Get The Look: Beanie Baby

The-Fashion-Bite-Katie-Roof-Beanie-Baby-Winter-Style

So, it’s officially my favorite season! Yes, winter is great and of course I can’t wait for Christmas… but I was actually referring to Beanie Season!

Beanies are everything. Right?!? They keep you warm and cozy, cover up post-workout hair ( #dirtyhairdontcare ), and give you that IDGAF kinda look.

You know I love my tomboy chic… but I’m actually really loving beanies with maxi dresses, sky high platforms, and super girlie things! So don’t be afraid to mix things up ;)

 Loooooove mixing black & blue. Esp when the blue is in the form of a Chanel ;)

Real vs. Steal: Coated Denim

The-Fashion-Bite-x-AOS-Mya-Moto

So… coated denim is kind of my thing as of late! It gives you the best of both worlds IMHO. I love the look of leather, but hate feeling like I’m stuck in a sauna. Ick. Coated denim lets you feel like you’re wearing super comfy jeans, but with a rocker edge that’s right up my alley.

You know what’s not up my alley…? Spending $200 on a pair of jeans. I mean. Are you insane?!? I’ll admit… I used to fall into the “designer jeans trap” myself, then I grew up and got smart.

Yes, the Paige Verdugo Coated Skinnies are adorbs, but you can get an equally amazing pair for less than half the price. These Mya Motos from the AOS fall collection are to die for. I am beyond obsessed and have been living in mine ever since I scored a pair.

So, do I even have to ask…? Are you going to splurge on the real… or save with the steal?

Real Vs. Steal: Bootie Call

The-Fashion-Bite-Katie-Roof-Real-Vs-Steal-Bootie-Call-Title-Image

So, time to spill a dirty little secret. I’m a shoe addict… particularly when it comes to boots. I probably have 25+ pairs of black boots alone, and I’m not sorry about it.

These bad boys are my absolute fav!! They may look a little intense, but I swear they are beyond comfortable and go with literally everything + I kind of feel like Jack Skellington when I wear them which to me is a total plus!

The-Fashion-Bite-Katie-Roof-Real-Vs-Steal-Bootie-Call

Yes, these gorgeous UNIF Neo booties are absolutely to die… I know they’re platforms and all, but $215 is a little steep if you ask me <– get it… steep, platforms, k. Oh ya, another ‘lil secret… I ♥ bad puns, lolz.

So back to the shoes. The H&M version is a quarter of the price and wayyyyy cuter IMHO. I’m so obsessed with the front zips, ribbed padding, and chunky soles. Plus, this version is totally vegan & animal friendly <– woo hoo!

So, spill… would you splurge on the real or save with the steal?

Get The Look

The-Fashion-Bite-Katie-Roof-Get-The-Look-Flannel-Affair

I may like pretty things, but I’m a TOTAL tomboy at heart ( always have been, always will be… sry )!! That being said, I’m still completely obsessed with fashion ( obvi ) and love finding looks that allow me to mix and match my tomboy favs with some girlie touches.

THE-FASHION-BITE-Katie-Roof-Get-The-Look-add-a-pretty-braid

I love this look because A) it’s cute, B) it’s comfy, and C) it basically works for any and every occasion. Lunch with your bestie babes ✓, a night to forget at your fav dive bar ✓, Blog-Doo book club ✓, Sunday din with the fam ✓… you get the point.

My favorite leather jacket and vintage flannel are absolute staples ( I live in them ). This look can easily go downhill quick. Yep, down that hill and straight on to Frumpville USA, but pairing them with a skinny mini, a cute pair of ankle boots, and a girlie ‘do totally femmes it up. If you’re going to rock the tomboy look think Tomboy Chic… not twinning with your boyfriend. Thx.

→ Spring Forward →

It’s official… Spring is in the air! Well, maybe not “official” as the Spring Equinox doesn’t technically occur until March 20th, but as far as I’m concerned… Spring has sprung.

I couldn’t be more excited because every new season feels like a fresh start. Spring means longer days, hotter nights, & more importantly new fashion trends. I’m obsessed with anything and everything floral right now [which is very unlike me]. This little dime is one of my favs of the moment. Floral with a 90’s twist yes please! I had a dress just like this circa ’93… hey, what goes around comes around.

I’m also dying over these beige booties <– I forced myself to buy beige over black and I’m glad I did… I think they’re perfect for Spring!
