Blue, Navy, and Burgundy

Hello, everyone!

It’s another beautiful day here today! It’s been in the 70s this week, and today it’s sunny and in the mid-60s. I love fall days like this!

Navy is a color that is in heavy rotation in my wardrobe because it goes with almost everything. Today, I paired it with this medium blue blouse from Ann Taylor. Outfits like this are so easy to put together: pick a few pieces in the same color family for a polished, put-together, and modern look. I initially reached for nude shoes, but I thought my burgundy Everlane loafers would work great. Because I am so often chilly, I threw on my trusty and well-loved trench coat. The result is an easy outfit for the office or running errands.

Things I’m Loving: October 2015

Hello, everyone!

Here’s this month’s edition of some things I’m loving. I’m in the process of trying to sell and replace some old furniture and buy some things I actually like, so I thought I’d include the dining room pieces I just bought (on sale!!!). The table is supposed to be delivered tomorrow. Yay!

Bauble Bar Slim Bar Pendant

BarNecklace

I’ve worn this necklace several times on the blog, and it continues to stay in heavy rotation. I love how minimalist it is, so it’s a great piece to throw on if you want to wear jewelry but aren’t really in the mood for a huge statement necklace. The chain is a bit short, so I sometimes use a necklace extender when I want it to be longer.

West Elm Crest Bentwood Chair and Mid-century Expandable Dining Table

DiningChair DiningTable

I’m still loving mid-century modern furniture and have been eyeing this table for months. I sold our Ikea dining set a few weeks ago on Craigslist and immediately bought this table. It took me a few days (okay …. two weeks) to pick out the chairs, but I finally decided on these. I love the sleek shape and think they’ll look great with the table. I can’t wait to have people over for dinner soon!

Lou & Grey Signaturesoft Cowl Tunic

LOFTsweatshirt

Because I work from home a few days a week (BEST. THING. EVER.), I wear a lot of loungewear when I’m home. I recently saw this tunic when I was browsing through the Lou & Greg collection at LOFT and fell in love with it. It is incredibly soft and cozy, so it’s been perfect the past few weeks as the temperature has been dropping. The fit is loose, but I prefer loungewear to be roomy. I’m seriously considering buying it in blue also.

Chambray and Houndstooth

Hello, everyone!

While I like to know about trends and embrace some completely, I tend to gravitate toward classic pieces that I can rewear. This chambray shirt, houndstooth skirt, and trench coat are three classic pieces that I’ve had for ages, but I’ve never worn all three together. A pop of pink keeps the outfit fun, and the combination shows how versatile pieces like these can be.
