Black Plaid with a Twinkle

You know me an sparkly things, and my current "ooh shiny" obsession is the brooch. Since I got this pretty flowered piece from Zara a few weeks back, I've become slightly fixated and I've already added a few more to my collection (thank you, Ebay and Etsy, for your endless array of pretty twinkly options for cheap). Sure I'm not super-keen on poking holes in all my clothes so I've got to be careful, but I find that the brooch is an easy way to add some bang to an outfit without being borderline over-dressed the way a huge statement necklace can sometimes be.

If you've seen some of my recent casual outfit posts, you'll likely notice that I've been wearing a bit of a uniform: puffer vest, patterned shirt, jeans and ankle boots. It's an easy peasy formula of an outfit to put together, warm enough to get through most Southeastern winter days and it helps me look like I tried without having to try. And now that I have like a half a dozen of these awesome vests (J.Crew, I blame you), I've got to get my winter's wear out of them, so I'll be pulling these out on the weekly!

A Bright Shade of Pink


I'm in the middle of some major meh-looking hair time lately - been trying to grow it out length-wise and my stylist has been talking me into doing pseudo ombre highlights where she only touches up the bottom half of my hair that I kind of like, kind of meh about. Add to that some questionable photo lighting and my recent aversion (laziness) to a  curling iron and we've got some could-be-better-but-I've-gone-a-bit-styling-lazy hair. So ... let's concentrate on some of this punchy magenta hue instead, shall we?

Neutral with Sparkles

neutral + spotted

If I could get by in sweatshirts and jeans everyday, I'd love to be able to do that. And this look is exactly it, but dressed up just a tad so I can step out without looking like I'm studying for finals or am out on a trip to Lowe's for more screws. So I'm secretly comfort slumming but looking like I'm at least trying.
