Wish List Wednesday: Sequins

Wish List Wednesday: Sequins

The holidays are cominggggg! My Pinterest feed is full of DIY decor ideas (if only I had a mantel for a winter wonderland scene!) and the gift guides are out in full force (is it just me or does Christmas shopping start earlier every year?).

But before I decorate the Christmas tree or wrap a single present, let’s talk about holiday fashion. I view this time of the year as a excuse to get a little fancy, add some glamour, and wear sequins. To parties, to work, to Thanksgiving dinner (mmmmm). Sequins are the perfect festive touch during these cold months.

Hence the sparkly inspiration for today’s Wish List Wednesday. It’s time to shop and shine.

Make Your Summer Dresses Work For Fall

Make your summer dresses work for fall

Dress: consigned (similar) | Cardigan: Express (similar) | Booties: BP via Nordstrom | Tights: Target | Necklace: c/o TAudrey

Four bags. This weekend I organized my closet and ended up with four garbage bags of clothes to give away and consign. And somehow I still have a closet full of clothes! It was a big wake up call: do I really need SO. MUCH. STUFF?

So I’ve been thinking about trying out the “less is more” approach to fashion: focus on super versatile pieces that can be worn multiple ways and during multiple seasons. Less items, more outfits.

Take this summery dress for example (found at a consignment shop, score!). I’ve always worn it with flats in the summer, but by adding a cozy cardi, tights, and booties, this dress suddenly becomes something I can wear year-round! Success!

Wish List Wednesday: Cold Weather Accessories

November 12, 2014

Cold weather accessories

When it comes to commuting in the fall and winter, fashion often takes a backseat to not freezing your fingers off. I get it, that all-black uniform is easy to throw on and those worn-in fleece gloves are warm, but c’mon ladies, we can do better than fleece accessories!

It is possible to look cute when the temps drop. I’m trying to make it one more winter in my favorite coat, but I’m ready to add cute — and warm! — hats, scarves, and gloves to the mix. Heck, maybe even a pair of ear muffs. Here are a few cold weather accessories to add to all of our wish lists (including yours, reader Robin!).

I’ve been trying out some fun new widgets on the blog — like the one below. Just hover over the products to reveal the retailers and prices, and then click for more details. Let me know how you all like it! #techgeek
