I'm pretty squarely in the statement necklace camp. A bold necklace is my go-to accessory move -- with a casual look, to work, and of course for a night out. So this week, I'm sharing with you 3 ways to style a statement necklace. 

First up is an easy going casual outfit. I love to adding a fun necklace to take a laid back look and give it some extra pop.  Since I work in a business casual office, this look is regulated to the weekend.  You'll catch me wearing this to brunch or coffee with friends. For this particular outfit, I couldn't resist adding a few other gold accessories to compliment the necklace. 

But this stone statement is the show stopper.

Swingy floral top, cozy cardigan sweater, and black ankle pants. You've seen this outfit before and you're seeing it again today. While I've been big into wearing neutral colors and simple pieces lately, this top literally screamed at me while I was in Madewell. I resisted at first, but after going home and dreaming about the top, {yes, clothes dream are legit}. I decided to treat myself for my birthday. 

And not that I need compliments to make me feel better about a purchase, but it didn't hurt that this lovely received some serious praise. She's a fan favorite already and it's not even spring.

Let's just say it's been a little bit colder the past few weeks... With temperatures in the teens and single digits, regular outfit photos have been put on a temporary hold. But I have been snapping some quick {aka low res} shots in the morning on my way to work and thought I'd share those with you today.

I've really been loving these outfits and plan to shoot them soon, but until then here's a glimpse of what I've been wearing lately.

Feeling icy today ☄☄☄

I'm slightly embarrassed to say this blue sweater has been sitting in my hamper for over a year. I rarely take things to the dry cleaner and unfortunately for this sweater that meant hanging out in a wrinkled mess at the bottom of my closet for a while. And did I go to the dry cleaner you might be asking? No, but I did finally buy some dryel and the result is that this drapey lovely is back in rotation.

Of course, I couldn't resist adding vest and some mixed metal jewelry. The result, a pretty perfect outfit for a weekend coffee date. When the only layer you need in mid February is a vest, that's my kind of winter.

I don't know if I've ever matched my backdrop as well as I do today. I'm on record as saying as much, but monochromatic dressing is my new thing lately, and these stretchy amazing jeans from Banana are making my flair for neutral dressing all the more easier. I stalked these bad boys for a good while, waiting to nab them during a 40% off promotion. I also saved a few reward dollars and ended up practically stealing them for $10 or something ridiculous. If you're in the market for high-waisted, ankle length, beyond comfortable jeans, I can't recommend these more.

January in Review


I can't believe the first month of 2016 is officially in the books. It's been a pretty busy start to the new year with a few Stella & Dot gigs, travel to Texas, and the usual 9-5 obligations. But it feels good to have the first month in the books. Outside of a few days of snow, it's actually been really pleasant in Ohio. Here's to hoping that trend sticks the rest of winter.

- A week spent in Texas! Between work, sorority, and Stella & Dot it was a whirlwind 7 days. 
- And when you're in Texas, that means In-N-Out. 
- Taking advantage of extra time in Austin and seeing the {nerd alert} Capital Building and LBJ Presidential Library.

Favorite Looks:
January Faves
- Same pants, same shoes, no problem! Paired down closet, you're growing on me.
- Original posts here and here.

Looking Forward To:
- February 22nd. It's National Margarita Day, need I say more?
- Galentine's Day, and by Galentine's Day I mean spending 2/14 on the couch with my favorite pinot. 
- Birthday dinner at Taste of Belgium.
