Happy Monday. AND BLAH! Why is it always Monday? I think today is harder than usual because it’s a holiday week! I hope you have fun plans with your friends & family this week. Yesterday I had a pretty long photo shoot with my photographer, and I have lots of great content to share with you! Let’s started with an outfit of the day featuring this gorgeous black bomber jacket:

Outfit details: Tank // Bomber Jacket // Jeans // Clutch // Necklace, old (similar) // Earrings, old (similar) // Booties // Lipstick // Nail Polish
I got this bomber jacket for a STEAL at $39. It’s still on sale, so go grab it. I absolutely LOVE the ruching on the sleeves. I’m really trying to branch out in my outfits and try things I may not have been initially drawn to. This outfit is one of those.
I even paired it with a silver necklace, and I never wear silver! I’m always a gold girl. However, I think that the long, dangly silver necklace adds a nice touch.
I grabbed this lipstick during the Sephora VIB Rouge sale. It’s a matte lipcolor, and I’ve fallen in love with it. I know I wanted something darker for fall, and this color fits the bill. I have a couple of pointers for darker matte lipstick (if you’re like me and don’t wear it often). First, apply a layer of your favorite chapstick underneath so your lips won’t feel as dry. Second, ONLY apply a thin layer of this lip color, because it can get way too dark way too fast ;)
SALE Alert: These booties are 33% off & under $100 AND my clutch is 20% off!

I turned out really liking this monochrome outfit. I always find myself leaning towards bright colors, but a little black & white can be fun too! Find all of my outfit/style posts here.

Happy Thursday! Who’s ready for the weekend? It’s going to turn cold here (again), so I’m preparing with all of my scarves and boots ;) I don’t know if you’ve been paying attention to trends, but velvet is everywhere! It’s definitely having a moment right now. I’m going to be honest though, I’m not willing to spend an arm and a leg on a trend like this one. I do like it, but it’s not something that I’m going to want to wear for years. Do you know what I mean? That’s why I’ve curated a list of affordable velvet items from Old Navy. Everything is under $50!

Wait…leopard AND velvet? These velvet booties (#11) are in my cart as we speak. I LOVE leopard and we all know this. I think they will add the perfect touch to an otherwise boring outfit!
How to wear: black skinnies + turtleneck
I ordered the velvet tank (#3) in pink and black. I have a couple of holiday parties lined up, and I think this is a versatile top. You can be on trend easily for way under $50. I think pairing the tank with a pencil skirt and blazer will be great for work as well.
How to wear: black pencil skirt + blazer
These pine green velvet pants (#1) are coming to the blog next week. I think styling them with black & white stripes is genius. I really like the ankle length!
How to wear: black + white tee

It’s Wednesday. Thankfully this week is flying by! But let me tell you, fall/winter has come in with a vengeance. We got down in the low 30’s last night and it was COLD! I really love this season though, because I love seeing the changing trees and I don’t even mind a bit of snow ;) I wanted to share another outfit that I shot with my photographer a couple of weeks ago. I know…I’m so behind on my blog posts! This bell sleeve sweater has quickly become one of my favorites!
Outfit details: Lace tank // Bell Sleeve Sweater (on sale for $40!) // Distressed Skinnies // Tote // Necklace // Flats
I’m so obsessed with bell sleeves. I really was unsure how I would like them, but I’ve already ordered a few more items after falling in love with the trend. This sweater is super long which I was nervous about. I like that it makes me look taller, which is never a bad thing ;)
For all my working friends, this tote will be your new BFF. I carry it every day to work with my laptop inside! I like it because the leather is strong enough to hold its shape, even when it’s full. I highly recommend this if you’re in school, too!
After seeing these pictures, I realize I paired a lot of black & brown. I really like the color scheme though, so I’m trying to branch out and not be scared of certain outfits. I like how the lace tank brings a little something extra to the outfit! And a hint of leopard never hurts either!
