You Me Oui

Skirt: Forever 21 / Tee: Old Navy / Shoes: Make Me Chic / Clutch: Sheinside / Necklace: JCrew / Bracelets: JCrew, Alex & Ani / Sunnies: Ann Taylor 

This entire summer I spent looking for the perfect black maxi skirt, I searched high and low for one and finally ended up finding this lover at Forever 21, I mean totally figures. All that looking and it was right under my nose the whole time. I love searching on forever 21.com they it is much easier to sort through than the stores are some time, but like I have told you all before, one of my first jobs and reason I am who I am now is because I worked at Forever 21 so I know a little bit of the method to their madness in store. As you all have I am sure noticed over the past few weeks I am obsessed with maxi skirts, they are perfect, well all the time, but more so in the transition to fall, and these full maxi skirts just give you the best movement and make you feel like such a princess. 

I went on a work trip last year around this time to NYC and had the chance to tour Glamour Magazine aka the Conde Nast building, yea I died, this girl, whom I still have no idea who it was, walked in wearing a knee length cream leather quilted midi skirt, it was an amazing outfit, she paired it with sky high pumps and a grey sweater I think, mind you it was like snowing and nasty outside and we showed up in sneakers, how she got there and did not look as disheveled as we did blows my mind! Anyways, my point was midi length skirts are the bomb.com and I still to this day, almost 1 year later die over that perfect outfit, it is amazing how amazing outfits can get burned into your memory and you can swoon over them for a whole year or longer.. Love you girl that I don't know and want to borrow your skirt! Please tell me you got it at ASOS and that I can afford it =)

A Leather Dress & Plaid Button Down

Dress: Willow & Clay via LeTote / Shirt: Forever 21 (old) / Clutch: TJMaxx / Shoes: Ann Taylor / Sunglasses: Vintage 

This weekend was my 26th birthday and I got home from Germany on Thursday and was in serious need of a very long nap. My parents took my husband and I out to an amazing meal on Sunday and my hubby got me flowers and a fit bit! More to come on that later! I so ready for the holiday week this week. 

I loved this leather dress from Willow & Clay, and since the weather has been quite chilly lately I am glad I was able to come up with a way to wear it. I paired it with this long sleeve plaid shirt under it and am loving the look. I love the juxtaposition of the casual red plaid and the a line leather dress.  I think it is important to think of ways you can wear pieces in multiple seasons, this is a great example, from summer into fall.

Leopard Is The New Black

Skirt: Old Navy / Long Sleeve: Nordstrom (old) / Clutch: Free People (came inside a tote) / Heels: Ivanka Trump via Nordstrom / Necklace: Nordstrom

If you know me well, or if you have been following along with my blog you know a little bit about my obsession with gold, sparkles and leopard. I do not dub myself a girly girl whatsoever but these three things are all a (sick) obsession for me. I think leopard is honestly a neutral, and over time it is becoming more and more accepted as a neutral by a broader range of people. I also think it has a lot to do with the way you wear leopard, I am in love with this skirt and its from Old Navy so you know it was an amazing price, it is such a staple and so perfect for anything from a date night to a day at the office. You can easily make this simple pencil skirt into so many different looks, add a moto jacket for a more aggressive look, or add a red blazer for a little pop. I added this statement necklace and a bold lip to keep it simple but chic. It is amazing how such a small pop of color on your lips can totally transform any look. Try it with your next outfit.

Ready for the Holidays // Outfit #2 The LBD

Dress: Zara / Heels: Make Me Chic / Earrings: Sheinside / Clutch: Vintage

This second holiday look I put together is much more laid back, chic and simple compared to the amazing sequin pants from last week. There is nothing more chic than an LBD. I am really loving the look of long sleeve dresses right now, I think it is a really great look that makes everyone look a little bit "longer". I am also turning onto midi length dresses and skirts as you saw earlier this week as well, I thought for a while they would make me look really short but as I have said . This dress from Zara is such amazing knit material, and was only $49, it is totally a dress you can wear all the time you can add a statement necklace, or add a jacket; the possibilities are endless. I think it is very important to invest in a LBD for each season that you are totally in love with and fits you like a glove, it is a great go to that you know you can reach for in your closet for any event. I have a few more holiday looks coming for you, ones that are perfect for any and every holiday event you may be making an appearance at this season.

Aztec Sweater

Sweater: Windsor Store c/o / Jeans: American Eagle / Tee: Forever 21 / Heels: Sam Edelman / Mug: VistaPrint / Sunglasses: Ray Ban / Dog: Hero <3 This cardi is a show stopper and is going to be a serious favorite of mine this coming winter. Its perfect to wear with a comfortable and causal outfit for lounging in the backyard like this one, but can also function as a super lax Sunday lazy day sweater when your sitting in front of the TV . As you know I am not tall and this cardi is the perfect length for me. The quality is really on par in relation to the price. I am really impressed with Windsor lately, they are blowing me away, and I always want one of everything when I am on their website, its quite dangerous to be honest. My next go to outfit will include brown booties, blue jeans and a white tee shirt, another perfect combo for this fabulous tribal print cardi. How much of a cutie is our new rescue dog Hero! We are in serious love with him, he is such a big lover and we are so lucky to have found him and made him part of our family! There are hundreds of thousands of animals out there needing homes, please look into adopting animals! We have adopted both of our animals and would not trade them for the world! <3 Andy & Hero
