WID | ZARA LEATHER JACKET AND WASHED JEANS

Happy May, guys! If you’ve been following me on snapchat (@WHENINDOUBTBLOG), you know leather jackets are pretty much my second skin on the weekends. They’re all I wear outside of the office because everything goes with a good piece, whether it be genuine leather or high quality pleather. When I first saw this blue Zara leather jacket, my face literally turned into one of those heart-shaped eyes emojis, haha! The color is absolutely gorgeous and unique, and I especially love the cropped length. It’s light, fun, and perfect for Spring. The best part is, it won’t break your bank – it’s made of buttery soft pleather for a highly reasonable price ($69,90!). Hope you guys enjoyed this casual outfit & a glimpse of my typical off-duty look!

WID | RUFFLE BLOUSE & PLEATED LEATHER SKIRT

Hello friends, it’s been a while! 🙂 Just wanted to share a quick outfit we shot a few weeks ago. If you recall from my “SPRING 2016 TRENDS SPOTLIGHT: ALL ABOUT THEM SLEEVES” post, I was super excited to try some of those styles in real life. You saw the ruffle neckline last time, today I want to show you how wearable stacked ruffle sleeves can be.

Sometimes it’s easy to go trendy-crazy or follow fads blindly if one doesn’t have a clear knowledge of their own personality, style, or body type. The thing I love about these sleeves trends, however, is that they can be very easily and subtly incorporated into your closet. Take white shirts for example – they are closet essentials and I trust you all have at least one in your wardrobe. In this ruffle blouse, we’re simply giving basic white shirts a fun update with slightly more voluminous ruffles in a stacking structure on the sleeves. You can wear it as a statement piece by dressing up your favorite pair of denim, or pair it with a conservatively structured bottom such as my pleated leather skirt to make it office-friendly. As much as I love to dabble in the hottest street style trends, the defining element of my style always comes back to classic pieces, hence my silver oxfords (classic style, fun color 😉 ) to complete the look.

WID | HIGH NECK RUFFLE SHIRT

Happy hump day, folks! Just wanted to come up here and share a quick outfit with you. This high neck ruffle shirt has such fun and flowy details, you can easily pair it with a simple mini skirt like I did here, or a pair of skinny jeans for a more casual look. New York has finally entered spring (woohoo!), which means temperature ranges from 40-60s throughout the day. To stay warm, I also draped a favorite coat of mine over the shoulders and wore a felt floppy hat.

I hope you all enjoy this post, and have a wonderful rest of the week!

WID | LAST WINTER NEUTRALS

Happy March, friends! We shot this outfit several weeks back, the morning after Storm Jonas hit NYC. I’ve always been a big fan of dressing in neutrals in the wintertimes and was never one to shy away from winter whites (yes, it’s 2016, you CAN wear white pants after labor day!), so I wanted to take this opportunity & blend into the winter wonderland around us 🙂 Because this faux fur coat always makes me look like a Big Bird, I wanted to keep the bottom slim. These SW Highland boots are absolute perfection – they fit like gloves and instantly make your legs look much longer. I’m really hoping this will be my last winter outfit post. Can’t wait to start sharing my spring closet with you guys!

WID | DAY TO NIGHT WITH PLAID BLAZER

Hello friends! It was so nice and warm this weekend (yep, 55 degrees feels like summer after the arctic weather we got last week) that I could finally put away my boots and let the ankles peak out a bit. As you know, I like to stick to classic pieces such as this plaid blazer from Alice + Olivia, which I paired with a black ribbed turtleneck sweater and white jeans. I can easily bring this outfit from daytime to evening drinks with friends by slipping into these cute M.Gemi Archetto heels. I’m a huge fan of M.Gemi not only for their stylish & affordable shoes, but their customer service is by far the best I’ve ever received from any brand. If you ever decide to give the Italian brand a try, make sure you use code “cindy060” to save $40 from your first pair! Trust me, your shoe closet will thank me 😉
