Happy hump-day all!
I am happy the week is halfway over, just because I have a lot to get to this upcoming weekend and I can't wait to tackle them all.
I'm sharing a well layered/detailed look with you today because one of the best parts of dressing during the colder months is adding layers upon layers to keep warm and not to mention this is way to experiment with different textures and fabrics.

In that spirit, I have quite a few fabrics and textures going on with this look; I started with this sheer tulle blouse, a piece I have had in my closet for a bit now (and it's now on sale) and I finally thought of the best way to style it just in time for winter. 

I paired a button down off-white silk blouse underneath, doing so really places the focus back onto the tulle blouse as the light hue added the perfect contrast. For my base, I decided on my favourite khaki culottes because I felt it just paired well and I love the pants, while the plaid blue coat kept on with the story of the white and blue pieces underneath.
I finished with my white heels, for a crisp clean addition and the furry bag for the perfect fun finish.
I am so in love with this faux fur bag, it's the best winter accessory not to mention a lovely conversation starter.

I hope you love the look as much as I and have a wonderful Wednesday all.

Thanks for stopping by!

The "How To" Edit With DSW ||


As a huge fan of leather goods, proper care is of utmost importance after I make my purchase.  I have learned a few tricks on how to properly care for leather shoes from years of working in the high-end luxury goods & retail industry, I have also learned a great deal from trial and error. I have partnered with DSW to share some of the tricks which have worked for me on how to care for your leather boots this season and I hope you also find them helpful.

Starting with protecting your boots immediately before use. There are many leather protectants on the market, some great and some not so good, so if you are hesitant on which to try on your boots, I advise applying the protective spray to a tiny less visible corner of your boots and come back to them in a couple to a few hours, if the application hasn’t compromised the color in the specific area of your boots then you may spray the entire boots in an open space twice in a day with about a two-three hour break in between to fully shield the boots. Leather protectants shield boots from water, acts as a stain repellent, and weather protectant depending on what your boots are designed for.

Another trick I have learned to avoid slipping and falling in a snowy and icy area is adding grip to the base of your shoes. I start by using a knife to carefully add vertical and horizontal lines to give a diamond effect though out the base, I find this method works well when applied to my winter boots here in my city of Denver.

Another method is finding the most abrasive area of the ground outside and simply rubbing the base of each boot to it until it’s no longer smooth. This is a simpler and quick approach which I also happen to be a fan of.
Care to share any tricks in the comment section below? I’d love to learn a few of your tricks.
