Building a Winter Wardrobe

Building a Winter Wardrobe

Hello Friends! I do not understand where the months have gone, and how we are possibly headed into the winter months! I am a complete sucker for fall fashion, and basically wear the same rotation of colors (chestnut, creme, and deep chestnut) throughout the fall months. I’m not sure about you, but I always struggle in the winter to put together “cute” outfits because I feel like I’m limited in my color palette of clothes, and who can be cute when you’re bundled and freezing? I’ve found over the years that if I focus on neutral basics and cute outerwear and shoes, it is much easier for me to put together winter outfits! I still stick to a very neutral clothing palette in the winter months (creme, gray, blush, & the occasional black), but I find when everything in my closet is in the same color scheme, it is much easier for me to grab pieces and go! I put together three different categories of neutral clothing items that I either already have, or just discovered!


White Teddy Bear Jacket – I’ve wanted a teddy bear jacket for so long to add to my wardrobe, and the color and length on this one is perfect! Also comes in 3 other colors!
Dusty Rose Scarf – Scarves are a great addition to pull in color to create a cohesive look!
White Pom Beanie – I am OBSESSED with double pom beanies, this one is on my wish list!
Gray Carhartt Beanie – These beanies are all the rage right now, and they come in a bunch of different colors!
Ruffle Beige Denim Jacket – This jacket is screaming my name, I love the color and the ruffles, it would be perfect to pair with jeans!
Beige Faux Fur Jacket – I love this jacket for a more formal look! It looks very expensive but it under $100!
Top Rated Amazon Down Jacket – This jacket has been on Oprah’s top rated list for years, and is Amazon’s number one best selling down jacket!
Dusty Rose Beanie – Just ordered this beanie because the color is going to be perfect to add in a hint of dusty rose to my winter wardrobe!


Target Leggings Sweater – I’ve essentially lived in this sweater all fall, and I plan to keep wearing it with leggings throughout the winter months!
Dusty Rose Sweater Dress – I just ordered this sweater and it also comes in a ton of different colors!
& Other Stories Mock Neck Sweater – Hands down my favorite classic sweater! The fit is perfect, the quality is incredible, and it comes in many colors! I have the gray color and the material has held up amazing!
Target Ruffle Sweater – Just ordered this statement piece! I think is perfect to have 3 types of sweaters: a leggings sweater, a classic sweater, and a statement sweater!
Free People Layering Top – I own 3 of the discontinued style of these tops, and I’ve had them for 4 years now and find myself wearing them over and over in the wintertime!


White Jeans – I think white jeans are adorable in the winter with cream, grey, or colored sweaters!
Off White Jeans – Just ordered this pair of jeans for a warmer toned white and I cannot wait to try them!
Beige Chelsea Boots – I saw these boots and instantly fell in love! I bit edgier than my normal style, but I feel like I would live in these! Definitely on the wish list!
Top Rated OTK Boots – My favorite OTK boots! I wore the brown ones almost every day in the fall, so I took to jump and got the gray color for winter!

Bridal Dress Breakdown!

Bridal Dress Breakdown!

It is beginning to look a lot like bridal shower season! I am forever wishing I could be a bride again for the sole excuse to buy allll of the white lace dresses! If you know me, you know I could live in a white lace dress every single day of the week. No ruffle or frill is too much for me, and while I already have far too many white dresses in my wardrobe, I am always looking to add to my collection!

I thought it would be fun to do a run down of dresses I would currently be buying for a bachelorette or shower if I were a bride again! I am SO excited to be partnering up with Red Dress for this round up! If you have not shopped there before, you can get 10% off by signing up for their emails! I hope you all love these dresses as much as I love them! Let me know in the comments which one is your favorite!

For sizing reference I am 5’4″ and Size 2.




10 Ways To Style Graphic Tees

10 Ways To Style Graphic Tees

Hi friends! I am SO excited about today’s post! If you know me, you know I absolutely love fashion, and I guess you can say the creative side of me comes out when it comes to styling outfits!

A while back I was with shopping with my best friend and she was on the fence about buying a dress because she didn’t know how to style it. Without even thinking I started listing off about 5 different ways I would style the piece, and she laughed because it was such a typical “me” response. This moment got me thinking about how I would style my own graphic tees that I sell in my Details and Swirls shop! Of course I have discovered numerous ways I style my tees, and realized it could be so helpful if I shared my styling tips with you all!

I know so many of you all have my long sleeve tees, so I came up with 10 different ways to style my graphic long sleeve tees, I hope you love them!

1 – Classic

2 – Edgy

3 – Cute

4 – Athletic

5 – Statement Jeans

6 – Girly

7 – Vest

8 – Long Sweater

9 – Trendy

10 – Athleisure

I rounded up all of the pieces I used to style these looks below! Some of my pieces were super old, so I linked the best matches I could find!

Details and Swirls Turns One!

Details and Swirls Turns One!

My hand-lettering business, Details and Swirls, is officially one! Oh what a crazy year this has been. I set out in December 2018 to launch my very own hand-lettering business. I was excited, nervous, and naive. I set myself a goal of booking two rental weddings for the summer of 2019. I thought if I really worked hard marketing my business, and putting myself out there I could achieve this goal. Flash forward to over 25 rental weddings (one of which was published in People & Style Me Pretty!), combined with over 500 Etsy orders, a new blog platform, and much more! I am blown away by everything this first year of business has brought, and I am just getting started! Cheers to 2020 and bigger and better goals for Details and Swirls & Details and Danielle! The sky is the limit!

The Best Designer Bag Dupe!

The Best Designer Bag Dupe!

Hello friends! I am jumping on here to write a quick post on my newest obsession! I am by no means a designer bag girl. I have never owned a designer bag, and I never will. Personally I do not see the value in them, and I would MUCH rather spend that kind of money elsewhere! While I am not a designer bag person, I still love the look of some designer bags! I’ve had my eye on the Louis Vutton onthego bag for a while now, and as I mentioned, I could probably write a list of a million things I would rather spend $2,500 on!! In prepping for my trip to Italy, I wanted to find a tote with a similar style to this bag and I came across the most AMAZING dupe!

This dupe is not a knockoff of the original by any means, but it has many similar design details, and is an Amazon Prime find at $50! I did not have the highest of hopes for the quality, but I was so pleasantly surprised when it arrived. It is incredibly well made, durable, and the perfect size! All in all, I am SO happy with my purchase, and have been using it has my go-to tote bag, weekender bag, and travel bag ever since!

If you order it, let me know if you love it as much as I do! You can shop the dupe here!

Sunday Greys

I have officially found my go-to weekend outfit for the start of fall. I am obsessed with all things Red Dress Boutique, so over their Labor Day weekend sale I snagged up a few things I had my eye on!

I now have this bodysuit in all three colors and it is perfect! I love layering it under chunky cardigans on cooler days, or wearing it with just some high waisted jeans and a cute headband on warmer days! And this cardigan…literally feels like you are wearing a blanket! Safe to say I will be living in this the next couple of months!
