It is finally starting to feel like actual fall here in New York (yay!) which means, it’s only going to get colder from here. I put together my top favorite winter coats for this season. Investing in a cute cozy jacket is a must. I already own #3 and #6 and I am absolutely obsessed with them (more pictures to come). I am IN LOVE with #5. It gives that 70s French vibe that I am crazy about. #1 and #2 I think are perfect for work and you can either dress up or down. I would definitely invest in these pieces. Hope you guys enjoy them as much as I do! Happy shopping, xx

Challenging your Fashion Fears

Happy Friday everyone! Today I’m am going to talk about facing your fashion fears because this season I am challenging mine. I’ve always loved fashion but when it comes to going out of my comfort zone style-wise, I chicken out. I would either admire the piece from afar or buy it and end up never wearing it. So, I decided to face my fashion fears and did a few things that I will share with you down below.

Challenging Your Fashion Fears

Investing in Staples

Investing in staples if essentially when you are trying to get out of your comfort zone. If you have one piece that make you feel comfortable, put together, pretty, etc. BUY IT. Once you have that staple piece you will be able to pair it up with anything I can guarantee. For example, you can pair your favorite jeans with a blouse and heels, something you wouldn’t normally wear. Below are pieces that you can play with to create something new.

Sweater: H&M | Jeans: H&M | Earrings: H&M | Brown Bag: H&M | Heels: H&M | Graphic Tee: H&M | Skirt: Chic Wish (similar) | Black Bag: Zaful (similar) | Flats: Genuine People (similar)

Take Baby Steps

This is the best approach for someone who is not comfortable going out of their comfort zone when it comes to fashion. If there is a popular trend, color, texture, or cut, that I really want to try out, I will look for small ways to incorporate it into my existing wardrobe. Let’s say you love stripes, but the current trend of wearing striped pants or mixing pants is overwhelming, try wearing striped pants with a basic solid blouse. You can shop this favorite look below.

Just Do It!

My last tip to share is to just try it! How bad can it actually be? It isn’t the end of the world, not will you be outcasted from the world. It’s just clothes! Fashion is a way to express oneself through clothing. So if you feel like mixing stripes with polka-dots, by all means you do you! If you’ve been dying to wear that short black leather skirt with your biker leather jacket, rock it. You can take a look from Dia&Co who has a try Friday initiative that encourages people to try a new look they would not normally wear or they have been to afraid to try. For those who are looking to step out of their comfort zone, try once a week to wear an item that takes you out of your comfort zone!

Striped Puff Sleeve Top

Recently the weather has been incredibly warm and humid in New York and it hardly feels like fall weather. The sunny weather has been making me miss Greece more than usual. As I was looking through my old photos and pretending I was back on my favorite island, I found one of my favorite outfits and wanted to share it.  Enjoy!

Fall Essential Sweaters

I’m in major denial that summer is over! This whole year has flown by, it’s crazy! This time of year is my favorite for fashion when you start to mix summer favorites with new fall finds. The good thing about fall coming is you can break out your big comfy sweaters and layer them with pretty much anything. Here are some of my  favorite fall-must-haves sweaters for this season. Enjoy! x
