Is it just me or has Kim Kardashian’s style taken a complete turn for the worse since becoming pregnant? In my opinion, she has completely lost her sense of fashion. Don’t get me wrong, I absolutely love the Kardashians (all million trillion of them) but I just don’t understand why one of them can’t help a sister out. That’s what family is for right? Kim is no stranger to curves, but there is just something about this baby bump curve that she just cant get right. Do you agree?
This time of the year is so busy – between work, shopping, parties & the holidays, who has time to do anything extra? Not me! This is when I rely on the looks that keep me polished but take very little time and effort to plan out. Peplum tops, oversized sweaters, jeans, dresses, leather jackets, leather pants, and blazers are my go-to’s this time year without a doubt. I can mix and match these items to create 10+ polished looks in just minutes. As a bonus – thats less than 7 items to pack in a suitcase if your going away for the holiday. Check out my favorite way to style these pieces down below … you will be thankful you did.
Peplum tops: I find a peplum top to be the most fashionable of all tops. It is as easy to put on as a tee shirt, but instantly adds polish without trying at all. Pair it with jeans for an instant look.
Oversized Sweaters: Pair up jeans or leather pants with an oversized sweater for an instant comfy chic look with no effort at all. This comfy chic look is totally acceptable during the colder months – so take advantage of it while you can.

Dresses: Pair up your favorite dress with a leather jacket, a pair of tights, and some booties for an instant polished fall look. We all know how easy it is to slip a dress on – so go for it, save some time. Added bonus – you can reuse your summer clothes at no extra cost!
Head to Toe Leather: Reuse the same leather jacket and leather pants to create a fashionable look in seconds. This used to say rocker chic – but now it just says fabulous!

Blazers: Pair a blazer with your favorite pair of jeans and tee-shirt to add instant chic in seconds. It’s hard to believe what a simple blazer can do! I recommend a grey tee underneath – I used to like white the best, but grey is my new fave!
Announcing my top 5 Friday Favorites is always so much fun. I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again, but I absolutely love sharing these. In case your wondering, the post is a little late because I have been Black Friday shopping since 9:00pm last night, so I am a little tired and behind schedule. I hope everyone had an amazing Thanksgiving with their families and scored some amazing shopping deals while I was away. I know I did. As always, I hope you enjoy this weeks favorites, and click the links to visit the blogs of those whom these looks belong to. Have a great weekend!
