"A lady should be two things, classy and fabulous."
-Gabrielle "Coco" Bonheur Chanel



Greetings everyone! The weather has been acting rather strange lately! We've had snow and mild weather all in the same week! Due to the nature of my tardiness (for class), I decided to throw together some basics that would still be season appropriate and comfortable even in this sudden spike in degrees!   

I am a big fan of peplum! It has a feminine yet unique look that attracts me, no matter what the piece is! I feel that every girl should own a least one peplum top and/or dress, you can never go wrong with peplum. Even with an outfit as simple as mine, you can add a girly flair to your fit without doing too much! Also, a lady should own a pair of black, tan, and navy pants. Sometimes when I don't feel like getting dressed, I find myself in a dilemma because I don't want to wear sweatpants or leggings. Neutral colored pants are easy to coordinate with almost anything!

Gloomy Paradise.

Hello Pretties! Today, it was pretty gloomy in DC but at least it wasn't as cold as it's been! I threw a quick outfit together this morning, only to realize that it was raining; needless to say my coat does not have a hood! Nonetheless, my day went very well today! Enjoy!

January Chills.

Greetings! I hope everyone on the East Coast is bundled up and staying warm, I think it's safe to say we've been experiencing quite a drop in the temperature lately! Although there isn't any snow in the forecast (much to my dismay!), DC has been extremely cold lately. I honestly don't enjoy heavy coats or layers, but I have no choice unless I want to end up sick! This is my second time wearing this coat! I fell in love with it in the store and bought it Thanksgiving weekend. I hope you guys enjoy it as much as I do!

I wanted to get a close-up on my accessories! I have been adoring this briefcase bag and also another that I will feature soon! Since I love clutches so much, this bag operates nicely as such or as a shoulder bag, should I decided to add the strap back.
