Joules Puffer Vest


Joules vest c/o, J.Crew sweater (similar), James Jeans c/o, Jack Purcell sneakers, Prada sunglasses

This weekend was a pretty relaxed one for Cesar and I. We hung around the city, did a few errands and generally laid pretty low as the rest of our friends were off for the holiday. Not being ones to celebrate a ton this time of year, we are opting to escape to Tahoe together for a few days. Skiing, hot chocolate and good food are what’s on the menu for this week. Stay tuned for some gorgeous ski pictures coming your way soon!




In other news, this gorgeous Joules puffer vest will surely be coming with me to Tahoe. It is incredibly warm and not too bulky, and I love the canary yellow color and pop of stripes within. Plus, it has a detachable hood! I’m such a sucker for great details. In fact, all of their vests rock.



Regular posting schedule will be back Thursday. Until then, on behalf of Cesar and I, we wish you a healthy, happy, and joy-filled Christmas season!

This post was sponsored by Joules. Thank you so much for supporting the brands that support my shopping addiction.

Holiday Party Couple


Wednesday evening Cesar and I attended a company holiday party. He looked so cute in his little suit that I had to share these pictures. I wore almost the exact outfit from this post and got my hair blown out at Blo Bar just before the event. Honestly, i’ve rediscovered the beauty that are blow outs, look at that volume! Cesar and I are laying low for the weekend and heading to Tahoe for Christmas time so there will be plenty of snow-covered pictures to come.

Have a safe and happy holiday weekend!

Banana Republic Turtleneck


Banana Republic turtleneck, Cache dress worn as skirt (super old, similar), SPANX tights, Steve Madden boots, Borrowed clutch, Club Monaco belt

I ordered this BR turtleneck after ordering the J.Crew version and being disappointed by its itchiness. This turtleneck is the most amazing quality, thick and comfortable, with absolutely no itching. The neck is more of a cowl than a true turtleneck which I actually appreciate (less choking feeling) and has ribbing along the bottom and sleeves, which adds great dimension.



I am absolutely in love with this yellow color I scored and adore how it pairs with gold jewelry. This beaded clutch was borrowed from my good friend Kate and I adore it. She scored it on Poshmark for only a few bucks!



Finally, for sizing reference, i’m wearing a M here and the fit is great. Happy Thursday friends!

ASOS Grandpa Cardigan


ASOS Grandpa Cardigan (more options below), J.Crew Pixie pants, Steve Madden boots, Kenneth Cole bag (amazing option)

I snagged this grandpa bow cardigan on ASOS during Black Friday, and it was a total departure for me. I like to use huge sale days to scoop things up I wouldn’t ordinarily purchase. Maybe I consider the discount an excuse to experiment with more items? Regardless of the reasoning, this sweater is basically what i’ve always preached against as a pearshaped woman. It covers my tush and is shapeless: two no-no’s in my book. However, and this is a big however, the smaller details of this cardigan that make it flattering and unique are what drew me in.



I love that the cardigan is a unique color and print. I’ve been trying to incorporate more new printed pieces into my wardrobe and comfy sweaters are the easiest way to do that. The grandpa style is also a unique shape for me and i’ve found so many unique ways to wear it: layered over flippy skirts, over leggings as shown here or black jeans for work.


The pattern has also allowed me to experiment with pattern mixing (a well documented obsession), and I love how the baby blue acts as a pseudo neutral when paired with an all-black ensemble. The leopard and black of this Kenneth Cole bag pair so beautifully with the subtle blue.


Finally, the length of the cardigan is what truly sold me. It hits about 1-2 inches below my tush, not fully cutting me off at my widest point. It also allows for enough length to be belted with tights or leggings.

Here are a few other oversized cardigans i’m loving for this season if baby blue and bows don’t tickle your fancy:
