ONE TURTLENECK TWO WAYS

Turtleneck Two Ways

     Turtlenecks are my JAM as of late. Especially the loosey goosey ones that don’t feel like hands strangling my neck (you know what I’m talking about). So forget everything you once thought you knew about turtlenecks and let’s begin… 
     First of all… you can wear them multiple ways: under dresses, tucked in skirts, under your favorite leather jacket, etc. For these two options I chose some items that I feel you may already have in your closet. 
     
FIRST LOOK: Pairing a gray turtleneck with distressed jeans and some sneaks is my ultimate winter weekend look (just check out this look if you think I’m lying). A red beanie and a leopard purse makes it feel more put together. Also, I’m very excited Adidas Originals (or shell-toes as I call them) are back. I owned three pairs in high school and I’m pinching myself for not taking better care of them!

SECOND LOOK: Depending on how the sweater fits you, I would either tuck it completely into the skirt or do a “half-tuck” for more polish. I love how the wine colored purse and emerald booties compliment each other and give your otherwise neutral outfit some color. I debated throwing on a grandma-chic broche instead of the silver statement necklace (as seen here) – but really either would look great. 

     Hope that helps! Happy styling!

Mad About Plaid

Mad About Plaid

     I’ve got a few plaid flannel shirts that I put on a heavy rotation, but incorporating the print into other pieces is so much more exciting! For the first look I paired a plaid print dress with a white turtleneck to make it more winter-ready. Don’t forget the OTK boots! 
     The second look is more casual, but still chic. Also, those Oxford shoes remind me of when I was little. The leather jacket gives the outfit a little edge too.
     For the final look, I chose a Victorian blouse underneath a plaid skirt with a lace hem. This is actually something I would wear for Christmas. So, I paired it with that adorable Kate Spade “present purse”. Go festive or go home, right?!

Sunday Sneaks

 Jean Jacket: American Eagle Outfitters (on sale now!) – Sweater: Thrifted – Sunglasses – Rayban – Jeans: h+m 
Purse: Sam and Libby (similar style here) – Shoes: Nike

     After a week in heels, sometimes your feet just need a break. I recently got these Nike sneaks and they’ve quickly become my weekend go-to. They’re also very light, which is an added perk. I’d also pair them with leather pants, a mid-calf coat and a cozy sweater.

Enjoy your Sunday everyone!

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!
