Although I don’t blog very much about fashion or beauty, I’m actually a huge fan of fall and winter fashion – which is something that I really didn’t get to experience or appreciate growing up and living on an island (Hawaii) for the majority of my life. These days, I find myself warming up to subscription boxes such as Ipsy’s glam bag because it allows gals like me (who don’t know shit about makeup) exposure to what’s out on the market right now. It’s a way to learn and experiment – find out what I actually like and/or give a shit about.
When it comes to fashion, I just want to be comfortable! And, cute! That’s it! I don’t accessorize unless it’s necessary either – I’ll wear a scarf if the weather requires one. My style is fairly “classic”. I wear a lot of basics. My favorite pieces are often leggings, skater skirts, oversized sweaters, and boots or flats. With that being said, I really do believe this time of year is my time to shine!
My all-time favorite store is Modcloth, so, of course, I thought it would be so much fun to put together my favorite warm-weather pieces from their website. Of course, I will include a link to everything as well!
1. Winterberry Tart Coat in Burgundy
Size: XS – 3X
What I love about this coat is the very flattering silhouette, and of course, the gorgeous burgundy tone. I think this would look fantastic with riding boots!
2. Heed Your Warming Fleece-Lined Leggings in Navy
Size: S/M or L/XL
Your winter wardrobe cannot be completed without a pair of fleece-lined leggings. Get a high quality pair because you’ll be wearing nothing but these for 3-5 months!
3. Just the Fortuitous Cardigan in Grey
Size: XS – 4X
This absolutely adorable cropped cardigan would go perfectly with a high-waisted cotton blend skirt.
4. Sugarplum Scary Sweater
Size: XS – 4X
If you’re a bit edgy like I am. 😛
5. Recline the Invitation Hoodie
Size: XXS – 4X
I really love this piece a lot. I’ve actually got a similar heavy knit grey top with lacing below the neckline.
But, OMG, in hoodie form?!?! Say no more.
6. Nocturnal Yourself Out Pajama Set in Foxes
Size: S – XL
OK – this is by far the most cute holiday pajamas set I have EVER seen in my entire life.
7. Fur the Win Thigh Highs in Brown Fox
Size: ONE SIZE
O.m.f.g – is there anything more I can say here?
8. Custom Cocoa Cardigan in Charcoal
Size: XXS – 4X
I think finding a good quality, long length, soft, and comfortable cardigan is just as important as finding the right coat for the season. I generally wear a cardigan under my coat and is often what’s visible if I take my coat off. I will sometimes unzip my coat when I get on the train to prevent myself from sweating and I think this cardigan will add a nice detail to my outfit.
9. Chillin’ Haute Scarf in Red
$20.99 // 30% off!
This is such a beautiful classic plaid scarf. It screams Christmas!
10. Saturday at the Stables Convertible Gloves in Oatmeal
$13.99 // 30% off!
It is so important to keep your hands warm during the cold months! Wearing mittens or gloves was very difficult to adjust to when I moved here. I found that convertible gloves such as these are super convenient!
I think what I love most about Modcloth is the range of sizes. As a plus size gal myself, I like seeing that most of the clothing on the site can fit anyone – regardless if you’re a size XS or a 4X. That’s awesome, and that’s how it should be everywhere.
