Guys, everything in this post is on sale. #ILoveCyberMonday. I wanted to do a quick review of an item that is definitely new to me: the flannel shirt. My best girlfriend was in town and her style couldn’t be more different than mine, but she pulled out this blue flannel shirt from Gap and I was intrigued. I kind of love the semi-grunge look and adore how these flannel shirts (from the men’s department) look unbuttoned with a basic outfit. I chose to pair this gorgeous cobalt one with all black jeans, tank and boots and dress it up with lipstick and a gorgeous necklace given to me as a gift.

The look of this shirt is definitely more casual but I think it will be so much fun paired with colored skinnies through the winter.

If you follow me on Instagram you saw this necklace. My girlfriend gave this to me for Hanukkah. It is a repurposed vintage Chanel button, set in a cold plate and put on a gold chain. She picked it up in an antique shop in Paris and I couldn’t love it more. Chanel jewelry for less!

J.Crew Fluted Skirt, Re-Styled and Steve Madden Intyce Boots

The last time I styled this skirt I was bare legged and definitely a little fancier. True to my comfort-loving self, i’m obsessed with this skirt even more when paired with a slouchy oversized sweater (tucked in for some definition) and slouchy boots.

Doin’ a little jig for ya, naturally. Thanks to Kate for capturing this fine moment

Mixing patterns and textures, always. I’m working on an outfit that mixes 4 patterns. An idea after a challenge from a reader. Challenge accepted.

I also wanted to talk about these boots briefly. After complaining about not finding a high-heeled wide leg option, I did want to mention how much I love these slouchy Steve Madden stunners. I’ve had them for years and I love the oversized fit around my ankle. It adds a bit of texture and proportion to any outfit. Would definitely recommend for someone looking for a lower heel/wedge option!

Can you believe Thanksgiving is tomorrow? I’ll be cozying up with some of my closest girlfriends for our first Friendsgiving/Thanksgiving and I couldn’t be happier. I’m so thankful to have each and every one of you. Truly, thank you for visiting.

Helmut Lang Puffer Coat and SPANX Tight-End Tights

IMG_7202Helmut Lang jacket – 50% off in black (borrowed from Jennifer), vintage dress (last styled here), SPANX tights, Kelsi Dagger shoes (love these in black), vintage Yigal Azrouel belt

Last weekend a bunch of blogging bests and I got together for some food and picture taking at my apartment. Arguably one of the greatest days, what made the day also so much fun was seeing what these other stylish ladies were wearing. Jennifer busted out this gorgeous Helmut Lang puffer coat and I was immediately obsessed. Luckily we are almost the same size so I was able to borrow it for a few hours that day, and now have decided I need it in my life. P.S. i’m in luck, it’s on sale for over 50% off in black multi-color here.

I love the contrast of the edgy puffer coat with this very vintage floral dress. I am always a fan of mixing textures and look/feel and added to the “winter wonderland” style by sporting these grey shearling booties.

My SPANX tight-end tights are always on my legs these days, and helped to complete this outfit. Although, i’m now thinking I need a navy pair of tights for outfits just like this. I can’t recommend SPANX for tights/leggings enough. I have traditional semi-opaque pairs like the one shown here and quite a few pairs of their “leggings” which feel more like a thicker tight for colder days. Seriously a favorite.

Look at that high-low cut at the back of that jacket! So flattering.

For more styling of this gem, see it today on Jennifer as well! Also, thank you so much for your wide-calf boot recommendations on this post. I am checking out all of the companies mentioned and love the possibilities!

Layering Floral in Old Navy Ponte Dress

Madewell top (same cut in Winter colors), Old Navy dress (full review here), H&M necklace (old), SPANX tights, Kurt Geiger shoes (borrowed from Jennifer)

This dress makes me feel so great that I just had to find a way to layer it into Fall.  A cherry blouse and black tights took care of the top portion, and with these amazing shoes borrowed from a blogger bud, it’s a happy, cheery yet warm(er) way to wear this favorite.

For those that didn’t catch the last full review of this dress, it is the cheapest, most amazing piece. At nearly $25 from Old Navy, it has served me amazingly from Summer into Fall and I envision layering it under chunky knits and coats into Winter.
