Plaid Play


Coat : Cole Hann (on sale!) ~ Sweater Dress : H&M ~ Scarf : Burberry (similar) ~ Boots : Forever 21
Purse : Burberry (similar)~ Gloves : Ralph Lauren ~ Sunglasses : Michael Kors ~ Earrings : Kate Spade

Man does it like to snow in Utah or what?! But at least there is the truth that it is “The Best Snow on Earth” 🙂

To bundle up for this chilly weather, I always decide to layer up. I got this coat for Christmas and it is SO warm. I love the look of it and think that it is so versatile because the giant hood can be used in a sudden snowstorm, or can be wrapped over the shoulders for extra warmth, or even scrunched up like seen in the picture on Nordstrom’s site.

I also have been loving enerything and anything that has to do with Plaid. So I decided to throw on a few of my favorite Burberry accessories to add a bit of pattern to this outfit.


Off to the Emerald City


Jacket : Literature Noir via Flight Boutique ~ Blouse : Ann Taylor ~ Skirt : Custom Made Leather Skirt ~
Belt : Michael Kors ~ Shoes : Aldo ~ Gloves : Ralph Lauren ~ Aviators : Michael Kors ~
Hat : World Market (recent, Plum Version) ~ iPhone Case : Tory Burch ~
Purse : Tory Burch ~ Trunks : Vintage Louis Vuitton

Over the holiday break, I got a lot of time off which was so needed, but I was sad because I wasn’t able to wear any of my Christmas gift right away to work. Well I had an excuse to dress up a bit over one of the weekends and decided to evoke my new favorite trend…emerald jewel tones!

I received this Purse and iPhone case as Christmas gifts, so you know when I saw this green hat while doing errands at World Market in Park City, it was a must buy (especially since it was half off!). I paired the green with a camel color, because I thought it looked very rich with the jewel tones, without competing too much.

What would you pair this jewel tone with?


Oh “Deer”


Undershirt : J.Crew ~ Sweater : Koo De Ker (recent!) ~ Jean Leggings : Forever21 (old) ~
Boots : Nordstrom (old) ~ Necklace : J.Crew ~ Watch : Marc by Marc Jacobs ~
Earrings : Kate Spade ~ Bracelets : J.Crew, Forever21, Groop Dealz ~ Purse : Louis Vuitton ~
Lipstick : NARS Velvet Matte Lip Pencil (Cruella)

So of course I had to jump on te bandwagon of animal print sweaters! I loved this one that I found at a local boutique in Utah, Koo De Ker.

The reason I was SO drawn to this sweater is because the animal head was actually made out of sequins! I love being on trend, but finding something that is unique and not the same one everyone else has. By pairing it with a pop of turquoise from my gingham shirt and necklace, I was ready to head out.


(p.s. – The lipstick I am wearing is the new color I got from my brother for Christmas and I love it!! It goes on matte and stays for so long without drying out my lips. If you like a shinier look, just put a clear lipgloss over the top. I must say it is a good find!)

Blending Into My Surroundings


Shirt : Forever21 ~ Vest : Costco!! (recent) ~ Pants : Old Navy ~
Booties : Spark – local boutique (similar) ~ Sunglasses : Michael Kors ~ Purse : Louis Vuitton ~
Ring : David Yurman ~ Watch Michael Kors ~ Bracelets : J.Crew, Forever21 ~ Necklace : Forever21

This was actually the outfit that I chose to wear for Christmas day! I wanted something more casual than a skirt since I knew I would be going all day, but I also wanted to show off some of my new presents from Christmas (booties and fur vest), so I opted for a Monochromatic winter white look. Of course I had to bring out my favorite pair of white pants. I think they always look good, and if you pair them with the right outfit, they can be worn year-round.

I feel like the shoes and vest were a good contrast to the rest of the outfit by bringing in a slightly different color and making them stand out, without drawing too much attention away from the rest of the pieces.
