I’m back on my local news station this morning talking about all things winter coats (watch my segment here). And since I’ve literally been doing all things My Kind of Lovely lately I thought it was best to share the exact pieces I’ll be sharing on the news from our most recent winter photoshoot! All these pieces aren’t online yet, but if you email us at email@example.com we can arrange for an order.
Now we all know I love my statement outerwear! I’m not really a black pea coat kinda girl but give me a fun print or a shag material and now we’re talking! You don’t have to go as bold as my leopard coat but something like a more subtle black & grey buffalo check is the perfect piece to add a little something new to your outerwear choices this winter.
Faux Fur Vest:
Faux Fur vests aren’t new to the scene but they are definitely a winter wardrobe staple. They now come in lots of awesome variations from cuts, to fur types, to shapes and sizes there’s literally a vest for everyone! They’re perfect for layering and are super easy to wear with just a simple long sleeve tee underneath.
One of my favorite, most worn, coats are lighter weight winter coats that are easy to layer under. I hate the bulky feeling you get when pairing layers under a big winter coat so the trick is (for warmer winter days) layer under a lighter weight winter coat. One of my favorites is a long sleeve with an open button down over it. Or even just for the days when you wear your thick sweaters these coats definitely come in handy.
Ponchos are the best because you’re basically just wearing a blanket wrapped around you in public. What’s better than that in the cold winter months? (Ummm, nothing.) They’re super easy to wear and can be dressed up and worn over a LBD, black tights and heels or even way dressed down over jeans and a tee shirt. I’m kind of thinking ponchos are the next best thing!
Happy Friday! Things have been quite crazy in the My Kind of Lovely department so unfortunately my blogging has gotten a little behind. So I’m terribly sorry for the slower posting lately! I’m hoping to get caught up this weekend and share some updates on what we’ve been doing and what we’ve got coming up though so stay tuned!
I actually wore this fun red, white & blue outfit unintentionally for Veterans Day! I love a stripe & a plaid together and red, white & blue is always appropriate so this turned out to be a super easy and festive outfit. Not to mention I love this oversized stripe top from Old Navy. Thinking I need it in a few more colors, especially since they’re on sale!
Today the Bloggers Who Budget ladies are back and are partnering with Lyst for some fun holiday style inspiration! Obviously perfect for the season and Lyst is a great platform to not only save some of your online favorites in one place but they also send you sale notifications for when an item you’ve saved goes on sale! The budget girl’s favorite feature!
Today’s outfit is two of my absolute favorite pieces from last season that I couldn’t wait to break out for this post! Unfortunately these exact pieces aren’t available anymore (except for my Vera clutch) but I’ve created a Lyst of some awesome similar options! Some of which are on sale! (You can check out my Lyst here.)
I’m definitely a winter white supporter and right now I can’t get enough of all things grey & white! We just shot all new winter wear for My Kind of Lovely last weekend and the whites & greys were by far my favorite looks of the day. We’re officially transitioning from fall into winter & holiday at the shop so I’m kind of obsessing over all the chunky knits, shearling vests and this long cozy sweater! Unfortunately it’s not available yet (local ladies, get first pick at our Mingle & Jingle this Sunday!) but we’ll be launching all new fall & winter online soon! So stay tuned!
Today I’m super excited to share about a local startup with a big dream, THROW, an adorable pillow company that gives back. THROW stands for Together Helping Reach Our World. It is a pillow company built on a dream and moving with a purpose. With each purchase through THROW, you help provide a bed to a child in need. Cute pillows that help provide a bed to a child in need? Who doesn’t love that? And my favorite part? It’s located right here in East Tennessee!
If you’ve been following along for a while I did a fun little series of Gifts that Give Back last Christmas which I really loved working on. I thought this would be the perfect way to start that back up! If you’re doing any early Christmas shopping yet, these pillows and pillow cases are perfect! I need a set of the pillow cases but they’re all so cute I just can’t choose a favorite! Umm Bed Hair Don’t Care?! So cute!
They also do adorable pillows with different patterns, quotes and fabrics that make them so fun and unique! My “She Believed She Could So She Did” pillow is one of my favorites! This specific one isn’t available anymore but there’s always something new so definitely keep up with them on instagram and their website for new arrivals! (And if you have a doodle, you need this pillow!)
THROW is also launching a Kickstarter campaign and I’m honored to help them promote it! The Kickstarter launches on Friday so you can’t quite check it out just yet, but stay tuned, I’ll share the link when it has launched! I’m so happy to see all their success and hope you love this brand as much as I do!
