november-2016-005Sometimes, when I’m tired, I just have to break out the #basic wardrobe.  This picture was taken right before Thanksgiving break.  And I was tired.  TIRED.  So a cozy cardi, leggings, and my trusty booties were just the thing I needed. Do you have a favorite cozy basic item?

Finally, FINALLY, fall has fallen.  I’ve been waiting impatiently for the time of sweaters and scarves and it seems like the time has arrived.  I paired this buffalo check flannel with a pleather pleated skirt to welcome in the cooler weather.  Nothing says fall more than a good plaid flannel, amirite? And even though I purchased this skirt about a year ago, it is still right on trend-pleats, pleather, and midi length.

Bomb(er)s Away!


So, bomber jackets have been having a moment.  They’ve had quite a bit of popularity for at least a season or two now and I finally caved this summer when I purchased this duster length bomber jacket.  It was originally purchased with some matching track pants but they were too big and long so I decided to just keep this bomber.  I paired it with some leggings and a tank for a streamlined casual look here.  I could see this maybe being elevated with a pair of heels. Have you hopped on the bomber train?

In the Trenches


I’m pretty sure that since I purchased this trench vest last Spring, I’ve worn this vest more times than I could possibly count.  I’m sure it has become annoying to my friends, family, and co-workers, but it’s versatility, comfort, color, and utility (pockets!!!) have made it a true staple of my wardrobe.  Dressed up or dressed down, this vest comes through every time.  How would you style it?

Okay, I have to admit, this cropped sweater is so hard for me to style.  I’m not one to show a bunch of skin, but I love the print of this sweater so I’m constantly trying to figure out how I can style this without the crop being an issue.  Here I paired it with these wine colored pants that I purchased last fall. I think it works, what do you think?


Biker Babe


When I showed this look to my mom she said it looked like I was ready to get on the back of a motorcycle.  HAHA  While I don’t agree with that, I think that this leather dress is a bit of a departure from my usual style.  I love the faux leather dress in a sweet, professional style.  In fact, I’m loving the faux leather trend in general.  I am thinking I may have this dress shortened a bit so it’s not quite so long–downfall of being short! I think the real MVP of this outfit is the polka dot shirt.  It’s a light weight crew which goes with so much!  A true neutral.
