    Olive Green Plaid Ruana + Foldover Wrap Skirt

    One of my favorite things to do each week is figure out what I’m going to wear for the week. It seems silly, but it really helps me get through the week to plan out outfits – especially when I want to put something together to share on the blog. The outfit I’m sharing today is one I wore on a weekend last month and I was so excited to put together. I got this olive green plaid ruana from Francesca’s earlier in the fall and I knew it would look perfect with my caramel colored fold-over wrap skirt from LOFT. I also thought the skirt and ruana would look…

    Embellished Mock Layer Sweater

    Today I’m sharing my favorite new sweater of the season – this embellished mock layer sweater. I love that it is long enough to wear with leggings, because anything you can wear with leggings is a winner in my book! The mock layer helps with this too. The embellishment at the neckline is so pretty and not too elaborate. And to complete the amazing-ness of this sweater it has a loose honeycomb style pattern. Sweater: Simply Vera via Kohl’s | Leggings: Milk26 via Nordstrom Rack | Boots: Chinese Laundry via DSW | Purse: Coach As mentioned above, this sweater works perfectly with leggings so I wore them of course! I wore…

    Red Plaid + Lace Top

    It’s time for my first fashion/OOTD post of the new year! Sorry (or not sorry) to say it’s from 2015 though. This is an easy look I put together for dinner weeks ago. It really is a look that was just thrown together, but because the back of this cute and bright, red plaid top features lace, it makes the look seem less casual and less like I didn’t put a ton of thought into it. Combine that with my over-the-knee boots and now it really looks dressier! Top: Express Leggings: Milk26 via Nordstrom Rack Boots: Chinese Laundry via DSW I love how rich the red in this plaid top is. I find…

    Paisley Skater Skort

    Two trends I’m loving are skater skirts and over-the-knee boots. So I ordered a few skater skirts from ASOS a while ago. I got 2 solid-colored skirts and 1 paisley. Now, the info for the paisley one (and I double checked) said “skirt” so I was surprised to find upon receiving it that it was actually a skort! No complaints from me though because I love skorts and I actually think it makes this piece look even better because it makes the pleats more prominent. Skort: ASOS Top: Old Navy Denim Jacket: LOFT Boots: Chinese Laundry via DSW Watch: Fossil I love this paisley skort. So as to not take away…

    Over-The-Knee Boots

      Over-The-Knee Boots by lifeaccordingtojamie featuring thigh boots Over-the-knee boots are all the rage and I am completely on board. In fact, I got a pair for a steal a few weeks ago. I styled them for a look last weekend and it will make it on here soon! In the meantime, I recreated this look by actress Ashley Madekwe. I may not have liked her character on the TV show, “Revenge”, but I do like her style! ***** I love the grey over-the-knee boots she wore and it looks beautiful paired with her light blue, almost mint, sweater and mini skirt. Mint green is one of my favorite colors…
