J.Crew chambray shirt (favorite, obsessed), James Jeans black denim (here in similar black finish), Superga sneakers, Madewell belt

Just a casual day-off look with some of my favorite pieces. Classic chambray, the best black denim and classic white sneaks. Pulled together with an amazing belt and similarly-colored sunglasses.

This Black Friday there are a few sales i’m eyeing, looking to add some unique, fun pieces to my wardrobe and also shop for upcoming holiday parties. Here are a few things i’ve picked up (the black/white striped dress & black belt) or am stalking, and the sales i’m loving:

Shopbop – up to 25% off (lot’s of larger sizes available)

Saks Fifth Avenue – up to 60% off

Gap – 50% off everything (love for basics)

Banana Republic – 40% off everything (amazing for layering tanks, reviewed here)

I hope you had a wonderful Thanksgiving!

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

IMG_6766-2

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.

Wardrobe Essentials

IMG_2969-2

Old sweater (similar), J.Crew “perfect” shirt (here in solid), Banana Republic tank, JBrand jeans (on sale!), Jack Purcell shoes, Prada sunglasses

Pattern mixing, hello! Three patterns seems to be my thing. Let’s see if maybe one day we could go for four?

IMG_2973-2

Each component of this outfit are my favorites. The “perfect” tank from BR I have talked about before as being an essential. This shirt from J.Crew is a staple and this sweater is thrown over things for work more than i’d care to admit. And well, these sunnies, need I say more?

Also, I’m loving the 6th grade throwback with these Jack Purcell’s. Thinking of investing in some Keds just to really take it back.

Thanks for reading!
