BLACK LACE

I finally found a pair of boyfriend jeans that fit. I have been searching for over a year to find a pair that don’t look like mom jeans.  Being petite, it is so difficult to find that perfect pair of distressed denim (read: bad knee hole placement). These Citizens of Humanity jeans have kind of changed my life.  Well, at least in terms of getting dressed everyday.  I have been pairing them with heels, flats, and my current favorite sandals.

Did you guys notice that killer bracelet and stacked rings I have been wearing? Last week, the folks at Szor let me come and play dress up for the day in their Dallas store. If you are in the DFW area you must stop by their shop on Preston- you will not be dissapointed. They have an amazing collection of unique designers and one-of-a-kind pieces. The Szor’s are not only welcoming but extremely knowledgable about every designer and piece of jewelry they carry in their store.

BASICS

Growing up in the South, I didn’t know it was actually possible for temperatures to drop below freezing. Yes, I used to think 32 degrees was as cold as it could get.  So when I looked at my phone this morning, -12 degrees was a bit shocking to say the least. I am slowly learning these cold temperatures are not going away anytime soon, hence trips to warmer weather are already on the books for the next few months. While we are headed to warmer temps on the weekends, I am still stuck in the cold during the week. So to make it a little more bearable, I am slowly filling my closet with a few  cold-weather essentials.  Hats, gloves, snow boots, and my long down coat may not be the most fashionable, but they sure are keeping me warm. I have found that layering and keeping it simple are my best friends.

My winter style has consisted of lots of basics. Since I wear jeans or J.Crew Minnie Pants to work almost everyday, I have been layering up my basic tees and sweaters with a fun statement necklace. If its a good day, I will even change out my snow boots for a cute pair of heels.

Stay tuned for tomorrow, someone special is making a guest appearance on the blog with his cold- weather essentials.  :)
