Black on Black

Sweater || Leather Leggings || OTK Boots, also found here || Earrings || Handbag || Sunglasses

Oh the Christmas crazy is over.  I know most people are totally over the holidays by this point in the year but I have to be honest–I’m a little sad.  I loved having time to do nothing but spend time with family, go out to yummy dinners,  drink wine, open presents and lounge around in sweats.  But then again, who doesn’t right?!  I am excited to have NYE right around the corner and start a new year soon though!

We shot this black on black look last weekend (when in doubt go for black, right?) and I have worn this sweater a couple times since.  It’s a good one!  Just be sure to size up.  I think it runs really small.  I ordered a medium because I wanted it to be super slouchy and over-sized and it’s a lot more fitted than I expected.  That being said–I still love the simplicity of it.  I might snag another color too because the price is hard to beat!

I am loving the pop of white against this all black look with these earrings.  They are light weight and how fun is the shape??  I always think BaubleBar has the best statement earrings.  Plus, these make an outfit look put together even if it isn’t.  Just throw your hair in a ponytail and pop these on!

Ok… so now all we have to do is get through the week and then we have something else to celebrate!  I am definitely looking forward to popping some champs this coming weekend!

Nike for the Win

This cold weather has me super content to wear athleisure outfits and call it a day.  Whenever I am able to throw on leggings and tennies then I am all about it.

So that being said–I could not resist this new Nike pullover when I found it.  I love that it’s long enough to wear with leggings and it is the perfect weight.

I read a few of the reviews before I placed it in my cart and people were complaining about it not being fleece inside.  Clearly, I ordered regardless [haha] and I have to say.. I’m a fan.  I think I like it even better because it’s not too bulky.  But the BEST part??  Hands down–the pockets!  [I sized up 2 sizes for an oversized fit and length and got a M]

&& we can’t skip over these leggings because they are definitely worth buying.  They are Zella (my current fave) and you all have seen me wear them a lot in my IG pics–I LOVE the material on the front and the fact they they are high-waisted.  [wearing an xs here & I am right under 5′ 4″]

Be prepared to see some more casual looks on WW in the coming months too because (along with the rest of America, I know,I know) plan to get my butt in gear in the new year.  I want to say hello to burning calories instead of eating them for a change.

But… until then… pass the sugar cookies puuuuhlease!

The perfect sweater dress & statement earrings for the holidays!

Happy Monday all!  The weeks seem easier knowing we have the holidays right ahead of us, don’t they??  We spent this past Saturday dressed in tacky Christmas gear with our friends at Santacon so I feel like we got a jump start on the festivities.  There was even a reindog parade!  Did you catch all the dogs dressed up in costumes on my snapchat?!  So. Cute.

So now I’m ready for some holiday style that doesn’t involve sparkly deer sunglasses from Walmart.  (Although they were fun to wear last weekend, ha)  && I thought I would share an outfit idea that I would actually wear time and time again.  Sometimes I get all caught up in super festive, dressy outfits when I think holiday and I forget that I don’t really have that many occassions to wear them.  My family get togethers are always casual so I wanted to find an outfit to share with you all that included a great basic.  This sweater dress is just that, let me tell you!  It’s such an easy wear, under $60 and comes in other colors too.  I know it’s one I will get a lot of wear out of because I had been on the hunt for a good black one for months.

I paired mine with my favorite over-the-knee boots from Marc Fischer and you could easily add tights if it was extra chilly!

I haven’t been wearing as much jewelry lately as I used to.  I usually stick to small pieces like these rings but I have been in the mood to throw some statement earrings in the mix. When I was searching around I found these Vanessa Mooney cuties from Nordstrom and I knew I had to order!

dsc_2845The fact that these aren’t heavy (I find that most large earrings are) and that they come in burgundy totally sold me. They would also be perfect for New Year’s!  I plan to wear mine with my hair up in a ponytail and a sweater soon too. They would make a great gift too because there are lots of colors to choose from.  Here are a few more options that were also contenders:

Do you all have all your shopping done yet?  I have a few more things to order in the next couple days and then I’ll be done.  I will be sharing some more ideas on the blog this week that you can still order online and get in time so stay tuned!

This easy outfit was perfect for this afternoon–we met my fam for some deep dish pizza, yummm!  It doesn’t get any more “weekend” in my book than this.  Leggings, a cozy sweater & a warm coat!

thumbnail_img_8191I’ve seriously had this Bernardo coat on since it came out of the box ha! && these leggings by Zella are worth grabbing.. promise!  They are high-waited and the details make them stand out a little. [wearing an xs]  Then I added a bit of trend to the look with these Steve Madden velvet sneakers [wearing my normal size, but I wish I had sized up a 1/2] , this Urban Outfitters satin hat [on sale!] and these Quay over-sized glasses [under $45]!

Hope you all had a perf Sunday!

I had been on the hunt for a long coat like this for a while & I am SO glad I found this one!  It checks all the requirement boxes that I had in my mind.  It’s down so it’s super warm.  It’s packable–even comes with a little pouch that you can fold it down and stuff it into for travel.  It’s got a ribbed knit cuffs at the end of the sleeve to keep the cool air out.  It’s got a high collar (which I love).  It’s really soft to the touch, kind of buttery!  && it’s on SALE right now and comes in petite sizes.  Done & Done! [wearing an xs]

I also love it in the color they call soil/black.  If I already had a black casual coat then I would have gone for that one.

This is the first time I have purchased from brand.  It’s called Bernardo and I was super impressed with the quality at this price point.  I also love how they keep in mind the sillhoutte.  Some puffy coats can seem like a big pillow case on, but this one has front and back darts at the waist.

Oh and I can’t forget to mention this sweater–it’s PERFECT!  So soft and the length is great.  [wearing a 4 US Fits like a 0-2]

These Quay Sunglasses are new too and they’re on sale right now!  Snag them while they are still in stock.  I’m ordering the other color today because I love how oversized they are.

We’re up in Cincinnatti today for the Santa-con celebration!  We snapped these pics as we got coffee this morning becuase we came up early to get a little work done before a day with friends.  I’ll be sharing tid bits of the party on my IG story and snapchat so follow along if you’re in the mood!  Cheers!
