stripes.

sweater: joe fresh. skirt: (similar). booties: steve madden (similar). fur: votre nom. bag: thanks to tre vero. sunglasses: ray-ban

i love a chunky sweater especially on a dreary, cold day. i paired it with a fitted skirt to off-set the chunkiness of the top. i added the red bag for a touch of color to the neutral outfit. 

happy monday! three busy days and i'm off to ohio to hang out with my family for christmas!

black.

 dress: gap (similar). jacket: votre nom (similar). shoes: steve madden. snake bracelet, link bracelet, necklace: thanks to stella & dot. hat: street vendor (similar). gloves: american apparel. sunglasses: ray-ban

black has always been one of my favorite colors (if you can call it a color). it's just so easy, simple and classic. i added edgy accessories to the dress like the sunglasses, a hat, wedge sneakers and gloves and then added layered jewelry for a feminine touch. 

happy friday ... cheers to a fun, festive weekend!

tuxedo shirt.


 top: vintage (similar). jacket: asos (similar). jeans: the limited (similar). shoes: vince camuto (similar). 

i love the simplicity of this outfit. this vintage tuxedo shirt was a great snag at a store in LA. i'm really into jeans and button-ups lately as an easy, comfortable outfit that you can dress up (big earrings or a chunky necklace layered over the shirt and heels) or down (simple stud earrings and booties).

happy hump day!

red.

top: H&M. denim vest: j.crew. red vest: american apparel (similar). pants: j.crew. shoes: nine west (similar). scarf: street vendor (similar-ish). hat: street vendor (similar). bag: j.crew.

i love the pop of this vibrant red color and i'm usually not into much color. pattern mixing with stripes and plaid is fun and i'm a sucker for tartan plaid, especially around the holidays. this hat (stolen, i mean borrowed, from the bf) might be a staple for me this winter (it's a great solve for a bad hair day or for hiding dark roots in bewteen hair appointments) ...

happy weekend!

sequin.

top: j.crew. blazer: banana republic (similar). vest: eddie bauer (similar). skirt: abercrombie. shoes: bakers. clutch: american apparel

i love that this sequin top is subtle (not super shiny sequins), it makes it more versatile. i paired it with with a camo skirt to toughen it up a bit then threw on a black blazer and my leopard scarf (that i use as a neutral). by pairing sequins with more casual pieces, you can make it more wearable for day. 

happy hump day!
