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.http://www.threeheelclicks.com/2015/02/in-navy.html?m=1

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.

Shirt: Vintage (also love this one). Skirt: DIY (great tutorial for a similar one here). Shoes: Charles by Charles David. Purse: Buddha Bags. Sunnies: Just Cavalli.

Have you ever had a DIY project that just turned out perfect?  This skirt was one of those projects for me. I've worn it in several occasions, including here. But, this monochromatic look really does it justice. In my effort this year to wear more neutrals, the texture is what sets this outfit apart. The metallic sheen on the top with the soft tulle makes this such a glamorous outfit. I actually made this skirt by cutting off the top of a dress and turning down the waste band, however A Pair and a Spare has a great tutorial listed in the links above. She has some of the best DIY tutorials on the web with excellent directions and clean looking pictures. I also highly recommend her book!
