It's a Wrap

Outfit details: DVF dress, Stuart Weitzman boots, J Crew necklace, Sara Campbell coat (similar here), Celine handbag, Hermes scarf

I woke up feeling under the weather and with no voice at all.  I could barely squeak out a word but I dragged myself to work anyway.  I also had high hopes of going to the Boston Blogger's party so I wanted to look better than I felt.  The DVF wrap dress was the perfect remedy since it's super comfy but looks great too.

To keep even cozier in the cold winter weather we are beginning to have, I wore a green coat with a removable faux fur collar from Sara Campbell.

Sadly I did not make it to the Boston Blogger's holiday party.  I couldn't muster the energy or the voice to actually be able to chat with people but I so look forward to all the reports!



Outfit details: H&M sweater cape, Ann Taylor chambray blouse, Zara skinny jeans, Tahari coat, Diba boots (very old), Celine bag, Hermes scarf, Bauble Bar bracelets, J Crew necklace

I have a closet (or three) chock full of clothes, yet lately I keep finding myself drawn to the same things.  This H&M sweater cape (or my navy blue one) has been in constant rotation (worn previously here) paired with skinny jeans and layered with a blouse for added warmth. What's your uniform?

I'm also wearing these fun new bangles that I ordered from Bauble Bar in both silver and rose metals (get them here).  I like mixing the metals together.

And finally, further to my post on the Tom Ford lipsticks (here), on this day I wore the black orchid lipstick.  It's less severe than one might think though when more layers are applied, it does get darker. 


Extra Pop

Outfit details: J Crew cashmere turtleneck (get it here), J. Crew cafe capri trousers (get them here ), Stewart Weitzman booties (old but similar here or here) , Tahari jacket (similar here), Miu Miu bag (get it here). J Crew necklace (similar here), Elisha Daniels bracelet (similar here)

Are you sick of seeing me in my J Crew cafe capri trousers yet?  I have three pairs of them though must admit that this pair is my favorite.  You might recall a wee dilemma I had in deciding how I would make them work as it gets colder (post here).  I got several comments with great ideas and here is my first pass.  I wore them with a pair of Stewart Weitzman booties that I've had forever and I have to say, I like the combo.  I also really liked pairing them with my super bright J Crew cashmere turtleneck for that extra pop of color that you all know I love!




Weekend Tidbits - Holiday Entertaining

A flower arrangement in festive holiday colors.

Wine glasses at the ready for my guests.

Whimsical cocktail napkins "wine goes with everything I wear".

Delicious (and easy to make) hot artichoke dip made from this Martha Stewart recipe.

Cured meats from The Butcher Shop.

Decadent cheese plate from South End Formaggio.

And finally, sausage, peppers and onions served with rigatoni and homemade tomato sauce.



Outfit details: J Crew sweater, Banana Republic trousers, Chanel flats, Miu Miu bag, Milly jacket, Elisha Daniels and Chanel necklaces, Hermes bangle

Oh how fond I am of the tan and black color combo with the pop of red (see another version here).  There's just nothing that I don't like from J Crew lately and this sweater is no exception.  The red jacket from Milly for me is the perfect something extra I need.

Thanks for your kind words yesterday.  We all have our bad days and sometimes good comes out of the bad.  For me, the good was getting a big of reinvigoration.  Besides, it's Friday now and what's bad about that, right?
