FASHION FRIDAY: Duro Olowu, Fall 2015

Don't you love coming across a new designer that makes you think differently about how to get dressed? That's how I felt when I looked at Duro Olowu's Fall 2015 line.  I was familiar with the Nigerian designer's work when he did a collaborated with JCPenney. The lawyer turned fashion designer has made headway in the industry with his fashion-forward pattern influenced collections. Take a look:

#OOTD: Aviator Awesome

#OOTD: Aviator Awesome

This cold weather won't let up, so why not conquer it with a bit of style. Lately, I've taken to the trend of assembly clothes that are monotone or have similar color families. Usually, I'm an all black girl, but there's something to stepping out of the black box and trying new colors. And this is the best way to try new colors, by working in the same color family.

I've been wanted a quilted flight jacket for like two seasons. This one is super fly and super affordable from H&M. The pants are from H&M as well. In addition, this luxurious sweatshirt is a great way to add a high-class touch to a casual look. STYLE TIP: Finding a basic piece with elegant details will add a bit of flair and individuality to your look.

MY STYLE: Timberlands and sometimes . . . bad decisions

So listen. It's cold outside. And I'm over it - I just am.  I know I'm from Massachusetts and I should be used to the cold weather, but I didn't move to the south for these shenanigans! So, this week's look is all about how I'm trying to keep it cute when it's so cold outside.

Dress - Forever 21, Necklace - Charlotte Russe, Tights - Torrid, Socks - Torrid,  Shoes - Timberland

Let's talk about how Forever 21 is really stepping it up in their plus-size department. The selection is great and has lots of variety. I picked this cute hooded dress from the Opry Mills store and totally fell in love with it. Like, it's a dress, but it can be worn as a shirt over leggings. It's super comfortable and great for layering, which is what I've been doing this entire winter season because I refuse to wear a proper coat. LOL.

The one thing I have been rocking non-stop are my Timberland boots. They are FINALLY comfortable. And wearing these lovely thigh-high socks (worn here as slouch socks) keep my feet super warm and comfortable. Plus, I love the cozy look these over-sized socks give me and my feet were really comfortable during this week's ice-storm.

So, even though I'm refusing to wear a coat, I'm still really warm. Don't worry about me . . . well, when it was like 12 degrees I did wear a coat. But when it's more than 25 degrees I'm rocking all the layers.
