Work Appropriate Leather

Top- Loft, Skirt- Loft, Booties- Nordstrom (similar), Coat- Forever 21, Tights- Target, Necklace- Anthropologie, Bag- Forever 21

I rarely shop at Loft. I think its a combination of the prices being a little too high than I like to pay, the shipping fee being $9, and that when they have their big end of season sales (which, I will admit, are awesome), the items become final sale. I have placed too many online orders and either had to return the item because it didn't fit and lose my $9 shipping charge, or I ordered something final sale that didn't fit and I couldn't do anything about it. Maybe I'm just picking the wrong sizes, but I am usually pretty good at doing that when placing online orders. Or maybe its just bad luck.

Anyway, I went to Loft with my mom after Christmas and was able to get both this top and skirt for great prices with the 50% off promo (the skirt was $18!). Then I saw the additional 60% off sale email come through inbox and I took another look. I went to a different store that had a ton of sale inventory and came out with three more great items at unbelievable prices! I guess the moral of the story is that I need to stop ordering online and go to the store when I want to shop there.

I have one more short story to tell today, and that is about this stunner of a statement necklace! My boyfriend picked this out for my for Christmas and I love it. The next time I looked at my Pinterest wishlist board, I realized I had pinned the same one a few weeks before! And no, he doesn't look at my Pinterest, he is just THAT good at picking out things that I like. I'm lucky :)

Jeweled Beanie

Coat- H&M (similar under $40), Sweater- Old Navy, Jeans- c/o Aeropostale (similar under $20), Boots- Calvin Klein
Beanie- Target, Fur Collar- Charming Charlies (similar), Gloves- Target (similar), Bag- Rebecca Minkoff

Am I the only one who gets excited to see 30 and 40 degree days when I check my weather app? I have been thrilled that we have had some really cold days in Texas so that I can bundle up in lots of layers! It isn't often that I can get away with wear a hat, faux fur collar, coat, and gloves, so when the opportunity arises, I have to soak it up. I chose this outfit based around my rhinestone beanie and faux fur collar (that I found at Charming Charlie's for $5 might I add). My pink coat was screaming for the addition of the faux fur, and I love the mix of light pink, cream and gray. I couldn't resist adding the beanie on top, because it was cold, and because it's cute! I can't wait to style more cold weather looks in the weeks ahead.

My 2014 In Outfits

I thought an outfit roundup would be a fun post to round out my blogging year! These are all of the outfits I blogged in 2014. Looking back over the year, I am so much happier with the outfits I chose to feature since they were ones that I actually wore, rather than ones I just styled for the blog (okay, minus the one with the sequin dress and fur coat, that was just for fun!). These are a true representation of what I wear for work and play in my everyday life! You can click each picture above to go to the original post.

Happy New Year, everyone! Hope it's fantastic.
