So Preppy

Hey guys!

Happy 11.11!

Button-down + sweater + statement necklace, it can't get any more basic than that. I'm a sucker for easy layering, and this preppy combination is boundless. It is pretty much what I wear every other day in autumn and winter; essentially my uniform.

Now I'm on the lookout for some sweaters to wear over my button-downs, specifically fun patterns. My sweater collection consists of predominantly solid colors and simple cable knits. I've linked up a few of my favorite sweater options below...

Monochromatic Baroque

Hello friends!

This weekend I pulled out my beloved baroque pants from storage and I couldn't help but wear them immediately! I may have gone a little overboard in the texture mixing, but keeping the color palette monochromatic helped the outfit look composed. 

This outfit seems perfect for a holiday party; the gold and cream tones are so festive! I know I'll be wearing it again in the near future.

Fri-yay!

Hey y'all!

The weather is cooling down, the first week of November is over, my local mall has it's large Christmas tree on display, and gift guides are popping up on every other blog. This can only mean that its officially the holiday season. I'm the ultimate procrastinator, so I thought I would get a head start and brain storm gift ideas for the holidays. Here is my first gift guide of the season and all the items are less than $50!




This is probably the extent of my pre-planning; I will most likely(definitely) be rushing with last minute shopping the week before Christmas. 

Have a great Fri-YAY!
Thanks for stopping by!

Plaid and Polka Dots

Hello hello!

Happy Wednesday! 

I've always been a fan of pattern combining. Many opposite patterns attract and complement each other. Take this navy polka dot shirt and navy plaid scarf; the circles and squares are so different, but the geometric shapes work well together. The navy on navy on navy also help tie everything together. In all honesty, I did not wear these shoes for most of the day...I wore simple red flats, but switched out for these pictures. :P

Black and Coral

Hello friends!

This past weekend/week was actually quite chilly, so I must disclose that these pictures are a few days old. I had a few meetings to attend, hence the office appropriate attire. When I do have to dress more formally, I always choose to wear pencil skirts, flowy tops, and a sensible heel. So generic but so easy! My ultimate objective, an outfit that is effortless but still composed.

Magenta

Hello all!

I'm sure you can guess from this outfit that fall has disappeared. We are experiencing temperatures near the record highs(mid 80s) and I am struggling with finding what to wear. I thought a one shoulder dress in this regal magenta color would simultaneously keep me cool and fall festive. I stuck with brown accents throughout because I like being matchy matchy and I wanted to wear my new boots! Note: my feet were burning up in this sock/riding boot combination, regrets.
