Lightweight Cape

Hello, everyone!

I’ve been trying for the past year or so to embrace the cape/poncho trend. I’ve bought at least six and have returned them all because they just didn’t look right. I thought I’d give it one more chance, so I bought this one in late September. It’s super lightweight, which might be what makes it work for me. The other ones I’ve bought (and returned) were all pretty heavy, and they overwhelmed my frame. And the fringe on this one is fun!

Silky Jogger Pants

Hello, everyone!

I know I’ve been missing some posts recently. I’m still trying to find balance with my full-time job and my Pure Barre teaching schedule. For the next few weeks, at least through the holidays, I’m going to post only twice a week instead of my regular three times. I’ll do one outfit post and one series post. After the new year, I hope to return to three posts a week. Fingers crossed!

I’ve featured jogger pants on the blog before (here and here), but they’ve been casual and cozy. These silky jogger pants caught my eye at LOFT several weeks ago. I love the red/rust color, and the style and fabric are the perfect balance of chic but not overly dressy. I went with a neutral shoe and sweater, but added a colorful scarf for some more color and pattern.

Long Sweater Vest

Hello, everyone!

This post is late for this week. Eeeeek! I started teaching Pure Barre a few weeks ago and am trying to adjust to having a teaching schedule in addition to my full-time job. I’ll do my best to stick to blogging, but my posting schedule might not be regular over the next few weeks.

It’s been chillier the past few days, so I’m pulling out all my sweaters. I bought this sweater vest several months ago and am glad that I’m finally able to wear it. It’s such a cute and easy topper to throw on to add an extra layer and pattern. I decided to wear it as part of a casual outfit here, but I think it would work great paired with skinny pants to wear to work. I might also trying belting it to see how that looks.
