Sweater:  Forever 21  (On Clearance now!)  ||   White Denim: Michael Kors via TJMaxx (last summer)  (similar)  ||   Boots: Target (similar)   ||   Faux Fur Vest: Forever 21 ($9 last winter) (similar)  ||   Watch: Target (here)   ||   Clutch: EBAY  (here)

Let me just say the weather was great for about……one day here in the Midwest before it was back to the cold winter temperatures.  Nothing like wearing my winter blues to be in the winter spirit.  Can you believe I got this navy blue cowl neck sweater on clearance for $5! YAY! I love a great deal and my closet can always use sweaters for this cold winter weather, right? What would be more amazing for my closet if I was packing all my swimsuits and shorts for a vacation! 🙂  Who else is ready for some sunshine and warmer temps?

Before you jump to conclusions on the other parts of this outfit, white denim hear me out.  Okay, you might be opposed to the wearing white after Labor Day, but I do not believe in that “rule”.  My only rule for wearing white after Labor Day is make sure the pieces you are wearing are the right textures and fabrics for it to be A-okay in my book.  Are you a no white after Labor Day kind of person?

Another quick and easy outfit in my opinion to run errands and enjoy the weekend activities you might have planned. Depending on your workplace dress code, you might be able to get away with this look for the office. Comfort, check! I am just loving this simple look, be sure to check out the outfit details above. Recently, I stated I would be posting 3-4 times a week. On a happy note, I am doing my best to bring you all 4-5 posts a week! Thank you for being loyal readers!

XOXO,

Jessica

Happy Friday! I hope you are all ready for the weekend. Well before you head off to your weekend plans, I have put together this outfit combo.  It was a little out of the box, but I think it turned out okay. What do you think of todays combo? Yay? Nay?

If you are somewhat new to the blog, one reason I started this blog was to get creative and think outside the box at what ‘spoke’ to me in my wardrobe. Sometimes you just throw some pieces together and they work great. Other times, we learn it was not our best combo to date.  I encourage you to utilize what is already in your closet. Mix, match and play with what you already have, it can be a lot of fun!

This skirt has always been a difficult piece for me in terms of what I think works best with it.  Today, I chose to pair it with my favorite chambray shirt.  To top it off, I threw on this faux fur vest. The vest added a little extra something to finish off the look. I also am very sorry for my very pale legs. You could say I am in need of a warm beach and some sunshine about now. Yes please!

I know you are wondering when the gift card giveaway will be annouced. Well, patience, but the giveaway should be up very soon. Be sure to visit back each day to catch how you can enter to win. Also, be sure to follow our Facebook page and Instagram, updates will be posted there as well.

Have fun and a safe weekend!

    I just want to say sorry for being MIA the past two days. I hope you guys enjoy todays outfit post as much as I do. It was a really fun shoot and I am sure the pictures show just how much I crack up laughing at my ‘photographer’ during our outfit shoots.

    Are any of you having the hardest time adjusting to a time change? Yes, I am still struggling to adjust. I know my schedule to get these photo shoots in are all over the place. It is dark when I go to work and almost dark when I get home from my commute. With the time change that always means one thing here in Indiana, cold weather is right behind.  Today it was very windy and very chilly. Brrrrrrrrrr.

    Can you believe this faux fur vest was only $9 at Forever21? I wanted to try out faux fur two winters ago, so I thought what better way than one at a lower cost? I picked up this one at the end of the season and got a major steal! I am loving this faux fur over the plaid pattern. The plaid shirt and faux fur vest compliment each other well. A faux fur vest is another way to layer in the fall. You can put on a sweater and/or long sleeves, then top off with the faux fur vest to keep you warmer on chilly days. How do you wear your faux fur vest?

I hope you all had a great week. Today is Friday, happy weekend! See you for tomorrow’s post. 

Much Love,

Jessica
