Today's look

It's still cold out, but, with the help of a sleeping bag coat I was able to wear a skirt today without worrying about freezing to death. Long puffy coats are not flattering but boy do they work!

Boyfriend sweater: The Limited, $55
Dot Skirt: Club Monaco, $125
Tights: Hue, $16
Boots: Naturalizer, $150

Love Me some Blanket Sweater

this sweater was on the expensive side, but I sure do get a lot of wear out of it. It's just so darn cozy. Plus it has good coverage so I can get away with jeggings at work without showing too much booty.

Sweater: Laurie B, $195
Printed Tunic: Urban Outfitters,$58
Jeggings, Juicy Coture, $125
Boots: Charles David, $250

Rocking the Bird Shirt!

So this is my first wear of the Kate Spade bird shirt. Since it's 80 below zero out I layered it with a brown turtleneck, but maybe that looks a little frumpy? I'm going to try it next tucked into a patterned skirt with navy as the main color to do that whole "mixed prints" look. Wish me luck!

Kate Spade Blouse: $265
J Crew Tissue Turtleneck: $40
Banana Republic Skinny Jeans: $80
Nine West Boots: $100ish

Barney Dress is back.

Maybe I look like Barney the Dinosaur, maybe I don't, but I can tell you that this dress is cozy and effortless for winters in New York. Not sure I'll ever get tired of this one!

BCBG sweater dress: $250
Hue tights: $16
Steve Madden boots: $120

New Dress!

This is my new Tracy Reese dress and I LOVE LOVE LOVE it. Her stuff is just fabulous. This was $365, but I've already worn it twice and plan to wear it for New Year's Eve. I also think that if I switch up the belt, this will be a nice summer dress to wear to a wedding or something. The style is a little bit 50s, and when anything has a vintage look it's likely to not go out of style. THIS is a great example of how I should be shopping - a high quality spurge that pays for itself!

Kate Spade I love you!

Just had to stop by and spend my 10% off coupon today and picked up the lovely bird blouse. I've had my eye on the jacket as well, but it's quite pricey. Part of me feels I should go for it - thanks to Chanel tweed jackets never go out of style! - but the other part of me still can't get over the price.
What's a girl to do?

Where have I been??

Would you believe "in a coma"? I wouldn't either. Truth be told it's just been work and the business of life getting in the way of my blogging lately. And I was actually home sick all last week so it would have been pictures of me in mismatched pajamas with greasy hair and a bright red nose.

This outfit was from one of the days when I wasn't deathly ill, and though simple, I like it. Plus I think it makes me look skinny. I've eaten so badly these last few weeks that next year's blog should be about doubling my wardrobe by dropping some pounds! Then all of my pants will fit!

Gap True Straight Pants, $50
Club Monaco Cardigan, $150
French Connection Tee, $35
Alfanai Striped Wedges, $120
