Classic Winter Outfits

When I think of winter outfits, I envision being wrapped up in cozy cable knits, fair isle and lots of plaid. You can’t go wrong with any of these timeless prints during the holidays. And I’m always game for adding another lobster sweater to my collection. Is that not the cutest print you’ve ever laid eyes on?

Meet My New Best Booties

I’m usually so good about waiting to buy something until it’s on sale or I have a discount code. Well, I just couldn’t wait with these booties. You may remember them from this post a few weeks ago.

They are even comfy enough to wear on my 15 minute walk to the office. I usually wear them with jeans, but I also love how the rich brown color looks with my fatigue green jeans from J.Crew and a gray sweater.

P.S. The Nordstrom site says the booties run small and to order a half size up. I’m a size 9 and the nine’s fit me perfectly fine so you should be good with ordering your regular size.

The Perfect Puffer

A vest is my solution for those what do I wear when it’s 30 degrees in the morning and 50 degrees in the afternoon days. I loved the bright red color of this Gap one, so I waited until they had one of their 35% off codes (which is almost all the time) and pulled the trigger.

Paired with skinny jeans and my favorite cozy Toms booties, it’s a perfect outfit for a brisk fall day. I always find it refreshing to wear bright colors in fall and winter. My walk to the office everyday is filled with people wearing navy and black, so I like that I can add a little pop of color to the concrete jungle!

Holiday Party Shoes

The Kate Spade holiday gift guide came out on Friday, and after spotting these heels with a gorgeous satin bow I’ve been dreaming about a perfect pair of party shoes. I think the price of those Kate Spade ones may be a little steep for Santa. Thankfully there are more affordable options out there. Which ones are your favorite?

Starting my Holiday Wish List

Happy November! Is it too early to start my Christmas list? With less than 2 months to go, it seems to grow longer by the day.

Here are a few things I’m wishing for this year…

A reindeer sweater to make winter less gloomy, a colorblocked peacoat that’s cozy and roomy. A gorgeous totebag, handcrafted in leather and an eye-catching, chevron printed, lambswool sweater. And don’t forget a pair of shoes, because those always chase away the winter blues.

Military Skirt

This H&M skirt is one of the oldest pieces in my closet, and I don’t plan on retiring it anytime soon. I bought it right after graduating high school to wear to a summer internship. I didn’t have much office wear at the time and was just started to build a professional wardrobe.

Military detailing never seems to go out of style, so this skirt has given me years of use. In the summer I pair it with a striped tee and sandals, but I’ve been playing around with different ways to wear it for fall. A simple long sleeve black tee and my favorite pair of studded heels is a look I’m loving right now with this skirt.

Simple Cable Knit Sweaters

It’s sweater season! Well, it’s always sweater season for me. I just wear lightweight sweaters in the spring and summer.

Fall and winter are when I bring out the big guns. The thick, chunky cable knit sweaters. Just having one of these cozy sweaters on makes me want to curl up and take a nap. Not exactly good for work, but good for warmth.

I get a lot of compliments on the bright red color of my J.Crew cable knit turtleneck (shown above). It’s so vibrant in person. I bought mine on sale at the end of the season last year, but J.Crew had 25% new arrivals right now.

Gap, Zara, Boden and Aritzia and also make affordable and timeless cable knits that you’ll wear all season long.
