Coats of many layers

Since moving to the east coast I have had to step up my coat game.  Gone are the days when I could just buy one coat and it get me through several winters.  Now with the changing temperatures going from mildly cold to bitterly freezing in one week, I have had to deepen my coat collection.  For me, it's important to invest in a good coat.  You want something that will last through the season as well as keep you as warm as possible.  You can still look fashionable and stay warm at the same time without looking like an abominable snowman! Below are some great options for all degrees of cold.

Fancy Plaid

Having gone to Catholic school up until Jr. High, wearing plaid was a requirement.  Black-watch plaid to be exact. We had to wear uniforms to school everyday and only on holidays or for holiday parties we were allowed to exercise our fashion sense and wear what we wanted.  I didn't hate having my clothes basically picked out for me everyday, but there were days when i wanted to do my own thing and wear something else.

Plaid has always been a constant in my wardrobe.  I have owned many a plaid skirts, shirts, shorts, jackets, and bags.  You can dress it up or down and its all the statement you usually need so you can keep everything else simple and basic if you so choose.  I have noticed that more and more plaid pieces are making their way into my wardrobe each fall/winter.  For the holidays I love pairing plaid with sequins, other patterns, feathers and fur.  This is the time of year where you can really pull out all the stops and go all out.  Here are some great options for holiday events and parties.  

(I would tuck both plaid shirts into the skirts for a more polished look)

The best accessory

I have never been much of a lipstick girl.  I own a plethora colors, brands, and types but always just ended up using chapstick.  Over the past few months, I have put more of an effort into wearing lipstick and I can honestly say, I am starting to really get into this. I don't wear much makeup so putting on a fun lipstick just completes my look (and adds some color to my pale complexion).  And it turns out that Red has become my go to color. Who knew!?  There is just something so classic and chic about a red lip and it's universally flattering (but make sure you find the right red for your skin tone) Below are a few that have been put into heavy rotation.  I just bought a fantastic berry color from YSL and it's growing on me as well.  Take it from a chapstick addict; if you are afraid to wear color, just go for it and give it a try.  I promise you won't regret it.

NARS - Cruella
This is a great matte option and doubles as a liner too!

YSL 12 - Forbidden Burgundy
This is taking a bit of getting used to, but I love this color for fall

Chanel - Rouge Allure Extrait De Gloss - #61 Fatale
A perfect red gloss. It's not too sticky and you can make it as light or heavy as you want

Stila - Stay All Day Vinyl Lip Gloss - Scarlet Vinyl
This stuff lasts, ladies! I got this in a gift bag a few months ago and have been using it nonstop. It's not drying or sticky.  And its a great starter for those looking to step into bolder lip colors.

I'll get by with a little help from some (fashionable) flats

I have never been much of a flats person.  Heels just always felt more comfortable and I like wearing them more.  I think it's because I like the height increase heels give me.  Friday I had foot surgery (which is why I have been MIA lately), and for the next 6 months (at least) I am bound to flats.  Tennis shoes for the first few weeks (which is going to make outfit choices almost impossible) and after that flats until the doctor says I can try something with a heel.  For the past month leading up to this procedure, I have been on the lookout for cute flats that I can wear during the day and could also transition into evening.  Something that didn't scream grandma!  Below are a few of my favorites at the moment.  It turns out, flats can be fashion able too!
