Street Style Featuring Cat Footwear and American Eagle Outfitters


I can't tell you enough how happy I am that spring season is almost here. I'm over all this snow and heavy winter coats. As much as I love wearing dresses, I love playing up a good streetwear look and am actually most comfortable in a pair of jeggings and layering it from there. 

There are several brands I want to give a lot of love to in this post, and I really feel like all the pieces included in this look really came together and tied into my style. First I'm going to start with what I love most about the winter season ---- wearing boots! The Penelope Boot by Cat Footwear has been my go-to tall boot this winter, because it gives me some heel height (2.5 inches) but is also comfortable enough to trek around city all day or evening. I also love the combination of leather and suede, as I've found with any Cat Footwear shoes I own, the more you wear them, the more worn and rugged they look. These boots are so durable, I expect them to stay in my shoedrobe for a very long time. I also love the nail head inspired detailing on the shoe, giving it a little bit more edge. What's great too is that I can wear tall boots and ankle boots well into spring. I usually wear the Penelope boots with jeggings but in the spring I can also wear them with a mini skirt or ripped shorts and slouched over-the-knee socks. 

The American Eagle Outfitters Patched Utility Jacket is already sold out online, but you might find it on clearance in stores. I usually wear an XS in American Eagle sizing, but this jacket I have is a size S - I actually love the oversized look and it allows me to easily wear a chunky sweater with it. Now for these jeans...which I've gotten a lot of compliments on. These American Eagle Outfitters Denim X Hi-Rise Jeggings are my favorite ever and they have the most flattering fit! The denim is Super Super Stretch, and I'm all about the high rise fit and destructed detailing. I'm definitely going to have to get more pairs!

The Taurus Zodiac Necklace is from Sequin's Star Map Collection, which features the Taurus Zodiac charm, embossed and studded with crystals. It is 22K gold-plated brass with an antique finish and cast from an original Sequin illustration. The collection features all twelve astrological signs, so it's the perfect gift to include with a horoscope!

For travel, I've been using the Solo Weekender Backpack Duffel from the Velocity Collection. I use it as a carry-on for my market trips for work. I like how you can carry it as a duffel or wear it as a backpack. It has a fully padded laptop compartment and internal iPad pocket. There's also a separate shoe compartment, which comes in handy since I always bring one too many pairs of shoes. There are also side zip pockets on both sides to easily access your wallet, phone, tech accessories and snacks. 

A big thank you to all the mentioned brands who have helped me pull this look together, and to Krystal of Krystal Pratt Productions who has quickly become one of my favorite photographers to work with. She gets my vision, comes up with great concepts and ideas, is extremely organized, and makes the shoot feel natural since she is great at giving direction. Some of my favorite shots are the candid ones! She makes her work look effortless, and I'm always excited to be a part of it :) Check out her blog at www.krysprattphotography.wordpress.com, to check out her stories from a photographer's perspective. 

Thank you to MUA Nancy Rose, who did my makeup with a daytime smokey eye, nude lip and faux lashes (what a difference lashes make!) and to Bri Weling for giving my hair more volume with loose waves.
