Roar...Spice Up Those Winter Sweaters.

I often get so bored with winter clothes. There's only so much you can do with sweaters and jeans. There aren't any fun prints like in Spring and the colors are usually SO DRAB. In the winter, it's pretty easy to stick to your basic sweaters, but you should invest in the things that people will see most of the time--outerwear and shoes! If you have your coat on all the time, no one is going to be able to see what's underneath anyway, so you should have a killer coat. Same with your boots.  

In this blog, we are focusing on one of my favorite footwear options for winter, the patterned bootie! For me, I chose leopard because I really do think you can treat it like a neutral, but snake is a good option too. I bought a Zara leopard bootie that is now sold out, but I chose an amazing Rag & Bone one for this blog, and there are a couple other more affordable options here and here. I love these snake print Vans and these snake booties from Free People as well. If the booties aren't enough for you to spice things up, add a colored beanie or what Rosie does below with the forest green bag. Forest green or burgundy would both be perfect choices to complement the bootie. Your booties. And your actual bootie.

Spring Pins! And Gingham!

Hey you guys. Happy New Year! Yeah, I know it's been the new year for, oh, almost two months, but it's just that having a baby that just turned one and trying to work full time has meant blogging hasn't been a priority. BUT--this brief hiatus has reminded me how much I love it, so my dear friends, 2015 is going to be the year of the Amber Lehman Styling blog. I don't care if I don't have the photoshop skillz to make this the most gorge blog ever, or if the template isn't the most up to date, the motto for 2015 is "TRY"...just do it. So, I'm over feeling bad about all that, and I'm moving on.

Between me, and Carrie, and Beth, we shop all the time, and we have the knowledge. And hopefully that's what you come to this blog for--tips and trends from people who ACTUALLY DO THIS FOR A LIVING. There. So, the first blog of the year is dedicated to spring pins I've found while I'm cooped up in the house because wrestling a one-year-old into a jacket like a wild hyena to go outside is just too much for me.

On this chilly Nashville day, I am dreaming about lighter layers and gingham. Yes, you heard me. Gingham. If you don't follow me on Pinterest, you should. Just my opinion. But I do think I'm a good pinner :). These and more can be found there!

A classic trench has been on my list for a while.

1) My buns never look that good. Not my hair buns anyway...hey-oooooooo. 2) I once got in a catfight in high school with a girl and I was wearing gingham shorts. Annnnd, now gingham is back, and I am not as young as I once was. 
3) This is how you wear gingham.

Loving the sporty trend happening right now. This outfit has so much fun texture and gets a shot of "not so serious" with those sneaks.
