I have been hunting for a pair of plaid pants for awhile so when I found these black and white babies I had to get them. As I have said before I am very inspired by menswear lately so I decided to pair these with a button down shirt and blazer and added the red flats for a splash of color.

The weather has been all over the place in RVA (example: it's 60 today but supposed to snow tomorrow) so when a warm day comes along I try to take advantage and wear something fun instead of my usual endless layers of black on black. I wore this look last week to go to a meeting. I wanted to look professional but still casual so I decided to wear my go to black leather leggings, a white button up with a cropped sweater layered over it and my knee high boots for a little added sass. To top the look off I wore my new super cool Comme des Garcons for H&M jacket. When dressing I have been very inspired by menswear lately so this jacket immediately caught my eye with its awesome structure and tail.

Fact about me: I absolutely love menswear. Pitti Uomo is a mens fashion trade show that happens in Florence
twice a year that showcases all mens fashion from suits to casual wear. It is also a parade of ridiculously well dressed men of all ages in one place. These are some of my favorite street style looks from this past event:
No matter what season it is I love wearing all black, but there is something about layers of black in the winter that looks extra glam.This coat was a new addition to my closet this season and I really love it. The pony hair sleeves add a little something to the coat and it is nice and loose so I can layer lots under it which is very necessary for a small girl on these cold winter days spent walking around Carytown.
Happy New Year everyone!! 2013 was a year of changes for me fashion wise. I explored some new looks and trends, found a style that works for me and took some fun fashion risks along the way. I also cut off 13 inches of hair and have been loving my new short hair. Here is a look back at some of my favorite looks of 2013:
