Fall 2016 Lookbook: Outerwear Edition

Hi people, it’s NikkiSimone here bringing you my final post in my Fall 2016 Lookbook series. This one is special. Although the basic outfit remains the same, I show you four different outerwear pieces that are completely necessary for any fall wadrobe. Fall, in Chicago, has been pretty mild so far so I was able to show off the gams a bit. Each one of the looks in this lookbook series can be paired with tights or leggings to add a bit of warmth. All off the details of these looks will be listed at the end of this post.

FALL 2016 LOOKBOOK: LOOK 4

Hi people, it’s NikkiSimone here bringing you look four of my Fall 2016 lookbook. If you missed looks one, two, and three you can find them herehere, and here. Fall, in Chicago, has been pretty mild so far so I was able to show off the gams a bit. Each one of the looks in this lookbook series can be paired with tights or leggings to add a bit of warmth. All off the details of this look will be listed at the end of this post.

Look 4: Mean Green

I was somewhat torn with this look because I’m usually pretty matchy matchy when it comes to pairing articles of the same color. I took a risk and realized that they did work well together.

Look 2:  Comfy Boho

This look is so chill and comfortable. The color of the swing dress screams fall. Just beware of a windy day, unless you’re trying to give your city a show. I dressed it down by adding the denim jacket and knee high combat boots.

Fall 2016 Lookbook: Look 1

Hi people, it’s NikkiSimone here bringing you look one of my Fall 2016 lookbook. Fall, in Chicago, as been pretty mild so far so I was able to show off the gams a bit. Each one of the looks in this lookbook series can be paired with tights or leggings to add a bit of warmth. All off the details of this look will be listed at the end of this post.

Look 1: Marvel n Heels 

This look is one of my favorites. It’s a bit playful compared to my everyday style. It’s also a cute way to incorporate the graphic tee/sweatshirt look into your fall wardrobe. I decided to add fashion glasses to let my true nerdiness shine through.

Summer ’16 Lookbook: Look 5

Hi people, it’s NikkiSimone here bringing you look five of my Summer ’16 lookbook. In case you missed it, you can see look 1 here, look 2 here, look 3 here, and look 4 here. All off the details of this look will be listed at the end of this post.

Look 5: LBD and Beyond

We’ve all heard the rule about every woman having a little black dress, or LBD. I think this applies for day and night. The dress I’m wearing here is super casual and comfy and can be taken from day to night. I switched up a few accessories to give the dress a entirely different feel as I transitioned from day to night.

Look 4: That Split Though…

This skirt started as an experiment. I had this beautiful fabric and I wanted to put it to good use. A slapped a piece of elastic at the top, just playing around, and I loved the way it turned out. The giant split is the perfect amount of tease. I just had to beware of any large gusts of wind.

Summer ’16 Lookbook: Look 3

Hi people, it’s NikkiSimone here bringing you look three of my Summer ’16 lookbook. In case you missed it, you can see look 1 here, and look 2 here. All off the details of this look will be listed at the end of this post.

Look 3: Box Pleats on Fleek

This look is very special to me. I had this vision of a beautiful full maxi skirt in a vibrant, bold pattern. When I saw this fabric in store,  I knew I had to do it justice by creating these box pleats that works with the print perfectly. Hours of pinning, measuring, and ironing took place, but it was all worth it.

Summer ’16 Lookbook: Look 2

Hey people,  it’s NikkiSimone here. This is look two of my Summer ’16 lookbook. If you missed look 1 you can check it out right here. All of the details of this look will be listed at the very end of the post.

Look 2: Bold Print Pencil Skirt 

I really enjoyed putting this look together. It all started with this beautiful, vibrant cotton print fabric that I purchased. It took me while to figure out what to make with it. As I was staring at it one day, it just hit me. Pencil skirt. Not just any ol’ basic pencil skirt though. I had to make it my own. And if you’ve ever worn a pencil skirt, you know what a struggle it is to walk in one, especially one of midi length. I solved that issue by putting not only a standard split in the back, but a very daring split in the front as well,  and every thing just fell into place.

Summer ’16 Lookbook: Look 1

Hey people, it’s NikkiSimone here. Stopping through to share my first look of my Summer ’16 look book. All of the details of every look will be listed at the end.

Look 1: White Lace

I definitely stepped out of my comfort zone with look. Cleavage, midriff, and legs out….at the same time?! SHEESH….I threw on a cover up to act as a security blanket. It looked great especially with my city as a backdrop.
