Tuxedo Top


Let me start by thanking you all for the many Birthday wishes you sent my way yesterday! It’s hard to not feel special with all of that love coming my way!

Now, moving on to the outfit. It’s amazing the marketing that blogs do for the economy in general. I never noticed this top until I saw it on Julia of Gal Meets Glam here. It looked so darn cute on her, so I waited for a sale and grabbed it. I often find myself buying the same colors and styles, but this was unlike anything else in my closet. Well, maybe not entirely unlike anything, being that it’s made out of sweatshirt material, and I surely have those in my closet! It’s comfortable yet polished, can be dressed up, down or in between. The belt came from LOFT and in addition to the coat, I love the touch of color and bling it brings to the outfit. I’m now tempted to buy pants in this color, it’s just so pretty.




I’m so glad I bought this scarf early on in the fall. It’s now sold out and has been all over the blog-world more than any other item I’ve seen! Who knew! I first wore it here when there was merely a chill in the air, but I sure appreciate it now that winter weather is in full swing!


Details: JCrew coat / Zara scarf (sold out but option here) / JCrew top / LOFT belt / JBrand pants / Seychelles boots via Gilt (similar) / Macy’s necklace / LOFT bracelet
