3 Trends To Try This Winter

I’d like to you all to meet a new blogger friend of mine, Lo Moran. Like me, she’s a Minnesotan who now lives in North Dakota and she loves supporting local businesses. Lo writes about fashion, beauty and life at thoseprettypieces.com. Be sure to follow her on the Those Pretty Pieces Facebook page and on Instagram as @thoseprettypieces.

Here’s Lo!

|1| Button up skirt
This suede button up skirt from Kittsona is one of my favorite items that I have added to my wardrobe this winter. I have seen these skirts all over Pinterest and in magazines in a variety of fabrics. I styled it with black tights (because we live in the frozen tundra) but it would be super cute with over the knee boots as well. You could also pair it with a turtleneck, an oversized sweater, or a blazer. Basically, if you haven’t joined this trend it is time to!


|2| Faux fur
Faux fur was always something I wanted to try but was hesitant to jump right in to the trend. I saw a lot of ladies wearing the full fur vests and I just was not sure if I could do it. When I saw this vest with faux fur trim at Lot 2029 I was totally sold. This vest adds dimension to your outfit and is a great layering piece. If you want to go all in with this trend, Lot 2029 also has a variety of full fur vests that are adorable!

|3| Graphic tee
Even though I live in North Dakota, I am a Minnesota girl at heart. I am also an avid coffee drinker so when I saw this graphic state tee at Caribou Coffee I knew I had to have it. I love the casual look of a graphic tee and jeans. It is perfect for running errands on the weekends or lounging at home. Of course, living in North Dakota, you will want to add a cardigan to stay warm! chunky knits are super popular this season and would be a great addition to your casual look. besides your local Caribou Coffee, you can also find state apparel and graphic tees at Kittsona, Lot 2029, and Unglued.

What about you?
Which of these looks is your favorite?
What’s your favorite outfit to wear in cold weather?
What’s your favorite local shop? (It doesn’t have to be in North Dakota!)
