Skirt: LOFT // Sweater: Target (bogo 50% off all women's clothing) // OTK boots: Chinese Laundry // Faux-Fur Stole: Boohoo // Bag: Mad Style // Necklace: J. Crew

I'm a huge fan of LOFT and their Flippy skirt. It's the only short skirt that I own that doesn't make me feel too scandalous. It's also a super comfy and fun shape. I have to tell you that I own 3 now, and they are perfect for work with tights and boots or flats when this stinkin' cold finally goes away for good.

My puffer coats have made more appearances in my posts than I would care to see, but thats just how it's been. Every time I hang it up, its right back out in rotation. At least this one isn't black. Little victories...

Sweater: Zara (similar here on ASOS) // Leggings: Kohls // Necklace: H&M // Hat: Zara // Booties: Shoemint // Lips: "Yu" by Nars // Purse: Mad Style

This necklace was a last minute decision. I thought it would be too big and heavy and deter me from ever wanting to wear it. Turns out this was just the opposite. It adds so much interest to an outfit. Especially ones like this that i wear to work which consist of a big cozy sweater and leggings. Just goes to prove the power of statement jewelry!

Recently my blog was given one of the most valued compliments to date. A fellow blogger expressed how she loved visiting my blog, especially in the winter, because I kept things so real. She told me that she appreciated my real, yet fashionable style, especially while some bloggers were out in the snow in bare legs and heels. More power to them, but that's just not me. I'm in knit hats and a million layers Barely peeking out from behind my scarves!

There is nothing I want to be more as an online presence than REAL. The reason being, that is just exactly what I am and what I stand for in everyday life. What you see here on Hot Pink Style is what I really wear to work running around my school and then on my way to a workout after that. That may be why you don't see me prancing around in high heels. I rarely have on a heel taller than 3 inches, and even with that, I still probably have a pair of flats in my massive work bag.

With my company, Jill of All Trades Chicago, I try to help women be comfortable while looking great. I think that my ability to keep style approachable and comfortable is what draws my clients to me. I try to replicate this feeling for all my clients who are all intelligent but busy real women.

I'll leave the glamour and Louboutin's to the bloggers who do that best, I'm totally cool with that not being me. And thanks to all you supporters of real style for real busy women!
