Color Me Crazy

I’m all about neutrals, but I can’t resist a colorful blouse that you can style multiple ways. I chose to pair this blouse with a navy skirt, rather than black, for something a little different. Adding multiple colored accessories brings out the various colors in the blouse without being over-the-top or detracting from the look. Sometimes you just need a little color to brighten up your day 😉

I apologize for the silence the past couple of days, there just aren’t enough hours in the day sometimes! Decided to pull out this oldie, but goodie last week for work, and I’m so glad I did. I purchased this dress a few years ago from Forever 21, and I forgot how much I love it. Watercolor and ruffles never get old! This dress is classy enough for a special event, but also appropriate for a Monday meeting. I always keep my eye out in Forever 21 for similar styles that I can use for work and play.

This adorable jersey bow dress from H&M can easily be dressed up or down. I chose to go with a more casual vibe for today’s look. The leather jacket and scarf give the dress a little edge, and adding teal to the color palette gives the look an unexpected flare. Stay tuned for a more feminine take on this gorgeous dress in a future post!

I hope everyone had a wonderful weekend. I’m featuring a relaxed look that I sported this weekend on this dreary Monday morning. The majority of items from this look were Christmas gifts, and I think it’s safe to say that my family knows my style very well! An oversized wool blazer, boyfriend jeans, a warm scarf, and comfy flats are the perfect pieces for a casual chic outfit. How adorable are these social media loafers?! They add a playful flare to the look, and are super comfy! You will definitely be seeing each of these items on the blog multiple times this season.

Happy Anniversary to my sweet husband! Can’t believe we started dating 5 years ago today and have been married a little over six months now 🙂

My parents told the family to get ready for dinner in Market Square last night, little did we know they had tickets for The Moscow Ballet’s production of The Nutcracker. The Nutcracker is one of my favorite ballets, so I was thrilled when we ended up at the Tennessee Theatre. Luckily, I was wearing a dress and heels! The ballet was wonderful and brought me right back to my dancing days. I sure do miss it, but I’ll always be a dancer at heart.

This hooded cardigan from Topshop is one of the coziest sweaters I own. I love to travel in it because it’s warm enough to wear as a coat, but much lighter. It’s so easy to toss in your bag if the weather suddenly changes. The past few outfits I’ve styled have had a pop of color, and I just couldn’t resist styling a bright red handbag with this neutral look.

Can you tell that I’m absolutely freezing in these pictures? Last week we had fairly warm weather here, so I didn’t bother to look at the temperatures before stepping out the door this weekend, which was a huge mistake. We went shopping in Market Square, and everyone was bundled up in their winter coats, gloves, and boots except for me. My feet were numb by the time I walked back to the car, but the French Macarons that I picked up for dessert made it all worth it!

I never realized how little red I owned until I went searching in my closet for a red cardigan.  I love how vibrant the color looks, yet if I have a choice I always seem to choose black or grey. If you don’t have a lot of red in your wardrobe, but would like a staple piece then pick up a cable-knit cardigan. You can’t go wrong with a red cardigan, it’s just so versatile. And considering I stole this one from my mother’s closet, I guess that’s the next staple on my wish list too! I’m loving this one at Forever 21, gorgeous and affordable!

We had our first snowfall of the season a few days ago, and it was so beautiful! Snow never lasts long in Tennessee, so I made sure to grab my winter boots and get a few outfit photos before it was too late. My go-to in snowy weather is a warm sweater, a scarf, and comfortable winter boots!

Although I’m almost done all of my Christmas shopping, I’m on my way to the city to see what Black Friday deals are out there today. I didn’t line up at 5am for anything specific this year, I just love being in the midst of all the craziness!
