Recent Stitch Fix Keepers

Stitch Fix review - Andrew Marc jacket

I’ve received a couple Stitch Fix deliveries since last posting about them so today I’m highlighting the keepers from each (plus sharing another non-Stitch Fix top I’m currently obsessed with). This long sweater was in one of the fixes, but since I’ve already worn it on the blog I decided to spare you the redundancy today.

Teanen Puffer Coat from Andrew Marc ($118)

I was on the hunt for a new winter jacket and fell in love with the burgundy color of this. The collar is thick and padded and the hood is removable.

Alpine Plaid Wrap Scarf by Look by M ($38)

Stitch Fix review - Look by M blanket scarf Stitch Fix review - Look by M blanket scarfThis oversized blanket scarf is impossibly soft and warm. I tend to wear black on black on black outfits all winter so the color of it will be a welcomed addition to my typically boring color coordinating.

Pistola Jeans ($88)

(Not Stitch Fix) Lexi Top by Clayton c/o Shopbop ($62)

OUTFIT DETAILS | Zara jeans – old but similar by ILY Couture ($88) and Rag & Bone ($225 but 15% off with code GOBIG16) // Jeffrey Campbell booties – old but the designer has a similar buckle style in a low-heel bootie and I’m obsessed with this split-ankle bootie as well // H&M jacket – old but this is similarLexi Top by Clayton with boyfriend jeans Lexi Top by Clayton with boyfriend jeans

This has become my go-to shirt for going out for dinner or drinks on the weekend–I love it! I’m totally into the choker trend so the fact that this is an off-the-shoulder top and choker in one made me fall hard for it. Shopbop is actually having a sale right now where the more you spend the more you save so take advantage of it! The sale code is GOBIG16.

Over-the-Knee Boots and Working from Home

Black dress with tan over the knee boots outfit

For my last post with Designer Shoe Warehouse, I’m sharing these taupe over-the-knee boots and a teeny peek of my dismally furnished bedroom “office” nook. Joe and I were subletting before moving here so we were starting completely from scratch with not much more than a bed. In a way it’s overwhelming because it feels like we have a never-ending “to buy” list, but I also like the clean, minimalist start. We’re both super messy (you should see the amount of clothing heaped on my floor after simple tasks like choosing a pair of leggings haha) so owning less is a good thing!  Black dress with tan over the knee boots outfit Black dress with tan over the knee boots outfit

I’m wearing the Epic Over The Knee Boot by Marc Fisher which are perfect for pairing with a casual t-shirt dress like I have on or a sweater dress for chillier days. They’re a looser fit so you can also wear them over jeans. Black dress with tan over the knee boots outfit

This might sound odd, but sometimes it really does help me to be more productive if I take the time to put together a decent outfit before sitting down at my desk to work. Does this happen to anyone else?? I love working from home but when the place you work is also the place you sleep, eat, lounge, do laundry, etc., etc., it can be tempting to slack off–an issue that is exacerbated by the fact I’m typically wearing mismatched socks, old sweatpants with holes in them and one of Joe’s t-shirts (#fashion). If I find myself falling into a slump of unproductively, I’ll put together a comfortable but cute and thoughtful outfit and–as silly as it sounds–I’m more focused on work. I think the outfit change acts as a mental divide between home life and work life. Coffee helps, too. 😉Black dress with tan over the knee boots outfit

If you’re in the market for a pair of over-the-knee or tall boots, check out the huge selection DSW has HERE. They have plenty of styles under $80 and a variety of widths and sizes so that there truly is a boot for everyone. The boots I’m wearing also come in a version with a wider calf if you’re looking for a looser fit.

Alrighty hope hump day is treating you well! I’m about to head out of the city to Pembroke for a two-hour yoga workshop with my girl Yoga by Candace–so pumped! Maybe today will be the day I finally stick crow pose. 😉

Western Booties for Fall

Outfit: Western bootie trend with overalls and a blazerTwo style posts in a row? What the what?? I’ve got a workout for you tomorrow (and a real tough one at that), but before we go back to yoga pants I have my second Designer Shoe Warehouse spotlight: The Western bootie trend. Outfit: Western bootie trend with overalls and a blazer

I like my heels like my peanut butter: chunky. In fact, it boggles my mind I used to walk around in stilettos in college as if it were nothing–how?? That talent and tolerance for pain has long gone (haha). When it came to picking out a pair of western-inspired shoes from my friends at DSW, these Franco Sarto Orena Booties caught my eye. The chunky heel makes for a practical, comfortable bootie that I actually want to wear regularly. And talk about cute! I love the strap detailing. Outfit: Western bootie trend with overalls and a blazer Outfit: Western bootie trend with overalls and a blazer Outfit: Western bootie trend with overalls and a blazer

DSW has a whole section of their site dedicated to the Western shoe trend–so many styles and brands! In my local DSW I’ve seen lots of options, and there’s an even wider selection online with additional sizes and widths. Outfit: Western bootie trend with overalls and a blazerI’m taking the Western trend quite literally with this outfit, pairing the booties with overalls (I’m obsessed with overalls, for the record) and a bandana neck scarf. I then dialed down the “cowgirl” a notch with a white blazer. Granted I don’t have an office job so my perception of business-casual is totally skewed (I literally think anything + a blazer = office appropriate haha), but I think this is a fun casual Friday outfit or at least a good weekend brunch look.Outfit: Western bootie trend with overalls and a blazer Outfit: Western bootie trend with overalls and a blazer

When it comes to heels are you on Team Chunky with me? Or Team Ankle-Breaker? 😉
