knits and plaids

19.11.18





Happy Monday! I got this coat last year and I'm still super in love with it this year. I don't think the plaid trend is going anywhere. Just like skinny jeans and and block heels, I'm pretty sure this is going to be a staple in our closets. The thing with trends is that it doesn't really matter if something comes and goes, if it fits well and is tailored to your body, it will always be in style. So my biggest advice while shopping right now - because let's face, it, we all shop for ourselves too while we're out doing the Christmas shopping; the sales are just too good - is to focus on fit. So you can still gravitate towards the trends like florals and plaid, but remember that it will only go the distance if it fits well. Proper fit equals chic. And chic is always in!

I've always loved the look of a pretty coat or blazer caped over the shoulders. It looks so luxurious. So while I walked down the street with this coat properly on, I wanted to be a little extra while posing for these photos. I felt quite fabulous, I must admit! I wore this chunky turtleneck knit under with some raw hem jeans and white booties. I wore this sweater on my Instagram stories recently and got so many questions about it. It's like two year old Joe Fresh! It's no longer available, but I linked all similar looks below. Also, I've gotten requests to share my size in everything I wear so here it is below!

the belted blazer

Cheers! We've made it to the weekend! It's been a long week, so I'm looking forward to maybe sleeping in and things slowing down... I wish! Julien is approaching two and day by day is becoming more of a little raging psychopath. An adorable, sweet raging psychopath. It's all about balance, right? A little meltdown in a cafe here, and then hugs and 'thank you mama' there.

I love a good blazer (check out my IGTV video on nine ways to style a plaid blazer). I got this double breasted blazer last year from H&M and it's probably my most coveted blazer. What I love most about it is that it's cinched in at the waist so it gives that va va voom effect, especially with a belt. I love pairing something so classic with these distressed jeans because it brings a little edge to the look. An unlikely combo is always refreshing. There's that balance thing again! I hope you have a good weekend!

This blazer is old, but here are some similar ones linked below!
         

     

orange with red

Happy Saturday! I was scrolling through old photos and realized I shot these last month and never posted them. So that warrants a post on this fine Saturday morning, don't you think? When I first put together this look, I was looking for my white booties to see if it would look cute. Interestingly enough, these mules were sitting in in front of them and they sucked me right in! I don't often see orange and red paired together, so I thought people may be like 'what in the heck is she wearing' (which, lets me honest, is fine by me! Dress for yourself first!!). However, when I posted it on Insagram, I was genuinely surprised at how many of you liked the combo. It's one of those combinations that's perfect for summer, but with some dark hue and a bit more texture, it works for fall and winter as well. I definitely will keep wearing orange and red and maybe even experiment a little more!

PS: I got this sweater from Monki in Carnaby while in London. I almost bought the black one too, but for some unknown reason, I didn't. And naturally, I'm now regretting that decision. I wear this sweater far more than I care to admit and having the black one too would have been too good! Silly Medge! Silly, silly Medge!

Hope you have a fabulous weekend!
