1. What 3 closet staples are must-haves for a city gal?
Chic flats, a nice leather bag and an assortment of jackets and coats!

2. How can you wear leather in a flirty and feminine way?
I like wearing leather accents and featuring only one leather piece in an outfit. Keep it simple and dress it up with some pearls or a pop of color.

3. Leather leggings or moto jacket and why?
Moto jacket for sure - you can wear it all year long (leather leggings don’t get along with summer too well)!

1. How would you describe your personal style?
I’ve had this question come up MULTIPLE times, and I never quite know how to answer it. The only word that seems to describe it is eclectic - “deriving ideas, style or taste from a broad and diverse range of sources.” I’m attracted to SO many different stylesm and I try to incorporate them all into my looks and making them my own. I love pulling from different ideas, adding unexpected touches, and I’m never afraid to try new trends. So I think the only way to describe my personal style is eclectic and ever-changing!

2. If you could shop any celebrities closet who would it be and why?
That’s SUCH a hard question, but it would have to be Olivia Palermo! Everything (and I mean everything) she wears is just perfect! Also, I’ve been obsessing over everything Jessica Alba wears lately! Her street style is just awesome!

3. What is the a creative way to wear leather without resorting to a moto jacket?
I’m ALL about leather boots! Whether they’re ankle booties, knee highs, over the knee, flat, heeled, whatever they are - boots are instant outfit makers!

Helmut Lang Gala Sheath Dress: $229 Retail $495 / YSL Tribute Platform Sandals: $299 Retail $895 / Alexander Wang Rocco Satchel Bag: $500 Retail $850

How do you stay true to your personal style while dressing for the winter? 
The cold can definitely put a damper on my style sometimes. I love to wear dresses and skirts, but when it’s 4 degrees outside, I have to make practical style decisions. No matter what time of year it is, I always like to maintain a mixture of super feminine pieces with a little rock n’ roll edge. I love the mixture of hard and soft when it comes to pairing prints and pieces, and I opt to wear a lot of wedges, printed/colored denim, and of course, sweaters. Color is key in the winter - the weather can be awfully dreary at times.
What winter accessory can’t you live without and why?
I need to have leather - a coat, pants, shoes. My favorite purchase this year has been this leather and wool jacket I bought at Forever 21. It has a motorcycle element to it, but the wool makes it a true winter coat. 
image
What’s the most important thing you look for when shopping for a coat?
When shopping for the perfect winter outerwear, I want a coat that not only keeps me warm, but to stand alone outside of what I’m wearing underneath. I know I’ve found the right one when I try it on and feel like I can wear it with a pair of jeans… and feel dressed up. I’m drawn to coats that have a formal wear aspect to them, especially the hardware (like double breasted coats).
Who is your cold weather style inspiration?
Without a doubt, Alexa Chung is my favorite fashion muse - any season. She has a way of conveying her personality with fashion that is just… inspiring. Besides, she’s British… Can you blame me for admiring a well-dressed Brit?

What is your take on wearing heels in the winter? Yay or nay - and also, why?

Heels during the winter are a total YAY! I think heels are perfect for any season to be truly honest. It can dress up any outfit and put a feminine touch to your look.
Does your personal style change from season to season? If so, how?
I stay pretty consistent with my personal style. I love the cold weather months more than the sunnier seasons because it allows me to layer, layer, layer! 
image
What winter accessory can’t you live without?

I can’t live without my scarfs, hats and gloves. Being that I am from NYC, it gets pretty cold - sometimes people don’t get to see what I’m actually wearing so I dress up my coat with fun hats, scarfs and funky gloves! 
What are your top three blizzard-proof beauty products you can’t live without?
It’s so hard to pick only three, but I can’t live without:
- L’oreal Voluminous Mascara (Even when I’m not wearing makeup, I always have mascara on)
- Boscia Daily Hydration Moisturizer (You should ALWAYS moisturize your skin, especially during the winter)
- Tinted Lipgloss (To add color to my lips) 

Fashion bloggers and tomorrow’s Posh Party hosts - Kathleen of Kat Walk SF and Caroline of Taste Bluebook - are cozying up to winter’s hottest trend: over-the-knee boots (OTK boots)! Read up on how these stylemakers take this glamorous look and wear it for daytime - along with other tips to stay fashionable through the winter. If you can’t get enough of their style, be sure to join them for their City Chic Posh Party tomorrow night!

1. What are your top wardrobe staples for San Francisco living?

The weather in San Francisco is unpredictable to say the least. My wardrobe choices must include a chance of a 30 degree temperature variance. The key to dressing for unpredictable weather is layering. From your foundation pieces to your outerwear, SF style is all about layering it on.

For me, this means a cami and knee-high socks to start. These pieces are crucial to staying warm and comfortable. From there, I add on a skinny jean, a chunky knit or silky woven, flat boots, a neutral scarf and a tailored coat. The key to true San Francisco style is to dress for any occasion and weather - and also, be prepared to add to it or take it all off at anytime!

2. How do you style OTK boots for a casual daytime look?

OTK boots can definitely be a challenge to style, especially for a daytime look. For this trend, it is always best to stay on the safe side, which means tucking a skinny jean into an OTK boot or wearing a knee length skirt to offset the height of the OTK boot shaft. Keep your daytime OTK look conservative and you will be good to go!

3, If you could shop one person’s closet, who would it be and why?

I die for Sophia’s closet (@sophiaac)! From the classic Burberry trench to the white mini Pashli, she has got everything in stock that the “city chic” lady simply must have. Her style is timeless and classic with a side of sass (my specialty).

1. How do you cozy up to the OTK boots trend while staying warm?

In the winter, I’m all about layering. It’s just too cold outside and too warm inside to dress only for one temperature - no matter how short your commute in a cold car might be! I never knew I was missing out on over-the-knee boots until I finally got them. Their versatility makes them the ultimate layering piece. My default is skinny jeans or spandex and boots all winter long - why not cover up a little more leg for enhanced style AND added warmth?

2. Where do you look for style inspiration?

Instagram is so full of stylish individuals - bloggers and non-bloggers alike. It’s a great way to get a quick overview of someone’s style before trying to dig through a sea of blogs. IG also the added benefit of being an outlet for those who don’t blog but do share their style.

3. How are you refreshing your closet for the new year?

I recently read an awesome article that talked about “new” essential wardrobe items. We all know that every woman needs a pair of dark wash skinny jeans (even if you only wear them with boots, like I do), a basic black blazer and the always-classic trench. While these closet essentials are staples for a reason, there are a few simple swaps that can add a bit of flavor and personality to your closet.

While I kicked up my workwear collection with the addition of a leather pencil skirt, I like the idea of swapping out one of my basic silk button-down shirts with a loungewear-inspired (silk pajama) top or swapping out the tried-and-true ballet flat for a metallic oxford.

Since spotting Kate Spade’s feathered skirt, we’ve been slightly infatuated (okay, more like enamored) with the idea of having a style season a la feathers. Our hosts for tonight’s "Just Add Glam" Posh Party - Jennifer of Just Add Glam and Adiel of It’s Because I Think Too Much - are sharing how they fashion feathers for daytime on today’s post.

1. Feathers make such a fun statement, what is another bold trend you are loving for the holidays? 

Feathers are always fun, but I love the idea of sparkle for the holidays.  It’s one of the few times a year where I feel a big presence of glitter, sequins and sparkle, so it’s fun to play around with that trend! 

image

With this trend, it’s really fun to pair some glam sparkle (whether it’s a statement necklace or other jewelry) with a season-appropriate plaid. It’s a fun mix of masculine and glam!

image

2. Feathers are so festive and fun, but what are your tips for wearing them for daytime?

Feathers can easily be transitioned to daytime. You can embrace this trend by wearing white or natural-colored feathers in small amounts - think feather earrings or a feathered headband!

1. Feathers make such a fun statement, what is another bold trend you are loving for the holidays? 

I really like statement outerwear this season. Bold prints or loud colors; I’m trying to stock my wardrobe full of ‘em!

image

2. Feathers are so festive and fun, but what are your tips for wearing them for daytime?

Feathered accessories are best for a day look; think earrings, handbags, or hair pieces. If you are feeling a little more daring, wear a feathered skirt with casual basics such as chambray shirt or basic tee.

Happy Poshing!

Whether you are celebrating Fall on the West Coast or styling it up in the East Coast, today’s hosts and guest bloggers - Naty of A Love Affair with Fashion and Paulina of Lil’ Bits of Chic - are here to cover it all on the blog! If you are absolutely falling for Naty’s and Paulina’s fall fashions, don’t miss out on their “Flirty & Feminine” Posh Party tonight!

I’m all about long sleeve sweater dresses and tall boots for cooler weather.  It’s great for staying warm & stylish at the same time.

Booties, skinny jeans, leather jacket and a hat are a must have for me in the fall!

image

I am currently having a love affair with leather, so it’s definitely a go-to piece for me this season.  I’m also loving the oxblood color trend as well. I definitely gravitate towards blazers, moto jackets, and long coats for the fall.

Naty’s “Fall Favorites” Wishlist: Anything from the Isabel Marant Pour H&M collection!

Since San Diego tends to go from hot to cold throughout the day, a jacket that I can toss on and take off is pretty essential. Lately I have been putting my moto jacket to good use because it keeps me warm and layers well with other pieces. 

image

Fall is synonymous with boot weather and when I want to jazz up a casual outfit without compromising comfort I reach for my over the knee, no heel boots. By the same token, when I want to dress up my go-to booties at the moment are my Zara cut out booties.

Paulina’s “Fall Favorites” Wishlist: 1 / 2 / 3

Whether you’re falling for sweater weather or falling in love, our hosts for tonight’s Posh Party - McKenna of McKenna Bleu and Kate of All Things Kate - know how assemble some wow-worthy outfits. We asked McKenna and Kate for their fall favorite looks for a date night that’s both weather appropriate and flirty fun!

If their date night style has won you over, be sure to check out their host picks tonight at their Pretty, Girly & Flirty Posh Party!

This is my go-to date night look - as of lately. Nothing is better than a causal blazer and skinny jeans. Add a statement necklace and a cute pair of heels and call it a night! Whether we’re grabbing our fave sushi or catching the newest flick, it’s a look that works every time!

Fall in the Pacific Northwest is the perfect time of year for layering and leggings! I love this look for a fall date night because it’s comfortable and casual, yet dressy enough for nearly any occasion. While I’ve styled this with necklaces and flats, you can add in a scarf and boots to keep you extra warm during chilly temperatures!
