Ciao e arrivederci!! In T-minus 24 hours I’ll be on my way to ITALY!! I can taste the vino and pasta now.
Pink, particularly blush, is one of my favorite colors for spring. Blush is soft, delicate and romantic while burgundy adds more of a sophisticated contrast against the soft blush tone (you can see a recent post with a similar color palette here). My fringe denim, jacket and pumps are all under $100 and I’ve linked all outfit details below!
Where in the world is Carmen Sandiego? Lol seriously! I feel like I’m totally incognito all wrapped up in my long oblong scarf, shades and floppy hat. All jokes aside, I put this look together with pieces I already owned and it’s great for transitioning into the warmer days while it’s still cold enough for long sleeves and boots (here in Chicago at least). Since spring is typically associated with soft shades of pastel, floral print and lighter fabrics, I do think the tan with burgundy is ideal for fall so I’ll definitely be recycling this look again in 6 months.
Happy Monday! I hope you’ve all had a great weekend. Mine was pretty busy, but very productive. I spent some time with the family, went out with some friends, did a blog photo shoot and I even made it to the gym (I haven’t worked in weeks) so my legs are really sore and I’m having a hard time moving around today.
I’ve been wanting to share this OTS sweater with you all for a while now; it’s one of my favorites from a couple of months ago. This exact sweater in red is almost completely sold out, but it comes in 4 other colors. The pink one is super cute for spring and if it stays chilly a bit longer, you can def. still wear it. I’m ready to transition into light weight tops and jackets though so I’m hoping to start putting away my winter clothes for the season by the end of this week.
Happy first of the month! We’re that much closer to spring (19 more days), but who’s counting, right?
I wanted to share a simple yet classic look with all of you that will never go out of style and one that you can probably already put together with the items in your closet. If you don’t already own one, definitely invest in a camel colored wool coat which is a great alternative to your standard black coat (another staple you should own). I bought mine (here) on sale at Macy’s a couple of years ago, but I’ve been meaning to get a new one because the camel color is a little off and has more of a taupe tint to it. I’ve come across a couple of wrap coats in camel such as this one that I’m hoping I can still purchase while on sale before next year.
My Burberry check scarf was a recent Christmas gift. I’ve been wanting the classic camel print for a while now (I have it in ivory as well), but you certainly don’t need to spend that much for any everyday scarf. It’s a personal preference. There are some pieces I prefer to splurge on (or ask for as Christmas gifts), including handbags and coats, that I know will never go out of style. My brown double o-ring belt is from Express and under $40. I have it in black too. It’s simple yet stylish and a great dupe of the Gucci logo belt. My brown suede booties are from Nine West and I bought them for under $40 during Cyber Monday.
This is a great transitional outfit since you can swap out the booties for a pair of pumps and the wool coat for a trench coat in the warmer months. I’ve linked several options below.
