I hope everyone enjoyed their 4th yesterday! I definitely can get used to having a holiday right in the middle of the work week – can we petition for that every week?

I’ve been veering towards the lighter pastels lately. I love how unassuming the front of this blouse looks but love the surprise crossover detail on the back. With the summer weather, it pairs perfectly with these lace shorts. A very feminine look achieved with the pink and lace details. This top can be easily worn for a more dressy look with pencil skirt or white trousers. If you’re looking for a more conservative look, try slipping this blouse over a white blouse for a fun and unique look. The pairing possibilities are endless!

Lace overlay shorts &nndash; Joie (similar here {70% off} & here)

Pink ankle strap heel – Marc Fisher (similar here & here)

Style: hoop purses

style trend comment

Style: hoop purses | see all the picks at www.shoppingmycloset.com

Theory introduced a new handbag line last fall and the Whitney bag has become quite popular. What’s not to like about a bag that can hold all the essentials and can be worn as either a crossbody or a clutch that dangles off your wrist with its simplistic hoop detail? There have been quite a number of inspired designs as a result of this. I’ve rounded up some great options for you below!

Black hoop handle purse {comes in pink, too!}

Tan leather hoop pouch {4 colors}

Faux-suede ring bag

Red ring convertible crossbody bag

Black embossed ring bag

Brown hoop purse {11 color/styles!}

I can’t believe we’ll be closing out the year in just a few days. I’m soaking up the last few days of the year keeping cozy and comfy. Dark neutrals have been my go-to all week, and I’m sure the remainder of the week won’t be any different. I’ll be ringing in the new year in PJs and warm throw from the comforts of my home, and I wouldn’t have it any other way. What are you plans for rest of 2016?

Only three more days until Christmas! I can’t believe how this holiday sneaked up on me. I just finished shopping and now have a bunch of gifts to wrap and deliver. This look was the perfect outfit to do all my last minute shopping – with the number of people out in the malls, I opted for something that was comfy and practical. With the cold (California-cold :p) weather we’ve had lately, bundling up was also a must. This sweater adds just the right amount to a festive holiday look, especially with the pleated hem and unexpected open back (sadly it’s sold out online, but this one is practically the same one and comes in 2 colors!). For the holiday dinner, I’ll be switching out my jeans for a holiday-ready skirt and some fleece-lined tights. Hope everyone has a happy holiday season!

P.S. Don’t forget to enter my gift card giveaways to Kate Spade and Tory Burch (2 chances to win!)


SHOP THE LOOK:

Pleated hem sweater with open back – Chelsea28 {practically the same sweater here} (similar here {cardigan version} & here)

Grey coat – Theory (similar here & here)

Black jeans – J.Crew (similar here {40% off!} & here)

Laser cut nude heel – Valentino (similar here & 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.
