Every year I purchase a leopard sweater, and every year I tell myself, “self, no more.” Well, 2 were cardigans that have been sitting in my closet for awhile and haven’t been touched, so I sold those on eBay and allowed myself one (ha) sweater this year!  This is a pullover (not cardigan) and I really like it. The best part? It’s on sale for $12!!! It comes in 3 colors (brown, grey, and green). I really like the gray/black print also. If a cardigan is more your style, it comes that way also!

Check out other prints of the pullover as well.

Okay. Lets be real. None of us (even Floridians) are wearing t-shirts right now because it’s freezing outside!  But this favorite t-shirt from last summer has returned in camo print and it’s only $22! I scooped it up immediately and didn’t want to wait til summer to share with you guys in case it sells out quickly. I have this t-shirt in both plain olive and wine colors (current colors here and here) and they are truly staples in my closet. They wash well and are great quality also. Fit TTS. There is also a long sleeve version that just went on sale today and I ordered the white color!

It is most certainly sweater weather now — even in southwest Florida! We had lows near 30s the last couple of nights and brrrr, when you have 100% humidity and strong heat for weeks after weeks – that’s a shocker! The sweater in today’s flat lay is one of my Cyber Monday picks — at first I was on the fence about the taupe color, but I really don’t have anything like it in my closet and loved the pairing with my new clutch and earrings. However, it comes in 5 colors in case taupe isn’t your jam either. 🙃

My jeans are a new arrival from Express – I’m in love! ❤️ They are fairly destroyed with the mullet ankle hem, but just what I’ve been looking for. More often then not I throw on a t-shirt, sneakers, and jeans on my days off work and these were exactly what I’ve been wanting. And if you haven’t checked out these fuzzy mules yet – they are only $25 and so, so soft. A trendy buy that I approve of!

Embroidered Skirt:

Lately I’ve been a little burned out from the dark fall colors. I love that gold and red and all things velvet are in right now for the holiday season, but as soon as New Years passes us by I’ll be ready for all the spring colors! This embroidered skirt is a great transition piece. It’s thicker than you’d think and can easily be paired with tights and loafers to keep you warm in the winter. My sweater has the cutest double cuffs on the sleeves and is a light merino wool for easy layering (also comes in a bazillion colors).  My striped button down is old, but those stripes stay in style for decades so I linked several almost identical pieces below. 😋

Nothing terribly exciting here, except I noticed a couple new colors were added in my favorite plaid tunic this season! There is even a fun holiday red plaid color. This tunic is a great length also and I don’t feel like it’s too long for my short frame (however would be perfect for someone about 5’5″ 😝). My booties are also still on sale!

I ordered this pretty ruffle sweater on Cyber Monday and so happy to find it right before the holidays!  It’s merino wool, so if you’re in a temperate climate like me, it will still be comfortable on 60/70 degree days and in the frigid air conditioning. I paired it here with a holiday tartan plaid skirt, but could easily wear it with dark skinny jeans or black pants for work. Sizing is limited, but check back online for sizes to pop back up in stock or check your local store. I linked similar pretty red sweaters below also.

One of my favorite ways to mix up an old outfit is to try new color palettes. I’ve found Pinterest is one of the best places for inspirations and recently I found new ‘pins’ with so many fresh ideas for mixing and matching colors!  The website is called “Your Color Style” where you can make your own palettes, but so so many are already pinned on Pinterest I’m pretty sure it would take months to try them all and never need to create your own.

The picture below is the one I found on Pinterest and was used as inspiration for my flatlay below. How cool is that?!  Maybe I need to step out of my comfort zone, but I would normally would never mix grays, blues, and black in one outfit. Here is the Pinterest link to the color palette below and if you scroll down past the picture, Pinterest automatically shows you a ton of other color palettes created on the same website. You’re welcome! 😀

floral skirt + tank

Bright colors. Floral prints. Jeweled necklaces. Ahh I love this time of year with fashion!  I always go into a “lull” sometime in January and also around June-ish because I’m either anxiously awaiting the pretty spring colors to arrive (like now!) or fall colors in late summer. Right now I’m in spring color heaven and want to scoop all the pretty floral, ruffle, gingham, sparkly, pink things! 💗 Meet exhibit A. This gorgeous kelly green pencil skirt. 😍 I also want to give a shoutout to this structured sleeveless top.  It comes in 9 colors (including striped), is only $15 and perfect for summer since it easily tucks into a pencil skirt and stays put.
