What I’ve Been Wearing Wednesdays!

Hi Everyone!

Happy Wednesday!  We are officially in the home stretch of the holiday season!  I cannot believe that the Christmas holiday is less than one week away.  I am still searching for the perfect gift for the amazing Toby.  It’s SO hard to shop for him because I want to make sure that the gift adequately expresses my gratitude for ALL that he does to make my life SO amazing.  I know that material gifts do not matter to him, but I always want the “perfect” gift if you know what I mean.  I also know that gifts are not the real reason for the season! Well, enough of my rambling, LOL!  Today, I am sharing a few of the pieces that I have been wearing the past few weeks.  As you know, I love J. Crew pencil skirts, coats, and earrings (well, I love anything J. Crew, but you get the point!).  So, here are a few of my recent favorite outfits and shots:

I have said it before, but I will say it again, no other retailer does pencil skirts better than J. Crew.  The designs, the prints and patterns, and the fit are always absolutely superb and unique.  I find myself squealing each time that I see new pencil skirt released.  And, they are SO classic; J. Crew pencil skirts never go out of style.  The following image features one of my faves of all time.  This skirt is amazing.  The jacquard fabric is SOOO gorgeous.  The pattern is bold, stunning, and incredibly versatile.  The skirt can be paired with burgundy, pink, or neutrals such as black and camel.  The styling possibilities really are endless with this beauty. I styled the skirt with a burgundy sweater and a pink-ish faux fur coat, but I also plan to wear it with a neutral color turtleneck the way it is styled on the J. Crew website.  I decided to go neutral with the shoes to let the skirt pop.

Here is a preview of the look (I will share more details of the entire look soon)!:

I highly recommend this beautiful skirt!  I have also been wearing sequins non-stop!  I love the idea of dressing a sequin skirt up or down.  Graphic t-shirts and denim jackets are the perfect outfit pieces to dress sequins down a bit.  But, I also love the idea of wearing a fun coat or sweater to dress sequins up (even) more!  This look is one of my favorites, too!:

I took my normal size 16 in both of these skirts, so the fit is TTS!

In addition to the aforementioned skirts, I have been wearing (and loving) J. Crew tweed, floral, and plaid coats.  There is something so classic and fun about a gorgeous/timeless tweed/floral/plaid coat.  Here are two of my faves!:

I love the idea of wearing these bold and beautiful coats with distressed denim!  And, may we please talk about this fabulous bag?!?!  It is incredible!  The color is SO bold and gorgeous!! In terms of fit, I took a size 12 in both coats.

Details for the looks:

I would love to know what you’re wearing these days, so please share in the comments!

OOTD: All J. Crew!

Hi Everyone!

Here is the outfit that I wore to church earlier today.  I love how J. Crew pairs fun floral prints with super cute graphic t-shirts.  I love how a fun graphic tee can dress a bold floral pencil skirt down just a bit.  And, the outfit that I am wearing below is one of my faves because I love how the lettering on the t-shirt makes the pencil skirt print pop and stand out.  This skirt is super versatile; it’s easy to pull out so many colors. I am wearing a burgundy coat with this look, but the next time that I wear the skirt I plan to wear a bold blue coat.  It would also be super cute to pair this skirt with a neutral color palette.  The “heather carbon” color of this sweater looks great with the skirt, too.  And, this sweater works well, too. There are SO many gorgeous colors to pull out of this skirt.  The styling possibilities are seriously endless when it comes to this beautiful print.

Here is my outfit.  Photos by Samantha Moore Photography:

I loved adding a fun sequin pump to complement this beautiful print.  Sequin shoes look SO good against bold floral prints.  And, these beautiful shoes are a wardrobe staple in my opinion.  J. Crew, J. Crew Factory, and Madewell are all offering super fun glitter and sequin shoes, boots, and booties options that are SO versatile.  Here are a few of my favorites (I am including a gorgeous pair of Kate Spade booties and shoes below, too):

I highly recommend the skirt that I am wearing.  Again, it is incredibly versatile and super cute!  Fit is TTS.  I am wearing my normal size 16.  The skirt is fully lined. I received SO many compliments on this look.  I think that a vibrant floral print pencil skirt is a wardrobe must.  And, J. Crew makes the BEST pencil skirts in my opinion.  I reach for my J. Crew pencil skirts over and over again because they are classics!

Friday Faves!

Hi Everyone!

Happy Friday!  Today, I am sharing my Friday Faves!  My favorites this Friday include a mix of fun prints, sweaters, and gorgeous earrings! I love a fun pattern and the pattern on the following sweater is stunning.  I absolutely LOVE it.  I will share more of the outfit when I wear it this weekend, but I love this burgundy on burgundy look and I was totally inspired by the fabulous Blair/ Atlantic-Pacific who paired this sweater with multiple shades of burgundy. Here is one of my Friday Faves! I LOVEEEE this sweater.  I sized down from an XL to a Large.  Again, this beauty is just stunning.  In addition to being adorable, this sweater is SO cozy and warm. I highly recommend this beauty:

Again, I absolutely love the idea of pairing this gorgeous sweater with burgundy on burgundy.  And, the bag in this image is also one of my FAVES.  This bag is great quality and it is SO functional and versatile.  There is a smaller version of this bag that is equally adorable and functional.  The smaller version is also featured in a variety of colors and fabrics.

And, here are the rest of my Friday Faves!  I have included these fabulous sunglasses because they are so fun, unique, and cute!  I love how they complement the look featured above, as well as how they add just the right amount of pizzazz to a classic outfit.  And, these earrings are SOOO fun and vibrant!  They are the perfect shade of burgundy:

Those are my Friday Faves!  I would love to know what you’re loving these days!

OOTD: All J. Crew!

Hi Everyone!

Here is the outfit that I wore to church earlier today!  I am a huge fan of wearing sequins whenever and wherever.  I believe that we should always wear what we want (it should be a flattering outfit, of course!).  When I hear people say that they get funny looks for being “overdressed” or for not fitting in with the style of an event, I think, “oh well,” that is on the other people, not you!  In my opinion, we should never fit in or conform. I am totally okay with people looking at me like I am out of place if I am wearing an outfit that they would not wear.  At the end of the day, I refuse to let other people dictate what I wear!  I absolutely LOVED wearing this skirt today.  The skirt swishes as you walk and it is the cutest sound!  And, pink + navy is my favorite color combination.  I purchased this skirt in multiple colors because it is that good!  I am wearing my normal size 16 in the skirt; I highly recommend this beauty.  It is incredibly versatile, fun, and SO darn cute. I received SO many compliments on this look.

Again, I loved wearing this fun combination!  And, I loved pairing these super fun sunglasses for a bit of pattern mixing.  And, this tweed coat is seriously one of my FAVES!  The texture and the colors are SO adorable.  This coat is incredibly flattering and versatile.  I am typically a size 14 in coats depending on the cut, but I sized down to a 12 in this beauty.  I will be wearing another outfit this week with this coat that features a bold floral pant.  The tweed just pops against solid colors and florals SO well.  I highly recommend this coat.  And, it is offered in variety of solid colors, too!

This sweater is also one of my faves.  I love a gorgeous J. Crew fair isle sweaters and the one that I am wearing in this post will be on repeat throughout the holiday season!  J. Crew is currently offering SO many gorgeous fair isle sweater options! I love the versatility of these sweaters!
