Holiday Red + Linkup

If you've been reading sometime, you might know that you rarely see color in my outfits. And that couldn't be more true when it comes to any shade of red. Don't get me wrong--red is a really pretty color and well synonymous with the holidays. I just happen not to feel myself in it. I'm sure you have a color that you love on others but can't seem to make it work. But I've learned not to give up on those colors. It's about finding a shade that compliments your skin (for me that's deeper reds). Then, it's about the style. I'm a huge fan of lace! When I saw this top, I went for it. It was a happy medium of my style and still going out of my comfort zone. Naturally, styling this crimson top with my neutrals was a no-brainer.

Now, let's flashback to last year's outfit here. I still can't over those pretty leaves. But anyway, all these pieces are still in my closet. This look came together after I decided to book a 24 hour trip to San Francisco. If there's ever a time to rely on basics, it's when you have to pack lightly.

Thanks so much for linking up with us today and all year! It's hard to believe that this will be the last one this year, but we'll be back in 2017. We loved Karen from Lady in Violet and Rachael from Threads for Thomas looks!

Olive Swing Dress + Linkup

dress c/o Route 32 // moto jacket (so obsessed!) // hat (new addition) // purse 

Did someone just press the gas peddle on December? There's so much going on. If I list it out, I think I might scare myself. But tis' the season for lots of things, right? Even though it's very eventful right now, I have been filling my closet with essential pieces like this faux suede moto jacket (seen here) and this olive swing dress (under $20). It makes it so easy to get out the door. And can we talk about how this dress hides all the food babies? Oh, yes! I type this after eating a donut for dinner. #adulting

Now, let's flashback to last year's look here. I still love all these pieces! I might just repeat this look tonight for a goodbye dinner. It's on a rooftop, so need a warm outfit.
Thank you for linking up with Jessica and I! We truly look forward to seeing your posts and connecting with you! Our picks are Kristina from Kristina Does the Internets and Konstantina from K Meets Style!

Happiest In Grey + Linkup

jacket (tan here) // top (via TJ Maxx) // jeans // flats // purse // hat

My grey game (or obsession) is still going strong. About half of these grey pieces are from last year and half are new buys. The best part is that they go together like a perfect piece to my outfit puzzle. When you keep adding neutrals to your closet, you really can reap the rewards season after season. This would be great running around on the weekends or wine tasting. Yes, this was my wine tasting outfit. You won't regret wearing a dark top (aka hides spilled wine).

Thanks for linking up! our picks are Sheree from Posh Classy Mom and Ashley from Le Stylo Rouge!
