Another slightly weird outfit for this week's throwback, but one that I still like. I guess the only really out of place piece is the shoes, but what's life without some weird print mixing?  I can't believe this outfit is from 4 years ago. My how time flies!!

Sweater: French Connection, Skirt: made by mom, Scarf: made by me, Heels: Miu Miu (eBay)

The Original:
If you noticed, I said last Friday that I wasn't going to see Star Wars on Thursday - opening day. In the end I changed my mind since I was in Florida and my friends were going, I couldn't not go, right?! So I've seen it twice already and can't wait to see it again.  This is what I wore on Saturday when I saw it with my family! My brother said it looked like I had a wookie skin on with my vest. Whatever. I promise, this will be the last Star Wars themed outfit for a while, I know you guys are probably getting tired of them! Ha ha.

Vest: French Connection (Marshalls), Jeans: FRAME 'Le Skinny de Jeanne Jeans' (Shopbop), Flats: Etienne Aigner (thrifted), R2D2 Necklace c/o Kohl's

A few years ago (well, more than a few...) I would never be caught dead in a turtleneck. Not because I don't like how they look, but because I used to feel like they were choking me. But over the past couple years I've been adding more and more to my closet, this one being from a couple Christmases ago. They're cozy and keep me nice and covered up top. Since this was, yet another, basic outfit I decided to go with some "crazier" accessories!

Sweater: French Connection (TJ Maxx), Jeans: Current/Elliott, Pumps: Jimmy Choo 'Blend' (Roundabout Resale), Necklace: Grandma's, Clutch c/o Mulungi Collection

Layla wanted to get in on the action for today's post.  While I don't actually take her on walks (that's my cousins' job) this would be a perfect outfit to wear while doing so. Statement sneakers plus jeans and a light sweater, great for the days when you don't know what to wear.  Unique shoes are my thing so I was so excited to get these custom Nike's (first seen here.) Many of you know that I'm not usually a sneaker kind of girl, but make them in a fun print out of pony hair and I'm sold!

Sweater: French Connection (Marshalls), Jeans: FRAME 'Le Skinny de Jeanne Jeans' (Shopbop), Shoes: Nike Air Max 90 Premium iD (c/o), Necklace: bought in Santorini

Sometimes when I wear vests they make me feel larger than I really am. In this instance I decided to belt the best to accentuate my shape, or lack thereof. The color of the vest goes so well with the print of this Edun tiered dress, which is one of my favorites. It's light and airy but I can warm it up with tights or, as in this case, a vest.

Dress: Edun (ThredUp), Vest: French Connection (Marshalls), Boots: vintage (eBay)

Top: French Connection, Jeans: J Brand 'Maria' High Rise Skinny (Gilt), Sandals: Ancient Greek Sandals 'Alethea' (bought in Santorini)

This is an outfit I wore while out shopping with Lydia a couple days ago. We headed to Roundabout for their Summer sale (I bought two dresses.) I ordered this top before I went on vacation during French Connection's Extra 50% off sale promotion, which is still going on with code 50SALE.  As I've said many times on the blog, I rarely wear or buy white because I'm afraid of staining/it being see through. Luckily this top isn't see through, but I did get lipstick on it from trying on clothes, GAH!

Top: French Connection, Skirt: Sierra Style (Coco's $10 sale), Sandals: Simply Vera Wang (Kohl's), Bag: Wink and Winn (giveaway win), Sunglasses: Chanel (bought in Athens)

I made my bi-yearly Net-a-Porter Sale purchase this month and was pretty well behaved. I bought a dress and a bathing suit and paid only $16 after advertising money.  I always try to wait until the end of the sale to buy my items hoping they'll be further reduced. When I do this I risk the item selling out before I can get it, but I don't really NEED anything new, so it's a good way to discipline myself. In the past I have bought pieces right away if I felt like it was something that I couldn't live without.  I also ordered a fun tee during French Connection's Extra 70% off sale items promotion.

April Fools! It's not Spring yet. Mother Nature just had to drop some more snow on us! I wore this two weekends ago to help my friend shop for work clothes and then we went to see Cinderella. It was my second time seeing it, and it was still amazing the second time! I didn't want to wear a coat, even though it was cold, so I decided to wear my faux fur vest, which is just as warm!

Vest: French Connection (Marshalls), Sweater: J.Crew, Jeans: Mother c/o Marshalls, Boots: Vince Camuto (Marshalls), Bag: Etienne Aigner (thrifted)

UPDATE: stuck in Florida until tomorrow because of the latest storm. At least Mother Nature is being kind after making me miss the first day of my trip. But it also means I'm missing more work, not good! Cross your fingers that my flight goes out tomorrow!

I'm home from my trip to Florida! This outfit is from before I left, but hopefully I'm finishing this week with regular outfit posts, but starting next week it's Florida outfits!

This outfit is full of animals! A (faux) fur vest, snakeskin textured jeans, snakeskin print shirt AND leopard print loafers. I may have gone a bit overboard, but it kind of works, right?!

Top: Altuzarra for Target, Faux Fur Vest: French Connection (Marshalls), Jeans: Jolt (Marshalls), Flats c/o Joie
