This stripe top is such a great transitional item to buy and I could not be more excited to share two different ways to wear it with you all! Trust me, this is one item you do NOT want to miss out on!
This off the shoulder sweater surprised me. I picked it up a couple months back (it’s still available in all sizes, not to worry) and I figured it would be a good one to have for when I wanted to dress up a bit but still needed to stay warm. And it has come in handy more than I realized it would! The best part? It comes in 7 colors and is under $30!
Happy Monday, loves! I’m kicking off the week ahead of us by sharing a fun outfit and 3 podcasts I listened to last week. My sweater is a new one and I am in love! I cannot get enough of the texture and I am feeling the oversized slouchy fit. I think it will be the perfect one to pair with denim shorts in the summer too. I always like to have knits like this to throw on with them over a bathing suit. It also comes in lilac. [wearing a small]
Perfect red sweaters for the holidays—check. Done! When I found this one online I knew it was the one. It’s a soft material (zero itch factor) and a true red. I love the classic cable mixed with the trendy cut of it too. I think it is perfect with jeans and will be adorable with a high waist skirt! FYI.. shop this one fast!!! It’s selling so quickly so I linked a few different retailers that have it available down below. [wearing a small]
I paired it with my favorite chunky beanie and some neutrals when we were in Toronto (full travel diary to come soon)! && these boots and jeans are a MUST. Both are staples in my closet. My boots are still on sale FYI and run true to size. I went one size up in my jeans. They’re a very comfortable stretchy material! We took a quick stroll around the Christmas Market in the Distillery District and it was so cute! Lots of little vendors, pretty lights and food stands.
I hope you all are having a good week! I am trying to savor these days before the holidays when everything seems exciting and festive. I know the January blues will hit soon enough so we might as well enjoy every second of Dec! We are having some friends down to the lake house on Friday for some appetizers, cocktails and board games and I cannot wait to enjoy some time around the Christmas tree!
Let’s get straight to it–shoes that EVERY girl needs in her closet? Over-the-knee boots! They are hands down my most worn item because they are just so versatile. I wear them with jeans (as seen here), leggings, skirts & dresses. I wear them during the week & on the weekends. But I am not going to lie, finding the puuuuuurect pair was not an easy task.
You all know Nordstrom is my favorite large retailer to shop so I definitely went to their site when looking for a pair of tall boots to replace my $40 pair I found at Kmart (yes, I said Kmart) years ago. I tried several pairs and sent many back (TG for the free ship & return policy) before I landed on this Marc Fisher pair. I loved the shape of toe on this pair–slighted pointed with a touch of hardware–and the height of the boot–I wanted them to go up well above my knee but not be overwhelming. And I also love how they tie in the back and have a zipper on the inside of the ankle. This makes them easy to get on and off (you don’t need to lay down on the bed and beg someone to pull them off, haha) and the tie helps them stay put and not look slouchy or sloppy. They have also held up great! [wearing a sz 8, I always go up in boots so I can add thick warm socks]
It’s only Tuesday but I think this week will go by pretty quickly. We have several things to do around the house to prep for a little birthday get together we are hosting on Saturday for my 30th! Don’t you love having people over because it gives you that push you needed to get something done that you have been talking about for months? We had been wanting to redo the piece of furniture we use for a bar cart to make it more modern and last Sunday we finally got around to it! I will share the finished product and other tid bits on my Instastory this week. Hope you all are having a good one!
Oh, and just a side note–I think a over-sized sweater and OTK boots makes the perfect outfit for Thanksgiving day if your fam does a casual get-together. These pieces would be great to order!
