I am wearing such a simple outfit today (khaki and black) that I almost didn’t post it- but I wanted to show that black and tan doesn’t have to be boring, especially when paired with a gorgeous necklace. This pendant, with it’s vibrant green color, draws the eye immediately to it.
It is from one of my absolute favorite jewelry lines, Stella and Dot*, which my friend Carrie happens to represent.
Every girl needs a statement necklace- and I think this is a perfect addition to this otherwise plain outfit.
Paired with my cargos and a black tank and a black cardigan, it makes for a stylish, yet very easy outfit.

This crazy Pacific Northwest weather! After what felt like spring yesterday there is frost on the ground today. It’s cold out there!
Today I’m wearing jeans again- and this time I’m showing looser fitting jeans- since not everyone wants to wear skinnys!
These are my Paige Premium denim and they fit so well. They are a dark blue wash, the waistband is high (no whale tail peeking out the back) and I like the boot cut.
On the right I’m showing just jeans and the turtleneck. Nothing wrong with this look- add a necklace and it could be really cute. However, because it is so darn cold- I decided to add a vest and a scarf.
I like the multiple layers and the contrasting patterns (quilted vest, cable knit sweater and the floral scarf). On my feet I’m wearing my wedge black shoes again! I knew I’d love these babies!
My linkup today is with Girlymama for Fashion Friday! Have fun!
Hello Friends! After an entire day of no electricity, I’m so happy to have the power back on and access to my computer! Yeah! Thank you Puget Sound Energy!
Since it’s yet another cold and snowy day, my outfit today will need to be warm, comfy and casual! Big surprise there, huh?
I’ve opted for my gray skinny cords and this cute striped turtleneck from J Crew.
I think it looks great alone, but to add just a little something different, I’ve thrown on this utility vest. Not 100% sure that I love this outfit- the color combo is something I’ve never worn before.
Please let me know what you think. You won’t hurt my feelings, I promise!
Well, I almost made it a whole week without wearing my skinny jeans- but when it comes down to it- they are one of my favorites- so why fight it?!
The funny thing about this outfit is that I was actually planning on wearing this skirt on the right. But upon trying it on (especially paired with this belted cardigan), I realized that this look is NOT FLATTERING, and in fact very matronly and dated.
Oh that can’t be! I love this skirt and still remember when I bought it at Nordstoms.
When in doubt, take a picture of yourself in a questionable item- the camera doesn’t lie!
So, that being said, I decided to go back to my ever favorite, ever comfy skinnies.
This outfit works better because of the balance of the loose, flowy cardigan on top and skinny jeans on bottom. With the skirt- there is too much volume on both my top and on bottom- hence the matronly, frumpy look.
Per a suggestion from yesterday’s shoe dilemma, I’m wearing my new favorite shoes- the desert bootie. I think these might just be the shoe for me. I like the wedge heel (so much more comfy than a regular high heel), the color is neutral so it goes with anything) and it’s a great alternative to knee high boots.
I’m loving this weather, it’s fall, yet it’s still warm enough for skirts without tights! To be honest, I’m not a huge fan of tights. But, as I venture on this fashion journey- and as much as I love skirts- I’ll probably have to embrace the tights look as soon as it gets cold.
But, for now- this is what I’m wearing. I paired a cute mini with a denim shirt. On the right I am a little buttoned up. A little prim for me!
On the left I threw a cute embellished t shirt on, then layered the denim (unbuttoned), rolled the sleeves (amazing what a difference this makes), tucked it in and added my cute leopard belt from Target. I’m wearing sandals because it’s supposed to be really hot today, but cute ballet flats would work as well.
Here’s what I’ve learned- it’s not necessarily what you wear, it’s HOW you wear it. Don’t you agree?
