White jeans in winter

Boots: REPORT via Macy’s – Sweater: Zara (not available anymore, but here are other ZARA options )
Blazer: American Eagle (old) – Jeans: Target – Beanie: H+M – Sunglasses: RayBan – Bag: Target – Owl Broche: Gifted

     How’s everyone feelin’ on this Monday? It’s chilly and rainy here in Vegas, but I don’t mind one bit!
I decided to break out my white jeans and make them work for winter, which is definitely possible if you follow a few simple rules:
1. Don’t pair them with bright colors, it makes them look summerly
2. Instead opt for burgundy, navy, black, brown, shades of gray, hunter green, brown and camel.
3. Pay attention to fabric. Gauzy material is too light and will look strange (plus it’s too cold for that!)
4. Layer! Think blazers, sweaters, scarves, etc. 
5. Throw on some boots. Boots are obviously for the colder months and will help transition your white jeans for winter.
     I chose to pair mine with all black pieces, but added a little something extra with this owl broche. It was a gift from my husband and I love it! (Check out my post about my elephant broche here ).

New Year’s Eve

 Sequin Dress: Forever 21 – Heels – Steve Madden (similar here)
It’s that time of year again! While I don’t usually dress up too much for New Year’s Eve, I decided that with 2015 being such an amazing year I’m going to send it off with some flare!
I came across this dress at Forever 21 and I swear I think I blacked out until I was at the checkout counter and saw this sequin blush dress in my hand. I don’t own anything with sequins – or blush for that matter – so it was a bit of an odd pick for me… but I love it!  It’s comfortable and fits just right. I’m already thinking of ways to dress it down for other occasions. 
I’d also like to take this time to thank each and every one of you for your continued support. I’m so appreciative for every time you share this blog on your social media pages and let your friends know about The Nomis Niche. My heart is truly full of gratitude.
So cheers to the 2016 and may it be filled with more blessings than you can count!

Christmas in Pittsburgh

 

 Coat: Shein – Shoes: Penny Loves Kenny – Scarf: h+m – Hat: Target – Purse: forever 21

        It’s good to be back in Vegas, but I always get a little down after Christmas is over and we have to leave family and friends in Pittsburgh. This picture was actually taken in the backyard on the ONLY cold day in the Burg’. Seriously, it felt like springtime for the rest of the trip!
     I love the length of this coat. I’ve been looking for one that hit at my shins and this one was just the right price. Keep the pallet neutral and add in some pops of color, like red shoes and a red beanie.

ONE TURTLENECK TWO WAYS

Turtleneck Two Ways

     Turtlenecks are my JAM as of late. Especially the loosey goosey ones that don’t feel like hands strangling my neck (you know what I’m talking about). So forget everything you once thought you knew about turtlenecks and let’s begin… 
     First of all… you can wear them multiple ways: under dresses, tucked in skirts, under your favorite leather jacket, etc. For these two options I chose some items that I feel you may already have in your closet. 
     
FIRST LOOK: Pairing a gray turtleneck with distressed jeans and some sneaks is my ultimate winter weekend look (just check out this look if you think I’m lying). A red beanie and a leopard purse makes it feel more put together. Also, I’m very excited Adidas Originals (or shell-toes as I call them) are back. I owned three pairs in high school and I’m pinching myself for not taking better care of them!

SECOND LOOK: Depending on how the sweater fits you, I would either tuck it completely into the skirt or do a “half-tuck” for more polish. I love how the wine colored purse and emerald booties compliment each other and give your otherwise neutral outfit some color. I debated throwing on a grandma-chic broche instead of the silver statement necklace (as seen here) – but really either would look great. 

     Hope that helps! Happy styling!
