Allow Me To Reintroduce Myself

If you watched my organizational hacks video, you already know that I have stick to a (color-coded!) calendar to keep sane. So over the past few weeks, I rounded up all your feedback from my blog survey and Instagram questions and put together a new editorial calendar based on what you guys want to see more of from me. I’m really excited to announce that I’m now posting daily! There will be fresh content on the blog every single day, Monday through Sunday. So allow me to reintroduce myself (bonus points if you know that song!) with the new Sydne Style edit calendar:

7 Ways to Update a Black Coat

The majority of wintertime, people see you in a coat. While it's fun to invest in a new coat every season, it can get quite expensive! So today, I wanted to bring you some ideas on how you can easily update your coat with accessories. I went with a black coat I've had for years. I bought in a day before I left for New York Fashion Week ages ago. There was only one left, it was in my size and it was on major sale. It was meant to be! Since it's not available online anymore, I found some black coat options under $150 in case you're in the market for some new outerwear.…

Inspired By: Kate Beckinsale’s Chic Blanket Scarf

I've been majorly crushing on Kate Beckinsale's style. She was the final celebrity I was inspired by last year and she's the first to kick off my Inspired By column in 2017. Kate just has this way of making even the simplest outfits look ultra glam. Take this all-black ensemble, for example. By simply throwing a Burberry blanket scarf over black pants and adding Jimmy Choo pumps, Kate brought movie-star glamour to the streets. I went for a similar look by starting with all-black everything: a cozy cashmere sweater (now only $69!), comfy black skinny jeans and suede pumps (also on sale!).…

Neutral Stripes for Easy Resort Style

Maxi dresses are one of my favorite things to wear on resort vacations. Even though Sydney, Australia is a city, the beach towns often feel like resorts. So I brought along this striped maxi to wear from day to night. The sheer layers kept me cool in the summer heat, the stripes were great for elongating my figure and the neutrals easily carried from day to night.
I hope you enjoyed my Australian style series! You can see more on Instagram with the hashtag #sydneinsydney and click here for all my posts from Down Under.

Four Ways to Get Out of a Funk

I don't know whether it was the post holiday blues, jet lag the rainy weather, or a combination of all three, but I was in a major funk the past week. I felt overwhelmed, unmotivated and simply, for the lack of a better word, blah. I'm happy to say I've recovered but it took some serious mental work. So I figured I'd share the steps that helped me in case you're battling a funk of your own:

1. Distract yourself with mindless activity.

When I got back home after my trip my mind was racing. I thought about everything I had to do.…
