Monochrome Monday

Happy end of December! We have been lucky to have some warmer weather, so I've been catching up on my vitamin D.

Collared Shirts & Cardigans

I hope everyone had a lovely Christmas! Today I wanted to wear something comfy and casual while I went out and did some returns.


I bought this golden colored cardigan at Banana Republic on Christmas Eve because they were having a killer sale. Currently they're doing 50% off of all of their merchandise, and a lot of it is already marked down on sale. 

I love the richness of the color, gold detail in the buttons, and the thicker weight.


Blouse: Target


Belt: JCrew


Bag: Michael Kors


Flats: Target



I love mixing bold colors and contrasting them with black and white basics. I hope you all find some great after Christmas deals, and received everything you wanted from Santa yesterday! I had an amazing time spending the day with my family, and kicking-butt in a two hour marathon of Trivial Pursuit!

Hunter Green & Hunter Boots

I did some last minute holiday shopping yesterday and wanted to share with you what I wore. The weather has been incredibly rainy, but the temperatures have been up in the 60's! Having a white Christmas has become questionable for everyone in my area...


The top is a green chiffon button down by Michael Kors. I love how vibrant it is, plus the color puts me in the holiday spirit. 


I wore this skull patterned circle scarf from Charming Charlie's. I fell in love with the skull scarves by Alexander McQueen awhile back, and have been looking for a similar inspired-by piece.

 I sometimes like a little bit of edge in my wardrobe and this scarf does just the trick. I loved it because the base color is navy and the detailing is a cream and black, so it goes with almost any outfit! I brought this scarf with me to New York, and have been getting a lot of use out of it.


I paired it with this black cross-body bag from Forever 21. I also brought this bag with me to New York; it is great for running errands because it allows you to be hands free, and this bag has lots of zipper and pocket space.


I wore my navy Hunter boots to top off the look, and protect me from all the rain and left over slush on the ground.


I hope you all are excited and prepared for the holidays (I am getting there)! Look for a new post this week where I show you my New Years and holiday party outfit looks!

What I Wore: New York City

This is an outfit I wore for an interview in New York City when I was there last week. The interviews were fashion oriented, therefore I wanted to show my personal taste but also keeping the outfit in a neutral tone with just a pop of colorful accents.


I love the bold black and white houndstooth pattern of this dress. The geometric graphic make it fun to pair other pieces with. To break up the pattern I wore a simple grey blazer and black tights to carry out the black in the dress, elongate the body and give a rest for the eye. 

Dress: Charming Charlie
Blazer: Silence & Noise - Urban Outfitters

I wore my simple leather handbag in a greyish-beige color to continue with the neutral base.

Bag: Kate Spade


The statement necklace has accents of a lavender color as well as a plain white crystal which are facetted in a half-flower shape. The colors blend well with the dress, and pick up the grey tones in the jacket. 

I would highly recommend checking out the clearance at high end retailers for jewelry because usually you can find a nice quality, well made pieces for a fraction of the cost. I love Nordstrom Rack (which sells Nordstrom designers on sale) which is where I found this piece.


For shoes, I wore a darker plum-purple colored suede pump. They pick up the purple color in the necklace, and tie the outfit together. These heels are from H&M and are a great colorful piece to add to your winter wardrobe (plus they are actually comfortable to walk in). For an inexpensive shoe, you can tell they are a higher quality based on the material on the outside and interior lining.


This is an outfit that I would wear again for formal sorority meetings or any other business casual event. It is comfortable while still looking professional.


By taking the blazer off you can easily transition this dress into a night time look. This dress outfit is great for holiday parties or get togethers, or with boots can be a fun casual look.

I hope you are all are prepared for the big Holiday week! I know I still have some last minute things to do (leave it to me to procrastinate...)

Until next time,

Sweater Weather

It is only day two of my winter break at home and I have been trying to keep myself busy.  I started making a book/Netflix list to help keep myself occupied for a month (other suggestions are welcome too, of course!)

 Today I ran around and did some errands in this snowy winter weather we have been having.


 I kept my outfit simple with a crew neck pullover sweater in an oatmeal color from Target. I absolutely love the neutral color of this sweater because it is so versatile and easy to pair up with colorful accessories. 


I wanted to show off my new necklace that I recently purchased from JCrew on their clearance. JCrew has impeccable quality jewelry, but usually I am scared away by the price tag. This piece was on sale in the store for $24.99 with an extra 30% off. The color combination is very unique, and the neutral color of the sweater helps pick up the amber and gold detailing in the piece.

You can find the necklace online by clicking here!


I wore jeans and my olive green military style jacket from Target. I love this jacket because it has a fur lining on the hood and a plaid inside that reminds me of Christmas time! The bag I wore is a neutral beige-grey color by Kate Spade.


Lastly, I wore my Sorel inspired winter boots from Old Navy. These are great for trekking through the snow and I love the extra fur detail on the top which makes being practical look cute.


I hope you are enjoying your time before the holidays and getting in your last minute shopping! Stay warm until next time!
