Hello!

Happy New Year!!

It’s actually finally starting to feel like winter, and I am personally¬†very pleased with the cooler weather. This means no more difficulty getting ready.. and no shame in endless layering ūüôā

To make the winter¬†season even more amazing, I am proud to share that I’ve partnered with JORD Watches; a completely awesome company that makes cutting-edge, all-natural¬†trendy wood watches. ¬†To make things even more amazing, I was asked¬†to pick my favorite watch¬†from their current collection (which was way too difficult), and was sent their beautiful piece to wear. I’ve played¬†around with different outfits, adding this JORD time-piece as the perfect finishing touch¬†to many of my¬†looks. I can safely say the possibilities are endless.

When choosing my JORD watch, I specifically looked for one that I could see myself wearing many times, and would go with many outfits.  After much contemplation, I finally chose the Fieldcrest Dark Sandalwood Watch. Along with the beautiful colors catching my eye, I love the authentic look of the crafted wood.  The dark color palette deeply accentuates the natural material as well.

JORD is such¬†an¬†impressive company, and I’m so happy to partner in¬†sharing their timeless creations.

Definitely check out the JORD website! xx

Stripes & Snowflakes

snow5snow10snow2snow3snow4snow9snow8snow7snow11snow6

Hello everyone!

Hope your enjoying the first days of spring !! (& still snowy in NY…)

Since it’s still very chilly, I wanted to post another winter outfit. Today was all about patterns, especially stripes. I paired a warm, oversized navy knit sweater over this delicate white and navy pin-stripe button up. I love how it peeks out from the top and bottom of the sweater. To play with more stripes, I wore my favorite dark grey velvet-textured striped boot-leg jeans. They add an exciting detail to the outfit. I’m loving the striped pieces against each other;¬†pairing two patterns together, without being overwhelmingly crazy. For shoes, I wore my new cheetah platform slip-ons (which I will be wearing all spring). They not only compliment the outfit with the subtle cheetah print, but give me an inch or two:). For accessories, I added some of my favorite silver, turquoise and onyx rings. I also couldn’t resist from wearing my favorite vintage circle sunnies. To add a pop of color, I wore a deep red lip and kept it subtle on the eyes with a classic winged black liner. I also twisted a piece of hair and pinned it back to frame my face. (I love doing both sides of my hair, but for today I kept it to just one).

Wishing you an amazing rest of the weekend! x

Flannel & Fur

IMG_2612dtyfuguhiibefk

Hello everyone!

Today I was snowed in, and to entertain myself I took some pictures in the house for my Instagram account, @alllison.rae (be sure to follow me!) I took some pretty cool photos and wanted to share some with of my favorites with you!

I wanted to incorporate this comfy red and black plaid flannel, which I paired with these cool olive green pants. ¬†To add something to the look, I put on this awesome faux fur vest. ¬†It added the perfect amount of excitement to the picture. ¬†Because of the tom-boyish look I was going for with the buttoned up flannel, I couldn’t help but adding in my favorite baseball cap. (Go Yankees !!) To add a feminine touch, two of my favorite brass/gold rings did the trick! I ultimately decided to go with the birds-eye view picture (first) to post on my instagram. I thought the different angle was unlike anything i’ve posted so far.

Hope your week has been a good one! xx

Dark Lips & Plaid

Hello everyone!

Hope your weekend has been great!

Today, I wanted to find a way to add my own flare to this classic black blazer. To do so, I added this awesome edgy flannel underneath. ¬†Tucking it in on one side added some shape to the boxy shirt. ¬†The¬†plaid pattern gives a nice edge to the look and I love how the hunter green and navy blue look against the black blazer. I kept it simple and comfy wearing my favorite black skinnies, which will always be one of my top essentials. ¬†Adidas Superstars kept the outfit casual and sporty and i’m currently obsessed with them. ¬†I also added some of my favorite silver rings and a cool tattoo choker. ¬†To make the look sharper, I wore a darker burgundy lip, and kept it neutral on the eyes. ¬†For the finishing touch, I added my vintage horn-rimmed circle glasses.

Hope you enjoyed this look! I had so much fun shooting it ūüôā xx

Snowy Velvet

Hello everyone!

Hope this week has started off well for you:)

Today, my area received yet another snowy winter storm. ¬†It seems as though every monday we get lots of snow (it’s been about 4 mondays in a row)… Regardless of the freezing¬†weather conditions, I was determined to share my outfit!

I’m in love with these gorgeous blue velvet pants, so couldn’t wait to pair them in a look. ¬†To complement the pants, I added a simple grey turtleneck. ¬†Solid turtlenecks are an essential versatile piece, especially in the cooler months. ¬†The light-wash denim jacket worked well¬†against¬†the textured velvet pants. ¬†I like pairing different fabrics¬†together to create unique looks. ¬†For shoes, my black chelsea boots added a chicness to the outfit. ¬†A¬†simple¬†black, fringed scarf pulled the look together. ¬†To finish off, my¬†peppered-grey knit hat added warmth and style¬†to¬†complement the solid black scarf and boots. For accessories, I kept it simple with some of my favorite silver and onyx rings.

Wishing you a great rest of the week! x

The Wool Coat

Hello!

Hope everyone’s week is going well!

This past Sunday, I again spent the day in the city. ¬†After finishing my class at FIT, ¬†I was in need of a cozy cafe to do some work. ¬†I recently discovered this adorable place¬†with delicious coffee that i’m now obsessed with. ¬†Seven Grams Caffe is the most perfect place to grab an authentic cappuccino or hot drink of your choice, take a seat, and enjoy a moment of relaxation in the big city.

For my outfit I wanted to be comfortable, so this new, pepper-grey oversized v-neck sweater was a must. ¬†I paired it with my trusty black jeans for a put-together look. I recently went on a hunt for a wool coat (i’m seeing the trend everywhere), so¬†once I found this black Ralph Lauren one, my search was over. ¬†Black was perfect for my wardrobe, since most of my winter palette consists of grey, black and navy colors. ¬†Since i’m more on the petite side, this coat was the perfect length – not touching my toes, but not at my hip line. ¬†For my shoes, my black leather ankle¬†boots added a chic look to the outfit. ¬†The treaded bottom also added a little bit of edge. Along with it being pretty cold, and just generally loving hats, I had to add my grey beanie. It kept me warm, while being stylish. To add some accents, I added some of my favorite rings to finish it off.

Hope you have a great rest of the week! xx
