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!

Holiday Office Party: Kenneth Cole Jersey Dress


Kenneth Cole dress (old, more options below), Assorted vintage necklaces, Sam Edelman sandals

My office has a company holiday party in a few weeks and because i’m obsessive, i’ve been thinking about what dress I want to wear for quite some time. I’ve ordered and returned a few dresses (including the striped one from this post, a dud), and have been styling old options to try and pull something from my closet. This Kenneth Cole sheath dress has made it’s debut many times at office parties and more formal events, and is a decent option for our party.


Accessorizing it has always been a challenge. This time around I opted for layered necklaces and enjoyed the look.


If I were to wear this dress to my holiday party, I would have to slip on some SPANX just to create clean lines in the rear-end area.



A bold lip and big curls and this dress goes from basic to pretty darn glamorous if I do say so myself.



And a little pose to brighten your hump day!

As this dress is ancient, here are a few more navy jersey sheath dresses i’m loving. Stay tuned tomorrow for more dresses i’m considering ordering for this party.

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.
