Before I get into things, let me just gripe for a minute. The photos that I’m sharing with you today were taken in 20 degree weather on a Monday with snow on the ground and can you believe that by Thursday we had 60 degree weather and all the snow had melted? Actually, the snow melted by Wednesday because it rained overnight. Just my luck, right? I was up at the crack of dawn and at that time it was 13 degrees out and there was snow on the ground but such is the life of a blogger, right? In order to succeed, we must make serious commitments despite weather conditions. You hustle hard and in the end, it pays off. Right? Right.
Lately, I’ve been having issues with time management. I can’t seem to keep my head above water these days. I’m currently unemployed but why am I busier now than when I was working full-time? Not to mention my sleep habits, I go to bed late and then I’m either up early the next day or I sleep in too late. I’ve always been this way though, a total binge sleeper – always playing catch up. I know that I need to stick to a schedule but I think that my mind plays tricks on me and tell me that I can’t do it. Sigh. So my goal for 2017 is to change these habits so that I can be more productive. Anyone else experience this? Have any good tips?
Okay, so on to the outfit. I’ve had an ongoing collaboration with Sammy Dress for some time now and it’s a privilege to be able to choose outfits from their site regularly and to be able to experiment with the different pieces they offer.
My style is ever evolving and I love to change it up from time to time. This time around, I decided to go with this faux fur leopard print coat (currently sold out, but found a similar one, here) and this salmon lace-up sweater. The quality of the coat is better than expected and it has become one of my favorite pieces (I’ve already worn it a few times.) The lace-up sweater is also really pretty. It’s a one size fits all and I was nervous about this but I actually like the fit. It’s a bit oversized but not overly so. Who knew that I would be styling these pieces together? My first instinct was to style the coat with an all-black outfit which would totally work but I’ve been wearing so much black lately! It was definitely time to switch it up.

All in all, I’m happy with the way that I styled these pieces together – totally by chance I might add. But I love when I get a new piece and I can go through my closet to find different ways of styling them.
The ripped jeans are from H&M, booties are from Steve Madden- linked similar ones below and the ring is from The Styled Collection.
Have a great weekend lovelies!
