Statement Necklace

{outfit post} sweater weather.

by Lauren on December 8, 2014

this is one of my favorite winter outfits. in fact, i recently wore it to a K-State football game, which provided just enough warmth and a pop of purple. i love the layered look especially with a pattern underneath and chunky knit sweater on top. i will be wearing this all holiday season to casual events.

i don’t know about you all but the end of the year is always the busiest for me. whether its at work, home or holiday to-dos; I feel like this part of the year flys by. my husband and i had our first holiday party of the year this weekend, outfit details for what I wore to come.

styling: fit and flare.

by Lauren on June 30, 2014

obsession is an understatement for these dresses that i cannot stop buying. they are a fit and flare style, meaning the are fitted on top but flare out around your waist. i started by buying one from Madewell and then couldn’t help myself by buying another one from Gap this weekend. i think i am obsessed with this look because i can wear them to work but also out for drinks with my girls. a friend and i were sitting at a coffee shop this past weekend discussing how hard it is to find something appropriate for work but cute enough to wear out after no matter if its drinks, dinner or a professional event.

several tips i follow when styling fit and flare dresses:

1. always pair with some sort of necklace since the neckline comes up high. i choose a statement and a monogram for the looks below.

2. don’t feel like you have to wear heels with these dresses. a dressy flat sandal will do.

3. if showing you shoulders is a no-go at work, pair your fit and flare dress with a blazer. for the looks below i would pair with my nude blazer.
