Welcome to the Style Sessions Fashion Link Up! This week I’m so delighted to share one of my absolute favorite winter looks. I adore long wool coats and there is something impeccably polished about a cream colored one. The military style details and gorgeous buttons make this coat my perfect coat for winter (oh and it’s also on sale under $100, so it’s extra perfect!).

Lately, I’ve also been loving a clean neutral palette and kept with this by layering a Chicwish peplum knit sweater underneath. You probably know by know, I’ve got quite a thing for metallics – so as soon as I saw these Wallis jacquard pants, I knew I had to have them in my life!

To complete the look, I added a few of my timeless favorites… these classic black Ray-Ban aviator sunglasses from SmartBuyGlasses have barely left my face lately (they’re perfect for winter as a change from the usual gold aviator frames), this Marc Jacobs handbag is my daily go-to (and has been for two years, it’s always perfect with everything), these Michael Kors black heels are the comfiest I’ve ever owned and finally, a pop of red lipstick.

STYLE Q&A WITH BROOKE & ERICA:

How would you describe your style? Brooke: I would describe my style as classic and polished. I tend to opt for pieces that never go out of style, such as structured blazers and pencil skirts. I’m a sucker for nearly everything J. Crew and Kate Spade can put out. Erica: I like looks that are simple and chic. I prefer to choose styles that are classic and long lasting.  

Which fashion trend are you currently loving? Brooke: I am really loving leopard and oversized tops lately. The leopard because to me, it just glams up any outfit and the oversized tops because well, I have a growing baby bump that could use the extra room. Erica: I love boyfriend jeans paired with pointy toed heels. 

What inspired you to start your blog? Brooke: My inspiration came from all of the fabulous blogs I read daily. I’ve been a follower of many fashion blogs for the last five years and finally started my own in 2013. I started the blog as a way to share my love of style and fashion and my professional knowledge as a personal trainer. I brought in Erica, my sister-in-law, who is an RD, with a fabulous fashion sense to amp up the nutrition side of our blog. We also have a physician and several other health professionals that regularly contribute, to enhance the health aspect even more. Since starting the blog, it has become many other things, but still sticks to the blend of both health and fashion. Erica: Actually our blog was started by Brooke but she asked me to join her because of the sound nutrition advice that I could bring to readers.

Name a couple beauty products you couldn’t live without: Brooke: MAC Pro Longwear Foundation, Paula’s Choice Resist Super Antioxidant Concentrate Serum and Make-Up Forever HD PowderErica: Aveda’s Outer Peace Foaming Face Cleanser, Garnier’s Radiance Moisture Cream and Blistex Lip Medex.

What is your best beauty trick? Brooke: I wouldn’t call it a trick, but I always set my eyeliner with black eyeshadow, it smooths the line and helps the liner stay in place (I use MAC Fluidline). Erica: Curling hair – its all about doing it in layers from the inside – out.

What is your favorite (or dream) vacation destination? Brooke: I would love to one day visit Greece. Erica: Euuuurrrroooooope.

Tell us something not many people know about you? Brooke: I’m a fairly talented singer, as a kid I competed in many competitions, but as I got older, I just lost my love of performing. Erica: I rode and competed in horse shows for most of my youth (up until college), played lacrosse in high school and rugby for year on a club team in college.
