    Striped Shimmer Sweater

    Yesterday I had a snow day and was off from work. It was a good thing too because I was scrambling to figure out what to wear to work. If you want to skip my story, then just scroll down for my outfit details. Otherwise, keep reading! So what happened was on Sunday evening when the snow started to really come down, I was at my parents’ house. I was there for a birthday dinner (my dad and brother). We originally had dinner reservations but the snow storm was poised to hit around dinner time so we decided to order our food to go so that we’d be done eating…

    Blue Velour Sweatshirt

    When I think of velour, I think of the 90s or early 2000s and matching top and bottom track suits. But I guess it’s making a comeback because I’ve been seeing some velour sweatshirts lately! In my opinion, it’s great for loungewear. Not as luxurious or warm as velvet, but great for pieces like this blue sweatshirt. I love how vibrant the blue of this sweatshirt is and the white piping stripes is a cute detail that helps break up the blue. Sweatshirt: Abercrombie & Fitch | Leggings: J.Crew | Boots: UGG This sweatshirt is perfect for wearing around the house and also for any casual outing such as running…

    Red Plaid + Gold Layered Necklace

    I love plaid. I could wear it all year round, but I know it’s often seen as more of a winter style. This red plaid top buttons down all the way and is nice and soft. I hate rough plaid tops. To dress it up a little, I paired it with a layered gold disc necklace. The discs have a hammered look to them, so it’s not your typical coin style necklace that we all know and love, but this one is pretty too. Top: Express | Leggings: J.Crew | Necklace: Vici | Boots: UGG Along with the gold layered necklace, I wore this red and black plaid top with black…

    February 2019 Favorites

    February flew by in a flash (alliteration anyone?). I can’t believe it went by so quick! January was a little bit of a crawl, but February really went by in the blink of an eye. I was supposed to go to a blogger event last night and I did get there after driving for an hour, got dinner, got Starbucks….and then got an email saying the event had to be canceled last minute….It was a bummer especially after my friend and I drove all the way up there but oh well. Anyway, I have a few February favorites to share with you so let’s get to it! First up, in…

    Color Block Chevron Sweater

    If you know me, you know I love my sweaters. I collect cute ones every winter and don’t get rid of nearly as many as I buy so I’ve got a ton of sweaters in my closet. This color block chevron sweater is a new one this season. The colors give me 70s vibes, which if you’ve been following me for a while you also know I’m totally in to these days. Sweater: Vici | Jeans: LC Lauren Conrad via Kohl’s | Boots: UGG I love all the colors in this sweater and they go together so well. This sweater is so soft and definitely oversized with its slightly ballooned…

    Oversized Knit Turtleneck

    I’m back to share the second look (of three) that I shot with Lauren for our winter shoot. For this look I wore an oversized open knit turtleneck, jeans, and boots. I’m pretty particular about turtlenecks because I don’t like things really close to my neck, but since this one is oversized, it’s nice and loose. Sweater: Vici | Jeans: Express | Boots: Red Dress Boutique | Ring: BaubleBar This sweater is so cozy. I love oversized, chunky sweaters and this one is just my style for cold winter days. It’s open-knit so I wore a tank top underneath. Originally, I planned to wear a long sleeve tee underneath, which…

    Velvet Polka Dot Pants

    Dress pants can get boring to wear to work. I mean, how many different variations can you wear? Plus, unless you work somewhere that allows you to dress casually or more freely, then you keep your pants pretty basic – not even straying too far in terms of color. So when you find pants that put a small twist on a classic, it’s a welcome change. These navy blue pants have an all-over black polka dot detail, which is cute in itself, but the polka dots are actually velvet! It’s such a good idea and a great way to update a classic look. Both the sweater and pants are from…

    Oscars 2019 Fashion

    Did you catch the Oscars last night? I was legit laughing out loud at Melissa McCarthy coming out for the costume award, dressed like a queen from the 18th century with stuffed animals attached all over! So as I did my homework on the red carpet fashion last night I have to say I wasn’t wow’ed by anyone’s outfits. There were some looks I really liked, but none that I’m super excited to share on here today. Nevertheless, I did pick out 9 of my favorites of the bunch! First up, I love Irina Shayk’s black gown with gold fringe tassels at the waist and wrists. This gown is also backless…

    Bow Earrings

    I first saw earrings that looked like gift bows not this past Christmas, but the Christmas before. They were Kate Spade earrings and so cute! Unfortunately, by the time I saw them they were sold out. But, then a few months later I saw a similar pair from Red Dress Boutique so I had to grab them! I wore the earrings to work last week and decided to snap a few photos so you can see the cuteness for yourself. I wore the silver gift bow earrings with a sparkly blue sweater and grey satin-y bow on the shoulder. So this outfit was kind of bows on bows. Top: LC…

    Beige Leopard

    I’ve mentioned it before, but I’m really in to leopard prints this year. It ‘s surprising considering for years and years I never wore animal print and said I would never! But all of a sudden, this year something switched in me and I am drawn to the print! Albeit, subtle iterations of it, but still it’s a huge deal for me. This beige leopard sweater is just what I mean by subtle. It’s not bright or in your face. It’s subtle, soft, and comfortable with it’s mock neck, slightly ballooned sleeves, and legging friendly length.
