If you’ve been following me for a while, you know that I love adding bows to just about anything. So, when I spotted this sweater, I knew it was going home with me. What’s not to love? Cashmere and an unexpected bow element make this the perfect top. I paired it with jeans and chelsea boots for a casual look. This sweater is so versatile – for a daytime look, it could be easily paired with slacks or a skirt and heels. Consider a dressier look by tucking it into a midi skirt. The pairings are endless!


SHOP THE LOOK:

Grey bow back sweater – Banana Republic (similar here {3 colors} & here)

Black skinny jeans – J.Crew (similar here & here)

Black suede & lizard print bootie – Cole Haan (similar here {under $50} & here)

I’m loving the versatility of this dress to function as its intended form but also as a topper piece like I styled in this look. I opted to forgo the belt to give it a more casual feel. Pairing the olive green color with closet staples like black and white stripes and rich brown boots make it the perfect fall outfit.

Happy Thanksgiving eve, friends! Hoping you all have plans to spend time with friends and family and also, stuff yourself silly!

I have a few family gatherings that I’ll be attending and what better way to stay comfortable and warm than in this beautiful sweater? I love the asymmetrical hem, multi-directional ribbing, and the bold gold buttons (design also comes in a poncho and dress). There’s something unique about the combination of navy and gold which probably is why I love this sweater so much. I paired it with white jeans to offset the navy and black colors but it would also work if paired with a white button down or tee underneath (perhaps, also an asymmetrical one that cuts in the opposing direction).

P.S. Don’t forget to come back during the Thanksgiving holiday stretch – I’ll be posting sales and promo codes for you to take advantage of!

P.P.S Today’s the last day for the $270 Nordstrom giveaway – have you entered?

When looking to invest in a coat, I always ask myself a few questions: (1) how often will I get wear out of this coat (2) does it look similar to something I already own (3) are there multiple ways to style it. This particular coat passed all my questions and here, it now lives in my closet! (PSA: it’s currently on sale (grey & camel here // grey, camel & black here // black & burgundy here)). Living in San Francisco, the temperature stays pretty consistent and doesn’t usually drop below the 50s during the fall and winter seasons, so this coat provides the perfect amount of warmth. The best part is the reversibility of the coat – you can wear it with the charcoal grey or the heather grey. I love the option of wearing with the waterfall front effect (as styled) or being able to button up the fronts to create a more traditional wrap coat look. And, with the grey colors, this coat will pair well with practically any color outfit so I’ll be getting a lot of use out of it.

P.S. Have you entered the Nordstrom giveaway?

I’ve been looking for an oversized sweater to add to my wardrobe and this one fit the bill. The soft grey color will be perfect to match with practically everything in my fall/winter wardrobe. The longer sleeve length is great for a makeshift glove. Best of all, the wool is woven in a way that won’t pill and it’s not itchy! I styled the sweater for a casual look but can easily transition it to a daytime/office look without looking frumpy. I would simply layer it with a white button down and a midi length pencil skirt to balance out the top.

Update: the sweater is already on sale and will be an additional 50% off!

Ankle crop distressed jeans – AG {on sale!} (similar style here & here {under $50})

White sneakers – Adidas (similar style here {50% off} & here)
