This weekend was so good..but writing this (Sunday night), I totally already have a case of the Mondays! Mondays and I have such a love/hate relationship- I love them because they’re the beginning of another week…but also hate them because they’re the beginning of another week. Either way, Mondays are always a bit hectic for me, so what better than this cozy cardi?! It’s from my favorite, target, and was such a good deal.
I originally got this cardigan for a work trip to NYC I had last month. Although I didn’t wear it in the big apple, I did keep it and have been wearing it in Houston the last few weeks since it is actually for once. It’s so funny- I always complain that it’s not cold enough in Texas during this time of year, then complain when it’s actually cold. This grey cardigan has for sure come in handy, it’s long enough to wear with denim & I also wore it with a super cute mini skirt the other day and it was adorbs!
Most of the cardis below are under $50!:
Either way.. I for sure have been loving the fact that I am actually getting to wear my winter wardrobe once. I mean..it snowed in Houston last week for crying out loud. That like never happens. Even though it wasn’t like “real snow” to me since I’m from NY. Real snow to me is considered a few inches and lasts longer than a day. The “snow” we had here in the H last week was more like “snow drizzle” (totally just made that up, ha), but either way I will take it. It actually feels like Christmas for once with the “cold weather” and all…and I hate to say that I kind of love it!
It’s finally cold (& rainy) this week in Houston & I actually for the first time ever had a realization that I barely have any sweaters! Since it hardly gets cold in here in Houston, I don’t really get to wear a “winter wardrobe” most of the time. I went out and picked up a few sweaters from H&M last week & got such good deals. I know what you’re thinking…no these were not on a special “Black Friday” sale..they were just really good deals!
Speaking of Black Friday… I totally dragged my mama out with my on Thanksgiving! We stuffed our faces all day, starting the morning off with homemade fruit tarts and ended with Lobster that it was the perfect excuse to go “walk our food off” at the mall. We started at Ulta & we both got some cute stocking stuffers…then headed to check out some of our favs! We had already gone to target, so our basics were already covered. This sweater though..is still a steal and comes in other colors!
One thing I like about this type of monochromatic look is that it’s super simple without much thought. Teal is my current fav color right now & looks really good with grey! I kept my color palette simple with only these two colors & as always, minimal accessories. My shoes were a fav too- mules (of course!). I did get some new shoes too..you’ll have to head over to my IG instastories later this week for those though!
Okay- so we all know comfort is totally my thing. Most days, I can be caught wearing something casual and dressing it up in the easiest way possible! This look is no different- this shirt is pretty much like wearing a big sleep shirt all day! It’s super simple but can be easily dressed up as well. Perfect for running errands, or even a quick lunch with the girls- this look is def one that I wear often.
For this look I went to my go-to over-the-knee suede boots & a waist wrap. Perfect for me, I’m always cold so tying a long shirt tee around my waist always comes in handy. Accessories for this look were minimal (as always), again keeping it simple. A watch for me is a must & I am almost always wearing a pair of studs. This is one of my fav looks for “Houston Fall” aka not cold at all but late enough in the year that I can pretend it’s cold outside by wearing boots (haha!).
As much as I complain about the “fall” here in Houston, I secretly love it. The only thing I wish we had was snow- the holidays just don’t seem the same without it. Also- I wish that the leaves changed colors faster. At least that way, I could “pretend” that winter was coming. Anyways- none of that really happens here in Houston, so I will just have to continue pretending.
One thing I do love, though, is that since I don’t wear my boots as often- they last forever! That doesn’t stop me from getting new ones though, especially when they are on sale! I have rounded up my current fav boots all under $100 below. Even if you currently don’t need any- Christmas is right around the corner and I’m sure someone does!
Hello! I am back from traveling for work all last week. I went to the Big Apple (so much YASS), so took a break from ze blog for the week. It was so nice in New York, but I am just not a cold weather girl anymore. I was ready to be back in the H with my dog, my Starbucks & 70 degrees.
Semi Side Note: So many of you ask why I don’t blog when I am on my work trips & my response is simple- I’m working! I love my job just as much as I love my blog but don’t mix the two for many reasons. Both deserve their own attention, so I plan on keeping it that way.
As beautiful as it was in NY, I was actually happy to come back home! It was cold enough to wear my favorite boots, as well as some fur (again- YAS), but the weather here in Houston is currently beautiful! It’s not cold & not hot, but just somewhere in between. Basically, the weather is perfect.
This week, I totally plan on bringing out some of my go-to sweaters, just for the fun of it. This one is for sure one of my favs, from one my favorite online boutiques. I added it with a denim dress, because that’s what you do in weather like this- mix sweaters & dresses!
This dress I’ve had for a while- it really casual so I kind of keep it that way. I don’t ever wear it with heels & always keep it simple with flats or kicks. This look is perfect for a casual day, or even running errands. Speaking of errands, Thanksgiving literally came so soon! I can’t believe it is already towards the end of 2017! The days, weeks & months seem to go by faster and faster. I was always told this, but now it seems like a true statement! Basically what I’m trying to say is that this year is almost over ya’ll (OMG)! Cray-Cray!
