Coat: c/o SheIn | Denim: J. Crew | Boots: c/o Dolce by Mojo Moxy | Bag: c/o Urban Expressions | Scarf: Haute Hijab | Rings: Kendra Scott | Sunnies: Nordstrom | Lipstick: MAC Ruby Woo

There are two trends I've always wanted to try but was hesitant because I didn't think I could pull it off - Leopard Coat & Over The Knee Boots. For reference I'm online 5'3 therefore I made my peace with never being able to pull off the OTK boot trend. I've tried on numerous pairs of Stuart Weitzman boots however never found one flattering for my petite frame. I basically gave up on OTK boots until I spotted the Anderson pair from Dolce by Mojo Moxy. This beautiful neutral pair works for me because the boot shaft is a bit slouchy and doesn't make me look like I have chicken legs. I never liked the super tight OTK boots and since I was short they would hit me at the thighs which is definitely not my style - or modest. This pair is perfect!! I wore them all around NYC and got so many compliments on them. The heel is a block heel which makes it super comfortable and I can always use an extra few inches. 

This leopard coat is a steal for less than $50! Since leopard is such a bold print I paired it with classic denim, neutral sweater and scarf, and these matching OTK boots. I'm borderline obsessed with the coat now and deciding I need to add a ladylike long leopard coat (like this one and this one) to my wardrobe! 

Thanks for stopping by!

While everyone is reaching for red this holiday season I prefer to add a little blush pink to my look. I paired my favorite black tuxedo trousers with a feminine bow blouse and blush faux fur coat for a holiday look. The vest adds a major dose of texture and perfect for the winter holiday season.

5 Holiday Things To Do in Baltimore



'Tis the season!! All of the holiday lights are up, the trees are lit, and there are a ton of activities going on in Charm City! Today I'm rounding my favorite events and things to do in Baltimore during the month of December!

1. German Christmas Village //until December 24
The German Christmas Village is located at Inner Harbor. The Christmas Village is a combination of an indoor and outdoor holiday market. There is food, shopping, entertainment, and so much to do!! My favorite thing is the hot cocoa and German pretzels! Be sure to check the hours and visit the village before it closes on Christmas Eve!

2. Pandora's Ice Rink // until January 15
The Ice Rink is located at Inner Harbor. I'm not a Olympic figure skater but I can manage to ice skate once a year during the holidays! It's on elf my favorite winter activities. I live so close to Inner Harbor that I can walk by and see the rink every night. It's open late and will be on display well into the New Year!

3. Dollar Days // December 9 & 10
Dollar Days weekend is when Baltimore attractions open their doors for free or $1 admission. This includes my personal favorites National Aquarium, American Visionary Art Museum, Christmas Village, Top of the World, and many more! See the full list here

4. The Miracle on 34th Street Light Display // until New Year's Day
This beautiful light display is located in Hampden. If you are into festive holiday lights - who isn't - be sure to make your way out to Hampden on 34th Street (between Keswick Road and Chestnut Avenue) to see the marvelous light display! You have the option of driving by or walking the block to take in all the festive holiday lights.


5. Monument Lighting // Thursday December 7 from 5pm to 8pm
This event takes place in Mount Vernon. At the event there is food, music, holiday activities, and fireworks. The lighting of the Monument is followed by spectacular fireworks display. I mostly go for all the yummy food from local vendors!!! Be sure to bring cash as many of the booths only take cash and not credit card! This event will be in 2 days so mark your calendars and don't miss out!

A plaid coat is must have item in any gal's closet. I convinced myself that I needed to buy a plaid coat this season but then I stumbled upon this pea coat in my own closet! I've had this coat since college and it was buried in the back of my close from my move last year. I'm so happy I kept it because it's such a classic coat that it could never go out of style. I normally layer it with denim and a sweater. This time around I paired it with my favorite camel midi skirt and booties for a little bit city/glam vibe. I love the subtle ruffles and plaid pattern of the coat. I've found an almost identical style in stock here. I also plan on pairing it with a flow midi dress and OTK boots for a winter night look! What is your favorite way of styling a plaid coat?

I'm still debating whether or not I need a long plaid coat added to my coat closet!!

I am currently obsessed with these bow booties and have been wearing them nonstop! They are super comfortable to walk around the city since it is a block heel. The olive color is perfect for fall and can be paired with denim, leggings, skirts, and midi dresses! I am also continuing my faux fur vest obsession (last seen here) It truly is the perfect layering piece for the transition of fall to winter. I'm currently on the hunt for a black version of this vest.

This look was paired with my ever so favorite JORD Hyde watch in Walnut & Black.
