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.

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