Mustard & Polka Dots

Shirt: J Crew, Skirt: BCBG Max Azria, Bag: Vintage, Earrings: H&M, Watch: Kessaris Quartz, Necklace: Via Nordstrom Rack, Shoes: Issac Mizrahi

Today I paired one of my favorite mustard skirts with a silky spotted blouse and pretty red accents. I think I own about five different variations of the BCBG bandage skirt and I love every single one of them. Definitely a great purchase!

Also, I'm not sure if you're familiar with Sole Society, but I just recently became a member and they have really cute, affordable, and on trend shoes. I'm in love with this pair, this pair, and this pair, just to name a few.

Shirt: Old Navy (old), Sweater: Via Ross, Jeans: Life In Progress via Forever 21  (recent), Trench: Banana Republic, Earrings: H&M, Necklaces: J Crew & Gifted, Watch: Michael Kors, Bracelet: Outrage Fashion, Rings: Cache, Bag: Alfani, Shoes: Charles David loving this pretty silver pair

Today these pretty coral pants were speaking to me so I decided to dress around them. Recently I noticed that I had a bit of a denim shortage going on in my wardrobe so I figured I should buy a few new pairs. These lovelies made the cut and I absolutely love them! They carry them in several other pretty colors so I'm thinking I may need to scoop them up!

Happy Tuesday! Xo -Elizabeth

Vintage Treasures

Dress: ASOS, Belt: Vintage: Via Fairfax Flea Market, Earrings: Vintage, Bracelet: Gifted, Shoes: Guess, Bag: Gucci

I was at the Fairfax flea market a few weeks back when I discovered this gorgeous green belt. I knew that it would add the perfect amount of visual interest to any outfit. I love finding vintage treasures. I paired it with a simple black maxi dress so that it could be the star of the show. It made my Monday just a little bit brighter.

Leather & Fur

Blazer: Sisley, Shirt: Forever 21, Faux Fur Vest: Apt 9, Pants: Forever 21 (recent), Clutch: Thrifted, Necklaces: Nina Shoes c/o & Gifted, Earrings: H&M, Watch: Michael Kors, Shoes: Gucci

Although we started off the week warm sunny and smiling, we ended with it being cold and rainy.  That's okay,  it gave me the perfect excuse to pull out my cozy fur vest and faux leather pants. If it's warmer where you are you can always remove the vest but I sure do love the mix of textures!

I hope you have a great weekend! Thanks so much for reading. Xo -Elizabeth

Shorts Suited

Sweater: Forever 21, Jacket: Forever 21, Shorts: Forever 21, Tights: ASOS, Bag: Vintage, Bracelets: Forever 21, Charming Charlie, Charlotte Russe, Earrings: H&M, Watch: Michael Kors

I love a matchy matchy shorts suits and I love tweed. So when I saw this pretty blue ensemble for a steal, I just couldn't resist. I paired it with pretty gold accessories, t-strap pumps, and a bold red lip.

Happy Wednesday!

Sweater: J Crew Factory more colors on sale here, Shirt: Custom Men's, Skirt: Guess, Earrings: Flea Market In London, Watch: Kessaris Quartz, Bracelet: Charming Charlie, Bag: Nina Shoes c/o, Shoes: Miu Miu, Lipstick: Mac "Amplified"

I would describe myself as someone who loves color and patterns. I love to mix prints and pair unlikely color combinations, but sometimes there is nothing like a classic black and white outfit. I felt ladylike in a minimalist sort of way. Perhaps the French twist, pink lipstick, and pearl clip-ons are to blame? Sometimes it's the little details that make all the difference.

 Thanks so much for reading!

Happy  Monday! It was so nice to have the day off work. I spent most of my day around the house doing some fun DIY projects that I can't wait to share with you. I also got to go out and enjoy the gorgeous weather a little bit so I slipped on my favorite green shorts, a subtle polka dot button up, and strappy sandals.

I hope you had a great weekend! Xo -Elizabeth

Prints & Bows

Sweater: BCBG Max Azria (dress worn as top, seen before here), Bow Blouse: Fashion of Echo, Skirt: BCBG Max Azria, Earrings: H&M, Necklace: Tiffany & Co., Faux Fur Snood: ASOS buy it here, Gloves: Loemans, Watch: Michael Kors, Bracelets: Cache & Charming Charlie, Bag: Prada, Shoes: Gucci

Today I wore one of my favorite dresses as a top. It caught my eye because I really wanted to layer my bow blouse under a printed sweater. After realizing that I didn't really have any good options, I decided I would try tucking the skirt of this sweater dress into my pencil skirt, and voila! It worked. Luckily, this BCBG bandage skirt is really fitted and made out of thick stretchy material causing it to create a seamless silhouette. I topped it off with my go-to leather accessories. I love using these tricks to maximize my wardrobe! I hope you had a fantastic weekend!
