Modern Prep

My favorite part of the week is when my husband & I get a chance to grab a late brunch or coffee together - sometimes we dress up for no reason and other times we go right after our "workout date" at the gym.  This week, I decided on these slightly preppy layers with a modern edge - in case you're wondering, my plan is to forgo tights for as long as I can possibly stand it since I'll be forced to wear them for the next 4+ months.  But, you could also easily swap out the skirt for skinny jeans if it's too chilly where you live.  

What I'm wearing:
J. Crew Factory sweater (31% off + free shipping w/ code CANDYPLS - I'm wearing an XS), 
Joe Fresh shirt (15% off w/ code PUMPKIN - I'm wearing a Small), 
Zara skirt (similar under $25under $50 or under $70), J. Crew socksc/o JustFab Taya boots
NastyGal satchel (similar), Sole Society ring, Bracelets: J. Crew (similar), 
Madewell (similar), J. Crew & Vintage (similar), Ray-Ban wayfarers

Sleeping Beauty

I love this time of year because it involves turning on our fireplace, snuggling under warm blankets and multiple cups of coffee (this recipe is my current favorite).  Our weather is dipping down into the 30's later this week so I decided it was finally time to swap out my lightweight pajamas & loungewear for some more substantial pieces. These options below are affordably priced and would be perfect for keeping cozy all winter long.

Navy Pinstripe

It seems like every time my hair finally reaches a decent past-shoulder length, I start getting the urge to chop it off again.  I've been going back & forth for weeks now and I have yet to decide what to do with it.  So, my solution for now is to simply tuck my ends into an oversized blanket scarf & pretend like it's short for the time being.   As a side note, I'm pretty sure this will be the last time I can wear light layers without a coat - it's getting downright frigid here in NY (they are forecasting snow for this weekend)! 

What I'm wearing:
Forever 21 shirt, c/o LuLu*s vest (similar), Forever 21 scarf, Mossimo jeans, H&M loafers
H&M bag (similar here or here), c/o BaubleBar earrings, Rings: H&M (similar) & c/o ShopLately (similar), 
Michael Kors watch (similar), Bracelets: Vintage & LOFT
