Something Old, Something New

Have You Seen That New....H&M Studio AW17 Collection

Black, White & A Pop of Colour

I'm sure it's safe to say that we all own at least something from H&M, and boy it's good to see them tipping their toes into the high-fashion realms.  Lucky for us pieces included in this amazing studio collection will soon be in a store near us, and were even avail for purchase right after the runway show.  Don't you just love the new see now, buy right from runway wave of fashion. 

The collection contains all the things I am currently obsessing over which is ruffles, feminine lace notes and transparent layers with a light and refreshing twist.  Keeping the color scheme quite monochrome is one that is most attractive to my minimalist style.  But one can not ignore the brilliance that the pop of fuschia on the lip and splashed throughout the collection provided.

I also really appreciated the androgyny and structured pieces throughout the collection.  This was said to be the first H&M collection that featured menswear.  Guys (and the gals) donned everything from tailored suiting to brightly colored pink coats and hoodies.

Just Keep Adding Layers

Hey guys in this post, I am showing you all how to just add a few layers to make the most of a look.  Here in Memphis, this winter has been particularly milder than most, so I haven't had to worry with wearing a heavy coat. Chunky knitwear, blazers and jackets have been my essentials.

In this look, my first layer is a sleeveless turtleneck.  Sleeveless is always a viable option for starters because it helps to alleviate bulkiness that may occur from adding the layers.  Next I added, a thin denim jacket.  Again, going with a thinner jacket option will help with the final aesthetic of the look.  Everything will look seamless and effortless, and not forced or bulky.

Lastly, I topped everything off with a super chunky knit cardigan.  The cardigan is absolutely perfect for cozying up, and making a statement.

These Boots were made for Walking

Hey guys, I wanted to formally introduce you all to my new babies.  I have actually had them for about a month and I've been wearing them non-stop, but I haven't been keen on taking outfit post pictures due to the insanely cold weather.   However, on this day the weather cooperated, so I got my photography to snap a few shots of this look.

So as you all know I am obsessed with black, white or any combination of the two.  This outfit, I paired a basic white rollneck with an old pair of culottes from my college days that I have been practicallyliving in.  They are the comfiest material ever.  To sort of bring the look together, I topped off the look with a cozy, black fur jacket.
