Layers

I’m pretty sure the best part about Fall fashion is layers.  I love throwing on a cute sweater, my favorite surplus jacket, and a cozy scarf.  And these booties?  They are hands down my favorite, and they come in a bunch of colors.  Definitely worth every penny.

Cozy

Scarves have always been a favorite accessory of mine in the winter.  But this gorgeous pink number just might be my favorite scarf.  Ever.  Not only do I love the color, but the material is so incredibly soft and cozy.  It really is the perfect statement accessory for colder weather, AND it makes me feel like I’m wrapped up in a cloud.

Field Jacket

I love a good jacket!  Especially this time of year when the temps are warming up, but it’s not quite warm enough (at least where I live!) to go without some layers.  I had been eyeing this jacket at JCrew for quite some time, so when I finally went on sale, I pounced.  It is a classic piece that I will have in my closet for years to come and lately that is what I am trying to focus on-making smart shopping decisions.

Pop of Plaid

Well hello there, and happy Tuesday sweet readers!  Today, I am sharing with you a 2nd outfit idea to wear to your Thanksgiving dinner.  Yesterday, I posted a super casual outfit (a tunic and leggings), and today, I wanted to share with you a dressier option-with a pop of plaid (of course!).  And one thing all of my outfits ideas have in common this week?  COMFORT!!!  While I am all for being stylish on any given day, to me, comfort is key on Thanksgiving! And a relaxed fit dress (with pockets!), paired back to my favorite plaid shirt and leather jacket certainly seems to fit the bill!

Put A Bow On It

When I think about my own personal style, girly and sweet are definitely not the first words that come to mind.  And while I think hearts and bows and frills are all adorable, I don’t normally gravitate towards those types of ensembles.  BUT, every once in a while, I do think it’s fun to put on a girly dress and pay homage to a more feminine style.  And as an added bonus, while most of us are still experiencing in between temps, I absolutely love the option of wearing a button down shirt underneath a dress to change things up from my typical go-to cardi or jean jacket…

Bonjour!

I love a good graphic tee.  And since I missed out on the Kiss tee that JCrew launched this fall, I pounced on the Hello tee as soon as I saw it in store.  And boy am I glad that I did.  It’s already made a plethora of appearances in my daily wardrobe, including on NYE when I wore it with a sequin jacket, ripped jeans, and sparkly pumps.  I mean what better way to say hello to the new year than on your t-shirt? And because a t-shirt and ripped jeans back to dressed up accessories is still going to be a go-to look for me in 2014, I can’t wait to come up with more ways to style this tee. But today’s look is probably my favorite to date-ultra laid back and causal with a splash of statement jewelry and a flash of silver accessories…

I don’t know about you all, but yesterday was painful.  I was so not ready for vacation to be over and to be back at work.  But the good news is, we are heading to Denver this weekend.  So I am definitely looking forward to a road trip with my sweet family and a little time spent in the Mile High City!

Hope your week is off to a far less painful start than mine! 😉

 

Casual Sparkle

Hello everyone!  I hope that you all had a wonderful Christmas.  I must admit, I am feeling a little sad that it’s all over.  Why is it that the things we look forward to the most always seem to go by the most quickly?  But on a positive note, I am really looking forward to 2014 and all of the promise and adventure that a new year holds for us all.  And with that, I thought I might share yet another holiday plaid look on the blog today, but this time layered with a little sparkle.  A look that is casual enough to wear during the daytime, or perfect for a cozy New Year’s eve spent at home…

Boots

I have a slight obsession with cognac boots-or more specifically these cognac boots.  I wear them more than any other piece of footwear that I own and I am feeling pretty bummed that they are all but about worn out.  And because I knew this would most likely be their last season, I have been on the hunt for a replacement pair all fall.  And surprisingly I have had absolutely zero luck.  Maybe I’ve set my standards too high, but how hard could it possibly be to find a pair in the right shade of cognac with a low heel (wedge or stacked), wide enough to fit my calves, that go with everything, and are neither too dressy, nor too casual?  Apparently it’s nearly impossible.  Looks like a trip to the cobbler is in my very near future-I need all the help I can get prolonging the life of these babies…

My Vest Accessory

When I originally put this outfit together, it was sans vest. But one thing I have learned about blogging is that sometimes, the more layers and jewelry you pile one, the better the photos turn out. Apparently there are some instances where more is more! But I have to say that I think the vest really made this outfit complete, and not just for the sake of blog photos. And so, it should come as no surprise, that I am absolutely loving the vest trend again this summer. So if you haven’t already, denim or surplus, it’s time to add one to your closet!

Monotone

Sometimes throwing together a monochromatic look is a welcome change from the usual. Plus, pairing two like colors is an easy concoction to create and a great way to change-up your look without investing in anything new…
