White Vest

White Vest: Old (but similar style on sale at ASOS) – Gray Sweater: Banana Republic – Shoes: ALDO  – Faux leather pants: h+m Clutch: Express Necklace: h+m 

       Vests are a must have for your closet because they can work for every season and also are great for layering. I like this minimalist style because in addition to wearing it in the winter, I’m also to style it for the spring and summer too. I tend to pair this vest with more neutral hues and skinny jeans to keep the color scheme muted and the silhouette sleek.

A Little Daytime Shimmer


Top: Urban Outfitters (similar style here ) – Purse: forever21 – Shoes: Eva & Zoe – Ring: h+m White button-up: h+m

     I normally steer clear of anything too sparkly, but I find that this top is so versatile. When paired with a white button down and some army green denim it turns into something a little less fancy and much more low key. I’ve also worn it with ripped denim, which also gives it a comfortable laid back feel.

    I actually wore this outfit to the Reba, Brooks & Dunn concert here in Vegas (a must-see) and got some compliments from strangers. In my book… friend compliments are amazing. Stranger compliments are next level! Ha!

Pants: h&m – Chambray Shirt: Banana Republic –  Scarf: Forever21 – Purse: Target – Boots: h&m 
Blazer: h&m – Watch: American Eagle – Earrings: forever21 – Broche: JCPenney

Broches are my jam lately. I love them pinned onto a blazer lapel to add a little something extra to your outfit. I saw this one in People Style Watch Magazine and fell in love (elephants are my favorite animal) My husband picked it up for me on Black Friday for $9! I’m obsessed.

Make your summer dress work for fall


Dress: Thrifted (similar here) Boots: Steve Madden via Off Broadway Shoes Faux Leather Jacket:h and m Sweater: Calvin Klein (thrifted, but similar here) Purse: Target (sold out online, but similar version here ) Rings: Gifted and thrifted

     Just because it’s getting colder doesn’t mean you need to ditch all your summer dresses. It’s actually really easy to make them work for fall and into winter too. My rule is add boots, socks, sweaters and jackets. In this case…. I added all the elements!
     I’ve been looking for turtleneck sweaters on all my usual websites, but I have a hard time spending a lot of money on something I know I’ll only get to wear a few months out of the year. I actually found this Calvin Klein sweater at Goodwill as I was looking for my Halloween costume. FIVE. BUCKS. I’m not even kidding. This turtleneck would be well over $80 if I bought it in a department store. 
     How are YOU winterizing your summer faves? Let me know!
