My summer in the Caribbean this year has been such a dream, from cruising with Carnival to different islands to eating the most delicious cuisines my taste buds have ever tasted – I was truly living the sweet life on deck. And while I enjoyed my summer in the Caribbean, I should also note that it was very humid out. So, when it came to getting ready each day, anything lightweight and uncomplicated was the goal, with skirt set combos and dresses being my go-to staples. 

Seriously, the styling was that easy. Naturally, I found myself embraced by a REVOLVE summer consisting of maxi hemlines and minimal outfitting, like this dress styled here with a cream cardigan, sandals, and a tote to complete the look. Ahead, I share all the details on this look and linked items alike from REVOLVE, that can hopefully serve as inspiration for your next trip.

Winter is basically here, and with a new season comes a change in everyday looks. If you follow me on Instagram, you’ve probably noticed that I have really been loving knitwear and leather looks lately! So, today I am excited to share some new recipes! Not food, but outfits that work perfectly when transitioning from your fall to winter wardrobe. Keep scrolling for more on the step-by-step process of how to create these two effortlessly chic looks that I recently wore.

Recipe 1 – Faux Fur Trim Cardigan and Houndstooth Mini Skirt


Amazon Storefront | Faux Fur Trim Cropped Knit Cardigan

Amazon Storefront | Matte Black Platform Boots

Vintage Houndstooth Mini Skirt (similar here)

Sheertex | Classic Sheer Tights

Vivienne Westwood | Saturn Pearl Choker 

Glassons Two-Tone Faux Leather Shoulder Bag


Start out with your faux fur trim knit cardigan. This can be layered over a tank or white top when styling for colder weather. Then, style your way around the cardigan by adding on some sheer tights and layering a houndstooth skirt over the tights. Finish off your look with a pair of classic platform boots in black and a matching shoulder bag to continue the color palette. For the best results, accessorize with your favorite jewelry pieces. Mine are stacked rings, the Vivienne Westwood pearl choker necklace, my gold ear cuff from Aurate jewelry, and the Maison Miru classic heart studs featured above.

Recipe 2 – Elevated Basics and Platforms


Princess Polly Boutique | Carenza Top

Lioness | Alabama Jean [Plain Denim]

Princess Polly Boutique | Sienna Ring Set

Nine West Platform Boots (similar here)

Joey Baby | Pearl Choker 'Hailey' Necklace

Awe Inspired | Chunky Paperclip Necklace  [Discount code: KELLY.MADU for 15% off]

Mejuri | Croissant Dôme Hoops

Tres Luxe | Lianne Bag


Start out by layering a couple of your favorite necklaces before wearing the carenza top, that way your necklaces peek through the cut-out in the top nicely. Then, pair this with mid/high-rise straight-leg jeans and matte leather platform boots for an elevated feel. I have been obsessed with the style of the Lioness Alabama Jean, especially with this particular look. The slits at the ankles offer something new and pair perfectly when showing off heels or platforms. 

To finish off this look, add a neutral print shoulder bag and your favorite earrings. Drape a coat—in black or tan—over the shoulder if needed when it gets cold.
