Outfit Details

Pants: Banana Repulic  ||  Top: Old Navy (old)  ||  D’orsay Flats: Nordstrom Rack

Happy Wednesday ladies! Today I share with how I took basic colors and added texture to make the outfit more than just basic. Transitioning to Fall is always about keeping it somewhat lightweight since the temps are still very hot. Adding texture to any outfit is always an option just make sure you don’t have multiple textures going on at once, it will over do the outfit. D’orsay flats are in right now, be sure to find a pair and color you love!

Have you been following along on my daily Instagram adventures?

What are some of your favorite sale items you picked up?

XOXO,

Jessica

Happy Friday! It is the beginning of March and we are still in colder temperatures. Is it already March!?  However, the temperatures are suppose to rise into the 40’s and 50 here in the next week.  Yay!  As for recently, we had some snow and what better way than take some photos in this favorite scarf of mine.  I have had this scarf a few years now and it is definitely my go-to scarf when winter is around.  Okay, call me crazy for wearing these open flats, but I spend most of my work day indoors. I love pairing button ups with sweaters for a classic preppy look. Top it with my scarf to keep me toasty through the winter months.

So of course, it is still scarf weather!  I do see some higher temperatures in our near future though.  Two thumbs up on that!  I will be sharing some of my new favorite items I picked up for the spring/summer time.  Mostly items I will take on our vacation next month.  Countdown has begun!  I just realized how pasty white I am and how that Caribbean sunshine might eat me alive. 🙂  Who has big plans for the weekend? What are you up to?

Oh and remember I keep it really here on the blog, yes it was a bad hair day. 🙂

Happy Friday,

Jessica

I hope your week is starting off great. Monday is over so it is only up hill from here, right?

The struggle of putting together work attire can be stressful. It does not have to be difficult. Start with basic pieces and pieces that can mix well with one another. Todays post include a few basic pieces.

This fairly new soft pink sweater from Old Navy is a great piece that will take me into winter. I can get very hot wearing sweaters indoors. This sweater is not bulky for wearing indoors at work and can serve as a layering piece during the colder months. If you have yet to add sweaters to your fall wardrobe, I would suggest they be at the top of your basic pieces for fall and winter.

Another basic piece that should already be in your closet is a trench coat. A trench coat works for fall and spring. I have owned this trench coat for years. It is perfect for chilly days and when you are not quite ready for your heavy wool coat. Trench coats are a staple piece that will not go out of style.

Do you own a trench coat already? If so, what do you pair with your trench coat? 

XOXO,

Jessica
