ROAR

Chaser Brand

One thing I am learning very fast is… when it’s cold, you get creative. My original outfit today featured my fave Donna Karan metallic oxfords. They are so very comfortable, as all oxfords should be. However, as the snow began to fall I realized bare ankles were a bad idea.

For todays Central Park exploring outfit, I traded in my oxfords for my combat boots and doubled up my over the knee socks for a nice leg warmer. I dressed up my ROAR Chaser Brand T-shirt and wool J.Crew cap with an unexpected tuxedo blazer.
After the photos I quickly found my parka and ran to the nearest thawing area. He, he:)

FashionBillie Bit: Back in the day (a.k.a 17th century), men’s shoes were cut smaller than their feet to match the fashion of the time…. wait for it… wait for it… To have the appearence of smaller feet!!! No lie! So as you can imagine men’s shoes were not comfortable until the ol’ oxford came along! The oxford was one of the first comfortable men’s laced shoes.

I found my ROAR T-shirt on Rue lala where I get lots of great pieces for a steal. Click Here to get deals on Rue lala

Preppy Chic

One of my very fashionable co-workers caught my eye this morning.  It was the monogrammed vest she wore that really struck my fancy!

I’m not sure if it’s a girl thing or a FashionBillie thing but…  I LOVE Monogrammed anything!!

She was rocking some lace up ankle boots as well.  Sensible style!

Get preppy with this adorable monogrammed J. Crew vest.    Add a bit of sass by pairing it with some 2013 spring fashion trends.   A leather short, floral capri or striped shirt will do the trick!

This vest is a great investment.  Preppy chic is always in style.  While you dress imagine Blair Waldorf with a mix of Serena van der Woodsen.  A little bit of polish with a lot of trendy sass.  One of my favorite fellow bloggers is Blair Eadie of Atlantic Pacific.  She regularly pulls this preppy chic look off to perfection.  Check her out- Click Here
