Olive // Yellow

Jeans: LEI (similar here). Sweater: Eddie Bauer. Shoes: Sperry. Purse: Michael Kors.

 I love the color olive. It's an interesting neutral that can be worn with or without a lot of color. I love this belted jacket (similar here) I wore in the past, but today I wanted to go all olive. I think it's important to keep even your casual outfits interesting and I really love a monochromatic look. 

One of my favorite items is a classic pair of Sperry's. They will last you years and over time they mold to your foot. They've proven to be one of the best purchases I've ever made. Check out another look here.

Wrap It Up

Dress: Michael Kors. Shoes: Target (old, similar here). Purse: Ted Baker. Necklace: Gifted (love this one!)
Although I've invested in a few handbags (see this post and this post) from Michael Kors, this is the first dress I've purchased from his clothing designs. I have to say, I will be investing in more. This dress does not wrinkle! For someone that's always on the go, I try as much as I can to simplify my life. I decided to keep the accessories simple, but at the same time a statement piece since I wore the dress in a neutral color. I really think this is going to be a classic and timeless piece.

Top: Forever 21. Sweater: Target. Jeans: Target. Purse: Michael Kors. Boots: Very Volatile (last season, Rag and Bone version here).

I wore this outfit last weekend for a casual Saturday. My family and I went to my new favorite restaurant Jus Mac. They only serve mac n' cheese - which happens to be one of my favorite foods. I really like to keep things casual on the weekends since I have to dress up daily for my job.

I wore this tunic with it's matching skirt a few weeks ago here, but wanted to mix it up with my cocoon sweater. This sweater has been on serious repeat sine I bought it last month - see here, here and here.

A Little Bit of Leopard

I've really strived since the year began to incorporate more neutral outfits into my wardrobe (see previous posts here, here and here). I've always been one to love a bold color and lots of sparkle, but as the years go by I've decided I need to tone a few things down and stick to the classics. A big comfy taupe sweater is the perfect addition to any closet. This one was picked up very inexpensively, but I've worn over and over the past few weeks. I really want to invest in a Cuyana sweater - check it out here. They are all about buying less and finding items you absolutely love.  You can't go wrong with a leopard accessories either. This scarf still stays in the neutral family, but adds interest to an otherwise simple outfit. Finally, I added a yellow satchel for a little pop of color.

First Signs of Spring

Spring is my absolute favorite time of year in Texas. Although we have horrible hot summers, our Springtime is cool and blooming with flowers. I wore this outfit last weekend for errand running on Saturday. These boots have been in full rotation lately (seen here and here), and I'm loving the way they look with layers of clothing. 
Originally, I was afraid of buying a pair of over the knee boots, for fear I wouldn't be tall enough and they would look funny on me. However, after making the plunge, I realized that if they are worn with the right outfit, they can really make your legs look longer. I'm currently scouring sales for a pair of high heeled over-the-knee boots. This is the best time of year to load up on next season's staples.
