Dress: JCrew Factory (last year)  ||   Heels: Nine West (old) (similar)  ||  Clutch: EBAY (here)  ||  Coat: Forever21 (here)  ||  Polka Dot tights: Old Navy  (here) ||  Earrings: Lia Sophia (old)

All bangs aside! Okay, maybe that sounded better in my head than out loud. No, for real though anyone else notice my bangs to the side?  That is right, I am trying to grow them out so they are nice and long for the warmer days ahead.  Ahhhh, are you as ready for those warmer days as I am? Maybe it is because this photo shoot was very windy and piercing cold to my face.  I had many ‘bloopers’ that were pretty funny to laugh at when I created this post. So with the piercing cold still around, today I chose to share this soft pink coat I picked up two weeks ago for $20! Yep. A coat for $20 is a pretty big deal in my closet. One of my winter wardrobe must dos this year was adding colored coats.  Bam! By pairing this soft pink coat with this bold cobalt blue peter pan collar dress it was just what I needed to add a bright pop of color to my outfit.  And how can we forget these oh so cute polka dot tights!  If you have been following along on My Brunette Adventure you know polka dots are a favorite of mine.

Do you own any winter coats with color? Or just black and tan? What are some of your favorite ways to wear your colored coats?

Stay Warm!

Happy start to the weekend friends! Its Friday! So glad the sun is deciding to stay out a bit more these days.  You are probably wondering what all this white coat non sense is about? Lets face it, this as close as I will get to wearing a ‘white coat’.  You know, in doc terms. Ha! Well, if you have been around the blog a while you know I love a good blazer for the office.  Today was no exception, I needed something to bring light to this outfit since the dress and boots were dark.  I am still not to sure how I feel about this combo, but all that matters is I rocked it thinking it looked pretty edgy. What do you guys think? Yay? Nay?  By the way, olive green is one of my favorite colors to wear in the fall and winter months, but for some odd reason I do not have many pieces in my wardrobe.

Ladies, might I add that these boots are on sale for $30! Yes, a pair of black over the knee boots for $30, score! I absolutely love these boots. They are a bargain compared to the $500 plus pair of Stuart Weitzman we have all been drooling over. As for these new beauties, my sunglasses, I was so happy to find them this past weekend at TJMaxx. From the moment I saw Karen Walker’s awesome sunglasses I was in love, but could not cough up that kind of cash for sunglasses.  Lets be real, over $200 a pair does not fit with my ‘real girl’ budget. Who is with me??  So these beauties will work just great and only cost $10! Awesome! Be sure to check back early next week to see another great deal I scored on a winter coat!

Have a great weekend!

XOXO,

Skirt: J.Crew Factory (on sale + extra 40% off)  (here)  ||  Top: New York and Company (old)  ||  Blazer: Express (similar)  ||  Shoes: Aldo (old) (love these)  ||  Necklace: Forever21 (old) (similar)  ||  Tights: H&M (here)

Brrrrrrrr! It is very cold here in the Midwest and we are trying to keep warm. If you live somewhere nice and warm, I envy you right now. Palm trees, sunshine and sand in my toes sounds perfect right about now. I guess for the time being, we will stick with dark skies, warm boots and snow beneath our feet.

With it being winter, office wear is the last thing I want to put on for the blistering cold.  However, it can be done to create a stylish work outfit. Winter whites are a favorite of mine this season and this wool skirt is a perfect addition to my winter wardrobe.  This skirt is currently on sale plus an additional 40% off! That is a major deal so head over to J.Crew Factory to take a look at their sale items.

There are so many ways to incorporate winter white in with your other winter pieces. I simply went very office appropriate with tights, heels, a burgundy top and blazer to top it off. Of course, my black winter coat was not far to help keep me warm. This was our coldest shoot to date! Brrrrrrrr! I also apologize for those few winkles on my skirt. 🙂 After a day at the office, it happens, right ladies?

How will you wear your winter whites? Would you like to see a winter white casual look?

Stay Warm,

Jessica
