Work Wear | Leopard Print Coat

I was really unsure about furry coats coming back into trend this winter. I figured there was no way to make them look a) work appropriate and b) flattering. Thankfully I was so very wrong. When I got this leopard print coat from Tart Collections I was really impressed by the quality - the faux fur is so soft and the entire jacket just feels really well made. I knew I wanted to wear it because of how nice it was, but was still unsure about the trend and whether I could wear it to work.

I found that the key to making such a statement piece work appropriate is to keep the rest of the look classic and neutral. For today's outfit then I went with my staple skinny work pants, a black button down, black suede heels and a black velvet cabby hat. Clearly the hat is not something I would wear into work, but the hat and coat are the perfect combination to stay warm while commuting to work this winter!

In general, this hat has quickly become one of my favorite winter accessories. It's under $15 and the cabby hat style has been hugely popular this season. What I like about this one though is that it is unique in that it is all velvet. It's a cool take on this cabby hat trend.

If you want to see other ways some blogger friends of mine have styled this leopard coat, check out these posts by: Oh-So Lovely Life, Miss Moore Style & The Beauty Beau! We thought it would be cool to all take one item and show you different ways to style it. If there are any other trends you'd like to see us tackle, let me know in the comments below! I already had one reader message me on instagram asking for velvet as something we all style different ways; and I definitely think that would be awesome! Let me know your other ideas!

Gift Guide: Last Minute Gift Ideas

It is only 4 days until Christmas!! I know how busy and hectic this time of the year  can be, and there is not always enough time to get your Christmas shopping done. So, for those of you who aren't quite done yet; don't stress! I have gathered up a list of stores from which you can still get gifts delivered in time for Christmas. Think of this as your one-stop last minute Christmas shopping guide.

The details of each stores shipping are below, as well my top picks for last minute gifts. I wanted to include gifts for a number of people you may still have on your list - from your significant other, to your friends, to your in-laws. Be sure to scroll through all the boutiques below to not miss out on any great last minute gifts. Oh and I should also add, that 90% of these are under $50! Woohoo!

Happy shopping everyone!

Today is the LAST FULL DAY for free standard shipping with delivery guaranteed before Christmas (orders must be in by noon EST tomorrow- December 21st)

Tomorrow (Dec 21) at 4pm EST is the last day to ensure gifts arrive before Christmas. H&M does charge shipping, but use code 6982 for free next day delivery for orders over $200 or code 0040 for free shipping before Christmas on orders over $40. 

The time has passed for standard delivery, but,Tomorrow (Dec 21) at 1pm EST is the last day to ensure delivery before Christmas. You will need to do overnight shipping which, for this holiday period, is $10 flat rate.

TONIGHT at midnight is the last order time for guaranteed Christmas delivery. This is with the express shipping only - which is $12 for orders under $140. It is free for orders over $140! 

You can place orders until December 22 for two day shipping. There is a cost associated with that but, you can always sign up for a free month trial of Amazon Prime - which will give you free two day shipping! My favorite last minute gift ideas from Amazon are:

Work Wear | Pinstripes & Pearls

Anytime I can find a suit that is fashion forward, I am all over it. As any corporate woman knows, it can be hard to find suits that are trendy or that make you feel fashionable. The pearl embellishments on this suit definitely sold me on it.
I love that the pearl buttons are paired with pinstripes - one of the more traditional/masculine styles for a suit. The combination makes for a look that is work appropriate but still fun and fashionable. I also really like the addition of the tie-waist on the pants and that the jacket is quite long. I can actually see this jacket being a great piece for a date night or girls night out over top of a fitted dress as well!

As an added bonus, both the suit jacket and pants are under $200 (combined). Score! Burgundy is my personal favorite color to wear with a navy pinstripe so I decided to make sure my burgundy accents popped in this outfit by wearing not only a burgundy top, but shoes and lipstick as well. My exact heels are from last season, but i have linked up this year's similar version. I actually like that version even more as instead of suede they are velvet. So chic! Finally, my lipstick is hands down my favorite drug store matte lipstick - by NYX. The color goes on easily, isn't drying, and lasts well throughout the day.
