Dots and Leopard

Outfit details: J Crew top, Talbots cardigan, J Brand love story jeans, Celine bag, Hermes scarf, Elisha Daniels necklaces

I'm still under the weather but at least  got most of my voice back.  Squawking at people at work with little to no voice is just not effective!  Sadly I missed yet ANOTHER fun blogger soiree Thursday night; it sucks to be under the weather.  But I'm just thrilled it's Friday so hopefully a little rest and relaxation will nurse me back to health!


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.
