Random roundup

I've got another handful of random outfits that didn't formally make the blog. It's always nice to end the week with these! I honestly like seeing everything all together in one post just as much as you all seem to! You can see all my other random roundups here, and/or you can follow me on Instagram for real time updates. As always, I'm only linking to items that are still available.

Cardigan: Old Navy | Scarf: Marc Jacobs Target/NM Collabo | Tank: Bailey 44 | Leggings: Express | Booties: Cole Haan

This is the same outfit I posted here, just with a couple of tweaks. I felt like the scarf was a better accessory than the long necklace, and anytime I wear a thicker scarf like this, I prefer my hair up vs. down. And after I had seen the photos from the original post, I decided to just let the leggings extend past my heel (instead of folding them under) so there is less bunching at the top of my booties. These are the definite benefits of taking outfit photos ahead of time - being able to make adjustments.

The obligatory hotel outfit selfie. This was in Jersey a couple of weeks ago and I was able to meet my friend, Renata, for dinner. We ended up eating at Zinburger, which was my first time. It was pretty amazing and tasty, and  half price on bottles of wine doesn't hurt things either! As I was packing that morning, I had no idea what I felt like wearing for dinner. This top has been in my closet for about 3 years now, and I figured you can never fail with sequins and destroyed jeans!

Blazer: ExpressTop: Express | Dress: Express | Wedge Booties: Sam Edelman

This dress is great for work travel because it doesn't wrinkle and it's perfect for layering. If you'd like to go back in the More Pieces of Me time capsule, you can see it with a print scarf and cropped blazer here. When it comes to work travel - I definitely try not to reinvent the wheel if at all possible. There are certain foolproof pieces I know will always work like this dress.

And a blanket scarf is definitely foolproof, especially for travel. This was at 4:30am on my way to the airport. The light denim jacket plus this freakishly warm scarf were perfect to keep me warm outside, but still comfortable on the plane. This BP top was a great rec from Gina - so much so, that now I own two colors!

Necklace: Express | Jacket: Pulse | Plaid Top: Express | Top: BPBottoms: ExpressBooties: Vince Camuto

You guys. The Garth Brooks concert was amazing!! I wore this to see him, which ended up being pretty perfect for scream singing and dancing on my feet all night! I had originally looked for tickets when they first went on sale, but they were ridiculously expensive for not that great of seats. Two days before the concert, I decided to check again for giggles, and found seats two rows off the floor. That's how I've been able to score all my good seats - waiting until the last minute. The last time I saw him was in the late 90s, and he was just as amazing as I remembered! Definitely recommend seeing him if you can!

I woke up this morning feeling like wearing a sweater over a button up. I took inventory of all my sweaters and discovered this heart sweater from Old Navy. I honestly forgot I had this, and I think the last time I wore it was October 31, 2012. How the heck do I remember that? Oh, just my photo diary called Tumblr. I found this pic here. Glad the sweater is still relevant today, and it is definitely the perfect canvas for layering. And yes, a part of me is pretty geeked that something two years old still fits me! 

Vest: JCrew Factory | Necklace: Express | Sweater: Gap | Top: ExpressLeggings: Pulse | Boots: Frye

Speaking of sweaters I forgot I had! I love this sweater, and here's another gem from my archives of me wearing it here. (BTW, if you click that link - I LOLd at my arm party. Holy whoa.) Anyway - I warned you guys that I had a vest obsession. I also warned you guys that I loved layers. This outfit is everything that I love about winter, down to my favorite Frye boots.

Lots of top knots in these photos! Which just means lots of running late and sleepy mornings and laziness to do my hair. I don't know about you, but I can't wait for the little holiday break so I can recharge and start fresh! Have a great weekend!

  5. Yay!! Outfit recaps!! These are pretty much my favorite posts now. I also loved all the link-backs to old posts to see how far your style (and photos) have evolved. I'm glad you are loving the striped tees as much as me and it's fun to see how you wear them in entirely different ways.

  6. Adore all of these!! Again, I must say, you are the master of layering!! I'd love to re-created the last look with my utility vest...I'll have to think through what pieces I have to make that work! Did you order your striped tunic that Gina recommended online or in-store?
