Cowl Neck Sweater Cotton On // White Jeans J. Crew //  Booties Faryl Robin // Purse (Similar) Rebecca Minkoff // Ring Tiffany & Co.

I know wearing white after labor day is basically one of the cardinal rules of fashion, but I can’t help myself- there’s just something that looks so crisp & clean about wearing white in the winter with sweaters & boots. For me it’s super hard to find a pair of white jeans, so once I do I wear them for years and years! I’ve actually had this pair from J. Crew since sophomore year of high school… 5 years and counting!

I paired it with a light grey sweater and some super cute booties by Faryl Robin, and I think it looks extremely effortless but cute. If you have a pair of white jeans that you love, don’t be afraid to break them out during the wintertime with your favorite light-colored sweaters- I especially love wearing them because they’re like a break from all the dark & earthy tones that frequent my outfits in the winter time!

I hope each and all of you have a safe & happy New Year’s Eve!! 2016’s been such an amazing year for me (mostly because of the beginning of my blogging career!), and I’m so excited for what’s to come. I’ll see all of you in 2017 with my New Year’s Resolutions post!! 🙂

The Art of the Denim Jacket

Denim Jacket Madewell // Grey Tee J. Crew // Beaded Necklace (Similar) Bauble Bar

For those of y’all who have been following my blog for a while, you already know how much I cherish my staple denim jacket. I think we can all agree that denim is basically a neutral, so having a denim jacket in your wardrobe is a must! I wear mine in every single season (except summer, because all you Texans out there can agree with me that I’d probably melt into a puddle if I wore a jacket during a Texas summer.)

I got mine at Madewell- it was a little bit of an investment, but I was able to get a pretty hefty discount on it (PSA: they do 20% off for students- holler.) I knew I would wear mine a TON, so I was okay with spending a little more for something that would last me for a long time and that was a good fit. Worth the splurge for sure.

For those of y’all who are on the market for a denim jacket, here are my favorites! Click to shop.

A Week of Style

I’m a huge fan of Outfit of the Week videos on Youtube, so I figured- why not do the same on my blog?! The concept is pretty simple, I’m just going to share with y’all what I’m wearing each day of the week for everything that I’m doing for the week. I’m warning y’all beforehand- there are definitely some days I don’t go all out, so forgive me if some days are skipped due to laziness (aka sweatshirt & Nike days.)

P.S. Go watch Tess Christine‘s OOTW videos on Youtube- I’ve been watching her for years and years and years now & to this day I still get excited when she puts a new video out!

Here we go!

Sunday: This look went up earlier this week on my blog- I actually wore this outfit all day! I didn’t do much on Sunday, it was pretty much a work from home/family time day.

Monday: My first day of my winter class! As much as I’d like to just bum around for the entire month-long break, a girl’s gotta graduate! I know I’ll regret it later, but I figured I might as well take a class over break & relieve some of the stress from my last semester.

P.S. Please excuse the dirty mirror!! I totally forgot to ask someone to take my picture so I had to settle with this!

Tuesday: On this day I had class and then I went straight to work. For those of y’all who don’t know, I work seasonally at Sunglass Hut! Our dress code is pretty flexible, but we’re definitely required to look semi-fancy & at the least presentable.

Wednesday: Class again, unfortunately! At least I didn’t have work this day- hallelujah! I took it easy today & wore something comfy & warm.

Thursday: Akash & I spent this bitterly cold morning shooting some pictures for a blog post! This post is actually up already, check it out here.img_0786

Friday: My friend Tiffany & I spent the day exploring the Deep Ellum district in Dallas. It was unbelievably cold, we didn’t get to take as many pictures as we’d hoped for! I definitely bundled up for this day.img_0985

Saturday: Spent the morning shooting in Downton Plano!

I hope you all enjoyed this kind of post! If y’all liked it let me know and I’ll be sure to do some more 🙂 Christmas is almost here- get excited!!

One Last Holiday Look

Happy Friday friends!! Christmas is 2 days away- can you believe it?! I have one last holiday look for all of you before New Year’s Eve looks start coming around!

This one’s a super easy look that a lot of you could probably easily recreate with what you already have in your closet. I know not everyone’s family Christmas parties entail cocktail dresses and your best stilettos, so I wanted to create a look for y’all that looks put together but not too over-the-top dressy. This top is super cute, and reminds me of a lot of blouses I used to have. Paired with black skinnies and some black block heels, it’s so simple but oh-so-cute!

I hope all of you have a wonderful Christmas holiday spend with your families! Sending love to all of you from Texas 🙂 Merry Christmas everyone!!
