The Varsity Sweater

I love that the varsity sweater is popping up everywhere right now. The preppy style is so much fun to play with and dress up and down. I found this particular sweater during one of my recent online shopping sprees - on sale for only $10 at H&M :) I've included it in my shop-my-look links above in case you enjoy online shopping as much as I do. 

On another note, I can't tell you how welcome the long weekend was. Working in advertising is lots of fun, but there's always work to be done so it was nice getting a mini-break before diving back in. This weekend involved family time, Modern Family marathons, and fun+productive errands (let's be honest, it's hard to consider exchanging items at Sephora an errand). Hope you all had a relaxing long weekend!

Hats Off

H&M Hat - H&M Top - PacSun Jeans (similar here) - Forever21 Shoes (similar here) - Michael Kors Watch - Rimmel Lasting Finish by Kate Moss Lipstick #09 

This rainy weekend was full of pampering, relaxing, online shopping, and (believe it or not) football. I spent Saturday morning at the Chateau Marmont for the Colgate Optic White Beauty Bar. Priv was there getting everyone Golden Globes ready with their hair, makeup, manicure, and massage stations and it was lots of fun! I went with black glitter nails, which is not something I normally do, and I absolutely love them. After the Beauty Bar, Matthew and I headed out to watch football with friends at a Seahawks bar where we were pretty much the only two people there NOT wearing Seahawks gear ;) 

 And let's take a minute to talk about my online shopping problem. I received this hat and top over the weekend and could hardly wait to wear them. I've been on the hunt for the perfect wide-brimmed hat and I think it's safe to say I've finally found it -- neutral and easy to take from day to night. I may have made some more online purchases that will make their way onto the blog soon!

Back to the Basics

Polette Glasses (c/o) - Heather by Bordeaux Jacket - H&M Top - H&M Jeans - Hunter Boots - Michael Kors Watch - Tiffany & Co Bracelet - NYX Soft Matte Lip Cream in 'Istanbul'

Happy New Year lovelies!
Over the weekend, my boyfriend Matthew and I finally got around to running some errands we had been putting off and I decided to go with all-neutral pieces for the busy day. My sister gave me this ultra-soft jacket and it's quickly become a favorite of mine. I paired it with a few other favorite basics -- white jeans and my Hunter boots. I've had my eye on the Hunters for a while now and Matthew's mom surprised me with this pair for Christmas. I look for any occasion to wear them, rain or shine!

I topped the look off with these stunning glasses I received from French company, Polette. I adore these frames -- they're so easy to wear with just about any look and for all occasions, from a day of shopping to date night to work. Even if I didn't need glasses, I would totally rock these frames prescription-less for no other reason than to make a statement. The good news for you? I'll be announcing an exciting giveaway with Polette later this week. Stay tuned...
