Plaid and jean are constantly being worn over and over but this time I paired the two together. I have had my eye on the plaid I am wearing for a long time! I love that this plaid has a bunch of different colors in it and is a bit more original than most plaids AND that it has only one pocket and not two pockets. I hateeeee two pocket button down shirts on myself because I feel like it accentuates my boobs which is always the last thing I am trying to do! I call them boob pockets in fact haha
Blanket scarves are probably one of my favorite inventions, at least at the moment! They are so comfy AND stylish and there is honestly nothing better. It is finally getting cold in LA and I tend to always be cold anyway so this is perfect for me to bundle up in. Restaurants and movie theaters are the best for bringing blanket scarves to! I kept this outfit very minimal keeping it all black and white.
This weekend I went to MacArthur Park where they have candy-colored spheres in the lake. This was such a cool thing to see in an area that needs some major revitalizing. The artists put these colorful spheres in this park just for that reason. They wanted to show the people of Los Angeles that this park has a lot more to offer and many residents have been over looking its beauty. After seeing these spheres of hope it was clear that slowly MacArthur Park will come back to life with this art in the water.I decided to wear PLAID of course! My favorite pattern ever! I went here with my sisters and it was so much fun!
The LACMA lights took my breath away for sure. I have driven past them a bunch of times but I have finally had the chance to go out and walk through them! They are so cool but to be honest I thought they would be taller!
So I am sure you all are learning very quickly that I am OBSESSED with plaid since so many of my outfit posts incorporate plaid into them. I have had my love affair with plaid ever since I can remember (pretty sure my first bikini from Limited Too was plaid)! So when I saw these plaid pants I just had to get them!
As we shift into winter I thought I would post just one last fall outfit post! This outfit could also be worn in the winter however. Just add a hat and gloves and you are set. P.S. check out the beautiful trees behind me!!
I have been wanting a Barbour jacket for quite some time! I finally splurged and got one and I am completely obsessed!! I love that the sleeves and the inside of the coat are plaid! As you all know from reading my previous posts I am obsessed with plaid! It is so fun and adds major flavor to any outfit. The Steve Madden boots are my go-to brown tall boot for the fall and winter season! I absolutely love them. They are very comfortable and extremely affordable. This Faux fur infinity scarf I am wearing is so incredibly soft. My neck was so warm the whole entire day I was wearing this. I love it so much I also got one in black!!
I hope everyone is enjoying the change from fall to winter! I am escaping out of the cold for a bit to go on vacation with my family! If any of you are heading somewhere tropical for vacation too be sure to let me know!
These last few days have been so exciting and emotional! I have officially graduated from college (so exciting) but unfortunately I have had to say goodbye to so many good friends. To all my beautiful friends out there, it wasn’t good bye it was see you soon <3
I thought putting this outfit together was perfect because now that I am a graduate I have to start dressing business casual for interviews and future jobs! This would be a perfect business casual look while still being able to show your full personality! Let’s get to the outfit details! And of course, there is plaid, because well, I am just MAD for PLAID!!
I have to start by saying that I was SO thankful for my sister letting me borrow her awesome new Kate Spade Sunglasses! They were a lifesaver. For some reason I could not keep my eyes open for the life of me (it was tragic) so I slipped these diva Kate Spade Sunglasses on and I was set! I am completely jealous of these sunglasses and want some for myself! I love how big the frames are on them and how fun they are to wear!
Of course my skirt is plaid, which I love! Not only is this skirt plaid but it is also scalloped at the bottom making it the best of both worlds! This skirt is from ASOS and I would highly suggest it. Pairing a white ruffle cami with this skirt and a nice blazer like I did hear makes for a very fun yet sophisticated look.
Let’s talk tights!! I have received few questions about what outfits to wear tights with and where I get my tights so I am going to discuss those questions! The tights I am wearing are from J.Crew and whenever I want some new tights I always go to J.Crew to get them! The tights that J.Crew sells are really great quality and they last for a really long time. I love wearing a thicker tight (like a sweater tight) as well, it just depends on what type of outfit I am pairing with the tights! Most tights are footed which is nice because if you are pairing tights with an outfit it is so you can stay warm while still wearing versatile outfits in the wintery months and staying chic. So don’t be scared to try some tights with an outfit because it could make all the difference!
I am a complete Gossip Girl fanatic (hopefully some of you are too??), and I have to say I LOVE Blair Waldorf so whenever I can I try to channel her and I think this outfit did a pretty good job at channeling my inner Blair Waldorf! If you have a Gossip Girl inspired outfit be sure to comment and show me!
Fall is such a lovely time of the year! From just getting back from Iowa this North Carolina weather is just what I needed! It feels like a perfect fall/spring day out! I am not even wearing a jacket today!
Brandy Melville Milan Top// Nine West Illusion Lace-Up Wedge Booties// J.Crew Cashmere Scarf in Plaid// David Yurman ‘Crossover” Bracelet// Marc by Marc Jacobs Watch// Mini Tory Burch Nylon Tote// Joe’s Jeans
I absolutely love the booties I am wearing! I have been wanting a pair of lace up booties since last fall and I finally found the best pair! They are not only super cute but also super affordable! What could be better than those two combinations?!!? They are by Nine West so of course they are veryyyy comfortable! I am wearing the brown ones!
Brandy Melville will forever be my favorite spot to get the most comfortable t-shirts. These shirts are so soft you will never want to get out of them! After trying one on I had to buy this top in all the colors it came in! Definitely my go to shirt!
This scarf is so warm and cozy!! It is also so big that I can use it like a blanket which is great because I get cold so easily! Unfortunately the color scheme of the one I am wearing is sold out but all of the other options are just as great! Also it is PLAID, which by the way I am OBSESSED with anything and everything plaid!
Who else is absolutely loving this beautiful sunny fall day?! I know I am and I have to soak up all the Carolina love as possible since I am leaving in just 7 short days!
MMMMM who is soooo full they can’t move?!? I know I am! Thanksgiving is one of my favorite holidays; mainly because it is surrounded by delicious food and of course all of my loving family!
Here is my Thanksgiving look!
J.Crew Tights// Steve Madden ‘Whysper’ Nubuck Bootie in Black// Topshop floppy wool felt hat// Betsy Johnson Coat// Free People Plaid Skirt// Small Gold Ring –‘Marina’ Midi Ring// Marc by Marc Jacobs Watch// Trouve Top// David Yurman ‘Crossover” Bracelet// David Yurman ‘Cable Classics’ Ring
I have to say, I have been looking for some cute black booties for a while and these Steve Madden one’s are just what I was looking for! Not only are they super cute but also extremely comfortable. If those two things aren’t enough these booties are also under $100!! What could be better?!? I mean seriously? They are my perfect fall bootie!
The hat I am wearing I am currently obsessed with! I want to put it with every outfit possible! Hat’s make every outfit look just that much better!! The Betsy Johnson Coat is my FAVORITE trench coat. This coat is so fun because it is not a traditional trench coat. This coat flairs out at the bottom and has just the cutest flower buttons! It is just darling! And of course this Free People Plaid Skirt I am just swooning over!! It is so chic and fun, perfect for the holidays (and it has pockets, which makes me love it even more)!
For Thanksgiving I am home in Iowa and it is FREEZING. It is currently 3 degree’s out so I am inside by the fire drinking some hot chocolate! Here are some pictures of the food my family made for Thanksgiving! My special dish I make each year is the Sweet Potato casserole (obviously the best dish of the night)!
Phew! I am in a complete food coma, so I must go watch a movie now! I hope you guys enjoy this post!
What is everyone’s favorite Thanksgiving dish?!? Be sure to comment and let me know!
