Here is the new addition of What I've Been Wearing this week. It is a recap of all the outfits I have posted about on Instagram over the past week.
Hat: Shein I Dress: Target
This is one of my favorite pictures I have taken recently. I love this beret hat. The pearls are so pretty and add a cute little extra bit of glamour. It is only $7! The quality of it is superb for only $7!! This dress I just love. It is from Target by the Prologue brand and the first item I have bought from this brand. It is so comfy and loose. It is comfortable alone but I also like the addition of a belt to it for an added bit of color and take away some of its looseness. I just felt happy wearing all of this. Plus, my hair and makeup both turned out the way I wanted so that added a bit of extra joy to my day!
Sweater: JCrew Factory I Flannel: Land's End
This has been my mood lately: plaid. I was never big into plaid but lately I have noticed a bit of evolving in my style. I still love to wear color and have a very colorful closet but I have also been interested in a more relaxed style and add a bit of class and prep you can say. I have been adding new stores in the mix such as Land's End, JCrew and JCrew Factory which are one's I never stepped foot in before. I have been found appreciation for lots of layers in the winter and making sure I have stocked some basic and neutral colors like navy, browns, and grays. I have been wearing less black. I love wearing dresses and skirts, have found an appreciation for a nice flat or loafer vs a heel but if I wear a heel it is chunky and more comfy. I still want affordable style but I have been trying to get less "cheap" with things and look for overall quality because quality sweaters are timeless and will last. I notice a longer fit and quality of this rather than something falling apart, shrinking, or looking shoddy after a couple washes. I guess now that I am in my 30s, a professional in my field, and a mom I am trying more to play the part.
Sweater: Target I Similar pants: Loft I Similar boots: Target
It is officially the new year. Welcome to 2019! I wore this outfit to work and then dinner this past weekend and it kept me super warm and was super comfortable to get me through the day. The sweater has a slight stretch and a metallic threading. It comes in 2 colors, a white with a black print or this adorable gray version. If you add a cute little button down underneath it adds the perfect layered look.
Cardigan: Target I Similar button down: Brooks Brothers I Similar shoes: Kenneth Cole
The sun has been shining alot this week. Most of the week it was freezing cold however on Friday it was almost 50deg out. It felt so nice! This weekend it is supposed to be in the 40s which will be a nice break from the freezing cold. When it is cold, I pretty much live in thick, comfortable sweaters and cardigans. I found this one at Target and it is so warm! I love the length so I can wear it with leggings. I can wear it with a dress or with some jeans. It is a perfect versatile sweater. I paired it in this picture with a cute button down that I also got from Target about a year ago. I love this look. It is polished and put together for work yet super comfortable and warm. A good button down and a good cardigan are both key pieces in any wardrobe.
Happy Shopping and stay warm out there!
