THE LOOK….Bright & Bold Winter Favorites #FW19

Winter Favorites….For the Win! 2019

Happy New year!! I hope your new year is getting off to a fabulous start! This new year started on a relaxing note for us…we flew in the from a holiday trip to Los Angeles on the early evening part of New Year’s Eve and had a very tired but cozy evening in with the family….I used to absolutely hate the idea of staying in on New Year’s…but it’s actually not so bad if you are with the ones you love… 🙂

Anyway, now that the new year is in full swing and we are back on the East coast again, it’s time to think about how to survive the next few months of winter & braving the cold weather in style!

Here are some of my favorite items for the winter season & many are currently on sale….

Teddy Coat ( I love the cozy look of a Teddy Coat & couldn’t resist buying a new one this year….)

Here are some of my favorites:

Faux Fur Teddy Coat $138 / Red Cropped Coat $136

Plush Pink Bomber $35.99 / Madime Sherpa Coat $284

Bright & Bold Sweaters ( because wearing too much black ends up putting me in a bad mood…..here are some knits in bright colors & bold animal patterns to add some cheer!)

Animal print sweater $75 (similar HERE) / Zebra print sweater $98 / Puff sleeve sweater $78 / Cheetah print sweater $208 / Ruffle trim sweater $198 /

Jeans ( I know….kinda boring but I’m obsessed & can’t seem to get enough)

Western Style Booties (I fell in love with my studded western style boots this season & have been wearing them endlessly & a little too much, but they are such a cool & casual style that goes with all my looks….see some other versions here in different price points)

Studded booties $83 / Red booties $106 / White buckle booties $419 / Silver booties $525 / Suede western style boots $402

Bright colored handbags! There’s nothing like a great handbag to put you in a good mood and right now I’m loving all the new bright colored styles & PRINTS. See some of my favorites below……

The Look You Need For The Holidays- “ROCK N ROLL SEQUINS” #Holidaystyle

Happy November! It’s hard to believe that 2018 is winding down & there are only 6 weeks left of this year! I’m getting excited for the holidays & the chance to get a little dressed up for different events. This season I’ve been really feeling a Disco meets Rock N Roll vibe with lots of “glam & glitter” and my favorite….sequins! I thought it would be fun to put together an assortment of disco inspired outfits for the party season in different price categories….no matter what your budget is there’s always something cute to find to get dressed up in.

I generally like to keep my holiday looks on the casual side and to mix them with some edgier accessories like a studded handbag or some sleek rock n roll style boots. But it’s always fun to play with different looks especially when you have a fun party (or 2) to attend!

Wishing you a happy & healthy holiday season with lots of style, fun & glamour!

Here are some of my favorite looks for the fall/winter holiday season…..

YOUR AFFORDABLE STYLE GUIDE FOR THE LAST DAYS OF SUMMER #endlesssummer #styleguide

Hi again! So…..this summer has been going so fast & I’ve been sooooo busy between working, parenting & our hectic city lifestyle in general that I’ve been a bit MIA on the blog lately.  But even though its almost the end of August, I’m still so excited about styling my summer looks & looking for great new sale items because it feels like summer’s just not over yet!

There’s still 2 more weeks till Labor Day weekend… so lets make the most of it! My family and I are finally getting some time to relax & escape the city and we are so excited to get in some more beach days & pool time & fun in the sun. Lately I’ve been searching for some cute styles that can take you through a long fun day at the beach or pool & then out to dinner and drinks….

This is a great time of year to look for the styles you may have been coveting all season that could currently be on sale or adding great new items you can wear now & also in the begging of the next summer season. I always am looking for a great bargain & love finding things to add to my wardrobe this time of year….because lets face it, fall is just not as fun!

This summer I’ve been really into dresses and bright colors. I like to mix and elegant look with something more edgy and have also been getting back into graphic t-shirts again. For summer I tend to wear more simple styles but also to have fun with my outfit choices. Fashion should always be fun and make you feel good about yourself!

Here are some of my favorite looks for this end of the summer season:

(Most styles are on sale!)

SPRING 2018: HOW TO ADD NEW COLOR TO YOUR WARDROBE THIS SPRING

Wow! I can’t believe it’s already May! I’ve been a bit missing in action on the site lately with so many changes & so much going in my life lately….but…….I’m very excited to get back into the spring season & to be writing again here on Rock Paper Sequins. It’s been a looooong & cold winter here on the East coast & it’s finally starting toward up & feels like spring is finally in the air.

It’s so fun to be in the city this time of year, everyone is so excited to be outdoors and there’s such an amazing collective energy and optimism on the streets and in the parks and the cafes too, it’s contagious!

Anyway, I’ve been anticipating this season for a while and excited to start wearing all the new spring threads. One thing I’m really excited about is adding more color into my wardrobe after many months of wearing darker colors.

What are your favorite colors to wear this spring?

I’m currently so excited about: PINK, YELLOW & LILAC
