Baby it’s cold outside. Part 2.

Ah Fall, my favorite time of the year. Don’t get me wrong, I love Summer. I love the sun and tanning on the beach and having sun kissed skin, however there is something about Fall. Whether it’s the crisp air, or beautiful colors of the leaves, Fall is a season that awakens many people. My favorite aspect of this season though is its fashion. High boots, scarves, earth tones, warmer coats and so much more, Fall offers a variety in a wardrobe that allows you to layer more items without being completely covered like in the Winter time. On Monday we took a look at Jessica Day’s (played by Zooey Deschanel) from New Girl coat choices because well, needless to say, they’re awesome. From every color and style, she’s covered them all and all the while being comfortable she makes sure she looks chic as well. Let’s continue to take a look at my favorite coat choices made by Jess!


Last post I mentioned that one of my favorite color combinations is navy and red and this jacket proves exactly why.The 2 colors give off a rich look and I would just like to point out that this whole outfit is everything I love about Fall. The knee-high cognac colored boots with the comfy coat is a cozy look that works for many occasions!

coat 2-red with black buttons

Ever since the movie Love Actually it has been my dream to buy a red coat. There is something so feminine yet classic to the look and this particular coat with the big black buttons is something I would definitely purchase.

new girl navy coat

Navy coats are the best thing that happened to the coat world because it is the perfect alternative to the black coat. It is something different without standing out too much. I have something extremely similar with the same big collar and gold buttons.

Coat 1- blue coat

I am one of those weird people that loves a good lining. Obviously I want the coat itself to be beautiful, but when something has a good inside lining, it makes me even happier. If people can get a 5 second glimpse of the lining of my coat (if it’s nice) then i’m happy. This coat is no exception. To begin, the color and style of it is adorable. It’s collar is bow shaped when closed and therefore ultra-feminine. But what’s even greater is the polka dot lining. It has completely won me over!

coat 3-pink coat

If you know me then you know it is no secret how much I love the color pink. As much as I love it though, I have never owned a fuscia pink coat like this and I strongly believe that next year I will take the plunge and go for it! It’s vibrant and girly, and just brings in fun to an outfit.

coat 6-red chechered coat

This semi red coat with black and white sleeves is something we rarely see and I am not exactly sure why. It looks like a great sweater made into a beautiful coat. It’s casual without being boring and adds in a lot of personality into your look.

So now that you’ve seen all the different styles of Jessica Day’s coat selection, it is time to prep up for the season and buy yourself a coat! Don’t always go for the classic black coat, this is your chance to think outside the box and try something different. No matter what coat you decide to choose though, make sure it suits your personality and style for this is the first item people will notice of you!


Baby, it’s cold outside.

I just got back from a sunny vacation in California and upon my return I  realized one thing: Fall is officially here. It’s chilly and I find myself pulling out my warmer clothes and shoes. Although it is heartbreaking to say goodbye to summer (cue Summer Sadness from Lana Del Rey), Fall is my favorite season to shop for. The colors and styles are extremely appealing and there’s nothing like rich warm sweaters and beautiful earth tones. Other than boots, I would say shopping for Fall coats is one of my favorite aspects of the season. As said in previous posts, I absolutely love a good coat. It is one of the most important aspects of your wardrobe because unlike your other pieces of clothing, a coat is what someone sees first, and the most of. Choosing a coat should be a well thought out process, where you decide how would you want to be perceived by others around you. Do you want to look cute? Comfortable? Chic? Sporty? The options are endless. What is important is that you decide which coat suits you and your sense of style best.

New Girl is one of my favorite TV shows right now for a number of reasons. Whether it’s because of Jessica Day‘s (played by Zooey Deschanel) quirky personality, or Scmidt (played by Max Greenfield) and Nick Miller’s (played by Jake Johnson) hysterical stories, it has made my Tuesday nights my favorite TV night (sorry Thursdays). Jess is an optimistic, bubbly person who wants her personality to shine through her smile and most importantly, her wardrobe. I have no doubt I will have another post on Jessica’s actual outfits which consists of many adorable skirts and dresses, but for this week I wanted to focus on her coatsSince this is the season where I am thinking about being cozy and trying to look cute all at once, Jessica is the perfect inspiration for that! Her coats range from different colors and cuts but one thing is for sure, everyone can find something they like within her selection! So let’s take a look and see which one you prefer!


Jessica Day is no stranger to getting herself mixed up in tricky situations. Luckily for her, when her car broke down on this breezy Fall day she was sporting her cream coat. The color and weight of the jacet is ideal for those less chilly Fall days (and Spring).


Navy and red is a great color combination and this sophisticated, “first-lady” type of coat proves exactly why. It oozes sophistication and the antique looking big gold button sets off a vintage tone. I would buy this in a heartbeat. 

coat 7-burgandy coat

Keeping it classic and conservative, Jess opted for her burgundy coat with black detailing and buttons for this outing. This coat seems warmer due to its length and ideal for any occasion.       


Who said coats had to have a boring color? Here Jess is wearing one of her many vibrant coats. Without going over the top, this muted teal shows that a classic cut can be paired with a different color to avoid the typical black coat.

coat 9-funny coat

Not everyone would be able to pull off a pyjama with this eccentric looking jacket in a club (and frankly, neither did she), but noone can dispute the fact that she looked adorable. This light checkered jacket with a unique collar isn’t seen often but is feminine due to the way it falls and it’s 3/4 puffier sleeves.

coat 4-wool coat better pic

The pattern of this very cozzy looking coat gives off the casual yet preppy vibe. The big collar makes for a great statement and I would easily see myself using a jacket like this for every day purposes.

We shall continue on Wednesday to look through Jessica Day’s coat choices and hope it doesn’t get any colder outside until then!

500 Days of Fashion. Part 2.


500 Days Of Summer is a movie about how sometimes relationships don’t work, no matter how much you want them to. It demonstrates the reality of love, sadness, heartache and anger. It brings you along for an entertaining ride and leaves you with a sense of hope. Hope that no matter how sad you are at one pt, there is a rainbow behind that storm somewhere. 

Along with all the entertaining aspects of this movie, the fashion is also something that caught  my eye (of Summer‘s and Tom‘s) and I wanted to take a further look into Summer’s 60’s inspired wardrobe.  


As I mentioned in my previous post, a common theme in this movie in Summer’s wardrobe is the color blue. Most of her outfits have this color in them and the different tones go perfectly on her skin tone.

This is another great example of how you can dress for work without looking very corporate. This sweet ruffled short sleeve top and denim skirt is perfect for around the office, or grabbing a coffee somewhere.


Who thought shopping in IKEA could be so fun? Tom and Summer took the IKEA experience to a whole other level when they made themselves at home in the store. I can understand why Tom would be so smitten over this girl when she’s got such a fun personality and cute dresses like this baby blue one! This type of collar is particularly very popular lately in short dresses.


She wears this white sleeveless top in more than one occasion in this movie. The first time it is with high waisted pants, and the second time is with this colorful flowy skirt. Tops like these can be very versatile and are useful to have in your wardrobe!


I am almost certain I have a picture of my mom from the 70s wearing this exact same outfit. T-shirt tucked into high waisted shorts and stockings was all the craze back then, and it still is now. It can be worn on many body types and is a nice alternative to just wearing plain jeans!


Summer is clearly a fan of the school girl look because this is her second outfit of the movie that portrays this style. What I love is the teal argyle sweater vest. It’s practical and kicks any boring cardigans butt!


Denim has many different variations and this cute short sleeve dress shows us why we should probably wear more of them! She decided to wear it with a pattern belt which I find very nice, but I also love denim with anything tan coloured. Therefore a thin tan belt along with matching tan flats would be a great ensemble and something I would definitely be seen wearing!


Tom may have thought he was over Summer but when he saw her in this beautiful grey-blue dress his heart couldn’t help but melt a little. The neckline is a beautiful criss-cross and the bow detailing at the waist is a sweet touch.

I love movies that portray real life, and 500 Days Of Summer is one of them. It’s subtle details and real-life emotions draw you in and the great fashion is a simple bonus.


500 Days of Fashion.


One of my favorite movies of all time is hands down: 500 Days Of Summer. If you haven’t seen it, I strongly recommend it. And if you write it off because you think of it as your typical chick flick, stop right there, because even my boyfriend (who I forced to watch it) liked it! Great acting, humor, amazing soundtrack….there’s literally nothing I hated about it. And if you think it is a love story you are wrong, because as the narrator says in the beginning: this is not a love story.

I see I have spiked your interest. Good! I am hoping after you read this post you go out and rent this movie (do people still rent movies?) or download it (more likely)! It’ll make you sad, happy, hopeful and peaceful all at once. You go through a roller coaster of emotions because it is at it’s core, relatable. You feel Tom‘s (played by the adorable Joseph Gordon-Levitt) pain and joy and you get chills from Summer‘s (played by Zooey Deschanel) cold demeanor.

Along with the complete adorableness of this movie, Summer’s style is sweet and feminine. A mixture of Mad Men looks and school girl, it may not be for everyone but there are definite tips and styles we can all take from her style and be inspired by. A very common theme in this movie which I am sure you will notice is the color blue. The color scheme in general is muted, even with Tom’s adorable fashion choices, but blue is something we see very often on Summer. It may be due to her big blue eyes, or just because they wanted to keep a similar color pattern throughout the entire movie. Whatever the reason is, it works and I enjoyed every look of this movie! Time to open up Summer’s wardrobe and see what she wore throughout this delightful film.


This is a look I am often seen in in the summertime: a flowy skirt (sinched at the waist) and a simple tank top. It’s feminine and most importantly, comfortable. One time while wearing this I added a ribbon in my hair and a short cardigan. It felt like I was straight out of the movie “Grease“. May have been a little overkill.


Highwaisted pants have become more and more apparent in today’s fashion and it’s because they can offer a modern spin on an old fashioned style. They ooze sophistication and flatter many different body types.


Having gone to a private highschool myself I can relate to this look very well. There are definitely different variations of this look (i.e. promiscuous Britney Spears) but this is a way to pull it off without being inappropriate. All you need is a plain white shirt, with a sweater (sleeves or no sleeves are fine) and a skirt that falls at the knees. A+ for you Summer!


Whoever said vests were out of style is wrong, and Summer proves why. A vest can be an unique addition to a look. Without the vest this navy top and grey pants would’ve been a great ensemble, but the vest adds a bit more personality.


Another sweet example of a Summer look (and in blue, no surprise there). The detailing of this dress differentiates it from a typical dress, and the navy bow  in the hair adds the perfect touch.


Navy and green are the color palettes rare couple. They go so well together and yet you rarely see someone pair a nice navy skirt or pants, with a green top. Summer did this perfectly, and added a neutral jacket to the mix to refrain from having an outfit that is too busy.


I have said it before that a simple white shirt is a must in every person’s closet, however if you are the type to find this look boring, you can do what Summer did and add a broach or clip, like her Butterfly one! Adds just the right amount of personality to a rather simple outfit (and might I add, the butterfly is blue). Besides who said earrings and necklaces are the only thing you can put on to spruce up your look?

Stay tuned for the continuation of this post on Wednesday as we rummage through Summer’s closet some more. If I haven’t convinced you yet to watch this movie, maybe my favorite scene will get you to watch it! How could it not?!
