Review: Hush Puppies Velvet Bow Flats for Under $40


Vintage scarf (similar), Tibi blouse (reviewed here), BDG jeans (reviewed here), Hush Puppies flats via DSW

In my world this is what a holiday outfit for the month of December entails. If I could wear some formula of fun bow flats, basic black (with a twist!) and a chunky scarf i’d be a happy camper. I went a bit rogue and decided to pair skinny jeans with flats without pegging them. Admittedly it felt a bit uncomfortable, but i’m all about breaking out of my shell as the new year approaches.


I also plaid around with a new curling iron borrowed from my blogging best, Luci, and love the loose definition it gives my hair.



These bow flats were a steal at my local DSW for a mere $40! They are perhaps the most adorable shoes I own. I recommend you run to DSW to grab them.



And a little snuggle for your Tuesday!

Review: Gap Flannel


Gap flannel (same shirt, different color) (40% off!), BDG jeans (on sale for $39), Banana Republic tank (40% off), Steve Madden boots (on sale for $129)

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


Piperlime sweater, J.Crew skirt (reviewed here), SPANX tights, Steve Madden boots on sale! (a great wide-calf option), Target clutch, Sole Society + Kendra Scott (similar) necklaces

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.

Review: Vince Wool Car Coat


Vince Wool Car Coat (on sale!) (wearing size L), Nordstrom white T-Shirt, JamesJeans jeans (linked in dark wash), Jack Purcell shoes

Last week during Nordstrom’s half-yearly sale I had one of the most major shopping scores of my young shopper career. This Vince car coat, which i’ve been eyeing for a while, was 40% off with the last one available in my size. I received the coat just a few days later and legitimately have not taken it off since. It is just so gorgeous (especially on a fuller figured girl, rather than the slim model) and I absolutely love it.


Truthfully, I don’t own any other item like this. It is the most draped, softly structured garment in my closet but I love it for precisely that reason. The way that the contrasting colors drape in the front, the length hitting right at my knees and freeing feel make it so much fun to wear.



The coat is wool and is a two-tone color with a light charcoal coating the outside, and a soft camel fully lining the interior. When the coat is turned up at the sleeves or blows in the wind, the gorgeous camel peeks through.


The snaps you see above technically work to drape the coat over and close on the opposite end, but I do not plan to wear it in this way at all. I love the blanket-like ability to wrap it, and even envision myself wearing it belted.


The bottom is a beautiful curved hem with slits on either side (much more flattering in my opinion than up the back). The coat also falls fully to my knees in the front and the back, eliminating any unflattering cut across my widest part.


I absolutely could not ask for a more fun yet timeless addition to my closet.
