H&M Sweater, Tights, and Dress (worn as a skirt), Vince Camuto Pumps, J Crew Edie Bag, Michael Kors Watch, Joe Fresh Sunnies

The only sad thing about fall fashion is that a lot of cute summer dresses quickly become irrelevant in your closet. I thought I'd try to extend the life of one of my favorite summer dresses by layering it with a sweater today - and you know what? I think I quite like it worn this way!

Happy Halloween friends!

A Fall Floral

Banana Republic Factory Coat, Zara TRF Dress (available here!), Michael Kors Watch, T+J Designs bracelet, J Crew Edie Bag, Oasis Shoes via Asos, Joe Fresh Sunnies

When I saw this dress on Zara, there was no doubt about it, it had to be mine. The fall floral is absolutely stunning - just look at all the colors in there! I was totally drawn by the fit & flare shape of the dress and the three-quarter sleeves which are perfect for a little bit of extra warmth. I think it works perfectly as a fall piece, but I love how this dress could easily work for a Christmas party as well with black tights and booties. And to top it off, the dress is so comfortable! Zara really hit the mark on this piece! 

Happy Wednesday friends!

Plaid on Plaid

Buffalo Check Joe Fresh Sweater (still available) & Sunnies, DL 1961 Denim, Smart Set Plaid Scarf, Rebecca Minkoff MAC Mini Bag, Aldo Pumps, Nails are Revlon's Revlon Red 

Happy Monday Friends! How was your weekend? Mine was kind of a bust, but it's okay because I bought shoes to cheer myself up! Spoken like a true shopaholic, am I right? I'm wearing one of the pairs I bought in today's post, and I have to say, I'm absolutely smitten with them. I had been looking for a pair of grey pumps and these are absolutely perfect - leather, sexy shape and subtle snake skin print? Yes please!

Can I also put in a word on how awesome this Joe Fresh sweater is? I bought it a few days ago and cannot seem to take it off. It's so comfortable and cozy! And as a bonus, I'm twins with Kate from O My Heart today! If you're not convinced about my plain B&W version, check out how cute the pink is on Kate! Have I convinced you you need this sweater yet?

A Little Romance

H&M Sweater, Paige Printed Denim, Rebecca Minkoff MAC Mini Bag, Aldo Pumps, Joe Fresh Sunnies, Michael Kors Darci Watch, Vince Camuto Bangle from Envy, BGBGeneration Bangle gifted by BFF for my birthday!

I was so cold that day! Can you tell from my red nose and hands? I occurred to me that day that blogging in the winter is going to be quite the challenge!

Can we talk about how much I love this little H&M sweater I picked up last week? It's the perfect soft pink color and it's super cozy and warm! I wore it with flowered printed skinnies for an extra feminine flair, but I think it would look great with anything! A little black skater skirt and heels? Black skinnies with black booties? It's seriously going to get a ton of wear!

And a little shout-out to my BFF Émanuèle for the gorgeous bangle she got me for my birthday! Told ya it would make it on the blog! ;)

Army Tones

H&M Cardigan and Belt, J Crew Blythe Blouse and Ring, Gap Skinnies, Elizabeth & James Pumps, Rebecca Minkoff Bag, House of Harlow Bangle, Michael Kors Watch, Unknown and Vintage Rings

Good Morning!

I've been wearing these Gap skinnies loads these past few weeks - they are the perfect match to a cozy sweater and my Sam Edelman booties. I wanted to try and dress them up a little for these pictures since I was wearing them to work. By adding pumps and a silk blouse, I think it makes a half decent work outfit, don't you think? If you're planning on buying darker khakis from Gap, please wash them inside out! I was an idiot - I didn't bother with these pants and the color has faded a lot!

Already the middle of the week!

Most Worn: Baubles Edition

Hello friends! I thought I'd start this week off with something a little different - a peek into my most worn baubles!

If you've been following my blog for a bit, you can probably tell that I tend to stick to the same pieces when it comes to accessorizing, and to be honest, it's because I don't own a whole lot of jewelry! So you'll probably already be familiar with the following pieces.

1. BaubleBar Tortoise Dragonfly Bib Necklace - I wear this too much. It seems to go with everything in my closet! Word to the wise: if you see a piece you like on BaubleBar, snatch it before it's no longer available!
2. Gorjana Leather Wrap Gold Bracelet - I got lucky with this one and found it on the Club Monaco website for $5! I wear it all the time - I find it to be a nice variation on gold since the bracelet is leather.
3. Michael Kors Darci Glitz Watch - Searched long and hard for the perfect Michael Kors watch at a decent price. I thought that since my jewelry tastes are pretty simple, a little bling on my watch wouldn't hurt! I love this watch and wear it every single day!
4. & 5. Gorjana Necklace & Earrings - Both are pieces I wear when I'm craving a dainty piece of jewelry. They're both great with casual or dressier looks.
6. House of Harlow Aztec Bangle - Another great find! Found this bangle at my local Winners on sale for $16! This bangle is great with any look, but I love wearing it with a casual dress, or jeans and a tee.
7. J Crew Feather Ring - I've gotten so many compliments on this ring! It was kind of an impulse buy during the J Crew 40% sale and I didn't know I'd like it as much as I do - glad I took the plunge!
8. H&M Necklace - Kind of an impulse buy as well as I was looking for an edgier necklace to go with a black dress I wanted to wear to an event. Turns out this piece goes with a lot more with just a black dress. I love the triangular shape of the crystals and the chunkier chain of this necklace.
9. Vintage Bangle - Found this bangle at Value Village and it kind of started my love affair with gold jewelry. I don't wear it too often because I'm scared to lose it as the clasp opens quite easily. Either way, I love this piece.
10. Vintage Ring - This is easily my favorite pieces of jewelry I own. And it's partly because it has a story. My mom's mother-in-law (my grandmother) gifted this ring to her. For YEARS I begged my mother to pass it on to me because it was too big for her. After hearing "no" for years, I settled on wearing it when I came home for the holidays, or for special occasions. Out of the blue one day, after I had settled on the idea that this ring was a "borrow only" item, she gave it to me! She said she didn't want to be someone who holds on to jewelry for nothing - better give the item to someone who will enjoy it. And I definitely do! This ring is so special to me and its made even more special because my mom gifted it to me. Thanks mom!

And that's it! My favorite pieces of jewelry, photographed and explained. Hope you enjoyed this post!

Birthday Girl

American Eagle Sweater, Paige Denim Jeans, H&M Belt, Hat & Trench, Michael Kors Watch, Rebecca Minkoff MAC Mini Bag, Joe Fresh Sunnies, Oasis Pumps, BaubleBar Necklace (again!) 

Today is my birthday friends! While I've moped around all last week, depressed about getting older, this week, I've come to realize that that's pretty ridiculous. It's not like I can do anything about it anyway! Besides, being 25 was pretty great! I finally started to feel like an adult (rather than a lost university graduate), started living with my boy, and settled into a "real" job. And I started this blog when I was 25! If 25 was better than 24, than 26 can only better than 25 right? I think the best has yet to come and I can't wait to see what year 26 of my life brings.

Are you tired of seeing that BaubleBar necklace yet? I swear, I'll try to retire it for a couple days! Is it weird to say that it's my most comfortable necklace? The flat chain totally makes me forget it's even on, and it never needs adjusting! Three cheers for fuss-free necklaces!

Happy Thursday friends!

J Crew Sweater, Joe Fresh Denim, Rebecca Minkoff Bag, Franco Sarto Booties, Ray Ban Sunnies, BaubleBar Necklace

Today has been crazy busy, but I just wanted to stop by and post these pictures of a look I wore last week. I kept it pretty simple but added my new favorite BaubleBar necklace to it. I've been a little more than obsessed with BaubleBar lately as they have so many good pieces in lately! And they're having a 20% off necklaces today so treat yourself to that bauble you've been eyeing!
