on your shoulder and go!  Seriously guys, I’m obsessed with it!  Marc by Marc Jacobs and Michael Kor’s are making little micro purses too!!  Only six inches wide, I cannot get over how cute they are!

What could be cuter than black and white polka dot Betsy Johnson flannel pajamas?! That’s right, nothing!  I love cute pajama sets and every winter I love getting a new set to wear while I’m home for the holidays!  If your parents live in a very cold state like mine do then this Barefoot Dreams robe, slouchy beanie by Ugg Australia, and UGG slippers would also make for perfect gifts and they will keep you Cozy chic all winter long!

What Mom, Sister, and BFF doesn’t like getting new lipgloss and candles?!  You cannot go wrong when it comes to the Bobbi Brown lip gloss!  They come in a nice pack of four (and gift with purchase if you are ordering from Nordstrom, win)!  Another perk of this awesome lip gloss is that it is not sticky!  I hate when I buy a new lip gloss and it is super sticky but this Bobbi Brown lip gloss is not sticky at all and completely smooth!  The Kate Spade candle collection is so cute and so much fun!  Each candle has a different saying on it and during the winter months is my absolute favorite time to light candles, makes the whole house feel so warm and cozy!

Perfume is always a great gift to give someone!  Most women use perfume everyday so getting new every year is always much appreciated.  I have always loved how the Chance by Chanel smells, it is one of my go to perfumes!  And last but not least, the lovely Tory Burch has a new watch collection out that I love!  This Tory Burch watch would be such a fun layering piece to add to your arm candy!  It is a wrap around watch so it is a bit more unique than just a normal watch band.

I hope I have helped some of you out when it comes to giving gifts or maybe gave some of you some ideas of what to add to your wish list this year!

Boho Blu Boutique

I absolutely love finding small boutiques in the areas that I am living in.  I think it is so fun to support local shops and come across new brands of clothing!  BohoBlu is a “boutique experience at affordable prices!”  This shop is not only cute but also super affordable!  I went in to Boho Blu to check out all the cute clothes and to show you all some of the cute items they sell there!

As you can see both of these tops I picked out have some cute detailing at the bottom of them!  These shirts are just darling in my opinion!  They sell Lilly and Laura Bracelets which are pictured and they are a great bracelet layering piece!  I am allllll about wearing lots of bracelets so adding these two would make my arm candy look just that much better.

This boutique sells everything from purses, shoes, candles, jewelry, dresses, skirts, scarves, and so much more!  It is a one stop shop for affordable cuteness, and there is really nothing better than that!  This boutique is also sooooo cute inside!  I have some photo’s of the inside to show you all!
