I really need to start wearing all my blazers again. I have so many and can't get rid of them because they all hold such special memories and are just plain pretty! I mostly stopped wearing them because I don't go out to many "events" these days and wearing a blazer to the grocery store on the weekend feels funny. But I'm just going to go for it now! They're outerwear, so they're practical for this chilly weather This is one of my more recent blazers, bought for $36 in early 2019. Probably one of my last blazer purchases because I made myself stop buying them.

Blazer: Sandro burgundy double breasted blazer (Roundabout Resale)

Striped Top: Splendid 'Duke' striped pullover c/o Shopbop

Jeans: Everlane high-rise skinny jean in mid-blue

Ankle Boots: Candie's "ChiChi" Faux Suede Platform Heeled Boots c/o Kohl's 

Bag: Dark Purple Chloé Faye (eBay)

We've got sort of a cosmic/moon theme going on in this outfit. It started off with me picking this cosmic embroidered cardigan to build my look and ended with my painting my nails with some gold splatters and topping the look off with a moon necklace.

This look felt a little frumpy until I made a couple changes. First I tucked in the tee instead of having it out over the high waisted jeans. Second I slightly rolled up the jeans so they rested just above the boots. Both of these modifications instantly made me look taller.

Cardigan: J.Crew Cosmic Embroidery sweater (shop more cardigans), Tee: Zara (shop short sleeved tees), Jeans: Everlane high-rise skinny jean in mid-blue (shop more high waisted jeans), Ankle Boots: Candie's c/o Kohl's (shop more heeled booties),  Simple Pearl Necklace c/o AURate (shop delicate necklaces), Crescent Moon Necklace: Marrin Costello

*Onecklace gifted the piece featured in this post, but all opinions are my own.  

Now that we're nearing the middle of November, it's time to start thinking more seriously about holiday gifts! For those ladies on your list that are hard to shop for, I recommend checking out the specialty jewelry at oNecklace. The snowflake necklace I'm wearing here is the perfect gift for someone who is particular about their jewelry and wants a more custom piece without it needing to be engraved with their name or their birthstone on it; which oNecklace also offers! See some posts of me wearing their name and birthstone jewelry here and here.

You're able to choose your metal, chain length, chain style and clasp! For my snowflake necklace I chose rose gold plating, 20 inch ROLO chain and a lobster clasp. I'm a huge fan of lobster clasps because they're far easier than those pesky spring clasps most necklaces come with. The necklace is nice and thin and I love the detailing of the snowflake's crystals.

I've been blog neglecting this cardigan a bit over the last year or so. I got it in January 2015 and wore it CONSTANTLY, it became my default airplane outfit and I loved wearing it. But I guess I thought I wore it too much and stopped wearing it as much. It hasn't been on the blog since last November (in a similar outfit) but I've worn it at least a few times in the past year, I swear!

Cardigan: DKNY Oversized striped knitted cardigan (Net-a-Porter Sale), Cashmere Turtleneck: Vince (Marshalls), Jeans: Everlane high-rise skinny jean in mid-blue, Ankle Boots: Candie's c/o Kohl's (also here),  Bag: Etienne Aigner (thrifted), Snowflake Necklace c/o oNecklace

I've been trying to get out of my jeans and sweater rut so I looked through my fashion week folder on my computer and found this Daks Fall 2017 look I wanted to recreate. It's not exactly the same since I'm wearing a navy blue and boots instead of loafers, but it gets the feel! Who says you can't wear black and blue together, right?

Sweater: Phillip Lim x Target, Skirt: Siena Style (Coco's $10 sale), Boots: Candie's c/o Kohl's, Bag: Chanel Classic 2.55 Double Flap (Madison Avenue Couture)

The Inspiration:

I've amassed quite the collection of vests over the past couple of years and they all involve fur. This one is the most unique since it's chevron printed AND multicolored! Lydia got it for me for Christmas and it was such a great find! The fact that there are so many colors in it makes it a lot easier to style than you'd think. I think next time I'll wear it with light brown.

Fur Vest: Romeo & Juliet Couture (from Lydia), Turtleneck: Vanessa Bruno (Coco's $10 sale), Jeans: Free People, Boots: Candie's c/o Kohl's, Sunglasses: Ray Ban 'Erika' c/o Ditto, Bag: Emm Kuo 'Calle Bahia' (Roundabout Resale)

I may have gone a little overboard with the blue in this outfit. But I finished it off with a crazy green sweater so an overdoes of blue is the least of my worries. These new jeans are SO comfortable. It's like I'm wearing sweatpants, except they're high waisted so sitting for long periods can get a little uncomfortable. But they're super soft and thin.

Suede Jacket: Ralph Lauren (Marshalls) Sweater: French Connection c/o Marshalls, Jeans: J Brand Maria High Rise (The RealReal), Boots: Candies c/o Kohl's

I can't get over my obsession with this sweater. It's like a security blanket for me. If I don't know what to wear I wear this. If I'm going on a plane in the winter/fall, I wear it. Some items I'm quick to purchase even if they're expensive and I end up hardly wearing them. Such is the case with a lot of items in my closet, sadly. I am getting better at not buying things just because they are on super sale, but I've got a long way to go before I made good purchases all the time. However, this was totally worth the $94 I was hesitant to pay last January during the NAP sale.

Cardigan: DKNY (Net-a-Porter sale), Sweater: Everlane, Jeans: Current/Elliott (The Outnet), Boots: Candie's c/o Kohl's

How is this the first post of 2016?! I think 2015 went by way too fast, but it was full of fun and magic!  Starting the year off with a dreary-backgrounded outfit post. But at least my outfit includes some brightness, even if it is monochromatic.  This really fun necklace was my Christmas gift from Lydia. And, oddly enough, I almost bought her the same thing! That happened last year too...

Sweater: BCBG, Jeans: Free People (Marshalls), Boots: Candie's c/o Kohl's, Necklace: House of Harlow Sunburst Pendant (gift)
