Layering Basics





Top: J. Crew | Sweater: J. Crew | Jacket: J. Crew | Jeans: 7 FAM | Necklace: Emerald Bling c/o | Boots: Sperry c/o | Hangbag: Hobo c/o | Watch: Michael Kors | Bracelet: Stella & Dot c/o | Earrings: Nadri | Lips: YSL #17

Good Morning Loves,

I hope you all had a wonderful Christmas!  One of my favorite things to do is layer basic pieces that on their own may be boring, but paired with different textures become exciting.  Especially with the crazy weather we're having in SC- layering is a must!  I love the rich, warm tones {like this bordeaux turtleneck & mossy brown field jacket} mixed with cooler neutrals.  And of course, a little major pop of glam in a statement necklace.

Thanks so much for stopping by, xo!

Mad for Plaid




Top: J. Crew {just sold out online, but loving this one} | Scarf: Cuyana c/o | Jeans: 7 FAM | Hangbag: Hobo c/o | Glasses: Warby Parker | Boots: Hunter | Watch: Michael Kors | Bracelet: Stella & Dot c/o | Lips: MAC Creme 'de Nude

Good Morning Loves,

I hope you all had a great Pre-Christmas weekend!  I'm so excited for the week ahead--spending time with family and friends, lots of amazing food, laughing while listening to old stories and curling up in front of the fireplace with a little hot cocoa.  All of the wonderful things that make up the holidays and I love every minute of it!  

Today, Amy from Coffee Beans and Bobby Pins and I wanted to show you two different ways to wear plaid.  I'm so in love with anything tartan and the print goes perfectly with all of your holiday attire.  It's such an easy way to dress an outfit up or down.  Also, the hunters were not planned, however, we have had a crazy amount of rain here lately, so I apologize for the lack of outfit posts.  I adore my Hunters, but I must say, I wouldn't mind putting them back in the closet for a few days!  

<head on over to Amy's blog and see how she styled her plaid for the holidays>

Cheers to a magical week ahead, xo.
