Furry Feelings

Which type of person are you... the kind that would choose to be cold all the time, or the kind who would be hot all the time? It's funny because Jon and I are the exact opposite in this area, I love to be hot and he loves to be cold. I'm always bundled up and he's always trying to convince me to have a fan on or the window open, even in the middle of winter! We're learning to compromise ;) I really struggle with cold weather and the winter season... it's so dreary! But I will say, I get by with how fun it can be to dress for the cold! Turtlenecks, tall boots, soft sweaters, aaaand FUR! Fur coats are one of my favorite fads currently! They come in many colors and shapes, and can completely transform a simplistic outfit. This white one has a hood and is soft like a blanket! 

Gotta love a good band tee! This one is from Zara, and it's made out of the softest cotton. Everyone's always looking for a good band tee, so I've linked a few of my fav's below!

I love a good pair of ripped jeans! I have always wanted to make my own, and these were my first successful pair. There are a lot of ways people say you can do it, a knife, cheese grater, etc. I have tried multiple times before, and can never get the results I want. But with these, I found the trick! It's a lot more time-consuming, but I love how they turned out!

All you will need is a pair of scissors and tweezers. When choosing your jeans, the ones that work best are the jeans that aren't made with spandex. The strings will bunch up when creating your rips, and it doesn't look as good. To make your cuts, first choose the areas you want to have rips. make two horizontal rips that are parallel to each other, with enough space between them to make your holes. If you want, sometimes it is easier if you cut multiple horizontal cuts for a more messy look, plus it's easier to pull out the darker threads (this is the next step). As soon as you have your cuts made, you can take the tweezers and start tweezing out all of the vertical pieces of thread (usually the darker colored ones) that should slide right out of the middle section. That's basically all you need to know. If anyone is interested in a DIY post for ripping your jeans, let me know in the comments below and I'll put one together!  

New Year's Eve

What to wear, what to wear... I've almost settled on my New Year's outfit! Still deciding between these two ensembles. I call the first one "Velvet Midnight" and the second one "A Night of White". What will you be wearing? 

On one of my weekly trips to Target I stumbled upon this beauty of a dress that is part of the Who What Wear line. It comes in this icy grey color and also in black! 

I wish I had a whole closet full of leopard coats! This one is the perfect length for strolling around the Broadmoor tomorrow night :) I'm going with a smokey eye and sparkly purple wing to complete this look.  

Now to decide: Velvet or Fur.... I love that fashion in the 21st century always comes full swing at some point! Velvet and fur are two of my fav trends right now. For this look I went for the all-white approach, you know, to match the non-existent snow... Lulus has the greatest selection of white dresses right now! The one I have has a cute strappy back and high neckline. 

While I'm deciding on what to wear, tell me what you're wearing! I love seeing everyone's outfit choices for New Years. It's the opportunity to look like a star for an entire evening! To wear the dress you can't get away with at any other party because the amount of sequins could potentially blind someone. Add a photo of your outfit to the comments below, and have a happy new year!!
