Layering Outerwear


A few weeks ago, my friend, Lauren, got a pass to the Mountain Hardwear employee store. Mountain Hardwear is an outdoor clothing and equipment store. Since skiing season has begun, we were both looking to get some new gear at some great prices, and let me tell you, there were some great deals. I will say one thing though, the men’s section definitely had a better selection in terms of colors and design. I ended up shopping in the men’s section and picked up some great base layers and an awesome jacket that turned out to be great for layering.  Continue Reading

Overlooked Outerwear ft. The Vest


The vest is a tricky piece to work with. Let’s state the obvious, they leave your arms completely exposed and it doesn’t matter if you have a North Face or Patagonia one, some part of your body will be cold. Of all the outerwear in my closet, the vests are the ones that get the least use. They’re not versatile and the weather has to be just right for me to reach for one of my vests. Although I don’t wear vests quite as often as I would like, they do add a little something something to, what would otherwise be considered, a “blah” outfit.  Continue Reading

Off The Grid in Culottes


I have been loving and embracing the culotte trend. I wore jersey culottes when I was in middle school because I hated wearing jeans at the time and culottes were so breezy and comfortable. Not only has the comfy trend come back, but it came with some nice upgrades. Keep reading to see how I style a pair of my favorite faux leather culottes.  Continue Reading

Slightly Romantic







Every now and again, I like to step out of my comfort zone of neutrals and dabble in a little color. Personally, I don’t think anyone can own too many neutrals because they go with everything, but sometimes I need a pop of color. This baby pink Zara coat added just the right amount of femininity for me and it made the outfit stand out from just another neutral outfit. 

 Stay Chic!

Today is such an exciting day for me because this post is my 100th post on Spotted.Chic.  This blog was created entirely on a whim in the middle of my PSYCH101 class and I can’t begin to thank all my readers and friends who have supported me through this journey.  To show my appreciation, I wanted to have a little giveaway, so keep reading or scroll to the bottom of this post to see what I am giving away and how to enter.





I have been wearing this neon chartreuse jacket any chance I get because it’s starting to get to that point where I feel uncomfortable wearing such a loud color in public.  To tone down the brightness of the jacket, I paired it with a simple grey chiffon tank with some cutouts in the shoulder/collarbone area and a pair of my favorite ripped boyfriend jeans.


I know I said that I loved my jacket, but I also LOVE these booties! If you read my August Hits and Misses post, you will know that I recently purchased these lovely booties and that I am in love with them.  They are so comfortable and so versatile.  The foundation of the outfit is pretty simple, but I think the jacket and shoes really pull it together and make it the outfit a lot more interesting.
