I still have been wearing beanies and trench coats pretty much on the daily over here! I love this trench from Forever 21 in particular because of how lightweight it is. This is the perfect piece to transition into spring. It still keeps me warm if I pair a thick scarf on top.
I hope you all are having a great week so far! I’m heading up to LA tomorrow and will be staying there all weekend to attend some fun beauty events. I’ll make sure to post some pics on Instagram and Snapchat (kendraatkins)!
Sometimes you just need to wear black. I’m slightly obsessed with this coat from RO & DE noir. It is super warm and so chic with any outfit. I’m am completely in the holiday spirit these days, wearing warm coats, drinking white russians and listening to Christmas music 24/7. And I finished all my holiday shopping yesterday. It was a Christmas miracle! I hope you are all enjoying December so far. Only 14 more days until Christmas!
So ever since I got this coat, I haven’t taken it off. Okay well occasionally. Andrew asked me last night, why do you always have that coat on? Because it’s cute and warm! If you are looking for a great trench that is warm for the winter, I’d highly recommend this one! I also have it in a dark green shade which is stunning. I kind of want to get it in black and grey now too. Yes the obsession is real! I’m also super into my thigh high boots. I think they add a nice edge to any outfit, and also warm up your legs! I hope you are all having a wonderful month so far. I am currently blasting the heater in an attempt to warm up my frozen fingers. I would never make it on the east coast. Major props to all of you who are actually in cold weather. Have a great day guys!
So I’m fully aware that it’s still November, but I’m so ready for Christmas. I walked through Target yesterday and couldn’t stop staring at all their holiday decor. If you like metallics and white, you need to go take a look at their new things. I was just scrolling through Joss & Main, which has become a morning ritual now, and got sucked into the Christmas stuff. I even took out some holiday decor pieces I had in storage last night and tried to put them up super nonchalant so Andrew wouldn’t be able to tell. Here is my compromise, I’m decorating ‘wintery’ right now. No santa’s or red and green is up in our home, just whites and metallics. So if you want to start decorating but be secretive about it, I came up with some ‘winter’ picks that will get you in the mood, but won’t make you look like a Christmas freak. (Confession: Michael Buble Holiday is currently playing on my Pandora.)
I just got done painting my nails and was completely inspired by a new color palette for this winter. When I think of winter nails, I think dusty purples and blues, muted nudes and deep wines. I love my nails to have color and be interesting, but I also need a break from all the cherry reds I was wearing back in November and December. I rounded up my top nail colors that draw me in. These shades all have that soft vibe, and give you the feeling of cozy nights in and a shift in seasons.
(fyi- I purchased my pieces in-store, so the selection online varies)
Nothing feels more like the holidays like a warm coat. I found this beautiful burgundy coat at H&M and knew I had to style an outfit around it. I like wearing one piece in a rich color, and pairing everything else around it. I chose these awesome pants that have a block of denim at the calf and a printed shirt that has a quilted feel to it. My trusty brown booties go with every outfit, so this one was no exception! It has finally cooled down in southern California and I couldn’t be happier. We are supposed to get rain tonight, but not nearly as much as other places right now. If you are in a blizzard or rain storm stay safe! I hope you all are having a great week!
Happy Monday! I hope you all had a great weekend. This week I am bringing you two holiday inspired outfits all from H&M. I love that you can find great gifts for everyones there. From your husband to your niece, you will definitely be able to find something super cute. For this outfit I wanted to use warm and cozy pieces in varying fabrics and patterns. This look is perfect for grabbing coffee with a friend, finishing your holiday shopping, or just watching a movie by the fireplace. Start your look off with a great pair of jeans. I am really into lighter, more faded styles right now. These are H&M’s shaping jeans, which trim your waist, thighs and butt. How neat is that? I also have been loving stripes. Striped tops are a great staple item to have in your closet because you can pair them with so many different things. I finished the look off with a pair of brown booties, a great knit scarf and a fun beanie. You should check out H&M’s boots right now. Seriously, I was browsing online and pretty much want them all! Click HERE to see a ton of styles. Let me know in the comments what your favorite things to wear for the holidays are!
Let’s talk about my love for sweaters. There is nothing more cozy and cute than a slightly oversized cable knit sweater. They really can serve as a great base piece to any outfit. Most look great with a great pair of tall boots, or booties. Leather and suede are my favorite types. You can also add in more knit pieces, like an infinity scarf or a warm beanie. Let me know some of your favorite stores to stock up on sweaters in the comments! I hope you are all having a great week, thanks so much for stopping by! (I also just posted a new video on my YouTube channel!)
Black is clearly my go to color. I always start with a few basic pieces and then go from there. With this look, I started with a pair of black skinny jeans and a black t-shirt with awesome leather sleeves. I added a zig zap printed sweater and some classic black heels. I always view makeup as the finishing touch to any outfit, so I wore a classic red lip to pull the all black ensemble together.
