Stripes + Gingham

 Turtleneck: J.Crew | Shirt: J.Crew {really want this} | Jeans: J.Crew {just ordered these} | Boots: old, similar} | Crossbody: Tory Burch {similar} | Earrings: Baublebar c/o | Sunglasses: Karen Walker | Lips: Stila 'Beso'

My favorite casual combination as of late: stripes + gingham.  This is such an easy, light-layering look that's comfortable, yet chic for a busy day of running around town.  You could also add a light jacket for cooler days and I love this one!

Don't forget that for most websites, Saturday and Sunday are the absolute last days for standard holiday delivery!  Here's all of the shipping info (most are free!) for some of my favorite retailers: NordstromJ.CrewBaublebarTory BurchAnthropologie & Piperlime.  Be sure to shop THIS WEEK for those last minute people on your list and beat the deadline!

Bordeaux + Plaid

 Sweater: Chicwish c/o | Skirt: Chicwish c/o | Boots: DUO c/o {love these} | Handbag: ZAC Zac Posen c/o | Sunglasses: Prada | Watch: MK | Rings: Baublebar + Brandy Pham c/o | Lips: MAC 'Plum' Liner + YSL 'Rouge Pur Couture' #31

I'm loving the plaid design in this cute, little mini skirt!  I decided to pair it with bordeaux, after obsessing over this sweater from a post a few weeks ago.  The school girl look is one that I wouldn't wear all the time, but love for the occasional change.  You seriously cannot go wrong with an oversized sweater- it pairs so well with everything!

Cable Knit + Coffee


Sweater: Chicwish c/o | Jeans: J.Crew {love these, 25% off with code SHOP25} | Boots: Tory Burch {love these} | Clutch: Clare Viver | Hat: Rag & Bone {I wear a medium} | Sunglasses: Karen Walker | Watch: MK | Bracelets: Stella & Dot c/o | Rings: Brandy Pham c/o + Baublebar | Lips: YSL 'Sheer Candy' #1

Happy hump day, lovelies!  Unlike the weekend, the weather here is slowly, but surely getting cool again.  The change was so nice while it lasted, but in a split second, we're back to cable knits + coffee {as if the starbucks ever stopped...}.  There are so many staple pieces that I love in this one outfit: this fedora, these riding boots and my foldover clutch.  Chic accessories can completely upgrade a simple, sweater + jean combination into something totally different.  To be honest, I haven't been able to find very many hats that look great on me, but this Rag & Bone fedora is everything.  I already have two colors and want them all!!  My only problem is I don't have a very good way to store them.  If you guys have any suggestions on how to store hats so they don't get messed up, I would love to hear them!  All three of these staple pieces are so versatile and a great addition to any closet.

70 in December

 Top: J.Crew | Skirt: Chicwish c/o {less than $40!} | Shoes: Carolinna Espinosa c/o {obsessed!} | Clutch: Clare Viver | Watch: MK | Bracelets: Stella & Dot c/o + Brandy Pham c/o | Rings: Baublebar + Brandy Pham c/o | Necklace: Baublebar c/o | Sunglasses: Karen Walker | Lips: YSL 'Sheer Candy' #1 {still my absolute favorite!}

We had such beautiful weather this weekend here in Greenville - it actually got up to 70 degrees yesterday!!  Although I love cold weather during the holidays, the change was so refreshing.  I immediately pulled out the open-toed sandals + mini skirts out of the back of the closet and soaked up every bit of sunshine I could.  These Carolinna Espinosa gladiator sandals are my newest obsession!  I love the soft, nude color + luxury, Italian leather and can't wait to wear them with everything come Spring!  {Use code FORALLTHINGSLOVELY20 for 20% off your purchase @ Carolinna Espinosa through the remainder of the year}  I'm sure the freezing, cold weather will be back in the next couple of days, but it sure was nice while it lasted!  I hope you all had a lovely weekend!

All I Want for Christmas...

My Wish List
Louboutin Nude Pumps {save option} | J.Crew Coat | Kate Spade Studs | David Yurman Ring | Philip Lim Bag | Burberry Scarf | Rag & Bone Fedora | Jo Malone Perfume | YSL Clutch | Samsung Camera

Tis the season for gift guides, right?!  Since I've posted so many (along with every other fashion blogger you guys follow) gifts for her, him, them, their dog, your bestie...ALL of it, I thought it may be nice to show you what's actually on my Christmas wish list this year!  I've turned over a new leaf in the last couple of years, in that I try to invest more- buy less.  A few years ago, I would've had a list a mile long, but the older I get and the more my style develops, the more I want investment pieces.  Don't get me wrong, I love a $40, trendy top as much as the next girl, but when it comes to your everyday staple pieces, these are a few of my favorites.  In my opinion, Christmas is a great excuse to wish for things that you wouldn't typically buy for yourself, so why not splurge a little bit?!

Bundled Up with Nordstrom







 Cardigan: Nordstrom | Top: Nordstrom {similar + love this} | Jeans: 7FAM via Nordstrom | Shoes: old, similar here + here} | Scarf: Nordstrom | Gloves: Nordstrom | Hat: Nordstrom | Sunglasses: Ray Ban  {on sale!}| Watch: MK | Handbag: ZAC Zac Posen {similar} | Lips: MAC 'Plum' Lipliner + YSL 'Rouge Pur Couture #31

As most of you know, I absolutely believe that accessories completely make an outfit.  During the fall + winter months, I love stocking up on chic hats, gloves and scarves to bundle up in.  The Echo collection at Nordstrom has so many different styles + colors and is completely affordable.  For this outfit, I decided to pair darker colors like green + black with cooler neutrals for a cozy look and threw in stripes + leopard for a subtle pop.  These pieces are definitely cold weather staples that can be worn again and again throughout the season.
