As soon as I saw this skirt in the Fall Pop Up Plus NY campaign I knew it would be mine. Faux leather (check), mid length (check), quilted patter (double check) those were all of my lust worthy points about this skirt. And boy did it now disappoint when I received it! Instantly I knew that I would be able to mix and match with so many of my fall/winter looks.

Exposing the versatility of your wardrobe is one of my main goals on this blog, so I decided to share two ways to style this skirt. One is dressier and perfect for work, the other look a bit more casual and perfect for the weekend and play. I’ve worn this skirt so much lately I am pretty sure it’s in my November favorite list.

What do you guys think? Do you like the dressier look or the casual look?

Timber...

Coat-c/o Eloquii, skirt-Talbots(similar), Boots-Forever21(old), Sunnies- Target






Every winter I look for new and intriguing outerwear to fulfill my coat fantasies. Honestly since it doesn’t get that cold here so I end up purchasing coats more for sport than for functionality. On those rare days when it is cold enough I don’t waste one second pulling out one of my beloved coats

When Eloquii dropped this plaid coat if literally fulfilled every outerwear need I had for the season (ha doesn’t my wallet wish that was true). I loved the plaid and the utilitarian feel of the coat. The shape and shape and design were very different from my other coats.  More importantly the extreme happiness I felt inside when I opened the coat let me know my decision was spot on.

Outfit thoughts: Y’all know I sometimes love an overabundance of print so I jumped right into the deep end and paired my jacket with a red plaid skirt in my closet. Initially I was overwhelmed by the mix of plaids but I realized that I liked to slight contrast and blend of the look. To anchor the look I went with a simple black turtleneck and boots.

So how do you feel about outwear? Do you love it or do you purely view it as a functional piece of clothing?

Winter Wear...

Jacket-Old Navy(Similar), Sweater-Old Navy, Jeans-Forever21, Boot-Old, Purse-Old





Ahhh winter is here upon us and so begins my love/hate relationship with this time of year. I am a summer baby to my core but there are so many things about the winter time that I love. The thick layers, rich colors, and coats are among my favorite cold weather favorites! The hate comes in the form of frigid temperatures, dark evenings and unnatural heat. Booooooo!

I vowed not to go crazy this winter season only adding things that I love or need to my wardrobe.  I found a few of my sweaters had seen better days so I have been indulging in a few over sized turtleneck sweaters that are easy to throw on with everything jeans, leggings even skirts. They are so soft and cozy that I even lounge in them. I picked this one up from Old Navy and was thrilled that matched my favorite fringe booties. It was such an easy, breezy look.  

What are you buying or not buying as the cold weather rolls in?

30plusstyle: 50 Shades of Gray

Dress-Old Navy (sold out online)( Similar), Purse-Vintage, Shoes-Michael Kors(Similar)








Hey y’all it’s time for another #30plusstyle post and this time we are discussing one of 2014 biggest color trends gray! Gray is a great option when you don’t want to wear black, but you don’t want to wear bright colors either. It’s also a fabulous color for neutral, monochromatic looks.  Though I love gray, I can’t help but gravitate towards my favorite comfortable sweatshirt dress when I think of the color and the items in my wardrobe.

This dress is my go to look when I want to be cute but comfortable while running errands around the city. On any Saturday when I’m off I like to explore the city by hitting up the farmers market, shopping and watching football. This dress gives me the option to be ready for most occasions on the weekend.  I threw it on this Saturday to check out a few of the new murals that have popped up in Birmingham, then to watch a football game.

30plusstyle is excited to welcome blogger Crystal Coons from Sometimes Glam as our guest blogger.

Sporty Skirt

Turtleneck-Old(Similar), Skirt-Eloquii, Booties-Old(Similar and Similar), Sunnies-Target






I love the sporty look that has blown up all over the place, but let me be honest I am not very sporty. I have always been the type to rather be immersed in pink and ruffles than in track pants. My mother often talks about how she had the hardest time convincing me that pants were practical for elementary school, sorry Mom. When I saw this look at Eloquii I thought it would be the perfect piece to attempt my hand at being sporty.  A perfect mix of femininity and sport I loved the geometric design and the split in the front. I quickly snatched this up on sale!

What do y’all think about the sporty trend?
