My Weekend Looks

Happy Cold Weather!

I felt super cute this weekend (except for Friday, but Friday is still a weekday… it doesn’t count), so I decided to share it with you all.

SATURDAY SHOPPING

Well Saturday I decided I would go down to “the city” and get some Christmas shopping done. When I wrote that, I felt like I was writing a Jane Austen novel, when the family decides to “go to town” which is like 10 miles away and all the girls buy ribbon. But in this town there’s a J.Crew!

I didn’t feel great Friday, so I thought I would go cozy and comfy with this boxy crop sweater from LOFT. When wearing a boxy sweater or top, pair it with something form fitting underneath to give yourself shape.  Unless you are a box… which is unlikely.

I thought pairing it with our Chunky Gold Chain necklace would be a great pairing, since the sweater is simple and has a high neckline. And of course, Kate Spade…. Kate Spade anything.

GAME NIGHT

What to wear to game night…. you want to be able to move around , sit on the floor, and look cute.  Cute and sweet, so no one will suspect your competitive spirit.

Why not go with a maxi dress?

Brown + teal = 😀

You just cant go wrong.  I also put a statement necklace under the scarf so I could take it off when I started to get more intense with the game playing.

I just love how my husband knows my love of twirling.  I mean really, who doesn’t?

FAMILY PICTURES

Well I wanted to wear something semi-festive, but not so much so that I couldn’t use the pictures for something else.  SO, hunter green dress, booties, and a statement necklace. OH and our cat… but thats a whole other story…

Ok yeah we brought our cat to family picture time at my husbands work… THEY SAID TO BRING PETS. So we brought Brutus in a bow tie.  Which ended up being me with a cat hair covered dress.

Transitioning to Winter

Well, we had a week between 90 degrees and 30 degrees.  It was a nice week.  I went outside, didn’t have to wear shorts, nor did I have to wear a coat.

I miss those days already….

I’m taking this white tee and jeans look from Fall to Winter.

Of course it all starts with an army jacket and a light weight scarf.  And just so you are aware, I am just wearing a white tee shirt, jeans, and booties, then changing everything else.  (Oh and the same purse – that won’t change until I start getting paid to do this, I’m not a professional people!)

To take it a step further, I add a fuzzy bomber jacket and a slightly heavier scarf.

This jacket is actually on sale now at Anthropologie! And it is SUPER soft and comfy. It also falls at a nice place on my waist, just enough crop to make it flattering.

Also, notice the front tuck? Yeah I’m J. Crewin’ it up. (at least trying…)

As you can see from my other posts, I can’t get enough of this scarf.  It literally goes with my entire wardrobe.

And now for the winter coat.

IMG_7920

Ok, I have to admit, I am a little excited to wear this one. I put it with a soft metallic sweater knit scarf – COZY.

OR you can just put it with your summer chiffon infinity scarf.  You won’t be as cozy, but you will look fabulous!

IMG_7912

Just think of your winter coat as an outerwear dress.  You want to accessorize it too!

Here is the jewelry I’m wearing underneath:

Just something simple.  It is always good to have a simple long necklace you can throw on with anything!

Sexy Shoes

Well I was online shopping with Christine, yes this is what happens when your friend moves away and you can no longer shop in person together, and we found these pretty amazing Sam Edelman heels.  Let’s remember that neither one of us really has an excuse to wear 4 inch fashionable heels, I live in Enid and she lives in a surf town.

ANYWAYS, they were too expensive, but I happened to be shopping in Nordstrom Rack 3 days later and my cousin saw them on the shoe rack there and I was in SHOCK. They were still full price online. So I got them for $40, and now have them in my house and need more opportunities to wear them. And this is how I did it!

Since they are higher than what I usually wear, I decided to wear a longer pencil skirt to make them look more conservative. However, I think these shoes would look silly with a traditional suit, so I put the skirt with a black cami, and a lace top.  To add a little sparkle I added the Clear Bead Statement Necklace, and of course brought a scarf with me just in case!
