Less is more


I've mentioned before that I don't watch that much TV. Typically, when I do, it's baseball, but in off season, I'm kind of at a loss. Usually I'm just watching whatever the husband has on TV, and when it's not car related, it's usually something along the lines of Criminal Minds, Law & Order, and randomly, Shark Tank. I'm a sucker for a genius idea, and one of the businesses that I bought into was Grace and Lace

I ordered this scarf after watching Shark Tank, although the products they were originally promoting were these leg warmers (which, yes, I've ordered also.) I have a scarf in this color already, but it's more of an indoor scarf. I loved the idea of pairing a chunky knit scarf with rich burgundy, and of course leopard.

Sunnies: Vince Camuto | Earrings: Stella and DotScarf: Grace and Lace (option) | Bag: Tory Burch (budget option, budget option)  | Top: LOFT | Jacket: ExpressJeans: American Eagle (option, option) | Booties: Hinge (option)

I should have saved this outfit for last because it's my favorite outfit I photo'd this week. Which is funny because it really is no fuss, and nothing special. I wore this to brunch on Sunday with the husband. I just threw on a couple of basics, but the pop of color with this moto jacket and booties and then the pattern of this bag make me so happy! My hair just happened to go up in the perfect (and not obnoxiously huge) top knot, which really let the scarf steal the show. Such a simple outfit formula. Sometimes less really is more.

PS I am not being compensated by nor am I affiliated with Grace and Lace - I just liked the product and wanted to highlight it on the blog!

  3. Love this outfit and love that you got it after seeing it on The Shark Tank! I don't watch that show regularly but every now and then if I'm sitting down and it happens to be on, I can easily get hooked in. It's definitely inspiring to see the creative products people come up with and to see them pursuing their dreams!
