Random roundup

I gotta say, I'm glad you guys like these roundups so much because it definitely makes it a lot easier on life to "only" photograph 4 outfits for the blog each week vs. 5. Really the best solution would be if the husband would just let me quit my day job so I had all the time in the world to invest in this little corner of the interweb! Ha - that may take some time to convince him, so until then - here's your random roundup for the week! I will only be linking to the items that are still available, unless I have a good option handy!

Necklace: Kate Spade | Vest: JCrew (Factory version here) | Sweater: JCrew Factory | Top: JCrew Factory | Skirt: Express | Fleece Lined Tights: TargetBooties: Cole Haan

I really love this vest, you guys. It's one of those pieces that I wasn't sure if I should take the plunge on, but am glad that I did. I also love me a good mini skirt in the winter. Maybe even more so than the warmer months! Oh, and these fleece lined tights. You need them. The softest most comfy pair of tights ever, and I love how super opaque they are!

Watch: Kate SpadeNecklace: Stella and Dot (gifted) | Blazer: ExpressTop: ExpressBracelets: H&M (gifted)Bottoms: ExpressBooties: Hinge

This is what I call my Gina outfit. She's a master at styling her olive cargo skinnies, as evidenced by this post here. I'm not sure why I never would have come up with this classic combination on my own, but I adore the way it came out.

Jacket: Express (option) | Necklace: Express | Top: ExpressSkirt: ExpressFleece Lined Tights: Target | Booties: Vince Camuto

This ruched skirt is a fan favorite. Don't believe me? See it on Gina, Rachelle, and Noelle. It all started with Rachelle and kind of had a domino effect from there. That tends to happen with this circle of ladies. And it's awesome because that means 4 times the fashion inspiration when it comes to styling the same pieces! 

Scarf: Express | Vest: JCrewSweater: Target | Top: Express | Leggings: ZellaShoes: Ash

I feel like this is just a couple bars higher than leaving the house in pajamas. Ok, perhaps that is being a bit dramatic. But I had to wake up and pick the husband up Saturday morning at the airport, and I thought about just going in jammies and Ugg boots, but realized he'd probably be hungry and want to go to brunch. So, I reached for comfy things that were still acceptable to be seen wearing in public. And in a selfie. Glad you guys keep me accountable!

The husband had to take a picture of my hair this day because he said it was ridiculously big. Haha! #sorrynotsorry One of these days I will do a tutorial for you guys. It's what I call my prom updo, which is a bit different than my regular top knot. And yes, I love this vest. And the scarf. Together, they are unstoppable.

And here's a quick recap of all the remixes since last week. Three weeks into the challenge, and I'm still feeling good about it. And it's quite gratifying to see all of the looks I'm able to create with my limited stock of pieces. Kind of excited to see this through!



  1. oooh new inspo for the ruched skirt, I have not worn it with a button down yet. I think this is my favorite outfit today, but I would pretty much wear all of these.


  2. Girl how do you do it? Every outfit is perfect, I really love seeing all the remixes too!

    Have a great weekend.

    pumps and push-ups

  3. So much awesome. Once again, loving how you showed the repeat pieces together. I also love how you and I both referenced our circle of inspiration on different items and combinations. It's so fun to have a great group of girls to draw inspiration from. :) And dangit, I need to get out my skirts and wear them again. I have been slacking in that department lately.
