Winter White...

What I'm wearing...white denim: Jennifer Lopez (similar), sweater: Charlotte Russe, booties: ShoeDazzle, bag: Forever 21 (similar)

Happy first day of winter! I don't know about you guys but I still have some last minute Christmas shopping to do! Only 4 days left! I usually save all of my wrapping for Christmas Eve, but I'm trying to get a jump on it this year and start early. This is definitely the busiest time of year, and even though I love it, I'm looking forward to the new year when things start to quiet down! 



Tailored Layers...

What I'm wearing... zipper ankle denim: H&M (similar), striped long sleeve tee: Target, sweater: Land's End (similar), heels: Charlotte Russe, bag: Lotus Boutique (similar), watch: Movado

Layering a patterned button down or long sleeve tee under a sweater is a great way to add warmth and a little interest to an otherwise basic look. Even just the smallest pop of color or pattern can really elevate an outfit, making it look more tailored and polished. 



Front Tuck...

What I'm wearing...sweater: Charlotte Russe (in different color), denim: Jennifer Lopez, heels: Charlotte Russe (similar), black clutch: Steve Madden (similar), necklace: Ann Taylor Loft, sunnies: Electric

I'm on the shorter side and big cozy sweaters like this tend to overwhelm my frame. This sweater is on the longer side so I tucked it in a little in the front making my legs appear longer, and therefore, making me look taller! This is just a simple styling trick that can change the look of your whole outfit! 



Long Layers...

What I'm wearing...distressed denim: Old Navy (similar), black tank: Target, long cardigan: Forever 21 (similar), open toe booties: Charlotte Russe (similar), bag: Forever 21 (similar), necklace: Forever 21, sunnies: Forever 21 (similar)

I can't tell you enough just how comfortable this long cardigan is! You guys, it feels like I'm wearing a bath robe in public, yet somehow it's socially acceptable. Really, I feel like I'm getting away with something! If you don't have one of these babies in your wardrobe yet, I would seriously think about making it your next addition! It's the perfect layering piece and it instantly elevates any look!

I just love the split side detail and how flowy and comfortable it is! A cozy outfit like this is perfect for running errands and getting my Christmas shopping started. I'm feeling really behind this year! I haven't even ordered my Christmas cards yet you guys! Only 23 more days until Christmas!                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                 -S
