I'm trying something new today. I often sneak peak and share many of my fashion favorites on Instagram. Well...today I'm sharing my must-have winter accessories to break up the doldrums.
How do you beat the winter blahs? Click below to access any of my Insta images and you'll receive direct links to the items or similar ones at best.
Let me know what you guys think and if this is helpful! Cheers, we made it through Monday!
The black and white phase continues. It's just SO easy to get dressed. I know you all discovered this before me so please forgive. This was yesterday's shoot outfit for a day of schlepping without sacrificing chic.
In a cozy state of mind this morning. How about you? This is sweater weather folks...keep the cups of piping hot coffee coming! I've started putting together Christmas lists and hiding gifts. Full speed ahead but while you're here...let me share a few items that I am coveting heavily.
Husband - are you reading this? Take note!
This is a Friday dress. No muss, no fuss. And velvet is right on trend at the moment. Who knew?
No, I actually totally knew and have been hesitant to jump back onto the velvet train, however, when I saw this dress - it was a non-starter.
Attending a college football game 17 years after the fact is a completely different experience. Dare I say - I felt old but I was really glad to be through all the trials and tribulations of my 20's.
My husband and I attended the Iowa/Northwestern game with friends this past weekend and I joked that this was my tailgating attire. It may not have been school gear but I did represent in t-shirt colors!
There's something about a crisp, cold morning that I really love. I think it makes coffee taste that much better. Just a theory I have. By noon, the sun has burned off and what you get is the perfect Fall day that does not necessitate a jacket. My favorite!
I am mourning the loss of another weekend. I feel like October is flying by so quickly. It's insane. From here on out we are going to try and cram as much pumpkin into our schedule as possible. I will admit...the weather has been hovering at this perfect 70ish mark which makes outfit prepping kinda fun still. Not quite in layers but chilly at night.
One of my top five favorite things about Fall has got to be the ability to wear denim cutoffs with long sleeved tops. I couldn't tell you why that is but it's a thing and it's a small fleeting moment before our legs completely freeze over here in Chicago.
What could be better than a dress made out of sweatshirt material? Don't answer that! I realize this trend might not be for everyone but shoot guys, I was ultra comfortable running around the city in this little diddy. Fashion tip: You have to belt this dress or it will look like a giant potato sack which is no bueno. I linked a few inexpensive options below but you can find a wide belt just about anywhere these days. Belting everything is SO of the moment again.
I write this post as I browse pink sneakers online. I have no idea how I end up in these rabbit holes. I look at today's outfit post and I do admire a good heel but I dare say...I think I am becoming a sneaker head! Heels offer such a beautiful silhouette but there are so manyyyyyy sneaker options. Is that the mom in me coming out? I think so.
I've been craving a good pair of flattering cargos for what seems like an eternity. And I finally found them at Evereve. I have NEVER shopped there but was pleasantly surprised. This pair is from Blank which I happen to love and have several of their styles in my closet. They fit well, forgive in the right places and are not at all baggy or unflattering like in the old days! Even cuter with heels for a night out on the town!
