These are a Few of My Favorite Things: 2015

Seriously, where has the year gone?! Let's enjoy what's left of 2015 as much as we can - we'll never be as young as we are now again - gah!

... And on that lovely note, here are some of my closet staples from this past year -

1. J.Crew lexington blazer (sim 3/4 coat). A new-to-me score off of Ebay that's perfectly vintage J.Crew.

2. Loli & the Bean turquoise necklace (sim). A beautiful necklace does not need to be sparkly to make a statement.

3. Milly astor bag. Punchy pink and tiny but useful. How could I refuse this sweet bag?

4. Kate Spade sneakers (sim under $25). Sneaker comfort. Sparkly rhinestones. Got it on super-sale. 'Nough said.

5. Zara cropped trench (sim in orange or black). Light-weight, easy and a fab punch-me-in-the-face color.

6. Old Navy scarf (sim under $24). I don't need to spend a ton of money for a piece I love and wear over and over.

7. Banana Republic pink sleeveless vest (sim in black). I'm not really a pastel person but this vest was a nice surprise purchase.

10. Zara wool coat (sim). Have we seen a color scheme yet? I can't seem to get away from this punchy tomato red hue that I've adored all through the year.

In-Between Holiday Sequins

sequin spots + gingham

I'm definitely trying to take as much advantage as I can of this extended break between holidays and committing myself to sleeping in, not working, not stressing. It's always a bit sad to "see" time flit by so quickly and the cold holiday-less expanse of January and February looms a bit starkly against the merriment of the current season. So take some time for yourselves, ladies, and enjoy the now while you can!

Cable Knit Ivory

For me style-wise, the time between Christmas and New Year's means time off and taking it easy with the outfits. So here's one of my no-need-to-think-about-it outfits with a dabble of details thrown in to make it a bit more interesting. Dependent on the to-do for the day, I'd add on some buckly ankle boots for a bit of shopping and munching with the girls, or flat sneaks for errands and some to-go pizza for dinner in.

Hope you're all having a lovely week and enjoying your time off, ladies!

Almost There ...

How are you ladies surviving the seemingly never-ending plethora of online holiday sales right now? Granted I've succumbed and purchased a few gifts for myself while I was just supposed to be shopping for others, but my eyes and brain have pretty much been glazed over with the amount of "extra % off - buy it now!" promotions going on now. What's the point of retail prices anymore? And retailers are still making money while selling things at 40-50% off! Ugh, someone hide my wallet ...

Bits of Holiday

I don't usually have a ton of use for pretty holiday-esque frocks, so you won't be seeing me overflowing in tulle and garland this December (sorry, not really a black-tie anything here). However I like my bit of sparkle and am not a complete Scrooge, so here's a scan of some of my past holiday-kinda outfits. Just me being me - a bit festive, lot of understated.
