Ready in Red: Taking on 2017


The first week of 2017 is in the books. I am feeling so excited to get back to school in a few weeks and start my classes at Mizzou, especially because I am starting a NEW major this semester: Journalism! I am looking forward to the next few years as I finish up my degree. I truly believe that hard work can take you anywhere in life; and I am excited to see what is in store for 2017.

The first week of the year was definitely a chilly one here in Missouri! We had windchill temperatures that dropped below -6. I am really more of a summertime kind of girl but I do love a good peacoat, legging, and boot combo during the chilly months.

A colorful peacoat is definitely one of my favorite things to wear during the winter. I love styles like this red Guess wool blend trench coat, because the tie around the waste and the length of the coat make the silhouette super flattering, no matter how many layers you have on underneath! I have always been more for gold accessories over silver, so the gold buttons on this coat definitely caught my eye.



During the winter, I practically LIVE in boots. These Steve Madden over-the-knee boots were featured in my NYE look: Glitter + Goals: Tips for Setting Your New Year's Resolutions. They practically go with any outfit, making them the perfect staple to have in your wardrobe. These boots have a wider based heel, making them easier to walk in and more comfortable than a skinny heel. I am 5'10" and I have always struggled finding boots tall enough to actually cover my knees, but these finally hit the perfect spot right above my knee caps. #TallGirlProbs
