Happy New Year!

Top: J. Crew Factory
Skirt: Nordstrom
Vest: TJ Maxx
Boots: Off Broadway Shoes
Clutch: old 
Sunnies: Karen Walker
Watch: Michael Kors 

Cheers to a fabulous year! 2014 is heading out and 2015 is rushing in and I'm excited to see what it will bring. End cliche year-end commentary.

Let's be honest. This outfit is gorgeous, but realistically, my outfit tonight will most likely be my christmas leggings, a huge sweater, my foot warmer, vino,  and my handsome manfriend and pup as accessories -- the best outfit I could wear tonight.

But in the event I need to be a human and go out in public, this skater skirt and fur vest will do the job. This top and booties were a great Christmas gift from my mom and basically everything looks great with an A-line skirt.

The black clutch says "No, seriously, I'm here to be fancy" and my gigantic sunnies prove I'm fabulous.

What are your plans tonight? What are you wearing?

Winter White

Top: Forever 21
Tank: TJ Maxx (old)
Jeans: Kensie
Shoes: Nine West
Necklace: Gift 
Sunnies: Karen Walker
Mug: via Amazon

I hope you all had a fabulous holiday and enjoyed some relaxing time with family and friends. I'm sorry I wasn't posting last week -- but I needed a little break to stuff my face with all the cheese, crackers, lasagna, meatballs, and brownies in the world that I encountered at all the holiday festivities.

Today I was inspired by Megan from For All Things Lovely and her all white look. I love this white sweater from Forever 21 and I layered over an oldie but goodie lace top from TJ Maxx. The layer really helps make this outfit -- you can choose anything you want to make a bold statement or more subtle one -- lots of opportunities to play with textures.

These white Kensie jeans are A Trendy Peace staple, same goes for a good pair of nude pumps.

Finally, I love this adorable coffee mug I gifted to my two besties -- a truer statement has never about coffee been spoken.

Sweater Weather

Sweater: Victoria's Secret
Leggings: Target
Boots: Payless (SO OLD)
Bag: ℅ Dagne Dover
Watch: Michael Kors
Sunnies: Rayban

An oversize sweater, leggings, and boots is my staple winter outfit. I never get tired of the combo and there are so many ways to style it.

I'm embarrassed to admit that these boots date back to HIGH SCHOOL, but the best part is they were a cheap purchase from Payless! You don't always have to spend a ton to score pieces that keep you fashionable. I've linked a few pairs from Target right now that are super reasonably priced and an extra 30% off! 

A red lip and bright blue bag add a boost of color to the look, but I'll admit I love a dark classic look as well. This cozy sweater is from Victoria's secret and is the most comfortable -- I love that it has pockets!

Happy Holidays

Top: Old Navy
Jeans: ℅ Vigoss
Shoes: Steve Madden
Scarf: Asos
Watch: Michael Kors
Bracelets: Bibjewelry, Baublebar
Sunnies: Karen Walker

Happy Holidays from me and my extremely bright red shirt. Getting in the holiday spirit today after wrapping tons of presents.

Found this perfect festive tee at Old Navy for $4 (originally $8!) and paired it with my gigantic blanket scarf, leopard pumps, and Vigoss skinnies. These jeans go with everything and the dark denim and classy style make them easy to dress up or down.

Love mixing this bright color with plaid and leopard -- who says leopard isn't a neutral or holiday appropriate!

This look is perfect for a low key weekend holiday party -- exactly what I will be hosting this weekend!

Season's Greetings

Top: Banana Republic Factory (not available online!)
Jeans: Kensie
Booties: Old Navy
Watch: Michael Kors
Bracelets: Bibjewelry, Baublebar
Sunnies: Karen Walker
Clutch: Gift 

Happy Monday! A slight holiday vibe on the blog today with this red and beige color block swing sweater and classic white jeans. While white jeans aren't appropriate everywhere throughout the cooler months, there are plenty of ways to keep styling them.

Because this swing sweater falls shorter than I would like on my hips (especially in less forgiving white denim) I layered this look with an old white tank top from Target.

A Trendy Peace rule for shopping: don't be afraid to size up sometimes -- I bought this tank top in a large (because it was $4) and it's adorable belted on its own or layered under other pieces. See how I styled it this summer here!

I'm really loving the white on white with the grounding colors form the booties and sweater. All my usual accessories are linked below with the exception of this fun gold clutch which was a gift from a friend!

All The Right Details

Top: Forever 21
Jeans: James Jeans
Shoes: Coach via TJ Maxx
Watch: Michael Kors
Sunnies: Karen Walker
Bag: Chanel

All the right details in all the right places. I couldn't pass up another chance to style this pretty Chanel so I went with a classic, feminine feel with my leggiest skinny jeans, a flirty blush keyhole top, my Coach pumps, and my new MK watch.

I love the way the silver metal bow on the shoes complements the silver hardware on the bag. The black face of my watch ties back into the black quilted leather and the entire look is tied together with a girly neutral top. Top it off with my Karen Walker sunnies and I feel ultimate celebrity status. 

This is a perfect outfit for date night in the city, all that's missing is my dirty martini! 

TGIF, party people!

Vintage Vibes

Top: TJ Maxx (old)
Jeans: H&M ($10!!)
Booties: Target (old)
Watch: Michael Kors
Sunnies: Ray-Ban
Bag: Louis Vuitton

Going with a relaxed, casual look today. Cheers to Alyssa once again for lending me this gorgeous vintage Louis which was purchased when I was a whole 4 years away from entering the world. Amazing how Louis is just always the perfect accessory.

Black and chambray is such an easy, low-key combo and I added a little color with my reflective Ray-bans (on sale at Nordstrom now!!). These booties are from last season at Target but I linked a few similar options below. 

Finally, I'm obsessed with this black MK watch (another Black Friday purchase…oops!) and can't wait to try it with different looks. I feel like it's more casual than fancy, what do you think?
