The crispness in the air has me switching over to warmer clothes and what is better than a turtleneck sweater? To allow the waffle texture to be highlighted, I paired it with a similar color pencil skirt. Paired with gold heels this combination also creates the illusion of a taller silhouette. This is an outfit that will be on repeat for the next few weeks before it gets too cold!

P.S. Don’t forget to enter the Bloomingdale’s gift card giveaway!

As you can see, I’m sporting a new accessory! We’re excited to be expecting out first child in the Fall. Things around here have been a little chaotic of late (aside from the pregnancy) – I apologize for the sporadic posts going on the blog. But, it seems things are starting to settle down a little bit so hopefully, I can resume sharing all my outfits with you!

I wanted to take advantage of being able to still wear my red coat before I put it away until next year. I love the vibrant red color and it’s also a good piece to help transition to the more colorful colors of the warmer weather ahead. In this outfit, I paired it for a work outfit and it is a great contrast against the white and grey. Any winter items you’re still trying to wear before it gets warm?

Sometimes involvement of elaborate pieces or loud patterns are not required to make an outfit stand out. Sometimes, it can be as simple as piecing together the most basic staples of your wardrobe to unite as a spectacular outfit. I started with a black and white theme and tied it together with grey. Cuffing the cardigan with the white breaks up the color and makes it stand out a little bit more. Adding some subtle hints of gold offsets the darker color tones of the look. In my opinion, this outfit is great without even having to try. What do you think?
