Happy Sunday, y’all! The weeks are flying by; I can’t believe it’s already March!

(!!!)  In the mean time I have been keeping myself busy with blogging and such. The weather took a drastic turn this week so sadly I was back in sweaters, but I was able to pull out some of my favorite pieces so it wasn’t all a bummer! What were you all up to this week?! Let me know in the comment below along with any other questions, comments, or requests you may have for me. Wishing you all the best week ahead as always. With love, McKenz.

Styling My Twin Sister for a Week

As many of you know, I have a twin sister, Madison. Obviously we are not identical but some weeks she too wants to dress nicely. However, Madison often comes to me with a closet full of cute clothes saying she is unsure of what pieces pair together well. So this week I took advantage of her asking and decided that she would be in front of the camera rather than behind it for a change. She typically dresses very preppy. She loves Vineyard Vines and vests but likes to keep things pretty comfortable as well. In knowing this, I came up with five outfits for her to wear this week. Keep reading to check them out!

Monday- Madison specifically asked me to pick out an outfit that would look good with this denim ruffled top. I opted for some dark denim to add some contrast and some pearls to keep it extra classy and sophisticated. Her shoe selection to pair with this outfit in January wasn’t spectacular so I opted for some basic white Converse.

Outfit Details– shirt: Old Navy, jeans: Hollister, bracelet: KJP, watch: Fossil, necklace: Mom’s, shoes: Converse

Tuesday- On Tuesday a little dusting of snow was expected and Madison told me she wanted to wear her bean boots and this new red sweater that she had yet to wear since receiving it for Christmas. I figured a navy flannel with red in it would pair perfectly with the sweater and the navy blue on her boots. Her KJP bracelet tied the look together and we stuck with light wash jeans to break up the navy.

Wednesday– Today Madison asked specifically that I incorporate her olive-green rain booties into the look. I went with a matching olive-green vest and a coordinating white sweater and socks. She added a scarf for an extra layer.

Thursday- It wouldn’t be a typical week for Madison if I didn’t include some sort of Vineyard Vines or a quarter zip. I paired a navy Nautica quarter zip with her beloved Hunter boots and picked out a long sleeve for an added touch.

Outfit Details- quarter zip: Nautica/TJ Maxx, shirt: Vineyard Vines, jeans: Hollister, boots: Hunter, bracelet: KJP, watch: Fossil

Friday- I decided to let Madison get comfy today and paired her favorite red flannel with some basic leggings and riding boots. By throwing on a vest the outfit was instantly pulled together and she had an extra layer for the chilly start to the morning.

Outfit Details- flannel: American Eagle, vest: Kohls, leggings: Gap, riding boots: Kohls, watch: Fossil

Overall I am really pleased with the outfits I came up with for Madison and so was she. It truly goes to show that you can make an outfit from any sort of pieces as long as you have a vision and an eye. I would like to say a big thank you to Madison for letting me use her for today’s blog post and I certainly hope this won’t be the last time.

Be sure to leave a comment letting us know which look was your favorite as well as whether or not you liked this type of post. If you any other questions, comments, or requests be sure to leave them below as well. Have a fabulous day, my friends.
With love, McKenz.

Upgrade Your Outfit- Winter Edition

Hello, everyone! As almost of you know, fashion and styling are my favorite things to blog about and I love dressing for the colder months because there are so many different options, ways to layer, and fun pieces to work with so the outfit possibilities are endless. Today I’m going to be sharing a few ways on how you can spice up your everyday outfits and make the even more fabulous. Also, sorry for the indoor shots today, the weather was so crappy out so I had to make do with some pictures against my backdrop. Anyways, let’s get on into it!

sweater: TJ Maxx, necklace: Charming Charlies, watch: Kohls, jeans: Gap, socks: Kohls, booties: UGG

My first tip for you is to layer! Throw on a flannel over your basic graphic tee, pop a sweater over your flannel, or add a jacket to your favorite outfit. This is a simple way to add a variety of textures to your looks and bundle up for the chillier temperatures.

I can not stress enough how much socks change an outfit. Put on a pair that match your scarf or sweater and you instantly have an added something to your outfit.

Add accessories! Hats, scarfs, and purses effortlessly alter your outfit. I always throw one of these three on if I feel as though my outfit needs a little something extra or is lacking balance. Balance is key in styling the perfect outfit!

Lastly, add some jewelery. Necklaces and bracelets instantly draw attention to a specific area wich is why I love wearing jewelry. If I had my ears pierced I would totally go for some statement earrings or classic pearls to achieve a sophisticated look.

How do you add some extra pizzazz to your everyday outfits?! Let me know in the comments below along with any questions, comments, or requests you may have. I have been loving using these tips to spice up my outfits and hope you got some inspiration from this postnas well. Have a happy Saturday! With love, McKenz.
