Happy Friday everyone! I can’t believe it’s already the 22nd! The next week for me is going to be so busy but so full and I can’t wait to spend some quality time relaxing with all of my families! As I do every year, I’m going to take next week off from blogging. I love coming back refreshed in the New Year, and am looking forward to taking advantage of that time to reconnect with some of my favorite people. Make sure to follow along on Instagram, though!
This cozy sweater from Old Navy was a bit of an impulse buy for me, since I have been loving long cardigans so much these past few months. I grabbed it straight out of the shipping box on a late fall day for a drive to the ocean with B (seen in this Instagram), and that day I completely fell in love with it. I paired it with my Converse for some beach time, and lately I’ve been wearing it while working from home at least once per week. For Christmastide, I knew I would want to dress it up a bit, so I paired it with these fantastic leopard booties. I love how they make the outfit look intentional and put together, while I get to stay comfortable in this sweater!

Hey everyone, welcome back! Today I’m so excited to talk about holiday’s velvet trend! I have strong flashbacks to Christmas of 1997 when my cousins and I were all decked out in velvet dresses holding our American Girl Dolls, but it’s hard to deny the festive warmth that velvet holds! Old Navy has some amazing velvet pieces, from dressed to camisoles and even pants!
This first outfit is perfect for a casual way to embrace velvet. With a statement dress like this one, it’s easy to keep accessories to a minimum. I went with my classic gold jewelry and threw on my leopard heeled booties to create a more fun and quirky outfit.
The second outfit I decided to lean in to the shorter hemline and go for a longer and sleeker look by adding in my classic black mules. I love the faux wrap detail this red dress has, and you really can’t go wrong with red and velvet for the holidays!
Outfit One – Dress: Old Navy | Booties: Banana Republic
Outfit Two – Dress: Old Navy | Mules: Express
Thanks so much for stopping by! I hope you all have a great day!
Happy Monday, y’all. I hope your week is off to a good start. Today I wanted to share a few snaps of the look I wore ice skating this weekend. Bae and I tend to spend our fairer weather weekends visiting New England cities, but this winter we’ve done a pretty good job so far at not allowing the inclement weather to deter us from spending time in our favorite Boston neighborhoods as well.
While there are some more well known and mainstream rinks in the area, we opted to go to the Kendall Square rink for a little winter fun. I always check groupon for great deals on ice skating and they always come through, whether it’s Kendall Square or Frog Pond!
Hope you all have a great week! Thanks for reading!
You may recognize this jacket as being eerily similar to one I’ve worn here and here. Well, I have to admit, this coat is that old favorite’s younger sister. I bought the navy one two years ago from Old Navy and I love it to death. When I spotted this black one they came out with this year, I knew I needed to add it into my collection as well. I love how the coat, toggles, and loops are all black; making a really sleek look. The aforementioned navy coat has wooden toggles and rope details, making for a more nautical look. You can see why I needed both of them, especially at such a reasonable price point!

Ponchos and capes are my favorite weekend apparel. They’re comfy for lounging on a couch watching some football, but equally as stylish for running around doing some errands. My favorite accessory to glam up a casual weekend look is a felt fedora like this one, to add an extra element of fashion to the outfit.

The amazing pinstripe pants strike again. These so happen to combine three of my favorite pant traits into one amazing pair (high waisted, ankle, and colored), so this definitely won’t be the last time you’ll be seeing them around this corner of the interweb. While Mother Nature has certainly been flirting with warmth lately, we still have some cool days among us, not to mention chilly nights that are not at all spring like, so I just layered on this Old Navy blazer I’m certifiably obsessed with. I love how tall the combination of the vertical stripes and the long blazer makes me seem (though I guess heels that push me over six feet don’t hurt either…)
