Happy Friday!

TGIF! I've left this a little late and need to run out the door, but I hope you enjoy the photos! They are from earlier in the week when I met up with Ollie for lunch downtown. I've actually filmed a "get ready with me" for this look, so make sure to have a look once I've posted it! 

I hope you have an amazing Friday! xoxo

Just Enough

 As you can see -- I really can't get enough of this hoodie. It is so perfect to layer under a lighter jacket for the perfect amount of warmth on a mild winter day. This combo has actually proven to be quite effective; a bunch of layers on top with a mini and tights, finished off with comfy boots, super warm socks, and a thick beanie. It kept me surprisingly warm!

I hope you have an amazing Wednesday! xoxo

Hoodie Love

 Happy Monday! I hope you had an amazing weekend. Ever since the New Year, I feel like my weekends have been zooming by way too quick. I just want to savor and really enjoy them but I feel like there's just so much to do! On Sunday, the weather was really quite mild, so a hooded sweater was all I needed for a little walk to Kits beach. Today is a whole other story, but luckily yesterday wasn't too bad at all.

I had bought this sweater in the after Christmas sales expecting to wear it non-stop and get a ton of use out of it. Then, I completely forgot about it and it sat in my closet for a few weeks before I brought it out yesterday. It is sooo soft and cozy -- I can't believe I hadn't used it before this! It also works as the perfect layer under a coat for those super chilly days (which you'll see in an upcoming post) so now I'm happy that it will finally get the wear that it deserves.

Weekend Casual

1. Prada Sunglasses // 2. Chan Luu Necklace // 3. Marc Jacobs Bag // 4. Whistles Parka // 5. T by Alexander Wang Tee // 6. Current Elliot Jeans // 7. Michael Kors Watch // 8. Acne Pistol Boots

I don't know about you, but ever since the holiday season has ended, all I have wanted to wear is my most comfortable clothes and shoes. More specifically -- I want to be warm and cozy while I'm achieving my resolution of getting outside more on these gloomy days. The most important thing is to have clothes that are warm enough -- like a great parka, relaxed soft jeans and, a kick-ass pair of comfortable boots. A hands-free bag is always a bonus and some awesome sunglasses for that low-lying sun (if you're lucky enough to see it where you live). This weekend, I think I'll be living in a variation of this look and I can't wait!

Oversized & Midi

 This look has been one of my favorites this season and I really can't get enough of it. The proportions are something that I never would have gone for in the past, but now I think it's so much fun. Something about a sock sticking out of a boot and an oversized silhouette has won my heart. I'm absolutely positive this look isn't for everyone (especially since I overheard a work colleague insult me behind my back on it), but sometimes that makes a look extra special in my eye. If anything, I think it's made me wear it more!

The Flares

 Oh what memories I have of the flared jeans. I was literally obsessed with the things and had sooo many pairs of them, always on the hunt for the perfect fit. I actually just gave the majority of them to charity, but I did still manage to hang on to a couple of pairs that I couldn't seem to part with. Once I had them on, I realized how much more flattering and forgiving this cut is. They don't show every single lump and bump like the stretchy skinnies that I always seem to wear lately. I can see why they are making a comeback. Now don't get me wrong, I still loooove my skinnies -- but it's always nice to have options, right?

VIDEO: Sephora Mini Haul / First Impressions

Happy Friday! I hope you've had an amazing week. I don't know about you, but this first week back at it has felt sooo long for me. I don't have too much planned for the weekend, so if you're having a rockin' night in like me, you can entertain yourself with my new makeup video! I got a few giftcards from Sephora for Christmas so I went and splurged on some items that I've wanted for a while but have always seemed a little excessive in price. I also picked up a couple of drugstore items, so don't worry, there's a good mix for all budgets.

I always love watching peoples' true first impressions of makeup they just purchased, so this is exactly what I did in this video. After using the products for a few more days and having it sit on my face all day, I can truly say that I am really happy with all of the products other than the mascara. It was definitely a good haul!
