#WWAW: Parental Advisory Warning

So winter temps  and weather are still here and unfortunately they aren’t going anywhere any time soon, so PARENTAL ADVISORY WARNING: Winter is a straight up motherf&*ker so don’t put your coats and scarves away anytime soon.  Snow and cold temps are in the forecast here at home in Chicago and will be following me to New York City, NY where I will be spending the week for work.  So let’s take a final look at what are great pieces to keep you warm for now and will be great building staples to usher in spring with ease.

What’s the Inspiration:  Drawing from the fall 2014 runways and incorporating the trend of mixing fabrications and textures.  So much leather and fur (both real and faux) that  littered the runways that just oozed dreamy comfort.


Why it’s Relevant:  Staying true to my style mantra of Edgy, Comfy, Chic was made extremely simple with fall 2014’s key trend of mixing fabrications such as leather and fur.   I added my personal touch to these fabrications by mixing in spring’s key denim trend of high waisted jeans and sporty footwear.  I don’t know about you but I’m embracing a spring/summer that is all about comfortable footwear.  Seriously, who knew this was ever going to be a reality in fashion so don’t ask any questions and just embrace this.


Where to Wear it:  This has become my weekend uniform and I bask in it’s glory.  It’s the perfect ensemble for brunchin’ it up like champs at Prasino in Wicker Park or checking out the Christopher Wool exhibit at the Art Institute of Chicago.  The perfect combination of edge and trend while all serving the all important purpose of keeping you warm during this long ending bout of winter snow and temps.
