Happy Thanksgiving!

I hope you all had a fantastic Thanksgiving with your loved ones! 
I am so incredibly thankful to have a loving, supportive family, amazing true friends, cuddly animals, a roof over my head, many pairs of pretty shoes to cover my feet, food to enjoy, a job I love, and of course all of you! Thank you so much for following along with me and supporting me in this little blog over the past two years! It means the world to me!

Perfect Basics

I firmly believe that a good wardrobe is comprised of fabulous basics.  Basics, in my opinion, are pieces that can be seamlessly mixed and matched to create new outfits with utter ease.  In short, this means that they go with absolutely everything.  Also, chances are that these are also the pieces that you will have five years from now as well!  They are the pieces with the timeless elegance that many of us long to have in our outfits.  Good basics are the pieces that I don't feel guilty splurging on because I know that they're cost per wear will be minimal (see the post on cost per wear here to see my explanation of why it's such an important thing to consider when shopping).
Be sure to check in during the next few days to see my various gift guides and Black Friday sale picks!
For now, be sure to check out the following amazing deals that are being offered:



 // Trench:  Burberry (less expensive version here)  // Denim: Joe's (old; love these for up to 25% off with code:  GOBIG15) // Flats:  Steve Madden (old; identical here) // Handbag: Saint Laurent (less expensive nearly identical here) // Sunnies:  Chanel //

pleats and sales

 Happy Tuesday!
I love anything that can be best described as classic with a twist. To be concise, I mean anything that has a classic feel to it with an element of modern surprise. This outfit does just that.  I am in love with the classic appeal of a white button up.  This one adds the perfect modern touch with the pleated detailing on the bottom of it.  I honestly wish that it came in more colors!  The best part is that it is currently on sale (actually just about everything in this post is on sale)!
Hope your enjoying your Thanksgiving week!

capes & knee high boots

If it's one thing that I can't seem to get enough of, it's capes.   They are so cozy and chic at the same time.  While this one sold out faster than I could link it, I linked an even better one (that I also own and love) that could be worn the exact same way.  Since my family doesn't get super dressed up for Thanksgiving, I am currently thinking that a cape, boots, and leggings might just have to be my Thanksgiving day outfit!  It is absolutely perfect to wear for a day where you want to be able to eat as much as you want and be completely comfortable yet still look like you tried a little!

Flowy Sweaters & Dalmation Booties

For being a teacher, I feel that most of the time, I do not dress like one.  However, I do love a good cardigan like most do!  Transitional weather and my notoriously hot/cold classroom make me love them even more.  This one is exceptional.  I am heavily debating in ordering even more colors.  

Also, you all are very well aware by now that I love a good pair of boots.  This pair is one of my all time faves this season.  I love the calf hair texture and the beautiful animal print.  In my opinion, they are must haves!  Just like leopard print, this print also seems to be a neutral and goes with just about everything!  
Thanks for reading!

// Cardigan:  Nordstrom // Denim:  Joe's (old; love these) // Handbag:  Chanel // Booties:  Matisse // Sunnies:  Tom Ford //

Modern Bohemian

Happy Friday, Everyone!  We made it to the weekend! Woo-hoo! 
Lately, bohemian looks have been a strong favorite of mine.  If it is flowy, has fringe, or lace, I'm all over it!  This look incorporates all three.  I'm seriously smitten with this style!
Enjoy your weekend!

Hi Everyone!
I'm sure you've noticed that I'm absolutely infatuated with this vest!  See it styled here & here.  It not only goes with everything, but is also so incredibly cozy!  I just can't seem to get enough of it. Easy pieces that can be transitioned easily are always my favorite.  I love that this can be worn at work with a dress, on date night with a pretty lace top and ripped denim & here where we were headed out for a weekend movie!

// Vest:  Loft // Shirt:  J.Crew (also love and own this one) // Denim:  Joes (old; love these) // Booties:  Joie (love & own this more affordable version) //

Cozy Dresses

Happy Tuesday, Everyone!
I've said it more than once in the past few weeks that dresses, vests, and booties are my favorite pairing as of late!  This combination of the three is my favorite yet.  I seriously wish I could wear this a few times a week.  It's effortlessly chic and really cuddly too!  Thanks for stopping by!
