Neutral Layers

My husband served in the US Army National Guard for 12 years and we were incredibly blessed during that time that he never was deployed for longer than a month.  But, there are so many families who don't see their sons/daughters, husbands/wives, fathers/mothers for a year or longer because they are serving overseas. Especially during the holiday season when it's all about families coming together, I cannot imagine how difficult it must be for those who are celebrating without their loved ones.  

Which is why I am so proud to be sharing with you this special promotion that Stella & Dot is offering now through December 17th (see details below).  Whether you buy a necklace for yourself or for someone else, you have the joy of knowing that you are making the holidays a little bit brighter for those who have sacrificed so much to serve our country.

What I'm wearing:
c/o Pickwick & Weller t-shirt (here), LOFT sweater (similar save or splurge), H&M coat (similar here or here), Forever 21 coated skinnies (similar), RoseGold booties (via eBay; similar here or here), ZARA bag (here), c/o Stella & Dot necklace (here), gifted Etsy ring (here), Dockers aviators (similar)

{If you haven't already, I would love to have your vote in the Send the Trend Challenge - there's no registration required & it takes just a second to click on the heart by my photo.  Thanks for your support!}

i love the way that the sweater's neckline folds out over your coat--so chic! and i can't believe those skinnies are from F21! they look so glam!

That's cool how you put the sweater collar over the coat. It kind of looks like it's part of the coat...So it's like you gave yourself a new coat for free!

absolutely love you how you layered the sweater with the coat; I never think of things like this because the opportunities are rare. Great inspiration.

So smart! I'm having a total "why didn't I think of that" moment... I have a black peacoat I never wear because I think it's boring, mostly because the buttons are black, too. So I've been looking for a new one with gold buttons. Hellooooo!! All I need to do is shop for gold buttons (and a sewing kit).

Thank YOU for switching on the dim little lightbulb in my head.

I absolutely love this look!!
