Gold, gold, gold!

Leggings: Old Navy; Cardi: J. Crew; Top and Ring: H&M; Shoes: Sam Edelman; Watch: Target; Blue Gemstone Necklace: Bauble Bar; Multi Colored Necklace (doubled): SO old

If you haven’t noticed by now, my daily uniform (of sorts) is pretty much leggings, a cardi, and flats. Then I pile some accessories on top. The day I wore this was sad and grey out, so I really needed to bring my own warmth and sparkle to the day. Enter a giant flowy golden top (which I would never normally wear with a cardi, but I loved it once I tried it!) and layers of gold everywhere. On my shoes, my wrists, my neck, EVERYWHERE!

(Note the perfect braided bun. I finally figured out the trick to this not looking like a mess and I’ll be sharing it with you next week!)

Hope you’re all having a great week (and staying warm if you live where I do)!

Jeggings, All Dressed Up In The Cold

20130129-145529.jpg
Jeggings: Old Navy; Top: Forever 21; Cardi: Narciso Rodriguez for Kohls; Bracelet and Monogram Necklace: Bauble Bar; Statement Necklace: J Crew; Wedges: BCBG; Clutch: Vintage Colombetti (aka this belonged to my super stylish Grandma)

What happens when you’re going to a celebration dinner and the windchill is 4 degrees and you may have to walk 6 blocks to the restaurant? You pull together a ladylike jeans outfit because a dress is just completely out of the question.

I decided to go as demure as possible with the details of this outfit to dress it up a bit. Notice the flat simple clutch, sweater buttoned at the collar, and necklace over said collar.

I went with low wedges instead of boots to keep with the ladylike vibe I had going. Aesthetically, I think this was a good choice. Practically speaking though, my feet were freezing. (Note to self: invest in some peds.)

How are you all dealing with trying to look cute in this cold? It’s so hard! I just want to wear sweater dresses with leggings and Uggs all the time.

Stay warm!
