Leopard Coats and Kicking Boots!

FINALLY, it is cold enough here in Cali to put on a cool coat and rock some fishnet tights with boots. I do not know about you guys, but I have a huge crush on outerwear and probably own way too many jackets, just like my sneakers. This season, besides faux fur, I love a fun leopard print. This one is from J.Crew and right now is totally on sale at 30% off! My other top picks are from ASOS and Topshop. You are even seeing leopard fur on army jackets, and in the linings to add a bit of a funk.

Double Leopard Topcoat

I have also kind of fallen in love with hats this season. I’m usually in a baseball cap or my favorite straw summer hat, so I decided to branch out and purchase a fun beret this season along with a lieutenant hat. I have to say, it totally makes for a fun gift for the on trend girl, and adds a hint of cool girl factor to a look. The one above is only $40 at Nordstrom. If you are feeling frisky, their Brass Plum section has all kinds of bright colors.

I have partnered up with Daniel Wellington this season, who offer some of the best timepieces out there. Not only that, they have all kinds of amazing deals and bundles that they offer. The price point is great, and makes for the perfect gift. From now until December 31st, when you use my code “SUZIG” at checkout, you will get an additional 15% off. Oh, and there are additional discounts, free shipping and returns, and gift wrapping. I mean, it is a one stop shop for everyone on your list!

Sporty t-shirt dress

I also have to say, that the sporty T-shirt dress is here to stay, so why not continue to wear it by layering it the way I did here. Both adidas and Champion have my favorites. The way to make it funky for this season, is definitely with a coat like this and some jazzy fishnets. I love tights, and for me, I always try to find pairs that make my look sparkle.

Lace-up boots

Yep, these boots were made for walking, dancing, and just about anything this winter. If I am not in kicks, I turn to block style boots, and these have that utility feel to them with a bit of feminine edge. These are from Sam Edelman at Nordstrom, but you can find some amazing deals as well on Zappos. My other favorites right now are Timberlands!

Sneakers, Trends

Holiday Kicks Gift Guide

Boom, the boot is back and stronger then ever. If you are looking for a sneaker for those kick lovers out there, I have you covered. From super cool to girly, you are sure to find one for everyone out there. I have long been a fan of the Nike Air Force One and these military inspired boots are outrageous and funky! If you need something unique, these are them for sure. They come in a handful of colors too!

For the retro lover, these throwback vintage inspired Nike’s are legit. They just relaunched and these are selling out quick. I love to pair mine with a simple denim and cool jacket.

For the exercise queen, these adidas iniki running shoe feels like your running on air. I love how they mold to your foot, and I literally can run, cross train, and wear them to yoga!

For the adidas originals fan, and for the more girly girl, pastel kicks are perfect. I have been wearing gazelle’s since I was young, and these baby pink pair are not only super affordable, but any girl will love these. I mean they even go with a cute dress!

If you are looking for a classic, then look no further then the checker Vans. These became an instant must have sneaker in the skate world years ago, and they have never gone out of style! Also, these too are a great affordable gift.

Last, for the cold weather, why not try the Nike Roshe two knitfly hi kick. It is made for the colder weather and is super unique. Plus it is on steep sale right now, so run and pick a pair up for the holidays!

Traveling in Style During the Holidays!

Well, the holidays are here, and if you are like me, that means planes, planes, and automobiles. I am off today for Las Vegas, then taking off again on Wednesday for an NBA game, and will be flying back on turkey day, followed by a turnaround right back to Los Angeles on Friday. Yes, this is the time that traveling can be super stressful on us, but I am here to give you my simple tips to stay sane all the way through Jan. 1st!

Traveling in style with this sweater

My number one for traveling is being comfortable, cozy, but yet fashionable. Let me be honest, I love my sweats, but for the plane, I like to make sure that I feel put together. You never know who you are going to meet. For me, I am all about a great sweater like this one from Smythe, available at Hiptique. It is soft, and also keeps me warm on the flight.

My favorite travel sweaters are below.

B.P. Sweater

I also like to wear a simple pant or legging with a pair of sneakers. I hate having to take off too many layers in security, and sometimes boots are hard to get on and off. Also, I always try to keep my bags to a carry on, and then bring a second tote that I can store my computer in. I know that can be hard with bulky pieces, but if you color coordinate your wardrobe it makes it easy to get through a weekend with just a few pieces. I am obsessed with the Boat and Tote from L.L. Bean, and I have linked a few other of my favorites that have a ton of room!

BP Black Leggings

Last, my skin takes the biggest hit when I travel, even if it is just a quick flight, so I always bring a few items that I know will keep me hydrated. Also, a huge water is always in hand and some great snacks that will keep me from eating anything bad at the airport bar or in flight. I love simple packs of nuts and a good protein bar. I try not to drink alcohol on a flight, as it dehydrates me more. I live for the following products when I am flying.
