Style

Sweater: Forever21, Pencil Skirt: Nordstrom Rack (by the brand Philosophy), Shoe: Nine West (Tatiana), Bag: Target, Watch: Michael Kors

This was the perfect outfit for my family’s Thanksgiving dinner, considering there was going to be a lot of eating involved. I wanted to look put together but still be  comfortable. I’ve had this sweater in by closet for quite a while. Never wore it because I felt the color was a bit much for me; I generally stick to neutrals. I decided to try something different, which I actually ended up liking. The purple shoe, which by the way is the only shoe I own that is not black or nude, surprisingly complements the mustard yellow sweater.JNR_0031-1201711241106095927

Black & Carmel

Coat: Nordstrom Rack | Top & Bag: H&M | Skirt: Forever21 | Boots: Target

Fall is my favorite season of the year, so it is only fitting that my first look is fall inspired.

For this look, I paired this Carmel color suede skirt with a high neck sweater (which is actually a bodysuit). I was going out to dinner, so I went with the thigh high boots, I added the coat for when the temperature drops later in the evening.

If you work in a creative, casual, or relaxed work environment, this is a trendy, yet appropriate look for work.

If you are like me, and you prefer a more formal yet comfortable look. Simply add a black opaque tight, and switch the thigh high boots for an ankle boots or flats and you are ready to take on the day in style.

Striped Joggers Styled Four Ways

When it comes to trends, I tread carefully. I only follow trends that I feel are going to stick around (i.e. the military style blazer, bomber jacket, skinny jeans, single strap sandal) are all trends that have stuck around and are now consider wardrobe staples. The Jogger pants in my opinion, happen to be one of those trend. I love the versatility it provides. With some creativity the possibilities are endless. Here are some of my favorite way I like to style joggers.

I scored this strip Jogger on sale from Nordstrom Rack. It actually had an elastic band on the ankle, which I was not feeling, but I loved the red and white strip so I got it anyways and cut it into a cropped style.
