Ever since Kim Kardashian-West stepped out in a beautiful and feminine, tan duster coat during Paris Fashion Week in 2013, everyone has been trying to get their hands on a coat like hers. I scored this coat almost as soon as Kim walked out of the door in the casual outfit. Throughout the past couple of years, this coat has been one of my favorites. Unlike the common black or white coat, this camel color gives any look a hint of something special.

Your mom's closet is probably the last place you would go to find the perfect way to top off your outfit, right? Well, unless your mom is my mom. I stole this crocheted vest from my mom's closet and took it back to Chicago with me. (JK, she gave it to me) But still, how cool is this vest!? The vest doesn't fall into my usual style, but it is one of the coolest things I now own.
In the name of fashion, try something new and step outside of your personal boundaries. You never know what will happen and the new styles you will be able to pull off! Do you have anything in your closet that doesn't go with your usual attire? Try it on, mix, match it, and embrace it! I dare you!

We finally had our first snow (that actually covered the ground) in Chicago! Not that I'm celebrating or anything, but at least we aren't in a polar vortex like last year. I'm not really the best at winter fashion—meaning, I wear whatever I want to wear—whether it is 0 degrees or -12.
This outfit is one of my favorites because it's really made up of three simple pieces of clothing. I cut these white pants myself after staring at them for months in my closet. I was bored. They were just plain white pants, and they really did not do much for my figure. So one night I took a knife to them and I have since fallen in love with the renovated pair of pants.
While I don't advise wearing anything that exposes your skin during blizzard-like conditions (my pants), I definitely commend reinventing old clothing. Find a pair of pants, shirt, or blouse collecting dust in your closet and cut it, dye it, or pair it with something unexpected!
